Single Parenting Entrepreneurs: The Challenges and Joys of Building a Business While Raising Kids

As the product of a single-parent home, I cannot believe we’ve never touched on this topic in almost four years of the podcast! Since I am child-free by choice, I invited my new friend Heidi Schalk on the show to chat all about it – and chat we did! We covered this topic and many others in this week’s episode.

Heidi believes children should actively participate in their parents’ goals and aspirations. She sees this as an opportunity to teach them about goal-setting, teamwork, and responsibility. By including them in the family’s journey towards success, children learn valuable skills and how to contribute positively to society.

Today’s guest is Heidi Schalk, a single parent and entrepreneur who has navigated the challenges of running a business while raising her children. She transitioned from being a stay-at-home mom to building a successful business, overcoming her fears and mindset obstacles. With a background in health and wellness, including personal training and bodybuilding, Heidi’s journey into entrepreneurship was driven by a desire to create a sustainable income while being present for her family. Her experience in balancing work and family life offers valuable insights and practical advice for single parents seeking personal and professional growth. As a business coach, Heidi brings a unique perspective to the conversation, sharing her wisdom and experiences to inspire others on their own journeys.

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Embracing the challenges of single parenthood with resilience.
  • Conquering mindset obstacles to thrive as an entrepreneur.
  • Engaging children in goal-setting and entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Building a strong support system for single-parent success.
  • Mastering intentional time management and goal-setting.

Go grab your coffee or your tea, and let’s talk it out.
