I am so excited for this episode as I have Sarah Boyd with me! Sarah is a mother of 2, a cancer survivor and the founder of ‘Resilient Little Hearts’ Children’s Publishing House. With her background in psychology and neuroscience, she is passionate about equipping children to build the character, resilience and courage needed to thrive in today’s ever changing world. She is an Aussie that now lives in California with her family. Today we are diving into raising kids in an entrepreneurial family!

“You gave your best shot at living out your biggest potential…” At minute 2:26 Sarah tells us what her background is including psychology and neuroscience along with her consulting digital products and teaching positive psychology principles and how her children’s book came about. Sarah shares why its so powerful for us to be reading with our children.

“You have the potential to create your own future…” At 6:40 we talk about the benefits our kids will have by being raised by entrepreneurs and growing up in an entrepreneurial family. The biggest benefit is the exposure to possibilities, to limitless potential and to their options. Sarah talks about how we can make the most of that.

“People say you’re so fearless…” At minute 10:38 Exposing our kids to certain opportunities , what she exposes them to to make sure they see or hear certain things including courage and how she teaches that to her children.

“We can get really caught up in feeling guilty…” At 14:00 We talk about people who see their children as entrepreneurs in the future and what we can be doing even if we send them to traditional schools but want them to have an entrepreneur mindset. I share my experience, insights and hopes for my children. We discuss how to show that failure is a part of this as well.

“It’s because you’re scared and you did it anyway…” At minute 21:25 we talk about special rituals, habits and things that Sarah does with her kids each day. I also share what I do with my kids every night to teach them about gratitude. I ask Sarah how to teach our kids courage and her suggestions for how to give our kids more courage.

“Not being afraid, not having that fear…” At 28:43 Sarah tells us about her new book and where you can find it! If you want a copy of Sarah’s new book, ‘The Boy Who Stood Up Tall’ you can grab a copy here,
