028: The Magic of Real Paw Paw, Building & Running a Dramatically Expanding Business, Exploring the Innovator’s Creations & Helping Change the World with Darren McArthur

iTunes | Stitcher

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Darren McArthur in late 2018 by a friend of mine who was on the search for a product that could help him with red marks on his skin. Nothing he had come across was really working. He then discovered and connected with Darren and Darren’s extraordinary ‘The Real McArthur Paw Paw Products’. After using these products, my friend’s skin became as clear as it has ever been! So he put me straight onto Darren as this man has a product that the world needs to hear about.

My fiancé and I now use his products too by the way and they are awesome!
We talk about much more than just the paw paw products I might add.

We discuss the story of Darren’s Father – Tom McArthur the Paw Paw man. We discuss how Darren went from just a handful of Paw Paw seeds to creating and launching his incredible business, building the team and keeping up with orders as the business dramatically expands, space, building particular purpose sheds, freshwater crayfish, Darren’s unique trial and error process, creating cannabis oil, the creams that can help with arthritis, acne and psoriasis plus some more interesting topics such as the carbon in the air that could power everything, diets, meditation and much more.

Darren lives on the Adelaide River, about 1.5 hours south of Darwin, so it’s quite a unique episode in that Darren lives so remote that he called me over Messenger using the wifi at the local post office – hence the background noise.

This was a really interesting conversation with a great person, and I look forward to seeing where Darren takes his business.

So please enjoy this conversation with Darren McArthur
