Is the education system dropping the ball with our children? Our world is changing at breakneck speed, and as parents, it’s our job to make sure our kids aren’t left behind.

Allow me to introduce you to a couple of awesome humans, Navid Nathoo and Viola Seda. Navid is the Co-Founder of The Knowledge Society (TKS), the world’s first “human accelerator” exposing teens to future-shaping tools like AI, blockchain, and green energy – stuff you don’t find in typical classrooms.

Viola Seda has worked with AI in billion-dollar companies and was part of a team working on a cure for type-2 diabetes using gene therapy and nanotech. The crazy part is, she’s 14 years old!

Some of my favorite moments of the conversation:

  • How schools fail to prepare our kids.
  • Kids can impact the world too!
  • Help them to find their calling, then step aside.
  • Learn more from life’s stumbles.
  • The downside of parental overprotection.
  • Unconditional love to take on the world.

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.
