I'm a Husband. Father of six. Wearer of fedoras. Startup co-founder (with an exit). Nonprofit co-founder. I create content about personal growth in life and leadership. This podcast is about my journey while daring greatly. I want to grow, and I want to take others with me.
The fear I felt as I lost it all, and how I recovered
There is one moment in my life when fear washed over me more powerfully than ever before. It was a phone call I will never forget.
I’m an extrovert, locked in a house with five kids, and I love it
If you know me at all, you know I have five (almost six), kids. You know I wear hats and love to be around people. Right now, I’m writing this from my kitchen table, locked in a house with my wife and five kids, and loving it.
Let's Invest Our Downtime
As the world has been on lock-down, I’ve been thinking about our time at home. It’s a burden, but can it also be an opportunity? Sure, it’s an opportunity to spend time with family, most of us got that on day one. But, I wonder, is this an opportunity for more?

Why positive relationships matter, and how to start creating them
In high school, my small business teacher was an enigma. Before I met him, I noticed him. I would see him in the halls and immediately had assumptions about him.

Then one summer, out of the blue, he called me at home. That call changed everything.
“While Daring Greatly” are the words I want to describe my life
I have been thinking of renaming my thought leadership channels (Website, YouTube Channel, Personal Podcast) for a while, but I couldn’t find the right phrase. I wanted something to capture the spirit of how I live daily and the aspiration of how I want my life to unfold. This is what I landed on and why.
