Linda Lubitz Boone and Norm Boone
Ms. Boone is founder of The Lubitz Financial Group in Miami and Mr. Boone is founder of Mosaic Financial Partners in San Francisco. Their schedule has Ms. Boone in Miami two weeks each month and in San Francisco the other two, while Mr. Boone spends three weeks in San Francisco and one week in Miami each month.
"We’ve been doing this for almost 17 years, so I guess it’s working. We give up a few things in making these choices, but life is so much more full for us this way," Mr. Boone said.
“For each other’s business, we’re more consultants-lite or just advising friends rather than being too involved. I think that helps to maintain a level of separation that spouses need on the work side, so that the marriage part doesn’t get interfered with. It allows us to be best friends, and eliminates the potential for problems if we were also business partners," he said.
"I know it may sound a bit sappy, but being in love really helps on those very early mornings when the alarm goes off at 5 am to go to the airport to fly to San Francisco," Ms. Boone added.
