You've been laid off. Now what? So, the economy has gone downhill, you’ve been laid off, you’ve been looking for work for months; you’ve sent out a hundred resumes and still no luck… Welcome to the club (but not for long).
A survey I noted sometime back suggested that some 49 per cent of working fathers (why don’t they just say “half”?) would like to trade their neckties for apron strings and stay home with their kids. As a father who did that very thing eight years ago now (has it only been eight years? Feels longer than that...) I feel a duty to fully inform ‘The Brotherhood’ about aspects of the decision that may otherwise be overlooked or downplayed, and that may not have been fully disclosed by those conducting the survey.
Ahhh, the joys of air travel.
I just returned from a three-leg, five-day journey with my daughter, combining family and business on a trip I will cherish for the rest of my life. For those flying for business, a flight can be a time to catch up on work or catch up on sleep. For those traveling for pleasure, it can be a time to relax, begin the party, read, or catch up on some movies. But what about a flight for those traveling with kids?
Sorry About the Noise
"Sorry about the noise, the business daycare is located right beside my office!" Have you ever used that line? Or wished you could. Why is it that every time the business line rings the kids need mommy?
