An Extraordinary Life Is Not An Either/Or Proposition
“Some people will remember the day you were born, some people will remember the day you died, but most are gonna remember that dash, right, that mark in between those two dates. And what is it that you want people to remember?” – Joel Louis
As busy entrepreneurs and business people, it is often a daily struggle to find balance in life. It is vital to stay connected to God, your spouse, your children, and other important people in your life. How do you keep those plates spinning and still find joy in your life?
In today’s episode, we will hear from entrepreneur, Joel Louis who has a show called the Startup Dad Headquarters Podcast. He is a husband, a father, works full time, and is an entrepreneur. Joel will share the importance of being intentional in every aspect of your life. Pursuing your dreams, using your talents, and staying connected with your family doesn’t have to be an either/or proposition if you know how to prioritize.
What you will learn:
- How to connect with the calling in your life
- How to embrace the gifts and talents that God has given you
- How to find joy right where you are
- Why saying “yes” to one thing means you have to say “no” to something else
“What’s the most important thing in your business, in your life right now? Focus on that and then when you get the chance, come back and pick up the pieces from that other stuff that you let go by. But we can’t balance everything. It’s a balancing act and we gotta just make sure we’re prioritizing the most important things in our lives, and then when we get some extra time, swing back around.”– Joel Louis
Start Up Dad Headquarters – Outstanding podcast that is on my personal playlist!
Hi, I’m Joel Louis founder of Startup Dad Headquarters (HQ). I’m on a mission to help extraordinary Father’s of today who are / want to be fully engaged in every aspect of their children lives and who are also trying to figure out how to purse their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to leave a legacy behind.
Our vision at Startup Dad HQ is to inspire and enable one small business launch every single day by father’s all over the world.
On, Father’s Day, 2014 I launched Startup Dad HQ, a business interview show / podcast, focused on the intersection between The Evolution of Dads and Entrepreneurship. Each interview takes us through the journey, of our guest,. They share their failures, bumps and bruises and their rise to the top as they navigated through the complexities of Fatherhood, Entrepreneurship and Life.
Startup Dad HQ also features webinars and live interactive workshops with content experts in all areas of Fatherhood and Entrepreneurship.

What matters most to me and everything that I do is for my family. I am married to a gorgeous NICU nurse and we have three beautiful daughters under the age of 6. I know in no time they will be off to college so my time with them, right now!, means more than anything.
Who am I? Well I like to think of myself as a Fortune 100 Corporate Dad gone ROGUE! After nearly 14 years as a highly successful manager at Intel Corporation I decided, enough was enough, it was time to stop working on someone else’s dream and start working on my own. It took me almost a year and a half of self exploration and lots of sleepless nights to pinpoint my true passions but when the dust settled it was clear! I wanted to build a platform that focused on the extraordinary Father’s of today who are fully engaged in every aspect of their children lives and have also managed to purse their dreams of entrepreneurship in order to leave a legacy behind.
