But it wasn’t always that way. As an orphan growing up in Western Australia, Andrew survived neglect, abuse and tragedy. In spite of this childhood filled with so many negatives, he grew into a man described as contagiously positive, funny and endlessly enthusiastic. Andrew has taken what life has thrown at him and grown from it rather than letting it overwhelm him. The one consistent component of Andrew’s life has been his dedication to the world of entrepreneurialism.

Since then he has gone on to sell encyclopaedias door-to-door, traveled the world as an international sales manager for a large Japanese shipping company, worked in the Great Sandy Dessert for a gold exploration company, been a publisher, had his own SCUBA school and retail store, and worked as a commercial diver throughout Australia and Papua New Guinea to mention a few of his business experiences. Andrew has founded and run two boutique marketing and corporate communication firms in Australia.

The experiences and observations gained from working with hundreds of clients became the major catalyst in writing his series of business building books.
