Today’s guest, Jeff Hamaoui, is changing the narrative around aging and navigating the “messy middle” transition in life.
We dive deep into how men can get better at emotions and lead purposeful lives as we hit those midlife seasons. You’ll also learn how the “Sobremesa” is a game-changer for stronger bonds, especially with our kids as we grow older. Plus, the playbook on hosting dinner parties everyone will remember. Let’s get into it!
A Wide-Ranging Conversation Through…
- Enjoying food and the “Sobremesa” magic
- Setting the table to nurture conversation
- What’s your special gift?
- Turning midlife crisis into a calling
- How music improves our wellbeing
- Recognize it, own it and apologize
- The change starts with you
- How men are getting better at feelings
- When winning isn’t winning

Not able to travel? We got you. Join our next online event, built just for kickass dads who know there’s more to learn. FrontRowDads.com/summit
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.
