68 Brett Rustand on the family as a team and forming lasting memories
<p>“We have a critical role as parents to create memories for children, and put them in situations and environments where they’re creating memorable experiences.” Brett Rustand on DADicated</p> <p>Brett Rustand is a 45-year-old military veteran and father of five who lives in Tuscon, Arizona. He and his wife both come from large families and have put a lot of effort into melding their individual experiences into their own unified family culture.</p> <p>Brett’s military career completely changed direction upon the birth of his first son in Korea. He decided that, from that moment on, he would dedicate every day of his life to raising his children, and currently works in an industry helping veterans to get jobs.</p> <p>In this session, we discuss working as a team within your family and our role as parents in deliberately creating situations that will form lasting memories for our children. He draws insightful parallels between functioning as a military unit and as a family and emphasizes the importance of showing vulnerability and giving children space to reconcile their own emotions.</p> <p><strong>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were</strong>:</p> <p>- When children see themselves as part of a team with their own responsibilities, it helps them formulate their own identity and feel comfortable within their individual roles as part of a coordinated family unit.</p> <p>- Constant communication routines are essential in maintaining strong and functional relationships both between spouses and as a family.</p> <p>- It’s so easy to forget to take a step back and enjoy how wonderful an experience it is to help a little person develop and become a full-fledged human being. Realizing this and taking the time to do so is essential for our own perspective and parenting experience.</p> <p>Thanks for listening, I hope you’ll enjoy this session!</p> <p><br></p> <p><strong>GUEST SOCIAL MEDIA</strong></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomascullen/"> </a><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/brett-rustand-0b17977/"><u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/brett-rustand-0b17977/</u></a></p> <p>Website:<a href="https://twitter.com/thomascullen"> </a>&nbsp;<a href="https://crestins.com/"><u>https://crestins.com/</u></a></p> <p>Instagram:<a href="https://www.instagram.com/cullentj/?hl=en"> </a><a href="https://www.instagram.com/abitrusty/"><u>https://www.instagram.com/abitrusty/</u></a></p> <p><strong>Philipp Hartmann (host):</strong></p> <p>Web:<a href="http://www.philipp-hartmann.de/"> www.philipp-hartmann.de</a></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2"> https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2</a></p> <p>Dadicated:<a href="https://www.dadicated.com/"> https://www.dadicated.com/</a></p> <p>Instagram:<a href="https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/"> https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/</a></p> <p>Twitter:<a href="https://twitter.com/philipphartmann"> https://twitter.com/philipphartmann</a></p>

67 Ben Richter on navigating the complexities of a blended family
<p>“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to believe in your impossibles.” Ben Richter on DADicated</p> <p>Ben Richter is an amazing man, dad and entrepreneur. He is a father of seven from two marriages who has learned to navigate the complexities of blending different family cultures with multiple children of different ages.</p> <p>Ben has built one of the premier airport logistics companies and has managed to develop effective habits for balancing his work and family life. He emphasizes the importance of being fully present for your children by minimizing phone and work time when you’re together.</p> <p>In this session, we discuss various valuable principles of fatherhood. Ben shares how he implemented “checkmark” systems from a relatively young age to teach children to consciously reflect on their behavior in a tangible and quantifiable way.</p> <p>He explains how building positive communicative habits into our own and in our children’s everyday lives yield extraordinary results - and that difficulties are inevitable, but learning how to respond to them is what really counts.</p> <p>Ben is truly inspirational in terms of his outlook on life and what he has achieved as a father and businessman and I thoroughly enjoyed our session together!</p> <p>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:</p> <p>- Teaching children to exercise gratitude is a powerful way to influence their ability to respond to and to evaluate their daily lives.</p> <p>- Focusing on incremental improvement on your performance as a parent is hugely rewarding, rather than focusing on missteps or regretting mistakes. Immediately focus on being the best version of yourself as soon as you walk in the door to be with your children.</p> <p>- Daily and weekly recaps with a quantifiable checkmark system can engrain lasting positive behaviors in children.</p> <p>I was on the fence about checkmarks for a long time but have to say that Ben’s perspectives made a lot of sense to me and have implemented a few of his ideas at home. So far this works really well.</p> <p>If you find these concepts interesting I recommend you read “The Entitlement Trap: How to Rescue Your Child with a New Family System of Choosing, Earning, and Ownership” by Linda Eyre and Richard Eyre. It goes well together with this podcast and the concepts described are complementary and valuable.</p> <p>Thanks for listening, I hope you’ll enjoy this session!</p> <p><strong>GUEST SOCIAL MEDIA</strong></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomascullen/"> </a><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/benbrichter/"><u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/benbrichter/</u></a></p> <p>Website:<a href="https://twitter.com/thomascullen"> </a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.airportlogistics.org/"><u>www.airportlogistics.org</u></a></p> <p><strong>Philipp Hartmann (host):</strong></p> <p>Web:<a href="http://www.philipp-hartmann.de/"> www.philipp-hartmann.de</a></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2"> https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2</a></p> <p>Dadicated:<a href="https://www.dadicated.com/"> https://www.dadicated.com/</a></p> <p>Instagram:<a href="https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/"> https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/</a></p> <p>Twitter:<a href="https://twitter.com/philipphartmann"> https://twitter.com/philipphartmann</a></p>

66 Darryl Woods Snr and Darryl Woods Jnr on forgiveness and building a relationship despite extraordinary circumstances
<p>“Growing up, people always asked where’s my dad, I would say in prison. But I always knew that that wasn’t the complete story. I wish I could say more to that when they asked me that, because they say your dad’s in prison people make assumptions. Yes, he was in prison, but he played a major part in my life.” - Darryl Woods Jnr on DADicated</p> <p>Darryl Woods Sr. is 49 years old. He spent his 28 years and 11 months as a dad in prison. His son, Darryl Woods Jr., was born one year before his father was incarcerated. Their unique story and relationship they have today despite their difficult situation is nothing but amazing and inspirational.</p> <p>Darryl Sr. grew up in one of the roughest parts of Detroit and was flung into a life of drugs and crime from a very early age. He was incarcerated at 18 years of age and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. He refused to succumb to a victim mentality and went above and beyond to be a present and a positive role model in his son’s life.</p> <p>In this session, we discuss overcoming the difficulties of being a father figure from within prison, turning a hopeless situation into something positive for yourself and others, Darryl shares his experiences on the power of mental persistence and faith in overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles.</p> <p>I am absolutely amazed at both their strength and perseverance, and the wonderful relationship they have built as father and son.</p> <p><strong>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were</strong>:</p> <p>- Even under the most impossible circumstances, mental strength and a positive approach can prevail and yield astounding results in parenting.</p> <p>- We can choose victimhood or the opposite for ourselves.</p> <p>- Being there for your children takes many forms and this might not always just be physical.</p> <p>To book my remote keynote on how we can empower dads in an effort to help facilitate family success please reach out via dadicated.com or simply use my LinkedIn (below).</p> <p>Thanks for listening, if you like this one, please share the session.</p> <p><strong>GUEST SOCIAL MEDIA</strong></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomascullen/"> </a><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/darrylwoods1/"><u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/darrylwoods1/</u></a></p> <p>Website:<a href="https://twitter.com/thomascullen"> </a>&nbsp;<a href="https://www.startsmartlife.com/meet-darryl/"><u>https://www.startsmartlife.com/meet-darryl/</u></a> ; <a href="https://masteryourdaymasteryourlife.com/"><u>https://masteryourdaymasteryourlife.com/</u></a></p> <p>Instagram:<a href="https://www.instagram.com/cullentj/?hl=en"> </a><a href="https://www.instagram.com/darrylwoodsjr/?hl=en"><u>https://www.instagram.com/darrylwoodsjr/?hl=en</u></a></p> <p>Podcast: <a href="https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/master-your-day-master-your-life-darryl-ea0oZicJNw9/"><u>https://www.listennotes.com/podcasts/master-your-day-master-your-life-darryl-ea0oZicJNw9/</u></a></p> <p><strong>Philipp Hartmann (host):</strong></p> <p>Web:<a href="http://www.philipp-hartmann.de/"> www.philipp-hartmann.de</a></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2"> https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2</a></p> <p>Dadicated:<a href="https://www.dadicated.com/"> https://www.dadicated.com/</a></p> <p>Instagram:<a href="https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/"> https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/</a></p> <p>Twitter:<a href="https://twitter.com/philipphartmann"> https://twitter.com/philipphartmann</a></p>

