Raising Entrepreneurial Daughters and Being a Magic Mom with Alyce, Seth and Karissa Dailey

Subscribe and Listen Now

Gentlemen, we’re changing things up a bit on the podcast today and having a little bit of, shall we say… family fun.

Today’s guests are Alyce Dailey, her husband and fellow FRD brother Seth Dailey and their daughter Karissa. We probably could have had all four of their girls for this chat if they weren’t in school… or in Nepal with my son Tiger bungee jumping off a 500-foot bridge! It’s still crazy to think about it.

In fact, when Tatyana and I realized that their daughter, Laura, was also going on this youth trip to Nepal, we both breathed a sigh of relief because that’s how awesome these kids are. But that’s a story for another time.

Today, we’re talking about entrepreneurs who are raising entrepreneurial daughters. As I mentioned, Alyce and Seth Dailey have four wonderful girls, and I’m thrilled that Karissa could join us for this chat to share her perspective on what it’s been like growing up in the Dailey household with highly motivated and successful parents.

We also talked about Alyce’s new book called, The Magic Mom: 5 Principles to Unlock Your Natural Gifts to Raise Entrepreneurial Daughters. While it might seem like it’s geared toward Moms, there really is something in it for everyone, especially entrepreneurs.

And while there have been successes, like most families, there have been challenges too. You’ll hear Karissa talk about what it was like when things weren’t going very well and how her parents were transparent with their kids about it.

Alyce opens up to talk about feeling burnt out from building a business, not being happy to go home at the end of the day, and how self-care was the spark that helped her break out of that period and ultimately led her to write the book.

We’ll also talk about how they taught their kids to interact with adults, which set the stage for their entrepreneurial mindset. Enjoy!
