Pippa O’Connor on working with her husband Brian: 'We kill each other, but we work well together'
Pippa O’Connor has revealed the secret to her business success is husband Brian Ormond – even though they 'sometimes kill each other'.
The Kildare woman (32) has turned her modelling career into an online business where she runs website Pippa.ie and also holds workshops Pippa’s Fashion Factories.
“He is the organiser and negotiator. If I say I want to do X, Y and Z, he’ll always know someone,” she said.
“He’s an ideas man. I am creative but I put things on the long finger a little bit, whereas he would say, ‘Pippa make the phone call now’.”
“We work well together. We kill each other too like most people.”
While they may butt heads from time to time, the model would not have it any other way.
“It really is great though, I suppose it’s what I am used to now, but I love working with Brian because I am not saying goodbye to him in the morning and not seeing him ‘til later in the night,” she told the RTE Guide.
“We’re very involved in everything. He asks my opinion and vice versa.”
Pippa is mum to Ollie (3) and Louis (5) months and insisted parents shouldn’t put pressure on themselves to get the perfect balance between work and home.
“My idea of balance might be very different to someone else’s. Everyone’s idea of what is the ideal is different, so you shouldn’t put yourself under too much pressure – just do what works for you.”
