This audiobook is designed to be helpful to anyone who wants to formalize their direct investments, improve their deal flow, or have a virtual or single-family office which typically starts at $15M-$30M in net worth, but if you are a centimillionaire ($100M+), this is the only audiobook ever created to really focus squarely on your needs.All of my clients are first- or second-generation families, most are entrepreneurial, and all have some desire to improve their direct investments into operating businesses and real estate assets. After meeting over 2,000 family offices in person, speaking at 250+ events, and signing agreements with over 30 families worth $100M+ over the last 12 years, I have seen that those newly liquid or ultra-wealthy make almost all of the same mistakes. I have also seen that there are gaps in almost every single-family office that are fundamental, costly, and easily avoided through models, processes, systems, tools, and guidance. 1.

Do you feel that if you could get rid of some of the chaos in your work life, you could take your performance to a greater level? Do you stay late at the office many nights, trying to empty an inbox that never seems to diminish? Do you have difficulty dealing with cantankerous bosses or passive-aggressive coworkers? Do you find yourself checking your BlackBerry - almost against your will - during dates, family dinners, or your children's soccer games? If you've answered yes to any of the above, chances are you feel fragmented, pulled in too many directions at once, frustrated. Your work life has taken over your personal life. In The One-Life Solution, Dr. Henry Cloud, consultant, best-selling author of the Boundaries series and Integrity, and a clinical psychologist, examines the workplace. He demonstrates how our failure to maintain a unified life with good boundaries at the office not only blurs the line between the professional and the personal, but leaves us less equipped to deal with the problems of today's workplace: stress, heavy workload, and a blistering pace. As a result, we are overworked, overstressed, and unhappier than ever. Through real-world examples from years of working with leaders at companies large and small, Dr. Cloud shows us how to construct and enforce better boundaries against the technological devices, bullying bosses, and distracting coworkers who invade our time and space. From conducting an audit of your time, to developing a policy of who you are and what you stand for, to learning how to overcome a paralyzing inability to say no, Dr. Cloud provides invaluable strategies and scripts for moving toward a more unified, coherent sense of self and a life that fully encompasses work, family, and spirituality. By starting to do what's best for you, you'll find the key to living the one happy, fulfilling life that only you can live. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr. Henry Cloud.
