Being a father is not easy.

The past two months at Sky Perth have been a whirlwind. My schedule was packed with 14 flights, driving seven different cars, and even spending four days on a ship. I covered over 2000 km by road, worked on eight boats, and managed to shoot over 20 terabytes of footage. My work ranged from TV series and tourism campaigns to events for charity, autonomous ships, and mining projects. I even found time to ride 40 km on a bike to cover an event from start to end.

Balancing all of this would have been an amazing feat on its own. However, it coincided with a monumental personal event: the birth of my daughter. She turns two months old in just two days.

Running a business and being a father simultaneously has been incredibly challenging. There were times when the weight of responsibility felt overwhelming. Between the long hours and constant travel, I often found myself torn between the demands of my job and the desire to be present for my family.

Despite the exhaustion and the countless kilometres travelled, every moment was worth it. The joy of returning home to my daughter’s smile after a long trip was incomparable. These past two months have shown me the true meaning of hard work and the importance of balance.

It’s not easy to balance business responsibilities and fatherhood, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Every flight, every kilometre driven, and every late-night edit was a step towards building a future for my family and Sky Perth. As I watch my daughter grow, I know that all the hard work is paying off.

Lessons Learned:

  • Prioritise Balance: It’s crucial to find a balance between professional and personal life. Make time for your family, even amidst the busiest schedules.
  • Value Every Moment: Whether it’s work or family time, be present and appreciate every moment. Both are equally important.
  • Embrace Support: Don’t hesitate to lean on your support system. Whether it’s family, friends, or colleagues, their support can make a huge difference.
  • Stay Organised: Efficient time management and organisation can help you prioritise your responsibilities.
  • Accept Imperfection: It’s okay not to be perfect. Sometimes, just doing your best is more than enough.
