In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, Larry Hagner shares great stuff about building and living intentionally in the area of relationships, the importance of being ego-free &  planning. He also shares his secrets on how to be a legendary dad and a husband! 

Larry Hagner is the host and creator of the Dad’s Edge Podcast (formerly The Good Dad Project Podcast), featured as one of the top podcasts on iTunes. Its mission is to give you resources to help you be the best you can be so you can enjoy the journey of fatherhood, dad and parenting. He authored the books, “The Dad’s Edge”, and “Daddy Will Always Love and Protect You”.

Larry is also a dynamic speaker who has spoken for several churches, men’s groups, women’s groups, and couples with outstanding reviews.  

This guy grew up without a “father-figure” which store up future problems with patience when he became a father. He thinks he’s the only one struggling with it, and work-life balance. Didn’t know how to handle his kids, spanks them so hard, not showing up his marriage very well, and got all his validation from work. But Larry realized, he’s doing exactly what he said he’s not going to do. He surrendered his ego and learned from his mistakes. 

On the plus side, he considered himself as a project, a dad that needs help. He wanted to learn one thing whether that be better at marriage, better at his kids, more patience, better health, and business. Everything follows that later, he started speaking on group events. 

Larry explains the importance of investing in yourself and in your health, having constant growth, and being open to learning, be humble and ego-free. According to him, it’s really the ego that gets on the way that we can have these amazing relationships. Surrender yourself to create an epic, rich, and fulfilling relationship. Never forget to keep the communication open to understanding what you value, create time in your relationships, time with kids, creating lasting memories with kids and your partner.
