What Gets Measured Gets Improved with Larry Hagner

In this episode of the Dad Edge Podcast, Larry Hagner discusses the importance of measuring progress and introduces a new tool called the Five Dials, which helps participants track their growth in various areas of their lives. The boardroom is a tight-knit group of dad business owners who focus on growing their businesses, improving their marriages, and strengthening their relationships with their kids. Larry also highlights the trifecta of business, marriage, and parenting and emphasizes the importance of creating a nurturing environment for open communication with our children. Family connection and self-improvement are two essential aspects of a fulfilling and meaningful life. One of the metrics mentioned is the "boardroom score" based on the concept of family board meetings by Jim Shields. This score rates how well the speaker is connecting with his family and children. It emphasizes the importance of having a five-year vision and regularly reviewing and working towards it. One aspect of self-improvement that is often overlooked is the relationship between physical fitness and mental and emotional well-being. Larry Hagner highlights the importance of maintaining fitness in order to achieve better mental and emotional fitness. He also mentions that many people experience a decline in their fitness over time, but they strive to push themselves and their team to improve their physical fitness quarter over quarter.

As well as the importance of setting clear goals, having a plan, and regularly checking in with an accountability partner or group. By doing so, individuals can significantly increase their chances of success in various areas of life.

Life is Hard, Succeed Any Way with Allan Blain

Allan Blain is the former owner and CEO of a $40 million dollar real estate investment company. After realizing that he was not pursuing his true purpose and calling, he launched what he calls his “work-from-anywhere” freedom business, teaching everyday people how to create passive income streams from their phones. Today, he has grown his organization to include over 10,000 others spanning 10 countries, producing millions in annual revenue, and representing countless lives that have been positively impacted by his company’s food supplements. In this episode of The Dad Edge, Larry sits down with Allen Blain to discuss the challenges of life and the importance of vulnerability. They delve into the misconception created by social media and how it can make people believe that others have always been successful without facing any hardships. Allen also shares his own journey of embracing vulnerability and the positive impact it has had on encouraging others.  Embracing change strengthens relationships. This is the underlying theme of the podcast transcript between Larry and Allen. Throughout their conversation, Allen shares his personal journey of embracing change and how it has impacted his relationships, particularly with his wife, Nicole. Despite being in law enforcement for five years, Allen felt called to a different path. He recognized that his entrepreneurial spirit and desire for personal growth were not aligned with a long-term career in law enforcement.  This decision required a leap of faith, as he was giving up a stable job and financial security. However, Allen's willingness to embrace change and follow his calling ultimately strengthened his relationship with his wife. Tragedy can strike anyone at any time, and it is how we respond to these challenges that define us. Allen's story is a reminder that even in the midst of the darkest moments, there is always a glimmer of hope and an opportunity for personal growth.  By reevaluating our choices, finding our true purpose, and surrounding ourselves with a supportive community, we can overcome even the most devastating tragedies.

Matt also shares his joy in coaching baseball and the intensity of the eleven-year-old players. He then delves into the life lessons he wants to pass down to his children, both boys and girls.  Matt Doan highlights the significance of understanding that femininity does not equate to being female.

By doing so, he believes they can lead fulfilling and authentic lives. This episode demonstrates the negative impact of corporate life on happiness and well-being. Matt’s experience of feeling trapped, unfulfilled, and disconnected from their values and priorities is relatable to many individuals in similar positions.

Nurturing Fatherhood and Self-Discovery After Childhood Adversity with Adam Prince

Adam Prince is a member of Dad Edge Alliance. Some individuals, like Adam Prince, have experienced childhood trauma and instability that can have lasting effects on their lives. Adam opens up about his journey of overcoming these challenges and creating a better future for himself and his family. In this episode, Adam Prince and Larry discuss the power of overcoming childhood trauma and making a conscious effort to change the game. They dive into the importance of breaking patterns and creating a different life despite challenges.  Adam describes his childhood as marked by instability. He moved between several different schools, houses, and apartments, even living in a motel for a period of time. This constant upheaval created a sense of uncertainty and unpredictability in his life.  This conversation between Adam and Larry highlights the importance of acknowledging and overcoming childhood trauma and instability. It is not enough to simply accept these experiences as part of one's identity. Instead, individuals must actively work towards healing, understanding, and breaking the patterns that have been ingrained in them. Adam's story is a powerful example of resilience and the capacity to overcome adversity. Despite the instability and trauma he experienced, he has chosen to take control of his life and create a different path.   Resilience and gratitude are two powerful qualities that can help individuals overcome adversity and find strength in the face of challenges. From a young age, Adam experienced the absence of his biological father, who left when he was little and only reappeared briefly when he was 12. This lack of a stable father figure could have easily left him feeling abandoned and resentful. However, Adam chooses not to dwell on the negative emotions associated with his father's departure. Instead, he focuses on the lessons he learned and the resilience he gained from navigating life without a consistent male presence. Adam's ability to share his experiences with his own children is a testament to his resilience and gratitude. Rather than shielding them from the realities of his past, he chooses to have open and honest conversations with them. He does not shy away from discussing the hardships he endured but presents them in a matter-of-fact manner. This approach allows his children to see the strength and resilience that can emerge from adversity.

