Baby: Welcome to my Mommy’s podcast.

Good day and welcome to the Wellness Mama podcast. I’m Katie from And this episode is a few matter that’s close to and expensive to my coronary heart, which is balancing parenting and entrepreneurship and instructing our children monetary abilities. And I’ve talked about this a bit bit prior to now, however on this episode, I’m so excited to get to go deep on this with my buddy Gordy, who’s the creator of the e-book, The New Millionaire’s Playbook, in addition to the founding father of the Aware Thought Revolution, which is And he’s now a sought-after advisor, speaker, mentor, and coach to entrepreneurs and traders, in addition to a dad of three. And I like that on this episode, we obtained to speak about integrating no matter we do for profession and enterprise with household life, relatively than compartmentalizing these, how one can put together our children for monetary success, how one can put together ourselves for that, and the internal shifts that we will make that make a profound distinction in each of those areas. We additionally discuss tech use and display time with youngsters, how one can assist them develop a wholesome mindset for all of this stuff from a younger age, and a lot extra. So, let’s be part of Gordy and soar into the dialog. Gordy, welcome again. I’m so excited we get to have one other dialog.

Gordy: Me too. Thanks for having me once more.

Katie: Effectively, I’ll hyperlink to our different episode for you guys who haven’t heard it but, which will get to go deep on a whole lot of subjects associated to what you name the brand new millionaire. And I like that episode. On this one, I’d love to speak a bit bit extra as a result of most people listening are dad and mom. I do know that you’re as properly. You have got three youngsters. I’d love to speak about balancing entrepreneurship, no matter we’re doing within the monetary realm with parenting. And in addition, how will we assist our youngsters construct a strong basis of monetary abilities in life? And like I mentioned, I do know that you’ve got direct expertise with this as a busy dad your self, however what recommendation do it’s a must to different entrepreneurs who’re in that progress part, striving to construct a enterprise, and likewise attempting to maintain household as a giant precedence of their lives?

Gordy: Yeah, I believe for me, the largest shift was integration and actually integrating my mission the place it’s not separate. Like I’ve seen a whole lot of entrepreneurs who’re dad and mom, and so they sort of compartmentalize, and it’s like, okay, I’m sporting my enterprise hat now, and now I’m sporting my household hat. And that’s actually arduous for me. And so, what I do is to me, my mission is my mission. So, whether or not it’s enterprise or household, all of it comes collectively. And so, a part of what that appears like is, you recognize, once I’m happening talking excursions or going to facilitate workshops or going to investor conferences, like I’m having one in all my, no less than one in all my youngsters with me and so they’re a part of it, and we’re strategizing, and we’re speaking about it. In order that they’re half, like, they’re a part of the method, and it simply makes it a lot extra enjoyable as a result of frankly, and I discuss this rather a lot, is like the college system, you recognize this, the college system is just not actually equipping our children in the easiest way potential. I imply, it’s set as much as create manufacturing facility staff and rats for a rat race. And I believe like, you recognize, if we simply totally depend on the college system to assist our children turn out to be thriving souls on this world, then I really feel like we’re doing a disservice. So for me, like, you recognize, my mission is to speed up the evolution of human consciousness. And so, whether or not I’m doing that by my investments, by my companies, by my household, by my youngsters, prefer it’s all the identical factor. And in order that’s one of many issues that I’m all the time, you recognize, filtering for is like, does this match within my mission? So, I’d say that’s like the largest factor for me is the mixing and never compartmentalizing it.

And in addition, together with your loved ones, together with your youngsters or your associate, in business-related conversations to the diploma that they’re . And it is a little edgy to say, however I’d say that if it’s a must to have your small business and your loved ones so separated, I’d ask you to query if your small business is actually nourishing you, and if your small business is really an expression of your soul, and is it actually a mission? As a result of if it’s not, then it’s arduous, and it’s arduous. And, like, if your loved ones doesn’t care or taken with what you’re constructing and creating, I’d say that’s a possibility so that you can mirror and see, you recognize, how do you wish to, you recognize, have your soul essence expressed by your small business.

