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.

Releasing Emotions in Front of the Kids

Releasing Emotions Safely in Front of the Kids

No matter how hard we try to separate home life from our jobs, work stress affects our families. Children pick up on all our cues and can become frightened if they see us behaving in ways they don’t understand. How do we release emotions safely in front of the kids?

Today we have Dad Edge Alliance member Jon McKinney on the show. He is an officer in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and deals with intense emotions and extreme stress on a daily basis. As a single dad, he has his own challenges to contend with. And as a cop, he also has to help resolve other people’s personal problems.

Jon gives us an intimate look at how he demonstrates bravery, perseverance, and resilience to his kids while also showing them that it’s okay to breakdown, let your emotions out, and share them with other people.

'Finding ways to leak out emotion in a healthy manner is safe, it’s okay, and it’s part of life.'—Jon McKinney #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #manhood #stress Click To Tweet

Work-Life Balance Advice from a Kid

Work-Life Balance Advice from a Kid


Many of us are so focused on providing for our family and securing our financial future that we fail to spend enough quality time with the people that matter. Sometimes we don’t realize how much our attention means to our spouses and kids. After work, we might only get a few hours with our families. What’s the best way to spend what little time we have with them?

In this short episode, I talk to my son Ethan who gives us a kid’s perspective on just how important time with dad is. He also shares simple, straightforward advice for hardworking dads on how to achieve work-life balance and prioritize their free time with their families.

Our kids and our wives spell the word 'love' T-I-M-E. #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #parenting #dadlife Click To Tweet

How to Optimize the 5 Dimensions of Manhood

How to Optimize the 5 Dimensions of Manhood


As men and providers, we have a tendency to attach our identity to our work. We spend so much of our time and energy making a living and building our career or business, that it’s hard to see ourselves outside that role. But we are not one dimensional men.

There are many dimensions to who we are and neglecting these other parts of our life creates imbalance and a sense of incompleteness. In this episode, I go over how to optimize five main dimensions of manhood.

What You’ll Learn

  • The 5 Dimensions of Manhood and how to master all of them.
    • 1 – Health (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual)
    • 2 – Work
    • 3 – Relationship with spouse/significant other
    • 4- Relationship with children
    • 5- Finances
  • Why we should surround ourselves with other men who have what we want

Intentional Living as a Family

Intentional Living as a Family


If you could improve just one part of your family life, what would it be? As the head of our households, we often feel maxed out and have nothing left to give during our downtime. What if you knew that with a few small changes, you can master intentional living as a family and completely change the atmosphere of your home life?

In today’s show, we have Chris from our Dad Edge Alliance. He grew up in LA hanging out with gang members. Now he’s a husband and a dad to a son and a daughter. He tells us how he disconnects from work and makes every day special for his family.

How can you be intentional with commitments to your family? In this episode, we give dads a list of hacks that will instantly change the atmosphere of your home life! #dads #men #fathers #dadlife Click To Tweet
