082 Interview with Ron Geer - facing challenges as a parent

Ron is a father of three amazing kids and husband to an amazing woman, Kristy. When they adopted their little girl they soon discovered that she has special needs. It took him time to own his new reality, but eventually he did.

He believes that some of life's greatest accomplishments can only be achieved from pushing through obstacles and barriers.

It's life's challenging moments that shape our character and define who we are; a lesson he learned from adopting their little girl.

Ron emphasizes the importance of planning and states that without a plan, we spend our lives drifting from one comfort to the next, avoiding the very obstacles that can grow us into our full potential.

In addition to that we talked about:

  • How his life changed when he first became a dad.
  • Their family’s adoption story.
  • Lessons he learned from his experience and from his little girl.
  • How to deal with challenges and challenging times in parenthood.
  • Changes in his priorities from money/career to relationships in his life.

Ron’s story is very inspirational to all dads – new and more seasoned fathers alike!

So, tune in!
