Friends, the Gaargoyles (the affectionate name we’ve given our family) are back in the studio from our 31-day road trip, and it feels so good to be back! I also convinced Ira to hang out with me in the studio today because you all had so many great questions on Instagram about how we were able to go on a month-long trip as business owners.
Ever since my girls were very young, I’ve dreamed of building a business that would allow our family the freedom to spend time with each other. And while this wasn’t quite how it turned out during the first decade of our businesses, we’ve gotten to a point where they’re self-sustaining. So I’m very excited to share what the planning process looked like and how we built our businesses to run on their own because I know it’ll help a lot of you entrepreneurs evaluate the direction your business is headed!
