Screw The Nine to Five

I'm going to be honest for a moment. When Josh and I started working together, we felt like we were the only couple out there doing the entrepreneurial thing together.

We felt very out of place in Toronto.

After packing our bags and moving to Thailand, things got a bit easier because we were surrounded by so many like-minded people. We were still craving that couple connection though. You know what I mean...that couple you just jive with, can talk for hours with, laugh with, be honest with, and share the struggles with.

About a year ago I stumbled across UK couple Mish and Rob from MakingItAnywhere.com. Now, these two have a wickedly successful business - or should I say businesses; they have 5! - and have an incredible story.
