Starting a family business is not always easy. Different personalities, ideas, and even individual goals can be challenging when it comes to making decisions at the moment of running the business.
In today’s episode with Gaby Grinberg, we’ll talk about starting a business and working with your partner. After the challenges that Gaby and her husband went through when their daughter was born and suddenly being fired from their jobs, they decided to run a business together that remains to this day.
Gaby shares her personal experiences as an entrepreneurial mother and we chat about the challenges of working from home, how to start a family business, how working from home can affect children and the need for barriers between home and work.
This episode will give you the necessary tools to help you keep your relationship away from getting mixed up with business and get the best results in both. Listen in!

Gaby started her career in her beloved Boston, after graduating from Boston University with a degree in communication. She honed her marketing and creative skills at a multi-cultural advertising agency in the client services side of the business. She delved into digital very early in her career and never looked back (though she does have a sentimental place in her heart for anything printed). Her love of writing led her down a path of content development and ultimately to social media marketing. After moving to Minneapolis in 2010, she continued honing her digital chops and worked in various agencies and in-house teams, including Sleep Number and Target. As Vice President and Co-Founder, Gaby heads up the Client Services and Performance Content teams,
and also supports New Business Development and marketing for the agency. She is the unofficial CMO and CCO (Chief Culture Officer) of Proofpoint. She is also ofcially and affectionately known as the “Breaker of Bottlenecks.” While not at work, Gaby enjoys working out, creating photo books, consuming anything related to design and home decor, gardening, spending time with friends and family, and adores being a mom to Lana Rose. In her spare time, she also volunteers with the March of Dimes and is active in the prematurity community in the Twin Cities. One day, she plans to pen a children’s book inspired by the family’s journey with prematurity.
