There are things that men have been assigned to do genetically, socially, and spiritually.  One of the best things men get shredded for by the haters is not spending quality time with their families, being willing to change diapers, make lunches, run the kids to school, or step up when Moms need a break to tend to the important business of caring for themselves or for their extended family.  Today, Patrick is raw, real, and vulnerable.  He talks about having to step up and hold the fort down for his wife while she tends to some important family business. It was just Patrick and his four children all week.  And the important thing is he still had to show up for work somehow.   Sometimes, as entrepreneurs, we forget that one of the reasons we built a business is so we could be more available for our families. If Patrick was working in a Corporate position, or a regular job, he would’ve had to take vacation or PTO to tend to his family’s needs. Not this time.  In this episode, Patrick shares how he’s been able to build a business that technically doesn’t require him, but because of his commitment and passion for his partners and employees, it’s a hard switch to turn off.   This week, Patrick made more lunches, changed more dirty diapers, and ran the kids more places than he has had to in a while.  In this episode he breaks down what had to happen to allow him to create the opportunity to be available for his family at this very important time.  He’ll share the logistics of:  Delegating Hiring people to help you in your business The systems, processes, and support required to make it happen     If you’ve been struggling as a parent and entrepreneur in keeping everyone happy, including yourself, pull up a chair and listen closely. Patrick is about to drop some timeless wisdom on you.     How to Get Involved: Patrick Bolanos is a serial entrepreneur, business owner, and CEO of Trailer King Builders in Houston, Texas. He was raised in Nicaragua, exposed to extreme poverty, and also had the fortune of being exposed to life in the United States traveling back and forth to both countries.  After college, Patrick’s career took him into the corporate world of banking where he learned the important lessons of understanding what you’re selling and why it’s important to believe in it.  Back in December of 2017, Patrick was fired from his job as a CFO for a Restaurant Group.  With only $500 to his name, rent due, his wife, 3 children at home, and one on the way, he was forced to figure out how to pull his family out of this financial abyss that was strangling his life.  With no knowledge of how to build a trailer, Patrick simply figured all of it out and has now built it into the thriving empire of what’s now become Trailer King Builders.
