DAD EDGE ALLIANCE - Unlock the Secrets to Living an Epic Life

The Dad Edge Alliance – Unlock the Secrets to Living an Epic Life

In the last episode of GDP, we had ultra-successful businessman and life coach Aaron Walker. He explained that he owed 100% of his success to his tribe and the people he surrounded himself with. In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I will tell you how you can make sure you surround yourself with the right people to become the best husband, father, and man you can be.

It’s seems the older we get, the more closed off we become. Why is that?

I posted this question on the Dad Edge private Facebook group and got tons of answers. It’s harder to make new friends as an adult. Priorities change when we have families, and we feel guilty for taking time away from our spouse and kids to spend time with friends and mentors. We might not want to make ourselves seem vulnerable by asking for advice or help. Even when we become successful, we might feel we can’t relate to anyone anymore. Some of us experience such great failures, we’re embarrassed to talk about them.

Even the guys who are involved with sports and church activities still feel like something is missing.

That is why we have built this tribe where we can talk about anything in an ego-free, judgement-free, arrogance-free environment. This is an brotherhood of likeminded men––those who want to teach and those who want to learn; those who want to inspire and those who want to be inspired. We discuss real things that will make us better, more powerful, and more efficient men so that we can live our lives at full throttle. We can live life together and on purpose.

Welcome to the Dad Edge Alliance, where the elite and the hungry want to interact.

Keep Love Alive

3 Ways to Keep Love Alive

In this episode of Thursday Throwdown, we are going to talk about our wives. As men, we have a hard time balancing our relationships, especially when kids come into the picture. Most of the time, it’s the relationship with the woman in our life that gets put on the back burner. We get lazy. We take it for granted. This is when our marriages are in danger of becoming stagnant. So how can we feed our relationship to keep love alive? Here are three ways.

Never stop courting your spouse

When we first meet our spouse, we are respectful and conscientious. We constantly compliment her and focus all our attention on her. We have to keep the courtship going.

Have purposeful undistracted conversations every day

Our partner feels love and connection when we listen to her. Make sure you’re not looking at the TV or checking your phone when she’s talking to you.

Set aside special quality time alone

Make date night a priority. It’s not a luxury, but a necessity. Don’t feel guilty for leaving the kids. They might need a break from you too.

Why Every Man Needs a Rope Team

Why Every Man Needs a Rope Team

Last week on the Good Dad Project, we had Erik Weihenmayer, the first and only blind man to summit Mount Everest. On this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I’d like to expand on his concept of a rope team and why every man needs one.

It seems that, as men, the older we get, the more and more isolated we become. We’ll go it alone as a husband, a father, and a man. We live our lives in quiet desperation. We may even achieve success on our own and find ourselves lonely at the top. That is why every man needs a rope team. We need a group of other men to turn to for advice. We need to be able to share our experiences to help others.

How to be the rock for your kids

How to Be the Rock for Your Kids

As much as we want to encourage our kids to do their best, we might be unintentionally causing them undue stress. That is why it’s crucial – whether in sports, school, or life – that our kids see the same us when they look to us for support.


This means that no matter what our kids are going through, we should always be a safe place for them to turn to. We have to be aware of our reactions. When our kids fail, will we look ashamed or disappointed? Do we tell them what they should’ve done? Do we seem overly protective? Or will we always be open, receptive, listening – the rock for our kids?

What Happened When My Family Gave Up Screen Time for 40 Days

What Happened When My Family Gave Up Screen Time for 40 Days

Electronic devices are a part of our lives now. Can you imagine giving them up? Would your kids survive without their phones, tablets, and video games? Listen to what happened to my family when we gave up our screen time for 40 days!


My family is Catholic and for Lent this year, my nine-year-old decided to give up screen time. That means no Playstation, no Wii no TV, no iPad. Our whole family was so inspired by his sacrifice, we all gave up our screens and it has changed our lives in amazing ways. We don’t sit around watching TV anymore. It forces us to go outside and play basketball or football. No one is looking at their phones. We even play board games. We huddle together and read books. Now that we’ve given up our screens, we really don’t want them back.

Would you take the no screen time challenge? Let us know if you do and share your experience in the Dad’s Edge Facebook Group.
