Dadages came from this simple question – Where do we go for advice? It’s really hard to find worthy mentors in our society who have wisdom and knowledge to offer and who are willing to take the time to share it with those around them. Dadages brings you fatherly wisdom that can be applied to your career, your family, your entire life in bite-sized pieces presented in a practical and fun way that is easy to understand, apply and share - and impossible to forget.
