In episode 10, I answer questions about how to distance yourself from clients who bring you down without causing drama, how you can start up a business even if you are short on cash, and why you shouldn’t confuse being busy with being successful.
In episode 9, I discuss how to talk to your children about work related responsibilities that take time away from them - such as deadlines, meetings, and projects - in a way that helps them understand and clears up misunderstandings that may lead your kids to think that you don't want to spend time with them.
In episode 8, I answer some important questions from viewers about how to tell when you’re getting stressed, how to manage a bad employee who desperately needs the job, and what you can do to help your family understand and support your need for time to yourself. I also go into managing a schedule and managing 360 reviews with your family.
In episode seven, I talk about something a lot of us don’t have much of anymore: time to ourselves. This episode covers why it’s so important for us to get downtime, how we can know when we need to take some time to ourselves, and how to do it when it feels like we’re up to our ears in work appointments and kids’ baseball games.
In episode six, I reveal the three major realizations I had that helped me break free from my 70 hour work weeks so I could spend more quality time with my family. The big secret? These realizations are so huge they could totally change the way you do business.
In episode 5, I answer questions about how to find time for our families inside of 60-hour work weeks, how to really tie your dreams to your family’s dreams, and how to talk to your kids about why you do the things you do.
In episode 4, we discuss how using a 360 review - where you let your children review your work as a parent - can not only help you improve as a mother or father but can also help you build a trust-based, communication-based relationship with your children.
In episode 3, we talk about managing family time and how to make sure your kids get the attention they need from you without it affecting your work. We talk about making and breaking promises and why you need to take time for you.
In episode 2, I cover how we can tie our overarching career dreams into our family’s passions and ambitions. Learn how to make your children understand the reasons you go to work and how it benefits them and their dreams.

The Self Employed Parent runs 3 times a week, airing on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Monday and Wednesday's shows are either about my life and my experience on how I balance my business and my family and how I can win on both sides, or they're interviews with other entrepreneurs and parents who have their own unique experiences with business, family, and the balance of both.
Every Friday is a Q&A to get back to the audience and make sure they're getting exactly what they need from the show.
The Self Employed Parent Family is becoming an amazing community and I can't wait to move forward with you!
