Revolution, COVID-19 & Entrepreneurship
(Part 1 of 2) In this episode we dive right into the current situation in the US following the tragic lynching (yes lynching) of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. A revolution was sparked and the systemic racism in place since the country’s inception has begun to unravel. Since it’s been some time since our last episode, we also touched on the COVID-19 crisis and how it’s affected our family life.

Preparing Our Oldest Daughter for Racism
In this episode we discuss a recent experience our oldest daughter had at school where a child made what would clearly be considered a racist remark in an adult setting, and how we chose to deal with it so that she never feels inferior.
