Focusing on work, kids, and occasionally golf

As a co-owner and executive at DanMatt Media, I wear a lot of hats in our company.

There are a lot of projects and clients that require my attention, and there are only so many hours in a day.  That’s part of small business, and it’s something I very much embrace.  But I’m also a father to a beautiful two year old boy, and we have a baby girl on the way.  To say that I’m pulled in many directions would be a serious understatement.

One of the most important life lessons that I’ve learned from my dad, who also happens to be the president of DanMatt Media, is the ability to prioritize and focus on the task at hand.  He’s the best I’ve ever seen at doing it.  For me that means that when I’m at work, I’m focusing on work.  When I’m at home, I’m focusing on my family.  And when I’m on the golf course, I’m focusing on my golf game (sadly there isn’t a lot of time for golf these days).

It’s not always easy to do, but I’ve found that prioritizing my time and focusing my energy on what is in front of me really helps me to keep a clear head.  These days everyone is busy, and we all seem to be burning the candle at both ends.  The demands of work and family aren’t going away, but we’re all doing our best to provide the finest experience possible for our clients.

Of course it helps that we have such a great staff here at DanMatt Media.  Without them we simply could not provide the outstanding commitment to service and results that we’re known for.  Our staff really makes DanMatt Media what it is.

Now if I could just get out to the golf course a little more often…
