Greetings…

I spent most of 2018 pushing off the idea of starting a family. The Clockwork book was launching, we were building a new business, growing a team, I was speaking and traveling all over the world…

I’ve spent 10+ years mastering operational efficiency, systems, teams & lean thinking and it STILL felt downright SCARY to throw a pregnancy into that mix just because there are so many unknowns, but then I realized this was the perfect time to run the 4-week vacation litmus test on my own business.

I know that same fear is true for so many business owners that I speak with. They…

  • Delay starting a family because they can’t fathom running the business AND having a baby
  • Suffocate the newest business idea because they don’t even have time for the current business, let alone another start another one
  • Feel the pressure of being on vacation and rush back
    to work
  • Shutdown the business when a parent gets ill because they have no idea how to take care of both…
I want you to be able to take the maternity or paternity leave that corporate never gave you…

Enjoy the time with an elderly parent, take the sabbatical, start the next business idea, or heck… even just stay home with your family and let them get some uninterrupted QT with you… without worrying about the business tanking in your absence.

We often talk about having a financial emergency fund for our finances… but what about for our time? We need to be prepared not because we want emergencies to happen, but because we can be pretty confident that eventually, they WILL…

The tire is going to go flat,
The kids are going to need to do to the doctor,
The dishwasher is going to break…

Your business needs to run regardless of your personal life events… and the only way is to remove yourself as the linchpin.

Wish you were here,
