Who are we?
Tech Life Balance is the brain child of two Aussie entrepreneurial friends who saw a problem that needed a solution – practically everyone they were talking to with tweens and teens was having an issue with managing their kids’ video game time.
Peter & Gary saw a great opportunity to create a product to help kids and families regain balance and life healthier and happier lives.
They partnered up, recruited investors and each week the idea is coming closer and closer to a commercial success.
Peter has strong and deep relationships in the IT community and has a long list of talented individuals he can call upon for this project.
After completing his computer science degree at Melbourne Uni he had the foresight to invest in internet service provisioning (ISPC) at the commencement. After selling his IT companies he semi-retired young to spend time with his 18 month old son.
Peter’s son is now 14 and spends way more video games than he would like. He also has a 10 year old daughter who loves to relax in front of her iPad.
Peter has studied a significant amount of personal development and is passionate about teaching our young people skills that will set them up for a balanced and fulfilled life.
Gary is a communications, change management and learning and development expert who for the past 10 years has assisted organizations around Asia pacific translate the ‘geek speak’ (computer systems and technology) and how to best use it to their advantage.
Prior to this Gary mentored and trained business owners. In this role Gary worked with Peter Kakris helping with 2 of his computer businesses, they have been friends since.
Gary has also had a series of small businesses. He is passionate about helping others to achieve their goals and make changes.
In his spare time Gary paints, writes, any beach activity and is the current world tickle tackle champion- in his home at least.
What Parents are Saying
We interviewed parents individually and in small groups to discover their concerns and frustrations with their kids video game use.
Here’s a snippet of what they had to say.
It does concern me that when they get off they don’t know what to do with themselves.
This may seem odd … but we do love video games!
We are definitely not anti-video games. Our kids love them and they offer a lot of opportunity for teaching life skills such as creativity, team work, problem solving and dealing with pressure. However, many of the parents we speak to and so much of our research is showing that the balance is out.
