Behind the scenes

Hi! My name is Vic, and I run this site where I share real lessons I teach my kids on the following:

  • How to Make and Grow money
  • How to Be financially smart
  • Work smarter, and harder
  • Be curious
  • Be educated
  • Why relationships matter


Where did it all start?


I take notes. I mean, I take lots of notes…  I have notebooks upon notebooks full of random thoughts and ideas on my shelf.  I figured a website would be a solid place to write some of these stories so someday my kids can read what went on in their old man’s mind.

It somehow blossomed into a full on parenting and lifestyle blog.

Trust me, I initially didn’t even know what a blog was, I just wanted to write some life lessons and stories.

Parenting can be tough, there’s a lot of trial and error and “learning on the go”.  At the end of the day, it’s all about lessons, experiences, creating lasting memories.

If you’re a new parent, Congratulations, and sorry to bust your bubble, but it doesn’t get any easier once the kids come along.  If you find it does, I’ve got a few Benjamins with your name on it, in exchange for the secrets to life.

But, it can be done!

My family and I like to get out of the house as much as possible and make each weekend our “weekend adventure time”, it’s how we stay sane.  Trust me, it works!

A little about Me:

My Hobbies: Family, traveling, good food, experiences, amateur photographer/videographer, read, draw, write, soccer, and dadding (is that a word?)

Favorite Places: My current home in Hawaii, but you can find Bali and Japan at the top.

On a weekend you can find me:  At the beach, flying my drone, snapping photos/videos, at the park with the kids, writing, reading, watching youtube tutorials (and fails).

Why a parent blog?: Having 3 kids, a passion for writing, helping others, and experimenting with new ideas…it just made too much sense.

What I’d most like to teach my kids: How to be financially smart, DIY projects, how to be respectful, hard work, and being genuinely good at heart.
