You’re listening to the heart and hustle podcast. We’re your hosts, Landon MccCleod and Andrew Roman. The boys are taking over today!
Andrew: People like this tend to be a little more one-sided with things. She can dive into her work 24/7 and pump it out and crush it but sometimes not always catch up to all other things happening in life. It’s an adventure and fun, but hard to get her attention sometimes.
Landon: When I met Evie I hadn’t and still haven’t met anyone who is that passionate about that many things and has the work ethic behind it. A lot of times you see people and hear people and talk about what they want to do and they don’t do it or don’t know how to do it. It’s cool to see these two who are passionate and go after it. With all that being said the harder part is when you are so passionate about business how to balance life outside of the business. Even in parts of the business, we can’t do all things perfectly, learn how to jungle or delegate the things you don’t love or aren’t good at.
Landon: Mine would be recent because we just got engaged a few weeks ago. It was really special. I didn’t want to go above and beyond to exhaust her since I proposed to her at the end of a long season. She and I had a scavenger hunt in Redding five years ago and she loved it. Five years later, what a better way to propose than put her on a scavenger hunt throughout our city, and then I was on a hillside waiting for her. It was exactly what it should have been, it wasn’t over the top extravagant but not simple, it was special and perfect.
Andrew: Our wedding was really special. I can’t label one of them. There are too many things to choose just one, like getting married, having our daughter, and our trip to New Zealand.
Andrew: Our personalities are pretty opposite. She is an extrovert person and I am an introverted person. She is very emotional and I am more detail-oriented. We are very different in a lot of regards. We are the definition of opposites attract.
Landon: I kind of have had this internal conflict if I am introverted or extraverted. When we grow up it makes us more introverted or extroverted from the experiences that we have gone through. I think naturally I am an extrovert but I think I recharge alone not with people unless it is one on one. Evie is very much the life of the party- an extroverted person. We’re similar but her personality is a lot more extroverted than I am. We do match well together.
Andrew: No never. Not in the slightest. I am who I am.
Landon: Not really, I am confident in who I am. We all have our personalities and different ways to approach things. Never have had a problem.
Andrew: I’ve never had trouble with that because Lindsey and I have traded off who has worn the pants in our marriage. When we first got married, I wore the pants and I worked a job as she just started going full-time in photography. Then that fall I was a student and worked two part-time jobs and then we used every cent that she made in photography to pay the bills. Then I went to the coast guard. My paycheck paid the bills and her paycheck was the fun money. Now that I am out of the coast guard her paycheck does everything. We’ve done back and forth and I don’t think I’ll take them back again but it has never bothered me too much.
Landon: I think it is something that we will figure out more in the future. We both have a healthy understanding and mindset of money. Money is a by-product of working hard. She didn’t come from a ton of money, I didn’t come from a ton of money. Money wasn’t something we stepped into or were given. We are people who work hard constantly. I have never felt threatened by her income. I always want to support and come alongside her. I have never felt intimated by a money role.
Andrew: It’s the division of labor in our marriage. Over-communicate, you are a team working together and can figure it out. It shifts more towards me supporting her more during those seasons.
Landon: It’s me learning her love languages, knowing what she loves and needs when she is exhausted. How can I serve her, how can I love her and help her? Come alongside her the best. Knowing to be gracious and passionate in those seasons. That is my constant mindset.
Andrew: I usually try to make her set down her phone regularly because I refuse to have a conversation with her if she is on her phone. In terms of how often, it’s daily. How often does she stop me to redo and record something? Probably every couple of days a week.
Landon: I noticed at the beginning of our relationship we would go to do things and I would want to capture it on video. It was back in 2016-17 of being caught up in that season of starting to do things just to post about it. You aren’t fully engaged in what you are doing to enjoy it but more to show the world. I deleted my social media for a year, but when we first started dating I found us filming everything or what it felt like filming everything. I had to communicate that I felt like I was performing when I wanted it to be just us.
Andrew: When they are together I see God working. I see the Holy Spirit interacting between the two of them. The synergy of the two of them working together is absolutely beautiful. If there is ever an opportunity for Lindsey to get out of Kansas to see Evie I say take it because their time spent together is so bountiful, life-giving and they flow in a way that I have never seen people flow together. It’s a flow that is hard to describe. Things just seem easy, it is teamwork that is natural.
Landon: It’s wild that they have worked remotely for all of their careers, when they are together it is unbelievable what they can get done.
Andrew: I listen to them in order. Right now I am on 120 something and there is 140 something. Lindsey is emotionally attached to me listening so that is why I listen to it.
Landon: I listened to Brady’s episode and a handful of others but I don’t know why I don’t listen to it. I’m a bad fiance, I should listen to it more.
Andrew: Maybe, we talk about it a lot. Lindsey gets anxious with all her eggs being in the Heart basket. We think about where we want to put our time or ways to invest in other avenues. We love real estate, maybe landlords one day? A lot of times we throw around business ideas, but we are not interested in starting something for utility but are only focused on starting something for passion.
Landon: We both love businesses and starting businesses. I love trying new things and starting new things. We want to be careful to not start a business that is dependent on both of us working in the business every day in the first year or so of marriage. We don’t want to run a business together in our first year of marriage together, we want to have a different schedule and different jobs. With that being said we do have a few businesses that we run together, but we have different tasks/roles so we’re not necessarily side-by-side doing them together. As an entrepreneur who constantly has ideas, they’re all good ideas, but it’s doing the right thing at the right time and not doing the right thing at the wrong time.
