Tell us about yourself

When I was in my 20's, I was working in a toxic environment in an unfulfilling career as an apprentice electrician. I was bullied, disrespected, and treated like I was worthless by my peers. This drove me to seek a new career through self-employment that leads to happiness and fulfillment through contribution to others.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Taking the leap of faith to quit a well-paying career in Telecommunications to become self-employed full-time.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Investing your time wisely in the activities that move you towards your goal one small step at a time while avoiding the shiny objects that slow you down.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Before you take the leap, get really clear on what you stand for, what your principles are, and what your offers are.
  2. Don't waste time trying to build courses without an engaged audience. Be mindful of your influences.
  3. Congruence is your compass, fulfillment is non-negotiable, and alignment equals authenticity.
