    You are such an adorable couple! Just curious as to what capacity your fiancé works in your business. It sounds great but my husband doesn’t have a lot of creativity. He’s always been in finance or sales. We get along both working from home but not together. How did you make the transition to him working WITH you?

    Just out of curiosity, what specifically does your fiance do for Saffron Avenue? Photography, design, web design? Manage client accounts, marketing, send emails, organize finances + budget? You two seem like such a great fit (as a couple and as biz partners), and am curious how he took his knowledge + experience from a local brewery and transitioned to freelance design. Maybe I can convince my husband to do the same! ;)

      Hi Ann,
      Definitely! You are correct, he manages a lot of the internal items (so no design at all). Like quickbooks, estimates/invoices, trying to teach him photography, saving final files for clients, shop management, print ordering and estimating, and taking online classes for web development. As for his experience, he actually started the process of each brew. Since his position had to be very detailed (or else he would screw up mass amounts of brews) he is now super detailed when it comes to my business (aka my finances :) So, the transition wasn’t too difficult..so it wasn’t like had to go from brewing to designing logos!

    Agreed so much about separate offices! People think it’s crazy that my husband and I have separate offices but we just could not work in the same place as our working styles are so much different. We definitely have different working hours so that never works out for us but sharing calendars and having meetings helps keeps us on track. Love this post!

  4. Loved this post! My boyfriend of 7 years and I work from home(not together though) and I thought I’d dislike it and that it would put a lot of pressure on our relationship but it’s actually been the exact opposite! I wouldn’t have it any other way :)

    Oh my goodness – this is just like Dan and I! We’ve been together for nine years and have worked together throughout that time. I wouldn’t have it any other way, I love working with him. I always find it strange when other couples tell us that they couldn’t bear to work with their other halves as I think they’re missing out so much. Lovely to hear of another couple making it work x

    Thank you so much for writing this post! My fiancé is going to be stationed in Italy and I’ve had to give up a full-time job I love and start a new full-time job I’ve only dreamed about – blogging! Your post has reassured me that I’m doing the right thing by taking a leap, and my fiancé unexpectedly said one of the most sweetest things ever when I was getting my blog started: “I think it’s time we invested in you.”

    Thank you again for being a brave example to us bloggers!

      Oh I love reading this! And Italy, what a great place to blog in, right!? I couldn’t be more excited for you, blogging can open so many doors and is actually quite freeing. Plus, it’s amazing having a supportive hubby..it means the world.

      Wishing you the very best!!