How To Navigate and Overcome the Evil That Pervades Our Society Through Storytelling with Ben Pauling

Ben Pauling is a writer, director, and actor. He is known for his new film Dream (2023), which highlights the issues of child trafficking in America. In this episode, the host Larry Hagner welcomes guest Ben Pauling to discuss a topic that has been gaining a lot of attention. They briefly touch on Ben's personal life before diving into the main subject. They mention the release of some films and the media's coverage of the issue, which has created a perfect storm for their own film.  Ben Pauling emphasizes that human trafficking is an issue of utmost importance and one that demands immediate attention. He also highlights the need for rescue missions and organizations dedicated to combating this problem. However, despite the efforts of these organizations, less than 1% of trafficked children are currently rescued. This statistic underscores the enormity of the challenge and the urgent need for increased awareness, resources, and action. Awareness is key in prevention, especially when it comes to the issue of human trafficking. One of the common misconceptions is that human trafficking only happens in certain areas or to certain types of people. However, the reality is that it can occur anywhere, from small towns to large cities, and can affect people from all walks of life. This lack of awareness is dangerous because it allows predators to operate unnoticed and continue their heinous crimes. By supporting these organizations and advocating for stronger laws and policies, we can contribute to the fight against child trafficking on a larger scale.

Tom Dobrez is the author of “Root Root Root for the Home Teams: A Chicago Fan's Odyssey to Find the Meaning of Life Through Sports”, an autobiographical account of his life as a sports fan. In this memoir, he examines how sports can teach us about family and success in life.  In this episode of the Dad Edge podcast, Larry Hagner welcomes author Tom Dobrez to discuss his book "Root, Root, Root" and his unique childhood experiences with his father.

This episode offers a heartfelt exploration of the father-son relationship and the impact it can have on a child's life. Tom describes how his father was their baseball coach, and they would often play organized sports together. However, it was not just organized sports that filled their days. Tom's father built a small ball field in their backyard, providing the perfect setting for their baseball games. The family's love for sports extended to attending professional sporting events, such as Chicago White Sox, Blackhawks, and Bears games. This exposure to sports and outdoor activities created a foundation for Tom's love of sports and physical activity. Engaging in outdoor play has numerous benefits for children's physical and mental well-being.

Playing sports and games also teaches children the importance of teamwork, communication, and fair play. Additionally, being outdoors exposes children to fresh air and sunlight, which are essential for overall health and well-being. Outdoor play also has significant mental health benefits. Being in nature has a calming effect on the mind and reduces stress and anxiety. It allows children to disconnect from technology and experience the natural world around them. In today's digital age, where children are often glued to screens and have limited opportunities for outdoor play, it is crucial to recognize the importance of outdoor play in childhood. Tom's childhood experiences highlight the joy and benefits of spending time outdoors, engaging in physical activities, and building connections with others.

Also pivotal is the role of parents as validators who affirm their child's capabilities. However, Scott cautions against over-validation, which can diminish the impact of genuine achievements. He also touches on the significance of clear boundaries, using his own strict rules around behaviors like drinking, drugs, and tattoos as an example, to steer children towards positive behaviors. In summary, Scott paints a compelling picture of parenting as mentorship and validation. This model encourages the nurturing of a child's inherent strengths, mutual growth, and the setting of boundaries. By embracing this approach, parents can foster strong connections with their children, providing them with a trusted confidant and mentor throughout their lives.

