An App for Saving Your Relationships with Fayr founder Michael Daniels
How to Split a Toaster: A divorce podcast about saving your relationships
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.

This week I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Daniels the Founder & CEO of Fayr. Fayr was born out of 2 desires.: to become a better co-parent and to make the experience of co-parenting better. Fayr is an app that encompasses the whole range of co-parenting needs - financial, documentation, geo pinpointing, scheduling communication - for the entire time you-re co-parenting. When Michael was filming "Planet of the Apps" Michae met one of the leading figures in honest, considerate and communicative separations: Gwyneth Paltrow and she immediately identified with and deeply supported Michael's mission to make co-parenting better and Gwyneth is now Fayr's head advisor. Listen in to hear the full story.
Michael Daniels, founder & CEO of the coparenting communication app Fayr (Family Advocacy is Your Responsibility), shares that the best ways to get to the other side of a life-shattering experience are to stay child-focused and to realize that whatever you are going through shall pass. He learned these lessons while enduring the stressful process of divorce and the challenges of coparenting.

Helping Co-Parents Communicate Better; One Text, Request for Money, and Calendar-Swap at a Time, with Fayr App Founder Michael Daniels
Moms Moving On: Navigating Divorce, Single Motherhood & Co-Parenting.
Co-parenting and communicating? Even oil and water could mix better than that. The truth is, it's hard to find your groove as co-parents, especially when finding your groove as married parents didn't really work out for you. After personal experience through his own divorce, Michael Daniels realized very quickly that there needed to be a way to improve communication strategies between him and his ex - and then he did the same for the rest of us! This was where the idea for the Fayr app was born, and lucky for the rest of us, it's become the talk of the co-parenting community, especially after Gwyneth Paltrow endorsed the app and became a head advisor for the company. Fayr will help you communicate constructively, eliminate burdensome legal fees and documentation, and free up your time and resources for what matters most: your children. And the best part? It's useful even if your ex doesn't agree to use it. Now a little bit about our amazing guest: As a separated father of two young children, Michael found himself overwhelmed by the legal, financial and emotional costs of divorce on his family. After 20 years in the homebuilding industry, Michael hung up his hard hat to create a tool that would not just improve his family’s life, but would also help the other 55 million divorced co-parents in the US. Despite his success on the Apple tv show "Planet of the Apps" and partnering with Gwyneth Paltrow, Michael's guiding light remains the same: working everyday to be his best self for his kids.
