    The Impact of Experiences

    The Impact of Experiences

    “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    We just wrapped up our family summer vacation, and while it was still fresh, I wanted to do a quick episode talking about the power of gifting experiences for our children, and the impact it not only has on them but us.

    If listening on Spotify I would invite you to take part in the Q&A and Poll, but if listening on another platform, I would love to hear what has been your favorite experience that you still remember to this day. Was it a favorite family vacation? A Broadway show? A game? A camping trip? Let me know at my website or visit my Linktree for additional ways to reach out! I would love some engagement on this!

    With that, summer is wrapping up, and if you're still in need of school supplies, make sure to check out our partners at Amazon for some great deals!

    Thank you as always for your support, and be sure to subscribe so you don't miss out on future episodes and share the podcast as well, as it really helps with our reach!

    Dads Can Organize The Family Calendar Too!

    Dads Can Organize The Family Calendar Too!

    Over on the Mitten Dad website, I recently posted about a series of tweets that had gone viral, where the original poster had mentioned how every time she would ask dads for their email addresses for party invitations for her three-year-old, they would always provide the email addresses of their partner instead. Why was that? Tune in for more, and be sure to send a voice memo in with how your family organization planning gets handled, and any tips you may have if this topic struck a chord for you! It might get featured on a future episode! Or if you'd prefer to share a non-audio story, reach out over at Twitter! 

    As always, thank you for listening and be sure to check out the latest posts at Mitten Dad!

    Starting Over and Life's Moments

    Starting Over and Life's Moments

    Welcome to The Mitten Dad Show! Formerly known as The Script-Notes Show, since I last published an episode, a few things have gone on, such as a new addition to our family, and the pandemic has put many things in perspective.
    I switched it to Mitten Dad as an homage to my home state of Michigan, giving the content a Midwest flair. But also because, as many out there know, your perspective on life changes as a parent when you become. While I still expect much to revolve around some of my favorite personal finance, business, technology, and sports topics, I wanted to add another layer to parenting. As dads (and dad figures), I believe we all have something to contribute, even if we don't always realize it. My goal is to build a community that allows others to join in and share life's stories, life moments, tips, skills, and more. I would love for this to be a place for listeners to tune into as a hub for that. So much great content and material get lost, and I want to highlight some of that here. 
    So with that, if you would like to share, contribute a story, or a life's moment of your own, definitely reach out to me over at MittenDad.com or through Anchor, be sure to leave a voice memo! Thank you for listening, and be sure to like, follow and subscribe, and leave a five-star review if able, as it's a huge help to expand the reach!
