If you feel the need to know more about me before you bother listening to one word from me, fair enough. Here’s my ‘Brief Career Profile’:
In my final year of secondary school I was Justice Captain and runner-up School Captain and over the next two years I was invited to and attended 3 international conferences. I completed my first degree, a Bachelor of Business in Entrepreneurship at RMIT University and discovered a love for event management. I soon founded White Pony Entertainment Pty Ltd. Whilst completing a second degree in Marketing from RMIT, I lead WPE to conducting over 600 events at over 30 different venues all over Melbourne, managing up to 200 staff and catering for up to 2000 people per event.
As the event industry evolved, I decided to hone my skills at digital marketing, running several successful campaigns for a number of clients. In 2016 I took the role of State Manager of Queensland at GWP Pty Ltd, and lead the expansion of the company into the sunshine state, taking it from 0-500 agents in 2 years, whilst overseeing the management and allocation of over 8 million in funds. In the last 3 years I have also conducted a podcast, presented at my own personal development events, and worked with and/or fundraised for a number of amazing charitable organisations and community groups.
Original ‘ABOUT’ from White Pony Network:
”At WPN we’re exploring the extraordinary people in our network who can hustle as hard as anyone, have found their purpose, are adding value to others and therefore generating wealth. I’m searching for what I want to do and I know that I’m not on this journey by myself, as many people that I speak to are giving similar answers. My follow up question to ‘What keeps you busy during the week?’ is ‘Do you enjoy it?’ This is not often a definitive ‘Yes’, so I then ask ‘What do you want to do?’ Some version of ‘I don’t know’ is nearly always the answer. Which is perfectly normal. I’m here to scratch my own itch too. Further to this, most of us don’t understand just what it takes to make it. Let’s explore this.
Here lies the opportunity to create a network of brilliantly minded individuals to study and learn from, and to study and learn with. We’re looking to learn from people who when asked ‘Do you enjoy it?’ Their answer is always ‘Yes’. And not just that, those who have great strategies in place to generate more wealth allowing them to do more of what they love. And they work hard. I want to help those who don’t know what they want to do, and in the process figure out exactly what I want to do. I’m very fortunate to have a lot of great conversations. It is time that they were recorded and shared with everyone.
I have two university degrees – a Bachelor of Business majoring in Entrepreneurship and a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing, both from RMIT University; I have attended The Global Young Leaders Conference in U.S.A, The Global Young Leaders Summit in China and and was awarded the prestigious Jaques Nasser Scholarship to attend the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organisation Conference in U.S.A; and I have run multiple businesses (see the White Pony Ventures page) including one that has held over 600 events and hosted world famous talent.
From all of my research and experience, there seems to be a 3 step process to success:
1. Find purpose
2. Add value
3. Generate wealth
With the overarching fundamental being ‘prepared to hustle.’
It seems that they must be completed in that order for one to feel the happiest and to feel the most successful and accomplished.
Through the Podcast, the Blog, the Pony Post emails, Social Media and plenty more, we’ll be exploring the efforts of many talented people at all levels of business, investing, fitness and sport, philanthropy, psychology and success. The aim is to identify what is working for these people, and how we can use these tools and systems in our everyday lives to reach the answers of ‘Yes’ and ‘Yes’ when we’re asked ‘Do you know what you want to do?’ and ‘Do you enjoy what you do?’.
Are you ready to hustle?”
Yeah in hindsight, hustle was definitely the wrong word
