Welcome to the Helpful Dad Community

If you are new to the Helpful Dad site, this page will help you get started so you can make the most of the wisdom tips on this site and improve your life faster.

Hi, I’m Mike, That Helpful Dad

One of my Legacy Life goals is to help people live a better life — I do this by sharing practical tips, life lessons, honest product reviews, and action-oriented wisdom that you can use today to live your best life NOW. No BS, just real-world solutions that I can personally verify work.
This website and The Helpful Dad YouTube Channel, TheHelpful Dad Pinterest Boards, and the Legacy Life Facebook Group are all devoted to accomplishing this mission.

WHO is this Site Intended for?

I strive to provide value to two main groups:

  1. People of my generation (30’s to 50’s) looking for real-world tips that actually work.
  2. Young adults and those just starting their careers who open to life lesson and wisdom tips that can make their lives easier.

Additionally, I would point out that this is a FAMILY-FRIENDLY site so you’ll never find any profanity, politics, or R-rated content. What you will find is lots of good advice and practical solutions to real life problems. 

What Topics Do I Write About?

I write about a wide variety of topics, these include:

1. Health and Fitness Tips – with a focus on 40+ Fitness, the Intermittent Fasting Lifestyle, and I also have a library of over 50 Tough Mudder Training Vids.

2. Cooking and Recipes – with a focus on Kamado Joe and Outdoor Grilling Tips and Must-Have Products.

3. HONEST Product Reviews – I only recommend products I actually pay for and use myself as noted in my Trust Guarantee.

4. Life Lessons and Practical Solutions to real life problems.

5. Wisdom from King Solomon, The Tao Te Ching, and other classical sources.

6. Money, Career, and Finance Advice – including basic financial wisdom, sales best practices, and gold/silver investing.

7. How To and What Is style tutorials – with a focus on easy to understand tech tips for our generation.

8. Healthy Living for Pets – including how to make home-made dog food, as well as numerous resources for pet owners with diabetic dogs. 

And more…