Top 10 Lessons for a Successful Marriage with Larry Hagner

In this episode, Larry Hagner delves into the glaring absence of comprehensive education on what makes a marriage successful, and the trials many couples face as a result of this deficiency in knowledge and skills. Larry turns the spotlight on his own marriage, expressing his heartfelt gratitude as he crosses the two-decade milestone. Additionally, Larry touches upon the escalating divorce rates and explores whether a lack of these crucial skills might be a major contributing factor. One of the primary hurdles in marriage, according to Larry Hagner, lies in the intrinsic differences between men and women. Our needs, our ways of operation, and our communication styles all differ. Without a clear understanding and appreciation of these disparities, conflicts can surface, triggering misunderstandings and resentment. Consequently, it becomes imperative to learn how to bridge these differences and communicate effectively in order to sustain a healthy and harmonious relationship. Throughout the podcast, Larry Hagner underscores the lack of formal training or education in the domains of marriage and parenting. Unlike other professional pursuits that demand rigorous training and certification, marriage and parenting are typically a journey of trial and error. This dearth of guidance can leave couples feeling directionless and ill-prepared to tackle the challenges they encounter. Larry Hagner proposes that with the right set of skills and knowledge, we as couples can surmount these challenges and lay a robust foundation for our marriage. Similar to how a GPS aids in navigation by offering clear directions and information about potential roadblocks, acquiring marriage skills can steer couples through the labyrinth of married life. These skills encompass effective communication, conflict resolution, empathy, emotional intelligence, and understanding one's partner's needs. Ultimately, Larry Hagner believes that mastering marriage skills is integral to building and sustaining a successful and fulfilling relationship. Living in a society where divorce rates are at an all-time high and relationships encounter numerous challenges, it's essential for us as couples to be educated and guided on how to navigate the intricacies of married life. By honing skills like effective communication, conflict resolution, empathy, and emotional intelligence, we can overcome challenges, reinforce our bond, and cultivate a lasting and joyful marriage.

Embracing Forgiveness, Authenticity, and the Path to Eternity with Josh White

Josh White is a musician who is still involved in music and has a record label at the church. His ethos and philosophy revolve around fatherhood, broken relationships, forgiveness, grace, and faith. He believes in breaking the cycle, creating change, surrendering to God's perfect plan, and embracing vulnerability and humility in relationships. In this episode, Larry sits down with Josh White as he shares his challenging upbringing and the absence of a stable father figure in his life. He grew up in a depressed mill town and experienced multiple stepfathers who were either disconnected or abusive. His biological father was an alcoholic and drug addict. Their relationship was distant, but they reconnected later in life, and Josh became a supportive presence for him before his father's death. Josh White's experience with his biological father is a central theme in his story. He describes the initial disconnect and the subsequent reconnection that occurred during his last year of high school. This highlights the importance of open communication and the potential for relationships to evolve and grow over time. Despite the challenges they faced, Josh and his father were able to establish a real relationship before his father's passing. This demonstrates the power of vulnerability and the potential for transformation in even the most difficult circumstances. Josh's understanding of forgiveness goes beyond simply forgiving someone. He believes in actively working towards rebuilding relationships, even with someone as complicated and difficult as his father. He attributes this mindset to his faith and the lessons he learned from the Lord. He emphasizes the importance of the cross in his book, as it represents God's willingness to enter into human suffering and offer grace. Josh's personal experiences have shaped his understanding of forgiveness and grace. He shares that he had a complex family dynamic, being the oldest of three brothers with different fathers. Despite the challenges, he formed a close bond with his younger brother, who had a different father. Josh took on a father figure role for his brother, given the absence of their biological father.  This experience allowed him to understand the importance of boundaries and parameters in creating a sense of safety and freedom.

Faith, Fatherhood, and Forever Love with Justin Gaston

Justin Gaston is an American actor, singer, songwriter, and model who built his career in multiple fields. Justin Gaston has been ruling over millions of hearts with his incredibly amazing performances and this led him to earn various awards and honors in his career. In this episode of the Dad Edge Podcast, Larry Hagner sits down with Justin Gaston and talks about his own experience with infertility and the impact it had on their marriage. He shared how they initially struggled to conceive and had to seek medical assistance. The process was filled with uncertainty and setbacks, but eventually, they were able to conceive their first child. However, their journey didn't end there, as they went on to have four more children in quick succession. Feeling a deep desire to become parents, the couple turned to prayer and sought guidance from their faith. Adoption had always been on the wife's heart, and they felt that God was calling them to pursue this path. They prayed for guidance and support throughout the adoption process. From the moment they decided to adopt to the time their oldest daughter was placed in their arms in the hospital, only four months had passed. The speed and smoothness of the adoption process were seen as a blessing and a sign that it was meant to be. Throughout his journey, Justin has learned to pray for guidance and direction from God. He no longer needs to see the whole picture but asks for one step at a time. This mindset is a testament to his faith and willingness to surrender control to God. He recognizes that certainty is a basic human need, but he has chosen to trust in God's plan instead of seeking complete certainty in his own life. Concluding the interview, Justin's upbringing in a loving and stable family, with parents who demonstrated love and affection, shaped his values of respect, kindness, and commitment in relationships.  Justin's upbringing serves as a reminder of the impact that family, love, and support can have on shaping an individual's values and character.

