Combining his passion for technology and music, Sam is also working on launching a range of boutique guitar effects pedals which will be designed and built right here in Australia.
You have had a huge transformation recently, please tell us about it Sam.
As with all big transformations, they don’t happen overnight. My transformation started in 2013 when my wife was diagnosed with cancer. It was tough going through that experience while running a successful business and raising a child. This led to the decision to sell one of our businesses, which itself proved to be more stressful than I’d imagined. After selling the business, I decided to take a break from the business world and enter the academic world. That didn’t work out like I thought it would!
Fortunately, an opportunity to invest in and join the board of a young Australian software company came along in 2017. This re-ignited my passion for business. It was around this time that I noticed changes in my health that resulted in many doctors appointments and tests. The experiences since 2013 have driven me to take stock of who I am and what I need to do with the rest of my life – the most important being to live purposefully. Throughout this time, Vesna has been there to guide me through each step of my transformation.
What were the biggest challenges you needed to overcome to get to where you are now?
Without doubt, the biggest challenges I needed to overcome were my health and my mindset around starting up new business ventures! Going through a battery of medical tests and appointments brought back bad memories of what my wife went through. When it comes to starting new business ventures, I knew what we were up against – long hours, setbacks and an extended period of little to no income. Such is the entrepreneurial life!
To what extent has working with Qt helped you to transform your health and life?
Vesna has been instrumental in helping me during my transformation. The tools and techniques applied during sessions and afterwards have had a real impact on my mindset and self-healing. With techniques such as visualisation, time-line and hypnosis, Vesna has helped me build and maintain a range of positive habits that I practice each day. These techniques along with meditation, a healthy diet and physical exercise are having a positive impact on my life which is leading to improved health. I have also noticed a significant increase in my energy levels and motivation.
How has transforming your thinking impacted on your health, relationships and success?
I would say that visualisation, time-line and meditation has changed my thinking and neuroplasticity directly leading to self-healing. My healing has resulted in greater energy and physical strength which in turn has increased my focus and motivation towards my businesses, hobbies and passions.
What has been the biggest change for you?
I’d have to say that my energy levels and a consistent positive mindset have been the biggest changes. These changes have allowed me to consistently complete healthy habits leading to high energy levels. I am reaping great rewards for the effort I put in!
Having now made this change, what do you now enjoy most about life?
Having more energy translates to productive days and a much more fulfilling life. I am able to do all things I need to do throughout the day with plenty of energy left over after work and over the weekends for my hobbies/passions and socialising with family and friends.
How would you sum up your transformation?
I would sum up my transformation as enormous yet still a work in progress! I have made great strides in transforming my life this year, and over the years with Vesna’s help, yet I know there is still more work to do – I am work in progress! Thanks Vesna!
