You spend the first 33 years of your life trying to figure it all out. You wander the world like a nomad with no real answers to be found. With a restless yearning inside, you avoid any sort of commitment and ask yourself daily if you’ve gone crazy… will I ever resolve this?
You then wake up one day and take MASSIVE action and become seriously committed. From there you dig a big hole for yourself over three years and end up $30,000 in debt from day trading the stock market. The universe then intervenes with a series of random events that knocks you around and asks; are you really listening?
And then you truly wake up. You decide to do something deemed as crazy. You follow your heart without question… without caring for consequence…. do or die… your doing it!
Without any business or internet skills and no money, you co-found a online health and wellness company called 180 Nutrition. Within three and a half years you help shake up the supplement industry, become a multimillion dollar company and nominated for Australian Business Telstra Awards finals.
You begin to trust this whole following your heart thing and then start a podcast. The podcast hits number one in the health section in iTunes, gets millions of downloads and you get to talk to some of the leading experts on the planet in wellness. This opens you up to a new world of possibilities that you didn’t even know existed… neuroscience, quantum physics, neuroplasticity, epigenetics… and even though these words sound complicated, you realise when applied they are a GAME CHANGER… Like life changing game changer.
You can then keep this information to yourself or try and help others. Filter the technical aspects to make it practical for daily life. So what do you decide to do? You listen to your heart once more… you don’t fight the deep yearning inside. You step down from everything you knew to allow in everything you could become. You get out of your own way, start a new podcast and you ‘Let It In’.
And this is my creation to help you too.
Welcome to my website. I hope you stick around. Ae you ready to Let It In? 😉 G.
