Dad Strength is a community for mindful dads who want to take care of their kids, partners, and themselves

You can take part in our community through one (or all) of the following:



The Dad Strength newsletter shares wisdom gleaned from our community.

Each week, I distill one key piece of wisdom from our discussions and share book recommendations, and pressure-tested health advice. Oh yeah, and a dad joke.

When you sign up, you'll receive three bonus resources:

  • Bottom-Up Habit Design
  • How to Stay Pre-Loaded
  • A Partner's Guide to ADHD

I ask questions and have conversations around the core of what it means to be a dad—from motivation to masculinity.

Out... Whenever they're out.


“Humans are a social species that gets smart by being around other smart people.”
—Edward Glaeser

If you know, you know. And we know. That's why we meet weekly to get support, give support, and discuss aspects of fatherhood and health that are on our minds.

Calls happen every Tuesday at 3 PM Eastern

Where: We meet on Zoom

The first month is free. From there, it's $40/month and you can cancel at any time

Getting started: Before you jump in, read the Dad Strength Manifesto. If our values are aligned, choose one of the options below:


"Dad Strength calls have become a ritual that I look forward to every week. I now have a connection with a group of people that I can ask or receive advice from—and share a commonality with. I feel a bit less lost in this sticky terrain of being a dad.

I am exceedingly grateful for this group."

—Jeremy Glenn


Take care of yourself, man.

Dad Strength retreats give fathers the chance to step back and look at their lives with new perspective. These experiences are built around health, community, and meaning. From fitness to focus, we will give you tools to see your life and your family through the lens of your deepest values.

"This is one of the best things I do for my mental health. My energy, calm, and focus in the days that follow each session are so clear that my wife and I have agreed that my weekly Dad Strength meetings are non-negotiable."

—Mick Higgins
