What is a parent’s Job?

The last two weeks my oldest has been late to school at least once. It’s a big event for her because she hates being late, but then she’s slow as molasses (like most kids) when it comes to getting ready. Today’s video is about how I let her have a problem because this is the […]

If you want something to blow up, you’re going to have to put the work in. Casey on Hustle: https://youtu.be/1YzwjfwNeEg Last weeks video […]
