It’s normal to want things to be perfect. We’re all trying to improve and get better as Dads and husbands. But as today’s guest will tell you, it’s about progress, not perfection.

Patrick Cummings is a family man, entrepreneur, coach and mentor. He’s the Founder of PNP strategies and a wealth management advisor with over $500M AUM. He’s also the author of The Family—Business Balancing Act: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Being a Family Man.

In our conversation, we dig into:

  • How to build simple habits to deepen your relationships with loved ones.
  • Raising resilient kids who never give up.
  • Being okay with not being perfect as a dad and spouse.

Here are my favorite moments:

  • Forgiveness is about healing yourself but also allowing others to heal.
  • Committing to facing life’s challenges inspires your kids to do the same.
  • Understanding your spouse’s love language
  • Creating safe spaces for being vulnerable
  • Accepting that you’ll never be a perfect dad.

We are in the business of building better families.

While most dads would say that family matters most, the challenge is they feel guilty knowing their careers get the best of them, and their family seems to get the rest of them.

We help Dads become family men with businesses, not businessmen who have families, so they can thrive personally AND professionally.
