Things We Learned From This Episode

1. Set a schedule that gravitates around the things you care about the most (04:06)

From the beginning, it’s important to set your schedule around your family. This way, it’s easier in the future to make time for the important events in your children’s lives. One of the advantages of being an entrepreneur is that even though you might work more than a 9-5 employee, you can also learn to work less. It is possible to become more productive and be able to take days off to spend with your family.


2. How working less can lead to smarter hiring decisions (06:00-08:00)

Forcing yourself to make the decision of taking more time off to spend with your family will influence your hiring decisions. You may find yourself more likely to hire people who are self-starters and are capable of getting things done. You’ll see the value of employees who can come up with new ideas and bring more revenue to your company without you having to be there all the time.


3. How to block negative thoughts (23:56- 25:00)

Anyone who is successful struggles with some self-doubt. Reframing and meditation can help you block the inner critic and enjoy life as it is.


When you are working less, you are forced to become more productive and find people who don’t require much guidance. As a parent and a business owner, it’s crucial to find self-starters and people who can come up with new ways to make your business grow. If you want to make more money while working less, you have to find people who are willing to go the extra mile for their success and, ultimately, yours.
