| | EP 320 – John Welbourn the Family Man

Author / Cali Hinzman


John Welbourn is known for a lot of things. He’s America’s number one fan of the hit show “Friends”. He’s been known to drift a rental van…or ten. And this gentle giant finds peace in the art of welding…any Block One Coach will tell you that. But there’s a lot you may not know about the CEO of Power Athlete. When he’s not talking TPS reports by the water cooler with contemporaries like Tait Fletcher [@TaitFletcher], he’s above all else – a family man. Anyone who truly knows John has seen him strive, almost agonize, over being the man every family deserves. This week John talks candidly about his journey into married life, fatherhood, and all of his mistakes and successes along the way. Battle the parenting and relationship bullshit.

If you have kids, are thinking of having kids, are currently or ever were a kid yourself…this week’s episode is for you! John, Luke and Tex talk setting up your wee ones for success in every possible way from optimizing their school enrollment to ensuring they don’t become promiscuous disgraces to the family name. As Luke and Tex do their best to science the shit out of parenting, the actual current father imparts wisdom that could only come from experience. John acknowledges that planning for every possible scenario is a good exercise but that simply being involved, present, and connected is the basis for tackling most challenges as a parent. John says above all else, make sure your relationship with your sig-o is rock solid. It’s up to you and your partner to Hold the Company Line against those tiny tyrants. Listen NOW!
