BHS #019: The Good Dad Project and The Dad’s Edge with Larry Hagner

3Larry Hagner is the founder of The Good Dad Project and author of bestselling book: “The Dad’s Edge.”

His story and passion for being a father is a bit unique.


Larry grew up virtually in “fatherless environment” for most of my life.  He didn’t meet his real father until he was 30 years old.  As fate would have it, their paths crossed when he walked into a coffee shop eight years ago.  They now have a great relationship now and spend a great deal of time together.

It was really through his own childhood struggles that Larry realized true passion for being a dad.

Children are not born with manuals and the Journey of Fatherhood doesn’t necessarily come with a “map.”  There are challenges, twists, and turns along the way.


Larry says: “as much as we truly enjoy our children and being a father, we tend to internalize our struggles.  When we do that, we get distracted and stressed out.  As a result, we do not enjoy the Journey of being a Dad as much as we would really like to.”

Larry is not a psychologist or counselor in family dynamics.  He doesn’t have any accolades behind my name. He’s an everyday dad trying to do the best job he can. He strives to be the best version of himself so he can guide his kids to be the best version of themselves.
