I Tell us a bit more about you! 

I am a fun guy! 175cm, athletic build and looking for the next ‘right’ application! For this, I need a strong ‘why?’. As I sold my transport business in 2015 to seek more stimulation, I really want to develop a product that can help people, won't be obsolete in 2 or 20 years or arm our environment.

I grew up in Mudgee (Australia) on a sheep farm selling Lamb and Wool. I am currently developing an electric skateboard just for practice of my systems integration skills. I just had a baby (Kosmo) with my lovely partner Kirsten.

Since I left school without the marks to get into University, I've been chasing money. After working as a draftsman in engineering firm, I moved to Canada to work as a snowboard instructor. I came back to Australia to do a business diploma and found that no one can really teach you how to run a business. Just need to dive in and continually progress. Which is why I borrowed $30,000, bought a truck and get into it, without customers. Three years later, I had two trucks and a really awesome Polish manager Jeremy.

I also started a muesli business called "muesli for me" with two other partners where you could choose your own ingredients and we would send it out to you each month. I now don’t value money as high as my time.

II How did you discover UNLOCKT?

I helped some girl I met in the street late one night to get a dentist. She introduced me to Gab who introduced me to Alex. He has always been a super fun and awesome guy.  I know he will be very successful due to his fun nature. I remember when he first tried to sell cuff links just to learn how online sales works, his method is really have a go and learn as you apply. I think he has evolved and that UNLOCKT going to be more successful as he is so committed to it.

Rather than making the money and then making my dreams come true, I work directly on that idea, focusing all my energy and time on making the dream a reality!

III Why did you join UNLOCKT?

I really enjoy personal development of self-help. Reading books like "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" in my in between times is like having a personal mentor 24/7.  The reason I pay for UNLOCKT is because I don't have the time to search through all of the self-help content and find the best stuff and put it on my doorstep for me to enjoy every day.

I think it's easy to slip into a routine that's painful at work and continue in that routine. UNLOCKT makes you question your every day as you should.

IV What are the milestones of your Self-Development journey? 

At the moment my goals are to finish my thesis - force feedback on an electric skateboard.

  • Exercise every day ( make it a priority)
  • Gain confidence in my own decisions.
  • Find an investment property for under $350 000  and purchase it.
