    In a time of divides and tension, it is time to build bridges of understanding across our oceans of difference. We need to inspire Men in an engaging way to ‘Be The Lesson in Action’ and strive to become models of possibility for other men.

    Jeff started Higher Unlearning as an online space to explore how ideas of gender and masculinity impact us in everyday life.

    In 2014, Joel Louis decided to merge his love of fatherhood and entrepreneurship into a movement called Startup Dad Headquarters.

Today, Integrator and Co. is a premier digital marketing firm focusing primarily on designing, building, and repairing funnels for established entrepreneurs.

This is what we are all craving to hear

AMAZING. 💛 Jon brings the message and depth in such a way that you don’t just hear his heart, you feel it. This is evolution, this is hope— not just for guys and fathers, but for women like me who want to live that front row life too!

PhoebeMroczek ,

Such an important message

I love listening to this show not because I’m a dad or a parent, of which I’m neither. I enjoy this show because of who Jon is, who his guests are and what this show represents. The world needs more passionate dads leading in the entrepreneurial space. Thank you Jon for everything you do.
