EP27 Brian & Amber Yaussy: How to Build a Successful Company With Your Spouse



In this episode of DYB Podcast, Steve interviews Brian and Amber Yaussy, owners of Creations by Brian.

Brian started his life in business by immersing himself in a family business.

However, Brian felt the need to establish his own presence through his own business, and with the help of his wife, has created something special that is set for success.

Brian and Amber talk about what their business brings to the table, how they put communication at the top of their list of priorities, and just how they keep their business and personal relationships with one another healthy.



  • The Upsides and Downsides of Working within a Family Business
  • How Bryan and Amber are capable of Creating Synergy in their Business
  • How to keep communication open while staying tactful
  • What it’s like Running a Business as a Couple





“Working for the family business, you get fired a lot.”

“We’re still learning our lessons.”

“We try to be intentional about every 6 months to do something just for our marriage.”

“It’s about communicating. It’s about recognizing our strengths and our weaknesses. We have to make sure that relationship is protected first and foremost because that is going to be there after the business.”

“Our goals were quite limited by what we thought possible. We didn’t know what was possible.”

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
