Don Hickman - Episode 128

“If I wanted to give my kids every possible opportunity and good piece of advice, and be a role model, I had to change me”

Don, is what you can call an Internet Friend. Something which has become quite common for me over the last few years.

Hosting a Podcast is such a blessing because you can always ask people you’re interested in, or inspired by, to come on your show to have a chat.

Don is an inspiring father, encouraging other father’s to step into their roles and be as present and playful with their children as much as possible.

He also believes that the world needs a wake up call. Standards are falling and acceptance of mediocrity is seeping into more facets of our lives everyday. Truth is being intentionally hidden and complacency is running rampant. Human beings are not living up to their full potential and leading purpose-filled lives, full of happiness, success, and positivity.

Don Hickman, is on a mission to confront these unpleasant truths and empower individuals to live their best lives possible and build a better future for those after us.
