Founder and CEO
“I created CEO Entrepreneur to help you get control of your business and build the future you truly want”
Are you ready for the future of your business?
Being ready means facing it.
Let’s face it. Our education system is broken. Designed back in the industrial revolution to dish out factory workers. Endless exams and relentless warnings for us not to fail, condition us to fear the very thing.
The outcome? Lack of clarity for our future. Fear of taking risks. Lack of practical know how to go it on our own. Imposter syndrome. Perfectionism. Stress. Overwhelm. Burnout. Failure.
We may have been educated to be great at what we do, but too many businesses fail because we haven’t learned to lead or ironically, let go of our fear of failure. So how can you go from employee in your own business—with you as the crazy boss!—to an inspired leader?
I’ve learnt some big lessons—about business, and about new ways to learn it. Less classroom, more context. Less impulse, more integrity. Less revision, more reflection. Less fear, more foresight.
I created CEO Entrepreneur because I don’t want to see you struggle, stress, or get stuck many times over… like I did. I created CEO Entrepreneur to help you get control of your business and build the future your really want.
Founder and CEO
I’ve gone from growing multi-seven figure businesses, taking a global health start up stratospheric and living large, to not so large.
From rags to riches and (seriously) back again.
From running my company valued at $100million to being $2.5million personally in debt and bailing my business partner out of prison (all in the space of 30 days!).
I’ve advised country ministers on national policy and multi-billion-dollar productivity programs. I’ve advised corporate titans, authored several textbooks, taught at and advised universities around the world, spoken at TEDx, and published in Forbes as a digital health thought leader.
I’ve designed learning at every level — and learned the hard way that capacity often starts with belief, and that success often starts with failure.
I now enjoy being a serial entrepreneur, investor, business coach and mentor. As founder and CEO at CEO Entrepreneur, I help transform entrepreneurs into CEO’s and small businesses into global companies; without stress or overwhelm.
If you would like to become the CEO of your business, please take the clarity checkup quiz first. If you qualify, you will be contacted to schedule a strategy call with me.

Read Our Manifesto
WHY – at CEO Entrepreneur, it’s where we begin. Why does one business owner thrive, where most just fail or barely survive?
We’ve seen business boom or bust from every angle and we know what it takes to succeed. As business owners, we stumble or fall because we’ve been taught to follow, not to lead. Formal education today remains modelled back from the industrial revolution, designed to churn out factory workers. It’s too slow, too scared – and too far from our business lives.
Our why stems from the belief that, through personalised learning and experiential mentoring, we can inspire and guide today’s business minds to lead and realise a better tomorrow.
Experience and Expertise – We impart experience and know-how, not untested theories, or unfounded trends. We pass on best practices from our stratospheric successes. We pass on lessons learned from our catastrophic failures. And we pass on everything else worth knowing as CEO of your own business in between. We triumph when you realise serenity and impact. We prevail when you achieve autonomy and wealth.
Embrace Failure – We believe our current education systems condition us to fear failure. We believe that embracing and learning from failure is crucial for professional and personal growth. As entrepreneurs, we succeed by risking failure and being resilient enough to try again when things go wrong. We help entrepreneurs rewrite and integrate perceived failures into realised wisdom, growth, and success.
Blended Approach – Whilst we have proven systems and processes for growth and success, every entrepreneur is different. We know that growing from entrepreneur to CEO of your business means understanding how to:
- develop and execute a vision and strategy
- build and lead a team effectively
- communicate persuasively, both internally and externally
- build, execute, and optimise measurable systems
- attract, make, save, and spend money
- take timely and measured risks and opportunities
- be resilient and ride inevitable storms
- embrace and learn from failure
- stand out and thrive in business9
We transfer our knowledge and experience through a unique and personalised blend of coaching, learning, mentoring, and consulting. With our coaching, you focus. With our learning, you advance. With our mentoring, you understand. And with our consulting, you execute.
It’s time for an inspired vision – At CEO Entrepreneur, we transform people into leaders, entrepreneurs into CEOs, and small businesses into global companies. We do this by inspiring change to the status quo.
We’re inspiring creativity—because it turns our roadblocks into runways. We’re inspiring knowledge—because it turns our fears into freedoms. We’re inspiring experience—because it turns our burnout into backbone. And we’re inspiring insight— because it turns our stress into success.
We work to bring you success, we publish to bring you advantage, and we curate to bring you community.
We’re CEO Entrepreneur.
We’re Inspiring Business Minds
Here's how we see the world
It inspires our work every day
Everything about CEO Entrepreneur is driven by integrity. It’s a compass for deciding where to put our energy and effort.
Honesty and transparency start with ourselves — and being truthful as we develop helps us all live worthwhile business lives.
The truth is liberating
Following our passion and dreams lights us up, and in turn tends to help us light up the world. Success grows from passion — we should care for it.
Inspiration makes a difference
Exceptional quality is hard to pin down, but absolutely crucial to strive for and indeed accomplish. Our capacity for great work is a precious resource.
Quality is paramount
Taking pleasure in our work is not only a great motivator, it’s completely contagious. Inspiration often starts with hard work, but should end in enjoyment.
