Episode #67 // Work and Life Partners with David Austin

Today is a very special episode because we’re bringing Emily’s partner in crime—both in work and life—on the show. David Austin is not only Emily’s main squeeze and the father of her child, he’s also her partner at Indie Shopography and our Chief Financial Officer here at Being Boss. We wanted to bring David on the show to talk about the more administrative side of running a creative business and also how he and Emily balance being partners in both work and life.
