With Father’s Day upon us, I’ve recently taken a look

remember later on. I could never forgive myself if I let those slip away. It’s much easier when you love what you do for a living. I have poured myself into Landmark Tax Group, and it gives me life to watch it grow. That’s why my work life and my home life are inextricably tied together sometimes, and it’s why I have to make quality time every chance I get. With that in mind, my son has become pretty fond of playing in the office. When my two worlds collide, my son will spend the day running around our desks or doing his best business impression on an unplugged phone. My wife and I have even taken this time to show him the principles we live by here at Landmark Tax Group. We talk to him the best we can about the values of hard work and what it means to earn a dollar. And while he’s about a decade away from having to worry about any of that, it’s never too early to start passing on valuable lessons to your little ones — in moderation, of course. I try to balance out the play time by being a role model for my son, just like my father and my uncle did for me. Then, after the day is done and we get him ready for bed, we make sure to let him know how loved he is before he wakes up to start all over again. Here at Landmark Tax Group, we understand what it means to have priorities in your life. That’s why we do everything we can to get you back on track with your tax- related issues. With one less thing to worry about, you’ll be able to throw yourself into the things that give you purpose in life. Debt isn’t the end of the world, but when it’s gone, you open up a whole new life to live. That’s what we aim to do for our clients every day.

back at the delicate balance I keep in my life. Like most parents, it’s not always easy to find the time for my family while trying to move forward in my profession. But at the end of the day, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I consider myself lucky to have so many moving factors in my life; that means I’m doing something right. That give-and-take means you have to set aside time every day to make things work. I suppose we never appreciated that enough when we were growing up with our own parents. It’s only after we have our own little ones that we truly start to understand just what it means to share your life with people you love. No matter how many late-night diaper runs I’ve had to make with my wife or early morning bottles of formula I’ve had to cook up for my crying son, I know that this is the parent’s gift — and I know I’ll miss it when they get older. While there’s no perfect way to raise a kid, I welcome the challenge with open arms. The major issue for me is trying to be present as much as possible. Not just physically present, because anybody can phone it in, but it’s hard to be mentally involved. The true challenge starts when you have to pick yourself up after the workday ends and throw yourself into your family’s life. After all, they need me just as much as I need them. A son needs his father, and I put everything I can into making sure my little boy has the best life he can. The same goes for our next child, who’s set to be born this August. That’s why I make sure to leave work at the door as much as I can. Your life at home is a life worth living, and that means throwing yourself into it 100 percent. Family life takes many forms. Whether it’s a trip to the park or just throwing the ball around, it’s these memories that they’ll
