In this post, you’re going to read about my desire to create 2 new resources for parents. The Happy Healthy Family podcast and I’m Simply a Dad Live (on Facebook) will provide health and wellness information and actionable advice to help parents and their kids achieve their best life.
We Did It!!
This project has been successfully funded, and now I am excited to start working on the development and bringing these to life! Thank you to all who backed this campaign!!!

What is I’m Simply a Dad Media?
I’ve been creating videos for Facebook for a few months now, and I would like to create a regular show to air live on Facebook in addition to publishing a bi-weekly podcast.
I’ve already completed my first episode tentatively titled “I’m Simply a Dad Live”. It was a great experience and my guest, Ken Siri told some amazing stories and brought a new perspective to always staying positive and finding happiness through the struggles of life.
My next episode is airing next week 11/21 and will feature Peter Sullivan. He’s an EMF expert and we will be discussing how things like cell phones and wifi are impacting our health and our kids.
I have another planned episode with Emily Brown from crunchymamascience.com. In this show, we will discuss having a non toxin home and simple things you can do reduce toxins at home.
These episodes are a good sampling of what you will find from me at I’m Simply a Dad. However, I want to create these shows in a higher quality with crisp sound and a clean clear picture. Funds raised in this campaign will help me provide helpful, practical content for you delivered in a professional quality show.
We all want to have a happy healthy family, right? Sadly,in today’s fast-paced and hectic world, that can be a bit of a challenge. We all have so much on our plates, and sometimes it’s hard to make good choices and even harder to understand what healthy actually means.
As we go about our day to day hustle, we’re surrounded by things that prevent us from living our best life. The many toxins in our air, water, and food and the call from unhealthy convenience foods continually throw up roadblocks to our health and happiness.
I personally struggled with health issues and fought repeated bouts of depression for years.
When my first son was born, I thought I understood what healthy meant. Sure, I had my vices and that’s what I believed caused my unhappiness and my obesity. Turns out, my vices were only part of the issue. As I continued to follow the advice of mainstream doctors and publications, I only got fatter, sadder, and more unhealthy. By the time my 2nd child was born, I was battling depression and a serious weight problem.
Thankfully, I took matters into my own hands and started researching health, nutrition, and how the environment affects us. It took a couple years, but I now have a much healthier lifestyle. By the time my 3rd child was born, not only was I 85 pounds lighter, but I was actually happy too.
I Need Your Help
My previous struggles is why I’ve become so dedicated to spreading the word. It is my mission to help other parents find the road to better health, hope, and healing. I have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help me create a new outlet for parents.
What is the Happy Healthy Family Podcast
The Happy Healthy Family (HHF) podcast will be a natural health and wellness podcast for families. It will cover a variety of topics related to natural health and all things family. As a father of a child on the autism spectrum, there will be episodes discussing topics relevant to autism as well.
Possible Podcast Episodes Will Cover
- Non-Toxic Living
- Reducing Stress
- Improving Sleep
- And all things family
There will be a special emphasis on giving parents practical advice on how they can apply the ideas and concepts discussed to their own families.
The HHF podcast will start as a bi-weekly podcast and will run an average of 20-30 minutes. I will bring on guests to discuss relevant topics in a Q & A format. Podcast guests will include experts in various fields. I will also invite real parents like you and me, so we can learn their secrets and hear how they are implementing a healthy lifestyle in their families.
Why Do I Want to Create a Podcast?
I’m personally a huge fan of podcasts. I listen to a number of health and wellness podcasts, but unfortunately, the content discussed is not easy for parents to apply with their family. My podcast will fill that gap and provide useful and affordable tips for parents, and help you continue to raise a Happy and Healthy Family.
Parents have limited time. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to learn new information & ideas without losing any time? With the happy, healthy family podcast you can complete your daily tasks while learning new ideas on natural health and wellness in a fun and relaxed way.
The podcast will be hosted in the same transparent and relatable manner you’ve come to expect from I’m Simply a Dad.
Funding Goal: $500
The target for this Kickstarter campaign is only $500, which is quite a low target for a Kickstarter. However, this is all I need to make the podcast a reality. This money will cover the cost of a basic microphone ($150) that will allow the podcast to have great audio. It will also cover the cost of a podcast hosting and distribution service for one full year ($200-250). The remaining funds will be spent on editing and recording software.
Stretch Goal #1 $1,000
If I reach my stretch goal of $1,000 it will allow me to purchase higher quality equipment and software as well as premium hosting and distribution. It will also cover the cost of hosting a Giveaway/Contest for the podcast’s launch. The goal of this contest will be to get listeners to leave a review of the show on iTunes which is critical to ranking high on that platform.
Stretch Goal #2 $1,500 (and beyond)
If we hit $1,500 or more, I will not only purchase upgraded equipment and software, but it will also allow me to hire a graphic designer to create the podcast logo. With enough funding, I could even create high quality video podcasts/shows as well.
All pledges come with my sincerest gratitude!
All pledges will help. Even a simple $1 pledge is appreciated. See my Kickstarter page for full details.
Campaign Ends Soon. Pledge Today!
The Kickstarter will only run for about 2 weeks, so do not delay. Head over to Kickstarter and help support families looking to improve the health and happiness of their families.
Please share this with family, friends, and anyone who would be interested in helping bring this show to life.
Thank You and I Appreciate You, Sincerely!
