051 | Building and selling businesses while adapting routines around young kids with Alexis Grant | PT 1
Show Notes

PT 1: Alexis Grant is a serial entrepreneur and parent of two kids. She’s currently building They Got Acquired, a content company with a mission to redefine startup success by sharing stories of acquisitions between $100k-$50M. She has bootstrapped two of her previous companies, selling her content agency to The Penny Hoarder and her brand for writers, The Write Life.

This is the first of three mini episodes of our conversation, which took place before the summer break. In this interview, we talk about her current workflow and how she's shared flexible childcare to adapt alongside her growing business.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:

  • Her current work schedule and regular exercise routine
  • Taking calls while hiking in nature
  • Renegotiating her work routine around school schedules
  • Getting creative with childcare when kids are at home full-time
  • What kind of economic opportunities flexible and accessible daycare could provide 
  • Negotiating an acquihire business sale while pregnant
  • Working in a leadership role with two kids under age two

Thanks to Lexi for taking part of her day to speak with me about her parenthood journey and designing a flexible workflow!

Season 4 has been sponsored by the Startup Community Empowerment Fund, presented by Startup Canada, Mastercard, UPS and BDC.
