On this episode, Jen and Jonathan Lewis share how they make both work and love work! They just had their first baby girl, who is the most precious sweet angel. They are frank with the evolution of their relationship as they have pursued making an impact and entrepreneurship. They have the relationship they have and do the work they love because... they have because they’ve worked on it not because it just came to them quickly. That’s what we find to be most true, it isn’t just happily ever after. It's let’s choose to make this happily ever after every day, which they do and share wisdom nuggets of the "how" behind it all.
