With André Shinabarger
“Love or work? Is it possible to change the world, stay in love, and have a healthy family?” That’s the question that André Shinabarger and her social entrepreneur husband, Jeff, explore in their podcast, Love or Work, where they interview and learn from other couples in the journey of marriage, purpose, and parenting.
André sat down with me to discuss her own story as the wife of an entrepreneur, as well as lessons she’s learned from couples they’ve interviewed on their podcast. We discuss how she and Jeff have taken turns in their careers, what it’s like raising kids while working, and her process for working through Jeff’s many, many new ideas. We also talk about the biggest struggle for entrepreneurs in their Plywood People community, and – hint, hint – it’s not business-related.
André and Jeff have a book coming out next year, so follow them for updates on when it will be released! Here’s a quick book synopsis: “Is it possible to pursue your dreams, stay in love, and raise great kids? In Love or Work, popular podcast hosts and founders of Plywood People Jeff and André Shinabarger share proven research, insightful practices, and stories from 100 working couples in this new vision for the modern, working, and purpose-fueled family.”