65 Tom Cullen on overcoming devastation and adapting to single parenting
<p>“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is that love is the baseline. The kids will always have my love. They need to know that. They need to feel that. I can be upset, sad, embarrassed, furious, all those things. But there will always be that base love. Of course I’ll always love them no matter what. But the key is that they know and feel that, always.” Tom Cullen on DADicated</p> <p>Tom Cullen is a single dad and entrepreneur who lives with his two daughters who are six and eight in a small, rural town in New York.</p> <p>Tom shares an episode where he had to literally pack up and leave the family home with his two kids within a couple of hours. He has never returned to that home, became a single father and dramatically shifted his approach to both his business and parenting thereafter.</p> <p>We spoke together about how to establish family values, how to run family retreats and family meetings, the importance of constant re-evaluation of our own approach to parenting, goal setting for kids and how to show emotion to our children whilst shielding them from the unnecessary baggage we might be experiencing as adults.</p> <p><strong>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were</strong>:</p> <p>- It’s very possible to turn devastation into empowerment and strength by conscious acts.</p> <p>- Teaching my kids how a new toy works is an incredible opportunity to connect, teach and bond.</p> <p>- Being a good dad is cool. Make it positive and engaging.</p> <p>- Teach goal setting in a playful way early on.</p> <p>To book my remote keynote on how we can empower dads in an effort to help facilitate family success please reach out via <u>dadicated.com</u> or simply use my LinkedIn (below).</p> <p>Thanks for listening, if you like this one, please share the session.</p> <p><strong>GUEST SOCIAL MEDIA</strong></p> <p><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/dinisprazeres/?originalSubdomain=ca">LinkedIn</a>: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomascullen/"><u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomascullen/</u></a></p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/dinisprazeres?lang=en">Twitter</a>: <a href="https://twitter.com/thomascullen"><u>https://twitter.com/thomascullen</u></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.instagram.com/dinisprazeres/?hl=en">Instagram</a>: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/cullentj/?hl=en"><u>https://www.instagram.com/cullentj/?hl=en</u></a></p> <p>Philipp Hartmann (host):</p> <p>Web:<a href="http://www.philipp-hartmann.de/"> <u>www.philipp-hartmann.de</u></a></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2"> <u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2</u></a></p> <p>Dadicated: <a href="https://www.dadicated.com/"><u>https://www.dadicated.com/</u></a></p> <p>Instagram: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/"><u>https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/</u></a></p> <p>Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/philipphartmann"><u>https://twitter.com/philipphartmann</u></a></p>

64 Dave Galbenski on Learning While Teaching
<p><em>“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is being a dad is a journey, not a destination. It’s about progress, not perfection. Be present, and when present, be present." Dave Galbenski on DADicated.com</em></p> <p>Dave Galbenski is an amazing entrepreneur and thought leader in the field of law from Michigan. He is happily married and has one daughter who is just about to graduate from college.</p> <p>Dave has won numerous awards for his business endeavors, he served as the chairman of the Entrepreneur’s Organization and founded the EO Leadership academy. He himself has learned a lot about the value of education and hard work from his father, who was the first in his family to graduate from college and has played a huge role in Dave’s life.</p> <p>In this session, Dave shares his views on how we are both <strong>teaching</strong> <strong>and</strong> <strong>learning</strong> throughout our parenting journeys and that we can never do everything perfect but we can always try to do our best. Dave emphasizes the importance of creating moments in our children’s lives and acting with intention, but also just being there for them when they need us most.</p> <p><strong>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were</strong>:</p> <p>- Moments Matter. Moments are the molecules of our lives and our lives are merely a cumulative outcome of many moments.</p> <p>- Being a parent must be my number one priority. Figuring out how to make everything else fall into place comes second.</p> <p>- When you do your best you don’t have to be perfect.</p> <p>- Turn technology off wherever you can.</p> <p>“It’s our job to do this, this is what we’re here to do. And we won’t know anything, we won’t know everything, we’re gonna do some things that are gonna be imperfect, but we’re gonna give it our best and we’re gonna be intentional about it and we’ll keep learning along the way.”</p> <p>Thanks for listening, if you like this one, please share the session.</p> <p>To book my remote keynote on how we can empower dads in an effort to help facilitate family success please reach out via <u>dadicated.com</u> or simply use my LinkedIn (below).</p> <p><strong>GUEST SOCIAL MEDIA</strong></p> <p><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/dinisprazeres/?originalSubdomain=ca"><u>LinkedIn</u></a>: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidgalbenski/</p> <p><a href="https://www.frameofmindcoaching.com/team-members/dinis-prazeres"><u>Website</u></a>: http://www.lumenlegal.com/</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/dinisprazeres?lang=en"><u>Twitter</u></a>: https://twitter.com/davegalbenski</p> <p><a href="https://www.instagram.com/dinisprazeres/?hl=en"><u>Instagram</u></a>: https://www.instagram.com/davegalbenski/</p> <p><strong>Philipp Hartmann (host):</strong></p> <p>Web:<a href="http://www.philipp-hartmann.de/"> <u>www.philipp-hartmann.de</u></a></p> <p>LinkedIn:<a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2"> <u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2</u></a></p> <p>Dadicated: <a href="https://www.dadicated.com/"><u>https://www.dadicated.com/</u></a></p> <p>Instagram: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/"><u>https://www.instagram.com/beingdad_official/</u></a></p> <p>Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/philipphartmann"><u>https://twitter.com/philipphartmann</u></a></p>

62 Financial literacy for children with Evan Harris
<p>“The best advice I would give myself is to recognize that my children are themselves. They are not a projection of me, nor were they me, or I am them at their current age.” - Evan Harris on DADicated</p> <p>Evan Harris is an entrepreneur who has been married for 25 years and has two sons, 13 and 16. As teenagers, they have already learned the ins and outs of investment and have bought and sold action figures, motorcycles, cars, and even a boat.</p> <p>In this session, we discuss how he separates emotion from money in his relationship with his children and motivates them to work for things they want, value their possessions, and leverage them to achieve more. He has a fascinating approach to gamifying their financial experience and provides valuable insight into the roles of both fathers and external mentors in their lives.</p> <p><strong>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:</strong></p> <p>- It’s essential to provide a training ground where children can fail and recuperate from it at home – you don’t want them to fail for the first time in the real world.</p> <p>- Introducing your children to external figures, or “virtual uncles,” from whom they can learn is a powerful tool in their development.</p> <p>- Giving an allowance doesn’t provide much educational value, but earning money for real work and even having the option of taking out high-interest loans from your parents can be hugely beneficial to children, if managed carefully I would add.</p> <p>I hope you like the session, let me know your thoughts in the reviews and please enjoy!

59 THE Rory Sutherland on not losing your marbles as a dad of twins, establishing trust and the fathers-daughter-bond
<p><em>“I think we make the business of parenting disproportionally difficult - if we assume that everything is within our control.” </em>Rory Sutherland on DADicated.com</p> <p>Rory Sutherland is one of the most influential men in the advertising world, a charismatic speaker and Dad of twins.

44 Mark X Cronin on his son’s Down Syndrome & Spreading Happiness
<p><em>“Stay humble and accept the humility that comes as a parent. There is so much we want to do for our children and there is so much we try to do, and in the end, they have their lives that they will lead and there is only so much we can do.” &nbsp;</em>Mark Cronin, on DADicated.com</p> <p>Mark lives in Long Island and has been married for 38 years. He has 3 boys, Patrick (29), James (26), and John (24), who has down syndrome. Mark and John are the co-founders of John’s Crazy Socks, which was John’s idea.

