Welcome to Fathership Scott Doucet here. I'm pretty much living the life of my dreams. I married the girl of my dreams, I have my dream car, I live in a house in my hometown that I own. I have a daughter and a son on the way and at the time of recording this trailer Things could not be more complicated Because as it turns out, when you achieve the life of your dreams, the work isn't over. You now have to work hard to maintain those dreams, to nurture the relationships you build, to grow beyond the person you are right now, to be the person who deserves to hang on to everything you've worked to accomplish, and to be the person who can truly enjoy everyone and everything around them. That is now the person I am trying to grow to be. This is that Journey. The Fathership Podcast is all about growing into the role of dad, growing into the role of husband, growing into the role of home owner, growing into the role of community leader and being the best business owner I can possibly be. It's not going to be easy. Quite frankly, this is the hardest thing I'm ever going to do. It won't only be the victories we share. We'll be talking about the struggles, the addictions and the things we have to overcome. I'll be talking to Dads, Moms, and experts from around the globe about their experiences with fatherhood, parenting, relationships and life in order to grow and to help you grow into the best versions of ourselves we can possibly be. Join us.

2020 Aug 2025m 24s
How do you reduce stress and find happiness in those moments where life feels like a grind? How do you chill out and still get everything done? As Dads, we end up with a lot on our plate.

Even when we get everything done, often we’re left feeling drained, depleted or burned out. While we strive to do as much as we can to make the lives of those around us better, we can often forget to provide some basic care and maintenance to ourselves. In this episode of Fathership, I welcome Josh MacKenzie back to the show to answer a question from a member of Fathership: The Knighthood in an effort to unpack and deploy strategies and tactics to better manage the stress in your daily grind.

F021 The Purpose of a Father - Provision
2020 Jul 3017m 2s
Once upon a time it was considered “enough” for a man to make money, come home and preside over the home he successfully funded. In today’s world, women are more than capable of funding themselves, which leaves a lot of modern men struggling to find out where they fit in as natural providers. If money is no longer an issue, it all comes down to how you make the people in your life feel, and trust me when I say that it’s always been important. A man’s role within the family unit is changing, and as a result: the man has to change with it. Whether or not you’re the primary earner for your family, there are other things to consider where provision is concerned. Can you provide access to things they can’t? Can you do so with a smile on your face? Can you be the provider of happiness, fun and security? These are just a few of the things that are covered in today’s episode. If you’re wondering where you can do a better job as the provider for your family, click play and tune in. Your family will thank you, dad.
