080 Interview with Tom Schwab

Tom Schwab is a proud father of 4 ranging from 16 to 28 years old. He’s also a fairly new grand-dad. He brings on an awesome mix of his own experience mixed with insights that he sees now in his son-in-law.

Among many other topics, here’s some of my favorite ones that we get into in today’s show:

  • The mistake he made as a new dad and how the same thing plays out with his son-in-law
  • Importance of setting boundaries with extended family and grandparents.
  • His biggest fear before becoming a new dad – not being enough. And how to overcome it.
  • Importance of having a sense of humor and surrounding yourself with other awesome/involved dads.
  • Challenges of being away (deployed) for long stretches of time and how to overcome these.
  • Setting priorities – there are certain things you can ONLY do in certain stages of life. Being a new dad and involved is one of them.

Tune in and enjoy the show!
