Are you tired of putting out fires and reacting in your work and maybe even how you parent if you are one? Charlie King shares how you can be a more intentional entrepreneur and parent. He wants to help you respond more to the world around you, instead of feeling like you are constantly reacting to it.
Charlie created Heroic Fatherhood as a way to help coach and mentor fathers who want to be more intentional with their parenting.

“I’m all about supporting dads to live a super empowered life as a way to lead by example for their kids.”
“You get that choice to be able to change your narrative and script it from scratch.”
“If we don’t distinguish who we are in those good times, we won’t be able to draw on that value when we’re facing real challenge.”
“When we spend time with good men, we become better men.”
If you’re feeling stuck, like you don’t have any options or don’t know how to move forward as a dad or an entrepreneur, Charlie suggests these actions to get moving:
1) Acknowledge that you’re stuck, that it’s a thing in your head, and that making a change can break it up.
2) Speak it outside of your head to a mentor, spouse, coworker, or anyone you trust.
3) Bring your awareness to how you get unstuck and make note of that for later instances of the same problem.
