In this episode, we talked about:

  • Her journey, where, after years as an engineer, she woke up and realized this was not what she wanted anymore.
  • When she heard “Maybe in 10 or 15 years you will be able to do this.” and how it made her feel.
  • Being a two entrepreneurial family.
  • How her parents influenced their children on the path from dreams and goals to reality.
  • Instead of trying to influence our children to follow a traditional job to make a living, help them find a way to make a living with their dream or passion job.
  • How she applies her engineering background to engineering life.
  • Sibling rivalries and spacing out our children.
  • How she manages her business and parenthood.
  • Her complex family schedule and how to create pockets of time for business.
  • How to make time for each other as a two entrepreneur household.
  • The important steps she took in her business.
  • The benefits of slow evolutionary growth so that you grow alongside your business so you can be ready to scale.
  • No matter where you are, we all have the need for structure and process and we all have the need to be imaginative and creative.
