PHOENIX, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Total Care Connections (https://www.totalcareconnections.com), Arizona's most trusted home care and assisted living provider, will be recognized on the INC 5000 list at the 35th Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala will be held October 18- 20, 2016 at the JW Marriott Hill Country in San Antonio. The list recognizes the 5000 fastest growing, privately held companies in the country. The owners of the company, Daniel & Dani Stringer, are married and run the company together as a team full-time. But it wasn't always that way.
Prior to the company reaching 117% growth in 2015, Daniel had been leading the company on his own as the company's CEO since its inception in 2009. But it was in 2012 that everything changed. Daniel met and ultimately married the love of his life, Dani, and before long, Dani became a vital role in the executive leadership of the company. Dani had become the youngest nurse practitioner ever to be licensed in the history of the United States at the age of 18 in 2010 and has been recognized around the country for her academic achievements.
As full-time "marriedpreneurs," as they've begun to call themselves, Daniel & Dani have demonstrated that two people can work together full-time, keep the spark of their love for each other, and build a strong marriage all at the same time. When asked what it's like to work full-time with your spouse, Daniel said, "We are literally together 24 hours per day and we wouldn't have it any other way. The key is that we both recognize each other's strengths and welcome them, both in our relationship and in our business."
"With nearly 150 employees under our leadership today, we found that the unity in our marriage and the encouragement we provide to each other is something we treasure even more as it is the foundation for our success as entrepreneurs," Dani explains. "Instead of the business becoming a source of division, it is actually what brings us even closer in our relationship and in our marriage."
As a nurse practitioner, Dani has assumed the company's top clinical role as the organization's Director of Nursing. Along with Daniel, they have doubled the size of their business, acquired two competitors, and have plans to expand into other markets in the coming year. "It's amazing what two people who love each other can do when they are united, first in their relationship, and secondly on the common goal of serving the community in small business," Daniel explains.
The couple inspires other entrepreneurs and marriages around the country through their blog, DanielandDani.com (http://www.DanielandDani.com). Daniel explains it perfectly: "We want to see people thrive in their marriage while pursuing their dreams. We believe that success in business is not worth it at the expense of your family. But when you are united with your spouse, mutually supporting one another, anything is possible."
