In today’s show, we talk with husband-wife team Jerry and Carol Meek, the founders of Desert Star Construction and Glorious Reflections, about working with your spouse, building a business on integrity, and focusing on God over goals. Jerry and Carol met in the high school choir and built a friendship that became lifelong in marriage. God has carried them through the good times and the bad and continually highlights our need for hope in every circumstance.
In the 2008 recession, the Meeks determined not to lay anyone off despite decreasing building projects. So instead, they worked on some special projects that kept the team strong so that when the building started to return, their team was still together and able to rebound quickly. This fierce love for those God has put in their care was passed down from Jerry’s dad, who told him the only thing you own is your integrity. And sure enough, when they stopped focusing on their income goals and made giving goals, the results were amazing!
Today the Meeks have started Glorious Reflections – a collective of leaders who want to live and lead in a way that brings glory to God!

BONUS: a few tips from Carol about working with your spouse: encourage your spouse, plan personal time, be respectful, people are watching. Jerry’s tips: be 100% behind your spouse’s success and don’t treat your customer better than your spouse.
