The Dad Life With Marc Jeffrey, Part 2 :: A Conversation About The Life of Being A Dad, Real Fatherhood, & and Parenting with Marc Jeffrey (Leader of the #DadLife & CEO of The Legacy Consulting Group)
The entire month of June, we are focused on Dads and Fatherhood! It is a TRUE statement when Pope John XXIII said, “It is easier for a Father to have children than for children to have a real father.” So all of this month, we are focusing on Dads, Fathers, Fatherhood, and parenting from the angle of the Dad. We believe that Dads often don’t get their credit and are their impact is often misunderstood. Our host Christopher J Harris, continues the month-long conversation with Mr. Marc Jeffrey, who’s the lead for The Dad Life Brand and CEO of Legacy Consulting Group. Feeling like a living room conversation, Marc spoke very straightforward about his journey and growth into Fatherhood, his daily navigation of being a dad, and offered a number of great and simple tools that everyone would benefit from. Although it’s past, Happy Father’s Day to all of the Men out there!
(By the way: We focused on Mom’s for the month of May. Go check out our previous episodes!)
