One of the themes of February has been the topic of dadpreneurs.  Recent studies have shown that in the past 10 years, the number of work-from-home dads has more than doubled. The number of stay/work-at-home dads has risen from 81,000 in 2001 (1.6 percent of the total) to a startling 176,000 in the past year (3.4 percent of the total), according the U.S. Census. While the reasons for this trend may vary, Erik Flores is an example of a work-from-home dad who left a career outside the home to launch businesses that would allow hmi the flexibility and independence that only a home-based franchise provides. Erik Flores owned a car detailing business for four years. He used Chem-Dry upholstery cleaning products on the interiors of vehicles and was impressed with the results. He also has the responsibilities associated with three children and a local church where he serves as the director. So, a year and a half ago, he sold the car detailing business to purchase the Plainview, TX Chem-Dry franchise. Now, the 32 year old sets his own hours, travels and has the time to devote to both his ministry and his children.
