As entrepreneurs and business owners, we’ve all taken tests like Myers-Briggs, DISC, and Core Values Index to better understand who we are and where we naturally shine. But so few of us have used tools like these to understand our strengths as parents, even though it’s one of the most important roles in our lives! Today’s guest, my friend Brandon Miller, is the co-author of Incredible Family: Discover Your Parenting Strengths and Raise Your Kids with Confidence. Not only is the book packed with great information, but it also includes a powerful parenting assessment tool to help you and your partner uncover what makes you uniquely great as parents.  Brandon’s really hit on something big with this book, as proven by the fact that he was voted Most Influential by the Front Row Dads Brotherhood after presenting this material at our last retreat. Also joining us is fellow Front Row Dad, Les McDaniel, who trains coaches that help parents and their children become stronger, more loving, and more peaceful.  So what exactly does it mean to build an “incredible family” and how do we make it happen? That’s what this discussion is all about. If you want to bring the joy back into your parenting and shift from being frustrated to fascinated, and from conflict to cooperation, this episode is a must-listen!  PS: Want 2 free copies of Incredible Family? Write an honest review of the podcast, send a screenshot of your review to jon@frontrowdads.com, and I’ll send you and your spouse a copy in the mail. It’s my way of thanking you for your support, and I know it’ll make a big difference for you and your family. Gold Nuggets What readers can expect from Incredible Family.  How understanding our strengths as parents can help us identify patterns and resolve conflicts.  How Brandon’s entrepreneurial experience informed his methodology as a parent. The value of raising kids who grow up confident (not arrogant). The importance of being more passionate about our families than our businesses. How reaffirming strengths amplifies them. Why inherent negativity bias constantly reaffirms what we’re not - and the power of shifting away from this mindset. Why Brandon and Les said yes to Front Row Dads and why they’re still in the Brotherhood. Big Questions Asked How do we partner with someone to give our children the five things they need? Do many parents have overlapping strengths? How do I make sense of my parenting assessment? Why don’t our priorities as parents always align? How can we look for the shine in our kids’ eyes to understand what’s working and what isn’t, in our families Why do so many parents lack confidence? Why aren’t men leading the way on unity right now? What happens when we play to our partners strengths and show up as a true leader? Why does everyone need a coach? How can strengths assessments help us solve society’s toughest challenges? How do we amplify what’s good to silence what’s not? Why can it be so hard for us to identify our true strengths? How does gratitude uncover strengths in other people?

Sachin Patel returns to the podcast to talk with me about 3 health gadgets that can make your life better as a dad, husband and business owner! In case you didn’t already know, Sachin is a functional medicine success coach and Founder of The Living Proof Institute. His philosophy is that “The doctor of the future is the patient” and he is actively doing whatever it takes to keep people out of the medical system and empower them through education, self-care, and remapping their mindset. Sachin first showed up at one of our live events, and completely blew everyone away with the ideas and information he shared. In fact, that session is still being talked about to this day, years later! He has since brought his knowledge to the podcast as a guest, and is returning once again today to share his wisdom! In this session, we’re discussing 3 pieces of wearable technology that you can use to understand patterns and problems with your health, so you can make adjustments and optimize your life! P.S. Sachin is also a regular speaker within the brotherhood and will be running our training call in March. He’s also one of our featured experts for the Front Row Dads Online Summit.

How can we better understand the health issues our kids are having? What can we learn from a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) - and how do we interpret the data it gives us?

Do you have true companions in your life?  And let’s back up for a minute -- how do you define a true companion anyways?   Is your wife a true companion?  Returning to the show, my friend Dr. Kelly Flanagan and I are going to talk about how to build true companionship with the people who are most important to us.  Before Kelly joined the Front Row Dads brotherhood, I knew him as a speaker, elite-level coach, and badass author of the book Loveable, which our guys raved about. In his new book, True Companions: A Book for Everyone About the Relationships That See Us Through, Kelly shows us what happens when we quit sabotaging intimacy by demanding unconditional love. Show Highlights The only perspective that can keep us focused on our true companions Why loneliness is the shadow side of your uniqueness The uncomfortableness of being alone The value of the Enneagram The process of building belonging Why lying and secrecy is a form of withdrawing from a relationship How to shift from defensiveness to empathy and compassion The 4 main words for love How we often use unconditional love to say “Lay off me!” The 5-session study guide to help you and your partner make the most of Dr. Kelly’s new book PS: If you like this episode and you’d like a FREE copy of Kelly’s book, True Companion, simply write an honest review of this podcast on iTunes, take a screenshot, and send it to jon@frontrowdads.com along with your address.

