In this episode of the DadPOD, Michael Stelzner is my guest. Michael Stelzner is the founder of the worlds most read business magazine, Social Media Examiner, author of the books Launch and Writing White Papers and the man behind large events, such as Social Media Marketing World and Social Media Success Summit. He is also host of the Social Media Marketing podcast show.
But, it’s his latest project that got me interested in having him on the DadPOD. In a well orchestrated build up to a national launch, he recently revealed a new online magazine called, My Kids Adventures.
The magazine is a collaboration of volunteer writers who submit practical, easy to implement activities that get parents and kids off the couch and involved in fun, creative family time.
Michael reveals what prompted him to come up with the idea and desire to implement something that’s so seemingly different than what he has been involved with to date (but you’ll hear his very strategic thinking behind how My Kids Adventures fits very nicely into his plans).
During this DadPOD program we discuss:
- The backstory on what prompted Michael to pursue this new venture, My Kids Adventures
- Michael shares how Social Media Examiner got its start and grew to be one of the most successful online magazines in the world.
- The impact that our busyness and digital media have on our kids and lethargy when it comes to guiding our families toward healthy activity as dads.
- The living tribute he gives to his father.

During the program I mentioned that I’d be giving a tool that will help parents have a great time while discussing some hard but necessary issues like peer pressure, dating parameters, virginity vs. purity, the value of good friends and the corruption by bad, and other similar discussions. The tool is called Passport 2 Purity, a weekend in a kit produced by FamilyLife. IF YOU WANT TO WIN THIS GREAT TOOL JUST CLICK THE PASSPORT 2 PURITY IMAGE BELOW AND ENTER YOUR NAME AND EMAIL. THAT’S IT. Winner will be drawn and announced on August 26, 2013. Good luck.
