A lot of people find it tough to start, they tell themselves they don’t have the perfect moment. What do you say in regards to that, how did you dive into it?
So at that point, I had no choice.
I was on the verge of broke, looking at my vision board I had made which had pictures of all these beautiful things. Beaches, rainforests, camping trips, traveling the world, traveling Australia, a successful business.
I said to myself that sooner or later, I probably won't be able to afford much anymore. So I better buy an old car and take my son on a road trip up north.
A friend of mine recommended a place called Krishna farm and so I take my tent and my kid. Three days, come three weeks, come four weeks and I'm loving this place, volunteering at this organic farm.
It was basically my vision board come to life. I asked the guy who was leading the farm whether he’s ever thought about doing a yoga retreat centre here?
He said yes, but they had neither the time or people to do it.
I said "I’m free, If you have free accommodation for me, would you be able to have me here and we try and do this together because I think my coaching clients would love this place".
I'm thinking won't pay rent, I get free food and I get to live almost everything on my vision board. And in return, I can create a business.
So that's how it started. We didn't have money. We didn't have experience and we basically didn't even pay ourselves in the beginning. I was actually mentoring people in my car at night, near the temple office, where we had the only bit of wifi on the farm.
We built a business that by the time I left, was turning over just shy of a million dollars with 14 staff.
