True teams are made when you put aside individual wants for collective good
True teams are made when you put aside individual wants for collective good.
That quote certainly sums up my Mum-to-mum Monday guests today.
And yes, I did say guests. Because both members of an incredible husband-wife team are with me today, which also means we have our very first SuperDad on the show.
SuperMum, Angie-Newby Stubbs and her husband Ian Hunt have been together for 14 years and have two adorable daughters aged 8 and 2.
Angie and Ian both work in the construction industry. Angie as a designer, and Ian an architectural designer.
This time last year, Angie and Ian agreed to make a radical role change when Angie returned to work full time and became the family breadwinner and Ian took on the role of caring for their children and managing the home.
Listen in to find out why they made this decision, the effects it’s had on them as a couple and a family, and how things are working out one year on.

Let me know. Would you consider being the family breadwinner? Is that a lifestyle that would work for you? Or are you already in that role?