He is also a foster parent who has welcomed 29 kids into his home since June 2018. In this episode, Larry converses with Roman about his journey as a foster father.

Playful Connections: Empowering Parents and Kids Through Play with Talia Filippelli and Anna Yudina

She is an ambassador and contributing expert for The Genius of Play. Anna Yudina is a Senior Director of Marketing Initiatives at The Toy Association, emphasizes the cognitive benefits of unstructured play. In our digitally-driven world, parents often find themselves grappling with the challenges of managing their children's screen time while trying to nurture their emotional well-being. In this episode of The Dad Edge podcast, Larry Hagner engages in a thought-provoking conversation with Talia Filippelli, founder of Star Therapy, and Anna Yudina, a senior director at the Toy Association. The discussion centers around the transformative power of play and its profound impact on parent-child relationships and children's emotional well-being. The episode highlights the alarming trend of children becoming dependent on screens, which stifles their imagination and creativity. Excessive screen use restricts their ability to engage in unstructured play–a vital component of their development. The guests underscore the importance of allowing children ample time for imagination-fueled play, enabling them to explore their world, think creatively, and develop problem-solving skills. Research shows that fathers' involvement in physical play with their children plays a pivotal role in emotional regulation skills development and future relationship building. By engaging in activities that promote physical exertion and emotional bonding, fathers provide a safe space for children to express their emotions, develop self-control, and navigate relationships effectively. As parents, it is crucial that we harness the power of play to strengthen our connection with our children and support their emotional well-being. Through play, we create lifelong memories and lay the foundation for their future success.

Optimizing Health and Longevity with Josh Whalen

Josh Whalen is an entrepreneur, healthcare executive, developer, philanthropist, and the CEO and founder of Blokes, a pioneering telehealth platform designed to redefine men's health. He has dedicated himself to creating innovative solutions to pressing issues. In this enlightening conversation, Josh Whalen discusses the concerning trend of decreasing testosterone levels in men, their causative factors, and implications on overall health. The intricate relationship between stress, sleep, exercise, and testosterone levels is examined, bringing valuable insights and personal anecdotes into the discussion.  Josh Whalen shared his personal journey, transitioning from the so-called "4am club," where he'd rise early for gym workouts, to a more balanced regimen that incorporated additional sleep. Despite his rigorous exercise routine, he struggled with a persistently high body fat percentage. After prioritizing quality sleep, his body fat percentage drastically dropped, suggesting a link with increased testosterone levels. The intricate dynamics of cortisol (the stress hormone) and testosterone were emphasized. Elevated stress levels, often stemming from inadequate sleep and lifestyle habits, can detrimentally affect testosterone levels. This finding stresses the importance of managing stress and securing sufficient sleep to uphold healthy testosterone levels. The dialogue serves as an urgent call to action, emphasizing the importance of regular health checks and proactive health management. Often, men may remain oblivious of their dwindling testosterone levels until they encounter severe symptoms. Therefore, partners and family members assume a crucial role in encouraging men towards regular health evaluations. In conclusion, the pathway to longevity and improved quality of life involves proactive health management. Being aware and taking the correct actions today can protect men from potential health complications in the future.

He is arming parents with the necessary skills to become better communicators, listeners, and leaders for their children. According to recent CDC data, teenage suicide is now the second leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States, with the pandemic and increased cell phone usage contributing to the surge in mental health issues among the youth. These concerning statistics emphasize the urgency of addressing the mental health of our children. Jason stressed the importance of active listening and creating a safe space for children to express their feelings freely. He pointed out that often, in our attempts to console our kids, we may unintentionally dismiss their feelings, which could have harmful consequences. Recognizing the difference between occasional sadness and persistent symptoms of depression or anxiety is vital. Interestingly, Jason's passion for music and his guitars, symbolizes the need to have personal interests, acting as a reminder that life isn't solely about the hardships but also about the joys that make it worth living. In this urgent fight against teenage suicide, we, as parents, can make a difference by providing support, fostering open conversations about mental health, and teaching our kids to navigate through life's challenges.

