DTD #42: How to Find Your Way When the World Keeps Telling You No, With Vincent Van Patten Sr.

Vincent Van Patten Sr. has paved his way in the world through perseverance, love, and grit.

On this episode of The Dare to Dream Podcast, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Vinny’s dad, Vincent, to discuss his continual search to find his edge in life.

It was never easy. No heartbreaking defeat could hold him back on his journey to becoming a top twenty-five professional tennis player in the world. From there, Vincent’s story takes various twists and turns that have made him who he is today. The only thing that remained consistent through it all is his ability to keep going when the world told him no.

We discuss:

— Transitioning from a child actor to Rookie of the Year on the professional tennis circuit.

— Creating the biggest home poker game in the world.

— How he came back stronger from every setback.

— His creative process, and passion for writing and filmmaking.

This episode is full of hilarious and inspiring stories you don’t want to miss.
