Taking Action as the Head of Your Family


As the head of your family, nothing changes if you don’t take action. If you want to lose weight, grow in your job or business, or have deeper relationships with your wife and kids, it’s up to you to make it happen.

Today we have everyday dad, Mark, on the show. He has been married for thirteen years and has two boys. He joined The Dad Edge Alliance two months ago and shares his insights on how taking action as the head of your family can make your life more organized, fun, and fulfilling.

  • How to be proactive as a dad and address issues before they grow out of hand

Marriage Partnership

Marriage Partnership in Action

Last month for Thursday Throwdown, we covered the 4 Elements of a Legendary Marriage with Lance Salazar. Over 4 weeks, he broke it down into: The Individual, The Partnership, Becoming Friends, and Becoming Lovers. Today I’m going to talk about the marriage partnership in action.

I applied a quasi business-like approach to working with my wife to make sure we were on the same page when it came to responsibilities. This included a weekly meeting where we “frontloaded” and planned everything in advance, from who was taking the kids to school to what we were having for dinner. We even synchronized our schedule in a Google calendar. Is it worth doing all this tedious planning? How does it benefit our marriage?

Listen and find out!

How to Optimize The Structure of Work, Family, and Fulfillment with Dave Hollis

Can work-life balance ever be achieved?

Our guest today is Dave Hollis, and he says work-life balance is unattainable. There is no such thing because our lives constantly fluctuate. Sometimes, our kids need us. At other times, our marriage requires more attention. Maybe our health has been neglected and we need to focus on taking care of our bodies. There will also be points in our lives where work demands all of our energy. Life is unpredictable and we must be prepared to adapt.

We are stoked to have Dave Hollis on The Dad Edge. Dave worked for Disney for 17 years selling movies like Star Wars and The Avengers to theaters, and he recently left his position to help his wife Rachel develop her business. Dave tells us why he quit what most people would consider a dream job and how he and his wife grow their media company while raising four kids. He also talks about their technique called ‘frontloading’ to optimize the structure of work, family, and fulfillment for an incredible life.

'Your kids only have one experience that they know is normal—the one you create for them. They are watching us pursue our dreams ... we are modeling for them.'—Dave Hollis #parenting #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #dadlife Click To Tweet

 

Dave Hollis

Dave is the father of four and married to NY Times Bestselling Author, Rachel Hollis. She began with an event planning business that morphed in to a lifestyle blog, which eventually became Chic Media. Dave was in the sales side of the movie business. He made lots of money, but he didn’t feel like he was challenged. He made the bold choice to leave his job to help Rachel scale up her business. They moved from the outskirts of LA to a small town in Texas where they publish content, podcasts, and books. They also organize events and have launched a line of apparel and other products. Dave says they still like each other after six months of working together, but they have their communication and planning down to a science. They call it ‘frontloading’ and it is how they structure their lives for greatness.

'You can find every excuse why you’re not currently having the intimate relationship you want with your spouse.'—Dave Hollis #relationships #marriage #intimacy #communication Click To Tweet

'You will not be the single force that shapes the way your child develops into an adult.'—Dave Hollis #parenting #helicopterparenting #dads #fathers #fatherhood Click To Tweet
