Eric and Lisa Kelly have an explosive relationship. They run a company called Advanced Explosives Demolition, a family business that gets paid to blow up buildings.
"I saw my dad blow a smokestack when I was fourteen and I said, 'that's what I want to do,'" Eric Kelly said in an interview with CNBC's "Power Lunch."
"I didn't know," Lisa Kelly said laughing. "I had no clue I would be here. It definitely was not my chosen field; however, we've made it work really well."
They've made it work for 36 years, traveling across the country and around the world with kids in tow to sites in need of leveling.
According to the Kellys, bringing down a building isn't the hardest part.
"Being able to get past all the city officials, getting all the permits and getting all the insurance in place, all the behind the scenes stuff. In order for the building to actually hit the ground, it is an absolutely mandatory thing that we have to do," said Lisa.
