Today, we’re exploring what it means to live adventurously. Mike explains why adventure isn’t just about scaling the tallest peaks. It’s also found in the small journeys and getaways with family and friends that enrich our lives.

Mike reveals how adventures shape us into better partners, parents, and friends. He lays out a roadmap for those looking to break free from comfort, embrace risks, and shake off the monotony of daily life. As a mini cliffhanger (pardon the pun), you also won’t want to miss his harrowing experience dealing with altitude sickness during a climb in Ecuador and his advice on ensuring everyone’s safety while going on shared adventures.

“One of the most amazing aspects of a true adventure is the bond you share with the people that are with you on that adventure.” - Mike Brcic Share on X “Life’s too short to compromise on the key aspects of our lives.” - Mike Brcic Share on X “I distill my job as a parent to two things.

Want to hang out with other FRDs in Austin? Watch this 3-min video from our last Front Row Dads Live event. Tickets avaiable now for December’s event. 

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

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.
