Why Working from Home May be the BEST Parent Choice You Can Make — at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

Cartoon about working at home

The world is a different place than when I grew up. I actually grew up with Leave It to Beaver (look it up, you millennials!). I wrote a recent column declaring that When I Was Your Age – It Was Much Easier. It was! And, being a parent was easier. Today it may be the BEST choice you can make to work out of the house. THAT is our topic this Thursday July 10 at #DadChat from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET.


We have a special guest, Kavalon Gilliam, who DOES work out of her home while raising her two kids (alone). Her story is inspirational as SHE MADE IT WORK for her, pardon my pun!

Her (auto) bio: Grew up in North Carolina – 2 energetic kids: Jason 2 years old and Mia 15 and a violin player. Background is human resources, business administration, and criminal justice. Worked as a human resources manager for 7+ years. Had a routine surgery to have thyroid removed, it was everything but routine. It resulted in multiple complications, causing me to become a work at home parent, utilizing what I had learned from college and my professional experience to become self sufficient once again and to take care of my kids.
