Ricky Willis – Skint Dad – Fatherhood Website Saving You Money
Ricky Willis founded the award-winning money saving website SkintDad.co.uk which helps people save money by showing that every penny counts. What started as a way to share his family’s debt issues, and as a way to be held accountable while paying off £42,000 of consumer debt, quickly became a hit money blog. Since Ricky launched the site it has attracted over 15 million page views. Ricky has a passion for finding ways to boost income and has gained experience in website development. He has appeared on BBC TV, This Morning, Good Morning Britain, as well as in newspapers discussing money issues families face today.

The Dad Website
The Dad Website started out as just three dads with six kids between them. Today The Dad Website is now a much bigger and more functional family. Together the feel that they are many dads with many kids and many, many more stories to share about the ups and downs of fatherhood. For them they feel it’s not always easy being a dad these days. The rules keep changing as does the role. The one constant seems to be that there’s always something to worry about and as a result, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. In addition, by sharing their stories, advice, dad-jokes and heart talks, they can inspire each other to become better dads and to raise great kids.
