Subscribe and Listen Now

All right fellas. In today’s episode, you’ll hear from not one, not two, but THREE entrepreneurs who are also accomplished authors. The crazy part is, two of them are teenagers.

I’m thrilled to introduce you to Eric Wohlwend, CEO and President of Clear Sky Properties and author of the #1 best-seller “The Family Success Triangle.”

Eric’s kids, Ethan and Deven, have already written several books, purchased more than 70 real estate properties between them, and started buying real estate when they were only 7 years old. Oh! And they know how to fly a plane. No biggie, right? You’d probably think I was kidding.

If your kids have shown any interest in starting businesses, entrepreneurship and dreaming big, you’re definitely going to love today’s episode!

In our conversation, we dig into:

  • Why you shouldn’t treat your kids like toddlers.
  • How to get your children to believe they can achieve anything in life.
  • The balance between being a strict and protective parent.

Here are my favorite moments from our conversation:

  • How sheltering your children from the real world can backfire.
  • What to do when your kids show entrepreneurial talent.
  • Raising unstoppable children who can overcome any obstacle.
  • Leading your family without being hyper-masculine.
