ep13: "Parenting Style" w/ Sean Ryan.
Sean and I have been friends for a few years now. We met on the basketball court, he is an original Y Baller, our 6am basketball group. He’s the responsible consistent guy in the group, always stretching before and after games and stays in fantastic shape. It’s always a good day when Sean is around, he is always calm and supportive but most of all he acts as if he likes my super long winded stories. I am excited to hear what Sean has to share about his parenting style.

ep12: "Balancing Fatherhood and Career" w/ Rabu Gary.
Today I have the pleasure of interviewing, quite possibly, “ The Busiest Man Alive”. That was one of the many well earned nicknames for my good friend Mr. Rabu Gary. In college Rabu was always on the go and not much has changed over the last 20 plus years. However, unlike college where there was only himself to consider, now Mr. Gary is a very successful family man and entrepreneur. I’m excited to hear how he manages the ever elusive work life balance.
