.Business and Finance interviews John Molloy, Managing Director, Oomph.ie, providing competitively-priced life assurance and advice on running a business.

What was your first job?

While in college, my first temporary job was a part-time barman in The Tuning Fork in Rathfarnham (sadly recently demolished). My first full-time job was an Account Manager in Norwich Union Insurance, Dún Laoghaire in 1988.

What would you regard as your greatest achievement to date?

Giving up smoking.

In three words or less, how do you define success?

Contentment, freedom and happiness.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Learn from your competitors, but never copy.

How do you motivate yourself and your staff?

Even if we are on the right track, we will get run over if we just sit there.

If you could step into the shoes of one business person for a day, who would it be and why?

Charlie Munger, American financier and philanthropist, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and the low-key partner of Warren Buffet. If I could step into his shoes for a day it would lead to a lifetime of accrued knowledge.

What’s your motto?

I don’t have the power to make life ‘fair’, but I do have the power to make life joyful.

What are your aspirations for the future of the business?

To grow our online life assurance portal, www.oomph.ie, to the largest online independent provider of competitively-priced life assurance to families in the country by 2020.

To grow our Core Life Assurance, Pensions and Investment Business, Orca Financial Ltd to a €1,000,000 recurring annual income business by 2028, adding value through timely transparent financial advice to our clients nationwide through continued long-term relationships.

Even if we are on the right track, we will get run over if we just sit there.
