I doubt anyone has ever said that building your own business will be a breeze, but it's funny how so many of us don't admit how righteously gawd-awful it can feel in the beginning.

Learning how to build sites, struggling to understand new programs, battling with your partner in an effort to figure out your key roles...day-ummm, it can be rough.

Which brings me to this week's couple spotlight, Charlie and Brittany. These two are only 6 months deep into business together and are speaking candidly about the trials, tribulations, and downright roller coaster of a ride they are going through. Not only is it refreshing to hear people speak openly and honestly about it all, but it's incredible to hear how far they've come in 6 short months.

Good lawdddd, I need to get something off my chest.

Not long ago Josh and I landed in North America for some quality famjam time after a year and a half in Asia. Besides the obvious cultural and climate changes (hot damn, it was freeeeeeezing!), one of the first things we noticed was how soul sucking Toronto was for our productivity and mindset.

Now, we don't want to harp on 9-5'ers or sound harsh, but being surrounded by those who are locked into the corporate world never seem to understand what it's like when you're running an online business. Again, it's not their fault, but it is incredibly detrimental when you're trying to keep the momentum going in your business.

Our short stay in Toronto really exemplified how being in the right environment can influence business, which is exactly what we be talkin' bout in this episode.

So you aren't loving your day job, but what are you going to do about it? Quit?

Just up and ditching your 9-5 in favor of creating your dream job might sound like a wicked leap of faith, but it can also be, well...a littttttle misguided.

When jumping out of plane, you better have a parachute and the same goes for your job. Ok, so ditching your day job isn't as drastic as hopping out of an airplane cruising at 10,000ft, but you get the picture.

In this podcast we were inspired by our friends Sophie and Carl to dish a few tips on how to build a business while balancing your current day job. If you heard Sophie and Carl's podcast episode, then you know Carl is still working full time while they build up their business enough to replace that income.

Finding time to unwind, while still making the most of each day can be tough, but boy have they nailed it.
