What You’ll Learn

His wife brings peace. She is his rock, and Ron feels she is the reward for his pursuit to change his life.

Ron’s Chaotic Upbringing

[11:23]

Ron’s father has two children, Ron and his brother, Les. When his parents eventually separated, his father married the babysitter and had another two children. During the honeymoon with his new wife, his father got another woman pregnant.

[13:31]

His dad had a total of six kids and three different wives. Ron grew up witnessing many horrible things and started to smoke weed at as a little kid.

[15:26]

These unsupervised ways of taking drugs became his way of life. He became an alcoholic and a drug addict at 15 years old.

[16:31]

Ron worked to keep himself high all the time. Meanwhile, he was also athletic in various sports and had offers for scholarships. He made sure to not let the two worlds cross with each other.

[17:07]

Ron only started to learn as an adult about integrity. When nobody is looking, is he really doing the right thing? As a child, the only thing that mattered for him was to feel good.

[18:43]

His father died in 1997. He lived a dangerous lifestyle where he was killed by the police.

[20:39]

When kids are young, they look at their father as if he is a god. He grew up realizing what he had been idolizing was not good.

Regrets

[24:24]

Ron feels a tremendous loss. It made him mad and upset for not having the opportunity to be a child.

Living Through Your Children

[29:05]

Ron felt he has not grown up yet. He is reliving his childhood through his children as they are growing. He is enjoying a part of their lives he never had.

[31:23]

When Ron retells his childhood to his kids, he wants them to learn something from it. Since he has lived through the worst, he hopes it helps them understand and to not repeat what he has experienced.

Flipping the Switch

[35:37]

Ron’s mother cut ties with him because of his dysfunctional life. It was the final straw for him, realizing that he had no one to lean on anymore.

[36:21]

It was at that moment where he would either be the biggest loser or he would get sober.

[38:33]

Ron felt that rehabilitation was not for him, and it was at this time he found business. He started working out, getting healthy, feeling good. He found a job and started a small business to save money.

[40:11]

Everybody has this insight to know that when enough is enough and to change their circumstances.

Outlook on Life

[46:29]

Ron learned to set aside his guilt and let go of the past. He treats his experiences as his Medals of Honor, telling the world the wisdom he can offer. He wakes up every single day with a positive frame of mind.

[49:01]

He battles insecurities all day. It was ingrained from his childhood and it is something he has to live with. He goes through his values, anger management skills and ends up exhausted. But Ron emphasizes to be positive no matter what you do.

[51:12]

Ron has an hour of power he calls The Dream Time or active meditation. It is the time where ideas for his next business come up. He makes a list of solutions for problems, finds change, and figures out how to do better.

Living Authentically

[57:13]

Ron does not want to let the people down and he is honest about the fact that he has many things to learn. Even if he can only do meager things for the meantime, Ron has learned that faking does not always work. If you are dumb or ignorant to something, you should never hide it.

Legacy

[01:07:12]

Ron’s eldest daughter is stubborn, hardworking, and a forward-thinker. His youngest son is smart, aloof, and enduring. The middle son is a sponge, a gifted talker, and brave.

[01:10:37]

Ron wants to try everything. He realizes that if he does not start doing things, he will die. He will try anything as long as there is an angle to make money from it.

[01:12:32]

“Live like you are dying.” It’s the motto Ron lives by. It’s the legacy he wants to leave.

No Excuses Fatherhood with Wes Watson


This show is explicit, and it will be offensive to some listeners. But the message is important. Today’s guest is Wes Watson, and he is not going to sugar-coat his advice. Prepare to hear a lot of f-bombs.

Wes Watson is an ex-convict, motivational speaker, and is the founder of personal coaching firm, Watson Fit, which aims to liberate people from mental prisons to help them achieve their health goals and beyond.

Today, Wes talks about his journey from penitentiary to personal development. He reveals the mindsets and vices that are keeping us stuck. He also teaches us how to exercise self-discipline, practice constructive self-talk, and commit to behaviors that will transform us into the men, husbands, and fathers we want to become.

Are you ready to stop making excuses and start investing in yourself?

What You’ll Learn

Loyal Family

[12:42]

Wes appreciates his family’s loyalty. He is especially grateful for his dad and his work ethic. He adapted from his father how to be committed in anything that he does.

