Here's My Story...

Many know me as an author, speaker, and business growth expert… 

but that’s not where my story started.

I actually started my first business at age 20 and sold it to a mate 3 years later for $3,000 Aussie dollars. I then spent the next 20 years working in corporate (for businesses like News Corp) and in Private Equity.

I worked in Private Equity for more than a decade… buying, building, scaling and exiting companies (and also doing a heap of turnarounds).

I’ve been a CEO 4x, and I’ve been involved in 26 exits, many of those for 8-9 figures. I made a lot of money for investors, and for myself, and I acquired a very unique set of skills and experiences on how to scale businesses the way that works.

But all through that period, I was trapped. Some people call it “golden handcuffs” … I called it prison. I missed seeing my kids grow up. My health was a mess. I was too scared to face up to the situation I’d created for myself so I persevered until enough was enough. 

I worked for ambitious private equity firms . . .

Creating multi-billion dollar exits . . . .


When my dad got cancer and died 9 months later . . . my entire perspective on business changed. I worked for relentless Private Equity firms that had one goal: Make as much money as possible buying businesses while paying the owners as little as possibleIt was a classic case of the big guy taking advantage of the little guy. I wasn’t proud of the work . . . and eventually the stress of it got to me. 

In the middle of a deal negotiation, I woke up in incredible pain . . . I had broken two molars on the right side of my jaw. And at the same time, my dad came back into my life. He left when I was two, and I’d lived up until 37 thinking he wanted nothing to do with me. 

The truth was, he was ashamed. He went from being an incredibly successful entrepreneur before 40 . . . then he lost all his wealth. Sure, he eventually made the money back, but he made me realize something very important: The people I was working for were taking advantage of business owners that were just like my dad and I’d been totally blindsided by this reality my entire life

Getting to know my old man was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Yet 12 months after the day we really connected, he died from an aggressive cancer.  After living without my dad my whole life, and then finally getting to know him . . . I had an epiphany: I could no longer work solely in Private Equity. So, I quit and never looked back. 

That’s why today, I work on the other side . . . with business owners who create real value. And I share with them the secret playbook of Private Equityexactly how P.E. firms operate, building stunningly successful businessesto help entrepreneurs like you scale beyond 8-figures so you can achieve a life-changing exit and realize the wealth and impact you deserve.
