Amy and Mike Nichols, who were married in 2001, are also co-owners of a Dogtopia location in Virginia. "Spouses who run companies together must understand and accept that there is no such thing as a 'work/life balance' -- it's all just 'life' when you own a company," Amy Nichols said. Several other married couples are also involved with brands together, including ZIPS Dry Cleaners, Express Employment Professionals, Watermill Express and Elements Therapeutic Massage.
