I have played around with this blog for long enough. It's about time this blog began to reach it's full potential.
As I typed that last statement, I wonder how many people asked themselves a set of similar questions...
When was the last time you felt like you achieved your full potential?
When was the last time you feel like you gave your best to something?
Those are serious questions. I challenge you to take some time and answer them.
If becoming a Work At Home Dad (or Mom) is part of reaching your full potential, we need to talk.
My partner and I are willing to teach, coach and mentor a small group of Dad's towards home business success. If you would like to be part of this group, send me an email at: ty (at) tribble.org and we can schedule an interview. By the way, your coaches are both 6 figure Work At Home Dad's who have been featured in numerous magazines and books, including Entrepreneur Magazine.
I just found Penelope Trunk, who describes herself as, author, columnist, former executive and serial entrepreneur. She has a great blog and I plan on reading her book in the near future. Penelope linked to the Work at Home Dad blog a while back, but I just noticed the link.
Sorry lads, I think Penelope is married, but if she is not married, send flowers now. Heck, send her flowers even if she is married, just sign them, "Your Loving Hubby". That's gotta be good karma.
The post I found at Penelope's blog was outstanding. Here is a snip:
I hate to dis Catalyst because they have provided great research to support women in the work place. But here’s a bit from their most recent study:
“Most large U.S. companies have made scant progress in advancing
women…to leadership and top-paying positions over the past decade.”
But really, why fight to get more women up a ladder that is
basically dysfunctional? We should, instead, focus on helping men to get off the ladder. And then helping both men and women to get meaningful and rewarding work both outside and inside the home.
The bold part of the snip is where I come in. My job is to help men (and women) kill their jobs so that they can work from home and live a happier life. I subscribed to Penelope's blog and I suggest you hurry on over and do the same.
It is about time that I stop ignoring this blog project. Being a Work at Home Dad might be the biggest and most fullfiling accomplishment in my life. Neither of my kids, ages 6 and 9 can really remember their Dad having to leave home to go to a job.
Last month I began doing some consulting work with a home business coach and trainer and I spent several days a week driving to his home office which is about 30 miles from my home. I leave after commute time so I miss most of the traffic but the drive is taking some getting used to. Beginning in June, I expect to spend most of my time back in my home office so I look forward to that.
While I am working on projects for the work at home trainer and coach, I am also very much in a learning mode, seeing what it takes to build a large training and coaching business. (More on that in the future, I'm sure.)
So, a couple of weeks ago, I got up and did some work at home and then got ready to leave for the day. I pushed the button on the garage door and I was getting in my car when I heard my son, (obviously upset), run out of the door leading from our house to the garage to give me a hug.I asked him why he was upset and He said, "Dad, I thought I missed you." That special moment made me realize that being a Work at Home Dad is my greatest accomplishment.
