Feeling stuck in the endless cycle of work, family responsibilities, and personal growth?


Many dads find themselves caught in struggling to balance their professional ambitions with the demands of fatherhood. It's a juggle that often leaves little room for self-care, leading to stress and burnout. 


But what if there was a way to break free from this pattern, to find fulfillment in both your career and family life?


In today’s episode, we dive deep into the lives of dads who are also leaders in their fields. Guests, Jeff Evener and Larry Dake, co-authors of "Dads, Leaders, and Father Figures," share their personal journeys of redefining success and finding balance. 


From the birth of a child during the writing of their book to a life-altering health scare, their stories shed light on the pressures men face and the transformative power of vulnerability in leadership.


You’ll learn practical tips for self-care and setting healthy boundaries, strategies for managing the pressures of fatherhood and professional leadership. How to redefine success in alignment with personal values and well-being.


Discover the secrets to being a great dad and a great leader, without sacrificing one for the other.



Stay empowered,
Jen
