Episode 44 – How She Retired Her Husband While Homeschooling and Running 2 Businesses with Tavia Redburn

In the Homeschool CEO community, anything is possible. That includes retiring your husband from his 9-5 (if that’s something you desire). 

It’s possible to build a successful business that retires your husband EVEN IF your husband works all day while you are busy on the homefront homeschooling and building your business. 

In fact, that’s exactly what Tavia Redburn did back in 2018. As a mom of 3 who also owns a busy photography studio, Tavia shares the amazing story of how she was able to retire her husband while homeschooling the kids. Tavia also shares what they do to make their non-traditional set-up work for their family.

“This is the kind of life we want. We want the kind of life where we can just pick up and go.” – Tavia

“I didn’t really care what other people had to say or what they thought, because I knew that this was what was right for our family. The only person I cared about what they thought was my husband.” – Tavia

“I think that I was able to grow quickly in my business because I chose a specialty, because I niched down.” – Tavia

“Niching down is probably the number one thing you can do if you really wanna scale.” – Jen
