Building a Profession from Viral Content with Single Dad Carl Eppolito
There is no such thing as a happy divorce. Between the raw emotions, the potential for court battles, and the abrupt lifestyle change, divorce can dramatically alter the trajectory of your life- and the lives of kids caught in the middle.
Carl Eppolito experienced all of this when his short marriage came to a tumultuous end. Faced with the choice between his career or spending time with his young daughters, Carl ditched his successful professional path in order to focus on being present as a single dad.
The dramatic drop in his income, coupled with extensive legal fees, presented a new hurdle for Carl to leap. One day, Carl shared a poignant post about his daughters leaving for their time with their mom. It went viral overnight, and Carl found himself in the unfamiliar territory associated with online virality.
In this episode, Carl shares the behind-the-scenes reality of life as a rising internet personality, the impact it has on his daughters, and the ins and outs of sharing his personal life as a profession.
