He  is an accomplished athlete, global entertainer, philanthropist and author of the book “There’s No Such Things As A Bad Kid.”  He grew up in poverty, labeled a “bad kid” who would be dead or in jail by the time he was 16, but people invested in him when they had nothing to gain in return.

His professional wrestling career began when he was part of the second season of NXT and also competed on the show's fifth season, NXT Redemption. He has been a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion as part of The Prime Time Players with Darren Young and a one-time WWE 24/7 Champion, being the inaugural champion.

“Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, take another shot.” Anonymous I don’t know who this quote is from, however it is completely and totally appropriate for today's podcast.

How we can be a more compassionate father and that it's never too late to learn how to do new things. Richard Onis a songwriter and he is the lead guitarist for the American Rock Rock Group, o a r.

The couples that are meant to be together are the ones that go through everything that's designed to tear them apart and come out even stronger. That's an anonymous quote, but incredibly appropriate for today's podcast because my guest shares an unapologetic, authentic story that is incredibly inspiring. Today he shares an absolute brutal situation that was such an uphill battle. It could have easily torn his marriage apart. However, instead, they used it as a way to deepen their connection, strengthen their relationship, despite facing what seemed to be an impossible obstacle to overcome.  Matt Hadden is the president of Pioneer Belts (General Leathercraft Mfg.), a 3rd generation family-owned and operated business that services lifters around the world - all from their small town in central Texas. Show Notes: www.thedadedge.com/friday79
The success of our marriage depends on several different factors, but most importantly, we simply need to come to terms with the fact that we can't just wing the most important relationship of our life. We have to be intentional about learning skills like connection, communication, and creating a deep level of intimacy. Unfortunately, we don't learn these things growing up and our relationships truly suffer for it. Today, my guest gets raw and real on how his marriage suddenly came to an end, the clues that he saw in hindsight and what he could have done to save his marriage.  Matthew Fray is a relationship coach, blogger, and author of This is How Your Marriage Ends: A Hopeful Approach to Saving Relationships. His marriage ended in 2013. It involved a lot of sobbing, self-loathing, and feeling sorry for myself. A drunken phone call with a phone-a-therapist prompted him to “journal his feelings,” only instead of writing in a private journal like an adult, he drank more alcohol and published it to the internet. He found new life and purpose blogging about the end of my marriage, discussing relationships with others, and self-reflecting on how his own beliefs and actions contributed to his family’s demise. A bunch of people said it looked, sounded, and felt just like their marriage, and they all had a holy shit moment together, realizing collectively that their relationship conflict and trust-erosion patterns are all pretty much the same. That journey blossomed into a new career as a relationship coach, and then, an opportunity to write a book.  He's the divorced guy who got a tiny bit famous for leaving dishes by the sink. But it turns out it was never really about the dishes. Show Notes:www.thedadedge.com/397

Leaders are not exempt from adversity and obstacles. In fact, if anything, leaders have a larger target on our backs when it comes to challenges. If you're listening to this podcast, that means you are a dad and or husband, and that makes you a leader. Today, my guest, Jeff LoVecchio, former professional hockey player, shares his journey as a leader in the NHL, the adversity he faced, and how he led himself and his team despite his challenges and the success that came from it.

On this episode we talk about the benefits of a rite of passage, the life changing experiences and the lessons that serve a man for a lifetime.

The weekend is designed to mark your son's entrance into manhood in a meaningful way, in addition to bestowing the title of Man onto your son. The purpose of the weekend is also to share advice and wisdom with him. Show Notes: www.thedadedge.com/friday75

Another great episode! I have teens boys and have been thinking of ways to bring practical math or business situations to them. Abeka Comsumer Math was one avenue to assist with financial knowledge for the real world.

The Dad Edge Podcast is an amazing podcast. Each week Larry brings a variety of content, from big names to a Q&A to interviews with fathers like you had me who are doing the work to change their lives. For me, this podcast combined with the online community that Larry has established has been a huge catalyst for my growth as a man, husband, and father. If you're looking to be better in those areas, Larry's podcast is a great place to start.

Question. In this episode, Dr. Corey mentions "leading" your spouse and family. He uses an example, something like, When she asks 'Where do you want to go for dinner?'...HAVE AN ANSWER. My question is...When you give an answer and lead, why is there a discussion? Example...No, not Italian! I'm not in the mood for Italian. What's the point of leading and making a decision if its constantly up for debate? What am I missing?
