Rich Trotter, CEO of Clifton Heights-based Rosati Ice, tries to keep his day balanced with sleep, work, exercise, and downtime, writes Kenneth Hilario for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
He usually wakes up between 5 and 5:30 AM, except on Friday mornings, when he gets up at 3:30 AM for church.
He begins the day with a prayer and breakfast, then catches up on current events and local sports. He also replies to overnight e-mails and works on current projects. When not traveling, he leaves for work from his Perkasie home at 8 AM for the hour-long drive to his office in Clifton Heights.
“I try to be productive during my drive, so I make a few first phone calls,” he said.
Before going into the office, he visits the local gym. Then, during the day, he analyzes reports, plans sales trips, conducts meetings, and does tastings of new and existing flavors of water ice. He usually skips lunch and leaves the office around 5 PM.
Once home, he has dinner with his wife Debbie and relaxes while watching game shows, news, and local sports before going to bed by 10 PM.