Inspiration as a Life Coach

[14:13]

Wes believes in the saying that “acquire what we admire.” His dad inspired him to be the man he is today, to be a hard worker, and to have a large physique.

Work Ethic

[15:37]

People are what they eat. However, there is a misunderstanding about how to allocate the macronutrients in one’s body properly. Wes’s aim in his program is to help people understand the correct macros. Everything is a test of purpose over pleasure. Therefore, Wes makes sure that there is a deep intention through diet exercise to mindset training.

Motivation

[17:57]

Wes’s aim is for fathers to develop their internal attributes and knowledge with their own intensity and delivery as role models to their children.

[18:48]

Despite Wes’s dad being a hard worker, Wes always felt that they were struggling financially, and his parents weren’t able to conceal that aspect. That’s why Wes felt the need to come up with a way to earn money to pay the bills.

Emotional and Mental State

[22:20]

Foster the body and mind through self-help books and apply quotes to everyday situations, especially in difficult ones.

[22:47]

Reflect as you project while cultivating yourself with a high self-love level and self-worth to see others’ love. Stay diligent and structured as your weakness comes through.

Changing one’s mindset

[30:54]

Wes is a firm believer in reading quotes to change the stream of consciousness. 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class is his go-to reads to develop his mindset.

[44:31]

Seek personal growth by giving up on bad vices, be grateful every day, and focus on putting everything into what you do every day. Find something you love more than your bad habits.

How to Raise a Teen in Today's World

How to Raise a Teen in Today’s World with Marc Fienberg


Navigating the turbulent waters of raising a teenager is different now than when our parents raised us. With technology, they are exposed to so much more than they are ready for. We also are facing new challenges like the pandemic and societal issues.

In this episode, Marc Fienberg is going to teach us how to raise a teen in today’s world. He is the bestselling author of Dad’s Great Advice for Teens and we talk about the tough conversations we need to have with our kids. He tells us why we should encourage our kids to not focus on making us happy.

He also tells us how to get our kids to open up about sex, drugs, and other uncomfortable issues so that they can make the best decisions even when we aren’t around.

You have to change your strategies and reinvent yourself as a parent all the time.

Mark Fienberg

It doesn’t matter that Marc Fienberg is an author, movie director, strategy consultant, entrepreneur, owner of The Great Advice Group, husband, and all-around nice guy. What matters is that he is the father of four kids, two of whom are teens. He has served as a life coach to his kids for more than sixteen years, and since none of them have been rushed to the emergency room or spent a night in jail yet, it seems like his Great Advice is working.

Dad’s Great Advice for Teens: Stuff Every Teen Needs to Know About Parents, Friends, Social Media, Drinking, Dating, Relationships, and Finding Happiness

Being a teen ain’t easy. Luckily, Dad’s Great Advice for Teens provides 25 short pieces of unorthodox Great Advice, filled with humor, wisdom, and inspirational quotes, to help teens:

  • Build confidence
  • Make good decisions
  • Stay positive when problems arise
  • Be productive with their time
  • Take action toward their goals
  • Develop close relationships
  • Create new, positive habits
  • Follow their passion
  • Trust their gut
  • Take smart risks

What You’ll Learn

08:00

Marc began writing advice for his own four kids who needed different guidance at different stages. Each would receive their own book of advice on their 13th birthday.

09:21

Marc’s career as a Hollywood director.

13:15

Push kids to find out what makes them happy.

Even though you share your genes with your parents. You don’t share your dreams with your parents.

What is a condom virgin?

No one waits till marriage anymore. Sex is an adult thing to do, because the repercussions are adult. Kids need to know the real consequences of disease and pregnancy.

27:50

How to reconnect with a teen who is drifting away from you.

Marc says the later he stays up with his kids, the more likely they are to share.

As a parent, you will get the most information when you don’t look at them.

34:50

Dealing with the pandemic

Don’t shield your kids from the news. They need to know how serious this is. People are dying.

42:30

How to give kids the tools they need to make good decisions when we’re not with them

Tell your kids to go with their gut. There is science behind the instincts we feel.

Talk to your kids about the bad decisions you’ve made. They can learn vicariously through your mistakes and it also helps them feel like they can be honest with you.

TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL’s Unlikely Journey to Defying All Odds

TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL’s Unlikely Journey to Defying All Odds with Remi Adeleke


Today we have a story unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. Remi Adeleke is a former Navy SEAL, actor, entrepreneur, author, husband and dad. These are huge accomplishments for any man, but once you learn about Remi’s background, you will be astounded.

Beginning life as a son in a wealthy, royal Nigerian family and almost ending as a drug dealer in The Bronx, Remi Adeleke’s defining moment was his father’s death when he was five years old. Raised by his single mom, Remi was cast into poverty and turned to crime to fill the void of male leadership.

Remi talks about how growing up without a father impacted his journey and how he is is living proof that even when things seem hopeless, it’s possible to transform and live a life beyond imagining.

“Every boy is instinctively looking for father—to affirm us, to guide us, to teach us.” Remi Adeleke

Remi Adeleke

Remi was born into riches and wealth. His dad was the firstborn son of a Yoruba chief who had nine wives. His father went on to study in London and became a well-known engineer and entrepreneur in Nigeria. His biggest project was one of the first manmade islands in the world, now known as Banana Island. In 1987, the corrupt Nigerian government stripped his father of the island, robbing him of his largest investment. Shortly after that, his father died. Remi was so young that he didn’t comprehend his father’s death or the impact it would make in his life.

Remi’s American mother brought him and his brother to the US to settle in The Bronx, NY. As they struggled to get by, Remi finally felt the void left by his father’s death. The icons of the hip-hop culture and street lifestyle became Remi’s father figures, and he worked his way from petty stealing to running high level scams that could’ve landed him in federal prison.

After a drug-related death threat, Remi realized he wasn’t going anywhere and decided to act on a long-buried childhood dream of becoming a hero. He went directly to a recruiter’s office where a series of fortunate events led him to his chance of becoming a Navy SEAL.

After the birth of his sons, Remi chose to leave his military career. He knew how deeply his father’s death affected him, and he didn’t want to do that to his family. From there, he pursued a career in speaking and acting.

Remi holds a BS in organizational leadership and a MS in strategic leadership, both from the University of Charleston West Virginia. He now resides in Southern California with his wife, Jessica, and his sons. He wrote his book, Transformed, to show disadvantaged kids and adults that they are capable of defying all odds.

Transformed: A Navy SEAL’s Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds

What are the odds? Statistics tell us that African American males who grow up in a single-parent household are nine times more likely to drop out of high school and twenty times more likely to end up in prison than any other demographic. But what would it take for one young man not only to rise above those statistics but also become a Navy SEAL, actor, entrepreneur, writer, and successful husband and father?

What You’ll Learn

  • How Remi associated everything with the absence of his father
  • How he attributed his survival in the crime life to his dad
  • The positive African American role models in movies who planted the seed in Remi’s mind that he could become a hero too
  • The moment of clarity that brought him to the Navy SEALs
  • His multiple failures during BUDs training
  • The secret to perseverance: having a deep-rooted emotional reason why he is doing what he is doing
  • How superficial reasons turn adversity into a bad idea, giving you excuses to start looking for a plan B
  • The inspiration and purpose of his book, Transformed
  • The unique challenges of writing a book
  • What Remi feels is most important about his role as a father
  • Remi’s motivation to be a good role model
  • How he wants his kids to honor women and how he’s had to set the example
  • Why love is not just a word, it’s an action.
  • How he knows the massive potential of his kids
  • How much farther he may have come with a father’s guidance
  • Teaching kids to hone their good qualities and exorcise the bad qualities
  • How his military intelligence experience translates to his life
  • Communication tips with his wife
  • His daily physical, mental, and spiritual self-care routine
  • His physical limitations due to injuries and how he gets past them
  • Advice for men who always put themselves last

Breaking the Addiction Mindset

Breaking the Addiction Mindset

What’s your vice? What relieves your stress? What do you turn to when times get tough? Drugs, alcohol, women, validation, gambling, validation, food? Even a healthy habit like working out can be unhealthy if it’s used to avoid people and escape reality.

Addictive behaviors drain our energy, suck our time, and prevent us from connecting with those we love. They keep us from operating at our true potential. This show is about becoming aware of destructive habits and breaking the addiction mindset. No matter what vice you have, today we’ll give you new tools to crush it.

Everyone has a vice. What's yours? Are you ready to crush it? #addiction #vice #porn #drugs #alcohol #badhabits Click To Tweet
