But one thing that they have learned over the years, through listeners of this podcast and members of the Dynamite Circle, is that stay-at-home moms (and dads too) tend to be a really good fit for location independent businesses. So, in this week’s episode, you’ll hear the stories of three women.
Louise Gray is one one of Kiri’s remote employees. She previously had a successful corporate career, in publishing and then at Sony, before having a baby made her reconsider the way she wanted to work.

- Why Kiri thinks stay-at-home moms make good remote employees. (1:01)
