Brad Johnson’s taking over as host for episode 400 and interviewing the one and only, Michael Hyatt. You’ll quickly realize that both of these Dad’s never stop learning and are on a mission to uncover the secrets to great parenting and crafting a rewarding family life.
Michael’s early career in the publishing business had some huge wins, but at what cost? Despite making more money than ever before, he was completely failing his family. His wife Gail felt like a single mother raising 5 daughters. It was a difficult pill to swallow, but that convo lead to a complete 180 in the way Michael showed up for his family from that point forward.
In this episode, you’ll learn why it’s possible to win in both business and life — and Michael’s strategies for making it possible.

- Having “double wins” in life
- Marry someone who calls out your BS
- Best gift for your kids? A healthy marriage
- The question that could save your marriage

FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.
Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.
Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you?
In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values)
If you’re reading this, you want to grow. Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
