Stay At Home Dads, Have Fun With Your Career


Work At Home Dad, Because You Can!

Hey dads, ever have that yearning in your primal loins to provide for the family in a different way? Did you ever pound the steering wheel on the way home at night and scream expletives at the rear bumper of a cheesy Volvo and swear to yourself that "a year from now I won't be making this commute"? Sounds like you might wanna' look into being a work at home dad.

Well, you can definitely do it. Don't let anyone say you can't! Most people don't even know what that means so for them to tell you that it can't be done is like Marlon Brando giving diet advice.

Here are three great tips for you future work at home fathers:

1, 2, 3...Work At Home Dads Are Where it Be!

1. You can't ignore the kids anymore. You're going to have to spend time with them now. No more acting like you can't tie shoes on other people feet or that you don’t know exactly how they like their pasta cooked. It's your job now. Embrace it. And if you really don't know then learn.

2 Definitely make a schedule. When are you going to get your work in? What are you going to do for work? There's a lot of ways to make money online. Can you do any of them? Blog? Write articles? Product reviews? Do you have any website experience? Transcription? If worse comes to worse you can start a phone answering or help line service. Bottom line: If you don't have a plan to find work that consistently has work you're going to drown in the sea of failure. Make a schedule and do the work when it says work time. Stay off of the Xbox or out from under the hood of the car. No staring at the back of your eyelids either…this "work at home" not "stay at home"!

3. When you have it all work out though you're gonna' rock and roll! Spend more time with the kids and wife (or husband, whatever…we're an equal opportunity guild!). You'll have the freedom of working at a computer without the smelly fat lady across from you talking about her grandkids all day. The boss with the stanky-ass breath won't be leaning over your shoulder and breathing in your ear as he looks at what you're doing.

In Case You Want "Expert Advice" Instead Of My Ramblings

You'll have your own career. You'll be your own boss. You'll double the amount of sweat pants you own in a year… There's no need for dressy stuff like torn jeans when you're working from the house!
