The Best You, Finding Your True Purpose
What is my background briefly?
I actually started working in night clubs, as a DJ at the age of 15, eventually managing clubs and promoting big parties.
From my late teens, I got into sales and marketing, I’ve always loved sales and marketing. I then got into a timeshare at every level and then real estate – from national and international sales and construction to property development.
From my late thirties to early forties till I’ve been now promoting personal development events and “kinda” opening new ways of doing things in Personal Development.
Does it seem like a logical background to what you do now?
I think everything we do does become part of who we are, and obviously, it can or is being applied in what we do. So my experience in promoting parties as a teenager has obviously helped me running the big events I do now, I’ve just moved from evening events around music and alcohol to day events with speakers and attendees dedicated to helping people become the best version of themselves.

With the end of jobs for life, this could be a good area for you, how many ‘careers’ do you think people will have in the future?
I think people are starting to understand and appreciate life is more about finding your true purpose in life. We have to pay the bills, but its more about paying the right bills in the right place for the right reasons. The Wellbeing industry is worth 3 trillion dollars, so careers like coaching, life coaches, personal trainers, yoga instructors, authors, speakers, trainers, experts in social media, media, in making money, etc are obviously on the rise. And so many careers have not even been created yet….It’s about understanding what you are good at and appreciating that people would pay you for you to share your expertise and help them grow and evolve.
How easy/hard is it to explain to people that wealth does not equal happiness?
Success is still associated with financial success so people still focus on the money. It’s all good being financially independent, but it does still surprise me to see so many people put happiness on hold. ie they will say to themselves I will be happy when… I have a girlfriend, or I will be happy when I have x job, or I will be happy when having x amount of money in the bank.
Being successful is not about a single goal or endpoint, nor is it about having some imaginary blessed life. Successful people are most often in a state of continual improvement. Yes, things along the way show them they are doing the right things: winning Olympic gold or making another business deal. . . but that is not a success. That is the by-product of the process of successful thinking.
Being successful is a process of being and becoming.

How can people find out more about you & your work?
People can find out more about my work through my web pages.
Through The Best You web page they can see all the different things my brand The Best You has to offer, the free online content, the live events, our magazine and so much more.
Anything else you’d like to add / we should have asked?
What I would like to add is that if I have learned anything all these years on this planet, my many years as an entrepreneur, as student, promoter and creator of personal development is that we are all here on this planet for a reason. Not only we are here for a reason but EVERYTHING happens for a reason.
We need to discover what that reason is, we need to be open and listen to what the “world or the universe is telling us.
I believe we are obliged to becoming the best version of ourselves. If we do will be closer to finding our purpose in life and with a purpose we can also find a way to leave a long-lasting legacy!
