  • What do you thoughts on parenthood?

  • What have you learned on?

  • How have you learned to be a better parent?

  • Andi, how can you keep having a good relationship with your son?

  • You have that conversation, you know.

  • How do you get it to where he still listens to you as well.

  • Great question.

  • By the way, Brassica So I love you.

  • I'm so glad we did this today.

  • I've watched the show forever.

  • But your wonderful man so gifted.

  • So thank you sincerely for having me.

  • Thanks, man.

  • I didn't know if anyone's watching.

  • I don't care.

  • I'm just glad talking, Thio.

  • I hope they are, uh, parent things.

  • The one area where I I constantly knocked myself.

  • I've never been secure.

  • His apparent Always feel like I'm not doing it right.

  • Um, what I have done with my kids to answer your question.

  • The reason I'm close to my Children is I've I've afforded time with them.

  • I don't I think they want time with you, and they want to feel like they're important.

  • And I violated that a lot when they were really young.

  • My wife's constantly.

  • Do you remember when Bella first walked?

  • No.

  • Remember Matt No, I was just not even when I was there, I wasn't there and I changed that when they were pretty young, like 56 years old.

  • I think that what we have in our family, that's pretty special is an amazing mom.

  • Thio cares, for all their needs, were a pretty good team.

  • My wife wanted to be a mom like she really did.

  • That was one of her dreams is when we were little kids.

  • You know, we met when we were real small.

  • So, um, that's worked.

  • But what I have with my kids is my kids are very different.

  • My son eyes much more like his mom is very easy going, Uh, he's just a good boy, A good man, I should say now, but what I have with them is I've done what I said earlier is a leader like they've seen my example.

  • My son was the editor and all my first podcast when they were all just audio.

  • So I had to consume all that content.

  • But I walk the walk like what I'm talking about.

  • I actually do most of the time, and they remind me when I don't and so I think they've seen examples of these things that I teach.

  • I'm really honest with my kids.

  • And what I just I wanted my kids to leave Brian my house with a few things.

  • One was their faith, Like just a foundational faith in their life.

  • Self confidence.

  • Okay, work ethic and the ability to communicate If they could leave those things, I think the ability to do what we're doing right now, you could always be successful in life if you can communicate your thoughts and your ideas, right?

  • And then an unbelievable work ethic.

  • Confidence in their faith.

  • And I feel like those are the things I was constantly trying to reinforce.

  • Their faith, their self confidence.

  • So I'm a big believer in praising them.

  • And and I'm over the top with it every night when Max go to bed too.

  • Is 18 your leader?

  • Your gladiator?

  • You're a champion.

  • You're the greatest of all times.

  • I know, Dad.

  • I'm telling you again, man, you're a leader.

  • Your gladiator.

  • You're a champion.

  • You're the greatest of all time, brother.

  • I tell them that all the time, right?

  • My daughter You're a superstar.

  • You're beautiful.

  • You're so smart.

  • Your daddy's pride and joy.

  • I tell her this every damn day.

  • I pray with them because we're people of faith.

  • So they've seen the exemplify my faith.

  • We pray before meals just so they see that there and then, you know, I'm working on their communication all the time.

  • I make them speak.

  • I make them do book reports to me verbally verbal communication.

  • So those are the tools and then, Hey, man, I could screw it up.

  • One of them could turn out okay.

  • One of them could not.

  • You know, I I don't have any magic crystal ball or anything like that.

  • But I do feel like they've seen me live a decent life.

  • I've worked on those four areas with them and also kind of I've become as they've gotten older.

  • I let them make their choices, you know, instead of making them for them.

  • I'm a big believer.

  • They've gotta learn to make decisions if I keep making them for them or giving them things I know typically.

  • Brian, when I meet the child of someone who's grown up with money ID, usually no, I could tell there's an edge they lack.

  • There's an edge that comes to not growing up with stuff, and I wanted both of my Children somehow to still have that edge about them that you lose when you grow up in relative comfort.

  • And so I was always guarding against them, losing that edge, and I'm not even sure how you do that.

  • But it's something I was intentional and aware of it.

  • I'm not losing that.

  • My son yesterday called me, said, Hey, Dad, just so these got He's got a little golf club business He does on eBay like he's gonna make his own money.

  • When he was really little, my son came home from school one day and he said, Hey, Dad, all the kids like third Grade's told me that we're rich.

  • Are we rich?

  • All this third graders told him.

  • I said, Hey, man, I said, How much money you got?

  • He goes, I got like, $7.

  • I said, Well, then you're not rich.

  • I said, I don't know if Daddy's rich or not, but I know you're definitely not rich with seven bucks.

  • He goes kind of looks at me with those eyes, and I sort of kept that line with him the whole way And so you know, my sons at multiple businesses and my daughter is now working.

  • She's a my daughter is a is a hostess at a Mexican restaurant.

  • She works, man.

  • I want her learning the work, right?

  • So those are the things I've taught him, Brother.

  • I hope I've done a good job.

  • I'm really insecure about parents Think it's all parents are insecure.

  • I hope I did right.

  • How do you teach work ethic?

  • The observance caught not top caught, and also I emphasize the heck out of it.

  • Like back school started eight o'clock.

  • Remember, One day I go, Hey, my brother, it's light it like 6 a.m. I said.

  • I said, I don't know.

  • He was like third on his golf team.

  • I said deep.

  • Do you think the other guy's written balls before school?

  • He goes, No, I go.

  • What do you think it goes?

  • I should probably get up, get balls before school.

  • Sit.

  • Well, I don't know.

  • The whole do things other people aren't willing to do.

  • That would be one of those things.

  • Don't you think he's like, Yeah.

  • So every day my son hits balls before school every day.

  • Just stuff like that.
