Travis is a serial entrepreneur, major risk taker, business commentator and health & wellness trail blazer.

Known for being the man who has never written a business plan, Travis began his entrepreneurial journey like many entrepreneurs – essentially broke and living out of the space that his business occupied. In this case, it was Result Based Training’s first location in South Melbourne.

Jones’ ‘do what it takes’ mantra and work ethic helped grow Result Based Training into an internationally recognised gym, launching six gyms across three states within the first 24 months. The last five years has seen the growth of Result Based Training from one gym in 2013 to 21 by February, 2018.

His companies include:

- Result Based Training, a specialist body transformation gym in South Melbourne, with revenues in excess of $10million dollars.
- Think Tank Australia, a cutting-edge coaching business that helps guide and coach SME's on how to grow their businesses into successful brands. Started with his wife Liv Jones, it saw $1.5million turnover within its first year.
- Attain Digital Agency, also with Liv, is a digital marketing agency that manages over $1.5million dollars worth of client marketing campaigns.

Apart from their corporate ventures, both Travis and Liv have also gone on to create their passion project, If Not Now Then When, a foundation established to change the lives of children all over the world.

His 1stbusiness (a casino party company) grew from just 2 casino tables to over 50 and the largest gaming events company in Australia. With a casino background he understands risk vs reward and where the true value lies in what you put your time and money into (hint: it’s not gambling!).

Now Ronan Leonard connects small business owners to support groups through the innovative concept of virtual Masterminds.

Without a co-founder or a business coach solopreneurs are often overwhelmed with to-do lists. They need impartial advice to get the right support to help them achieve clarity and better results.

Ronan believes we’ve lost our connection to a “tribe“ A community that will help you solve your problems and accelerate your learning. He believes that there is more value in making real peer-to-peer connections than paying external contractors who have no vested interest in your success.

In his spare time he enjoys red wine and playing poker (but not at the same time)

Lisa Hellwege knew there was demand for this service and she used all her savings to get started. In this interview she tells of planning and calculating the numbers and starting slowly.

2 years later and she is opening multiple clinics. 

2 important aspects: a very clear niche and dedicated foucus from the Founder.

If you are curious what the procedure is, it's removing ear wax. 

The micro-suction technique involves inserting a little vacuum cleaner into the ear that sucks the wax out.

<p "It's a dry technique, which is different to the technique people are used to when they go to their GP to have their ears syringed with water, and it has a lower complication rate. It's the preferred method of ENT surgeons, which is where I learnt it.”

Lisa talks about how important this service is for overall health and well being.

It's a business story and a health check at the same time.

In 2016 Dayana Brooke reached a turning point where she felt travel could no longer be treated as an endless commodity without any thought of the consequences to the environment. It no longer aligned with her own personal views and beliefs of caring for the environment, animals and being a passionate vegetarian for 18 years. She saw a need to change the way people travel and so she set up The Sustainable Traveller, to help people become more aware of the environment by offering only eco friendly travel options. 

 

It has been a slow and steady start creating a change in the travel market and it’s been liberating to finally raise awareness on issues she feels passionate about and to align her personal views and beliefs with a love for travel.

 

Dayana has received amazing feedback from people, businesses and within the travel trade who love what she's doing with The Sustainable Traveller brand. It’s exciting to finally have a platform to offer amazing eco friendly travel options, tours, products and eventually offer an online directory for travellers to easily search and book. So it’s a brand for both travellers and the travel industry to collaborate.

 

As Dayana says: "If we all choose to make just a small change to the way we travel, we can collectively make a positive difference for the environment."

What happens when you take a marketing and advertising background, add an English degree and then uncover a passion for entrepreneurship? Really cool stuff.

That's Kate, and she's the implementer of awesome ideas over at EOFire.

How did this come to be? Well, when she realized after all those years in marketing and advertising and the banking industry she didn't need Corporate America to determine her worth. Instead, Kate decided to determine her own worth by taking all of the knowledge and experience she'd gained and put it towards helping others recognize, create and build the business they've always dreamed of, but never thought possible.
