For Better or for Worse

Come Together

Consider the long hours, short vacations and diminished social lives so prevalent in today's work force, and it's no wonder entrepreneurship is bringing men and women together. "I think you're going to see more couples going into business together," asserts Keylan Qazzaz, 33, Wolcott's wife and vice president of Rocketworks. "There are lots of couples who don't really know what their partner does on a day-to-day basis, but we get to see each other excel every day."

Putting the soul of your marriage into a business that could very well go belly-up in six months is risky, but it can also be rewarding. "Some people think it's wrong to make the business the center of your life," says Marshack. "I don't think that's true. If this is your passion-if you love it-and it's a reflection of you and your values, why not be rewarded for your cause by sharing it with the person you love and trust the most?"
