Mark Graham on Asking for Advice Before Your First Baby is Born

In Chapter 1 of 15 in his 2013 Capture Your Flag interview, media executive Mark Graham answers "How Did You Go About Seeking Advice as You Prepared for Parenthood?" Graham shares how he found a friend, Conrad Doucette, who had become a father only months before Graham and his wife were to have their baby. This gives Graham a chance to ask a lot of questions to a friend going through a similar experience at the same time. He gets advice to enjoy time alone with his newborn baby in the recovery room and build a bond with his child.
