About the Book

“Raising a Father is a celebration. This affectionate and appealing story gives smiles, tears and renewed faith in the human spirit.”
Brent Green, Author, Marketing to Leading-edge Baby Boomers: Perceptions, Principles, Practices, Prediction

“... should be required reading for the planet. Uplifting, instructive, and describes so much of what fathers should aspire to in their relationship with their children.”
Herb Rubenstein, Sustainable Business Group

“Raising a Father provides a very candid and honest assessment of the everyday obstacles we all face in trying to attain the proper work-life balance.”
Peter J. Pittman, President, Denver West Rotary Club

During Arjun Sen’s tenure in the corporate world, a wise, corporate stair-climbing friend told him, “Arjun, in order to achieve bigger glories, one must make smaller sacrifices in life.” It was clear he referred to spending less time with family, not being there for children’s special moments, and similar “small” sacrifices in personal life. Sen learns the hard way that these sacrifices come with large costs, and in Raising a Father he recounts his journey to this realization.

Foreseeing his father-daughter future reduced to obligatory phone calls on birthdays and Father’s Day, Sen leaves corporate America. He founds a home-based marketing consulting company in Denver, his ten-year-old daughter’s favorite city; names his daughter as manager; and begins the real journey of becoming a true father.

In this memoir, Sen discusses how he now measures success differently. Raising a Father tells the story of how a young girl uses her charm, her love, and her caring nature to train her dad to become a better father and a better person.