39 Michel Kripalani on his wife’s brain tumor & superhero families. "Live as if you're dying."
“To a child the word LOVE is spelled T-I-M-E.” Michel Kripalani on DADicated.com This session is one of my favourites and it’s very powerful. Michel Kripalani is the President & CEO of Oceanhouse Media, an app development company, ranked by Inc 500 as one the Fastest Growing Private Companies in 2013. Michel also founded a virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality company. He serves in EO as a regional chair and is a recognised coach in the Marshall Goldsmith 100 group. Michel is in his early 50s, he is married to Karen and has two daughters. In July 2011, his daughters were one and two, Michel’s wife was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor - a turning point in their life. In the session Michel shares his learnings from dealing with the brain tumor and how it strengthened and shapes his family. We discuss his own dad, intentionality and legacy; empowering and educating children and why the tumor came as a gift to them.. Michel has five family values which guide all their decisions: these are: “Family and others first”, “Choose extraordinary”, “Leave breadcrumbs”, “Healthy living” and “Gratitude”. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: “Live as if you’re dying.” "Shredd the ego." I have a responsibility to take care of my health towards my family. You can tell someone's priority by where they spend their time. Easiest value rule for all: if everyone in the world knew I am doing this right now, would I feel comfortable to still do this? If not, don’t do it. “It is so easy in life to live small. Always be asking yourself: am I living a big enough life right now?” Michel Kripalani on DADicated.com Michel Kripalani (guest): Twitter: https://twitter.com/mkripalani Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/michelkripalani/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/michelkripalani/ Email: mk@omapp.com Web: www.MichelKripalani.com Marshall Goldsmith 100 group: https://www.marshallgoldsmith.com/Welcome Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: www.philipp-hartmann.de LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2

38 True masculinity & and authentic fathering with Craig Wilkinson aka the “Dad Coach”
“My best advice to myself as a dad is to realise how valuable I am to my children and how much my presence is needed in their lives and just be present and engaged.” Craig Wilkinson on DADicated.com Craig Wilkinson from South Africa is a powerful dad who has truly applied himself to his cause of being a dad and empowering other fathers. Craig has two kids (24 and 26), is a bestselling author, award winning social entrepreneur, sought after inspirational speaker and calls himself and is the “Dad Coach”. He is passionate about equipping men to be great fathers and leaders. Craig is the founder of Father a Nation (FAN), an NPO which restores men to true masculinity and authentic fatherhood. He believes that if we can heal men we can heal the world. Craig shares his own journey as a dad and his parenting views. We discuss his divorce, what is means to be a man in todays world and how we can empower our sons and daugthers. Craig explains how woundedness manifests in children when there is no father figure around, we talk about Craig’s work sibling-led families in the townships, what surrogate fathers are and our own impact as men on other men around us. “It’s much easier to bring up a healthy child than to heal a broken adult.” Craig Wilkinson on DADicated.com The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Pursue your daughters heart and set the standard this way. Make sure your sons know they are real men and have what it takes. Constant communication is key. The four lies of masculinity are sex, power, money and big boys don’t cry As a male use the strength you were given well. It’s about serving. “Sometimes the poorest man leaves behind the most valuable legacy because it’s not what you leave behind for someone but all about what you leave in someone.” Craig Wilkinson on DADicated.com Craig Wilkinson (guest): Craig on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/craig-wilkinson Craig’s Website: http://craigwilkinson.co.za/ Dad Coach: https://dadcoachonline.com/ Craig on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dadcoach Craig’s facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DadCoachCraig Books: Craig’s book: http://thedadbook.co.za/ Raising Boys (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/204098.Raising_Boys) by Steve Biddulph The Boy Crisis (https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/34196216-the-boy-crisis) by Dr. Warren Farrel Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: www.philipp-hartmann.de LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/philipphartmann2

37 Perspectives of an outlier dad. Arel Moodie’s journey from welfare to successful entrepreneur
Arel Moodie is a Jewish person of colour (white mom and a black dad) who grew up in the projects in New York witnessing gang violence and fatherlessness all around him. Arel has built a million-dollar company and made Inc. Magazine’s “30 under 30” list. President Obama has personally acknowledged him for his work. Arel has two boys (7 and 5).

Arel talks about playful parenting, owning emotions, non-actions, the importance of language, bonding and the power of routines. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: If nothing else, you can control effort Seperate your own trauma from your parenting Teach in peaceful moments. Do roughhousing dads! Appreciation dinner rounds with the family - I love this! Maybe the most valuable learning: mom first, kids second. Don’t become two adults who are merely co-living and co-parenting.

36 A Christian “Arab Dad’s” perspective with Dr. Suhail Jouaneh from Jordan
<p><em>“By profession I am a dental surgeon by profession I am a mental surgeon.”</em> Suhail Jouaneh on DADicated.com</p> <p>Dr. Suhail Jouaneh is a leader, coach and businessman from Amman in Jordan. He is a business facilitator and executive coach having organized thousands of workshops and trained more than 20,000 people from over forty countries. Suhail is well spoken, very witty and positive and the session is fun and very interesting.</p> <p>Suhail is married to his wife Abeer and has two daughters Elisabeth 21, Christina 14. Suhail is Christian in a country where 98% of the population is muslim. He spent seven years in France during his studies and so I was very interested to hear his perspective as a “Arab Dad” with a Western understanding and mindset. Suhail did not disappoint.</p> <p>In the session Suhail shares his own journey as a father; we discuss his family principles and values, Suhail contrasts Western family culture and Jordanian family customs, the role of daughters in Jordan and “Arab Dads” as Suhail coins it. Suhail explains how he empowers his daughters in a country where arranged marriage still exists and sons are often preferred over daughters. He also tells us how he applies his coaching techniques to family.</p> <p><u>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:</u></p> <ol> <li>Investing in the relationship early is so important.</li> <li>Where required, talk to your daughters in the role of a male, not just as a dad.</li> <li>Don’t be distant or harsh, especially with your wife and daughters.</li> <li>Always be watchful and amend mistakes instantly.<br> </li> </ol> <p><em>“Whenever our daughters lie, they admit that they lie. They don’t know how to lie.”</em> &nbsp;Suhail Jouaneh on DADicated.com</p> <p>If you love this session, please share it.

34 Rorke Denver: Dad of two, U.S. Navy SEALs Officer & Trainer, assault team leader with 200+ combat missions
<p><em>"If you avoid pain you’re not inoculated for when hard things happen.” </em>Rorke Denver on DADicated.com</p> <p>Commander Rorke Denver is a highly decorated assault team leader with over 200 combat missions as a NAVY Seal. Rorke has run every phase of training for the U.S. Navy SEALs and led special-forces missions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and other international hot spots. As officer in charge of BRAVO Platoon of SEAL Team THREE in Iraq, he was part of the most combat-heavy deployments of any regular SEAL team since Vietnam.</p> <p>Rorke has a Master in Global Business Leadership and is the founder and CEO of EVER ONWARD, a leadership and human performance brand.</p> <p>As a Dad Rorke is married and has two daughters. My feeling was that Rorke lives in a permanent state of heightened intensity and is also able to live single purposefully. The session is very interesting, fun and I found it very motivational.</p> <p>We talk about self-discipline, prepping kids for hard times and how parents who are being deployed manage to transition between family life and combat situations. Rorke shares his standpoints and values as a Dad and talks about his own father and upbringing. He also also shares lessons from the battlefield and SEALS training and how those are applicable for families. We talk about general parenting principles, how to keep your relationship strong and healthy, the importance of own pursuits, goal setting, operating at your highest point of contribution and holding your kids accountable whilst still supporting them. Not surprisingly Rorke is big on tangible over digital experiences in family.</p> <p>“The fact that my daughters have learned how to shoot a gun, make a fire and play rough has helped them become resilient, self-reliant people.” Rorke Denver on DADicated.com</p> <p><u>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:</u></p> <ol> <li>Trust yourself</li> <li>Share your failures more than your successes with your kids and why</li> <li>Keep working towards an end-state</li> <li>Do hard things and do not avoid suffering and pain.</li> <li>Build resilient, confident children</li> <li>Never leave a question unanswered.</li> <li>Let them be kids as long as they can</li> <li>As a father of daughters the example I set as a man is a fundamental gift for their future.</li> </ol> <p>“Basics for my kids: Respect for yourself and other people.

