Welcome to my blog. This year (2012) I have decided to reshape my blog to focus on a group of people like myself I like to call “Parentprenuers.” A parentprenuer is someone who is a business owner and parent at the same time. We are the backbone of this great country. Without small business the American economy would collapse. Owning a small business is tough enough on its own, then throw in being a parent, life gets interesting.
In my current stage of life I own a small real estate brokerage (Green Door Real Estate) and a custom home building business (Tandem Homes). I am married to my beautiful wife Oakley, and have a soon to be 4-year-old daughter named, Ayla, and a 15 month old daughter named, Joss.
Lets just say life is fun, exciting, stressful, and many days is exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. I am raising two infant daughters and two infant businesses at the same time.
Through this blog I will share with you lessons I have learned through successes, failures, and the wisdom of the council I am constantly seeking. I make a concious effort to surround myself with people who have successful businesses and families. I have enlisted the help of a business and life coach to keep me on track and grounded. I am a committed Christian and lean on my God for help and wisdom. On top of that I read at least 1 to 2 nonfiction books a month and listen to another fiction or nonfiction book a week in my car. I know that I can’t get through life on my own so I am always asking for guidance. I’m not ashamed to admit I need help, because trying to get the best out of myself is frankly tough.
I know I am just one of millions of parentprenuers who struggle to be their best. My goal through this blog is to share with you my wisdom, insights, and just give you hope that in spite of all the struggles, all the distractions, and all the stress this is a great life. I have found most parentprenuers wouldn’t have it any other way.
