    17 Warren Rustand: strategies on building successful families

    17 Warren Rustand: strategies on building successful families

    My next guest, Warren Rustand, is an inspiring leader, a business man and of course a Dad. He has seven children and nineteen grandchildren. This session is truly impactful and to this day I have never met another Dad as clear and focussed as Warren.

    Warren is 77 today he is an ex-NBA player, a White House Fellow and later served as White House Appointments Secretary to the U.S. president. Warren is the past chairman of the World Presidents' Organization and various other impressive things. In business, Warren has listed numerous times, sat on many boards and has led big companies.

    Despite all of this, his true passion is family and this is where his main focus lies.

    The session is a profound share of experience and wisdom by a seasoned Dad and family man with defined priorities and clarity of vision. In this episode Warren takes us through his learnings of as a father and husband. He explains his family mission and vision system and tells us how he managed to create a successful family that shares their lives on a multi-generational farm today.

    Warren gives valuable practical advice on parenting and marriage. He runs us through his value and belief system, clear overarching principles, priorities and how he drives & achieves positive results in his family life.

    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:

    Your relationship with your partner is the foundation for everything. Keep it strong and healthy.
    Ask your child what she wants from life. Start early and do it often.
    If you have a family vision and clear values defined things become a lot easier.
    Apologize, forgive, carry on.
    Teach your kids to work and create a family bank.
    Technology can rupture families.
    Same answer from dad and mom, always.
    It’s critical to have one on one relationship with every child, every week.
    Building consensus around rules in the family is one of the most powerful principles.

    16 'Who' over 'what' with Brandon Dempsey

    16 'Who' over 'what' with Brandon Dempsey

    Brandon Dempsey is a super-passionate Dad of two kids. He had 13 siblings growing up. He’s a serial entrepreneur currently running two companies. Brandon is also an Iron Man, author, speaker, professor, a non-profit leader, an adventurer and he runs a couple of nonprofits.
    All of this is only possible because Brandon his truly highly focussed and has clarity of vision on who he wants to be. He is a gifted strategist who is able to execute.
    In this session Brandon shares his own learnings and his key-strategies on teaching his kids intentionality and being present. We talk about his value-set as a dad and how he himself applies intentionality and accountability to family life. One very powerful concept Brandon shares is the “who” over “what”.
    The most powerful takeaways for me as a Dad where:

    I want to be 100% present at home, phone off, watch off.

    My interaction with strangers has a huge impact on how my children interact with others, too.

    Take intention on how I can become the person I want to become and put guardrails in place where necessary.

    The concept of “building a better who” is more powerful than focusing on “what I want to do”.

    15 “Daddy Saturday”: intentionality & actionable parenting

    15 “Daddy Saturday”: intentionality & actionable parenting

    My next Dad, Justin Batt, is the founder of the “Daddy Saturday” movement and non-profit organisation. Justin’s mission is to impact 10 million fathers in the next 10 years.
    Justin has 4 kids. A daughter of 11 years and three boys 9, 7 and 5. His wife is an entrepreneur and because she started a bridal boutique he found himself alone with his daughter every Saturday when she was two old. Add three more boys to the mix within the next six years and Justin found himself on his own every Saturday with more and more kids over time. He grabbed opportunity and “Daddy Saturday” was born. Saturday is the day entirely devoted to, carefully curated and planned with his kids.
    Other Dads started reaching out or joined in and the rest is history. Justin’s says Dads are not born with a field manual and his aim is to inspire and provide practical applications on how to engage with your kids. His focus is on actionable parenting, intentionality and implementation.
    We talk about his movement, intentionality and structure in the home, the concept of failing and Justin’s, very practical, experience shares one can apply in an instant. Another great concept we explore - he calls it pivoting - parents can apply before difficult conversations happen.
    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:

    I have to be equally aligned with my wife in the things that matter to build a united front.
    Don’t burn all your fuel during the week.
    Don’t be your kids’ hero; be your kids guide and find more guides for the things you’re not good at.
    Excessive use of screen time as parents and fathers rubs off on my kids. Big one for me.

