About Great Work Life

A great work-life balance is important. Balancing work commitments, continual learning, investing in your future, and enjoying life is not easy, but it is possible.

Why Great Work Life?

I built GreatWorkLife to share the best advice possible on the key areas of learning, earning, investing, and enjoying life.

My 26 years of working in business, specifically in the information technology sector, have been very challenging and rewarding. My career enabled me to travel the world, get married, move country, build a house, have a family, enjoy great vacations, and build numerous businesses.

Since leaving the corporate world, I have spent the last decade running my own businesses, which bring me great joy.

I want to say I am a genius, but I am not. I work hard and do things the right way, always treating people with respect and dignity.

Some career highlights:

  • I had my first management position at the age of 18.
  • I managed a helpdesk of 40 people at IBM at age 23 (within two years of leaving University).
  • I have managed direct and indirect teams of thousands of people.
  • I have led teams that have delivered hundreds of millions of dollars in process improvement and business transformation programs.
  • By default, my performance rating in performance reviews over the years has been “High Performer.”
  • I have been promoted ten times in 23 years, a promotion every 2.3 years.
  • I have conducted over 700 job interviews and hired hundreds of people.
  • I have visited 55 different countries on business and pleasure.
  • I am a certified financial technician with the International Federation of Technical Analysts.
  • I founded LiberatedStockTrader.com in 2011 to help stock investors learn trading.
  • I founded 3Wise Media in 2022.
Presenting To All Managers In India
Presenting To All Managers In India

For the last 23 years, I have led local and remote teams for some of Silicon Valley’s giants. I have also held various global management, leadership, and strategic corporate transformation roles for Hewlett Packard, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and DXC Technology.

My specialty is building high-performance teams worldwide to enable business transformation. At the same time, I enable my team to realize their own success and promote them as much as possible.

If it happened in the corporate world, I have seen it already. I have been in high-growth environments, caught up in takeovers, mergers, and, more recently, part of a pre-merger cleanroom operation. I have witnessed mass redundancies, strikes, and cultural depressions.

I have seen terrible managers, witnessed unprofessional behavior, and met managers, directors, and vice presidents who spoke utter garbage the whole time.

I have also worked with a few truly great leaders who inspire and lead from the front with great business knowledge and charisma—enough charisma to see you through bad business cycles in the hope of better times.

So, everything you read on this site is not written by a freelance copywriter or a student straight out of college; it is written by someone who has been in the trenches for decades.