33 Arthur Gillis: learnings from a blended family by a seasoned entrepreneur dad & grandad
“As fathers we sometimes have to be benevolent dictators, even if our children are grown-ups, they are still children.” Arthur Gillis on dadicated.com If this podcast helps you being a better parent, please consider leaving a review and share it with another parent or two. I truly love getting feedback from you, in fact it makes my day! Arthur Gillis is married and lives in South Africa. He is a titan in the hospitality industry, maybe the most successful in Africa. He is a serial hotelier and proud dad of five. Three of those kids are his biological children and two came with the second marriage. However Arthur and his wife took the line of treating all kids as their own kids. All five are married and Arthur is a grandfather of three, soon four children. Arthur speaks from the heart and his experience shares are powerful & inspiring.  As entrepreneur and CEO Arthur grew the Protea Hotels Group from the initial four hotels to the leading hotel operating company in Africa consisting of 128 hotels in 19 countries with 16.000 employees. After 36 years, in 2014, Arthur facilitated the sale of Protea Hotels’ three brands and management company to Marriott International, Inc.. In our session Arthur shares his own journey of being a dad, a granddad, an entrepreneur and how he manages to blend the many family streams that make up his own family today. Arthur shares some amazing insights and very practical experience shares on building a successful family. Some of the shares are on positive conflict, family forum and family counsel, Arthur's estate planning, forging bonds with children, fathering the fatherlessness, treating children appropriately instead of equally, money and its energy, turning disadvantages into advantages. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Listen more to other Dads who have walked this path before. Be kinder to yourself. If you have no choice at least make the experience beautiful. In a blended family: never side with blood, ever. Show your children your vulnerability. It’s a strength and not a weakness. Find a project, like restoring a car or anything really, to do together with your boys to forge bonds. Have a psychologist or independent third party on call to act as family counselor. Quality time has to equate quantity time. Beautiful routine for all parents: “What made you glad what made you sad? What do you want to do tomorrow and what do you want to do right now? This is your time, you chose.” 45 minutes exclusive one on one time with your child. Please support www.togetherforcapetown.com. Our aim is to raise enough money for 3.000.000 meals for kids in Cape Town’s townships.

32 Dr. Mark Schillinger on boys to men initiation and how to be happier, healthier and holier
“As a dad I just didn’t want to go through the rest of my life not being whole with my son.” Dr. Mark Schillinger on DADicated.com  This is one of my favourite sessions so far.  Dr. Mark Schillinger is 67 years of age, has 2 kids, one son and one daughter and is based north of San Francisco. He refers to his family setup as “successful divorced family”. Mark is a physician, chiropractor, entrepreneur, community leader and awesome dad. Mark coaches parents and mentors young men on how to have more caring and cooperative relationships. As a neuroscientist he also specialises in stressmanagent teaching doctors how to calm down their patients - something we all can use in family life I guess.  Mark’s life’s purpose is to help people achieve their true potential by mentoring them to discover their own core values and transform those values into positive beliefs and productive behaviors. 20 years ago Mark realised that his relationship with his teenage son was failing and started a programme called the Young Mens’ Ultimate Weekend. A weekend that involves other men and aims to initiate boys into manhood. The aim is to help them to get rid of all their past pain, hurt and disappointment and move on to be able to fulfil their full potential of their life going forward.  Mark teaches us relaxation techniques, how to empower boys, covers mentorship and how not to be emotionally distant. Mark shares powerful insights from his decades -long work with teenagers and families. We dive into how he managed to reconnect to his teenage son himself, how he managed to achieve a healthy relationship with his wife after their divorce and his own journey as a dad.  The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:  As a father find a mentor.  Be willing to relax and learn how to relax quickly. Stay calm and kind.  The powerful concept of both, and… two things can be true at the same time. For instance: you can be upset and collect yourself.  Don’t make your kids wrong but find them right.  If you can, find rites of passages to initiate your sons as men.  Working with virtues and values is powerful.  Take care of yourself first so you can take care of the family.  If this podcast helps you be a better parent, please consider leaving a review and share it with another parent or two.

31 Coley Harris left his 2 year old son Ahmarr David behind to serve a 16 year sentence
<p>In 1994 Coley Harris went to prison to serve a 16 year sentence; he left behind his 2 year old son Ahmarr Melton. The two were separated for 14 years and have since both been working on their relationship. Today both of them work with youth from underserved communities focussing on the issue of father absence due to incarceration. The session is very powerful and important.</p> <p>Coley is 47, he is married, a father and grandfather. Coley shares his story of ending up in prison after a series of bad decisions in an environment of street culture surrounding drug dealing, drug usage and violence.

30 Jason Goldberg on the role of fathering shaped by a biblical world view
<p>Jason is a devout Christian, he is married and has one son. Jason is one of the best business strategists I know, he is also a successful venture capitalist, leader and entrepreneur. In business his mission is to create jobs and impact by scaling impactful firms. In the family sense his mission is to be living in the manifest presence of God so that that is palpable for his son.</p> <p>Jason’s Dad left when he was ten and he grew up without a dad, raised by a single-mom with two sisters in a family with very little money. Jason and his Dad only connected two decades later and Jason opens up about his own healing journey stemming from having an absent father and thus not growing up emotionally whole.</p> <p>It is powerful to hear Jason talk on how he found his Faith and how this has transformed himself, his life and his view on family in such a radical way. He shares how he has recently learnt to be a man and what being a Dad in the presence of God means for him and how this shapes his own life and his family life. When his son Elai was three he devoted a year to being a great father in terms of reading, praying and thinking. He refers to this as a faith driven revelation for him.</p> <p>Jason finishes the session with powerful book recommendations on family, religion and becoming a better dad (links below).</p> <p><u>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:</u></p> <ol> <li>Switch on as a Dad. You need to choose this.<br> </li> <li>An interesting concept Jason shares: Children first and foremost must feel safe with you, after that they must feel unconditionally loved, after that they must feel capable and after that they must feel responsible.<br> </li> <li>Behaviour issues can sometimes be solved by healing the gut.<br> </li> <li>Parenting with a higher purpose or energy in mind in beneficial for yourself and your children.<br> </li> <li>Spending dedicated time on learning how to become a better father is powerful.<br> </li> </ol> <p>If dadicated.com helps you being a better parent, please consider leaving a review.

29 Sander Raeijmaekers a Dad’s view of postnatal depression (PPD)
Sander is a dear friend of mine. He is 41 years old and has one daughter together with his partner Babiche. Sander has always been a big inspiration for me as a dad. His wife struggled with postnatal depression after Lou was born and it was very valuable for me to hear first hand how they managed that situation. Sander is a humble, warm man with a big heart. He has an awesome family and both our families have been friends for many years. We obviously speak about how his partner’s postpartum depression impacted Sander and Babiche as a couple, what it is and what he learned from the situation. We also cover each of our birth experiences and how to empower dads during birth, breastfeeding, not sleeping as young parents, unmet expectations and how to deal with that in a relationship. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Step up as a Dad. This is a decision you choose for yourself. Go to all the checkups be there for the Birth and make sure that you are being involved. Ask questions and apply yourself. Have a Doula present during Birth. Be flexible and do not hold on to expectations. Dads are able to empower their children by not minding but minding them at the same time. Lastly please do check out togetherforcapetown.com. Our aim is to provide 3.000.000 meals to children in Cape Town’s townships before the year is out and since our start three weeks ago we were able to raise 55.000 meals so far.

