As most of you have already figured out by reading my blog, I am a work-at-home, self-employed dad. People always ask me “what does that mean?” Well, through the day I help around the house, take care of kids, and earn money trading options and writing and photographing great blogs for my readers. It’s funny, I earned a masters degree and how do I use it? Mainly making food and telling people about it! Life can be kind of funny that way. I guess you could say I am a Stay-at-Home Super Dad.
Life might not always make sense, but it sure can be purposeful. Watch this video on top of this post. I resonated with John. Like him, I am a pilot. I also love the outdoors. But, we both put our family first. I had an interesting discussion the other day when somebody asked me, “If you never got married, what would you be doing now?” Well, that sure was an icebreaker! But, I explained how I would probably be flying bush planes around in Alaska in the summer and flying sight seeing air tours and fishing trips in Hawaii or Florida during the winter. So why did I settle into suburbia in the Midwest and write blog after blog after blog? To support my family. I save, invest, and work not to satisfy myself, but to perpetuate the personal good that positively affects my family. I have four beautiful children and they mean the world to me. Even more than a dream of flying bush planes and professional sport fishing.
Like every other parent, I want the best for my kids. My job allows both my wife and I to be involved in their lives every day. Because of these decisions, I can provide a stable and safe home for my kids. New York Life enables families to flourish through their life insurance, and other financial products.

I made a decision to put my family first, to raise them and to bring them up with morals and ethics and to teach them the value of people and family. That is what makes me a Stay-at-Home-Super-Dad.
