“Do you ever wonder what might happen if you chose not to work late on a deadline because you need to take care of your family? Do you ever daydream about working part time, but wonder how it may impact your career? Do you ever wonder what it would be like to stay home on Fridays with you little baby or to leave work early every day to get your kids off the bus or to leave early most days to see your kid's soccer games, or swim meets, or baseball practice? How would these impact your career? Maybe others would think that you couldn't travel anymore, or maybe you wouldn't be given the premier projects because others think that you're less available'. And maybe they'd be right   is that going to delay your career progress? And does it matter?”
family-200x300Above is a quote from a recent entry at the new blog,

Do you ever wonder?

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if the profession evolved to universally accept flex time and remote studios?

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if our professional cultures throughout the world put a priority of raising families over making money?

Do you ever wonder what could happen when one person recognizes a problem and decides to take the lead to find a solution.

This week on the Entrepreneur Architect Podcast, I am speaking with the founder of Amy Kalar is one such person who has decided to stop watching from the sidelines. She is a leader in our profession and is pushing us all to wonder.
