Starting a business and making it a success is one of the most challenging things you can do, career-wise. Meanwhile, having children and raising a family is one of the most difficult things you can do personally. So it would be absolutely insane to try to both at once, right?
But thousands of us do, every single day.
Some of us even do this as single parents, or with special-needs kids, or with ailing parents. Or all of the above! It's tough; no, wait ... it's exhausting.
But-and here's where it gets really crazy-even with all the blood, sweat, and tears, the guilt and the doubt, you wouldn't have it any other way, would you?
No, we didn't think so. And neither would we.
That's why we wrote this book. We wrote it for you, the unsung heroes of the business world, who are out there on the front lines, following your dreams and passions. You're the ones out there trying to get it done and do right by your family.
We want to show you that it is possible to do both and still maintain your sanity. This book will show you how.
Join us as we:
- Bust through the myths surrounding entrepreneurship and work/life balance
- Walk you through the five phases of business life, teaching you how to cope with the phase you're in now, and set yourself up well for the next phase.
- Teach you strategies to help you deal with your biggest issues: guilt, stress, and lack of time
