A journey that started with divorce led home designer Michael Daniels to a career change, a long escalator, and a drive to reduce conflict for everyone facing the challenge of co-parenting. Today he joins us in the Toaster to tell us all about the fruits of his work: Fayr.
“Family Advocacy is Your Responsibility” — or Fayr — is an app dedicated to making the experience of co-parenting better through communication, argument diffusion, and emotional support. With features like co-parenting calendars, expense tracking, geo-check-ins, and encrypted files, it’s the perfect tool for managing complex post-divorce families. Even better for your legal team: just using it to document your activities as a co-parent creates a log of admissible material documenting your relationships with your former spouse and your kids.
Beyond the app itself, Michael tells the story of his experience pitching Jessica Alba, Wil.i.am, Gary Vaynerchuck, and Gwyneth Paltrow on the Apple show, “Planet of the Apps.” His pitch earned funding and an advisor from one in the group and we’ll hear about their relationship on the show this week.