    14 Jamie Mitchell one of the most inspiring waterman alive on his role as a Dad.

    14 Jamie Mitchell one of the most inspiring waterman alive on his role as a Dad.

    My next dad is THE Jamie Mitchell, maybe the most inspiring watermen alive. Jamie is a 10X World Paddle Champion and professional big wave surfer. Jamie Mitchell has created a life from the ocean, one which he wants to be able to pass down to his children. Born in Australia and now living on the islands of Hawai’i with his wife and two daughters, he sees we are on an ecological path that must be changed.
    When we spoke Jamie had just completed his “Seven Crossings Project” that comprised of a 5 day & 170-mile paddle (!) of the Channel Islands in an effort to raise money and promote solutions towards a sustainable planet.
    Jamie told me the reason for his project where his daughters who are 2 and 4 today. He wants to raise awareness for the global climate crisis we are in today. He is right and it makes a lot of sense to support Jamie in his efforts.
    Besides the seven crossings project we chatted about his perspectives as a young dad of two girls, Jamie opened up on some of the things he struggles with as a dad and how he manages to translate his insights and dedication as a professional athlete to Being a Dad.
    We also talked about his own upbringing, his parents and what impact his dad had on himself growing up.
    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:

    It is important to stand for what you believe in and be that role model for your kids.

    If you want your kids to surf at the age of two or three, use goggles.

    Let your children decide, and take the lead on, when they want to learn and at which speed they’d like to progress.

    #12 The beautiful journey of captain Gerard le Suer, “Dad at Sea”

    #12 The beautiful journey of captain Gerard le Suer, “Dad at Sea”

    Gerard le Suer is a very dear friend of mine, he has two sons (8 and 10), and he is an amazing Dad.
    Gerard is a traditional healer (“Sangoma”), business consultant, coach, surfer, entrepreneur, sailor and of course passionate Dad. Together with his family has been sailing around the world for the last 14 months with his wife and their two boys.
    In our session Gerard opens up on his own transformation from being a business consultant travelling alone and being away from the family most of the time to now spending pretty much 24/7 with his family.
    We also talk about their travels as a family and the surrounding challenges, schooling, particularly in the perspective of travelling with kids and leadership in family. Gerard shares some pretty awesome insights on what we can learn from our kids and we talk about the issue with society suggesting you always have to strive for happiness all the time. We also talk about money, happiness and the value of time.
    Towards the end Gerard shares some mind-blowing thoughts on the different maps us and our children operate on in this world and how we perceive our self-decided identities as the reality.
    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:

    Happiness is not relative to ownership but comes out of relationship.

    Money comes at an opportunity cost in the form of time for most of us.

    Happiness is a result, joyfulness is a state.

    Don’t get stuck in a belief just because it’s written down somewhere.

    #11 the uplifting story of Marcus, shot in combat shortly after becoming a first-time dad

    #11 the uplifting story of Marcus, shot in combat shortly after becoming a first-time dad

    In this next session I sit down with Mark and Marcus Haney, both father and son. The session is powerful and interesting.
    Marcus, a Purple Heart U.S. Marine, was shot in Afghanistan during a fire fight in combat shortly after becoming a first time dad himself.
    Mark, Marcus’s dad is a serial entrepreneur who works with and invests in entrepreneurs in the Sacramento area since 2011.
    In this session we talk about how it felt for Mark to send his son off to a warzone and Marcus‘s journey of leaving for war as a strong Marine - without kids - and to come back as a wounded, immobile and totally dependent first-time Dad (Marcus had to undergo 5 surgeries and many months of intense recovery).
    Marcus opens up and shares his story of going through a difficult divorce during that time. Essentially he suddenly found himself having shift gears dramatically and having to fight a very different kind of battle upon his return; it was a long journey for him and, despite the stigma of PTS(D), in the end he was allowed to be a dad to his son Hunter with 50/50 custody. I found his positive attitude and insights very inspirational.
    We also talk about society’s, often contradictory, expectations on men and dads, entrepreneurship, the Haneys’ values as a family and some of the systems they use to keep their bonds strong.
    The session gives deep insights into valuable aspects of fatherhood in difficult situations.
    The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:

    My own issues are not half as bad as I often make them out myself.
    Continuously execute on your important goals without excuses.
    Always move forward, bad things from the past don’t matter.


    Thank you for supporting me by sharing this session with other dads and moms.
    Please also leave me a review, I love your feedback!
