Well, here I sit at my computer at 6:00 am. Tired. Kind of in a weird fog that only new parents can understand. It’s a combination of sleep deprivation and general exhaustion from just being busy all day with the kid and my regular workday. My day job has been busier...
It’s a tale as old as time. A couple is together for many years. They grow comfortable with each other. They feel safe. Secure. Kids are probably in the picture. Probably two jobs. Probably a stack of bills to worry about. The marriage becomes a machine that requires...
At the beginning of my journey on September 15, 2020, I had an epiphany that changed my life forever. I looked at the guy in the mirror and was disgusted. I vowed to stop everythingnegative holding me back from feeling happy again. That same day, I came across...

Hi there, I’m the DSO (Dad Starting Over). My story is not an unusual one. For those who just stumbled upon this site by chance and have no connection to the subject matter… it may seem a bit “out there”. Trust me… it’s common. For the rest of us, you came here for a reason: You need to hit the restart button on life and redefine what it means to be a MAN in today’s world. You need a boost up over the wall and you’re scrambling for any little nugget of wisdom that will help you climb that extra inch.
Why a restart? Well, maybe life just kicked you in the teeth. If you’re like me and millions of other grown men all over the world… you were told “I want a divorce”, or worse… you discovered infidelity. Your entire worldview has changed. Your head is spinning. What you thought was innocent and comfortable is now twisted and scary. Welcome to the real world, my friend. I’ve been there and done that.
My philosophies and advice are not cookie-cutter. They’re not politically correct. They’re not always nice. But.. they work. They make sense. They get results.
