How to Become More Intentional with Your Time and Family with Carlos Reyes

Carlos Reyes

Carlos Reyes is a husband, father, serial entrepreneur, and owner of 31 businesses. He came to this country illegally as a young boy and watched his mother struggle to take care of him and his 2 siblings. Carlos eventually gained citizenship and quit his corporate job in 2015 after 14 years. Reyes found his passion in real estate and pursued the dream of becoming the owner of a real estate investment company. Carlos’ mantra in life is being more intentional with your time in order to get the most out of life. 

There is an extreme importance in being intentional with your time, family, and moving with a purpose. You can’t just say your main priorities are your family, yet you don’t intentionally carve out time to spend with them. Children spell love like T-I-M-E. All children want is our time, and they feel the most loved when we give them it. They don’t care about how much money we make, or what we buy them. They just want our undivided attention in order to feel important.

The Psychology Behind Marriage and Relationships with Kevin Gilliland

Kevin Gilliland

Kevin Gilliland is a husband, father, and author, and licensed clinical psychologist. He is the executive director of Innovation 360, an out-patient counseling service that helps individuals and couples struggling with mental health, relationship issues, and substance abuse. Kevin is the author of Struggle Well. Live Well. – 60 Ways to Navigate Life’s Good, Bad, and In-Between. This book is told through the eyes of Kevin and his approach to going through life. The topics in the book range from simple things such as work-life balance, to heavier topics such as mental illness and addiction. Kevin’s podcast Struggle Well. Live Well. Worry Less. helps people overcome anxiety, worry, mental health, and how we can treat the things that lead to a worry free life.

There is a certain psychology that comes with marriage. Marriage is one of the most rewarding and unique relationships that we will ever have. It’s hard to be aware of things we’re focused on when we’re in it. Sometimes, we are blinded by emotional resentment; we need the other person to give us input on how we perform best and what we need to do to work on things. The great thing about our spouses is that they can act as a mental coach in our lives. They see the things that we can’t see because we are unaware of what’s happening. They also can give us the potential to unlock our best selves when they give us their outside perspective. This doesn’t mean that you need to be their coach or vice versa; this means that you can give them constructive reinforcement for things they can work on or things they are good at in order for them to better themselves. This is important to remember because we don’t want to damage the connection we have with our spouses. We want to elevate them, not mentor them.

What You’ll Learn: 

[6:58]

Kevin talks about how he got into psychology.

[12:32]

Kevin discusses emotional resentment in marriages. He answers the question, “What does it take to become the best man you can be?”

[18:25]

Kevin talks about the costs of doing something about a problem that arises in your marriage versus doing nothing about it.

[22:34]

Marriage is a never-ending series of difficult conversations. The more we do it, the better we get at it, and we start to see the results of it.

[25:11]

Kevin talks about the fear of addressing difficulties in marriage, and how some people would rather give up than face the problem head on.

[37:09]

Kevin discusses the common themes between couples who have a great relationship and those who have a mediocre relationship.

[44:35]

Kevin gives advice to men that are within their first seven years of marriage.

[47:51]

Kevin talks about quiet expectations in a marriage.

[54:55]

Kevin discusses the issue of couples getting too upset over the mundane things that are really covering up the larger issues that need to be addressed. You can’t get hung up in the details that don’t really matter.

[58:22]

Kevin talks about the problem with asking, “Why?” when there’s a problem because it doesn’t give any insight as to what’s wrong. The typical responses to why someone is feeling a certain why is “I don’t know,” “Yes,” or “No.”

[1:01:17]

Kevin talks about his resources.

How to Be More Intentional and Present as a Husband and Father with Matt Wells

Matt Wells

Matt Wells is a husband, father, Business Technology Specialist, and creator of the video series Basic Dad Stuff. Matt Wells is currently enrolled in the Mastermind program at the Dad Edge, and is applying those principles to his life today with his video series Basic Dad Stuff. He coined the term from the creator of Basic Dude Stuff, and turned the series into short clips that talk about basic things that dads deal with every day. Through his humor and wit, Matt paints a picture of how fatherhood is meant to be humorous and fun, not a chore. Matt claims his two passions are being a father and helping other men be present and devoted dads.

As fathers, it’s important that we are intentional and present with our children, especially as they grow into adults. When you make the time to be a part of their lives and interests, you connect with them and build your relationship with them. Being present even in times of busyness is crucial to developing that bond with your child, so they can feel comfortable coming to you with anything. However, making time for your wife is just as important as making time for your kids. It’s easy to go all in with your kids, but sometimes, you fall back on your sword and your marriage suffers as a result. Having a strong marriage is the foundation to raising a strong family. Being a legendary father is all about balancing these relationships and making sure you’re giving it your all in each one. It’s definitely not the easy route, but it’s necessary on the path to living legendary.

What You’ll Learn: 

[3:28]

Matt talks about his videos and the inspiration behind them.

[5:07]

Matt talks about the funniest things he has said aloud to his children that he never thought he’d say.

[7:47]

How to Level Up Your Marriage with Dan Purcell

Dan Purcell

Dan Purcell is a husband, father of 6 children, and an entrepreneur. He is the founder of Get Your Marriage On! and CEO of Virgo Dev. Purcell has always been an entrepreneur at heart, and is motivated by creating products people love and creating a positive effect in their lives.

Purcell and his wife founded Get Your Marriage On! because they both found a passion in helping couples discover their true potential as spouses. Through this passion, came an app called Intimately Us which helps people discover what makes a passionate marriage really passionate. 

As married couples, we sometimes fall into this ceiling of intimacy or the “peak” of intimacy in our marriages. We think that this is it in terms of connecting with one another on an intimate level. We’re scared to take the next step and ask one another pivotal questions to improve upon our intimacy because we don’t want to fall down a few levels. 

Relationships are always a choice. Once you make your choice, you jump in with both feet. You can’t keep the back door open because you’re never fully committed to the person you’re with. Once you figure out that you’re with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the back door closes forever.

What You’ll Learn: 

[4:38]

Dan talks about his wife, kids, and what he does for a living.

[7:46]

Dan talks about the birth of his brand, “Get Your Marriage On.”

[14:47]

Dan talks about what intimacy means to him and his wife.

[16:24]

Dan talks about the good and bad things that arise from talking about intimacy with your spouse.

[28:10]

Dan talks about why friction is a good thing, and it means that a marriage is working.

[36:02]

Dan talks about what a good date looks like in a marriage.

[43:20]

The app Dan created called Intimately Us.
