I’ll be honest...

Sometimes I feel like giving up. 

The jump from employed to self-employed was a big one and came with many unexpected challenges. I’m now the marketing team, an accountant and a business owner. I’m in sales, partnership development, human resources and...

There’s something I need to get off my chest. 

I hate exercising.

Only some of the time. Like yesterday, I had a lower body workout planned and there were a million other things I’d rather be doing. Watching paint dry was one of them.

I really didn’t want to train.

But I d...

Imagine you had a heart attack.

Right here, right now. The chest pain gripping you; squeezing like a vice. Left shoulder starting to ache. A shortness of breath has you clutching at your throat.

Don't worry, it’s all good because you survive - no harm done.

Don’t judge me... I’m super into 'The Bachelor'.

I hardly even turn on the TV these days but 'The Bachelor' gets me every time. The drama, the Osher and the complete trash they call

         I'll sleep when I'm dead.

All of those maxims above are stuffed down our throats on a daily basis and it really sucks because it can set us up for massive failure...

Last Friday night I ran my first charity event. For 13 long hours, a mate and I pushed a 100kg sled from 7pm to 8am the next morning.

We sweat, we swore and we raised over $10,500 for Gotcha4Life.

In 2018 I challenged myself to read 52 books in 52 weeks. I may have gone a bit overboard...

Below you'll find all the books with a rating and one-sentence summary. (The books with pictures were my favourites)

Fiction (mostly fantasy)

You wake up one morning and notice you have to go up a belt buckle, you aren’t as happy with what’s looking back at you in the mirror and you’re out of breath walking up the stairs – no biggie, you’ll do something soon.

Your health is a dragon you must acknowledge and b...

We are a society which values independence and ‘doing the work’.

I grew up learning to not complain, put my head down and fend for myself – it’s let to some high accomplishments and abysmal lows. As men, we are told a ‘real man’ means shouldering burdens and facing pro...
