Today’s episode is a continuation of what we talked about last week. Over the last 6 years, I’ve focused all of my energy and attention on the issues and struggles working parents face in modern society, especially ambitious professionals who are in those early stages of parenthood. I’ve discovered a lot of unique stressors for this group of people, and our culture is just making things harder for these parents who are drowning and losing out on the most important years of their kids’ lives. This is a devastating situation. I am tired of seeing good people struggle through these important years of their lives. I’m tired of a whole generation of kids growing up thinking this is what life just is. It’s not right, and I believe there’s a way to avoid it.

So last week I announced our new approach to working parenthood, which I call the Whole SELF Lifestyle™. If you haven’t heard episode 65, go back and listen, because I talked all about what the philosophy is all about and it’ll be helpful if you have that background. We’re going to build on that conversation today.