28 Eric Fox on his daughter’s coma & his wife’s cancer
“You never really know how much people are willing to do or are prepared or want to help until it’s needed.” Eric Fox on DADicated.com (Eric’s daughter went through a long coma, wasn’t breathing on her own for the first five weeks and she had a 3% chance of survival). Eric Fox is a stay-at-home Dad of two, married since 1999, living in Dubai. In 2015 his wife Krysta was diagnosed with breast cancer but has now recovered. In November 2017, right after Krysta’s chemo, Chloe, his daughter, was involved in a near fatal road accident resulting in a coma for weeks on end with a 3% chance of living. Luckily she is well on the way to recovery. In our session Eric opens up about the strain the situation brought to their marriage and how they managed to turn their relationship around. Eric shares how he managed to deal with the feelings and fears throughout his wife’s and daughter’s fight for recovery. We talk about his situation as a stay-at-home dad, how the family deals with all of this. Eric also shares how Matthew, his son, dealt with his sister’s accident at the time. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Always oblige when your kids want to spend time, you can’t get that opportunity back. Make sure your children understand that they can never disappoint you. No matter what happens. Check-in on the best, worst and funniest every night over dinner with everyone. Schedule important conversations with your wife and don’t try them when you’re exhausted or the kids are screaming. If your friends need your help, be the first to raise your hand. “Bring clarity to discussions. Say what it is that you want to say and also work out how you want to receive information.“ On a personal note: South Africa’s Covid-19 lockdown has brought the economy near collapse and people are starving. If you, as many, love Cape Town and its people, please do check out our initiative www.togetherforcapetown.com and donate. Our aim is to provide 3.000.000 meals to children in Cape Town’s townships before the year is out. Thank you!

27 Conrad (“Caveman”) Stoltz: 3x Visualisation-Ninja DAD, 7x World Champion, 2x Olympian athlete and multiple African Champion
“The hardest thing I have ever tried to do was to truly, truly emotionally connect.” Conrad Stoltz, 7x world champion, 2x Olympian Athlete, 5x African Champion, 5 Times South African Champion - DAD of three! Conrad Stolz, aka the “Caveman” is an exceptional triathlete from South Africa. He’s a powerful man and humble dad of three kids, Sina 4.5, Zander 2.5 and Zoe 5 months. In my mind Conrad is the definition of hardcore. He is a 7x Cross Triathlon World Champion, 10x XTERRA USA Series champion, 2x Olympian athlete and so many more amazing results… The first ten years of his career he lived hand to mouth, sleeping on park benches or in police stations as he came straight out of Apartheid and without a sponsor he actually couldn’t afford to compete on that level globally. Conrad told me he had to win to be able to eat! He says his own Dad, an Afrikaans cattle Farmer and proud, hard man, was a true icon for him and ultimately he learned the essential life-lessons for his success from his father. Through visualisation Conrad is able to disassociate his mind from physical pain and enter flow or peak state during competition. In the session we explore how this ability can be applied to being a parent. Conrad opens up about his own upbringing, his personal fears and struggles as a dad, athlete and husband and his journey and struggles of retirement from competing after 34 years when his child was born and becoming an entrepreneur The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Being a Dad is an endurance sport all by itself. Have more patience. Be vulnerable, show emotion. Nobody told us it’s going to be hard. Prepare outcomes. Visualise. Have a pre-prepared outcome of what you want to happen for any given situation. You have to also visualise the failure. What you put in is what you get out: Perseverance, Suffering, Connecting with people. “If you follow your passions it’s very easy to commit, suffer and succeed.” Teachable moments: during play if a teachable moment arises, stop everything (in a playful way), explain what you need to explain, carry on playing. Another amazing quote from the Caveman: “Racing is even harder if you’re being chased.” On a final note: many of you know that I am based in Cape Town and we are currently in one of the hardest lock-downs globally. The result of the lockdown is that the economy has collapsed and COVID-19 has brought hunger and, sadly in some cases, violence. Together we have started an initiative called www.togetherforcapetown.com. Our aim is to raise enough money for 3.000.000 meals for underprivileged kids before the year is out.

26 Being a single dad, step dad & entrepreneur with Todd Palmer
<p><em><strong>“First I was a boy raising a baby. Then I was a man raising a boy on my own while raising and growing a business. Sometimes that overlap was great, sometimes it was quite messy.” Todd Palmer, entrepreneur, single-parent dad and now also step-dad, on dadicateddotcom.</strong></em>&nbsp;</p> <p>Todd Palmer became a single-parent at the age of 24 in a time where chances for getting custody for fathers was around 1% in his hometown Detroit, Michigan. Having brought up his son as a single dad, today, in his fifties, Todd has become a step-father to a ten year old girl. He filed for personal bankruptcy at the age of 25 as he had spent all his money on the custody court case. He started his business at 28 and went from struggling entrepreneur on the brink of bankruptcy with $600,000 debt to making the INC 5000 as one of America’s fastest-growing companies 6 times.&nbsp;</p> <p>Todd opens up about his journey as a single parent, a dad and step-dad, male bonding between father and son, his own experiences with divorce, bringing up a child on his own and how he was able to overcome imposter syndrome for himself.&nbsp;</p> <p>The session is fun and it’s meaningful on many levels. Todd’s shares are powerful and it’s interesting to hear him opening up as a father and businessman.&nbsp;</p> <p>The most powerful takeaways for me a a dad where:&nbsp;</p> <p>There’s no perfection in parenting and therefore failure doesn’t exist if we allow failure to be a learning opportunity.&nbsp;</p> <p>Have self-compassion and kindness for yourself.&nbsp;</p> <p>“ATV (authenticity, transparency, vulnerability) with spouses and children.”&nbsp;</p> <p>Show up and be fully present.&nbsp;</p> <p>Have tenacity and resilience.&nbsp;</p> <p>Memories over money.&nbsp;</p> <p>Set aside self-care time every day.&nbsp;</p> <p>Have genuine, authentic conversations.</p>

25 Dr. Michael Trautmann’s fatherhood journey & one life changing day and night with his own Dad
Michael Trautmann is a strong man with the ability to inspire and lead people to success. He is a serial-founder, entrepreneur and Dad who has two sons, Oskar and Moritz, 21 and 24.  The session is meaningful, powerful and moving and we both had a good cry together towards the end. Michael truly leads with vulnerability as he shares deep personal experiences about his own journey as a father, husband and his relationship with his own Dad who died of cancer last year. We talk about our roles as entrepreneurs and businessmen. Michael shares his own learnings and insights gained from business in relation to being a Dad, what he learned from the Hoffmann process and one very powerful, life changing day and night he experienced with his father. Michael is one of the most important and successful heads in the German advertising landscape (global ex-CMO Audi, ex-MD of Springer & Jacobi, founder of kempertrautmann and founder of thjnk). Michael also co-founded upsolut Sports which initiated and runs HYROX. Together with Christoph Magnussen, he runs one of Germany’s leading podcasts #OnTheWayToNewWork. They kindly invited me towards the end of last year (link below). The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Quality over quantity of time. Michael and his father once where gifted a unique 8 hours together that changed his life and that of his children forever. What if we can look out for those opportunities with our kids? Allow myself to reflect back and improve. This implies that I have to accept where I made mistakes. Lead with vulnerability. Time together is bonding. Values form the foundation. As always I am hoping that these sessions do help you in your journey as a parent. If they do, please do share this with others and leave a review. Highly appreciated.