Are you running on the neuroscience of love and connection, or fear and reactivity? For many, fear and reactivity are driving your actions more than we realize. In this show, we’re going to address how to fix this and lead from a centered and controlled energy. Mike Wagner has been on a path to evolve as a father. He’s a member of the Front Row Dads Brotherhood, and is going to share his personal experiences taking a deep dive into his own emotions, and how they used to run his life, and how he shifted into the driver seat. A bit of context… Mike had trained to be a physical therapist, but felt like something was off. He then made a transition into real estate investing, with a focus on self-storage. His successes have allowed him to explore personal development, focus on his family, and explore the country. In short, he lives what he calls a life of awesomeness. He also recently worked extensively with Dr. Danny Friedland to better understand how top performers use mindfulness combined with neuroscience to turn their feelings of stress, burnout, and unhappiness into incredible leadership. In this show, we have an honest conversation about learning to love ourselves, working through the rough patches, and what we can do to ensure we’re living in alignment with our deepest values. PS: In honor of Dr. Danny’s life and his work, we’re going to be giving away several copies of his book, Leading Well Within. To claim yours, simply leave me an honest review of the Front Row Dads podcast, mention either Mike Wagner or Dr. Danny, and take a screenshot. Send it to rachel@frontrowdads.com, and I’ll personally send you a copy! Show Highlights How understanding the intersection of neuroscience and mindfulness makes us better leaders How to recover when you lose your $hit at home A step you can take right now to better understand what happens when you get triggered The connection of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and the evolved father How Mike structures his day for optimal performance How mindfulness allows us to redefine and reframe strife and pull out of a downward spiral Why focusing just on the money stops us from personal development Mike’s personal story of how he freed up his time to focus on personal growth Big Questions Asked Are we running on the neurochemistry of love and creativity, or of fear and reactivity? What can we do to work through feelings of discontent or self-loathing? What is the value in thinking about death? What does It mean to be 'triggered' and how can we manage those emotions? Why does it sometimes feel like our life, no matter how awesome it is, is not good enough? What are we really asking for when we say we need someone to do something? How can we implement mindfulness into our daily practice? Get the Full Show Notes Want access to the full show notes, including links to all resources mentioned during today's conversation?

For many of us, the money we make is directly related to the amount of time we put into something. When we are directly responsible for growing our businesses, writing books, or traveling to speaking events - to name just a few examples - we are putting time in to get money out. As we all know, this comes at a cost, and every hour we grind is an hour spent not focused on our families. My friend Justin Donald didn’t just challenge this framework - he broke it, giving him the power to live the life he wants on his terms. Dubbed “The Warren Buffett of Lifestyle Investing” by Entrepreneur, he is a master of low-risk cash flow investments. 21 months before his 40th birthday, he drove enough passive income for him and his wife to both leave their jobs.  In his new book, The Lifestyle Investor, he shares exactly how he negotiated deals with 100 companies and hit an eight-figure net worth while keeping his family at the center of everything. Today, Justin joins the podcast to talk about the meaning of money, share some of his biggest wins (and what he learned from some real failures), unique ways to invest, and what it truly means to achieve financial freedom. PS: If you loved this interview, Justin will be a keynote speaker at our upcoming Online Summit along with David Osborn, Adam Stock, and Will Duffy.

PPS: If you’d like a free copy of Justin’s book, simply leave me an honest review of the Front Row Dads podcast and take a screenshot. Send it to rachel@frontrowdads.com, and I’ll personally send you a copy! Gold Nuggets    Justin’s 10 commandments of investing Why you don’t have to be at a certain level of financial success to become a lifestyle investor Why you don’t always need to invest your own money to create cash flow and scale a business The value of taking someone’s success and making it your own Why Justin opens his book with a story about losing a lot of money How to tell if a deal is a win-win The dangers of emotional investing The importance of health and community to living the life you want Big Questions Asked How do you balance needing to be all-in at times with honoring the lifestyle you want to live with your family?  What happens when you separate your time from money? How do you live in congruence with what you’re most passionate about?  Where do you find unconventional investing opportunities? How did investing change in 2020? If you have $10,000 to invest right now, where should you put it?  If you have $100,000 to invest right now, what should you do? How do you make sure that you’re in true alignment with a financial advisor?

