It has been a while since I last posted, but I have great reasons. I have been trying to narrow down topics to discuss that will really help “Save the World One Parent at a Time” and determine a focus for this site.
After talking and interviewing a number of parents and going over things with my much smarter (and hotter) wife; I have come to a conclusion on the “Stuff Parents Like”. I believe there are three things all parents want out of life. The three things are (in no particular order):
Financial Freedom (MONEY)
If you don’t believe money is important then you are fooling yourself. Money is the number one reason for divorce in this country. And let’s face it…having money makes everything in life a little bit easier. Having money reduces stress, allows you to make decisions you may not have made otherwise, and gives you control of almost everything else in your life.
We will spend a lot of time on this subject because I used to be a financial advisor in my prior career. I had my Series 7, Series 63, Life/Health License, and managed over $20 million in assets. I really enjoyed what I did, but not in environment I was working.
Additionally, I have made pretty much every financial mistake possible. I will be able to provide a ton of information and exactly what you should be doing with your money.
A Meaningful Career/Life
It is estimated 70% of people in the US don’t like their jobs. This is sad because if you don’t enjoy what you do then it makes everything in life much harder. It can be difficult to be a good parent and spouse, stay healthy, go after your dreams, or anything else if your job takes everything out of you mentally.
We will discuss how you can find a career/job you enjoy & find meaning in your life. This is a subject I don’t have all of the answers, but I will tackle this head on through reading, interviews with experts, and my own life experiences.
Being an Epic Parent
Yes…Parents do LIKE being parents and we want to be EPIC PARENTS. We love our children and want the best for them! Afterall, raising our children is the most important thing will do in our lives.
I may not be the most equipped person to answer parenting questions. So, I will turn over all serious parenting questions to my wife! I will also share some of my parenting adventures along the way.
What to Expect Going Forward
Going forward you can expect a ton of things from me and Stuff Parents Like. Here are few things to look forward to in the coming weeks and months:
- A ton of information about money. I will discuss debt reduction, earning more $$$, investing the right way, and everything in between
- Expect a podcast at the beginning of year about the “Stuff Parents Like”
- Interviews from parents who have children and are living amazing lives
- Resources, Resources, and more Resources to help “Save the World One Parent at a Time”
- Answers to some of the most difficult parenting questions ever
- Much More
Lastly…I don’t have all of the answers, but I will provide a ton of information to make your life as a parent much easier!
