Part of my daily training

I’m not a Dad yet, nor even expecting to be one soon but I listen to this every day to help me prepare for the day I’m lucky enough to become one. Thanks Ryan for the amazing content and life lessons.

keeps me honest

The application of wisdom contained in this podcast has transformed my relationship with my daughter. I am reminded of how I am in a position to exert influence in her life and with that, comes the tremendous responsibility to continue trying to be a good parent. I am often humbled, reminded to check my ego but also inspired because I am better able to see that children don't ask for much - just our presence and to love them as they are.
