I haven’t heard listened to the “Rents” episode. It is not available anymore in the podcast feed. Regardless, this episode is being presented as stand-alone episode which is ideal. I firmly believed that parenting style and the surrounding environment play a vital role in shaping someone’s character and his/her ambitions. There is no doubt that we’re are influenced by our parents success and their passion towards their jobs/hobbies/goals. Also, we can be nudged towards a hobby such as seen with Williams sisters who were driven to absorb/breath Tennis by the parents nudgings!
