How To Be A Successful Stay At Home Dad? [True Story]
Being a father of two is by far the best blessing I had got from God (aside from having a loving wife). I work online and my livelihood counts on the Internet. Ouch.
With that being said, I always consider myself as a stay at home dad. Recently, my boy came up and say that he wants to be like me!
Now, that may sound normal for many, it is not for me. I wanted him to know that I'm an awesome dad and more importantly, a successful stay at home dad. I had been doing this for the past 4 years now and I cannot be more thankful.
In this post, I'm going to layout some of the craziest, zero BS and zero fluff tips to become a successful stay at home dad.
You with me? Good!

And the list goes on and on.

It's not fair for them.
It is your responsibility to put food on the table—and that's what you need to do.
So, don't give excuses that you are too tired or you thought you could do more.
“I make over 6-figures in 2019 with my online marketing (while staying at home). It is tiring, but I know that I am doing it for my family.”
Now, let me ask you a question.
