It’s Father’s Day this weekend and we remember those special moments that we shared with our fathers, grandfathers and those special influencers in our lives. Let’s not forget to make new memories and preserve them for years to come, so when their future team members ask them to share fatherly advice from their dads and include photos, they can!
We know that being a father is one of the toughest but most rewarding jobs you can have, so whether our dads are one of our closest friends or left us too soon, we celebrate them for loving us and for who they are!
Growing up, my dad always told me to either “Suck it up, sweet pea” or “Clean your room.” And I’m just there, not listening. It’s our thing.
My dad always used to tell me “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” This continuously reminds me to always be myself, do what I love, and to never judge others for showing who they are, because we are all a little weird.
“Everything’s better at the lake.”
I spend a lot of time fishing with my father. Every time I leave the lake he tells me to “Watch out for low flying aircraft.” This is his way of saying drive safe, especially when I’m on my motorcycle.
The best advice my dad has given me is to not worry about what other people think of you and just have fun being yourself!
My dad has given me a handful of good advice, but the best advice he’s shown me over the last 13 years, is to appreciate the little things in life, and to live every day like it’s your last. He’s had four types of cancer (three were very serious and life threatening), but he stayed extremely strong and positive, even on the worst days. He doesn’t mess around! He has been in remission the past seven years, and still lives each day to its fullest!
My dad taught me to be independent and to work hard. He pushed me to tackle projects and to be confident that I was capable, even if I’d never tried a skill before. He’s always been a proponent of trying things first without his help but makes it clear that I can count on him when I need to.
My dad has taught me to always be humble. He is the most hard-working person I know and I rarely hear him complain. We are pretty much the same person – it’s so much fun that he is my dad!
When you are out on the town with a friend, have your friend say in a really loud voice, “Happy Birthday!” You increase the chances of someone buying you a drink. My dad is full of very interesting advice. He is so much fun to be around.
Happy Father’s Day from Prime Advertising! We hope you spend a little extra time with the amazing men in your life this Father’s Day!
