Starting a Business with Your Spouse with Stephanie and Ethan Bull

So you’ve just been laid off from your job. You’ve got a wife and kid at home, and you’re in a new city. Does the thought occur to you to start a brand new business with your spouse? Maybe not, but it’s just the risk that Ethan and Stephanie Bull took in starting their pro-assisting remote assistance business. Listen to today’s interview and learn about what it took to get them started and what it’s like to work together as a married couple.

Stephanie Bull is ProAssisting’s co-founder and the former EA for J. Crew’s CEO and the CEOs of two multi-billion-dollar hedge funds. Before developing ProAssisting, Stephanie proved herself an expert in the field and a vital addition to the C-suite by fulfilling a variety of roles, including chief of staff, estate manager, and investment liaison.

Ethan Bull is a co-founder of ProAssisting, a next-generation remote, fractional executive assistance firm for business owners and C-suite executives. With a background in hospitality and an expert in the EA space, Ethan has held a variety of senior positions, including Director of Administrative Services and senior EA to the president and CEO at Rochester Regional Health.
