This week’s guest is Carrie Paxton. Carrie was raised in a typical family and was the epitome of traditional school success, but she’s chosen a far-from-typical lifestyle. As an entrepreneur fueled by her passion for education, she wants to break the mold of classroom-based learning to show children and their families that real life and learning isn’t limited to school. Through her mastermind groups and tutoring business, Carrie is proving that kids who don’t fit into the system can still be wildly successful at life by learning something different, learning somewhere different, and learning differently. In this episode we cover the following topics with Carrie: Her very “normal” childhood and learning the basics of personal finance ([2:30] minute). Starting Carrie’s Saturday Side School as an elementary school student and other early entrepreneurial ventures ([4:00] minute). Doing good right away; not waiting until your business or personal wealth is a particular size ([7:00] minute). Scholarship and mastermind groups that she runs to give back; modeling that giving habit for others ([9:00] minute). How to disrupt the education system and some thoughts around homeschooling ([12:00] minute). Masterminds: how they’ve changed Carrie’s life and how she is trying to incorporate them into the lives of the students she works with ([17:30] minute).

The Small Moves Podcast
This is an experimental format for the Small Moves Podcast, where I hop on with guest co-host, Carrie Paxton. A brilliant, beautiful, and amazing woman… who I happen to be married to. The entire concept of Small Moves is to show the incremental steps need to make drastic change over time in whatever area your life. Well, I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t showcase that strategy in my own life! Carrie and I are constantly experimenting with things, trying to make our lives and businesses and health better. This is the first try at doing a periodic check in episode with the two of us discussing things we’re working on and the successes and failures we’ve experienced. We talk about my new business and website, Small Moves We discuss her new business, launching by weeks end, Building Blocks Education We talk about our kiddos and all the crazy stuff we are planning to do with them. This was a fun chat for me. As it always is when Carrie and I dig in to stuff. I hope you all enjoy it and give us some feedback about what you thought of the show.
