Their mission is that parenting is hard but their goal is to figure it out before they die. Their podcast is to share their crazy ride in the clown car.
Barry and Krystle Ricks have four kids (ages 8,6,4, and 2). When it comes to parenting, they are EXPERTS at guessing, winging it, and pretending they know what they’re doing.
Barry works full-time as a Marketing Directing for a local business, and Krystle works full-time as a Household Engineer.
Christopher cares about fatherhood and how we can impact our children and our children’s children. The Daditude movement was created from a deeply held, personal belief that there is nothing that can positively impact our world more than great parenting.
Even before his daughter was born, he knew he wanted to impact her development and truly partner with his wife to give their daughter all the tools to lead a strong, stable, and beautiful life. He also wanted the gift of spending valuable time with her, getting to know her and allowing her the chance to truly know her father. Having served nine years as an active duty Marine, he wasn’t necessarily connected to his vulnerability — but he knew to create this relationship with his family, he would have to man up and get in touch with his vulnerable side — and he couldn’t be more grateful that he did. It has allowed him the chance to form a bond with his daughter that has created a powerful connection between them and has showed her that a man doesn’t always have to be about machismo and bravado.
Christopher is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, has an MBA and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership, and 25 years of experience in the military, public, and private sectors. He also volunteers his time as a coach and facilitator for Boot Camp for New Dads — a program created to help men prepare for the adventure of fatherhood. Since becoming a father, he has learned that his gift as a speaker and a coach is best used to help other dads, around the world, become the best fathers they can be by discovering, claiming, and expanding their own unique Daditude.
Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on the phenomenal father, businessman, personal coach, speaker, and writer, Mark Timm, to chat about how he and his wife incorporated what they learned in business and applied it to their family.
For years Mark has been experimenting with innovative ways to leverage his business success to win at home. It all fell into place a few years ago when he incorporated his family into a business and began thinking of his family as the most valuable business in the world.
Since that point the results have been nothing less than staggering for him and for his family.
However, it is important to know that this has not always been the case for them. He spent years challenged by integrating my business life and family life.
There were days that he would make more than 100 decisions in his business with confidence and clarity but he would struggle to make the first three decisions that hit him as he walked into the door of his own home.
He also struggled with his leadership role at home. At work there was a clear structure and chain of command, but at home the structure was fuzzy and the chain of command was anything but clear.
Thankfully, that chaos ended for him and his wife when he discovered a way to bring these two worlds together.
Mark Timm has set up a page exclusively for Life of Dad listeners. He has prepared a FREE eBook and a special Family Meeting Guide that is only available to you as a listener. Click here to get the goods!
