DAD 2.0 SUMMIT is an annual conference where marketers, social media leaders, and blogging parents connect to discuss the changing voice and perception of modern fatherhood. More men are defying stereotypes by taking active roles in their children’s lives, making day-to-day household purchasing decisions regarding products and services, and chronicling these experiences online.
Dad 2.0 Summit is an open conversation about the commercial power of dads online, as well as an opportunity to learn the tools and tactics used by influential bloggers to create high-quality content, build personal brands, and develop viable business models.

For Jeff, his three kids keep him going every day and he learns as much from them as he feels they learn from him. Parenting has been the best thing to happen to Jeff in his 38 years of life. There have been ups and downs, good times and bad but he and his family are all better for the things that happen in life.
In his house, he is the parent who works and my wife is the parent who stays home. It works for them for many reasons. The only thing that is hard being the one who works for him is missing out on lots of play time.
