Being small business owners, we know it's hard to draw boundaries between working and resting. The line between work life and family life is sometimes blurred and often overlaps.
Let's face it, that's a big reason why we like working for ourselves. We can jump from playing trucks with our toddler and rocking the baby to sleep, to answering a client's question about a recent project or booking a photo shoot around our family's schedule. But being our own boss also means we've got to give ourselves some time off. And that can be tough.

We recently visited Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham, Texas. When we arrived, we were greeted by the sign featuring the slogan they've become famous for, "We eat all we can, and we sell the rest."

Of course, even back then it didn't seem to change die-hard fans' view of the "national ice cream of Texas" as ice cream lovers rallied behind their favorite brand.

Especially now that we work from home with the Marken Media Co. office just steps from the kitchen, it's important to us that our environment is part of our inspiration. We work well in a space that inspires us, feels light and airy, and let's face it, also lets us live (with all the laundry piles, toy piles, and random piles of unusually large size).
