Front Row Dads [Family Men with Businesses, Not Businessmen with Families] with Jon Vroman

Sep 6, 2023

Dave Allred talks about how he ran away from a rough childhood and homelife when he was 17, how he survived on ramen noodles and barely scraped by, and how those struggles pushed him to become a millionaire by 26 and build a real estate kingdom by 36. 

Plus, you’ll hear some gems on teaching your kids to be business-savvy from an early age - including the story of how his 16-year-old daughter bought herself a Tesla by teaming up with him in a business deal. Talk about savvy!

Not able to travel? We got you. Join our next online event, built just for kickass dads who know there’s more to learn. 

FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.  

Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.  

Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you?

In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values)

If you’re reading this, you want to grow.  Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
