This week's blog serves a slightly selfish purpose .... So the next time we have a little one, I'm more prepared for the birth!!
On Tuesday 19th September I helped deliver my beautiful baby girl Ella Sofia Turner into the world.
It was on this day I realised that I didn't quite prepare for my trip to the hospital to help birth little Ella so am noting down all the things I need to remember for next time, along with sharing some experiences from the day. Hopefully any expecting fathers or birthing partners can take something from this and prepare some bits for themselves in advance of being called into action.
Linking to the 5 P’s from my previous blog, I definitely lacked some planning for this event, but came fully prepared in the other areas, positivity, persistence, people & products.
So, let’s begin:
I loved being such a big part of the birth, and I was full of love and a little teary when I got to deliver Ella from the birthing pool on to Catherine’s chest.
I am enjoying being a daddy enormously already and the effort we have put in over the last couple of years to have mobile businesses with teams in place to give us as much time together as a new family we want, makes it all worth while. With a very sleepy baby and wife, I still manage to grab the odd half hour to an hour on the laptop if I want to and even managed to pop to the gym today to get my training back on track.
Thanks for reading, I’ll get back on topic next week with a business related blog, especially as during these last couple of weeks, I realised I am a lot closer to the 4 hour work week for all businesses than I thought - it’s surprising how much you can fit in to a short time slot when you need to!
If you have any specific areas you’d like me to cover around creating mobile, passive income businesses, let me know in the comments.
Have a great weekend,
p.s. As a new father and huge fan of everything mobile, the app Baby Tracker is excellent for tracking all the feeds & nappies! Not something I ever searched for before now but am glad it was out there for when we needed it.
