I think you just gotta respect the lines. It’s not easy, because when you’re really passionate about something, you can vent and be more direct with family, because you’ve got that implicit love and care for each other that makes you feel like you can be more direct. And you’ve been through a lot with family that you can deal with it, but it was obviously a huge concept with a lot of people and with my parents when Andy was about to move across. But I knew Andy was the best for the job, and he’s so incredibly important as the custodian of the brand, the face of the organization and the culture.
We’ve played different roles - he’s been very respectful of the ways I want to push the business, and I’ve been probably not been as respectful, but certainly considerate of Andy’s experience in marketing, brand-building, partnerships, understanding how they should develop organically and grow. It’s been really terrific, worked really well. And the other thing that’s very different - Alexandra and I have very different skillsets and backgrounds. We didn’t get the same classes at university, but we’ve brought them together to create Bluestone. And I don’t think the company would be nearly as strong without all of us bringing together our different backgrounds. I’m proud of the job we’ve done with listening to each other, being respectful of each other’s backgrounds and points of view.
