    Former NFL Pro Talks Fatherhood & Being a Role Model to Your Kids with Ken Harvey

    Former NFL Pro Talks Fatherhood & Being a Role Model to Your Kids with Ken Harvey

    Gents, one of the proudest moments we’ll have as dads are when we see our kids all grown up and excited that they’re our children. But we also want our children to grow into people who treat others well and understand how to give and show empathy.
    It’s why I’m excited to talk to today’s guest, Ken Harvey. Ken is a former NFL superstar turned into a true renaissance man. After retiring from professional football, Ken went through a difficult period, but he used that turmoil to grow in every sense.
    He’s now a published author, health advocate, and philanthropist on a mission to help young people become compassionate and philanthropic leaders.
    Even though he’s an accomplished entrepreneur, I love that Ken admits that he still feels lonely sometimes. He doesn’t run away from these emotions; he accepts them as part of who he is. He never stops learning about himself, making him a perfect role model for others.
    In this episode, he shares how he bounced back from depression after retiring from the NFL, the importance of sharing your vulnerabilities, how to raise children that look up to you, and so much more.       
    Ken Harvey Podcast Highlights
    How much should you control your children, and how much should you let them do their thing? What to do if your kid wants to follow in your footsteps and how Ken handled that scenario. How he started working on a children's book with famous Hollywood actor Terry Crews. How bottling up your emotions leads to resentment and misery. How Ken rediscovered his purpose after retiring from the NFL. We need dreamers and thinkers, but we should also surround ourselves with people that are doers. Get the Full Show Notes

    Running Your Family and Business Life Like Clockwork with Mike Michalowicz

    As an entrepreneur, one of the hardest things to do is to walk away from your business. Coincidentally, it’s one of the best moves you can make to allow it to grow.
    Sure, you can run a business around the clock, but at what cost?
    Today’s guest, Mike Michalowicz, is an author and entrepreneur who  regularly takes four-week vacations even though he runs multimillion-dollar businesses. Many of us would shiver at the thought of doing that. Mike found that to be the best decision he had ever made.
     By doing that, Mike was awarded the greatest gift of them all: Time he can now spend with his family and friends.
    He’s been able to travel with his wife more, go on long road trips, and bond with his children. His business didn’t skip a beat and even grew beyond expectations.
    In this episode, we dig into the steps for creating a business that runs itself, hiring A-players that will have each other’s back, lessons he learned from distancing himself from work, and so much more.
    Mike Michalowicz Podcast Highlights
    Find out how Mike can work the least hours he’s worked in his life and still grow his business. Do you feel uneasy at the idea of taking a four-week vacation? That might be a sign to pull the trigger. Learn why each employee in Mike’s business is allowed to take a month-long vacation. Find out why Mike calls himself a “shareholder” instead of an entrepreneur. Realizing he was the biggest bottleneck in his business. Why Mike believes SOPs are often a waste of time for your business. Learn what he does instead! Get the Full Show Notes

    The Story of You & Enneagram Wisdom with Ian Morgan Cron

    Fellas, isn’t it fair to say that most of us create stories for ourselves during childhood that we often perpetuate into adulthood? If left unchecked, those stories may hurt us or our relationships.
    Personally, I’m aware of a few narratives that are still making me question myself as a dad and husband.
    But here’s the good news: we can rewrite those stories and create more empowering ones. We do this by first digging deep into our psyche.
    In today’s episode, I’m excited to be joined by bestselling author and Enneagram pioneer Ian Morgan Cron.
    Ian is someone I hold high respect for. In fact, his work has been instrumental in my own life. He helped me overcome my struggles with alcohol, made me face the uncomfortable emotions buried inside of me, and made a huge difference in my marriage and my ability to be a great dad.
    In this episode, Ian shares why the Enneagram is not just a powerful tool for personal growth, but also a fantastic resource for transforming our personal and professional relationships.
    Ian Cron Podcast Highlights
    Are you living a story that enriches, or cripples you? Our unconscious narratives can sabotage us and our relationships. Learn how to replace them with empowering ones. Find out how the Enneagram can help you be a better dad and husband. Don’t test your children’s personality too early; Learn the optimal age for doing this. Get the Full Show Notes