Katie: I like that shift. I additionally deliver no less than one in all my youngsters with me to many occasions and even to board conferences. And I’ve completed that for a very long time. And it’s, I by no means stop to be amazed by how extremely succesful youngsters are of understanding a lot from such a younger age and the way that turns into a part of their understanding and vocabulary a lot sooner than it was for me. And it’s actually enjoyable to see them now at older ages beginning their very own companies and getting into that world and the way they’re so a lot better outfitted than I used to be as an grownup even a lot much less at their ages. And I do suppose for teenagers, too, it’s a bonus. And I inform my youngsters this on a regular basis, It’s a bonus to know that earlier and to enter that world even when you’re nonetheless a child as a result of it’s much less widespread. So, you truly have already got kind of a leg up as a result of it’s much less anticipated. And particularly if they’ve a few of these foundational abilities that they be taught from us modeling them, it’s actually fascinating to observe.

And such as you, I spotted when my oldest was getting into kindergarten age that not one of the present faculty choices adequately put together youngsters for what a really unsure grownup future might appear to be as a result of my job didn’t exist once I was getting into faculty. And so, once I labored backwards of how will we adequately put together them for no matter their future is likely to be, I ended up with a way more first rules abilities up versus data down method, which fortunately, the web makes rather a lot simpler than it might have been 20 years in the past. And so, I like that you’ve got that focus along with your youngsters as properly.

And I additionally love that you simply talked concerning the mission-driven part of enterprise as a result of I believe this is likely to be the lacking hyperlink for lots of people who don’t really feel fulfilled by the work that they’re doing. And sometimes, it looks as if small shifts in our thought course of or in how we’re integrating with a enterprise or perhaps a job could make an incredible distinction, even when we don’t shift our total profession or shift into a wholly completely different path. Typically doing kind of like we talked about in our first episode, that internal audit of our ideas and our mission and our motivation may help us to seek out a lot extra gratitude and achievement within the work we’re doing, even when it doesn’t drastically change. However have you ever seen that with all of the folks you’ve labored with as properly?

Gordy: Yeah, it’s yeah, I imply, this has been so large for for the work like so, you recognize, a part of my skilled life is I run a enterprise capital fund, and I spend money on firms which are which are mission-driven. And it’s been alarming to see even the leaders of mission-driven firms are are doing the work on themselves. They’re not, they’re not truly, you recognize, excavating their very own internal shadow and demons to essentially mirror their, their course of, their deeper course of. And so, what I what I’ve seen is that their enterprise turns into a byproduct of their very own consciousness. And so, a part of my work with them is to assist them join deeper to their soul, after which, you recognize, do among the deeper consciousness work in order that the issues they’re attempting to resolve of their enterprise, if you happen to’re attempting to resolve the issues with the identical consciousness they use to create them, how do you count on a unique consequence? It’s like that well-known Einstein quote, we will’t remedy the issues with the identical considering we use to create them.

