The older your children get, the fewer things you can really successfully outsource. You can always outsource the laundry, or driving to-and-from, but the things that require your unique value system and your opinion on how to raise your child become, to me, more and more prevalent the older the child gets.

I’m so happy to announce the sixth and final episode of season one with independent consultant, Gretchen*.

We talked about her journey from engineering to sales, how older kids require more attention that can’t be outsourced, and about focusing on the trade-offs that you’re happy to make.