24 David Bacon was born a great uncle (in case you are trying to figure that one out: his sister was already a grandmother when he was born)
<p>As we do this session I am in lockdown with four three year olds and two four and a half year olds, so times are interesting.</p> <p>Dave Bacon is an amazing man and Dad. Dave’s thoughts about Being a Dad are remarkable and his own story is remarkable as well - for instance each his dad, himself and his son were all born in a different century.</p> <p>Dave and his wife Heather have 3 children who are 11 and 7 - he also has twins. Dave is the Founder &amp; CEO of Better With Bacon, recognised as ‘Best Places to Work’, ‘Top 50 Colorado Companies to Watch’ and he has been on the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies three times. He is an avid skier and very active and holds numerous board positions in altruistic and charity causes.</p> <p>Dave’s father, Ernst Bacon, was a famous composer who had 6 children, 11 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild. Dave was born in 1973. At that time his dad was 45 years his mom’s senior. He was born a great uncle because his sister was already a grandma and of course his niece was older than him.</p> <p>The session is really fun and beautiful. Dave opens up on his own upbringing and all the different perspectives and viewpoints he grew up with in such a unique family setting - think about a 85 trying to parent a ten year old. The overarching theme of his upbringing was always the arts and the beauty of all things.</p> <p>We cover the amazing gift Covid has given us - which is having more time together as families and we talk about how we each handle COVID as families.</p> <p>Dave shares some amazing tips on how he manages to improve his relationship with his children and I have to say he seems like an extraordinary human. For instance the one time his 8 year old had the idea of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro for a fundraiser for a local school, two years later they did just that - and raised USD 103.000. A simple idea became something amazing.</p> <p>Dave also shares how his kids and the family deal with death, how he tried to solidify his kids' impact on himself and how the arts and music impacts their lives on a daily basis.</p> <p><u>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where:</u></p> <ol> <li>Mandate your children to participate in the arts.<br> </li> <li>Keep a field note for each child, don’t date the entries, give it to them later in life. This way they will know the impact they had on you and the world around them in a powerful way.<br> </li> <li>Show your vulnerability to your kids. Make sure they understand you, too make mistakes, all the time.<br> </li> <li>1.000.000 seconds are 11 days, are 31 years. Our children are multiple time billionaires which is a lovely concept!<br> </li> <li>Kids must know that their ideas matter and also that their ideas are actionable.<br> </li> <li>Allowing my kids ideas into my life is a great excuse to celebrate our relationship.<br> </li> <li>Get everybody to write down three things they are grateful for and read it out over dinner.<br> </li> </ol>

23 Dr. Malik Mohammed a journey from homeless child to “Scholar Warrior Dad” on a mission is to improving the human condition
This next session truly left me in awe. It is powerful and inspirational. Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad is a father, husband, educator, transformational leader, entrepreneur and author. He has been married to Christina for 25 years and became a dad at the young age of 20, a second time at 25. Interestingly his step-father and his wife’s father stay with them as well. Malik’s story really is powerful and amazing. Born into a womb of trauma, Malik’s father died during his mother’s pregnancy. He was homeless from five well into his teenage years and spent quite some time in juvenile correction facilities. Malik describes this period as a time of transition, instability and dysfunction - yet he shares amazing insights from that time that helped him as a Dad later in life. Today he has a BA in International Affairs, an MA in Educational Leadership and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership. Always working with the underserved in urban and rural areas, he has focused on the development of boys to men, establishing a tutelage for oppressed youth, and building progressive organizations. He is the founder and CEO of Akoben LLC and Transforming Lives Inc. so he is in the fields of education and mental health. Malik trains people on how to develop restorative relationships with adults and children to bring positive transformation. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: We have to be truth-tellers. Build resilience and perseverance in our children to create an inner fortitude and strength. Don't do things for them or to them, do things with them. Be a man of honour and work hard. It’s all about impact. Explain to your children how their behaviour or not meeting their responsibilities makes you feel. Make sure you stand in your power of moral authority. Model a manifestation of your values to your children. It is mission critical that we make sure the world sees our children through the same beautiful lens that we see them through. We have to fight hard for this! Fathers of boys cannot solely raise their sons. As fathers we have a responsibility to reach many and give them the opportunity to show other boys what fatherhood looks like. Allow myself to be changed by my children as I change them. If you feel that podcasts help and inspire you to be a better parent I am asking you to share two podcasts you love with two dads or moms you love today. Enjoy the session!

22 Marc Rousso on being a dad during personal bankruptcy
Marc Rousso has two children; his shares are uplifting and practical and they are very important as we are stuck in a downturn economy caused by the explosive global deceleration we are currently experiencing. Marc built his business from nothing to a decent property company. As Marc and his wife had their first child, Lehman Brothers hit, he went bankrupt, lost his business and was left with $2.500.000 personal debt. Without a paycheck for five years Marc doubled down a new start, his family and being a Dad. It’s amazing to hear how Marc managed to separate the huge anxiety he felt during this time and his role as being a Dad. The session is really powerful and Marc shares beautiful and important insights and tips. Marc wants to create a life without regrets and be the best dad he can be -  regardless of the situation. This was amplified by the sudden death of a dear friend who told him he wished he had spent more time with his kids.Having felt more of a nuisance to his father Marc is trying to be the dad he never had. As a family man and entrepreneur Marc has driven a lot of intentional choices such as creating a family friendly business or ritualising routines that have worked for him and his children. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: When times are tough, there is always that one part of life I can control: being a good dad. A successful life - and being a good dad for that matter - stems from the ability to wake up the next day and be a better version of yourself. Life has a time expiration. Learn to live a life without regret. Every night before bed they play GIN - a card game. For 15 minutes. An amazing way to connect on an ongoing basis. Carve out a dedicated stretch of intentional time with the kids every day where you are present and engaged. If you feel that podcasts help and inspire you to be a better parent I am asking you to share two podcasts you love with two dads or moms you love today. Enjoy the session!  #bankrupcy #dads #entrepreneurship #fatherhood #lifeafterbankrupcy #familygoals

21 Dr. David Zelman: parenting & living in the present for the future
Dr. David Zelman is 72 years old, married for 40 years, three children and two grandchildren. David has been doing “Transcendental Meditation” for 50 years. Through his work in the last four decades David has achieved enlightenment. David is a behavioural psychologist and received his PhD back in 1976. He has done extensive work with families and children. David has coached thousands of people nationally and internationally, including billionaires, royalty, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, professional athletes, and performers. David is the founder and CEO of Transitions Institute in Dallas, Texas. His process guides people on a powerful journey of self-discovery and freedom. David feels that individuals are most effective when their intentions and actions are aligned toward a future they deeply desire, and to which they make a deliberate commitment. David says clarity, purpose, and self-expression need to become the guiding principles for living happily and living successfully. In this session we talk about the Transitions model, powerful concepts of parenting and communicating with our children. David shares valuable insights from his forty years of working with people and particularly families and children. The session was truly powerful and there are so many valuable and amazing, positive learnings. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: To be a better Dad I have to be a better self. Live in the present but with a future mindset. Nothing I’ve ever accomplished in my life did I do on my own. Look for opportunities to celebrate your relationship with your kids. My actions and feelings are perfectly correlated to whatever my internal conversations are. Promote a growth mindset in your kids. Kids need to have a say. Teach them to be other-oriented. The capacity to communicate with others is fundamental to their success in life. So is mine. Be present to their being present. Be conscious of their awareness. Be conscious of who I am as a provider in my different roles. Listen, listen, listen to them and their world around them. Don’t hurt them, guilt them or make them afraid of me. Don’t make them choose sides. Please do get involved in our mission to facilitate family success. If you feel that podcasts help and inspire you to be a better parent I am asking you to share two podcasts you love with two dads or moms you love today. Enjoy the session!