For high achieving Dads, it’s far too common to get sucked into cycles of success. When we’re addicted to being busy, it’s easy to let ourselves think that we just need to write one more book or do one more round of speaking events – and providing for our families becomes our excuse to keep going.  So, how do we get the job done AND show up for our families?  Earlier this year, Brock Blake had to answer this question for himself like never before. After COVID-19 hit, his company Lendio became a massively valuable resource for small business owners, many of whom couldn’t get access to PPP loans through their banks. This required Brock to pull 20-hour days for six straight weeks and proved to be ten times harder than anything else he’d ever done in his career. As Brock put it, “We changed our mission from fueling the American dream to saving the American dream.” But how did he manage all of this, without sacrificing his family in the process? Today, Brock joins the podcast to talk about his journey, and to bust the myth that it’s impossible to build a great business, while also having a great relationship with your wife and kids! Gold Nuggets    The value of missionary work. The influence a Dad's behavior has on their kids.  What a religious upbringing can teach you about life and business. How Brock scaled his company and onboarded hundreds of employees, while maintaining balance at home. How to navigate the stress and strain of long workdays. Brock’s 3-part playbook for being a Dad that wins in business AND life. The importance of being present at work and at home. Ways to involve your kids in your business.   Big Questions Asked What does the Blake family name mean to you?  In what ways do our fathers influence us?  Why should we expose our kids to discomfort at early ages? What did you learn from growing up as a Mormon? Tell us about the genesis story of Lendio and how that ties in to your mission trip to Uruguay? Why is the busy season so addictive?  Is it possible to be both a great Dad AND a great businessman? What does your morning routine look like? How can we get better sleep, more often?  Why is one-on-one time with our kids so important?  When you look at what happened in 2020 as a dad and as a business owner, what’s one thing you would like to make an improvement in when it comes to your family life?

Very few kids understand money, investing, charitable giving, or financial literacy by the time they finish high school. As parents, a lot of us learned about money the hard way, through struggles and tough decisions, but our experiences don't always make it easier to teach our kids how to make great financial decisions. When COVID-19 brought in-person schooling to a crashing halt, family wealth manager Adam Stock decided to be part of the solution. Rather than complain about how lousy online education was, he created Money Mondays. Over a series of Zoom calls for kids aged 10-15, he and a number of incredible guests gave presentations on a wide range of financial concepts, including the value of saving, investments, charitable giving, and much more.  Today, Adam and I are talking about how formal education fails so many kids when it comes to finances, the issues parents face when we talk about money with our kids, and the power of charitable giving.  We also introduce the best of Money Mondays, a condensed, 3-week series of one-hour classes Adam will be hosting in January. If you have kids ages 10-15 who you think would be a great fit for this, please text WEALTH to (512) 379-6952, or email rachel@frontrowdads.com to find out how you can enroll today. Gold Nuggets    How and why Adam started teaching a group of kids about money when COVID hit. Important topics to focus on when teaching your kids about money. Teaching kids that making money and becoming successful doesn’t happen overnight.  Teaching kids about philanthropy. Why money equals responsibility. Adam’s family rituals around charitable giving and gratitude. Find out how your kid can participate in Money Monday’s this January! How to make a donation in your kids’ name this holiday season in an impactful way.   Big Questions Asked What is Money Monday?  Why doesn’t school teach our kids about money? What financial topics are important for our kids to learn? How can talking about money help us understand what our kids value and believe in? If your kid had a briefcase full of money, what cause would they give it to? Don’t miss the exercise Adam gave to a group of kids that gets them thinking about charitable giving.  Should you give money to panhandlers? Adam’s answer may surprise you! Will your kids have the same value around money as you do? Get the Full Show Notes Want access to the full show notes, including links to all resources mentioned during today's conversation?

