My entrepreneurial career began about 30 years when I was just 21 years old. After leaving University I began a career as a share market operator for a local stock broking firm. It was the ‘80’s and the Australian share market was in the grips of a mining boom.
The action on the floor was fast paced and exciting but back in the office the atmosphere in the accounts department was dreary and boring. I hated it. And so began my plans to escape.
The bright lights of being a real estate salesman got me and I began my 25+ year love affair with real estate sales. It was at this time I started devouring everything I could get my hands on in the personal and professional success category. In addition to learning from the top teachers in the area of human development and personal achievement, I observed people’s behavior and tried to distinguish the characteristics and skills of those at the top compared to everyone else in their fields.
During the next few years I devoured a ton of self help books, listened to hours of motivational tapes and saw my success continue to rise. At the age of 25 I wrote the largest industrial property transaction for my international commercial real estate agency and went on to complete 78% of all business for that department.
By the time I hit 32 I had become the most successful residential agent at Australia’s No.1 prestigious resort. In fact on one day in August 1991 I sold 11 homes in just 5 hours – a record which still stands today.
During my real estate selling career I managed to put together over 1000 transactions creating over $400 million in sales. I love real estate and still have interests today.
But even though I had continued to learn and grow, I felt that something was missing. Most of these great teachers talked about the big things people need to do to succeed—such as setting goals, employing discipline, and having a positive attitude—but my gut told me something was still missing. I saw too many people doing these big things, yet still falling short of reaching their goals.
I knew there had to be a better way. A ‘place’ where people could group, be enlightened, inspired, achieve their goals and to live a fulfilled life. And so through my own sales and marketing group I am endeavouring to provide a vehicle for people to achieve their life’s fulfillment.
My current company continues to grow at over 100 people per week.
But my journey does not finish here. I continue to look for like minded souls needing a vehicle to escape with.
