What’s a typical day like for you?
Generally up early, which comes naturally with having 3 children under 6. My typical workday includes networking and meeting new connections, speaking to prospects and existing clients to learn about their challenges and pain points, discussing solutions to improve their situations, and planning implementations of preferred strategies to improve business processes and employees’ work lives. Other role requirements see me reviewing internal business plans, delivery, and future growth. Assessing sales and business tools to help improve processes. My evenings are mainly spent catching up with my wife and spending time with our children over dinner and bedtimes.
