How Couples in Business Succeed, with Cole and Sanja Hatter


Cole Hatter is back on For the Love of Money and this time we’ve asked his wife and partner in crime, Sanja Hatter, to join him. I love having couples on the show because I enjoy hearing how other couples make working together work. But even more importantly, I find my audiences resonate with these conversations the most.

First and foremost, I love how family-centered both Cole and Sanja are. With two kids and a close relationship with their family members, they truly have set a standard that I hope to match when we have kids down the road. And the love doesn’t stop there. Cole and Sanja practice generosity whenever they can whether it’s with their time or money. They are committed to showing people unconditional love in business and everyday life.
