Not Ready For The Investment in Coaching, But Still Need To Do Something To Save Your Family?

(Watch the video to learn how to get the same training at a fraction of the price)

Look, I’m not going to try to sell you on this. I’m just going to present a couple of facts and you can make your own decision.

You need to make a change and become an elite man, husband, and father.

You filled out the application to join the Dad.Work Brotherhood, our elite group coaching program for dads, but based on your answers, it’s not the right fit for now.

This could be because our program is exclusively for dads who currently live with their wife and kids, or it could be because you are not in a position to invest $4000+ financially in your growth as a dad and husband.

We have a ton of free content (podcast, Instagram, email newsletters, etc.), and we’ve got an intense Brotherhood program that’s saving marriages and changing lives, but we haven’t really had anything in-between.

The Brotherhood group coaching program includes:

  1. Accountability
  2. Elite Dad Habit Stack
  3. Leadership Framework Development
  4. Expert Relational Skills
  5. Group Coaching Calls
  6. Brotherhood in Community

It’s basically half teaching/training and half coaching/accountability.

This is THE path to success, not only because it’s what worked for me to turn my life around, but because I am literally seeing it work for the men in the program in real time.


There is another option that will get you access to the information and training you need to do this work in a self-directed way, at a significantly lower cost.

We’re going to separate the training and the coaching.

And we’re going to offer the training videos and resources as a stand-alone offer at a significantly lower price.

75% off the regular price of joining the Brotherhood.

For only $1000, you get the exact same training we deliver inside the Brotherhood, just without the coaching, community, and accountability.

Look, it’s better to just join us and make sure you crush it in way less time than it took me.

But I also did a LOT of this work alone before joining men’s groups and coaching programs, and this is one way you can DRASTICALLY speed up the time it takes you to become an elite man, husband, and father.

It took me YEARS to learn this and apply it.

We will literally give you the exact tools, resources, processes that worked, with NONE of the time-wasting junk I had to wade through.

If you stick to the Elite Dad Habit Stack, build your Leadership & Legacy Framework long-term vision plan, and learn the essential relational skills required to connect with and lead your family to success, you will see results.

What Other Dads Are Saying:


There are three main parts of the Elite Dad Course. They all work together to turn you into a father and husband who is hard to kill, easy to love, and equipped to lead your family to greatness.

When you add them all to your life, you will be transformed into an intentional, confident leader who can weather all the storms family life has to offer.

  1. HABIT STACK: Build the trust you’ve lost (with your wife and with yourself) with daily non-negotiable habits
  2. LEADERSHIP & LEGACY FRAMEWORK: Build more trust, build your confidence, and finally know where you’re going and how to get there by creating and following your own Leadership & Legacy Framework as a family leadership map.
  3. EXPERT RELATIONAL SKILLS: Learn the Relational Survival Skills that make you an expert communicator, a master of your emotions, and dialed into deeply intimate and rewarding relationships with your family.

Let’s dive into each of these three pieces below…


Trust can be broken all at once, like in the case of infidelity, but more often than not, trust is lost in marriage one small decision at a time.

It’s like death by a thousand paper cuts.

You say you’re going to pick up milk on the way home and you forget.

You say you’re going to fix that thing in the garage, but it never happens. 

You say you’re going to take everyone on vacation year after year, but you never actually book the flights.

Your wife opens up to you and you shut her down.

You become defensive when your wife or kids come to talk to you about something important.

Each day is an opportunity to either build or destroy trust in our relationships, and guys…

Trust is the currency of intimacy.

If your wife and kids can’t TRUST you, they will not feel safe enough to build an intimate relationship with you. 

For your kids, this means you’ll lose authority and influence in their lives, and they’ll eventually start looking to their friends for counsel, rather than from you.

For your wife, it means she will not open herself up for the deep physical and emotional intimacy that you both crave, because she’s (rightly) scared of being hurt.

The first thing we start with is a commitment to the Elite Dad Habit Stack inside this program.

The habit stack helps you build trust in your relationships because you show up and do the non-negotiable habits each and every day, even when you don’t “feel” like doing them.

They help you build trust with yourself because you start to earn your own trust and respect by being the kind of man who shows up daily and does the things required to show up and build himself.

The habit stack builds you up as a man, husband, and father. We are what we consistently do. If you do the habit stack, you necessarily will become harder to kill, easier to love, and more equipped to lead.

