Behind every young child who believed in themselves, was a parent who believed first.”

From baby steps to giant leaps of success, you - The parents - have supported your children in every way fathomable. Once it commences, you just get the epiphany that, in the end, it’s not about just you. Amazingly, this applies to parenthood as well as leadership. Be it mentally, physically, or emotionally, your children and your business always had you. You who would never give up on them, who they can always count on. It is the epitome of parenthood. It is the epitome of leadership. If you’ve given it your best - you have, even though there are days when you may not believe it or it’s not what you may have envisioned, found success.

Both parenthood and leadership, have their fair share of ups and downs. Everything is new. It’s as though you’re in a foreign country without a map - you can ask for directions and you can ask for help but at the end of the day, you have to trust yourself and find your own way. As a parent, when you have your child, you yourself are young and naive to the challenges of having a kid. You try your best to see what your parents did and do the same but the times, technology, and generation gap limits you. Then there is the uncanny familial and social pressure, voices saying “do this!” I would never” “what are you doing?” and all a billion more worthless comments which do nothing but knock you down. Things are no different in building a business. One learns, does all one can, and yet there is always some or the other thing which is, as though, just waiting to bring you down. The terrifying part of them both is that every day, every age, every minute brings a new challenge. Being a parent - from the first burp to your last breath, every moment is a new learning experience. Being a boss - from the first idea to your last day, every minute is a chance to grow. No doubt, it’s exhausting but it’s worth it. With experience, you learn and with time you grow.

The only way you can achieve contentment as a leader and a parent is when you completely trust yourself and your instincts. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, yes, but the helper’s advice isn’t concrete. Remember the difference between advice and command. See, having a business and/or having a kid invites changes into your life and yes, it’s scary and yes, you wish it was easier but let’s face it - no matter the difficulties, you can do it. You’ll mature, you’ll handle your responsibilities better and with time and the support of friends and/or family, you’ll flourish. Now, when it comes to help - in this day and age, help’ is available from almost everywhere; however, knowing what’s right for you, knowing honorable intentions - thats essential. Seek the people you trust, whether it’s friends or family or anyone, trust holds unfathomable power so seek the ones you have faith in and ask them for help. Going on the internet and looking at articles is fine but do not let yourself get sucked in the rabbit hole of ‘advice’ on the web. Read books by experienced, well-versed authors - here are a few examples of some of the finest parenting and leadership books:

Parenting Books Leadership Books
How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t With Your Kids - Carla Naumburg, Ph.D., Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter
The Whole-Brain Child - Daniel J. Siegel and Tina Payne Bryson The Hard Thing About Hard Things - Ben Horowitz

Parenting is the toughest job there is. You are responsible for this tiny human you love with all your heart and you are terrified of messing up. Being a boss is no different. You are responsible for the livelihoods of many and your business is the result of your sweat and tears. Both of these may seem quite different, but if you look close enough - they are more similar than you could’ve imagined. Just always remember that no amount of articles and advice can equate to experience. You’ll learn and you’ll succeed and before you go and overthink - Truly just know this - ultimately, all that matters is your own instincts and faith and it’ll all work out.
