Chait and Cunningham walk through the streets of New York.
It's a been a "long time" since Megan Cunningham and Daniel Chait have had any time to binge watch Netflix together.
Planning their weeks as a couple, as parents and as founders and CEOs of their own companies often means a five-way conference call with the two of them, their assistants and their nanny. They also try to coordinate their frequent business trips so that one of them is always around for their 7-year-old son, Jack.
While they both try to focus on their home life during the weekends, it's hard for work not to take up some space given that both spouses run ambitious enterprises. "It puts a strain on how much time you can devote to nonbusiness conversations," said Cunningham, who runs Magnet Media Films, a branded content studio. Her husband heads up Greenhouse, a recruiting software company.
Chait and Cunningham said the communication skills they have learned as leaders have been a plus. "You have to have the trust and energy of a large team, so you have to project those things. Trust and vulnerability translate really well at home," Chait said.