20 Balancing life in business, family & personal growth (and dealing with an eight year old daughter) with Jeremy Ames
Jeremy Ames is 42, married and has 2 kids. He lives in Idaho in the U.S. and is a serial entrepreneur. Jeremy’s current business, Guidant Financial, has helped over 18.000 entrepreneurs put more than 4 billion USD to work, mainly in small businesses or franchises. In 2007, Jeremy was honored as the National Young Entrepreneur of the Year by the Small Business Administration. I like this session a lot because it’s mainly just an honest chat between two dads. Jeremy says his main challenge as a dad is balancing his time to feed personal growth, his desire to build businesses and spend quality one-on-one time with his friends and family. I was intrigued to hear his strategies and experience shares coming from such a high-paced, driven individual. Jeremy is a brave man at heart and we had a powerful and valuable conversation about love, family, relationship and self. Jeremy opens up about his own family challenges and how he manages to keep his marriage healthy. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Do not let your own ego and sense of validation get tied up in how others perceive your kids. Do an annual trip with only one of the kids and yourself - kids decide where to go. It’s difficult to engage with kids over activities outside of your own bias. Keeping appointments is a superpower. Lastly: please do get involved in our mission to facilitate family success: share two podcasts - any podcasts - that inspire you to be a better parent with two parents you love today. Enjoy this session! #dad #dads #entrepreneurship #entrepeurdad #fatherhood #parenting #relationship #supportsystem #father

19 Warren Farrell the father of the men's movement & author of “The Boy Crisis”
Warren Thomas Farrell is 77. He is an American educator, activist and author of seven books on men's and women's issues. All of his books are related to men's and women's studies, including his March 2018 publication “The Boy Crisis”. Farrell initially came to prominence in the 1970s as a supporter of second wave feminism; he served on the New York City Board of the National Organization for Women (NOW). Although today he is generally considered "the father of the men's movement" he advocates for neither a men’s nor a women’s movement but a gender liberation movement. Warren chairs the Coalition to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men amongst other things to influence change. In the session Warren opens up about his own family set-up and his experiences and challenges as a step-dad of 2 girls. His one daughter was adopted by his wife before they got together and the other daughter is a biological child from his wife and her previous partner. Warren also shares amazing insights and learnings from a few decades of research. We talk about adoption, mom-style parenting and dad-style parenting and the effects, father involvement - or the lack thereof - and the consequences. Fir instance: Warren told me the single biggest predictor of suicide for boys is a lack of father involvement. Another topic he elaborates on is how much can be gained simply by making sure dad and mom are both aware and honour the contribution dads make by means their intuitive actions. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Structured family dinner nights help everybody in the family feeling heard and fostering positive ties. Roughhousing leads to children being more empathetic and understand the difference between assertiveness and aggression - so keep on going dads. The single biggest predictor of success is postponed gratification “Moms can’t hear what dads don’t say.” Please do get involved in our mission to facilitate family success by sharing any two parenting two parenting podcasts that have inspired you with with two dads or moms you love.

18 Alan Haefele on being a dad of a child with autism
Alan Haefele is an entrepreneur from South Africa. He has been married to Christy for 14 years and together they have four children. Three boys and one baby girl. Alans oldest son has autism. Alan’s shares, explanations and insights were truly valuable and personally I learnt a lot from his experience shares. Alan takes us through his own journey as a dad, his initial denial phase, his learnings, his son’s symptoms and the stigma attached to autism. I love Alan’s practical advice on the topic and it is obvious that he has gone through some healthy introspection and applies himself with this. Alan shares how the autism affects his relationship and the rest of the family and how they deal with it as a family. In short Alan opens up and allows us a beautiful insight into a family affected by autism in a very positive and approachable manner. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Seeking perfection as a dad is not sustainable. Humour helps - mostly. The spectrum is wide and fluid and I realise now that more people are actually on the spectrum than I ever thought. Take it one symptom at a time. It’s important to make boundaries clear for outsiders when it comes to your own family matters. Ritualising solutions that have proven successful is a very powerful strategy. If you haven’t yet, please support the project and hit subscribe. Also, please share this episode with others who need to hear this. Thank you! Enjoy! Correction: Following the podcast, Alan messaged me just to wrap up his incomplete comments on SMA that he couldn’t recall in the recording (around 46 minutes in). He wrote: “..SMA is the childhood onset of ALS, both debilitating motor neuron diseases. Apologies for blanking Philip, I was also confusing Christopher Reeves with another actor, Christopher doesn’t suffer from ALS although his ALS-like paralysis symptoms threw me in the moment. Stephen Hawking, of course, is a memorable case of the debilitating effects of ALS. Apologies for my confusion!”

17 Richard Walton "Being Dad" in the jungle
<p>Not only is Richard a successful serial entrepreneur and dad of 4 kids - three girls and one boy. I could tell immediately that Richard has done some deep introspection about being a father, family and values in his life.</p> <p>Richard is a man who follows his heart and therefore seems to make really good decisions in his life when it counts. At one stage in his life Richard decided to move to the jungle in Costa Rica - at a time when his first baby was 7 months and his wife pregnant with their second child - they were going to stay six months and ended up living there for 8 years.</p> <p>The result of this was that Richard was able to literally spend and live the first 8 years of his childrens lives together with them.</p> <p>In this episode, Richard and myself speak about some of the challenges we face as an entrepreneurs and dads. We chat about education, travelling and how - within a mere 4 years - Richard built a company with over 120 employees growing at insane rates all because he watched his son playing soccer on his own through the kitchen window. And of course the ups and downs of that journey.</p> <p>Enjoy!</p>

13 “The Iron Cowboy” James Lawrence on parenting, Birth & natural consequences
My next dad, James Lawrence aka “The Iron Cowboy”, is truly inspirational. James holds numerous world records and has achieved some pretty mind blowing results with his body and his mind. He is best known for doing 50 consecutive full Iron Mans in 50 American States. 50! What many people do not know is that James has always made a point of including his family in his adventures and world records. For instance, during the ‘50’, his daily appointment to run 5 ks with his daughter kept him going. James has five kids, four daughters and a son. Him and his wife are very young parents and he has a very healthy and inspiring take on being a dad and parenting. I love his ways of dealing with the fact that he is outnumbered by his kids in the positive manner he does. James opens up on his views as a Dad, he shares valuable, and very practical experiences and tips on how we can prepare our kids for adulthood. We talk about natural consequences that can aid parenting, chores, grit, failure and allowing yourself to laugh often. We then move on to talk about how we experienced the births of our children as dads (we have 10 between the two of us) and how dealing with energy in the right way can lead to emotional connection and emotional healing. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Communicate at an early age and make that the expectation. Emotions and how we vibrate in families and beyond is very real and often attached to a physical element. Natural consequence often brings great teaching moments. Don’t forget to enforce the natural consequence. Allow kids to be. Put a moral compass over sound principles to allow your kids authentically who they are as unique individuals. I have scheduled one-on-one birthday dates until the end of time with my kids. As always, if you like this session please do subscribe to the podcast and leave me a review. Please share this episode with others who need to hear this. Please enjoy another session of DADicated.com with James the “Iron Cowboy”.

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”. Please check out my wife’s podcast “On the run moms” (https://open.spotify.com/show/2XeAyRUVo3rWsiZd7MElcs) where she speaks about her life and learnings as a mom of twins and triplets.

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.
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”
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. As always, if you like this session please do subscribe to the podcast and leave me a review. Please share this episode with others who need to hear this.

#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!

#10 Rob & myself have 8 prem babies combined On parents relationships, own identities & family first
Rob Murray is a passionate Dad of three kids who are all born premature. His 4 year old was 5 weeks early and his 2 year old twins were 8 weeks early. I have 5 premature kids (10.5 and 10 weeks). Rob runs a digital agency business called intrigue that is growing 30% a year for the last 6 years, he is also the president of Entrepreneurs Organization in Ontario in Canada and he does lots of charitable work and he is very involved in his local start-up scene. Rob shares very valuable insights and strategies he and his wife Megan developed to keep their relationship strong and their family tight. We talk about challenges him (and myself) are facing with having had so many (prem babies) babies almost "at once". A big part of the session is about dadicated.com and our goals with the project because Rob’s wife couldn’t believe my story and told him to ask me all these questions since. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad: My wife’s and my relationship must come first to ensure a solid, safe foundation for the kids. Rob reminded me of what my good friend Alon told me: ensure you maintain a healthy balance of all your own roles and identities - even after there are kids. If I ask my wife what chores need to be done this is actually more mental load on her. If I want say yes to “family first”, I need to say NO to something else.

