Show Notes

PT 2: 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.

In the second mini episode, we talk about asynchronous remote work, sharing her business building experiences online and how caregiving responsibilities can impact your creative workflow. 

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:

  • Building an asynchronous remote work environment as a parent 
  • Working with freelancers and contractors
  • Sharing her business learnings with others via her newsletter and social media
  • What she wishes she knew as a new parent and a new business owner
  • The cycles of cold seasons impacting your work
  • Not having the time or space to action your creative ideas
  • Balancing caregiving responsibilities with work

Thanks again to Lexi for speaking with me about the realities of working with freelancers, adapting work routines and parenting duties.

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