Looking to balance work and family? LaTisha Styles shares her take and story on being a happily married entrepreneur!
Entrepreneurs + Marriage
One of the ways the pandemic has reshaped things is by seeing how many more people are working from home. I’ve seen different reports and estimates give ranging from 25-32%.
Working from home offers many benefits, but has its challenges. I’ve been working from home for years and had a flow. When my husband went full-time remote and the kids did the virtual academy with school, we knew we had reconfigured a few things to make it work.
We created spaces for school and work and had to adjust our schedules and routines. As working parents, we have to be careful that work doesn’t spill over to family time.
It’s especially hard as an entrepreneur, where you have a huge impact on your business’s bottom line.
This is why I’m pulling from the archives an interview I had with LaTisha Styles. She’s the Founder & CEO of You’ve Got Clients®, a marketing consultancy.
When I first met her she created Young Finances to help millennials build better habits with their money.
During our chat, Latisha shared her thoughts, experiences, and tips on being an entrepreneur and being fully engaged with her family.
In this episode we get into:
- what made Leticia start her own business
- creating boundaries for her family and business
- how she and her husband support one
I hope you enjoy it!

Rollover Your 401(k) Easily with Capitalize
We’re grateful for wonderful partners like Capitalize. Not only do they support the podcast, but they help make managing your money so much easier.
Did you know that it’s estimated that there are currently over 24 million “forgotten” 401(k) accounts? In fact, the average American changes jobs every 4 years.
And because of the Great Resignation, you or someone you know might be changing jobs even more
It’s an extreme case of out of sight and out of mind. Is your old 401(k) in there somewhere, left behind at a job you're no longer with?
One huge benefit with an IRA is you get to choose how your money is invested, not your old employer.
If you want to consolidate your old 401(k) and have more options with how you invest, it may be time to roll them over into an IRA.
With Capitalize, they handle the process from start-to-finish – for FREE. They handle the process from start-to-finish, and yes that includes calling the 401(k) provider on your behalf.
