Dadvengers Podcast Episode 7 – Paul Brunson
It’s Dadvengers Podcast Episode 7 – Paul Brunson. The engaging and talented entrepreneur, TV presenter and hugely influential match maker joins us this week for a fantastic chat about parenting. Paul Brunson is our first international Podcast guest, talking to us from over the pond in Washington DC.
In this incredibly open discussion Paul discussed his path to parenthood, homeschooling, vulnerability in his relationships and how he makes his marriage work. Plus he talked openly about his journey through IVF. It’s refreshing to hear a father talk to candidly and positively about a subject that makes some men doubt their manhood. Paul shared some fantastic advice, kept us on our toes with the stories he tells and discussed how he moved from helping people with their finances to helping them find love – this really is an unmissable episode.
Huge thanks to Paul for joining us and being the first international Dadvenger!
