    From Soccer Fields to Family Life Lessons in Leadership and Love - Joanna Lohman

    From Soccer Fields to Family Life Lessons in Leadership and Love - Joanna Lohman

    As we continue into Season 5, I'm excited to introduce Joanna Lohman, another fantastic and talented woman, to the podcast!   Jo and I met during our time as speakers when we consulted for Limitless Minds, a company providing impactful work on mindset for corporate teams.  Joanna Lohman is one of the USA's most celebrated soccer stars. Now, she has stepped into the world of parenting with her wife as they embark on a transformative adventure that redefines family leadership.  Not only is Joanna the "authenticity activator," but she is also a global keynote speaker and performance coach, building a new generation of authentic leaders who redefine success.  She is a former professional soccer player and was a member of the United States Women’s National Team. 

    Our latest episode celebrates this journey, weaving a narrative that captures the essence of modern parenting through the lens of sport and the joyous moments of raising their daughter, Luna. Their story isn't just about embracing non-traditional family roles, nurturing a child's individuality, and the communal effort it takes to raise the next generation. 

    During her 16-year professional career, she built a platform for social impact and became the first player in Washington Spirit history to have her jersey retired. She is the author of "Raising Tomorrow's Champions," an extraordinary parenting and life lessons book told through the eyes of the greatest women's soccer players of all time.

    Joanna is also a human rights activist and a Sports Diplomat traveling the world running programs in less developed nations. She has shared her message with organizations worldwide as a performance coach and professional speaker.  She has been featured on national television and radio across the globe, including CNN, Fox 5 DC, and Sirius XM, as a leading voice in sports, equality, inclusion, and leadership.

    We explored many different topics through our conversation, including the power of the 'car ride home' conversation following a child's game can shape their athletic experience and self-esteem. This episode uncovers strategies for fostering a supportive environment where effort and character triumph over scoreboard results. We also discuss the push to empower our daughters to be resilient in the face of societal pressures and the role that seminal family values play in cultivating authenticity and courage. From the sidelines of soccer games to the frontlines of parenting, we share anecdotes and lessons that underscore the importance of guiding children through both triumphs and setbacks.

    Wrapping up our heartfelt dialogue, we turn the spotlight on Joanna's Champion's Mindset course, specifically crafted for young female athletes between the ages of 12 and 16. This course addresses the mental fortitude needed in sports and tackles the challenges that girls face today. Our conversation is a testament to the influence of genuine, powerful mentorship in shaping the lives of young athletes and a nod to the crucial role parents play in this vital process.

    From Bartending Lessons to a breakthrough in Autism as a father with Neil Rogers

    As the sun sets on another day, I reflect on the fatherhood journey — it's more than just a title. It's an adventure that constantly evolves.  A HUGE shoutout goes to Chris Martin for introducing us to our next guest, Neil Rogers.

    Our latest episode features Neil, a seasoned author, and sales and marketing expert, who brings his unique perspective on life, lessons from bartending days, and the intricate dance of parenting a son with autism. Neil's stories vividly depict the joys and challenges threaded through the fabric of a father's life.  Neil's debut book, "Bar Tips," is about everything he learned behind the bar, which he has applied to areas of his life for success.

    Strap in for a heartfelt trek through the realities of raising kids who continually surprise us — from his daughter's leap from tennis to field hockey to Neil's son's astounding comprehension and communication breakthroughs. We discuss the necessity of age-appropriate learning and the importance of assuming competence in our children, leading to revelations of intelligence that leave us in awe.  We learned about his son's passion for broadcasting, and the deepened sibling connection offers a glimpse into the transformative power of patience and understanding in our roles as dads. 

    Our conversation ventures beyond the home front, identifying parallels in teamwork and grace between business and family life. Neil and I tackle the significance of humility, the art of celebrating small victories, and the delicate balance of leading without pressure. 

    This episode is an open invitation for all fathers seeking to nurture a spirit of self-improvement, embrace the beauty of being present, and champion growth within themselves and their households. Join us as we not only share our stories but also extend a hand to fellow dads, encouraging the spread of positive leadership and the building of communities that support one another on this incredible voyage called fatherhood.

    Navigating Fatherhood and Cybersecurity - Dominic Vogel

    Navigating Fatherhood and Cybersecurity - Dominic Vogel

    As fathers, we constantly seek the perfect balance between guarding our digital lives and being present for those irreplaceable family moments. This episode offers a unique perspective on this delicate dance as #cybersecurity expert Dominic Vogel joins us to share his wisdom.   A HUGE shoutout goes to Lauren Jones for introducing Dominic and me to make today's episode possible! 

    Through personal tales, we celebrate the joys and trials of parenting, from the influence of our own fathers to the insights we gain navigating fatherhood ourselves. We also unpack the challenges women face, viewing them through the paternal lens and discussing how these realizations mold the way we raise our next generation to build a more empathetic and resilient society.

    We also discussed the challenges of caring for aging parents and the powerful lessons on resilience that come with it.  I also shared stories about my father's dedication despite struggles with mental health, and the legacy of professional commitment left by him.  Both of Dominic's parents were teachers, which will shed light on the values he and his wife will pass down to their children.  Later in this episode of parenthood, we talked in depth about the values that anchor us, and the importance of emotional resilience, kindness, and passion in crafting the character of our children.

    Finally, the episode wouldn't be complete without diving into the parallels between cybersecurity leadership and being the quarterback of our families. We discuss the vital need for accessible cybersecurity solutions for businesses and how those very principles are crucial when guiding our children. As we wrap up this season, we celebrate the gratitude for connections made, growth experienced, and the shared human journey of fatherhood and leadership that bonds us all. 

    Join Dominic and me for an exploration of these themes, where the personal meets the professional in unexpected and enriching ways.
