Danielle: Well, I would say we're building and becoming our dream job right now. For now, we're both keeping our full-time jobs. I'm pretty risk averse myself, so I plan to only transition into running our business full-time when we've achieved particular financial goals and have a bit of a safety net. But on my side, I was always a born leader and I thought I was destined for little more than the mundane nine-to-five. My love for communication started in college, but I started falling in love with marketing and strategy while in college. My first job out of college was at an ad agency,And honestly, it was one of the best things that could have happened for my career, and from there I focused heavily on social media marketing and digital content strategy. And then Shea has been a marketing manager for God, for probably a decade now. After we met, we realized how much our skills complemented each other and after realizing that, it was a no-brainer.
