How to Become a Game Changing Dad

How to Become a Game Changing Dad

We only get one chance to be a dad, but life gets busy and sometimes we barely have time to think about what we’re doing. It’s easy to get wrapped up in work and shuttling kids off to sports and activities without mindfully taking action to level up when we can.

Today we have Dad Edge Alliance member Ray Matz on the show. He is the author of Game Changing Dads: Get Off The Bench and Into The Game! He is a husband and a father to three who talks about what we can do to get off the bench and take small actions for big improvements in our roles as fathers, husbands, and leaders.

'The tough guy to me is the guy who puts his guard down and listens.' —@RayMatz #dads #men #fathers #parenting #fatherhood Click To Tweet

How Generosity Breeds Success with Tuan Nguyen

How Generosity Breeds Success with Tuan Nguyen

If you were a successful start-up entrepreneur and sold your company for millions, what would you do with the money? Build your dream home? Buy the sports car you always wanted? Pay for your kids’ college?

Tuan Nguyen sold his first company for millions. Then he gave the money away.

Tuan Nguyen is the host of the Biz Dad podcast, a TEDx speaker, and an extreme philanthropist. Tuan has an incredible story that begins as an infant escaping Vietnam, to growing up poor in an immigrant family in Canada, to his current life of sharing his wealth and his spirit.

Tuan continues to build successful businesses and give the money away to charity. In this episode, he talks about how generosity breeds success and what impact our generosity has on our kids.

'If I build something that makes me millions, great. If not, that's okay also. I still went for what I believed was right and my kids see that.' – Tuan Nguyen #dads #fathers #entrepreneurs #leadership Click To Tweet

Tuan Nguyen’s Story

Tuan’s parents fled Vietnam in 1975 just before it was taken over. He drifted in the seas with his parents at only twenty days old. He became so still and quiet, his mother thought she was carrying a dead infant.

Miraculously, a US aircraft carrier came by and picked them up just in time. They brought him to Hawaii and saved Tuan’s fragile life. He has physiological problems to this day, but keeps fit and healthy so his body won’t deteriorate.

Tuan’s family moved to Canada and started a new life in a completely foreign culture. He grew up speaking French, but his parents never learned the new language so he often served as the family negotiator and translator as a kid. He remembers most vividly how his mom was always a ball of positive energy and even though they had little to give, she taught him how to show appreciation.

Tuan’s first dream was to go to medical school because medicine is what saved his life, but at the last minute he had a change of heart. He had been doing lots of volunteer work and wanted to give back to organizations like the ones he needed throughout his challenging life. He withdrew from medical school to start his first online directory company that eventually sold for millions.

'My kids watch me stress out every now and then, but they also watch me never give up.'– Tuan Nguyen #dads #fathers #entrepreneurs #leadership Click To Tweet
