Parenting & Leadership – You are the CEO
Do you view parenting as leadership? For some reason, sometimes we downplay our roles as parents. We often say things like “I’m just a mom/dad”, and at times don’t approach it with the same zest and zeal we would in our career or another leadership role.
Why is that?
TPJ 83: Parenting & Leadership Podcast Episode
Today I want to encourage you to invest in yourself and discuss how I think our role as a parent is like being a CEO.
Alchemize is my new course that helps you take your thoughts, fears, frustrations, and anxieties and transform them into mindsets that can actually move you forward in life, solve problems, become the person you want to be, and create the life that you want to create.
