We believe that’s true of work and life. That’s why we’re sharing ways to optimize both in D. Bello’s Lifestyle Outsourcing series. 

In this episode, CEO Jeff Bates and COO Andrew Acker tackle a subject very close to their hearts: ‘Dad Hacks.’

Now, you might ask, “What makes you guys the experts in this area?” Well, we don’t claim to be experts, but between the two of us, we’ve got eight kids. So, over the years, we’ve discovered a few shortcuts to thrive.