How to Become Bully Proof with Rich Grogan

Rich Grogan is a dedicated master martial artist, inspirational leader, best-selling author, and devoted father. As the creator of the Grogan's Bully Proof System and author of "Becoming Bully Proof", Master Rich Grogan aims to empower 10 million kids and adults with hope, faith, and confidence to believe in themselves and stand up to every bully they face, both real and in their minds. In a recent Dad Edge podcast episode with Larry, Rich shares his passion for personal growth, discipline, and self-improvement, focusing on the challenging aspects of parenting and guiding kids through their formative years. As parents, it's natural for us to want to be heroes to our children, shielding them from life's adversities and serving as their role models. However, it's crucial to recognize that our kids need to be the heroes of their own stories. We can act as guides, assisting them in making the right decisions, but they must ultimately find their own balance and become their own heroes. One way to act as a guide is by being vulnerable and transparent with our kids. Sharing our personal experiences, both positive and negative, enables our children to learn from our mistakes and successes. Additionally, providing them with the necessary tools and resources to make informed choices is essential. It's also vital to discuss bullying with our kids and explore ways to prevent it, helping them develop the skills and strategies needed to stand up for themselves and others. In conclusion, parents should strive to be guides, not heroes. Our children need us to support them and equip them with the necessary tools and resources to become their own heroes. While we can provide a safe haven for them when they require assistance, they must ultimately be the heroes of their own stories.

Working Through Conflict In Marriage and Parenting with Jayson Gaddis

Jayson Gaddis is an executive coach, author, podcaster, speaker, a global leader on interpersonal conflict and connection, and is the founder & CEO of The Relationship School. Today, he joins Larry to talk about his new book "Getting to Zero: How to Work Through Conflict in Your High Stakes Relationships", and discusses the importance of conflict resolution in relationships. Conflict resolution is vital for successful long-term relationships. Whether it’s a family, a business partnership, or a team, we have to learn how to work through conflict in order to maintain a healthy relationship. When Jayson talks about “getting to zero,” he means that it’s our baseline for feeling good and connected. When there’s no conflict or unresolved issues, we’re at zero. But when conflict arises, our number goes up to one through ten, with ten being the worst. We can be triggered and activated, enraged, or totally shut down. Although Jayson doesn’t like conflict, he has a passion for conflict resolution. He’s motivated by the bad feeling he gets when he’s at odds with someone. He wants to figure out a way to help the average person because conflict resolution isn’t something we’re taught in school or college. It’s a vital life skill that everyone should learn. It’s important to remember that conflict isn’t always a bad thing. It can be a way to deepen our connection with someone. When we work through a conflict and get to the other side, we have a better understanding of each other and a stronger relationship.

You Have Everything You Need to Be a Great Dad with Dr. Meg Meeker

Dr. Meg Meeker is a renowned pediatrician, speaker, and author, best known for her best-selling book "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters”. Today, Dr. Meg Meeker joins Larry to explore the crucial role fathers play in their daughters' lives and discuss practical strategies for fostering strong, healthy relationships. Dr. Meeker also shared her wisdom on fatherhood and how dads can tap into their potential to positively impact their children's lives. One way for dads to connect with their kids is through affection. Affection is a powerful way of communicating to a child that they are seen, heard, and understood. It can be as simple as a pat on the back, a hug, or a high five. It doesn't have to take a lot of time, but it can make all the difference. When it comes to expressing your feelings, dads should not be afraid to open up to their kids. Kids need to learn how to express love, be affectionate, and be attentive and listen. Kids don't need to know all the mistakes you made when you were 17, but they do need to know that you have bad days and that it's okay to express your feelings. Overall, dads should recognize the important role they play in their children's lives and strive to connect with them through affection. A little bit of affection can go a long way and can help create a strong bond between a dad and his kids. Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by Dr. Meg Meeker

Family is truly everything and it is this kind of unconditional love and support that allows fathers to be their best selves.  When a father is called to pursue a certain path, no matter how difficult, his family is often the first to stand by him and support him. This is exemplified by Matthew McConaughey's experience in his film “Time to Kill”, where his family encouraged him to carry on despite the danger. Ultimately, it is this kind of support that allows fathers to pursue their calling and make a positive impact on the world.  Greenlights by Matthew Mcconaughey

This phrase speaks to the idea that a father should always be a few steps ahead of his teenage children in order to be able to offer them guidance and advice. Dennis mentions that the best way for fathers to stay ahead of their teenage children is to stay engaged with them and be willing to listen to their thoughts and opinions. Dennis adds that fathers should also be willing to ask questions and be open to learning new things. This will help them to stay current with their children and be able to offer them the best advice possible. Finally, Dennis said that as a father, you should be setting an example for your children and teaching them the values that they need to be successful in life.

