Between running a self-reliant water technology company and maintaining a steady personal life, Riggs Eckelberry, CEO and Founder of OriginClear, relies on the dedication to a hearty well-being, valued moments, and the use of trusted colleagues to be successful in and out of the workplace. Always striving to nurture the mental and physical aspects that keep him going, this balance between home and work represents the healthy prioritization of personal and professional activities as a stable rock in the global water crisis, while enjoying much-needed downtime at the same time.
To nourish both areas in his life, Eckelberry finds the best way to do that involves the simple matter of making time and distributing work among trusted team members. “You can’t just be a work machine; you’ve got to get out of the system. I believe the way to do that is to assign team members to take up slack, so you are not required to be on deck 24/7,” he shares. Familiar with the demands of leading a thriving business, this reflects the understanding of an experienced entrepreneur who knows what it means to be actively present in any environment and make the most of each cherished moment.
