Ask me what I want my kids to be when they grow up and I won’t hesitate with a reply. One word: happy. And to me, happiness is doing something that you love. Following your dreams. Being fearless. And going for it.
In all honesty, I hope my kids steer clear of anything crazy corporate. I don’t want them working insanely long hours, being caught in rush hour traffic, and having limited time off. Instead, I hope they have an entrepreneurial fire- a passion to take a chance and succeed at working for themselves.
