Being a stay-at-home parent and running a side hustle is not as easy as it may seem, especially when your kids are still toddlers, but this is definitely not an excuse not to be successful at what you do. The rewards of having the peace of mind, always being there at every moment, and doing what most parents would want to do for their children are your biggest motivations.
In this exciting episode, allow Mike to share how it is like to be a super hands-on stay-at-home dad to a 3-year old toddler and 7-month old baby while keeping sane and building and running his digital empire.
“The guilt of when you’re with your family you are thinking about work and when you’re at work you’re thinking about your family and I’m sure you experience that now without kids and it’ll only gets worse when you have kids. You need to make sure that you have the things in place and that you do the work so that way you can unplug guilt-free”- Mike Yanda
