S2 | E5: Wanting it All, or Nothing at All: A Case for Being 'Married to your Work'

The Founder's Mindset

Sep 7 2022 • 1 hr 6 mins

In this episode Gena spoke with Ray and Rebecca Girn, two people who utterly defy all conventional wisdom about maintaining work-life balance.

When it comes to both work and love, they are, as they often describe it, “all in”. Ray and Rebecca are part of the founding team of Higher Ground Education, which offers a radically different kind of education, centred around developing natural interests rather than formal teaching. Higher Ground owns and operates over 100 Montessori schools, one of which Gena’s daughter attends.

This is a conversation about what it’s like to put all your eggs in one basket. Ray and Rebecca don’t mince words about what makes that approach so difficult, but they’ll also get you thinking about why it’s so sublimely and unquestionably worth it.
