He mentions that his favorite part of the day is coming home from a long day of work and seeing his kids run-up to the door to meet him. Safe to say, Dan spends a lot of time with his kids. 

Spending time and being there for the family means a lot to Pashman. It's also the best advice he can give.

"Do the best you can and just try to be there. Sometimes I'm with my kids, and I'm distracted because I'm still thinking about the work I just finished and the work I have to do after they go to bed, but at least I'm there," he stated.

Prioritizing kids is something that he learned from his childhood. His parents used to do the same for him and be there at special events. On that note, he remarked,

I remember when I was younger, my parents often came to my baseball games straight from work, so they were still in their work clothes. I always appreciated that they came.

A little compromise and effort go a long way! Being a parent is a taxing job, but Dan, he's found the silver lining in it. He said,

I’m much more efficient now. You just have much less time to waste once you have kids. So you find a way to get the same amount of work done in less time.

The Pashmans have their little family rituals and ways to have fun. But, thanks to his personal life being so full of joy, his work life has seen more productivity, and as a result, he has achieved major success.
