A lot of people dream of becoming an entrepreneur. If you want to start and run a thriving business, putting your family first is essential. So how do you find that balance?
Serial entrepreneur Steve Chou says most entrepreneurial advice comes from single men or women without outside responsibilities. He discovered entrepreneurs running multimillion-dollar companies who have families, don’t spend quality time with them. It’s also not uncommon for these entrepreneurs to be stressed out or burned out. That's when Steve decided to write a book to share how people can start a business that allows them to quit their jobs and achieve financial freedom without sacrificing family and what matters most.
