We’ve heard (and been told many, many times) that you shouldn’t go into business with a friend. That is good advice…for most people. Everyone thinks that they are the exception but I think we really are. Friends like us aren’t something you pick up one day and toss aside the next, but that’s probably because we aren’t friends – we’re family. We’ve been through it all together in the last 20+ years, we’ve lived & worked together, fought, made peace with the fact that we don’t have to agree on everything, laughed (so much), cried (more than we’d like), watched each other get married, bought houses on the same street, dog-sat for each other, made big mistakes together, picked each other up, drank champagne in the afternoon, and we’ve lived life together. CES is an extension of us and we love where we are and what we are doing right now. We’re going after the things we love – together.
And yeah, we take the title Best Friend pretty serious around here.
