What’s In This Episode:
Kids take up a lot of our time and energy. So why would we choose to build our businesses at the same time? But if it’s all chaos all the time, you might as well!
“There’s a whole new method to the madness.” – Jill
Do kids help or hurt your business? Kids are great for your business, says Jill. They make you figure out how to be more organized with your time. And when you’re starting out your business, the skills you learn as a parent – like multitasking – are useful, says Brad, but it becomes less so as the business grows.
“I have kids. I have a business. Make it work.” – Brad
When Jill built her businesses, it wasn’t like she had everything set up right away. She experienced a lot of trial and error. So when Maddie Boening of Sunstone Candles leaves a voicemail about how to connect her brand message to her brand, Jill knows there’s a whole lot of trial and error that goes into something like that. It’s extremely rare that you have everything ready to go, even brand messaging. So now’s the time to do it, starting by writing a brand message in your own voice. If you’re not sure how, ask your customers, your friends, your followers!
