We only have 18 summers with our kids, and then they're gone. As much as we don't wanna think about it. Our kids will not be under our own roof forever. Today, my guest and I talk about ways we can embrace moments, be a hundred percent present with our kids, create a relationship with our wives, where it feels like we're always newly dating, no matter how long we've been together and how we can save for the future. Father of 4 graduates and loving husband, Matt Meline is the founder and CEO of PrairieFire, a company dedicated to helping financial planning and advice.  Matt is committed to improving his clients' quality of life through better money planning and investments by building the components to help families prepare so that when their children go to college it is not an issue of stress or conflict, and helping them plan for an exciting empty nest lifestyle along with a financial plan for the second half of their lives. A graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, Matt traveled the Midwest primarily as senior manager for various banking organizations but in the mid 1990s decided to become a full time financial planner.

Porn is one of the most common traps for men to fall into. Many of us think it's harmless but the fact of the matter is porn use will steal the number one precious commodity in our life and that is our time. My guest today gives us a deep dive into the emotional and psychological impact that porn has on our brain, our lives, relationships, and even productivity. A passionate and faithful promoter of mental health, Dr. Cameron Staley is a clinical psychologist dedicated to counseling and teaching psychology courses. Creator of the “Life After” series where he helps people improve their mental health by learning about the therapeutic approaches and research available. He gave a TEDx talk, Changing the Narrative Around the Addiction Story, where he shared the details of his research and counseling experience on helpful ways to talk about sexuality and how to effectively reduce the viewing of unwanted pornography through mindfulness. He developed a self-directed online program called Life After Pornography, which is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) concepts. He co-authored a chapter on Personality Disorders for an Abnormal Psychology textbook and has published several research studies on sexuality. Show Notes: www.thedadedge.com/friday70
28% of Americans don't have any savings to cover bills in case of emergencies. And another 21% said they had some money saved up, but not enough to cover even three months of expenses if needed. Being a husband and father means that we are the providers for our families. My guest shares simple and effective strategies to lower our financial stress, save for emergencies and how to work together as a team with our wives to create a financial future that we can feel good about. In 2009, Sam Dogen founded Financial Samurai, one of the top independently owned personal finance sites today with over 1 million organic visitors a month. During the middle of the financial crisis in 2009, he began Financial Samurai to help make sense of the financial crisis. He had been working in finance for 10 years and thought he had been doing all the right things with my money – saving 50%+, diversifying into real estate, maxing out my 401(k), etc. Yet, he still lost about 35% of my net worth within a matter of six months. It was a humbling experience. On the bright side, the financial crisis made him realize that he no longer wanted to work in the financial services industry. He lost the hunger to make lots of money and climb the corporate ladder after 13 years in the business. Instead, the downturn focused his attention on something he really enjoyed doing: writing and connecting with others online. He found himself addicted to Financial Samurai before work, during his lunch break, and after work. He was having so much fun! Therefore, in the Fall of 2011, he came up with the idea of negotiating a severance to be free from work for good. Sam has been married for 14 years and is the father of 2 kids.

We all experience times of fear, worrying, suffering, and stress through life. Sometimes it can last a day, weeks, months, seasons, or even years. But the bottom line is life was never meant to be easy or joyful at all times. However, we can shorten these tough times in our lives by becoming more resilient today, my guest shares from a faith based lens on how we can become more emotionally and spiritually resilient, even when it seems impossible.  Daniel Fusco grew up in a nominal Catholic family, and never heard much about Jesus. Because of faithful people sharing with him the truth about who Jesus is, he came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in 1998 while he was in his last year at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. He employs what some describe as a unique style of teaching. He likes to take the timeless truths of Scripture and make them easily accessible and applicable for men and women of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures. He also gets to host the Real. with Daniel Fusco TV show and the Jesus is Real Radio Ministry, featuring messages on TV and radio stations across the country. He loves to write and is a featured contributor to “Preaching Today,” and has published articles with Leadership Journal, pastors.com, and Calvarychapel.com. He’s written three books, Ahead of the Curve, (self-published), Honestly, Getting Real About Jesus and our Messy Lives, and Upward, Inward, and Outward, Love God, Love Yourself, Love Others (both published by NavPress).

Busy is a four letter word that is very familiar to men, husbands and fathers, especially when it comes to our professions and careers. It's not only our careers that keep us busy, but also all the demands of life. Many of us have the perception that we just don't have the time to live the life we truly want, create the marriage that we ultimately desire and have the connection with our kids that we truly want today. My legendary guest gives us specific strategies on how we can overcome the busyness of life, be insanely effective with our time, create the marriage we have always wanted and be the dads our kids deserve.