    Hiring A-Players, Reducing Stress and Enjoying Life with Grant Baldwin

    Hiring A-Players, Reducing Stress and Enjoying Life with Grant Baldwin

    Gentlemen, raise your hand if you’re working towards creating a better life for you and your family.
    Now keep it there if you can honestly say that you regularly take the time to look back with gratitude and appreciate your successes.
    I say we can always do a better job in that department. And today's guest, Grant Baldwin, is a living embodiment of that practice. He's super clear on his goals and runs a highly successful company. But he doesn't stretch out to a point where he can't show up 100% for his family.
    Grant is a keynote speaker and founder of The Speaker Lab, a company that teaches speakers how to find and book gigs. During his 10+ years of experience, he's coached more than 2,000 other people to become better speakers.
    One mind-blowing fact he shared is that in the past year, zero people left his company. Yes, zero! That's pretty incredible.
    Naturally, Grant is someone from whom I learn a lot. He really opened my mind to what's possible when building a business, and I'm glad I can share our discussion with you.
    In today's episode, we dig into his journey to becoming a professional public speaker, conquering the fear of asking people for help, and the hiring process that allows him to entrust his business to his employees without thinking twice.
    Grant Baldwin Podcast Highlights
    Learning from people 1-2 steps ahead of you is the fastest way to grow. At one point, Grant did more than 67 speaking gigs in one year which led him to ask if he wanted a job or a business. Learn to push past your comfort zone, but without pushing too hard. How Grant made multiple seven figures without having a single full-time employee. The biggest reasons why people love to work in Grant’s company. Get the Full Show Notes

    Facing Our Fears and Letting Go of the Past With Stefanos Sifandos

    Facing Our Fears and Letting Go of the Past With Stefanos Sifandos

    Gentlemen, when’s the last time you dove deep into your insecurities, faced them head-on, and talked about them openly? Society doesn’t encourage us to do that as men. Instead, it encourages us to achieve more and do more. 
    So, how can we be better Dads and husbands if we’re unwilling to conquer our inner pain? If we choose to ignore it, we’re giving it the power to resurface in our relationships when we least expect it.
    I’m so thankful to be sharing this conversation with Stefanos Sifandos. He’s a behavioral scientist, relationships expert, trained educator, and the co-founder of Elementum Coaching Institute and the MPowered Brotherhood.
    Stefanos is someone who went through great pain and trauma that drove his relationships to the ground. One day, he stopped running from himself and explored his psyche. That journey made him more present, more loving, and not afraid to share his insecurities with his loved ones.
    I love that Stefanos admits that even with all his training and experience, he still has flaws, just like anyone else. Instead of crippling him, those flaws show him how to be a better man.
    In our conversation, he talks about how we can arrive at the same place by identifying our weak points and being honest with ourselves and our loved ones. And then to dig deeper about openly discussing our vulnerabilities instead of hiding behind them.
    Stefanos Sifandos Podcast Highlights
    If we do the inner work, it can help us to be better men. Nothing stunts your growth more than avoiding pain and conflict. How healing our core wounds makes us more supportive of others. The benefits of having a brotherhood that’s brutally honest with you. What happens when we allow ourselves to fully feel and embrace all negative emotions and let them go. Get the Full Show Notes

    When Violence is the Only Answer with Tim Larkin - Part 2

    When Violence is the Only Answer with Tim Larkin - Part 2

    Protection is not always about using force and we want to do everything to avoid violence. However, to get to that place you have to be confident in handling violent situations.
    But even discussing ‌using violence is discouraged in our society. That’s what makes it only available to predators. Violence is a tool, and if we don’t have the information on how to use it then we can’t protect our families and those we love.
    If you listened to part 1 of our conversation, you’d know that Tim Larkin has that information, and we need to listen. In Part 2, we dig into specific examples of what to do when your only resort is violence and how taking care of the basics, and having routines like checking that the doors are locked goes a long way.
    If you want to learn more about how to protect yourself, and how to protect your family, Tim is the man and I know you’ll be glad you listened to what he has to say.
    Tim Larkin Podcast Highlights - Part 2
    Learning to swim is a life skill, and so is learning to protect ourselves. If you think getting a gun is enough, or that an alarm system will keep you safe, ask yourself why you need those things in the first place. How intruders decide who to target and what you want them to think when looking at your home. Learn how Tim’s clients used what they learned from working with him to improve their businesses.
