[EP5] – The Impact Of Vulnerability In Fatherhood, Leadership & Content Marketing | Ron Tite
In this episode I was joined by Ron Tite. Ron is a speaker, author and founder of Church+State (an agency that helps brands navigate the unified worlds of advertising and content by creating stuff that people want to see, not stuff they have to see.)
We discussed a recent LinkedIn post that he shared talking about why you don’t need to be a “father” to play a “fatherly” role in someone’s life.
Ron is an incredible storyteller that is able to weave humor into his content in a way that really lands and resonates. And, this interview was no exception as Ron shared numerous stories about his own experiences with his Dad (and step-dad) and how they shaped him as a leader and how he chooses to show up as a Dad to his 2 young kids.