Being a parent who is supportive of our kids, hopes and dreams is something some of us are on board with and others aren't because it sometimes makes us uncertain. Some of our kids have hopes and dreams that might not make sense to us and even makes us nervous.

When it comes to raising our kids, many of us are simply repeating several ways that we were raised. We simply don't know any other way. And many of us are searching for ways to break patterns that truly don't serve us, our wives, or even our kids today. My guest goes over what it means to design a family operating system of high standards and character, how we can raise young men and women who will impact the world for good, for generations to come and how we as husbands and fathers can learn the skills to make it happen.

We are discussing rites of passage. This is something that is needed in our culture. My guest today is Bill Winchester and I wanted to bring him on because this subject is a must in today’s society. Bill and I talk about why a rite of passage is important, the things that are most meaningful for these young men to experience when they are going through a rite of passage.  As far back as he can remember, Bill’s life has been a mix of hard work and the pursuit of fun adventures. His parents, who both experienced difficult and even tragic upbringings, married young and quickly set about doing the best they could to raise a family. But it’s hard to build anything solid on broken foundations. Growing up as the firstborn son, Bill embraced his role of leader and protector for his two younger sisters. And as he watched his parents struggle to overcome the challenges of their childhoods while raising kids of their own, he learned first hand how important healthy families are for the future of our world. Just before starting high school Bill met a cute girl named Christie, and seven years later they were married. Within months of getting married Bill started his own remodeling company and then he and Christie learned that they were going to be parents sooner than they had planned. Fast forward 22 years, and Bill’s life has been full with one daughter, two sons, years of watching theater performances, coaching football and baseball, and taking his family on adventures wherever he can find them. Over the last few years, as his children have grown more capable and less dependent, Bill has felt an increasing urgency to help other fathers prepare their children to successfully transition into healthy manhood (and womanhood). And so, after 25+ years of building spaces, Bill is setting out on a new adventure as a builder of peak moments and HEROIC Men. As this episode is releasing, he is facilitating his first Father and Son Rite of Passage in the Deschutes National Forest outside of beautiful Bend, Oregon. If you’re interested in learning more about the importance of Rites of Passage, Bill would love to connect with you and even has a book he’d like to give to you and your son. Just email him at bill@menoftraction.com and put the word Initiation in the subject line. Show Notes:  www.thedadedge.com/friday66
It doesn't matter if you are an everyday dad or like my guest today, who is a celebrity and in the limelight where there's demands on his time, demands on everything. And yet still can carve out time for his wife and for his kids. And when the world is uncertain and we kind of live in some turmoil, we have the opportunity, no matter what level we're operating at to use our gifts and talents to be a shining light and a beacon of light in someone else's darkness. My guest for this episode, David Rosales is the lead singer of the David Rosales Band. Today we are going to hear his story as a man, husband and father. He tells the story of how he was on top of a building in Los Angeles. Even when everyone needs something from him as an artist, he still finds time to carve for his family. He shares some wonderful stories of how regardless of what life throws at us we can use our gifts, our strengths and our talents to be a beacon of light and hope and maybe just a bit of an escape.

On this episode with Clint Hoopes, we talk about leadership! If things are good in your business and you're the leader, then it's you. And if things in your business are bad, it's on you. It's always leadership. The success and the failures always reside on leadership.  Our leadership skills are insanely important if we want success in business, but within our marriages as well. Leadership shows up everywhere. In parenting, with how we raise and lead our kids. My guest, Clint Hoopes is the proud father of 6 children as well as a Podcast Host and Executive Coach for Business Owners/Leaders who are husband, fathers, and family men.  Over the years he has led hundreds of employees in various roles from manager level to CEO.

When it comes to making mistakes, how likely are you to forgive yourself? This podcast episode will rattle you. My guest, Gavin Meenan has come from the ashes both personally and professionally. I won’t spoil it for you, but there are a lot of stories that we go into in depth of how he went through gut-wrenching life events. Gavin Meenan is a nationally recognised leader in the Irish health and fitness industry. Through this hands-on work with people from all walks of life, Gavin soon learned that mindset is the most critical component of success. Whether it’s in the gym, at home or in the workplace, battles are won and lost in your mind – long before you make your first move. Gavin’s belief in this truth has been reinforced by thousands of hours spent honing his skills, delivering results for his clients, and overcoming personal challenges.  Gavin is now expanding his business to serve men everywhere. His number one goal is to help them grow stronger and live better – inside the gym, and outside it too. Show Notes:www.thedadedge.com/383

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?

This is a unique way of conversing dark issues that plague most men. Please keep up the great work, you don't know how many random lives you are touching.
