America's First Lady.....(英翻中)

For such a wealthy couple, Pam Lopker and husband Karl live in modest style.

They have a house overlooking the ocean in California, a nanny and a cleaning lady who comes in once a week. “We live a long way below our means,” says Lopker.

An obsessive timekeeper, Lopker rises at 5.15 a.m. every day and either goes for a long run or to the gym. She returns home at 7.10 a.m. precisely to wake her two children-a boy of 10 and a girl of 8-and prepare their breakfast. She then drops them off at school on her way to work.

By the time she arrives at the headquarters of QAD it is already 8.30. Her day is usually full with meetings, either to do with marketing, strategy of sales.

Customers or potential customers come to her office at least three times a week, where she tries to sell them QAD’s products. She gave up designing programs in 1990, but she still takes an interest in technical work done by her research staff.

Lopker leaves the office at 6.30 p.m. every day in time to be hoe to see her children at 7 p.m. Her husband leaves the office at 6 p.m. since he makes supper for the family most evenings. It is important that the family eats together, says Lopker.

In the evening she spends time with the children, playing games or reading. Television was banned for the children last year-her son, she says, was spending too much time watching it and not enough doing his homework. still allowed to play on the computer and on his Nintendomachine.

    這對有錢的夫妻,Pam Lopker 和他的先生Karl 對於他們的生活保持著謙虛的態度。

    他們在加州有一間可以俯瞰海邊的房子,裡面有一位褓母和一個一個來打掃一次的女侍。『我們活的一值都很低調』Lopker說。

    Lopker是一個對時間很有規劃的人,她每天早上5.15起床,接著她會晨跑不然就是上健身房。在7.10她一定會回到家裡叫她10歲男孩和8歲女孩小孩們起床吃早餐。在上班的途中他會順便在她的小孩們去上課。

    在她到達QAD總部時已經是8.30分了。她每天都有滿滿的會要開,不是做市場分析就是行銷策略。

    顧客們至少一周會造訪她的辦公室三次,在她販售QAD產品的地方也就是她1990年放棄設計的地方,但她還是有雇用了一批員工來研究她有興趣科技。

    Lopker在下午6.30准時下班回家看小孩。而她的先生是在下午6點離開辦公室。她的先生會準備家裡的晚餐。『全家在一起吃飯是很重要的』Lopker說。

    她會花一些時間陪小孩子,玩遊戲或是看書。她的兒子被禁止看電視,她說因為他花太多時間看電視而不做功課。但是還是可以玩電腦和遊戲機。
