Richard Sams on Show #196 : Effective Entrepreneurial Work-Life Balance 

Richard Sams is the Co-Founder and CEO of MOHARA, an innovation delivery specialist company that builds tech products.

His team works with startups, SMEs, and corporate clients looking to develop non-core products, mitigate risk, and seek opportunities to innovate within their sector or branch into new sectors. MOHARA’s Head Office is in London, with offices in Brighton, Bangkok, Cape Town, and a new office in Dallas.

Richard believes that good products and business ecosystems start with good people and that great ideas conceived by talented people need to be seen. 

Today, Richard and I discuss his journey from a career in teaching to starting his business. He shares how some of his teaching skills were transferable to his startup and how it has developed over the years.

He reveals why he believes people have been an essential element to his success and how his self-development passion drove his company.

He discusses why it is  crucial to take time for yourself as an entrepreneur and what he does to maintain balance between his work life and home life.

He shares how taking time away can make the time you are at work more effective and the challenges that the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine has presented to him and his business.

He also shares how he stays organised, develops his knowledge, and how his business passion helps him to live more.

“Take whatever problem there is head-on, and just go and fix it.”