Getting the basics right, building yourself into a good man, and becoming BORINGLY RELIABLE for your family is the absolute KEY to rebuilding trust and getting the deep intimacy you crave and the MORAL AUTHORITY to lead.

Smashing the daily non-negotiables is part ONE of leading, but it MUST be paired with part 2, which I’m about to touch on, if you truly want to lead well.

Too many guys stop with the daily habit stack and wonder why they aren’t leading successful families, even though they’re “doing everything right”.


On one side of the pendulum is small, in-the-moment leadership decisions. 

But here’s the thing.

Those decisions must inform your future.

The habits you do daily will lead to a specific outcome if you do them for long enough.

Do you know what that outcome is?

Equally as important as the present moment is where you are leading your family and how you’re going to get there.

I’m talking about a long-term vision. A map. A playbook. What I like to think of as a family “business plan”.

Imagine for a second that you’re rowing your family’s boat. You work hard, you have good habits, you are disciplined. But if you set out to sea, and you don’t know where you’re trying to go, you may end up pointing your boat right out to the middle of the ocean, never to reach land again. 

That’s what happens when you try leading your family without first figuring out what your vision is. 

Where will you go as a family? What do you want your life to look like when you look back on it? What does an ideal marriage look like to you? What about your parenting goals? How will you even get there if you do figure out what you want? 

Almost none of the dads I talk to have built anything like this, and yet it is absolutely essential if you want to lead your family to success.

This is another trust-building exercise, and gives you huge inroads when rebuilding influence and intimacy.

Your wife will finally see you taking ACTION to lead. Knowing where you’re trying to lead her. She’ll be able to start to feel safe enough to soften a little bit, knowing that she can trust your plan and ability to take action.

We will be building your life-long gameplan with your Ultimate Legacy Vision, Mid-Term Legacy Building Visualization, Bridging-The-Gap Self-Audit, Goals, Values, and more.

But guys, you can row as hard as you want and you can follow the perfect map, but if you don’t have this LAST piece of the puzzle, you’ll still capsize your family boat with everyone still inside…


Alright so you set out to sea in your boat. Your family is with you.

Your habit stack is DIALED IN. You are disciplined, fit, loving, and you could row for DAYS, no matter how hard it is. Savage.

You created a map. You know exactly where you’re going to go, how you’re going to get there, what stops you’ll make along the way, and both you and your family are confident that if you just follow the plan, you will reach the destination together.

You’re rowing hard, you’re following the map, everyone’s having a good time, until…

Storm clouds start brewing overhead. The wind picks up. The water gets choppy.

Suddenly you hear the crack of thunder and lightning above, and the waves start to roll in.

“Oh no!” you think to yourself. “I have no idea what to do now that there’s waves!!!”

You can be the best rower, the hardest worker in the entire world…

You can have the best, most clear and perfectly defined map in the entire world…

But if you lack the SKILLS required to navigate stormy waters, you’ll never make it, and your family will go down with you.

That’s why the final piece of the puzzle is Expert Relational Skills. 

You can try as hard as you want, but if you never learned how to communicate without starting fights, master your emotions, be a great husband, parent successfully, set boundaries, etc., you will continually fall short of your potential.

All three pieces of the puzzle need to be in place for you to successfully lead your family.

Plug in extra bonus content like…

A ton of journal prompts to go deeper and unlock the WHY behind your actions in order to finally clear the roadblocks that you continually seem to stumble over…

Family meeting and spousal check-in agenda templates to foster insane levels of connection as a family…

Our Family Leadership Masterclass where you can get a 30,000 foot overview of how the system works together (plus Q&A answers at the end)…

And you’ve got all you need to start turning around your family ship today.

Real-World Results From Other Dads Just Like You…

Before taking this course I was working from old paradigms. Reacting from triggers and yelling instead of regulating my nervous system and responding from a place of compassion understanding and care. I now have tools that support me and allow space for a new way of showing up for myself and my kids.
Wes B.
Before I started this course, I think I was a child in a man’s body. Chasing childish dreams of my youth like freedom, sports and drinking. Selfish with my spare time, angry with my kids for taking it away. I was a child raising children. This course has set me on a path that I am unfathomably grateful for. A path towards being the man that my family needs and my wife deserves. I’m proud of the person I’m becoming!
This course provided tools that resulted in an immediate change in my management of anger, as well as materials and exercises I will continue to utilize beyond the course conclusion.
I am making a conscious effort to use the tools I’m learning, and both my wife and our eldest son (8) have commented on how I’m not yelling or swearing and am more fun.
Ben P.
It has been a big help for getting my triggers under control. Both me and my 1 1/2 y/o sends a big warm thank you hug from Sweden. You work is awesome!

