Gregory Englesbe is the CEO and founder of E Mortgage Management LLC, a mortgage banking company based in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. At the end of a long day, he enjoys nothing more than returning home to his family in Cherry Hill. He believes that maintaining this balance between work and family, while at times difficult, is important in the life of a businessman. It allows him to maintain a tight-knit support network for when times are tough.
Family are an integral part of life, and they motivate us to reach for success. Knowing that you have others to support, who benefit from your hard work, adds drive and purpose to tasks that may seem unimportant. Keeping the wider considerations of family and friends in the back of your mind will help you to maintain a wide perspective, but these connections need to be refreshed in spare time in order for this process to succeed.
Gregory Englesbe puts family ahead of work, but his organizational skills and self management mean that the two aspects of his life rarely clash. Prioritizing one over the other is a personal choice, and one that must be made for the right reasons. The decision to work hard does not have to impede on family life, and being a CEO and founder, he is certainly proof that the perfect balance between work and family can and does exist.