And so, you recognize, this, it was humorous, I used to be working with one entrepreneur, tremendous, like pushed, extremely pushed, A sort like extremely profitable, however he was having huge issues. And, and, you recognize, whenever you, you recognize, each stage of progress in an organization, you face new challenges. And he was at some extent the place he was going through challenges, each within the enterprise and in his private life along with his household. And so, as we’re sitting there, and I might see like his face, like his brow was crunching up, and he’s like, actually, like his, his physiology was like in a really constricted state, as a result of he’s attempting to resolve this drawback. And I simply paused for a second. And I mentioned, what does your soul need? And it was like his mind exploded. And I mentioned, and he’s like me, I’m like, when was the final time you related along with your soul? And I mentioned, do it’s a must to e-book an appointment along with your soul by Calendly? Or does your EA need to e-book an appointment along with your soul? And he’s simply, he began laughing, and he had in his destiny, and his complete physiology shifted as a result of he realized there’s this complete deeper facet of himself that he’s not tapping into, and whenever you’re not related to your soul, your, your instinct isn’t totally on-line. So, you’re simply attempting to make use of your cognitive talents to resolve issues, however your cognition solely has a lot bandwidth. And if it’s all the time being bombarded by the destructive ideas and the shortage ideas anyway, you’re, you’re preventing an uphill battle. So for this reason, like, I’ve realized, you recognize, every thing is usually a non secular course of, particularly enterprise. And if you happen to deal with it like that, then your small business turns into far more than a enterprise. It turns into a mission. It turns into one thing a lot better than your self and then you definately take pleasure in it. After which it’s like a sport, and then you definately’re additionally enhancing and elevating your self. And by doing so your small business grows and shifts and modifications. And that is how, once more, like household turns into part of it as a result of it’s all interwoven into the tapestry of your existence.

Katie: And I do know that as a dad, you’re additionally very centered on serving to your youngsters on this journey and serving to them have a robust framework from a younger age. So, I’d love to listen to any ways in which you’re kind of doing this deeper work along with your youngsters or making it a foundational a part of how they operate on the planet from the very starting. As a result of I additionally really feel like our children are a few of our best lecturers. And after we mannequin for them, we frequently be taught the teachings in a a lot deeper approach ourselves. So how do you combine this into your loved ones tradition? What sort of conversations do you might have along with your youngsters round this sort of stuff?

Gordy: Yeah, so there’s just a few issues. One factor I’ll share that’s been actually precious for us is we felt a whole lot of stress with screens and expertise with our children, and we had been noticing that they had been beginning to actually turn out to be overly consumed by their laptops or the tablets. And so, what we did, a pair issues we realized. One on simply on a well being stage was we realized that if we truly offset their as an alternative as a result of as an alternative of taking the screens away from them, which I believe is just not the best reply, however we there’s a pair issues we did, one is we offset their display time with nature as a result of nature has a pure approach of recalibrating the nervous system, particularly with the destructive ion power from like being within the ocean or seashore or forest. So simply serving to them even perceive that as a result of, as a result of they love gaming too. And there’s this one sport. It’s a it’s I believe it’s a Mario sport. And in it, one of many characters, he goes, “Unfavorable ions go,” is what the character says. And so they and so, for me, it was that excellent alternative to elucidate what are destructive ions. How do they assist your physique? Let’s go get destructive ions.

After which so, after we’re doing that, that opens up the area for dialogue and exploration. After which what I’m in a position to do is, I’ll present them what I’m engaged on in enterprise, and I’ll get their suggestions. What do you suppose? How do you suppose this could? And it’s loopy how good their concepts are. It’s like, it’s a approach higher than a few of my very own crew would have. So, I believe after which honoring them, honoring them for his or her concepts and respecting, respecting them and giving them that confidence for themselves.

And what was so cool for me was, oh, after which yeah, what was actually cool is, you recognize, I only a couple weeks in the past, I used to be doing a keynote in Toronto with our mutual buddy Jim Kwik. And, and my, my 11-year-old son Jackson was on that journey with me, and he was within the viewers and, and properly, one was actually cool. He noticed me do a keynote and he mentioned, and he actually liked it. He mentioned, Daddy, your speak was the most effective, which is actually cool to listen to. However then I might see that he was actually admiring Jim as a result of, you recognize, Jim has, you recognize, he’s labored with the Elon Musk. He’s labored with all of the Marvel characters. So, and, and, you recognize, they’re large into comics, after which it was cool as a result of he after he was like, he was sort of like, you recognize, nervous to wish to join with Jim, and he’s like, I wish to ask him one thing. And I used to be like, okay, properly, come on, let’s go ask him. He’s like, I don’t know if I wish to, and I used to be like, Jim, Jackson desires to ask you one thing. After which, clearly, Jim’s such a candy man. He’s like, what can I enable you with? And Jackson asks him, he’s like as a result of you recognize, Jim is the mind man.

