WHAT DOES YOUR MORNING ROUTINE LOOK LIKE?
Haha, how much detail do you want…
1) I wake up at 0630, roll over and kiss my girlfriend, then I drink a big glass of water and go to the toilet where I post my daily social media… This can take up to 20 minutes (for the post), the sitting on the toilet bit just kinda happens. :P
2) I go into my home gym and read over my mission statement and values as I warm up. Depending on how I feel will dictate whether I focus on getting pumped up or getting more grounded, so I’ll listen either ‘pump up’ or ‘self love’ music and get myself in the right space for the day. I will also do some form of training depending on how I feel, usually CrossFit style training.
3) I’ll start slaying my jobs for a few hours…
4) I don’t eat or drink anything other than water until about 10am where I break my fast with either a fresh homemade juice or a greens style drink.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
Freedom. I can literally do what I want, wherever I want, with whoever I want, anywhere that I want. But more importantly is the fact that you get to change the world, you get to write the future.
WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING PART OF BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
The start… Getting over the hill hurts. So many hours of effort to get squashed so many times. Earning only enough to barely survive for years just to try and get something off the ground. That’s where most people quit, it’s too hard for people to go through the hardship of starting out.
WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU DO FOR YOURSELF EVERYDAY?
Grow. I grow everyday. Whether it’s reading a book or learning a lesson from something that hasn’t gone well. You are only as valuable as what you can offer the world, so if you aren’t growing you will cease to be able to provide value for others and as an entrepreneur that’s pretty important.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO INVEST IN WHEN STARTING A BUSINESS?
Apart from yourself…. That’s a hard one… A good bookkeeper and accountant haha!
WHAT’S YOUR GREATEST MOTIVATION?
The brevity of life and the current state of humanity. People are held back, and it’s unnecessary. I want to help people meet their truest selves which will massively increase their quality of life and the quality of life on earth as a whole.
HOW DO YOU STAY FOCUSED/PRODUCTIVE AND MAKE THE BEST OF THE SAME 24 HOURS THAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS?
One - My mission is bigger than me so my motivation levels are huge.
Two - It’s fun when you get to live your passion everyday so I’m just like a big kid doing what he loves.
I’m sure EVERYONE would make the most of the 24 hour window if they loved it!
WHO DO YOU LOOK UP TO/FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA/USE AS A MENTOR?
Tony Robbins, Dr Joe Dispenza, Abraham Hicks, Ekhart Tolle, Wayne Dyer, Bruce Lipton
WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE OF BUSINESS ADVICE THAT YOU’VE EVER GOTTEN?
When you are building your team make sure you have weekly meetings to make sure everything stays in alignment.
WHAT IS THE BEST BUSINESS ADVICE THAT YOU’VE EVER GIVEN?
I don’t give specific business advice, I just get people to see their true self which allows them to do whatever it takes to succeed in business (or anything else).
But if it had to be specific for business… It would definitely be the along the lines of the importance of building systems and being as efficient and streamlined as possible.
WHAT DOES NO ONE TELL YOU ABOUT BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR?
To be honest it’s exactly like expected. I tell people I coach that you literally have to be wiling to die for it.
