Meet Team Dempsy: From Unclear to Income Generation

By: O.L./Sway Buckley

Of the three marridpreneur couple types, the indie-preneur requires the most finesse. 

As a quick recap, there are three primary marriedprenuer types that each have their red flags to look out for. You can learn more about them here.

We used to be solely indie-preneurs living in our individual worlds and starting to feel like roommates. It was horrible. 

Marriedpreneur LifeIf you are an indie-preneur type of couple where both spouses are building individual and separate businesses, it's crtical to have a Marriedpreneur Operating Systems Planner to avoid the temptation to get swallowed up in your worlds, forgetting that you are even married. Forgetting may be a strong word, but putting your marriage on the back burner is the same sentiment. 

Either way, it isn't helpful or healthy. 

But there is a way to make it work!

We had to overcome these pitfalls (and, to this day, must keep boundaries in place to avoid returning). But we are not an anomaly when it comes to this kind of victory. 

Allow me to introduce you to Horace and Cynthia Dempsey. 

Team Dempsey is an indie-preneur couple we have been consulting on their marriedpreneur journey. 

He is a VA 100% Benefits Coach, and she is an Intellectual Property attorney for faith-based women entrepreneurs. They are in two totally different worlds when it comes to business. 

When they came to us, they were tired of going in circles and unclear on how to get momentum to launch their separate business initiatives fully. 

Marriedpreneur PodcastSince the Dempsy's started implementing the Marriedpreneur Operating Systems Planner, they have:

  1. Created their annual MEP (Marriage Enrichment Plan) to prioritize their marriage and clarify their marriage goals for the year.
  2. Built separate (but complimentary) business launch calendars that support their marriage goals (not strain them). 
  3. Streamlined their systems so they could support each other's launches throughout the year
  4. Implemented an organizational chart for their growth and, as a result, hired their first team member to support their goals
  5. Increased their business revenue by 100% as they are now charging premium pricing for the premium results they offer

These are only a few of the wins they've had since using the Marriedpreneur Operating Systems Planner. This doesn't speak to their quality of life being up-leveled, where they have more peace and clarity for the next steps. That's priceless. 

We hope this client win encourages your journey as marriedpreneurs. If you want the same results as the Dempseys, schedule a free success mapping call with us here.