And so, and Jackson has his mind, like, you recognize, he’s, he’s cognitively good. However typically, that’s additionally his, his kryptonite. And he mentioned, Jim, how can what’s one factor I can do to assist my assist use my mind higher? And Jim goes, a number of instances a day, simply ask your self, is that this good for my mind? Or is that this unhealthy for my mind? And, and it was so cool to see Jackson get that data as a result of now, ever since then, he’s making use of it, and he’s utilizing it. And he’s even in his personal, like, ideations of whether or not he’s doing a faculty venture, or whether or not he’s taking part in a sport, or whether or not he’s doing analysis, I can see he’s caught that filter. And never solely does he have that filter for himself, however now he has that filter for others. And he, so now a part of, and he advised me, he’s like, Daddy, I believe I wish to be an entrepreneur, I wish to remedy issues. And so, as a result of he. due to this publicity that he’s gotten. And so these are among the ways in which you recognize, we’re holding area and having these conversations, and likewise not being connected. I believe that’s one of many issues typically we as dad and mom do is we’ve got these attachments that we would like our children to be these grand, wonderful, epic people that, you recognize, should meet our expectations. And I believe that’s, that’s, that’s loopy, too. It’s similar to, you recognize, honor them for who they’re, the distinctive stardust beings that they’re, and, you recognize, unconditionally love them. And whenever you’re not unconditionally loving them, what’s it that you simply’re projecting onto them? What’s the facet of your self that you simply haven’t but discovered to like? As a result of you recognize, that’s a possibility to see how they’re instructing us that we’re nonetheless, we nonetheless must do our work.

In order that’s sort of the, you recognize, the connection and we’re all the time, you recognize, asking them like what how questions like we talked about in our earlier podcast as properly. You realize, we, we’d be as aware as potential to not ask, like, why did you do this? As a result of whenever you as quickly as you body a query, like, why did you do this, you’re already making them mistaken. You’re already making them defensive, and so they they their programming begins working as like, properly, one thing should be mistaken for me to now I’ve to consider. However whereas, whereas if you happen to ask them one thing like, oh, you recognize, how did that really feel? Or what are three issues that labored about that? Or what’s one thing that you simply wish to have occur? Now hastily, it’s extra of an inquiry, curiosity-based dialog versus, like, you recognize, an emotionally triggered one.

Katie: I believe that’s an unimaginable tip that you simply simply gave and the way you talked about gratitude as properly. That’s a follow we’ve adopted as a household is at dinner, we’ll typically go round and title three issues we’re grateful for simply to sort of give them that lens of wanting by life all through the day of, like, what am I grateful for? As a result of, as you mentioned, that’s the power of getting already acquired. And so, after we exist in a state of gratitude, initially, we find yourself being rather a lot happier typically, however I like serving to them preserve that as their focus all through the day. And I additionally love what you mentioned about attachments and the issues that we venture onto them as a result of I really feel like I had unimaginable dad and mom. And I additionally felt a whole lot of strain, particularly in academic-related issues rising up. And so, I used to be attempting to be very conscious of that with my youngsters. And I believe so many parenting struggles could possibly be solved by merely remembering always that they’re every their very own infinite autonomous beings. And that’s one in all my first rules of parenting is they aren’t mine, they don’t belong to me, they aren’t reflections of me, they aren’t mini-versions of me, they’re every their very own infinite autonomous people. And I’m not right here to assist decide who they’re. I’m right here to assist them uncover who they’re. And so, I like that you simply introduced that up.

Gordy: I do know from writing, I’m scripting this down, infinite autonomous people. I like that.

