How it works

1 Send my dad your problems.

Send my dad the challenges you currently face. What’s causing you anxiety? Are you restless? My dad is here to listen and share his advice.

2 Wait for him to respond.

He’s not always right, but he sure does put his best foot forward. Give my dad a bit of time to think about your challenges and then he’ll respond.

3 He’ll send you his advice.

In 60+ years of life you see a lot of stuff. Think about what my dad is telling you and contemplate what comes next.

4 Send my dad an update.

It could be minutes, hours, or weeks later, but whenever it is, let my dad know how you’re doing. If you don’t he’ll keep bugging you until you do. #dadscare

FAQs

Is Advice From My Dad right for you?

If you’ve read this far the answer might be yes.

Advice From My Dad certainly isn’t for everybody, but if you’ve had some lingering issues, recent anxiety, or just general questions you couldn’t get answered, talking to my dad might help.

If you need help with:

  • work;
  • relationships;
  • recipes;
  • where to go out to eat;
  • what you should do tonight;
  • and more.

Then you should probably talk to my dad.

What makes your dad qualified to do this?

You’re reading too much into this. It’s just a dad looking to do something rewarding in retirement.

Aside from his 67 years of existence, not much. My dad was a sales manager for decades, and has no professional experience in advice-giving.

However, he did raise two kids (me and my sister), and I think he did a kick-ass job. He also somehow married my mom, who was way out of his league . So, like, there is that.

Can he really help?

He’s helped me a bunch, so I think so.

Absolutely! My dad is a great sounding board. He’ll hear you out and provide meaningful, thoughtful, and insightful commentary. I definitely don’t always take his advice, but every time I still appreciate his advice.

I wouldn’t have made this website if I didn’t think my dad could genuinely help.

Why is your dad willing to do this?

Retirement is a scary place man.

In retirement my dad only works 3 days a week. After spending 40+ years putting in 60 hour work weeks he is pleased to not be so busy, however, he sees an opportunity to help others.

The salespeople at the car dealership where he works part-time don’t listen to his advice, and that makes my dad sad. When they do take his advice and have success it brings great joy to my dad.

So, why is my dad willing to do this? Because he wants to get more emails like this:

good advice from my dad

Is there anything off limits?

He’s 67, so he’s seen it all.

I’m an authority on nothing, so no, I don’t think there is anything off limits.” That’s a direct quote from my dad, so I think the answer is no, nothing is off limits.

Why your dad and not my dad?

If you’re asking this question, you already know the answer.

Sometimes you don’t feel comfortable talking to your parents about things. We’ve all been there (myself, my dad’s son, included). So, talk to my dad instead.

How do I get started?

Good question. It’s super simple.

My dad will connect with you on WhatsApp. That’s all there is to this.

  1. Submit your email address;
  2. Either me or my dad will reach out to you;
  3. My dad will connect with you on WhatsApp;
  4. Done.
