Ryan's journey began with a simple lawn care business, a venture that taught him the fundamentals of entrepreneurship.

Ryan candidly discussed the anxiety and stress that came with the fear of losing clients, a challenge many entrepreneurs face. However, he could adapt and evolve his business model which enabled him to overcome these hurdles.

    9 - Overcome Challenges to Build a Seven-Figure Company with C-Squared Professional Consulting's Craig Cooke

    Your host, Scott Bywater, talks with the Principal Consultant of C-Squared Professional Consulting, Craig Cooke. Starting a business is akin to embarking on an adventure, filled with excitement and unknown challenges. Craig's initial years were a testament to this, as he described the first five years as "extremely brutal." The struggle to keep the business afloat was real, and the temptation to quit loomed large. However, it was the timely encouragement from his network and the wisdom found in a book gifted by his mother that kept him going. These moments of near-defeat and the subsequent resurgence taught Craig the value of perseverance and the power of a supportive community.
    The conversation with Craig took an intriguing turn when he discussed how his background in Chinese kung fu and qigong influenced his business philosophy. The discipline and systematic approach inherent in martial arts became the foundation upon which he built his company. Meanwhile, qigong offered him the tools to manage stress and maintain a work-life balance, crucial for any entrepreneur's sustainability.

    Your host, Scott Bywater, talks with the Owner and Creative Director of Viim, Steph Hilfer. Steph dived into her early days, the time when her business was just a side hustle while she juggled a demanding full-time job.

    7 - Reinventing Real Estate: Radical Approach to Community-Oriented Housing with Ian Ugarte

    7 - Reinventing Real Estate: Radical Approach to Community-Oriented Housing with Ian Ugarte

    Your host, Scott Bywater, talks with the Property Developer, Educator, Advocate for Affordable Housing, and Entrepreneur, Ian Ugarte. Ian's story begins in a family of plumbers, where real estate was a familiar topic, albeit not a successful venture for his father. His early experiences in property investment were fraught with mistakes and negative gearing, leading to a financial pitfall after acquiring seven properties. It was a stark realization for Ian that conventional wisdom was not always the wisest, and it prompted a pivotal shift in his approach to investing.
    At the tender age of 18, Ian made his first foray into property investment, backed by his parents' support with the initial deposit. Despite the advantage, he quickly learned that privilege didn't equate to automatic success. The early days were marred by anxiety and despair, not due to a lack of funds but from a lack of informed decision-making. It was a period of education for Ian, as he navigated through the emotional turbulence and learned the hard lessons of his errors.
    Ian's transformation from financial instability to stability is a testament to his resilience. By educating himself on positive gearing and reevaluating his portfolio, he managed to sell down six properties and emerge from the red. This journey wasn't just about financial independence for Ian; it became a mission to empower others to overcome similar hurdles.
