Being a single parent is hard, but it can be joyful too. Legendary single Dad, champion father we discuss both with single dad Michael Ray.
For the last 6 years, Michael has been bringing up his daughter on his own. Oh, and did I mention that Michael was 51 when this happened and is an ex- bouncer, bodybuilder and Personal Trainer? Michael delves into what it was like raising his daughter, fighting stereotypes and also turning into a campaigner and reformer after being banned from his daughters ballet school.
Michael Ray became a dad for the first time at forty-nine. At fifty-one, the bloke who had worked most of his adult life as a Stripper, Bouncer and Trainer became a full-time single parent, raising his two-year-old daughter Charlie on his own. To say he was under-prepared, ill-equipped and overwhelmed, would be something of an understatement
Michael Ray speaks about his insight from his personal journey raising his daughter and the profound impact being a solo dad has had on his outlook. Michael addresses the gender and societal roles that are no longer applicable and the negative impacts on organisations, business, and personal outcomes