The Ultimate Guide to Raising Teens and Tweens with Douglas Haddad

Douglas Haddad is an award-winning middle school teacher, international speaker, and best-selling author of the book “The Ultimate Guide to Raising Teens and Tweens: Strategies for Unlocking Your Child’s Full Potential”. He has taught over 3,000 students in 23 years as an educator, working with children from all different backgrounds and abilities. Today, Douglas joins Larry to talk about his book and gives valuable advice to all listeners, whether they have a direct or indirect impact on a child's life.  Raising children can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to the teenage years. However, there are 3 keys that can help parents navigate this difficult period: Love, Listen, and Respect.  The first key is Love. Douglas explained that all children desire to feel loved. This is the foundation for a strong bond between parent and child. When a child knows that their parents will always have their back even during difficult times, it opens the door for communication.  The second key is to Listen. Douglas noted that children want to be heard and understood. This means more than just hearing what they have to say; it means listening to understand, not to reprimand. It is important to let children know that their thoughts and feelings are valued.  The last key is Respect. Children desire to be accepted and respected. When they enter the teenage years, they start to break away from their parents and look to their peers for acceptance. It is important to show respect for the decisions they make, even if they are not what you would choose.  When parents show these three qualities, it helps to create a strong bond between parent and child. It also helps children to feel valued and respected, which is essential for their development. By applying these three keys, parents can ensure that their children will grow up to be successful and independent. Never Give Up No Matter What by Mason Hagner

Raising Good Young Men Through The Father and Son Connection with Luke Entrup

Luke Entrup is a coach, teacher, father, founder of the Contemplative Leadership Institute, and the creator of The Father Son Connection Experience, a rite-of-passage experience for boys aged 10-14 and their father figures designed to help boys navigate the shift from childhood to the teen years, and deepens the bond between fathers and their sons. Luke and Larry discussed the importance of rites of passage—ceremonial demarcations of passing certain stages of life. Luke said that raising good men is a long and arduous process that requires a lot of effort and dedication. He said it is important to remember that connection is the key to raising good men. By providing your sons with a safe and supportive environment to explore and express themselves, you can help them gain the confidence and courage to become the best versions of themselves.  It is also important to provide your sons with positive role models. By having positive role models in our lives, you can help your sons to develop a strong sense of self and a strong sense of purpose. We should also provide them with the opportunity to participate in rites of passage and to experience the feeling of accomplishment that comes with it.  By providing our sons with a safe and supportive environment to explore and express themselves, we can help them to gain the confidence and courage to become the best versions of themselves.

Mike adds that the pursuit of joy and wonder is a powerful force that can change our lives for the better. It can be found in the little moments of everyday life and in the bigger, more meaningful moments. Joy and wonder bring us closer to our true selves, and can bring us closer to those we love. It is important to remember that life is too short not to have fun. When we are present for our families, we are showing them that we care and that we value our relationships.

This means taking action and doing the things that you know need to be done, even if you don't feel like it. He also suggests using your time wisely.

It entails reflecting on your objectives and dreams and taking action to make them a reality.  Larry's story serves as a reminder that life is precious and should be lived to the fullest. We should strive to live a purposeful life, focusing on the things that bring us joy and enrich our lives. We should spend our life in such a way that we leave a legacy for our children and future generations. Life is too short to spend it worrying about money. Instead, focus on living a purposeful life and creating a legacy that will last generations.

The Living Adventurous Method with Andy Way

Andy Way is is an author, speaker, and coach who helps parents and young adults connect with their truth and power so they can live happier, more fulfilling lives. He is the creator of Always Adventure, a powerful training methodology that helps connect people with their true selves so they can live happier, more fulfilling lives. Andy discussed his mission of “the art of living adventurously”. He explained how he was a “crust father”, unable to save his son from the pain and suffering he was going through. He was feeling helpless, until he stumbled upon a YouTube video of people riding dirt bikes in the backcountry of Colorado. This sparked something in him and led him to dive deep into the world of adventure motorcycling.  Andy then identified five powerful practices with five specific outcomes. The fifth and final practice is seeking excitement. The outcome of seeking excitement is to energize your life and bring more joy and happiness. It is important to be intentional about seeking joy and excitement, as it can be easy to get overwhelmed and forget to take time for yourself. By taking time for yourself, you can recharge and be better able to handle the challenges life throws at you. It is also important to remember that seeking joy and excitement is not selfish; it is necessary in order to be the best version of yourself.

