Invest in the next generation, they’re gonna be running things soon
Nowadays I work from home most of the time. As an entrepreneur and author, I’ve always got several things going on. I like it that way, keeps my mind sharp and my ego in check.
I’ve got 4 kids, right now they are ages 8–16. We homeschool them. We invest in them. Alice and I work hard to create an environment that each one of them can flourish in their own way.
Honestly, we don’t always get it right, but we are purposeful about it.
It’s been an incredible journey for both them and me. I spend 2 hours every morning with Maggie & Owen (16 & 14) working on our businesses. They learn everything from marketing, to video production. Excel to Powerpoint.
It’s hard sometimes, it often takes extra time and works to have them “work” for me, but it’s worth it.
The education we are able to pour into them is truly invaluable.
Of course, they don’t see it, at least not yet, and it’s hard for me and Alice sometimes, we don’t always see it, at least not yet.
The investment is worth it though, it’s about the long game, it’s about the future, theirs, mine, and yours.
What are you doing to invest in the future? Who are you helping? Who are you teaching?
You might not have kids, you might not have the flexibility to teach them as we do right now, but you do have the responsibility to invest. You have learned things others need to know, you have experienced parts of life that have shaped you. You have an obligation to share that with the world.
By doing so, you’ll be investing in yourself, and your legacy.
Remember to invest in the next generation, they’re gonna be running things soon

Spending time with my 7-year-old while doing biz stuff, she LOVES to help any way she can, so cool to get to work with my kids.
