Living Your Authentic Life


Are you living your authentic life? What if you have everything that’s supposed to make you happy and you’re still miserable?

On today’s show, we have Dad Edge Alliance member and everyday dad, Josh Long. Josh had a very successful 16-year career that he hated. He was so hungry for significance in his life, that he threw himself into volunteering for his community. He eventually ran for city council and won. Everything looked very admirable on the outside, but inside he was dying.

Josh was overcommitted and stressed. He began to rely on alcohol to cope. His marriage was in crisis, and he started investing emotionally in another woman. He was living a life of quiet desperation, until he took a hard look at what he was giving his time and energy to and realized he was living for the wrong reasons.

Listen to how Josh saved his marriage, became a better father, and started living a life according to his true values.

“We have to rebuild ourselves before we rebuild our marriages.”—Josh Long, The Dad Edge Alliance

How to Surrender Your Ego to Supercharge Your Life

How to Surrender Your Ego to Supercharge Your Life


Are you taking ownership of your business, relationships, health, and future? Or are you blaming things outside yourself for a stagnant life? What is preventing you from living as your best self?

It’s the ego.

Most of us don’t want to admit we don’t have it all figured out. We don’t want people to see that we’re vulnerable. We close ourselves to learning when we’re afraid to ask questions. The ego blocks us from growing.

Today we have an everyday dad on the show to talk about how to drill down to your core values and surrender your ego to supercharge your life.

Using Work to Avoid Home Life

Are You Using Work to Avoid Home Life?


Being a father and husband is full of challenges. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to handle problems at home. We have the urge to get away. It’s easier to keep busy with work and focus on providing rather than wrestling with the day to day issues of family life.

Today’s guest is everyday dad, Jeremy Bennett. He has been married for nineteen years and is the father of two teenage boys. Jeremy is a firefighter who is passionate about his career. Jeremy traveled frequently and became involved in the world of firefighting as a leader. He lived for the adrenaline and action in his life.

As his sons grew up, Jeremy knew he wasn’t present in his role as a father. His way of dealing with tough times was to leave. One day had a wake up call and realized he needed to find a way to balance work and family life. Now he tries to help other young firefighters do the same.

One of the Biggest Mistakes Men Make in Marriage

One of the Biggest Mistakes Men Make in Marriage

In this short episode, I’m going to talk about a huge mistake most men make when it comes to marriage. We do it with the best intentions, believing we are protecting our wives and doing what’s best for them. In reality, we do more damage than we can possibly imagine.

I share a personal experience where I was in danger of losing my marriage because of this one mistake and I’m going to tell you how to avoid it.

Communication is key, even if it's ugly sometimes. #communication #marriage #men #fathers #dads #relationships Click To Tweet

how to approach life as a man and a father

How to Approach Life as a Man and a Father

In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I follow up on episode 100 with Ryan Holiday and his profound insights on how to approach life as a student.

As men and fathers, we want to believe we have everything figured out, but in reality that’s impossible. That’s why it’s important to drop our egos and admit to ourselves, “I don’t know everything, but I’m going to learn as much as I can.”

Once you open yourself to learning and begin to approach life situations as lessons, the more knowledge you acquire, the more confidence you build, and the more fulfilling your life becomes.
