239: How to Steward An Intentional Marriage, Family, and Business, with Chris & Michael from The Forge



If you want to thrive in life, family, and work, where is the best place to start? Today I’m joined by Chris Niemeyer and Michael McGreevy, and they’re sharing about their new organization, The Forge– a community of men who are intentional and engaged with their wives and children, while doing their work with excellence.


We talk about:

  • What happened in each of their lives that led to considering how to do life differently
  • The four pillars of self-leadership, marriage, family, and business that drives the mission of The Forge
  • Why success starts with leading yourself, and how this impacts the rest of your life and business
  • How growth happens in all of life when men are authentically doing life together


Plus, they’ll share how you can get involved with what’s happening at The Forge, whether it’s a community for you, your spouse, or someone you love. I was inspired to hear how Chris and Michael made the pivot to do what matters through this new venture, and I know you will too!
