75 hard transformation

A Dad’s 75 Hard Transformation Story

In today’s episode of The Dad Edge, we interview Justin Holland, popularly known as Juice, who completed the 75 Hard challenge with us in The Dad Edge Alliance.

Juice started 75 Hard on November 1st with a starting weight of 344 pounds. He chose November specifically because it’s the toughest time to begin a challenge like this. It’s the holiday season, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year were all standing in the way of his success.

Juice thought if he could go through this, he could go through anything. He has now dropped down to 290 pounds!

What You’ll Learn

Juice’s story

Juice is a father to two girls and a boy. He’s a special member of the mastermind because he keeps all the other dads motivated by the progress pictures he posts every week.Even though it wasn’t a necessity to make those pictures public, Juice wanted to make himself more accountable and motivate others to push themselves further.What he learned from the challenge:

  • Drinking a gallon of water every day will reduce your hunger. Sometimes you’re hungry because you’re dehydrated.
  • Eating healthy becomes a lifestyle after you complete the challenge. You’re not forced to do it anymore.
  • You get immense mental clarity and toughness from 75 Hard. The physical transformation is just a bonus.
  • You become much more patient and emotionally resilient.

Talking about patience

Juice talked about an incident where he was disappointed his daughter about something. But rather than blaming or punishing her, he and his wife Jill talked the situation out with her. This helped them build a better relationship and everyone walked away from the conversation happy and satisfied.

Juice’s plans for the future

Juice plans to take a break and start with the next phase of 75 Hard in mid-Feb. The reason he decided to take a break is that he wants to test the skills he has learned in the real world and come back stronger.

healthy habits

Healthy Habits for Marriage, Fatherhood, and Fitness


Lockdown has affected us physically as well as mentally. Our relationships have been challenged like never before. But we have the power to recalibrate with healthy habits that will help our bodies, minds, and connection to our families.

Today we talk to everyday dad and Dad Edge Alliance member, Jordan Kaufman. He talks about the signs that warned him he needed to change, why he committed to an extreme health challenge, and how he will use his newfound resilience to keep making his body, mind, and marriage stronger.

What You’ll Learn

  • Step outside of arguments to keep your cool and solve problems.
  • Train yourself to have more humility and be less defensive.
  • Listen to what your wife is really saying and not to how it’s being delivered.
  • Apply the growth mindset to your marriage. You might not get it today, but you will get it down the road.
  • Approach disagreements with appreciation and curiosity. You don’t have to agree, just understand.
  • You’re in control of your thoughts, responses, and actions, no matter how you feel.
  • Help your kids solve the problem instead of reacting to it.
  • Jordan took charge of his health when he realized he was getting dad boobs.
  • Accountability is the biggest factor in the success of fitness goals and all other goals.
  • Take care of yourself in the between moments. Small habits add up to big results.
  • Use your fitness routine as time with your children.

family leadership

The Process of Family Leadership—Dad Edge Alliance Exclusive Q&A with Errol Doebler

We are all going to go some day. What kind of culture do you want to leave behind for your family and the generations to come?

We have an intense experience for you today. Errol Doebler, former Navy SEAL and FBI Special Agent, is back on the show. He is a husband, a father of three, and the author of The Process, Art and Science of Leadership.

Errol participated in a live event with the Dad Edge Alliance, where more than 70 men had the opportunity to listen to his arsenal of family leadership training and got a chance to ask him questions on how to use the process of leadership to become strong leaders for their families.