Let’s go over your options…

Now that you’re here, you have 2 options.

1. Join me inside The Elite Dad Course, and transform your fatherhood journey.

2. Leave this page, keep trying to figure it out by yourself, and hope that you succeed before it’s too late.

Just to drive the point home here, if you weigh your options and decide to do nothing today, here’s some of the likely outcomes (I work with plenty of dads who only start doing this work after it’s too late…these are real-world examples, not scare tactics):

  • Your wife leaves you (or is unfaithful first, then leaves you)
  • Your kids act out and make your life way harder
  • Your kids eventually become teenagers, leave home, and never want to talk to you again
  • You get a divorce and have to pay child support and/or 50% of your assets
  • Your kids are super messed up and you have to pay for therapy for them (or worse, they take matters into their own hands and OD…seen it happen too many times)

And even if NONE of the above happen…

You still have to live in your own head every single day, hating how guilty and shameful you feel about the way you act, and wondering why you can’t get your life under control.

Wife and kids distant, major guilt, just feeling like garbage allll the time. Tell me you don’t already know how bad that feels.

Anyway, here’s what’s real…

I’m blessed to work with a lot of entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders who invest thousands of dollars into their growth as a man, husband, and father, through my more intensive, hands-on, coaching programs.

I love working directly with dads more than anything, and the results are insane.

BUT, it hurts me every single time I hear from a dad who’s struggling with his family but feels like he can’t easily make the few thousand dollar commitment (still a steal, considering the consequences of inaction I laid out above) to work together.

That’s why I broke out the training portion of our elite Brotherhood coaching program and am offering it to you here for 75% less than the cost of joining us for coaching.

I’ve taken my 9+ year struggle of figuring this all out and condensed it down into aN action-packed course with ONLY the things that worked, that’ll have you leading your family in less than 3 months (with only an hour or two of study and coursework each week), for less than the price of a single month of marriage counseling.

You can learn the exact tools and process I used (and hundreds of other dads have used) to:

  • Lead your family,
  • Save your marriage, and
  • Raise great kids.

This is stuff dads are spending multiple thousands of dollars to have me teach them directly, but you can get it all here for only $1,000 by choosing to go through the self-paced video course.

I’ve spent more on “intro” coaching sessions where the only point is to get the other person up-to-speed on my problems.

Save your marriage, lead your family, and raise great kids today, at a fraction of the price of our full coaching program

Just email me and let me know. There is literally zero risk in making this decision today, and infinite upside.

Let’s Compare The Alternatives…

Look, $1000 for a course that’ll change your life is peanuts compared to the alternative of doing nothing. But, that’s not to say money just grows on trees, so here are some of the alternatives…


Forbes reports that the average therapy session is $100-200 PER SESSION.

I don’t know anyone who goes to therapy for one or two sessions and sees results, and the numbers I found on a quick Google search (plus knowing many guys who have gone through therapy) show that it can take between 6 and 40+ sessions to see results.

On the low side, that’s $600. On the high side, it’s literally $8000+.

Obviously, this course is not therapy, but if your goal is to have a better family life…the course will work.

And hey, maybe it’s not just you who might eventually need therapy, but your kids…or your wife…because of your poor leadership.


I coach men individually for a minimum of $1,500/month.

The men in our group coaching program the Dad.Work Brotherhood pay $4000+ to join us.

I’m personally part of coaching programs that cost $10,000+.

They work, and they’re more of an investment.

Figuring It Out On Your Own

Now, on the off chance you find all the information you need for free (highly unlikely), it’ll probably take you years to figure this out. Ask me how I know. I went down this path myself because I didn’t know there were courses, coaches, etc. for a long time.

More likely, you’ll spend hundreds of dollars on books, workshops, experiences, journals, etc. None of which are guaranteed to work.

All of which run the risk of taking too long for you to figure out, and having it be “too late”. Your wife gets fed up and leaves. You lose all influence with your kids.

I don’t want to see you go down this path, because I know how scary it can get, having nearly been there myself, and having worked with a lot of men for whom this was a reality.

