Partnerships are never easy, especially when your partner is your spouse – especially when you have kids. Jason Yarusi and his wife Pili have developed a strong partnership on their path to building their multifamily portfolio. And they do it all with three kids that are 5 years or younger. Jason is the co-founder of Yarusi Holdings and co-host of the Jason and Pili Project, which focuses on building wealth and improving health.
Jason is an avid runner, competing in various marathons and ran over 400 miles in April 2020 alone! Jason shares how running extends beyond physical health and helps him with the business. In this episode, he talks about how he and his partner approach conflict, how they balance duties as a couple and business partners, why health is critical, and how he approaches investing during and following COVID-19.