What are you doing to create structure and stay productive as you navigate the chaos of your life, both at home and at work?  How do you take a stand when you need to, have tough conversations, and take big risks to truly understand everything that’s out there?  If you’re looking for answers to questions like these, today’s conversation - one of my favorites I’ve had all year - is for you. I’m speaking with my friend Ben Crawford - someone with a truly deep understanding of how to challenge perspectives and push for more. He ran ultramarathons with his young kids, lived intentionally for a year with no rules, and hiked the Appalachian Trail with his wife and their six children - something he wrote about in his newest book, 2,000 Miles Together.  Even if you’re not quite ready to commit to an odyssey like Ben’s, if you want to know what you and your family are truly capable of, this episode is for you. We explore what it means to achieve your family’s full potential, the importance of questioning the status quo, and how to stop your ego from defining who you are. Gold Nuggets    How to bring the same intentionality and sense of purpose you apply to your work life to your family.  What makes writing a book feel so different from writing on social media. How to show your kids that there’s more to life than being praised. Why waiting for a dollar amount to prioritize something means you’re never going to make that change. How pattern interrupts and dramatic contrasts erase entitlement - and what happened when Ben and his wife hiked the Appalachian Trail.    Big Questions Asked Why is it so easy for us to put our home life on autopilot?  How do our beliefs reinforce themselves over time, and how do they limit us?  What do awards mean, and how should we handle awards when it comes to our kids? How do you get your kids to appreciate what you have in life and adopt a mindset of gratitude, regardless of how you’re doing financially?  How do we value time over money in both theory and practice? Why does asking someone “What do you need?” actually put more of a burden on that person - and how can we take action instead?  How does saying “I love you” become a form of gaslighting in relationships?  What can you do this week - not two decades from now - to prioritize your relationships or make your life better?

This year, practically everyone experienced some form of failure. A lot of things that didn’t work, didn’t take hold, or set us back as we navigated extraordinary challenges in our personal health, our marriages, and our ability to parent. But why fixate on that? Why not explore what did work?  Today, Front Row Dad members Mike Higgins, John Kane and I are getting together for an honest conversation about our biggest wins.  With the intention of helping you win at home, at work, and in the areas of life most important to you, we’re digging in on what worked in our community, how our pillars evolved, how our teammates and friends show up for us, and the powerful decisions we were able to make in 2020. Gold Nuggets    The importance of building teams where people are complementary and able to support each other. How to define your values and get clarity about what you do and don’t want.  How to tighten bonds and strengthen connection as you build and grow groups. How to adapt your operations in the face of challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic. Big Questions Asked How do challenges help us stay accountable and make breakthrough achievements?  What can we do to show gratitude and reward people?  When is it time to make adjustments in your world or end relationships that don’t serve us?  How do we make the transfer of wisdom more available within groups?  How can we (and our pillars) evolve as the world evolves?

With all that’s going on in the world and the challenges we’re facing as husbands, parents, and entrepreneurs, how do we make the time this year to meaningfully celebrate?

How meeting people in the middle allows us to rise together.  How to talk to your family about diversity.

So many parents who own businesses want to help their children dream big. We want our kids to be able to turn their visions into reality, no matter what they want to do. However, it isn’t always easy to teach those skills. You may not be able to tell if your kids are serious when they come to you with an idea. You also may not know how to help them get the clarity they need to take that idea seriously. If you’re wondering how to teach problem solving, encourage your kids, and instill the spirit of entrepreneurship along the way, you’re going to love today’s conversation. I’m speaking not just with Ryan Waugh — a winemaker, entrepreneur, and father of two — but also his son Carter. Carter came to Ryan with the idea for his product, Critts shoes, when he was eight years old. Instead of being dismissive or thinking of it as a pipe dream, Ryan helped Carter create his first business plan and file his first patent. Two years later, they’ve run a successful Kickstarter and raised over $40,000, manufactured products that will be shipping soon, and recently got picked up by Nordstrom. It’s an incredible story, and a must-listen not just for dads, but your kids too!   Gold Nuggets    Why you don’t have a million things to do - just the thing you have to do right now. How a family is a microcosm of a community - and how stronger families can create stronger communities. How to teach your children to create business plans. Why it’s so important to treat your kids’ ideas as more than just white noise. The powerful ripple effect of young entrepreneurship. Big Questions Asked How do you run a successful business, show up for your family, and have time for it all? How do you show your kids that their biggest, brightest, and best ideas can become reality? What can parents do to create loving, positive relationships between siblings? How does entrepreneurship help us push forward and address our toughest challenges as a species and a society?

