Kicking off the first episode of the podcast I talk with my friend Allan Branch about his experiences raising his two children while running a software company in Florida.
We cover topics of homeschooling, not keeping up with the Joneses, and his desires to travel the world on a boat with his family while teaching his kids how to be curious. Allan has a unique perspective on how curiosity is the key to education and lifetime learning. He weaves that into everything that he does with his children. He has an 8 year old and a 6 year old.

How Allan brings home the bacon
Allan’s last word of advice
Be prepared for the reality that children will send you to the highest of highs and the lowest of low places
