Son of Time

A thought leader on time. I have been talking about time since 2002, that’s when I joined the family business. Back then, Trapper and I worked exclusively with Day-Timer, the original paper planner made famous in the 1980s. Trapper was Day-Timer’s time management expert, as was known as “Father Time.” When I met the executive team for the first time in the boardroom, one of them said, ” you must be “son of time?” We all laughed, and the nickname stuck.

Fast forward nearly 20 years; times have changed. Not that time itself has changed; it hasn’t. We still use the same calendar and the same clock, but the times we live in have changed. We’ve become compressors of life trying to jam an unrealistic number of activities into our daily allotment of minutes. I call it the great time dilemma. I help people solve their time dilemma.

Father Time

Trapper (1935-2010) enjoyed a career that spanned more than 40 years in the retail and service industry. In 1986 he joined Dr. Charles R. Hobbs to be one of his Time Power seminar facilitators. Soon after, Hobbs sold his company to Day-Timer, where he solidified his interest in the subject of time. Through the Day-Timer connection, he traveled 2.5 Million miles working with 350 corporations and organizations.

He was a professional member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), recipient of the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, the speaking industry’s international measure of professional platform skills.

*I was five years old in this picture with Trapper.  That was back when we had nothing but time.
