First, Be Famous At Home with Derek Coburn

A few years ago, I was famous in some circles, but a stranger at home with my family.

I remember my wife made a comment that stung, “Since Tiger (my then 4-year-old son) doesn’t get to see you much, he just hasn’t had the time to build a relationship with you yet.”


Painful, yet true – as a reality check often is.

For years I’d been traveling the world, impacting lives as a keynote speaker, but I was a no show for my #1 audience at home.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about how to first be famous at home, amongst many other things, including…

  • Finding patience
  • Coaching kids
  • Detoxing
  • Afternoon sex
  • And as usual, lots more
