Episode 033: Dr. Scott Vatcher – How To Be An Awesome Dad

Meet Dr Scott Vatcher

Entrepreneur, business owner, health coach, chiropractor, international guest speaker, author for Mens Fitness magazine, podcaster…. and Dad.

Dr. Scott Vatcher in his own words:

“I am originally from Canada and grew up in a small town called Mt. Pearl in a place called Newfoundland. I had a good up-bringing and lots of great friends growing up. I went to University in my home town and completed an honours degree in Biochemistry.drscottvatcher_thewakeupdadshow-about

From there I moved to Toronto to complete my Doctor of Chiropractic and literally the same week I graduated I moved to Australia. I have been here ever since, living on the Gold Coast.

I own a thriving Wellness Based practice and help 100’s of people to better health every week. In my 13 years as a chiropractor I have continued my education about health, wellness, nutrition, exercise, finances, entrepreneurship and many other interesting topics.

I am also the father of my beautiful daughter Aurora who is 6 at the time of writing this. She is a handful and a force to be reckoned with to say the least!

I have seen so many Dads, either friends, co-workers, or clients, loose themselves when becoming a Dad (including myself) that I felt the NEED to start a movement life Wake Up Dad. Please don’t get me wrong, I don’t have it all figured out, not even close. I feel like I have enough knowledge to get this ball rolling and see where it takes all of us as Dads.”
