SHOW NOTES

Our conversation is split into three parts – in our third and final episode, we talk about what he's learned along the way as a parent and freelancer, the types of professional development he's pursued over the past year and what he hopes the future may hold for his kids.

Steve Folland is a parent, video and audio creator and the founder of Being Freelance. The next episode covers what he wishes someone would have told him before becoming a freelancer and parent and what he hopes the future holds for his kids.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT: 

  • What he wishes someone would have told him before becoming a parent
  • Scheduling time off for yourself, as you would as an employee
  • Treating yourself like a business when you're a freelancer
  • The kind of professional development he's pursued during the pandemic
  • Making time to do non-business related things
  • Learning new skills and trying out different workflows 
  • What he hopes the future may hold for his kids
  • Hobbies we want to keep doing after the pandemic

Thanks to Steve for speaking with us about parenthood and adapting his business during the pandemic!

ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
I believe parenthood and professional development doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.

As a social impact movement and community, I'm focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.

Mini episodes are released on Tuesday and Friday covering all things entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.

Thanks for listening and sharing with your network of parents!
