We find out what happened to the Web.Search.Social puzzle, talk about dumb marketing tactics and discuss the importance of getting dressed for work even if you’re working from your kitchen table.
We’re Ralph and Carol Lynn Rivera – husband and wife, business partners in multiple ventures… and podcasters!
We love running our businesses, so when people say things like, “When are you going to take a break?” We don’t quite understand the question. Our business is part of our lives – just as everything else we do, from hanging with a mojito in our favorite Cuban restaurant, to smoking a cigar, attending a family picnic or enjoying a Tuesday afternoon at a movie matinee.
And that’s why we don’t think there’s such a thing as “work-life balance.”
For us, they aren’t separate things that have to be coordinated. They’re part of who we are. And we bet that’s how most entrepreneurs feel. We’ve just been told so many times to “balance” everything that we started to believe that happiness and success are mere matters of how good we are at juggling.
Our podcast is focused on talking about the WHOLE entrepreneurial life. Not just the part that happens at a desk or with a spreadsheet. We talk about what it’s like to start a business, run a business, succeed and fail in business, all while having a life that includes friends, families, hobbies, fun (and sometimes not fun) and everything that makes us… human.Meet the Units
