S3E18 How Being an Entrepreneur almost ruined his family with Jim Sabellico
Jim Sabellico started his first business at 8, mowing lawns and saw early financial success. Developed an unhealthy definition of success based on purely money and 'things'.  Since he has started and sold a couple businesses, and currently owns a web development & marketing agency, the freelance platform Legiit.com, & a sushi restaurant.   Jim wound up on the brink of divorce and losing everything because he was chasing money and the wrong definition of success, which caused him to really miss most of the first 5 years of his kid's lives.   Jim had a pivotal moment where he shifted everything to redefine what actual success is, showing up for his family and creating an impact and a legacy and impact that will outlive him.   Your host Townsend Russell, founder of 100% Dad, travels America in his custom Rv with his family of 3 boys and wife of 15 years Rhyan. Retired at age 33 after selling his businesses he choose the path that was the most uncommon. Instead of doubling down and feeding his ambition and ego by starting another business and making more money, he simply stepped back and doubled down on the family. Spending every single day with his wife and kids exploring the country.    Follow those adventures on Instagram and TikTok at @100dad   See what we are up to on the website https://100dad.com/   Find more information and our Tour Schedule on https://100dad.com/tour/   Join 100% Dad for Free https://100dad.ac-page.com/JoinCommunity

John Miller is best selling author of QBQ! The Question Behind the Question. With over a million copies sold and countless speaking engagements, John is well suited to take on the topic of personal accountability.    John created QBQ! The Question Behind the Question. Throughout a decade of selling and facilitating training for executives and managers, he discovered the incredible need for personal accountability. In 1995, he chose to become a keynote speaker, titling his sessions “Personal Accountability and the QBQ!”—even though some people told him that “personal accountability isn’t a topic.”   John and his wife have seven “Millennial” children—six girls and one son. As John likes to say, they achieved four “the homemade way” and in 2000 gained three through adoption. They now have 13 grandchildren!  John and Karen have recently written Raising Accountable Kids.  Email John at John@QBQ.com. Much like Townsend at 100% Dad he responds to every email he gets!   Learn more at QBQ.com   Your host Townsend Russell, founder of 100% Dad, travels America in his custom Rv with his family of 3 boys and wife of 15 years Rhyan.

IronDad stumbled across 100% Dad while we were in Palm Springs, California. I had flown out to Maryland to help a family member with some things and he started blowing up my phone. We got to meet the night I flew back, but unfortunately, I was due to pull out and travel to Arizona the next day. For this interview, we reconnected while I was in Zion National Park in UTAH.    IRONDAD has a really interesting story. He admits his shortcomings and made HUGE changes in his life after hitting the bottom. He had a son who didn't want to see him, a drinking problem, and a weight problem. In an effort to make things right he swung the pendulum completely the other way and his story is quite remarkable.     100% Dad is traveling the country with his family sharing encouragement and wisdom with Dads to create stronger and better families.
