Beard Care 101: A Family Affair

As a dad, Beard Care 101 is more than just something for me, it’s teaching my sons through example how to care about themselves.

I’m working with Dollar Shave Club to shed light – and hair – on how my personal grooming is a teachable part of life.

The Best Die Cut Machine For a Farmhouse

I do crafts with the kids, but I’ve never considered myself to be an intricately “crafty” person. We have a fixer-upper farmhouse that I tinker on a bunch. I customize costumes for the boys to wear. And I spruce up the occasional gift wrapping or fix up a sign to mark areas on our property. Functionality is key for me.

Today we’re sharing what we’ve learned, and how we manage our family business while keeping an eye on finances and retirement.
