In this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by Tim Meuchel. We hit on a bunch of topics, ranging from what it means to show up for your family during adversity and how your kids see you during these times; to lessons in parenting leadership, and understanding when it makes the most sense to take a step back and not be in control all of the time.
- Scheduling personal first, and everything else next
- Handling seasons of adversity for fathers
- Why the movie Instant Family was a huge hit
- When leaders (dads) need to step back
- The importance of defining terms with kids
- “Life is MESSY, life is HARD, and sometimes you just have to step back and look at what you have, instead of what you don’t.” – Tim Meuchel
- “You are your own worst critique” – Tim Meuchel
- “I have to tell myself sometimes that I’m their PARENT not their FRIEND” – Tim Meuchel
- Follow on Twitter, Insta, Facebook
- Instant Family
- The Millionaire Fastlane by MJ DeMarco
ABOUT THE GUEST
Tim Meuchel is the creator, best selling author, and podcast host of The 10 Factor.
He’s a graduate engineer from Virginia Tech, and spent 12 years in the private sector managing large commercial construction projects from coast-to-coast for a 100-year old company. Tim’s plan from day 1 was to retire with that company until a series of events several years later led him to start considering other options.
Tim kept his job but started discussing an exit strategy with his wife and circle of influence. These discussions continued for several more years until eventually he secured a contractor’s license and started a side business in 2007.
