In 2017 Harry decided to take a break from the financial world. His job with Barclays had wound down and he was ready to focus on other aspects of his life. This does not mean that he became less busy, however. Harry spends his days raising his 5 and 8 year old children. He also has increased his exercise regiment. Additionally he spends time with many entrepreneurs in a consultant role to lend his decades of expertise to up-and comers, including his wife Amy Nauiokas, the founder of a new startup called the Anthemis group.

Harry believes that, to be successful, an entrepreneur needs to be proactive. Prioritize what is most important and work down that list as quickly, and carefully, as you can. Harry Harrison believes that successful entrepreneurs do not allow tasks to build up and stagnate because the work load can become overwhelming.