Taking Charge of Your Finances with Sam Dogen

28% of Americans don't have any savings to cover bills in case of emergencies. And another 21% said they had some money saved up, but not enough to cover even three months of expenses if needed. Being a husband and father means that we are the providers for our families. My guest shares simple and effective strategies to lower our financial stress, save for emergencies and how to work together as a team with our wives to create a financial future that we can feel good about. In 2009, Sam Dogen founded Financial Samurai, one of the top independently owned personal finance sites today with over 1 million organic visitors a month. During the middle of the financial crisis in 2009, he began Financial Samurai to help make sense of the financial crisis. He had been working in finance for 10 years and thought he had been doing all the right things with my money – saving 50%+, diversifying into real estate, maxing out my 401(k), etc. Yet, he still lost about 35% of my net worth within a matter of six months. It was a humbling experience. On the bright side, the financial crisis made him realize that he no longer wanted to work in the financial services industry. He lost the hunger to make lots of money and climb the corporate ladder after 13 years in the business. Instead, the downturn focused his attention on something he really enjoyed doing: writing and connecting with others online. He found himself addicted to Financial Samurai before work, during his lunch break, and after work. He was having so much fun! Therefore, in the Fall of 2011, he came up with the idea of negotiating a severance to be free from work for good. Sam has been married for 14 years and is the father of 2 kids. Show Notes:

Rites of Passage: Opening the Door Into Manhood with Bill Winchester

We are discussing rites of passage. This is something that is needed in our culture. My guest today is Bill Winchester and I wanted to bring him on because this subject is a must in today’s society. Bill and I talk about why a rite of passage is important, the things that are most meaningful for these young men to experience when they are going through a rite of passage.  As far back as he can remember, Bill’s life has been a mix of hard work and the pursuit of fun adventures. His parents, who both experienced difficult and even tragic upbringings, married young and quickly set about doing the best they could to raise a family. But it’s hard to build anything solid on broken foundations. Growing up as the firstborn son, Bill embraced his role of leader and protector for his two younger sisters. And as he watched his parents struggle to overcome the challenges of their childhoods while raising kids of their own, he learned first hand how important healthy families are for the future of our world. Just before starting high school Bill met a cute girl named Christie, and seven years later they were married. Within months of getting married Bill started his own remodeling company and then he and Christie learned that they were going to be parents sooner than they had planned. Fast forward 22 years, and Bill’s life has been full with one daughter, two sons, years of watching theater performances, coaching football and baseball, and taking his family on adventures wherever he can find them. Over the last few years, as his children have grown more capable and less dependent, Bill has felt an increasing urgency to help other fathers prepare their children to successfully transition into healthy manhood (and womanhood). And so, after 25+ years of building spaces, Bill is setting out on a new adventure as a builder of peak moments and HEROIC Men. As this episode is releasing, he is facilitating his first Father and Son Rite of Passage in the Deschutes National Forest outside of beautiful Bend, Oregon. If you’re interested in learning more about the importance of Rites of Passage, Bill would love to connect with you and even has a book he’d like to give to you and your son.

In 2019, he became the first person to win all three 200 mile races and set course records at each race. That same year Mike went out and ran and set a speed record for the 500 mile Colorado trail.This year Mike will be heading out to try to set a new speed record on the Arizona trail, which is an 800 mile trail.   Fatherhood comes with adversity and I just know this interview will shed some light on how to pursue the live you deserve for you and your family.   Show notes:

This is a replay of a podcast I was on called From Porn to Purpose.   You will hear me share a story that I have not shared on any podcast, but as I said, given the right environment, one can open up, and that is why I was able to bring it up and be open with you men.    Show Notes:

Improving Your Fitness, Fellowship and Faith with Frank Schwartz

Today I am talking to Frank Schwartz. He is the current president of F3. He is also an entrepreneur, but he started this journey by joining F3 with the intent of “not being fat anymore”. The complete trajectory of his life would change, however, from that point. He caught the vision of Sua Sponte leadership and in not too long a time, he found himself being asked to help with things at the Nation level. At the beginning of 2020, he began serving as the first ever President of F3 Nation, under the re-organized F3 structure. Because of the dramatic effect of F3 on his life, he founded a leadership training consultancy in December of 2019, called G3L Leadership. G3L takes all the learnings from F3, as well as the training in communication, leadership, and Psychology that Frank has taken in his undergraduate and Graduate studies and puts it all together to help organizations create leaders. Frank has been a successful entrepreneur prior to his starting of G3L, founding LEC Media in 2007, a corporate communications and video firm in Charlotte, NC which served clients like, Bank of America, Electrolux, Honeywell, and others.

