Evolution of Dad- Men's Work Life Balance

I'll be giving you my review of the new film "The Evolution of Dad" in the next day or so.  In the meantime, I have a clip from the movie about something that is near and dear to my heart: men's work life balance.

I don't know how many of you know, but my burgeoning business, Bettermen Solutions, is dedicated to help businesses thrive by helping their male employees with better work life balance skills.  I am also the Work Life Balance editor over at The Father Life. You can google "work life balance" and you'll find a billion posts on "moms and work life balance"--these are important and it's essential that they be written.  However, statistically speaking, it is men who represent the fastest growing group of people complaining about a lack of work life balance.  You just never hear us complain about it--men aren't allowed to whine, remember? (unless we have a tiny cold, then we have free licence!)

At any rate, I hope you'll watch the short three minute video below. You have to enter the password, "workingdad."

Dads & Work/Life Balance from Evolution of Dad on Vimeo.


  1. Great video. It's good to see Dads that care about spending time with their kids and recognizing that it is a challenge for Dads these days--having to be superman at work and part-time housekeeper and groundskeeper and home manager and loving Dad and husband. It doesn't lend itself to 80-hour weeks.

  2. Great blog Cameron, and it's fabulous to see what you're doing with Better Men Solutions. People really should take a look at it and spread the word around to their colleagues, employers and friends.
