In this week’s show, Nick tackles the important topic of work/life balance, with special guest, Jeff Lopes.
Jeff is a life coach and entrepreneur, who has helped countless clients to achieve the perfect balance between a successful business and a happy home life. In this insightful conversation, Jeff shares some of his greatest guidance on how you can achieve just the right equilibrium, and get the best out of both.
- Many build their home schedule around their work life, but by reversing this, and planning business around family, we get the most from both worlds.
- By setting realistic goals and working hard to achieve them, we can inspire and motivate our children to instil that same work ethic in themselves as they grow and develop.
- Being a present parent is the most important role that we can fulfil in life. If we get the chance to take that role, then we must give our everything to make it a success. The time is limited.
- We have to break the fears our children have, and give them the will and courage to seize every opportunity. Lives are a series of lessons. First we learn, and then we teach.
‘I build my schedule around my children’s schedule’
‘I want them to understand that if they work their rear off, they’re going to achieve those goals’
‘I said you’re not going to diagnose the future of my son. And that’s where the journey started…’
‘It’s just about breaking that fear’

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.
My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
