When you’re a new parent, there a lot of financial hurdles to jump over.

What are we going to do for childcare? How does this affect our income? Can we afford this new life of ours?

Today we speak with a new parent who’s recently had to answer a lot of these questions. Sarah Li-Cain is our guest today. She is a young mother, a wife and a full-time writer. By pursuing her passion and growing her income, Sarah has been able to make over $100,000 per year working 25 hours per week and still be able to spend quality time her with 3-year old son.

What are we covering?

Sarah Li Cain and I discuss:

  • How she transitioned from full-time teacher to part-time writer and doubled her salary
  • How she was able to save up two years of savings to make the transition
  • Why becoming a writer is so important to her and her ability to raise her son

This episode demonstrates the importance of both parenthood and finding your entrepreneurial path through creativity. After all, we're better parents when we're happy parents.

I would love for our community to surprise 10 hard-working people in the service industry with $100. That would be $1,000 of joy spread to those who are working hard during the holidays. So, what do you think? Are you in?
