In this episode I talk to Joel Bower, host of the Self Employed Parent Podcast, about how changes in the way we work have impacted family life. Joel’s a serial entrepreneur who doesn’t buy into the old-school model of devoting endless hours to an employer all in pursuit of free time in retirement. We talk about the upsides of being able to design your own work hours, but we also confront the romantic notions people may hold about being able to work from home. In a world where so many of us now employ ourselves—and where our kids are more likely to become entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs and makers—we’re creating new career models for generations to come. Whether you’re employing yourself or just contemplating the future for you and your kids, this episode gets us thinking about having the best of both worlds.
