Happy Father’s Day To All Dads

I like the wish all the fellow fathers out there a big Happy Father’s Day! Normally, I don’t keep track of holidays but then a reporter from Postmedia (Canada’s largest newspaper operator) contacted me about a story on dads spending less time with their kids because of professional pressures from the work life. She wanted to find out how I traded 14-hour workdays as a bricks-and mortar business-owner for two-hour workdays as an Internet entrepreneur.

The story was published in Friday’s Vancouver Sun and is now being syndicated across the Postmedia network of newspapers and websites. I have a noticed a spike in traffic since the story went live.

The interview and resulting article reminds me what is truly important in my life. The money the Internet makes me is great, but it’s the time freedom that I really cherish. Thanks to the power of the Dot Com Lifestyle, I’m able to spend my time on the things that truly matters.

It seemed like only yesterday when I made this video of Sally and I at the park.

This morning, I woke up to this custom card from Sally. I know that any other Father’s Day gifts I get is going to pale in comparison.

    Can’t imagine there’s anything like a hand made or hand-customized gift from your own child. I am looking forward to joining the ranks of all the great dads out there… in a couple years. 😉

    Happy Father’s Day John!

    Also, very interesting that you’re getting traffic even though the story does not link to your site. People really must want to find your site after reading those few lines about what you’re doing. 🙂

      I agree. No matter the occasion, even at a funeral, people will find time to look for a chance to make it big. “People are greedy. They’ll do anything for money.”

    Each and every dad and mom would like to see his/ her kids as a parents in the future.
    What about you, John?

  9. Abhik says:

    Hey Sally,
    It looks you gave your father the most precious gift he ever had.

    Happy father’s day to all the fathers and would be fathers.

    John,
    Both Sally and you are extremely lucky people. Any guy that wants to leave all the fun and excitement of great parties to spend time on the phone with his daughter for the rest of the evening is more of a winnner than anyone can imagine.

    That’s what imspresses me most about you.

    Over the last two years, I’ve come to know that experience with a couple of children I’ve brought into my home. I know that the most important thing you can do for these kids and for yourself is to do what you do, focus on the children.

    This post is a day later, but I hope all you dads had a great day!

      There’s no luck about it, though I understand what you mean. It’s all choices, hard work, and blessings.
