My Dad's Dating Advice

Read below to find out how you can win this.I was 15 years old when my dad gave me the first dose of dating advice.

“Make sure you wear a helmet.”

At that age, my mind was in the gutter -- and I adhered. Nearly 12 years later, after the journey I've gone improving my confidence around women, I’m fairly certain he meant for me to literally wear one around women.

Giving advice and answers on the more sensitive topics were among the many responsibilities of my dad.

Other responsibilities included, teaching me to tie a tie, educating me on alcohol, teaching me to drive, making me watch sports and pushing me in academics, just to name a few.

For my dad, all he wanted me to do is be as knowledgable as possible, know how to take care of myself and live a better life than he did. He thought that was the perfect foundation to build for the next generation.

I'd like think he did a good job as I am not a total delinquent.

But what being a dad means has evolved over the years.

Having worked with hundreds to clients over the years, one thing that sticks in my mind is there’s a chance the skills and strategies I teach can be passed on to their children -- both present and future.

And in this Digital Age, children will need all the help they can get when it comes to developing their interpersonal skills. I take the implications of that responsibility very seriously and am grateful to potentially have such an impact.

Philips Norelco put together a video talking with 5 dads and getting them to share what it means to be a dad. Take a few minutes to check it out.

You can follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #NewFaceofDad.

You know how I love Philips Norelco products. In full disclosure, over a year ago, they gave me their SensoTouch 3D Electric Shaver to try out and it was -- and still is -- the best shaver I’ve ever used. I’ve been using it since.

I'll be choosing a winner at the end of this week.

I've had the honor to work with many dads as clients and have so much respect for what they do. I personally cannot wait to be a dad -- primariliy so I can groom his "wings" from birth.
