The Haunting Lesson I Learned From Becoming a Dad.

Jun 10, 2024

The past four years have changed me for good.

I've been a Dad for almost four years now.

We have two girls:

Lilly is one, and Everley is almost 4.

These two little rats make me belly laugh multiple times a day.

They fill my heart with love.

The work it takes to raise them is also insane. I'm fatigued like never before.

My nightly relaxing routine (after getting them to bed at 8:30pm) is:

↪ head to the kitchen

↪ toss on my pink rubber gloves,

↪ do dishes and clean for another 45 minutes

It's the best (and hardest earned) love there is.

If you know you know.

Lately, I've been beating myself up for not getting things more established (in my business) before I became a Dad.

↪ I wish I had discovered my offer earlier.

↪ I wish I would have built more systems

↪ I wish I would have started building my audience sooner

What I really wish?

I wish I had more time and energy to devote to my girls.

But, I missed the boat on that. So now I'm in the thick of fatherhood and business building at the same time.

I'm going to laugh about this one day. But now, it's hard.

Here's the unforgettable business lesson this has taught me:

Businesses exists to serve our lives (not the other way around).

A business should be a machine. A series of systems that produces one thing above all others:

A great lifestyle for you. One where you get to do what matters.

It's too easy to get trapped in the hustle...

To buy into the dream...

To forget to architect the thing backwards (starting from the lifestyle you want).

This is a lesson I will take with me from here on.

I'm building for lifestyle.

I'm curious — have you felt the same way?
