Imagine tapping into the collective wisdom of an executive and a dedicated father rolled into one - wouldn't that be something? Join us as we sit down with Mark Agostinelli, the EVP of The Davis Companies, who gives us a candid glimpse into his life, parenting journey, and the influential figures that shaped him. We will hear about his childhood, his parents' impact, his experiences living abroad, and how these elements immensely influenced his fatherhood approach. You also will hear about the impact #RBR (Raised by Ralph) had on him, which he now shares with his boys!
Mark shares his eye-opening experiences in Australia and how witnessing a more relaxed style of parenting drastically changed his perspective on raising kids. He further delves into his involvement in youth sports and the indelible lessons he learned from the legendary lacrosse coach, Paul Schimoler, which now plays a significant role in his approach to coaching and teaching his children about core values. His beloved coach would end up passing away from Cancer, and we will honor his legacy in today's episode. Mark was a very talented lacrosse player at Saint Michael's College, before turning professional to play in Australia.
As we wind down, Mark illuminates us on his parenting style, the critical balance between work and family life, and his unique approach to preparing his kids for the world. He believes in being present, in having the right energy, and in the powerful lesson of recognizing that we're not as important as we think - a reflection on how ego can sometimes cloud judgment. So, are you ready to learn from Mark's rich experiences and insights on parenting, coaching, and navigating life? You won't want to miss this episode!
