In his career, he has personally pioneered well over a dozen startup business ventures, spanning the industries of oil and gas, mining, hospitality, property development, e-commerce, technology, advertising, marketing, training and education.
Following a trade background with young enthusiasm his first real commercial venture launched an oil and gas pipeline-construction firm. Subsequent businesses ranged from the traditional, such as tavern and restaurants, through to the innovative ventures of online marketing, motor vehicle wrapped advertising and startup business services.
Two memorable ventures include founding a public company as CEO and being appointed Chairman of the Due Diligence committee to float the company as an initial public offering (IPO) on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). These were exciting times during the early Internet technology boom. The second major learning event he recalls with vivid memory was surviving his bankruptcy, losing everything, and then successfully starting over from scratch. He says of this time, “What a valuable learning privilege it is to have made more mistakes than most!”
These real life experiences have contributed well to develop his “Startup Business Series” resources that help others commence business opportunities correctly.
