“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to be present with an open heart.” Chris Jones on

Chris has been married to Yolanda for 22 years and they have two boys (16 & 13).

Chris shares about his son’s Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and how his condition has impacted him and the family. Chris’s insights on managing life energy (whilst being relentless) well are powerful. We talk about role clarity, family communication, being vulnerable with kids and life transitions.

Chris is a high-energy serial-entrepreneur. He led his last company into building 4 brands to #1 market share in Canada while scaling the business 7 times in revenue and transitioning to working 3 hours per month.

The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:

  1. My wife needs to be my number one relationship – this in turn will make me a better dad
  2. If I do my best and come from a place of love it’s ok not to be perfect.
  3. I need to take care of myself to truly show up for my family

“Success is defined differently for me. One thing I have always held very close to my heart is the importance of family and I have always placed family at a higher value than money,”Chris Jones on
