Episode 38 – Tactical dad with Matthew Cochran

be-a-tactical-dad-2Please welcome Matthew Cochran to the We RAD DADS podcast. Matt is a Divorced dad, a former marine, a podcaster and soon-to-be-remarried blended dad. Currently, Matt has his hands full with 4 kids, a full-time job, and 3 media outlets – one of which being the MJC podcast.

Matt has some amazing takeaways and tactics that he was able to implement in order to recover from the devastation that unwanted divorce brings. Listen as we discuss how he was able to process his situation and put his family first. I am very happy that Matt has found his path in such a relatively short period of time and earnestly hope you can implement some of these strategies to get out of your own crater and move on. Please understand, however, being in a bomb crater has a purpose and we discover what happens when you try to circumvent a natural healing process like the 5 stages of grief.
