Also, why being an entrepreneur can the best thing you ever do for your family. In this show, I’ll cover business techniques great for parents, such as starting an Amazon business, dropshipping, and affiliate marketing to help parents make money from home.

Short and Sweet
While these episodes aren't as long as some other podcasts, Joel delivers IMMENSE value in each episode. I've only gotten to listen to the first 3 episodes so far, but each one has hit home in a way that I didn't expect. I can't wait to grace my ears as Joel (hopefully) puts out more content.
It's so great to hear reminders of what I believe is important in my life. Sometimes things get so hectic it is easy to forget why I am doing the million things I do every day. Joel's podcast is a quick refreshing look at where my kids belong in my busy schedule.
I really liked the episode about sharing my dreams with my kids and then sharing the successes and actually involving them in celebration.These simple things can greatly improve our Quality Of Life.
I can't wait for more !
Joel Bower is an amazing person!
Joel shows how it's possible (and actually easy) to balance family and business! This podcast has inspired me to make goals and to share dreams with my children. It's an absolutely brilliant idea to celebrate our business accomplishments with our children. I will definitely put more effort in to listening to their goals as well. Love these and I can't wait for more to come out!!!
