Hi, Adam Baldock here.
Great to have you with me and whether you have listened to a podcast yet or just come across the site I hope you enjoy what I and the Dads of the World are putting out to you in our interviews.
A Fired Up Dads interview is a relaxed discussion about the challenges of being a Dad.
An inspiring, motivating experience instilling a listeners desire to go forth and achieve, engaging more with their kids and their family.
Fired Up Dads wants to help struggling Dads and Dads in general to be better Dads. We do this through providing opportunity for Dads to learn from the experiences of other Dads and engage in experiences with their children.
Some are suicidal.
Some Dads out there are seriously struggling with the transition to fatherhood and in some cases don’t believe their contribution is valuable. Some are suicidal. If Fired Up Dads can help and inspire just one of these Dads and help them to recognise that a Dads contribution is important to their kids, their family, society and the world in general then we have done our job.
A Fired Up Dads interview is an inspirational interview of approximately 30-35 minutes in length.
We try to touch on challenges, relationships, health, career, balance and things that help like resources and technology etc.
Sometimes we bring health and family experts in to talk specific topics, but mostly we talk to Dads from all walks of life.
The interviews are a chance for the interviewees to share their journey, not only in fatherhood, but in life. Their stories, the lessons within and their triumphs are inspirational. Really firing you up.
The structure of the interview is broken into five sections:
- Detail Round – 7 detail questions focusing on their transition to fatherhood, biggest challenges, balance recreation and proudest moments;
- Power Dads Round – 6 short answer quick questions, looking at things that help them engage with their kids;
- Legacy Question – interviewees are asked what they would tell their children in order for their children to be successful in life;
- Enlighten Question – gives the interviewee a chance to enlighten listeners on what they do for a job, offering an opportunity for the listener to tap into resources unrelated (sometimes related) to being a parent; and
- Inspiration Question – a departing tip or inspirational statement for Dads
I am so glad you have found us here at Fired Up Dads and I hope you enjoy the content.
Don’t wait any longer to be a better Dad – get Fired Up with me, Adam Baldock.
