Thank you Angela for your bravery.  It's not often that you get to hear someone's story, warts and all.  It's empowering, its inspiring and freeing. I've been working on my own struggle to get out from under years of depression, anxiety and fear.  I really believe that this is my year to take back who I used to be and who I want to be.  Thank you for sharing your story, I look forward to reading more posts.

I love my business coach, @johnfalchetto for exactly this reason. When you are in the middle of building your business, you don't take the time to look around and see how you are doing. When you can talk to someone outside of your business it helps you gain perspective. I've had a number of small business ventures fail but a few have succeeded. I want to continue to make good choices for my life and my business and for me that means having someone there to bounce ideas off of and help me see things that I would otherwise miss. Or even knowing when its time to throw in the towel.

thanks for writing about your unique perspective on this topic.

Boy you hit the nail on the head. "When we say “No,” that inner 5 year-old throws a tantrum and starts sabotaging anything but the thing we’ve said No to."

Mine does that on a regular basis. Sounds like you have some exciting stuff coming up, good luck! Looking forward to seeing what it is!

Great article Ameena! Eric and I have been working together for about 12 years now. We definitely know the ins and outs of making a relationship work both at work and at home. I wrote an article on the subject as well on the @fourfourmedia blog http://fourfourmedia.com/2010/12/14/for-better-or-worse-working-with-your-spouse/

I agree that is is very important to set up clearly defined roles, took us a while to figure that one out. I think my favorite part of working together is sharing the burden of running a business with my best friend. He helps me look at things from a different perspective when I get upset and he truly understands how hard my job can be and visa versa. We support each other and yes sometimes we fight but over the last 12 years we have made it work with a lot of understanding and talking things out.

You guys seem to work very well together, thanks for the great post and keep making it work!

Trying to build community as we speak! Thanks for the great article, some really hit the nail on the head for me. Like the article on a day in the life of the COO and Creating an editorial calendar, genius!! I had stared my editorial calendar but this took it to a whole new level.

Thanks to @John Falchetto for introducing me to your blog and to you! Have a wonderful weekend!
