Julie and her sisters tell their story
Today’s show is an extra special edition of #PoisedforExit! I invited my sisters, Connie and Wendy to talk about being raised in an entrepreneurial home and how it impacted our lives as entrepreneurs.
The lessons shared were many, but one that stood out for all three of us was how self motivation and belief played essential roles in the success of the business each parent ran. Knowing you can do it and having the drive to make it happen are the bedrocks for any entrepreneurial success story. Another lesson learned was tenacity. Having a ‘never give up’ attitude, even when things get tough were instilled into each of us. How different things would have been for us as working adults, had our parents not ventured into the world of business ownership. Like their parents before them (on both sides) they knew they could do better and be happier working for themselves, and that proved to be very true.
I’m keeping the show notes short so you can take time to enjoy the episode.
If you are business owner and have children, our insights might provide some comfort and validation if you’re trying to raise independent thinkers.
It’s never too early to start planning.
