What’s your morning routine?
Every morning I wake up at 6am and go for a run. During this time I am usually thinking about what tasks I need to complete during the day and how to sequence them in order of priority.
After my run, I’ll put these into my calendar on my phone to ensure I action them. On the way to the work I’ll listen to motivational or mindfulness podcasts (Jay Shetty is good) as it helps me to prepare for the day ahead.
What advice would you give your 20 year-old self?
I’m still in my twenties, but fast forward a few years and I would tell myself to be more accepting of failure.
How do you stay motivated?
I come from humble beginnings, so remembering where I came from and what I still have to achieve! There are so many more things to achieve.
What is the secret to success?
Hard work and diligence, making sure when something needs to be done that you complete it to the best of your ability. Even when failing, being able to be resilient and keep on going is the key to success.
What is your advice for people to fund their dream?
Set your goals, make a plan and stick to it. Stickability is key to getting to where you want to go in life.
What is the best bit of advice, or quote, that resonates with you?
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin
What’s your favourite restaurant?
A small pizza restaurant we found whilst visiting my partner’s family in Sardinia, Italy – Oasis Pizzeria.
What is the secret of living a longer, more successful life?
Be happy and be proud of who you are! Surround yourself with positive people who will support you to be successful.
What makes you feel alive?
Experiencing the great New Zealand outdoors. New Zealand has so much natural beauty and is usually taken for granted by those who have grown up here (i.e. me). I didn’t really realise this until I started traveling overseas a lot – we are so lucky. Waking up on a cool, misty morning and breathing in fresh air in the mountains away from town is my most favourable experience.
