I am busy! I have Bluehost and other web companies that I run. I have over 100 employees, I have several properties that I own/manage (A TOTAL pain), and most importantly I have a wife and five kids to contend with. Of all those responsibilities family comes first and usually that means my children.
My kids absolutely wear me out, and I love every minute of it. My children range from 7 months to 9 years old. For those that don’t have kids it means that I am now an expert basketball coach having done it for 5 seasons in a row for various children. It also means I am an expert on “Dora the Explorer”, the start times of every “Sponge Bob” episode, and I can choose underwear wisely based on which cartoon character is imprinted on them. This all goes with the territory and is something that most parents cherish as their time with their little ones goes by so quickly.
I know this is a bit of a sappy blog entry, but I think I have finally arrived at a point where I truly realize that my family comes first and everything else comes second. I would never even consider missing one of my kids basketball or football games to get something done at work. Don’t get me wrong, I still stay up late working every night after everyone goes to bed (12:15 in the morning right now), and I still love doing web hosting, and I still have a hundred things that I want to improve and get done on Bluehost. I simply know that those things come after playing “Puzzle Bubble” with my 4 year old twins for 20 minutes before I go to work because that is their favorite thing to do with Daddy.
