Work From ANYWHERE Should Be The Standard! [Wise and Shine 18 with Zat]

In light of recent events and the growing trend towards remote work, the question of whether work from home should be mandatory is a topic of much debate. While there are certainly benefits to remote work, such as increased flexibility and reduced commuting time, there are also potential downsides, such as decreased social interaction and difficulty separating work and home life.During the pandemic when most of us were required to work remotely, we’ve come to realize that we dont really need to be in the office 9 hours a day just to get work done. So why isnt work from home a mandatory thing?

From Breadwinner to Caregiver: Life as a Stay-at-Home Dad [TFC Wise and Shine 17 with Cliff]

Stay-at-home fathers are becoming more common in modern society. Being a stay-at-home father can be a rewarding but challenging experience. Many stay-at-home fathers report feeling fulfilled in their caregiving role and value the opportunity to spend more time with their children. However, some also report feeling isolated or stigmatized by societal expectations of traditional gender roles. Following the recent discussion of gender roles and caregiving during Singapore’s budget 2023 to support families and encourage more births, stay-at-home & working moms were the main characters during this discussion. But what about stay-at-home fathers? What drove them to becoming a stay home dad and the struggles and sacrifices that come with it. With us today is Cliff, a stay-at-home father of 2! He’s been a stay-at-home dad for 4 YEARS and he’s here today to discuss all there is to it about being a stay-at-home father.For all other links mentioned, or to discover more from the team at The Financial Coconut (including all our other shows), go to https://linktr.ee/thefinancialcoconutDisclaimer: The content in The Financial Coconut is solely for educational and entertainment purposes.
