What’s up fellas? I can’t even tell you how pumped I am to share this conversation with you. Today’s guest is a legit badass businessman, Dan Martell.

We talked about his new book and how entrepreneurs can buy back their time, meaningful ways to talk to your kids to praise them for their effort, tell them what you love about them and eliminate entitlement and much more.

For those that don’t know, Dan is a serial entrepreneur, husband, father of two incredible boys, ironman athlete, best-selling author, and coach to over 1000+ SaaS founders, including clients like ClickFunnels, Proposify, and Carrot.

He successfully exited 3 tech companies within 10 years. His new book, Buy Back Your Time, might be the most important book ever written for entrepreneurs, and especially our community at Front Row Dads. If that sounds like hyperbole, I’m not even joking. It’s that good. So let’s get right to it!

Here are my favorite moments:

  • The Buyback Principle: You don’t hire people to grow your business. You hire people to buy back your time.
  • It’s better if you allow things to happen with your kids. Let them figure things out, make mistakes and help them to fix them. Don’t treat them like babies forever.
  • The great things that happen when we talk to our kids about real stuff instead of just asking about how their day was.
“Allow the world to be hard on your kids. Let the world do what it needs to do, and let them live with that.” - @danmartell Share on X “I will slow down and be present. I will allow the world to forge my children's character. I will not purposely create a scenario where they misunderstand the level of privilege that we have.” - @danmartell Share on X
