It wasn’t very long ago that Chip Franks was taken out on a stretcher in the middle of a conference for entrepreneurs after just having a stroke. As his wife cried and his children were alone in their hotel room, one question consumed his mind: “Did I tell them everything I wanted to tell them?“
This led to him quitting his job to write a book outlining everything he’d want his kids to know if he wasn’t around. The result? Life Lessons From Dad: 101 Ways To Get More Out of Life From Someone Who Loves You – a 685 page handbook for life.
Chip is an entrepreneur at heart – he started early, selling calendars door to door as a child, and went on to build and sell a real estate and property management company after 20 years as a broker. He’s shared stages with Tony Robbins, Peter Diamandis, Lewis Howes, Daymond John, Simon Sinek, and today, he joins the podcast to share life lessons and his practical instructions for how to realize them.
In today’s episode, he joins us to discuss the principles for guiding a family with a life full of joy.
