Honoring Boundaries and Breaking Rules with Andrew Kuhn & Matt Drinkhahn – Part 1

Subscribe and Listen Now

A friend of mine reached out to chat the other day. And as much as I love to chat, I really just wanted to tell them that I had no time. Absolutely none. And that’s hard for me. 

I don’t know about you, but time management and scheduling in my calendar really kicks my ass sometimes.

How do we actually get everything done in our schedules and then have time to be dads? How do we learn to set boundaries around saying no to certain things?

Luckily, we have Andrew Kuhn and ‘Coach’ Matt Drinkhahn on today’s two part episode talking to us about what’s proven to be effective in our calendars, where we fail, and how we learn from that.

These two family men are successful business owners, and members of Front Row Dads. Matt is a coach for recovering perfectionists and highly functioning workaholics, while Andrew is the owner of a real estate investment company—and they’re absolutely killing it.

They teach us about integrity in keeping our commitments, and knowing when to break the rules surrounding the boundaries you’ve made for yourself if something just isn’t working.

You can’t buy time and what takes up that time is important. If you’ve ever struggled with figuring out the ebb and flow of work-life integration, you won’t want to miss today’s episode!

We are in the business of building better families.

While most dads would say that family matters most, the challenge is they feel guilty knowing their careers get the best of them, and their family seems to get the rest of them.

We help Dads become family men with businesses, not businessmen who have families, so they can thrive personally AND professionally.
