Dr Kelly Flanagan and I have been friends for a while thanks to the Front Row Dad Foundation, and I’m excited to have him on the podcast today primarily to talk about his work as an author. Dr Flanagan also does some life coaching and as a coach myself, I’m always interested in hearing more from other coaches. Join us today to talk about kids, narcissism, masculinity, and being grateful!

In his own words: Dr. Kelly Flanagan is an author, speaker, personal growth and relationship consultant, and licensed clinical psychologist. He blogs regularly at drkellyflanagan.com, his writing has been featured in Reader’s Digest, Huffington Post, and The 5 Love Languages, and he has appeared on the TODAY Show with his daughter. Kelly is the author of two non-fiction books, LOVEABLE: EMBRACING WHAT IS TRUEST ABOUT YOU SO YOU CAN TRULY EMBRACE YOUR LIFE and TRUE COMPANIONS: A BOOK FOR EVERYONE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT SEE US THROUGH. Both books debuted as the #1 New Release in Interpersonal Relations on Amazon. His first novel, THE UNHIDING OF ELIJAH CAMPBELL, will be released on October 18, 2022. Kelly is married to another clinical psychologist named Kelly, and they have three children who are eighteen, fourteen, and twelve years old. They live in a small town outside of Chicago.

This podcast is paid for and brought to you by…. by me, Scott Groves 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected]

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!
