Does Your Career Influence Your Children

If you’re an entrepreneur or in any other busy career, you may worry from time to time about building and maintaining a good relationship with your kids.

On this episode, we’re discussing a listener question on this topic. This listener admitted he was afraid his kids wouldn’t push themselves after seeing how hard he and his wife work as high-energy business leaders.

This was something my wife and I discussed a lot over the years. Because of my career, I missed some things I wish I hadn’t. My son was moving all the time and often exposed to new environments and people.

Rather than just hoping it would work out that I would get time with my son, I had to schedule it. It had to become a priority in my life.

Family time won’t just appear—we have to make time for it.

However, no matter how much time we get with our families, the quantity doesn’t matter as much as the quality.

Show your kids how much you love them. Spend time with them when you are home. Be there for their important events and always keep in touch.

When you think about this and plan for it, you’ll make the right adjustments to your life. Your kids will feel like they’re safe, cared for, and loved.

You may also consider taking your kids on some of your business trips with you. That way, you create special memories and get that alone time with them.

Tune in to hear more ideas for making your kids feel that they matter and giving them the emotional support they need, no matter how busy your schedule.
