Breaking Free from Your Default Life with Matt Aitchison

Breaking Free from Your Default Life with Matt Aitchison


Are you leading a rich life? Or are you drifting without intention, just trying to make it through the day? If you think there is more for you than what you have now, this show is for you.

Wealth is our topic today. We’re not talking about the usual definition of wealth, but what it means to you. To some people, having a happy, healthy family is wealth. To others, it’s freedom. To many, it’s the sports cars and big houses. But it doesn’t matter what your dream life is if you’re not thinking and acting in a way that gets you results.

Today’s guest is Matt Aitchison. He is the creator of The Rich Life Academy and host of the Millionaire Mindcast. “Matty A” is here to talk about breaking free from your default setting by auditing every aspect of your life and reengineering it so that you will exceed beyond the present identity you have for yourself.

We as human beings will never exceed or excel beyond the identity we have for ourselves.

Matt Aitchison and The Rich Life Academy

Matt Aitchison is a millennial entrepreneur, a 7-figure real estate investor, speaker and avid adventurist. Most importantly he is a proud husband and father to two beautiful girls who make his live a whole lot richer.

After some huge mistakes early in his life, Matt was determined to change his trajectory. He always dreamed of living a big life. He wanted to be financially free, make a difference in peoples’ lives, travel frequently, and have a bunch of fun while doing it all.

He decided that entrepreneurship would be his vehicle to unlock the life he always dreamed of. Now he is passionate about helping people design an intentional way of living that creates abundance and wealth, whatever that means to the individual.

Personal Development Event for Dads

The Ultimate Personal Development Event for Dads

Today I’m joined by my two facilitators for The Dad Edge Summit live event, Jason MacKenzie and Jeff Bouwman. We recorded this episode live in The Dad Edge Mastermind community. The men online were not only able to listen but also interact with us on the podcast.

There are five dimensions of manhood. They are health (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual), work, our relationship with our spouse, our relationship with our children, and finances. In this live Q&A, we go through how we approached each dimension of manhood in last year’s Dad Edge Summit and how we will approach them in this year’s summit using techniques like appreciative inquiry, group exercises, and visualization.

At most personal development events, we are part of an audience. We sit and listen to speakers, but The Dad Edge Summit is different. It’s active, not passive. The intimate setting allows for deep self-exploration and fosters breakthroughs that change the lives of the participants. Listen to why The Dad Edge Summit is the ultimate personal development event for dads!

Are you ready to create a future beyond imagining? Join us at the ultimate personal development event for dads June 2019 in St. Louis! #dads #men #fathers #stlouis #stl #events #personaldevelopment Click To Tweet

 

Jason MacKenzie and Jeff Bouwman

Jason MacKenzie is the author of The Dadly Book of Open: How Cultivating Vulnerability Makes You a Stronger, Wiser and More Courageous Father. Jeff Bouwman is the author of Your Income, Your Life, which helps parents understand what their relationship with money looks like today, and define what it could be going forward.

The two of them partnered up to create Adaptive Growth Systems, a full service training agency that specializes in bringing teams, organizations, and communities together to achieve the goals that matter most.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why the traditional meeting structure doesn’t bring about dynamic change

  • How to move from a deficit-based approach to one of possibility
  • How the dad/child relationship parallels the generation gap
  • How technology has changed a dad’s role. Before, our dad had the answers. Now the answers are at kids’ fingertips.
  • How to bring people together by asking better questions
  • Why men focus on weaknesses instead of strengths
  • How we’re taught to improve through correcting what’s not working instead of focusing on what is working and building on that
  • That self-improvement historically comes from eliminating weaknesses
  • How most people have never considered that focusing on strengths is a more effective way to improve
  • How it’s scientifically proven that when we focus on strengths, we accelerate the path we’re on

Optimizing Your Personal Relationship with Money — Exclusive Dad Edge Alliance Q&A with Grant Sabatier

Optimizing Your Personal Relationship with Money — Exclusive Dad Edge Alliance Q&A with Grant Sabatier

Our traditional mindset about money is one of scarcity. We believe we have to sacrifice and deprive ourselves of the things that give us the most joy. We budget the fun out of life. Money problems cause anxiety, depression, divorce, and even suicide. But in this day and age, our relationship with money no longer has to be this way.

Today we have an exclusive 90-minute Dad Edge Alliance Q&A with Monday’s guest, Grant Sabatier. He has just released his book, Financial Freedom: A proven path to all the money you will ever need and is here to transform your perspective about finance and talk about optimizing your personal relationship with money.

All the Money You Will Ever Need with Grant Sabatier

Today is our 200th episode of the main show. Thanks to all our listeners for downloading and leaving reviews! We have a spectacular guest for this milestone.

Finance is one of our most popular topics on The Dad Edge. We go through years of education and training for our careers, but we’re never taught about how to best use the money we make, and sadly, we rarely take active steps to find ways to increase our income.
