Work/Life Balance Is a Thing? Parents & the Gig Economy (with Chris Cashdollar)


There are never enough hours in the day and I am tired all the time. Self-employed parents know this all too well. Raising children while running a business is akin to having two overlapping full-time jobs. Working too much? Nagging worries take root that we aren’t spending sufficent time with our family. When the laptop closes? Concern creeps in that we aren’t putting enough meaningful hours into our work. It’s a constant mental juggling act. Thankfully, there are strategies we can employ to short-circuit these struggles. We’ll discuss how real people have also stumbled down this rocky path and have learned hard-fought techniques to reset their wayward career ambitions without sacrificing the all-more-important quality time spent with their families.
