Legendary Dads

Kevin Williams

“AAAHHHGG! Why on earth did I think I could be a dad, and build a business on top of that!?! What was I thinking?!” “I’m not sure I have what it takes to do this!”   “I don’t think I can keep it up much longer” Many men who are both dad and entrepreneur are plagued by these thoughts and questions (which often come wrapped in guilt, resentment, and/or shame). Most of the time this struggle is rooted in a poor concept of what a dad is ‘supposed’ to be. So we need to re-invent our concept of what it is to be ‘dad’, because being ‘dad’ isn't what it used to be. Most of us are stuck with the old instruction manual - if we have any manual at all.  Many of us are just faking it, hoping we don’t ruin our kids lives.  Lets walk together on the journey from being a ‘well-behaved’ dad who is doing what he thinks he’s supposed to and hoping its right, to becoming a ‘high performance’ dad who is clear on who he is, where he and his family are going and why. It’s an exciting and challenging process to be sure. And if you put in the work to being a ‘high performance’ dad, you’ll definitely become a Legendary Dad; one who’s legacy can never be taken away from his children and grandchildren. His legacy is a family that has all the resources they need to live the fullest and best life they can. That’s what makes him a family legend for generations! I believe we all have what it takes to give our families everything they need from us - whether its physical, social, mental/emotional, or financial needs, I have learned that we are capable of so much more than we ever dared imagine and that thinking we don’t have what it takes is something we’ve learned - it’s an idea that is only true if you choose to accept it. There are no participation trophies here. If you want the title, you’ll have to do the work. Being a legend doesn’t come easy, but it is absolutely worth the effort! read less

The Balance of Power
Dec 29 2022
The Balance of Power
Episode SummaryIn this episode Kevin explores his journey as it relates to the use of personal power in his marriage and as a Dad. He opens up about questions like:What is personal power?; Is it okay to use power in our family? how can we fix an imbalance of power in a marriage?; Our position and role as Dad comes with great responsibility and has significant impact on our spouse and our children. How we use our personal power and positional power can be a ‘game-changer’.About the Host:Married for over 22 years, and Dad to 4 young kids, Kevin is focused on helping Dads not only be the best they can be, but also leave the best for their family. He believes that everything rises and falls on leadership - and it starts on the inside. Behind this passion for working with Dads, is a heart that cries for the children and wives who are missing out, struggling, or worse, because the men in their lives are not sure that they have what it takes.He knows from hard-won experience that all Dads have what it takes to provide fully and deeply what their family needs from them. “When things are looking rough,” he says, “we have to hold on to the truth that all of us are capable of far more than we realize. We can see this truth when we stand firm, and don't let the storms of life chase us away from those are counting on us.”Kevin encourages those who engage with him to take courage, and embrace the challenge of digging deep within to see their true heart; because everything we do in life - or don’t do - stems from who we are. Connect with Kevin;Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KevinwillspeakTwitter: https://www.twitter.com/kevinwillspeakInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/kevinwillspeakTo book a complimentary session with me: https://calendly.com/kevinwillspeak/freesessionThanks so much for listening to our podcast!

Why Honouring Dad is Important

Why Honouring Dad is Important
Episode SummaryHow do we define an idea like ‘honour’? It may seem clear, but when we look into it, maybe there’s more to it than we realize. In this episode Kevin explore questions around how honour impacts family, and social structure;we are being dishonourable to our leaders;honour empowers rather than controlHonouring others creates an attitude that seeks the best in and for others, rather than seeking to control.

The Mirror of Grief - with Ian Hawkins
Episode SummaryThis week my conversation with Ian Hawkins covers deep lessons about allowing life’s experiences of grief to be catalyst for learning and receiving answers in places you weren’t looking. We also cover; the benefits of journaling;would you miss the big game for a chance to change your life?; how putting yourself first, is loving others; Children it seems, are the mirror we all need. It’s unsettling how much they show is about ourselves. A major lesson Ian shares is in recognizing the body’s signals of grief - and what we can do about it.About Ian Hawkins:Ian Hawkins is the Founder of The Grief Code. Dealing with grief firsthand with the passing of his father back in 2005 planted the seed in Ian to discover what personal security and legacy truly are. This experience was the start of his journey to release the unresolved and unknown grief that was negatively impacting every area of his life. Following his own intuition led him to leave corporate and follow his purpose of creating unity for himself and others.The Grief Code is a divinely guided process that enables every living person to uncover their unresolved and unknown grief and dramatically change their life and the lives of those they love. Thousands of people have now moved from doubt to certainty following this exact process.Access The Grief Code Framework;https://www.ianhawkinscoaching.com/thegriefcodeJoin The Grief Code Network;https://www.facebook.com/groups/1184680498220541/Personal Linkshttps://www.facebook.com/ianhawkins111https://www.facebook.com/ianhawkinscoaching/https://www.instagram.com/ianhawkinscoaching/https://www.linkedin.com/in/ianhawkinscoaching/About Kevin Williams:Married for over 22 years, and Dad to 4 young kids, Kevin is focused on helping Dads not only be the best they can be, but also leave the best for their family.

She also reveals tips for improving conversation, and how money stress limits our ability to share our true selves.About JJ Conway;Lieutenant Colonel (ret) JJ Conway was the first Black to serve as a physicist in the Air Force, despite being told by the Air Force “Blacks can’t do physics.” She served for 23 years and founded and chaired the Nuclear Threats Community of Interest, one of our Nations’ top technical bodies comprised of 17 different agencies. Although science will always be her first love, JJ became a financial planner after returning from a 6-month military trip to discover her house sold, divorce papers, and over $845,000 debt to her name. Adapting to life as a military single mom, JJ learned how money worked and how to make it work for her quickly yet ethically.
