Besides, we like being together. Everything is more fun; and we find it makes our marriage enormously fulfilling."

Is it true they are together 24 hours a day?

Yes, they are very close and are together 24 hours a day, which was a stipulation of Reed's when they married.

The 24-Hour Commitment is the one aspect of their marriage they both value the most.

When asked about it, Reed says, "We don't expect other couples to live the way we do - they may have different jobs or they may need their space; but for us, being together 24 hours a day forces us to deal with any issues, resolve them quickly, and keep harmony. Besides, we like being together. Everything is more fun; and we find it makes our marriage enormously fulfilling."


Do they dress alike all the time?

Yes, GINIE & REED SAYLES are called THE LOVE TWINS because they dress alike. They dress in matching shirts, jackets, and slacks most of the time. For dressy occasions or when Ginie wears a skirt, they wear coordinating colors or similar fabric.


How does Reed fit into Ginie's career?

Reed is President of Ginie Sayles Enterprises, Inc., and he is the person who completely guides her career. When Ginie was asked repeatedly to give a particular seminar, she turned it down for 2 years until Reed encouraged her to give seminars on the subject. And when Berkeley Books asked her to write a book about it, he pushed to get a preliminary first edition printed of her copyrighted work before signing the contract.

Reed also manages her finances, entirely. He has been both inspiration, motivation, and the guiding force in Ginie's life and career.


How can I apply for The Ginie Sayles Scholarship For Single Parents?

The scholarship is currently available to single parents who are enrolled in Angelo State University in West Texas. The University determines which students receive the scholarship funds: Mrs. Sayles has nothing to do with selection of those who receive it.


Does Ginie give money to single parents or help with their businesses or collaborate with them?

No. The only charity she contributes to is the scholarship because she knows exactly where the money goes.

And the only person she collaborates with on business is her husband; however, she is very proud of those individuals, especially single parents, who venture into their own businesses and she loves to see them succeed.


What is Reed's background?

Reed grew up in a West Texas family who had 2 ranches in Texas, 1 ranch in Australia, as well as oil and gas, and real estate holdings. As for Reed, himself: He was educated in private universities and has a degree in economics and mathematics. He was attracted to oil and gas and spent over forty years in that industry. Not unusual in the oil business, finances frequently go up and down: Reed has experienced both and Ginie has stuck by him during some very hard times. In one of her books, she points out that she would never leave Reed for financial reasons.