Permission to Dream with Chris Gardner

Life Principles and the Joy of Fatherhood with Matthew McConaughey

Alright, alright, alright is the famous phrase coined by the illustrious Matthew McConaughey. He is an actor, father, husband, and author. When Matthew was younger, his father instilled in him three principles for life – “Don’t say can’t,” “love, don’t hate,” “tell the truth, don’t lie” and he has carried these principles throughout his life. Matthew McConaughey has acted in over 50 films and is the co-founder of the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation alongside his wife, Camila. The two have three children and currently reside in Austin, Texas. Throughout his life, Matthew has learned that putting the energy into your family will produce results far greater than if you go it alone. He recalls his wife saying, “You go, we go” when they were deciding whether or not to have children. Since having three children, Matthew has been cultivating a closeness with his children that leaves a legacy for years to come. In his book Greenlights, Matthew talks about how he wants his life to read like an unfiltered, unedited version of himself. His whole life has been dedicated to this persona of an actor that everyone is familiar with. Leaving a legacy is all about the raw, unedited moments of our lives; the ones where we’re not perfect and we do make mistakes.

Building a Legacy You Can Be Proud Of with Sal Frisella

Sal Frisella is a husband, father of three children, and the President of 1st Phorm Supplements, which was founded by his brother Andy. He was a Minor League Baseball player who was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals and played for the Single A New Jersey Cardinals. Sal went from a baseball player to selling copiers to medical sales where he worked for Johnson and Johnson as a successful sales agent. After these phases of his life, Sal realized that these jobs were not meant for him. Sal knew that he had to take a chance on himself and live the best possible life ever. Becoming the President of 1stPhorm gave him the best life that he could want. However, Sal's goals weren't always clear. The fear of rejection and fear of the word "no" often held him back during his younger years. Yet, fear didn't stop him from trying. Sal’s success in his life can attest to this because even through doubt and others' negative opinions, he was able to push through and achieve the life he wanted. Sometimes, we are so afraid of rejection that we live with the regret of not trying at all. Take advantage of every single day and live as if it were your last, or you’ll live with regret. The greatest strikeout of life is never stepping up to the plate. In order to live a fulfilling life, we have to embrace fear and live life to the fullest.  For the show notes and exclusive links mentioned in this episode go to    ———— Join the Free Dad Edge Facebook Group at Apply for The Dad Edge Alliance at Watch this interview on YouTube Follow us on Instagram at @thedadedge!

Great Leaders Communicate and Great Communicators Lead with Scott McCarthy

Scott McCarthy has been in the military for over 20 years and is a leadership expert. His leadership journey started when he was young and had the drive to take control of everything that he needed to be planned. Transferring these skills into the Canadian Army, Scott enrolled as a Logistics Officer in 2001 when he was selected to attend the prestigious Royal Military College of Canada. At the age of 24, Scott commanded an Army transport platoon comp comprising of 80 soldiers. At 33, he was selected to command a Logistics squadron of 200 members. As you can see, Scott knows how to compete as a high-performing leader and knows that leadership is a cycle. He understands how to build high-performing powerful teams, how to delegate as a leader to be a force multiplier, and is proficient in setting goals for high-achieving leaders. Today's show is about the simplicity of leadership and communication within marriage. We need to be clear about things that we want as men and husbands while also being servant leaders to our wives and what they need, want, and desire. A lot of men live in two camps when it comes to communication. We either throw ourselves on the sword for the sake of our wives and family, while feeling empty. We end up neglecting ourselves in a noble, selfless way without realizing it. On the other hand, we are extremely selfish and only think about ourselves. The goal of today's show is to explain the common ground between both of those camps where we support our families while also communicating what our needs are as a husband and father.   For the show notes and exclusive links mentioned in this episode go to   ———— Join the Free Dad Edge Facebook Group at Apply for The Dad Edge Alliance at Watch this interview on YouTube Follow us on Instagram at @thedadedge!