Today is our preview clip of the week, which is basically a short 10 min clip that we pulled from the full length interview. If you like what you hear in this bite sized segment, you may want to check out the full length episode on Wednesday at FrontRowDads.com/249 About Today's Guest The story of Waugh Family Wines is one of Hopes, Dreams, Fate, Passion and True Love! Ryan Waugh was born and raised in Newberg, Oregon and Crystal (Kettle) Waugh was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Ryan had aspirations to be a surgeon and followed that dream to Santa Clara University where he graduated with degrees in Biology and Chemistry. Crystal enjoyed business and fashion and attended Texas A&M where she achieved a bachelor degree in Marketing and Business Administration. After graduating Crystal entered the Executive Training program at Neiman Marcus. Quickly climbing the ladder, soon Crystal was in charge of the college recruiting program. During Ryan’s freshman year at Santa Clara, a friend’s father shared a bottle of wine with Ryan from the year he was born. The bottle was a 1976 Stags Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Lot 2, which hangs in a shadow box in the Waugh’s living room. This wine sparked an intense passion within Ryan who found a job working in a vineyard near Santa Clara University. During his sophomore year, Ryan attended a career fair at UC Davis and landed a part time job at a Napa Valley Winery, Chateau Potelle. After graduating, Ryan moved to Napa and became the full time cellar master at Chateau Potelle. As fate would have it, Crystal was recruiting Santa Clara students on the campus in the late 90s for Neiman Marcus while Ryan was still attending the University. They were not destined to meet quite yet. It was not until March 5 of 2004 where their paths would finally cross. A girlfriend of Crystal had her bachelorette party in Napa Valley. The group of 10 girls checked into their hotel in Yountville, The Villagio. Ryan was pouring his “boutique” wines in the lobby of the hotel. Crystal walked up to Ryan and asked for some Zinfandel, they were engaged to be married a year later. Together, Ryan and Crystal have grown their Waugh Family Wines business from the 100 cases and one label produced out of Ryan’s garage starting in 2000 to 4000 cases produced, consisting of 3 different labels, a sparkling wine called Crystal and grapes grown from 17 different vineyards between Napa and Sonoma. They also built a custom crush winery called The Caves at Soda Canyon, located on 41 acres in the Napa Valley which is the home to 4 first generation winemaking families. The Caves is where Waugh Family Wines produces their wines. Access the Full Interview Want access to the full interview, including links to all resources mentioned during today's conversation?

Do you have a great mentor in your life?  Were there people in your childhood, at school, or at work who pushed you to new heights and inspired you to dream bigger?  When you’ve faced real challenges, who showed up for you in your moment of need?  If you answered yes, you already know that mentors are extraordinary people. They can lead us to new opportunities, help us triumph over the toughest things we face in life, and push us to be better fathers, husbands, and business owners.  As I interviewed today’s guest, Wayne Herring, it became clear to me just how impactful mentors can be. Wayne is the founder of Business Builder Camp, where he helps guys grow businesses to serve their families more efficiently, but he didn’t get there alone. He is living proof that mentors of all kinds help us thrive in good times and survive in bad ones. We’re talking about the incredible lessons we’ve learned from others, and how you can use this wisdom to step up your game as a human being and show up for the people you love, too!     Gold Nuggets    How to articulate your three-year vision for your life in business and at home — even if you suck at predicting the future. How to rebalance your life when it feels like everything is crashing down. How to support people you love — including yourself — through health crises and conflicts within your family.  Taking time away from social media. The personal decision to give up alcohol — does it result in less fun? Big Questions Asked Why do mentors have such powerful impacts upon us at every stage of life? How can we have more positive relationships with social media and our smartphones?  What resources are available to men whose children are struggling with eating disorders? When loving on people, when is it right to push, and when is it right to give space and back away?  Get the Full Show Notes Want access to the full show notes, including links to all resources mentioned during today's conversation?

If you like what you hear in this bite sized segment, you may want to check out the full length episode on Wednesday at FrontRowDads.com/246 About Today's Guest As the founder of Business Builder Camp, Wayne Herring has helped men across the country grow their businesses into successful and thriving enterprises. However, there is so much more to his story than simply “coach” or “consultant.” Wayne has worked as a specialty drilling and blasting contractor and an organic farmer. He has run ultra marathons, gone on epic road trips, and is a 1997 Montana state arm wrestling champion. He loves to hunt and farm, but he also enjoys yoga and meditation. Some have described Wayne as a renaissance man, but he thinks that is a strange term for the son of a coal miner.  Having grown a business and coached other business owners, Wayne understands we all have times in our lives where we are blocked. He founded Business Builder Camp to help men overcome obstacles in growing their businesses while creating fulfilling and enjoyable lives. He achieves this both through 1:1 coaching and participating in group retreats. Wayne pushes the members of his Camp to see new possibilities, discover new tools, and identify the gifts they didn’t know they had. Additionally, Wayne is passionate about gathering his clients together at lodges or his farm for fun, friendship, adventure, and rest.
