In three years, I built a seven-figure business that has worked with a formidable line-up of large companies, including some of the world’s corporate heavyweights, in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Paris, London, Amsterdam, New York, Washington DC and Lincoln, Nebraska! Our children’s entrepreneurship program, Lemonade Stand, has been delivered to more than 1000 kids across Australia and Singapore, and we released the online version in late 2018.

I’ve also delivered more than 50 keynote presentations to audiences of between 50 and 400 people, and mentored more than 50 startups.

  • using the 80/20 principle
  • applying agile task management tools
  • creating a distraction-free environment
  • knowing how to get myself into flow, or ‘the zone’
  • subscribing to philosophies that help me stay focused
  • meditation and mindfulness practices
  • an awareness and appreciation ...
