Podcast: The Truth About Being a Lead Dad with Author and Former New York Times Journalist

Before starting The Company of Dads in 2021, Paul Sullivan was a journalist for 25 years, the last 13 at The New York Times where he wrote the Wealth Matters column and oversaw several special sections. He is the author of two books Clutch: Why Some People Excel Under Pressure and Others Don’t and The Thin Green Line: The Money Secrets of The Super Wealthy.

In this episode, Paul Sullivan, journalist, and author talks about his 600 columns over 25 years writing for the New York Times, his most recent book The Thin Green Line: The Money Secrets of the Super Wealthy, and how Covid-19 has changed his career path. Through his columns, Paul was able to gain insight into the world of wealthy people which led him to write The Thin Green Line. He discusses the differences between being wealthy and being merely rich, whether or not another washout period is coming and how fathers who are the go-to parent in their families can lack a sense of community and support. This conversation also explores Paul’s experience of reconnecting with old friends due to the Covid-19 lockdown, creating an intentional community for friendship, especially in the later stages of life and his evening ritual for winding down from the day. He encourages listeners to check out The Company of Dads to learn more about fatherhood questions and connect with other fathers globally. Tune into this episode to hear from Paul Sullivan on all things money secrets of the super-wealthy!
