My life is TRANSFORMATION.
I’m not into making things a little bit better, I’m into making them the best they can be.
I’m an author and advisor to an exclusive group of CEOs, founders and Wall Street pros on getting what they want in their businesses, careers and lives.
This work began for me 22 years ago, when as an associate in Goldman Sachs’ investment banking group, I stepped back from my career and began asking this question that came to dominate my life.
How Do You Create The Life You Truly Want?
Back then I felt stuck.
Before that my career and life had been a rocket ship.
My head down work hard method had propelled me from my working class background to the only job Goldman offered in Australia in my year.
I’d been promoted early, and landed a plum job in Goldman’s Silicon Valley office in ’99, but how quickly things change!
The Internet bubble burst, half my office was laid off, and for the first time in my career I was asking—
Is this the life you TRULY want?
I didn’t know.
I only knew I had to find the answer.
With my Giants cap pulled down over my face I headed to the self-help section of the bookstore thinking, who even goes over here?
That day I left with 33 books and a new obsession for personal development that would lead me to span the book ends.
Researching these topics transformed my life, but also led me to clearly see.
There’s A Lack Of Answers For People Like You And Me
Nearly all self-help and personal development is for people aspiring to success.
Yet when you’ve already succeeded there’s a lack of answers for what you do from here.
When you already know how to achieve.
You’ve made money.
Built great success, how do you take it all the way?
How do you go for what you TRULY want?
Unleash your potential?
Create generational wealth?
Do meaningful things in our world?
Fulfill your greatest purpose?
Become this person you are destined to be?
When I first began researching these topics this seemed incredibly complicated, but over tens of thousands of hours it became clear!
Doing What I Want
Over some 11 years, reading thousands of books and writing thousands of pages of ideas, I could see we needed something much more powerful.
Not just more of the same recycled ideas you see in nearly every book on these topics, but highly systematic methods for taking the best ideas and putting them to work.
Building this method for putting to work the best ideas, I transformed my own career and life.
After making four jobs changes at Goldman Sachs, as a Vice President I resigned to take time off to explore these ideas, before joining the Carlyle Group as a distressed investor ahead of the 2008 credit crisis.
Then, in 2010 I did something I couldn’t have imagined when I began this work 11 years earlier—I left Wall Street to share the solutions that took me tens of thousands of hours to develop.
Since then I’ve stopped at nothing to build mastery at these topics.
Investing multiples of what I did in my university degree, I’ve travelled the world seeking out and studying with true masters of personal change.
All of which is directed at just one thing—
Doing What You Want
My life is dedicated to sharing the best ideas I’ve discovered.
Through my books, newsletter, videos, Masterclasses, speaking I strive to serve more and more people with the best ideas for creating the business, career and life you truly want.
With clients, bringing to bear nearly two decades of top-tier business experience with the best of human performance, I deliver a broad range of services.
For some clients, it’s all business, and our work is all winning.
For others, I’m a trusted advisor on all topics related to getting what they want in every aspect of their life.
Born an Aussie, after 22 years in the U.S. I’m now American (and a Brit), living in New York City.
