Ep 8: Parenting Tips For Online Entrepreneurs
A lot of people use their kids as an excuse as to WHY they can’t build their biz. When really they should be your reason to push harder!
Or we hear things like, “It’s easy for you to build your biz cause there’s two of you”.
Newsflash…. There wasn’t always two of us! We were both building our own businesses as single parents before we met each other.
No matter how you grew up…if you grew up in a stable home with everything you needed; or if you grew up not so fortunate….
The thing that will be key for you is to LET GO OF YOUR EXCUSES!!!
There will always be excuses ready to pop up. You’ll always be busy, or tired, or broke, or whatever excuse you let run your life….. if you don’t LET THEM GO.
>>>Tips for single parents building their biz:
-Find an hour or two every morning/night/lunch to get in some YOU time to building your biz. Wesley got up early in the morning, took 30 minutes during her lunch break, and stayed up after bedtime for another hour or two to build her biz as a single parent.
-Ryan got super organized and strict with his time and planned out when he was gonna spend his time working on his biz.

-You gotta find your groove and what works for you.
-You must know where your time is going.
-Make a commitment to work on your biz a couple hours a day.
>>>Tips for couples building their biz:
-Plan out your schedule for the week (as best as possible) to make sure you both still get YOU (and biz) time and time with the kids.
-Schedule out family time, dinner time, etc.
-Use google calendar or something to stay on track.
-Have your spouse keep you on track.
You can’t let your kids run your life!
A lot of parents don’t want to take the time to PARENT. They don’t want to take the time to use things as an actual parenting moment. Its important to take the time to explain, teach, and actually parent as an authority in their lives.
You need to check your kids when they act ridiculous!!! Such as crying bloody murder for absolutely no reason.
Stop giving your kids every single thing that they want. That is not how it works in this world and it shouldn’t be what you teach them.
Teach your kids how to be independent. But at the same time- let them know that YOU are still the authority.
There are ALWAYS teaching moments. Step up as a parent and use them as a teaching moment!
Our job is to raise them to be independent, respectful kids/teenagers/adults.
Let go of your excuses!
Stop letting your kids run your life!
