EP 408 Phillip McMillan: Raising Boys with Character, and How to Create Meaningful Connection with your Kids

Phillip McMillan is here today to explore with Ned the delicate balance between career ambitions and family life. As Phillip shares his personal experiences—from overcoming corporate challenges to attending baseball games and making sure he's present for his children—he explains why it’s so important to be there for your kids, physically present. Phillip beautifully weaves together stories of gates not just as barriers but as openings to richer, lifetime memories with one's children. This conversation provides a lot of wisdom and anyone looking to deepen their familial connections while navigating the complexities of modern life should tune in. You’ll be encouraged to create spaces in their lives where true bonds can flourish. Listen now to discover how embracing these roles can transform everyday challenges into opportunities for growth and joy within the family unit.



Each week Ned sits down with a dad and asks him to open up his field notes and share with other men who find themselves on the Adventure of Fatherhood.
