One of the biggest challenges that I face daily is maintaining discipline. It can be a heavy burden to manage several brands that include events, podcasts, and web series. There are those mornings where I snooze the alarm for at least two 15min extensions on my sleep [lol!], and weekends when I think to myself, “why can’t I have normal weekends where I watch sports and nap on my couch?” My weekends are spent shooting and editing video footage and planning social media post for the upcoming week.
I gained an 8yr old son through marriage and had a son that same year. Jumping straight into parenthood was challenging and a beautiful thing all at the same time. I loved the idea of having these little people that I could pass knowledge down to. Over a decade later, I’m still teaching all the while praying that they get at least some of what I’m trying to give. One of the greatest jobs of parents is to leave your children with no excuses.
