Sevan Matossian - The King of Content and Parenting Expert

If I had all the time in the world, this conversation would have gone on forever. Sevan has such an incredible understanding of raising happy and free children that truly resonated with me. Our role as parents is to provide an environment that allows our young people to learn to be self-sufficient while protecting them from the mountain lions that may seek to attack while they're down. It's not our job to always pick the child back up, we allow them to learn that they are capable of doing it themselves. Our job is handling the things they're not capable of yet and allow them to expand their level of capability themselves. That's how they learn self-confidence. That's where self-awareness is cultivated. SEVAN MATOSSIAN Today's guest is Sevan Matossian. Sevan has been involved in CrossFit Media since the start of CrossFit itself. He is a producer and director, known for Our House (2003), Pulling John (2009), and Every Second Counts: The Story of the 2008 CrossFit Games (2009). Sevan is a content king. From creating tremendous value for the CrossFit community to now creating content with his three young sons on fitness, running a personal podcast, and a podcast with himself, Josh Bridges, and Mat Fraser.
