Not Falling Behind With Family Life
This week, I interview my friend and ex business partner Stephen Walsh.
Stephen is CEO of Anders Pink, and a co-founder of Kineo and Buzz Sumo. He's also a highly talented and published author.
Stephen had 3 children in the decade he grew Kineo to be a multi-million business with over 200 staff and knows more than anyone what a tightrope it is to build a business while being a dad to three young children.
In this episode we discuss:
The pressure of dividing your attention, particularly when you have really young kids
The role of primal fear in driving you on
Making unspoken deals to manage the tension between work and home
The addictive cycle of busy-ness
Getting real with clients about family life
'Falling behind' with family life
How our kids ground us as 'mini-mindfulness' experts
Role modelling flexibility for our kids
Getting new perspectives on impatience
Whether he wants his kids to follow in his footsteps