I’m confident that this is THE best value decision you can make, and with the 100% guarantee, I’ve tried to make it a no-brainer.

More Real-World Results

I jumped on this class because my wife and kids were seeing the scary side of my anger when I’d yell increasingly more often. Curt breaks it all down in ways that make so much sense – by describing what’s happening in an empathetic way and offering specific tools on how exactly to change. The work is hard, and the content is just the stepping stone into it — be prepared to commit to become a better version of yourself. It’s worth it.
This has resulted in better communication with my wife and kids. I have been able to show up better for my kids and even help them process their own emotions based on what I have learned. With the help of Curt, Dad.Work, and the other men, I have been provided new tips, tricks, ideas to help me carry and manage this weight, so I can show up better in relationships.
Tim S.
This course was full of easy to remember and actionable content I could learn and implement on a busy schedule. It allowed me to understand what I was doing ok, and what is a definite no-no. I feel I am now more aware of where I need to point towards in marriage and parenting instead of feeling dragged into the situations.
Hey Curt, I wanted to message you and let you know that I had a big breakthrough today. My three-year-old had made a massive mess in our house while I was working at home in my office. He threw dirt from our house plants everywhere, he spilled and threw a big box of crayons everywhere, he threw some barbecue sauce because he was mad. This is one of my biggest triggers with my kids. It’s something that I would have totally freaked out about by yelling and screaming and running around trying to clean everything up as fast as possible. My central nervous system would be totally shot. But today I remained totally calm and cool. I had no negative reaction at all to this. I was able to recognize that he didn’t do this to be malicious and he wasn’t doing this to me but that he was perhaps bored or wasn’t getting attention and also I’m sure just exploring his environment because he is three. Today I set intention and gratitude, I also did your Daily 2 Visualization. I feel like this was a huge part in my success today. I’ve just gone through module two and that is my focus for this week. I wanted to let you know how much of an impact this has made in my life so far it’s really incredible and has exceeded all expectations that I had going in. I am so grateful for this course you’ve put together, I will be sharing it with as many dads as I can.

Now, most guys will hesitate here…

“Will this work for me?”

“Easy for Curt to say, he doesn’t know MY situation.”

“I don’t have time for this…”

I get it. It’s hard to even imagine that there is a tried, tested, and true path to successful family leadership.

I felt that way for years before things finally started to click.

But here’s the deal…

I have seen this work time and time and time again.

First with myself. Remember, the reason I know all of this stuff is because it literally saved my life. I learned it the hard way, and I’ve taken the BEST of what I’ve learned, left out the rest, and have presented it in this course so that you can join me as a success story.

I’ve also seen this work with countless other men. Scroll back up to read the testimonials. This stuff works.

Growth mindset is absolutely vital for success in life, and it’s something I’m teaching my kids, and I hope you are, too. But that growth mindset applies to us, too.

You CAN change the way you think, live, and react. It’s simply a fact of life. Go look up research on growth mindset if you haven’t heard of it before.

It will work for you (and if it doesn’t, at least you’ll learn some new tools, and I’ll give you a refund. No harm no foul. Highly doubtful, but hey, here’s your safety net).

I don’t know your exact situation, but I’ve worked with hundreds of men over the past few years and have come to realize that most men THINK they are unique…that their struggles are theirs alone…that no one understands. Turns out that’s a lie. MOST men can relate to each other…even in the most unlikely of ways.

And hey, if you think you don’t have time, try doing nothing, and see how much time you waste sucking at being a husband and father, causing fights, and ruining your relationships. That’s WAY more time-consuming than a few hours over the course of the next 12 weeks.

About Dad.Work

I started Dad.Work to help dads who struggle with a mediocre marriage, kids who don’t listen, and no real idea how to lead a family successfully. Dads like me before I learned this stuff.

My goal is to create a world full of dads who are easier to love, harder to kill, and fully capable and prepared to lead their families. In turn, we’ll raise kids who are calm, confident, compassionate, kind, and who will make the world a better place.

This is born out of my own struggles…scaring my kids, being threatened with divorce, wanting to kill myself at multiple points along the way.

I don’t want that for any dad.

66,000+ men follow our work on Instagram. Thousands more listen to the podcast every month. Hundreds of men work with us to become better men, husbands, and fathers through our programs, courses, and coaching methods.

I went from among the worst dads in the world, hating my life more often than not, to being a calm, confident leader who wakes up every day excited and grateful for the opportunity love and lead my family.
