Of our three core values in FRD, Authentic Curiosity is at the top of the list.
One thing I love about our community is that members have deep wisdom, while remaining wise enough to know there’s more to learn.
They have an insatiable appetite for resources that help them be more present and powerful at home.
When I learned about the questions my buddy Blake started asking about thriving in his marriage, and succeeding as a dad, I needed to have a longer conversation on the podcast.
Let’s rewind for a second and set the stage here…
Before Blake even moved in with his wife, he started asking around, “How do you live with a woman?”
Some answers were lackluster… Stuff like “Don’t leave the toilet seat up”, but he was looking for more than platitudes.
One day, a guy dropped some wisdom when he said…
WAKE UP READY.
Wake up with intention and positive anticipation so that you don’t miss a thing.
Eventually the question evolved to “How do you love a woman?”
And then questions about fatherhood.
Our interview is fun, and filled with brilliance.
In this chat, we talk about “bro-countability” meetings, unexpected appreciation, how to accept and love your partner for who she is every day, and so much more!

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.
