America's Swimming Pool Company featured on CNNMoney.com


America's Swimming Pool Company was featured on CNNMoney.com in an article entitled, "I sleep with my business partner." The article was written by Catherine Clifford, and features ASP Franchisees Ryan and Courtney Eiland. The Eilands talk about the advantages and disadvantages of being spouses and coworkers in a small business work environment. Click here to view the entire article.

Before starting their pool company in 2007, the Eilands considered it a backup plan. But less than a year later, Ryan was laid off from his job in pharmaceutical sales. He began working on the company full time, while Courtney continues to do some interior design.
The couple currently has one shop, and plan to open a second one in the winter. They have eight employees.
They've found that working together on their small business has many benefits vs. being at a large company.
