“For me, it was all about being able to work on my own terms. Otherwise, what’s the point?”
This is the reason why Joe Perkins, founder and MD of web design agency Chaptr, started his agency in the first place. But he soon realised that the work-life balance he aimed for wasn’t going to happen if he didn’t take a step back.
“I was trying to do everything at once,” he says. “I was being pulled from loads of different directions, and things were piling up.”
Now, instead of a 9 to 5, Joe works in short bursts, giving him the freedom and time to support his wife and his two sons.
Join us as Joe tells us all about his journey to working fewer hours a day, and why they have more value.
