So much competes for our attention and patience. It feels as though we have to make a choice—family or business. But is it possible to have the best of both?

Today we have Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income back on the show to teach us how to master work life integration. Pat built his large, online business from scratch and now makes over 200K a month in gross sales. He helps people all over the world improve their lives, all while being an amazing husband and father of two.

You will walk away from this episode with simple, powerful ways to scale your business and spend more time with your family. You’ve only got one life. Make it count!

You get the result you want or the lesson you needed. Either way it’s going to be a win.

Pat Flynn

Pat Flynn is a beloved thought leader in the areas of online entrepreneurship, digital marketing, and lifestyle businesses. He is routinely celebrated for his transparent leadership style and authentic principles. Pat overcame career adversity at an early age by finding his own path and true passion. Despite his success in business, Pat’s greatest joys are spending time with his family and friends as well as helping inspire and educate others on how to succeed with their own entrepreneurial careers.

Pat has been featured in The New York Times and Forbes Magazine for his accomplishments, and has recently been enjoying talking about his story and business strategies in front of large crowds at various conferences and events all around the world. His top-ranked business podcast, The Smart Passive Income Podcast, has earned over 25 million downloads and continues to inspire people as they work through their online business journey today.

Superfans: The Easy Way to Stand Out, Grow Your Tribe, And Build a Successful Business

The magical moments that turn your followers into fans.

Customers, followers, subscribers.

It’s easy to just look at the numbers. How many likes? How many purchases? How many email subscribers?

But as entrepreneurs, we have to remember that there are people behind all that data. People who are looking to us to be a leader, to give advice, and to care. They are looking for trustworthy tools and resources, and for someone to help them to achieve their goals. In this dog-eat-dog world, these are the people who are looking for someone who they can trust, and who they know have their best interests in mind.

These are the people, if you connect with them in the right way, who will become Superfans.

You don’t need to change the entire world to build a successful business; you just need to change someone’s world.

People don’t become superfans the moment they find you. They become superfans because of the magical moments you create for them over time.

This book will help you do just that.

Own Your Career, Own Your Life with Andy Storch

Would you believe that 82% of men are unhappy with what they do for a living? How tragic is it that so many of us are letting the days slip away in misery? How can we find work that both makes us come alive and also helps us provide the life we want for our families?

If you’re feeling frustrated and trapped, there is good news. It’s never too late to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life, and you’re in the perfect place right now to take the first step to where you truly want to go.

Andy Storch is the author of Own Your Career Own Your Life: Stop Drifting and Take Control of Your Future. He is the host of two podcasts, The Talent Development Hot Seat and the Own Your Career Own Your Life Show and he is going to teach us how to stop waiting for something to happen and create a life that excites us!

Andy Storch

Andy Storch spent years stuck in the wrong career and drifting aimlessly through life. Now, he is a professional coach, consultant, speaker, and author whose life mission is to equip others to live intentionally, love the life they live, and fulfill their true potential.

In his eagerly-anticipated book Own Your Career Own Your Life, you’ll learn how to direct your own career, prepare for the future, and ultimately get back in the driving seat of your own life.

This book is intended to be a practical guide, so it is packed full of useful tips and easily actionable steps, as well as inspirational accounts of real-life events and helpful insights into the author’s own life – including the exact, real-life strategies he has used to design a career and life he loves.

What You’ll Learn

  • Most people are waiting for things to happen to them—the new job, the promotion, the side business, but you have to take the initiative.
  • It’s up to you to wake up and live life intentionally.
  • We often go by default into the careers we are offered, or we pursue what our parents think we should do.
  • Figuring out where you’ve gone wrong is not about guilt and regret. It’s about realizing you’re in the perfect spot to take action, change, and move forward.
  • How to discover what path to choose:
    • Self-awareness—Ask yourself about your strengths and weaknesses?
    • What energizes you?
    • What are your values?
    • Have conversations with friends. What do they perceive your strengths are?
  • Weight the priorities and trade-offs.
  • The smallest thing you can do to get started is to shift your mindset from being a trapped victim to one of ownership. You get to choose.
  • Ask yourself, why do I go to this job I don’t like? Is there a better option?
  • What are you really unhappy about? Can you tweak your existing work to make it better?
  • Find people who are doing what you’d like to do and follow them.
  • How to praise effort in your own life instead of results.
  • Failing doesn’t make you a failure. Are you really afraid of failure, or just what others will think?
  • Most men say, I don’t have time to try something new. Is that really true? Where are you really spending your time?
  • How to integrate home and work life in a healthy way
  • Use your values to set your schedule and boundaries.

How Self-Sacrifice is Hurting You and Others with Cody Jefferson

How Self-Sacrifice is Hurting You and Others with Cody Jefferson


So many men are unhappy, exhausted, and overwhelmed, even when they have a life that would be considered perfect. Why is that?

Today we have mega guest Cody Jefferson on The Dad Edge. Cody is the founder and CEO of Embrace The Lion, and the creator of LION Method, the #1 Group Coaching Program for High-Achieving Men looking to adopt the right support, belief, habits and community to create success in their lives and businesses.

Cody tells us what happens when we are addicted to accomplishment and validation. He teaches us how to get honest with ourselves and step into the reality that is right for us. Most importantly, he tells us how stop sacrificing ourselves on the altar of success and find true fulfillment with our families.

Get ready to embrace the lion within!

“You can only be lead so far as your own awareness.”—Cody Jefferson

Cody Jefferson

Recognized as one of the country’s leading personal and professional coaches for men by Entrepreneur, USA Today and The Today Show, Cody has been walking alongside thousands of entrepreneurs, leaders and professionals on the subjects of personal ownership and development, communication, leadership, and marketing/branding for nearly 2 decades.

He is a nationally-recognized keynote speaker for conferences, colleges, corporations and churches across the country.

He resides in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his wife, 3 kids, 5 french bulldogs and 2 Harleys.

What You’ll Learn

• Cody used to be a “yes man,” and this created a dark dissonance within him
• Men of faith are not immune to the pressure. Cody lost 6 friends in ministry to suicide.
• Many men experience an extreme feeling of lacking something and not being good enough.
• We pile on stuff to compensate for our perceived shortcomings.
• Cody talks about his reliance on alcohol and why he stopped drinking.
• Alcohol is not a problem, but a symptom of the issues you’re not dealing with.
• Cody’s dark times of divorce and the sequential traumatic deaths of family and friends
• Cody’s addiction to outside validation destroyed his health.
• There was a gap in who he felt he was and who he said he was.
• Being all things to all people, you focus on others’ problems instead of your own.
• Prayer is not mental health treatment.
• How to find fulfillment outside of accomplishment.
• 3 Steps to Confronting Your Life
• Realize that you’re not alone. Many men experience this.
• get honest with yourself. Sit down and write your experience.
• Find someone you can be accountable to, who will give you truth to help you step into the reality that is really for you.
• This journey is simple but not easy.
• Cody continues to keep therapists and coaches in his life.
• We must seek out the frameworks to dealing with our problems instead of avoiding them.
• Be held accountable to who you say you want to be. Is the group of friends you have now going to get you to where you want to be?
• Be intentional about the information you consume.
