A Queensland boy from Ashgrove and the fourth eldest of 13 siblings, Anthony left home at age 16 heading for Central North Queensland to mine gems. From then on the mining of gems has continued; only the type of gems has changed.
He is the proud father of three children, has a daughter and son-in-law, and two grandchildren.
Anthony has lived in most capital cities in Australia with an extended stay of 12 years in Melbourne, Victoria. While there, he spent several years counselling drug and alcohol dependent individuals and was instrumental in the raising of capital, as well as the construction and opening of an orphanage in India.
His professional background and passion is in sales, with real estate and wholesale motor vehicles being the two main sectors in which he applied this knowledge and expertise for in excess of 30 years. Most recently, Anthony has taken an interest in the purpose, performance and operation of call centres (in and outbound) and their contact strategies.
His interest and study in the fields of human potential, sales and business performance, encompassing modalities such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), linguistic hypnotherapy and coaching, began at age 20.
Since 2006, Anthony and his partner Joanne have dedicated their attention to the intensive and full time, self funded study of human potential, with a particular focus on metaphysics and science of the mind. They gained accreditations in a variety of communication modalities and worked with individuals and couples from successful businesses including Picture Perfect, Brazilian Beauty, Richardson & Wrench Realty, and The Good Guys. During this time they also built and subsequently sold a boutique mortgage broking business that focussed on property investors.
With a combination of qualifications, understandings and personal experience in the areas of training, counselling, hypnotherapy, NLP, facilitation and coordination of experiential personal development weekends, metaphysics and mind science, Anthony and Joanne moved through personal, undesirable conditions and assist others to do the same. These include: addictions of all kinds, physical and mental abuse, ailments, pain and illnesses, relationship and financial issues, anxiety, and a particular focus on depression - the leading cause of lost productivity in Australia.
Anthony believes we are always in transition, all of the time, with our ultimate aim being to express our highest expression throughout our life. He pursues opportunities to assist others transition easily and elegantly, to identify their personal definition of happiness and success, with enthusiasm and great interest.
His motto is to: Love the Life you Live.
