While waiting for mommy…

Jed Edward Chan is trained by The World Needs A Father movement, and has been a full-time work-at-home husband and dad since 2017. He is an internet entrepreneur, a blogger, an investor, a volunteer, and a former financial consultant. He currently dedicates his time to building The Learning Dad Blog — a website dedicated to fathers who love to be involved in their children’s lives, provide for their families, and live a Christ-centered life. He lives in Cavite, Philippines with his wife, Lalaine, and two kids, Joab and Jrue.

2016 was one of the best and worst years of my life. After getting married in January, I found myself broke with a huge pile of debts by June. I lost my sportswear business, and so did my mental health. Depression, anxiety, and hopelessness crippled my life.

It was a humbling experience overall. All I could do then was to cry, pray, and start over again. If there’s one thing that saved me, it’s this: learning. I finished more books in six months that year than when I was in elementary, high school, and college combined. I also attended classes and listened to hundreds of podcast episodes about business and finance.

By God’s grace, in 2017 I was back on track. I started an online transportation service that sustained our family until it was closed down by Covid-19 in 2020. But I have already learned my lessons. In a few months, I was able to pivot to the Chromebook business.

Currently, my wife and I operate a total of five businesses at home. I can’t be thankful enough for the opportunity to work and be with my family at the same time.

I have shared more about my story in these posts:
