Jackie & Mike Rosen

When the foundation of your life takes an unexpected turn, where do you stand? Mike and Jackie of MJ Design and Build are the embodiment of resilience and innovation, stepping into the world of home redesign with a mission to preserve the soul of historical Northern Virginia homes. Their story isn’t just about the mortar and beams; it’s about crafting a legacy in the community, one renovation at a time. Tune in as this power couple spills the secrets of their trade, from the deep emotional ties to each project to the intricate dance of managing a business and marriage simultaneously.

If you’ve ever contemplated the tightrope walk of working with your significant other, this episode is your blueprint for success. Mike and Jackie don’t just share workspace; they’ve harmonized their personal and professional lives, proving that love and labor can coexist. Their candid tales range from setting boundaries to the alchemy of combining strengths, giving you an inside look at their organic marketing magic and their unwavering commitment to integrity and transparency. The pair also pulls back the curtain on managing specialized tradespeople and securing client trust, offering a treasure trove of wisdom for those looking to venture into the construction industry.

This conversation is more than a how-to manual; it’s a heartfelt narrative woven with the threads of small business insights and overcoming personal doubts. Mike and Jackie tackle the critical aspects of project management, from setting realistic timelines to keeping worksites pristine, and dive into the philosophy behind their hiring practices and the strategic outsourcing that keeps their operations smooth. They leave us with an encouraging nudge to trust our instincts, take calculated risks, and remember the softer side of entrepreneurship — including a gentle reminder about the welfare of our four-legged friends. Join us for an episode that’s not just informative but also a testament to the human spirit’s capacity to build, both in business and life.
