If you’re anything like me, connecting with you kids can be a real challenge. You know it’s important. You want to connect with them. But, the grind of everyday life and providing for your family and wearing all the “hats” we as men are required to wear can come at a cost.
Today my guest, Jim Sheils, joins us to talk about why we succeed in business but fail in the family, the entrepreneurial lie, how to create moments with your children, implementing what he calls “rhythms” into your life, and how to finally connect with your kids.

Men, I am so excited to share my conversation with my guest and friend, Mr. Jim Sheils.
I met Jim several months ago at a dad’s retreat in Austin and I immediately resonated with his message about being a success on the business front but falling behind on the family front.
This is something I’ve done in the past and I’ve worked really hard at avoiding the same pitfalls I used to fall into of neglecting my children and wife.
He wrote a book called The Family Board Meeting and, after the event, I immediately started implementing the strategies with my three oldest children. I can tell you from experience, that this man knows what he’s talking about and he will help you get closer to your children than you ever have!
Enjoy this one fellas, take notes, and execute on this stuff.

The Iron Council
Men, we are knee-deep in the conversation we’re having in our exlcusive brotherhood, The Iron Council, this month about being the protectors we are called to be.
Each and every month, we identify a new topic we, as men, want to address. We do deep dive into that topic, complete assignments, participate in challenges, and otherwise DO THE WORK required to excel in our lives.
We also focus on what we call our Battle Plans which is a 90-day system for planning out your life, tracking your progress, and accomplishing big things with regards to your health, your wealth, your relationships, and your personal goals.
If you’re looking for the tools to help you up your game or if you think you might just need a good kick in the pants from a band of brothers who have your back, The Iron Council is where you need to be.
You can learn more about what we’re up to and reserve your spot at the table at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.
