Now I don’t intend to put on tights (sorry ladies or I should say you’re welcome ladies), throw a cape around my neck, and save parents from the zombie apocalypse. Although that would be really cool, I plan on doing it in a more practical manner.
Being a parent is challenging. In addition to your career, money, marriage, relationship, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians; you are responsible for another human life or lives.
Many times we become complacent and just “go with the flow”. We decide to play it safe because, as Jim Carrey said, “We make decisions based on fear disguised as practicality”.
I totally understand making the safe decisions because that is where I have been for most of my life. Now I want to accomplish a little more and contribute as much as I can.
So What It is My Plan to Save the World?
It is simple! I created Stuff Parents Like as a resource to help parents in a few key areas. These include:
I am not going to tell you how to parent – I am not here to give advice on parenting. When I discuss parenting it will mostly focus around humor. However, I am opinionated so be ready for a philosophical parenting show down every once in a while.
The number one reason for divorce is money. I used to be a financial advisor for about a decade and managed millions of dollars. I learned a ton about personal finance and I hope to pass on some of things I learned.
Additionally, I will discuss how I earn $1,500+ per month working six hours a week on Amazon.
A recent study cited 70% of people do not like their careers. I believe if you are not happy at work then you will bring that negativity home and that is not good for the family.
Personally, I changed careers entirely during the great recession and I believe anyone can change careers. I will share with you how it is possible along with some other career advice.
Life & Dreams
I have had the fortunate opportunity to meet a number of parents who in addition to raising children, being married, and having a career; find a way to accomplish their dreams too.
Over time, I will talk to these parents and see how in the world it is possible.
Additionally, you can expect some video courses, ebooks, and even a podcast in the future.
As with anything in life, there are no guarantees. I don’t know how many people my site will impact, but I hope to at least help a few parents along the way and in turn save the world!
