What do you care about? / What’s most important to you?
Developing an optimal lifestyle that fosters growth, connection and opportunity for my family and within the community is most important for me and business plays an important role inside that. Outside of family and business, my interests and passions are the world of coffee, travel, human potential, spiritual development and health & well-being. It’s an ongoing journey to structure these elements into our daily lives.
Where have you been?
Growing up in western Sydney, Australia and playing rugby league into early adult-hood defined me as a young person. After some travel and exploration I was fortunate to be introduced to the founding brothers of Young Guns, Scott & Trent Young. Being welcomed into their business was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for me as it has lead me on a journey into leadership and entrepreneurship. I’ve had great mentors along the way who both support and challenge me.
Where are you today?
Today, I am a proud Australian – Canadian, with a young family residing in Ontario. As a business, Young Guns are building something special in North America. The team and culture we’ve developed during the past 5 years is evidence of the business living its purpose of uncovering our people’s Best Versions. Together, we’re executing our model that delivers value to our customers within the supply chain. A genuine grounding in gratitude towards the team and the journey so far is what sums it up today.
Where are you going?
We’re an ambitious bunch with plans to scale our model across North America through our partnerships. To make that journey, personally there is a lot to discover along the way and I plan to make reflection and self-discovery intentional activities within my rhythm to ensure the team and business unit are well-led into the future.
Read daily and broadly, expand your horizons and pay attention to the way you’re living and interacting with the world. To distill down the three thoughts or sayings that anchor me today, I’d like to share: “If you actually set and achieve your goals, who could you become?” (paraphrasing Jordan Peterson) “The obstacle in the way” (Ryan Holiday) and “Discipline equals freedom” (Jocko Willink).
