“We were made to do hard things,” is Katie Wells family motto. Her popular website “Wellness Mama" features simple answers for healthier families. Mama to six children, she has found ways to bring lessons from the workplace to the management of her home. She systematizes her household (spreadsheets are one of her “love languages”). All this to empower her children- who by the way, have to start their own business before being given a cell phone or car! Joe De Sena and the Spartan Up team really learned a lot in this one and as Katie says, “if you want to change the trajectory of society… HELP THE MOMS!”

LESSONS Systematize your house Siloing: everything has a time & a place Raise adults not children: identify & align common goals Recognize the workflow & natural consequences Cold water helps with singleness of focus Define long-term priorities & core objectives Creating “white space” for kids creativity