Errol explains how the leadership strategies used for battle are the same we need to use in the boardroom and the home. In this behind-the-scenes peek into the Dad Edge Alliance, you will learn how to gain trust, earn respect, and form an unbreakable family team.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • Great teams (and families) are not made by who is on them, but how they operate.
  • It’s up to the leader (the father) to create a space where everyone feels like they can speak up.
  • Communication is the main part of the planning process. You need the team’s contributions.
  • We can unwittingly create silence. We have to break that down and develop an environment of psychological safety.
  • Each member gets equal input. Do not let a few dominate.
  • Teammates must be in tune with each other’s emotions and needs to be successful.
  • Before enforcing accountability, make it clear what kids have to be accountable for.
  • Autonomy—we want kids to take initiative. We establish what we want them to do and why we want them to do it. Then we let them tell us how.
  • What to do when you’ve blown up at your kids
  • Why we must apply the same mindset to times of calm as to times of chaos
  • How to regain trust and respect from your wife and/or family when you’ve lost it
  • How to reestablish leadership when you’ve given it up
  • How to execute even when you’re feeling fear
  • How to define and enforce codes of behavior

Reprogram Your Brain for Success

Reprogram Your Brain for Success


You want to live up to your full potential, but something always holds you back. Fears, insecurities, and false identities keep you from living bigger. These issues are difficult to access because they lurk deep in your unconscious. Today we talk about how to reprogram your brain for success so that you can stop playing small and live as the best version of yourself.

Jeff Forrester is a Dad Edge Alliance member and the author of Unleashed Potential: Simple Steps to Be the Best Version of Yourself. He shares 4 simple steps that you can use every day to stop the negative cycles that are sabotaging your life and replace them with positive habits that will reprogram your brain for success.

Unleashed Potential

Have you ever wanted more out of your career or life, but just weren’t sure where to start? Through constant learning and self-evaluation over the last 30 years Jeff shares simple steps he took to start to unleash his potential. Inside, you will discover powerful, yet simple steps to becoming the best version of you, like:

  • Understand Yourself – identifying strengths and weaknesses
  • Importance of Communication – internal and external communication
  • Developing Yourself – importance of coaches, mentors, tribes, and a confidante
  • Setting the Proper Course – setting BIG life goals, strategies, and tactics

Jeff shares real-life stories to assist in making a connection with you and how you can find your way to unleashing your potential. It all begins with self-awareness, being vulnerable, and being confident in who you are. It is scary but incredibly powerful.

The next step to unleashing your potential revolves around how you speak to yourself and others. How you communicate with yourself is often overlooked and changing how you speak to yourself internally and externally will impact your life.

Third step is the importance of not delegating your professional and personal development to other people but being the driving force behind it. Self-learning is not the only critical aspect in development but also taking advantage of coaches, mentors, tribes, and a confidante.

The fourth and final step is setting the proper course. You will hear specifics on setting BIG goals and the importance of setting proper strategies, and tactics to accomplish more than you have in the past.

There is never a finish line to unleashing your potential because every day we should be striving to learn and grow, and these 4 areas can become a way of life for you just like they have for Jeff.

What You’ll Learn

  • We often build ourselves up as who we think we are supposed to be
  • Drilling down to who you really are and accepting it
  • How to confront your low self-esteem
  • It’s not okay to beat yourself up.
  • In self-defense, we judge ourselves before other people have a chance to judge us.
  • How to stop our kids from avoiding failure
  • How to reprogram your brain for success with counteractive messages
  • How to train your brain to stop negative ruminating thoughts
  • Your unconscious dictates your habits.
  • The more vulnerable you are, the more power you take away from that which traps you.
  • Do not try to handle everything yourself and hold the stress in.
  • What it’s like to choose your wife as a confidante
  • The difference between entering friendships with an agenda and making friends in a genuine manner

Our biggest regrets in life happen
when we’ve lost our patience. 

Stop Reacting and Start Living

Virtual Men’s Groups: What Happens Inside


What happens in virtual men’s groups? How would joining an online group for men take your life to the next level?

Isolation is a serious problem for men already, and during this time of social distancing, it’s more important than ever to invest in our mental and physical wellbeing.

Today we are giving you a sneak peek behind the Dad Edge Alliance. This is NOT our usual Q&A with an expert, but an actual members-only meeting with real dads.

These men get real about actively designing the lives they dream of, forging amazing connections with their wives and kids, and battling their worst enemy—themselves.

They talk about how being among a group of likeminded men with similar goals helps challenge and inspire them, keeps them accountable, and pushes them to do things they never thought they were capable of.

‘Isolation is the enemy of excellence.’ – Aaron Walker
