Guiding Principle, Quote, or Mantra
Greg – “I don’t have to do it all. It doesn’t all have to be perfect. And I think other people know how to do stuff too.” When he’s off in the weeds is when he’s looking at what other people are doing and not what he’s doing.
When You “Tripped Up” in a Partnership
Antonia & Greg have been together for 40 years, so in that time they’ve had many trip ups in their partnership. One of those more difficult moments came when their kids were teenagers. When you’re together you have so many partnerships. One of those major partnerships is how to parent together.
Greg and Antonia described themselves as “night and day” when it comes to how they think. With that, they both had very different parenting styles. This was a huge challenge for them at points.

Your Proudest Moment in Partnership
One of their proudest moments came with their daughter. You know your kids pretty well but not everything. This was a time of total compassion and their daughter in a time of finding herself.
Near the end of high school she went to them and expressed that she thought she was gay. They told her that they had an idea that it may have been the case. Their daughter jokingly said “why didn’t you tell me?”.
It was such a proud moment of acceptance, trust, and love.
