Dec 28, 2020 | 0 comments

Everything we do here at The ONE Thing is about time. Specifically, helping you better invest your time so you can achieve extraordinary results.

When you invest your money, you have an expectation of gaining a return on that investment. While this is a widely known expectation, most people don’t hold their time to the same standard. As we talk about living an extraordinary life, a lot of it comes down to not living a life of regret  — and one of the most common regrets we hear is that people spent too much time at work, at the expense of investing their time with the people they love.

What would it look like if you put your family first? If you made your family your ONE Thing, and made your business come after? That’s what Jon Vroman did. He woke up every morning saying he was going to be the best dad in the world, but he realized his calendar wasn’t saying the same thing. Find out what it looked like to go on the journey to becoming a family man with a business and not a businessman with a family.
