073 Interview with Charlie The Spaniard Brenneman

May 27, 2016

Charlie is a dad to a 2½ year old little girl and they’re expecting another special delivery in the end of this summer.

Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman is a professional mixed martial arts fighter in UFC, a speaker, a mentor and an author.

In 2011, he was ranked as high as #7 in the world, and in 2015, he published his autobiography, Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage.

In today’s episode we’re talking about:

  • What it’s like to be a dad to a little girl when having this “tough guy” image.
  • Strategies he’s used to balance pro fighter career and the role of a husband and a dad.
  • Ideas to remain close with the partner in the turbulent times.
  • Accepting the reality when it gets overwhelming.
