About the Author:bradaronson
I’m a husband and a dad, and when I’m holding the parenting reins, I like to go all out. For me that means leading an egg drop competition from the third-floor window of our family’s home or heading up indoor games of baseball and hockey, and then having to explain why something else is now in pieces. Luckily, my wife, Mia, is understanding.
During COVID quarantine, our son, Jack, and I invented Dudley Ball. Although Jack would disagree, I’m definitely the world champion. The rules are simple:
1) You start on Jack’s bed and have to get the football into a basketball hoop on his door.
2) There must be a tackle every play.
3) If you kick a field goal, you have to wear these giant orange sunglasses that are wider than my head.
4) If something breaks, it’s the dog’s fault (sorry Perry).
And, why is it called Dudley Ball? Well, Dudley the Destroyer is my professional wrestling name. Everyone has a pro wrestling name, right?
Outside of family, I love teaching entrepreneurship to youth in Camden, N.J. I believe in hands-on learning, so everyone in class starts their own business, which has led to many adventures in entrepreneurship. I also love volunteering on the nonprofit boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters and Hopeworks.
One day, I hope to become a professional softball or disc golf player. And, I hope the holiday I co-founded that features a seven-foot-tall orange tree and more than fifty stuffed monkeys goes mainstream (see chapter nine in HumanKind). In the meantime, I work with tech startups and write books
My book, HumanKind: Changing the World One Small Act At a Time, is filled with true stories about how one small deed can make a world of difference. Forbes called it, “The most uplifting and life-affirming book in years.” (Thanks!)
If you’ve read my book and enjoyed it, I’d love it if you’d consider writing an online review. It takes 5 minutes and makes a huge difference in getting the word out. You can click here to leave a review. Thanks!
