Work, Life, Self Balance
On July 6, 2006 I founded Power Shot Training while sitting in a hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. I was on the phone with my attorney and asked him to draft the articles of incorporation for a new home care training and consulting company. As I approach 14 years in business I've learned many lessons about balancing being a business owner with my personal life, and taking care of myself. This weekend I sat down to reflect on those years and here is a partial list of the things I've been fortunate enough to accomplish.
Since 2006 I have been able to:
1. Write and have published 7 books.
2. Compete in 6 Ironman Triathlon races around the country
3. Compete in approximately 100 other triathlons, marathons, and bike races
4. Write and direct a TV pilot and a feature film
5. Establish a successful part time music career
6. Run an athlete coaching business
7. Form and run an endurance sports racing team with amateur to pro level members
Happily I've also been able to spend more time with my family of my wife Michi, son Samuel, daughter Mia, and our 3 dogs.
Now....you might think "Who does this guy think he is with this list?". I don't blame you. My reason for writing it out is to emphasize that is has NOT been all wine and roses.
I've struggled mightily at times. I've been on planes and in strange cities while missing important events with my wife and kids. I've been so out of balance at times that I felt like I was drowning in all of the things I had committed to. I felt lonely, scared, and like a failure more times than I can count. I worried about paying the bills, and how to make sure my employees had a secure job and financial future. I've been broken and defeated so many times that it felt like a life sentence.
Over the past few years I've been able to step back and figure out the things that are really important to me, and to my family. I've been able to decide which things to pursue, and how much time to spend on them. I've no longer run from task to task trying to keep a bunch of balls in the air, instead deciding deliberately the things I want to pursue and the things I want to let go. And finally I found that happiness and fulfillment I had been chasing for years.
And now I want to help you achieve the same clarity.
If you are a business person or business owner and struggle with some of the same challenges I had, let me show you the techniques that worked for me. Achieve the work, life, self balance that you want to live a more productive business and personal life. Get back to who you really want to be for yourself, your team, and your family. These aren't hard things to understand, but without guidance and accountability, they can be very difficult to put into place.
I'm your accountability.
There are no long term coaching contracts. You can book a single one hour session, or work with me for weeks, months, or until I retire...the choice is yours!
