Being a grandparent can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life. It is a time when you get to watch your children grow up and see them become parents themselves. The best way to be the best grandparent is to make sure that you are still a good parent, even when you don’t have your children around. This means spending quality time with your children and grandchildren, teaching them how to be responsible adults and giving them plenty of love and guidance.
In this episode, Gramps Jeffrey joins us. Gramps has four kids and six grandchildren and looks at how the kids are growing up as a baby boomer trying to understand how the world has evolved since he was three years old. As the author of the acclaimed business book “The Secrets of Retailing…How to Beat Walmart” and a contributor to The Huffington Post of over 100 articles on how to help the nonprofit world and also help grow small businesses, Gramps’ commentary is quite timely in the challenging world we live in.