#9 life lessons from a dad who experienced bankruptcy with Conor Neill
<p>My next dad’s name is an inspiring man, Conor Neill. Conor is a Professor at IESE where he runs Leadership courses, he is an author, a keynote speaker, a serial entrepreneur and the Spanish President of Vistage, the worlds leading CEO organisation.</p> <p>He is Irish with two children from two marriages and obviously a very passionate dad. The session is inspirational and powerful because Conor has done some deep introspection of which he shares in powerful ways.</p> <p>Despite his amazing career the most profound insights in this session stem from Conor’s bankruptcy and how this business failure seriously humbled and changed him as a person - and as a dad. The event made him question many of his own behaviours. It also impacted heavily on his family-life and marriage and it’s interesting to hear how his values changed drastically in the years thereafter.</p> <p>Ultimately the bankruptcy brought him closer to himself and also his family.</p> <p>Conor is very well spoken and interesting. We address thought-provoking points around family, business, value systems and personal development - and of course being a dad.</p> <p>The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad and entrepreneur where:</p> <ol> <li>Personal success is worth nothing if it doesn’t come with family-success at the same time.<br> </li> <li>Kids over work.<br> </li> <li>When it seems the price could be fair, it’s fair.<br> </li> <li>"We judge ourselves by our intentions but others only see our actions." This counts for our children as well!<br> </li> <li>"Time is finite." Don't fill is with busy work but focus on the important things.<br> </li> </ol> <p>Many asked how you can support this project:</p> <ol> <li>Please do subscribe to the podcast<br> </li> <li>Leave a review<br> </li> <li>Share the podcast with other moms and dads - thank you!<br> </li> </ol> <p>Links for further reading and information:</p> <ol> <li>Conor Neill on Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/conorneill"><u>https://twitter.com/conorneill<br> </u></a></li> <li>Conor Neill on LinkedIn: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/Conor"><u>https://www.linkedin.com/in/Conor<br> </u></a></li> <li>Conor Neill on youtube: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcZhBlipmIFlfZjt-Ji4Udg"><u>https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcZhBlipmIFlfZjt-Ji4Udg<br> </u></a></li> <li>Conor’s personal websites: https://cono.rs/ &amp; <a href="https://conorneill.com/"><u>https://conorneill.com/<br> </u></a></li> </ol> <p>Book mentioned during the session:</p> <p>"A Million Miles in a Thousand Years", by Donald Miller: <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Million_Miles_in_a_Thousand_Years"><u>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Million_Miles_in_a_Thousand_Years</u></a></p> <p>Shoutout to <a href="https://blog.feedspot.com/dad_podcasts/"><u>https://blog.feedspot.com/dad_podcasts/</u></a> for including <a href="http://www.dadicated.com/"><u>http://www.dadicated.com</u></a> in the Top 20 Podcasts for Dads of 2019.

#8 Jason Reid on his son's suicide and teen suicide
This session is very powerful and intense. Jason Reid is 52 years of age, he is married and has three children. Last year his fourth son, Ryan, killed himself. Jason shares his son's story, his perspective as a Dad and his views on parenting and the challenges our children are facing in todays world. He gives a lot of valuable practical and powerful advice. Although the session is very sad and the topic difficult, teen suicide and depression are important points of conversation we need to have. Teen suicide is the second leading cause of death for the age range 15 to 24 in the U.S.A. Jason has since brought an organisation to life called chooselife.org and is on a mission to end teen suicide by the year 2030. He has also produced a documentary on teen suicide called "Tell My Story" (links below).  The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Our kids do not hear us, they emulate us. Be authentic and teach them vulnerability by being vulnerable yourself. Speak each other, to your own kids and to other kids. "I’m fine." is not a sufficient response from my child when my gut tells me otherwise. Parenting is inconvenient. Kids talk to us when they want to. Make sure you catch it when it counts. And lastly: the world has changed, our parenting needs to change accordingly.

#7 John Gray of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus"
My next dad is John Gray. You probably know him as the author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. The book was a long time bestseller in the 90s, he’s sold millions of his books. John is an interesting dad and our session was different and thought provoking. John dives deep into his work of the last few decades and translates his thoughts on the differences between men and women to dads and moms. We cover his standpoints on relationships, hormones, psychology, the difference between men and women and how we deal with stresses, diet and what dads and moms can teach their children when they are balanced in their own powerful energies as men and women. The session is honest and straightforward, which I like a lot. Some of the things John says or rather how he says them would be unpopular or politically incorrect - and that’s exactly why I found the conversation so interesting! If we launch into stuff you find difficult, I urge you to look beyond that and listen for your own value. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Violence comes from anger and fear and happens when you don't have role models who solve problems. Be a strong outside presence for your children and teach them that just because something difficult happened once, it doesn’t necessarily have to happen over and over again. Teach your daughters how they can trust in other people and be interdependent by making sure they can trust in you. How you treat your partner will translate to your own children. Fathers can provide resilience. Kids need to hear: you did your best and your best is good enough!

Flo shares his plans for his near future and his passion for the environment and the ocean. We discuss emancipation and how parenting has changed from when we were kids ourselves.&nbsp;</p> <p>Maybe the most powerful topic that keeps popping up in this session is the fact that we should leave our children of whom we borrowed this planet a decent Mother Earth. Flo is very passionate about conservation and we talk about the ocean crossing he is planning for (this was recorded in March 2019, due to an injury shortly after the project hasn’t happened yet).&nbsp;</p> <p>We talk about ‘digital challenges’ with kids, the impact we are having as a dad per se and of course actually taking responsibility for the impact you're having on your children by your own choices and actions.&nbsp;</p> <p>My key takeaways as a dad where:&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>If I eat chocolate, they can eat chocolate.&nbsp;</li> <li>Be intentional around your own actions and be aware of the impact your decisions have on your kids&nbsp;</li> <li>Spend as much time with your family as you can.&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p>Please rate and share with other moms and dads!

#5 Andrew Shortell lost a baby & was accused of shaken baby syndrome
Andrew Shortell is a dad of two children. Him and his wife lost their son Tristan at 4 months back in 2014 and where accused of shaken baby syndrome in the aftermath. The accusation was only cleared after many painful months and obviously the whole situation was beyond traumatic. Andrew takes me through what happened that particular night when they lost the baby and he shares how he managed to cope with the whole situation. The session is very powerful and sad. Andrew told me afterwards that he feels this could be the starting point for his own healing. I truly wish this for him! Despite the tragic story somehow they got through and with the arrival of their third child managed to turn their life back into a positive and happy outlook. This was awesome to hear! The session with Andrew left me thoughtful and inspired. The key takeaways for me as a dad where: Carry on, never give up Deal with sadness and loss as soon as you can. Don’t carry the sadness. It was powerful to hear how Andrew was able to focus his energy on the rest of the family and managed to turn things around Professionally Andrew is a Washington, D.C. based live event producer and film director.

#3 Grant Hatch “Being Dad” with stage 4 lung cancer
Grant Hatch is truly inspiring. He has four boys, he is extremely intelligent and has been successfully fighting stage 4 cancer for quite some time. Grant has managed to change his condition’s diagnosis from terminal to chronic by means of various treatments he initiated. This conversation, I was privileged to have with him, in essence is so powerful because Grant truly opens up how he feels like as a Dad of four with cancer but also, because we actually did not focus on the cancer so much. I was very interested in the Grant before and after the diagnosis and Grant shares some amazing insights. To put it lightly, I was blown away by Grant’s positivity, his energy and vibe. Grant feels very strongly about educating the public on cancer and Radon, a radioactive, natural gas that most likely caused Grant’s condition.
