A Heartwarming Story of Love, Caring, and Connection
When he was 11, Sebastian's older brother TJ missed a cut for New England swim championships by a hair.
It would have been his first time advancing to championships, and he had been working hard all season to improve his technique.
He was crushed.
Sebastian was 8 at the time. Seeing how dejected his brother was, he scrounged around in our recycling bin and cobbled together a DIY trophy and a plaque for him out of a water bottle, bottle cap, sample size plastic cup, paper, and cardboard.
It meant the world to TJ.
Now 17, he *still* has this heartfelt, handmade gift from his little brother.
Love, caring, and human connection keep us going in dark times. In this Good Life Coach Podcast episode, I share the role they've played in my own journey towards founding OctoGifts with Sebastian, as well as:
- What to consider before going into business with your child
- How your life story might seem much more connected when you look back
- How a near-death experience fuels my work
Many thanks to Michele Lamoureux, The Good Life Coach, for having me!
