The Life of Dad After Show - Episode 56 - Brian Cain - Officer Dad

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton talk about the situation in Ryan’s hometown of Ferguson, Missouri. They also bring on dad blogger Brian Cain (aka Officer Dad).

Brian Cain is a police officer with a passion for entrepreneurism, social media, family, and coffee.

Since becoming a police officer in 2000, much of Brian’s work has revolved around law enforcement officers. He is proud to work with other officers to help them launch side businesses with only small amounts of initial capital (less than $100). Inspired by his love of work and his love of studying how people interact online, he looks to help teach law enforcement officers and their agencies about social media trends and how to best utilize social media platforms.

Though much of his work involves law enforcement, it’s not what’s most important to him. As a happily married husband and dad, he aims to keep his family first. He founded – an online resource that aims to show fatherhood through the eyes of “Police Dads” – to help law enforcement officers strike the right balance between family and work.
