As a 3x successful business-owner and founder, my biggest fears about having kids were:
- I would be an absent father
- I would accidentally raise entitled kids
Those two thoughts made me sweat.
I was good at business… but what about being a good father?
What if I messed it up?
I thought maybe my obsessive drive meant I shouldn’t ever have children.
Kids aren’t something you can quit if it goes wrong.
So when my wife Renée fell pregnant, it lit a burning need in me to get good at the one thing I felt afraid of.
I NEEDED to be an authentic and present father for my children. I had to get good at this.
I hired the best mentors, coaches and parenting experts, I took the classes, read the books…
I trained. Hard.
And I’m not perfect. Many of my lessons weren’t taught to me from a book, they were learned from mistakes.
But today I’d like to share a new video with the most valuable lessons I can offer you.

My kids are the biggest blessing that’s ever happened to me.
I wasn’t expecting it… I was so afraid about not giving them the right life that I never stopped to think about how much love and light they would bring into mine.
When Renée got pregnant, we were living in San Francisco and I had just closed a round of $1.6M in funding for my company Clarity.
3 months after the birth of our first son we found out we were having another.
Max and Noah are 11 months apart, and I LOVE my boys with all my heart.
That’s why this video is so important to me.
I’m proud to say I overcame my fears and I am 100% a family man AND an entrepreneur at the same time.
But the only way I got there was by truly living the lessons I discovered and shared in today’s video.
