What can I do for you?
My name is Tom O’Leary and I am The Moment Maverick. I am passionate about helping busy family business owners make peace with time. I have been involved in family businesses for over 20 years so I have been there.
It isn’t simply about prioritising, setting mini goals, becoming more productive, charging more, learning to say no or indeed just slowing down to create space to STOP (Sit, Think, Observe, Plan).
We can get to all that but what is even more critical is delving into your relationship with time and setting clear aspirations for every aspect of your life. That goes hand-in-hand with balancing your needs and the needs of the business today with preparing for the future you have imagined.
Because we don’t get much time, do we?
What’s worse is that over our lives we collect activities, people and things that eat up our time.
Ever feel like a puppet being pulled here and there with little control over your time?
This builds day after day, almost without us noticing until one morning we wake up living a life we had never intended.
Well if you are a busy family business owner it probably does. The business often creeps out of the “boardroom” and into the “bedroom”. At times it can be hard to know if the family is running the business or the business is running the family.
All this time parents are ageing, kids are growing up, friends are moving on – opportunities to live life are floating away.
The business suffers too when the endless treadmill turns it into a chore. I know so many family business owners who would just love to sell up and move on. That is saddening after all the sacrifice!
Go easy on yourself – It is not your fault!
Most family business owners believe that building a successful business is the end-goal. But once you get the business to a certain point you need to get your life and family back on track, enjoy the moments life gives you along with the spoils of your hard work. Which is why my goal is to help you create more moments without having your business suffer.
