EM Media's agencies' daughter getting a kiss from a Pittsburgh Pirates

Finding Peace Amidst the Work

Finding Peace Amidst the Work

 

My name is Jim Emmerling, and I am the owner of EM Media, an award winning advertising agencey based in Steubenville, Wheeling and Pittsburgh. Ask my team to rattle off their top 3-5 things I’m known for saying, and, “This isn’t an 8-5 job,” will be somewhere at the top. There is no doubt in my mind that it takes more than normal business hours to be successful by traditional standards, but lately I’ve had to stop and think about how I measure success.

To be honest, I’ve never been good at relaxing. I listen to others talk about work-life balance, see pictures of them on social media relaxing on the couch with a caption that references binge-watching the latest Netflix show, and I feel completely dumbfounded.

I am active. I want to do things. I need to be busy. It drives my wife crazy, and honestly, she’s a saint for putting up with me all the time. She would be completely happy retiring to Amish country. I want the energy of the city always pulsating under my feet.

Lately, I have sensed the beginnings of a change in my heart and mind. This will be my first holidays spent without one of my parents around, and even though I spoke with my mom no less than 2 times day like clockwork, I think you can’t help but be reflective about how you spent your time when you lose someone close to you.
