A few weeks ago Joel Louis of StartUpDad HQ connected with me and asked to do a video interview for his podcast.
I said yes, and the result is 45-minutes of authentic, fatherhood, entrepreneur goodness. Grab a glass of wine, crank up your cardio machine, or just kick back and enjoy.
Since starting this blog last August, I’ve met lots of parent entrepreneurs living the ‘trepLife. These folks inspire me and I’m going to start regularly featuring them and their products.
I recently met Sean Singleton on Twitter and we hit it off right away. Sean is a passionate dad, and a front-end web designer, so I was curious because I’m always thinking about how to improve my website. This is fast becoming a popular profession in our modern, digital age as businesses, brands, and individuals are constantly on the lookout for the latest stand-out talent in the web design world to take charge of things like UX – those looking to pursue this career option for themselves may want to read this post to find out effective ways of making and promoting their portfolio in order to attract more business. But what really intrigued me about Sean was his side-hustle business, an inspired t-shirt line called The PopLyfe, and his reason for starting it.
I’m thrilled to share this interview with you. Brian Davis is a friend, inventor, and an entrepreneur; he makes products that solve problems for cycling enthusiasts.
And he’s a ‘trepLife Dad with a wife and two young kids.
Brian is the only person I know to crush a Kickstarter campaign not once, but TWICE. He talks about how to rock your Kickstarter in the interview. As well as how he made the transition from a full-time job to being a full-time entrepreneur. If you’re an entrepreneur looking to get your product off the ground, or just someone with a goal in mind but in need of funds to get there, there are plenty of crowdfunding sites out there that are worth investigating, with GoFundMe being one of the more popular ones.
I am SUPER-excited to share the first video interview for ‘trepLife Dad, and I’m pumped that it is with the inimitable Mario Armstrong. Mario is an Emmy Award-winning digital lifestyle expert, a parent, and an entrepreneur. You’ll probably recognize him from The TODAY Show and a few other places.
Mario is a committed husband and dad, and I love when he said, “If I ever get to the point where the business is damaging the relationship [with my wife and son], the business has to go.” He will shut it down. Wow! Incredible commitment.
