Matt Forte sits down with me on The Art of Fatherhood podcast to talk about fatherhood and the legacy he looks to leave for his kids. Matt wants to be known for more than just a football player. He and his wife, Danielle started up the What’s your Forte Foundation to help those in need. Not only does the foundation assist those in search of help, but Matt and Danielle are setting a great example for their kids by their actions.
Matt talks about The True vs Truth podcast he started with his wife to find what motivates people when it comes to what is true and what is the truth. Matt also shares with me some stories from his time playing football in college and the NFL.
