Ep 35. Baseball is Back and so is Intentional Fatherhood with Michael Turner
My guest Michael Turner is a Navy veteran who has served our country around the world, giving him a unique perspective on life and culture. His backstory is one that includes fatherlessness as he was born and raised in a not so nice area of Los Angeles and never knew his biological father. However, Michael overcame the adversity in his early life by earning a college scholarship, worked full-time to put himself through law school, becoming a Harvard Business School alum. When Michael’s two daughters were toddlers, he looked for a book about dads, daughters, and our national pastime. There weren’t any. So, he wrote one, called “Baseball is Back”. The book is a love letter to his girls and baseball, purchased by the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies. It’s received great reviews, including from Major League Baseball’s book blog, and can be purchased on Amazon at Baseball is Back.

Ep 30. Get Out of Your Own Way with Dave Hollis
I’m so excited to share this interview with one of my digital mentors and someone I respect greatly, Dave Hollis. When Dave Hollis’s wife, Rachel, began writing her #1 New York Times bestselling book, Girl, Wash Your Face, he bristled at her transparency and her willingness to talk about such intimate details of their life. But when a looming career funk, a growing drinking problem, and a challenging trek through therapy battered the Disney executive and father of four, Dave began to realize he was letting untruths about himself dictate his life. As he sank to the bottom of his valley, he had to make a choice. Would he push himself out of his comfort zone to become the best man he was capable of being, or would he play it safe and settle for mediocrity? In this interview we unpack some of the many peals found in Get Out of Your Own Way, and Dave tackles topics he once found it difficult to be honest about, things like his struggles with alcohol, problems in his marriage, and his insecurities about being a dad. Dave helps us see our own journeys more clearly as he unpacks the lies he once believed—such as “I Have to Have It All Together,” “Failure Means You’re Weak,” and “If They Doesn’t Need Me, Will They Still Want Me?”—and reveals the tools that helped him change his life. In this episode, Dave offers encouragement, will challenge you, and even provides a few moments where we laugh at ourselves as fathers. Dave points the way for those of us who are, like he was, skeptical of self-help but wanting something more than status quo, and helps us drop bogus ideas about who we are supposed to be and finally start living as who we really are.

When I heard Tom Spiggle‘s story of taking a career risk by starting his own law firm in order to gain control of his time and to be able to be there for his kids I knew he had to be on the show.

Ep 25. Do Something That Scares You. Every Single Day. With Fear Guru Patrick Sweeney
Patrick Sweeney is better known as the “Fear Guru”. In this episode taped live at the Spartan Media Fest in Lake Tahoe, we explore how to help your kids embrace fear and move past it using the “logic brain” rather than the “lizard brain”. Often it starts with a shift in mindset, then actions follow. Those times of change become milestone moments that alter everything and you’re never the same again. That moment came for Patrick Sweeney minutes after almost losing his life against a rare case of Leukemia. For years, Patrick had worked hard building technology companies and earning millions. He’d reached the pinnacle of success, but he wasn’t happy. As a typical over-achiever, Patrick took on the world in his 20’s training for the USA Olympic team in rowing, and then took on the business world in his 30’s and 40’s. Patrick launched, funded and sold multiple companies in the technology space but 75 hour weeks and pushing his body to the limits left him feeling exhausted and unfulfilled. In one moment, Patrick walked away. He’d just fought for his life on an operating table against a rare case of leukemia. In that moment of perspective as he stood outside the hospital, he decided to fight the fear of the unknown and embrace a different future. One that would bring fulfillment, joy and happiness. In that moment, Patrick unlocked a new passion for adventure. As he systematically approached the things he feared and avoided, he unlocked greater levels of success and happiness in his own life. Out of that came the start of a fear framework. Today, he climbs mountains, breaks world records and travels the world speaking on taming fear and unlocking peak performance. His mission: help thousands of people make amazing transformations. From Olympic level athlete turned tech entrepreneur to full time adventurer and fear guru, Patrick Sweeney is a testimony to the power of fear and focus.

Ep 24. Standing Out in Life and Business Through Red Shoes Living with Lonnie Mayne
When Lonnie was just a kid, he remembers hearing the cheers for his pro-wrestling dad rise from the stands. But every time he stepped out of the ring, he’d shake off his Moondog Mayne persona to connect with his fans on a human level. After his father passed away, Lonnie spent his summers traveling with his uncle who was a CEO “turnaround guy” and his personal business mentor. He sat in meetings with him and watched him get the best out of others by treating them like people first and employees or customers second. Over the last few decades, Lonnie has been a technology executive and before that an executive navigating mergers and acquisitions. During the most challenging times, he often asked himself: “How can I turn this noise down and develop the full potential of our people and our organization?” He knew there had to be a more respectful way to have tough conversations, handle company changes, and build team trust and resilience. A more inspired way to get others showing up every day, feeling excited to get to work. A more personalized way to serve customers and stand out from competitors… And he also knew where these changes would have to start: Not with the company, but with the leaders building and inspiring the company culture. To answer all these tough questions, he created a simple, life-changing, and value-driven performance model. It’s called Red Shoes Living and its applications go far beyond the work environment. Listen in on our conversation during Spartan Media Fest as we discuss his role as a father and how Red Shoes Living applies to life, business and parenting.
