Family Brand: Take Back Your Family

May 4, 2023

Welcome back to the Family Brand Podcast! In this episode, Chris is joined by Justin Donald, the founder of The Lifestyle Investor and a Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Justin shares how his business was born out of his desire to be a more present husband and father.

As entrepreneurs, it's easy to get caught up in our businesses and unintentionally neglect our families. Justin shares how he shifted his mindset from being a businessman first to being a family man first. He began scheduling family time first, blocking out work around those commitments.

Justin emphasizes the importance of being intentional about growing together as a family. Without intentionality, families can grow apart. He and Chris discuss the rarity of adult siblings who remain close and how designing intentional relationships can help create lasting bonds.

Interestingly, Justin also shares how even the most successful entrepreneurs, like Warren Buffet, have regrets about sacrificing family for business success. This serves as a reminder that we should aim to prioritize our families as much as our businesses.

You'll also hear about the book "Shoe Dog" by Phil Knight and how it relates to Justin's experiences in Japan with his family. The book highlights the importance of family and how it shaped Knight's success.
