Meet The Founder Of The Dad Edge

Hey guys, I’m Larry, founder of The Dad Edge.

Half of my childhood without a father figure in my life and the other half with toxic father figures that came and went.  I made one decision as a young boy, and it was that my kids would know who their father was.  I knew firsthand, the devastating effects of growing up without a positive father figure in my life.

When I became a father for the first time in 2006, it became clear that I didn’t have the skills to be the best for my sons.  I was short on patience.  I was quick to anger.  My marriage was mediocre at best. 

I learned quickly that the desire to be a legendary father, man, and husband wasn’t enough.  I had to learn the skills to actually do it. 

Our children are not born with manuals and the Journey of Fatherhood doesn’t necessarily come with a “map.”  

There are challenges, twists, and turns along the way.

As much as we truly enjoy our children and being a father, we tend to internalize our struggles.  When we do that, we get distracted and stressed out.  As a result, we do not enjoy the journey of being a dad and husband as much as we would really like to.

I finally decided in 2015, to start The Dad Edge Podcast and learn the skills from experts to live a legendary life as a husband, father, and man. 

Over the past 6 years, I have interviewed over 700 experts on:  parenting, mindset, patience, communication, intimacy, optimizing health, and the power of community.

I am the proud father of 4 energetic boys.  The husband of my soul mate, Jessica for the past 18 years.  Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows every day.  However, I learned skills to optimize my life as a man, husband, and father.  If you are a lifelong learner and you don’t have this thing figured out…join me and let’s continue to learn together!

Live Legendary!
