#63: Juggling a Company and a Family with Julien Salinas
Welcome back to another episode to We Live to Build podcast.Today I spoke with Julien Salinas, the founder and CEO of NLP Cloud, about what it’s like being an entrepreneur while being a parent.I loved this topic because both identities are important, but how does one reconcile in their mind having both hats at the same time?Does being a parent make you a better entrepreneur?Does being an entrepreneur make you a better parent?-Did having a kid make you more ambitious?-Does your growing business give you more or less time with your kids?-Do you plan your day around your kids or your company?-When is the best time to start a business (when having kids?)-Do your kids understand what you are doing?-How do you handle your kids when you are working and they are at home?-What is the best thing about having kids while working?-What is the worst thing about having kids while working?-Is having 2 kids harder than having 1 in terms of being an entrepreneur?I really appreciate how honest Julien was about his situation, and I could feel from our conversation how much he loves his family and his business, and that they absolutely affected the other.I took away from this episode that while it’s hard to be both, it’s not impossible, and it might just make you a better human being, but I’ll leave that up to you to decide.And now, I give you Julien Salinas.
#62: Why You Should Be An Entrepreneur with Alex Armitage
Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.I know that our audience consists of 2 main groups of people:The first group are company owners, and the second group are people who haven’t started a company yet but are thinking about it.While we normally focus on the first group, I felt it was important to encourage the second group, so this episode is about why you should be an entrepreneur.I had a great chat with Alex Armitage, a serial entrepreneur who’s currently focused on Nectarine Credit, which helps companies automate credit applications when dealing with manufacturing partners.Alex is a non-traditional guy who’s lived and traveled abroad while working for other companies, and decided to finally leave the corporate world to start his own business after the financial crisis.He graciously shares his story, and through it, I hope you’ll gain insight into how entrepreneurs think about their careers and their life, so that by the end of the episode, you’ll have a great sense for why you too should become an entrepreneur.And now, I bring you Alex Armitage.
