The Professional Step-Dad is a place where we share stories, strategies, routines and ideas for men just like you. Our mission is to help you answer one question and one question only; how can I be a better Step-Dad?


Children are not born with manuals and the journey of fatherhood doesn’t come  with a map. We learn from experiences whether they are good or bad. As a step-father of five, Franco Zavala, founder of The Professional Step-Dad, knows firsthand the difficult obstacles one must overcome in order to earn the respect and trust of a new family.


Follow along as Franco breaks down his own personal journey as well as interviews fellow Step-Dads who are in the trenches, just like you. Franco's mission and overall purpose is to positively influence Step-Dad's on a global scale while cultivating powerful family dynamics centered around trust, patience and purpose.