Katie: And I believe if we simply even preserve that prime of thoughts in how we work together with them, it’s not us because the authority telling them what to do as somebody who doesn’t have authority. They’re already autonomous. And that doesn’t imply we don’t information them. However I like your method in ask good questions, assist them be taught to ask good questions. And I believe if we construct that connection in a robust approach, it removes the necessity for lots of the ability battle and the issues that a whole lot of dad and mom run into. So, I like that you’ve got this ethos woven all through your small business, woven all through your loved ones tradition, that these issues are intertwined. They’re for me as properly. And I believe the extra folks which are ready to do this, such as you mentioned, we’re shifting on this very stunning acutely aware route as a society as a complete. And I imagine strongly that it begins with every of us and with our households. So, I like that you simply’re bringing that message.

Are there every other key takeaways associated to the e-book that I do know we talked about extra within the first episode or to household tradition and parenting that you’d love to depart folks with on this episode?

Gordy: Sure, however I’ve a query for you first on the gratitude. So, we’ve carried out the gratitude as properly. So, day-after-day they write three issues that they’re grateful for. But when that is what I haven’t found out how one can assist, however the issues that they write are be like pizza, video video games, bushes. And so, I’m pleased that they’re entering into the follow of gratitude, however I’m noticing that it’s nearly like they’re… and perhaps it’s simply me judging what they’re being grateful for, so it’s my work once more. However I’m curious, like, yeah, is there one thing that you simply’ve seen or that you simply do to assist them actually get deeper into the gratitude versus like issues? You realize what I imply?

Katie: Yeah, typically I’ll body that in three, typically it’ll be three folks you’re particularly grateful for as we speak. However typically, it’ll simply be three stuff you’re grateful for with three deep the explanation why and including that phrase deep. And it’s enjoyable as a result of youngsters join the dots in such wonderful ways in which I’d not essentially suppose to. So, they could nonetheless say they’re grateful for pizza, however then it may need a deeper purpose of as a result of we all the time eat pizza collectively as a household, and I really feel related or I believe it helps them like join, like the place’s the sensation beneath simply the gratitude? Like what else does this connect with inside my soul or inside my life? And I believe youngsters are such wonderful pure sample recognizers and that they join dots in distinctive methods. And I believe that’s simply a straightforward tip to assist them search for patterns somewhere else.

Gordy: That’s good. Okay, I’m gonna add that to, to report again. Yeah, so I suppose the opposite factor that I’d say is what’s been, what’s actually labored properly for me is tapping into my very own internal little one with them and taking part in and never taking shit so severely, and actually letting my very own playful, joyful model come out. As a result of, as you recognize, we in some way after we turn out to be adults, we simply begin taking issues too severely. And so, the extra we will let go of the seriousness and, and fall again into play, it’s, it simply creates such a greater connection. And I seen that anytime that, you recognize, I’m discovering there to be stress, it’s simply it’s as a result of I’m being too severe. I’m taking it approach too severe. And so, if I simply remind myself to be like, properly, what if I used to be 10 proper now or 12 or 13? What, how would I be? And it’s like, it instantly shifts it.

So, I’d say use the chance to essentially faucet into your individual internal little one and have enjoyable. Like, take pleasure in these moments, take pleasure in life, like play this complete factor is only a sport anyway. So, play it to the most effective of your skill to have enjoyable, have which means, have objective, and generate abundance by laughter and curiosity. That’s yeah, that’s a giant reminder I inform myself day-after-day, like play and have enjoyable.

Katie: I adore it. I believe that’s an ideal place to wrap up for as we speak, however hopefully, we will do extra episodes sooner or later. However I’m extraordinarily grateful for you and for all that you simply’ve shared as we speak. Thanks a lot for being right here, Gordy.

Gordy: Sure, my pleasure. Thanks.

Katie: And thanks as all the time to all of you for listening and sharing your Most worthy sources, your time, your power, and your consideration with us each as we speak. We’re so grateful that you simply did. And I hope that you’ll be part of me once more on the subsequent episode of the Wellness Mama podcast.
