#15 Reinventing Yourself

Episode 15 is all about Reinventing Yourself with John Morrall

I originally wanted to interview John about opening and creating a successful passion + lifestyle business – he’s the owner Jetts Noosa, our favorite gym where we live in Australia.

But when I sat down to have a pre-interview chat with John, I realized there’s so much more to his story that I wanted to share.  John’s led an extraordinary life and is truly a master of reinvention with a unique attitude that has helped him pivot successfully, time after time.

So some backstory – a high school dropout, John created a successful career in the hospitality and nightclub industry in Victoria.  But after his life was threatened and fearing for the safety of his family, he knew it was time for a change.

As a burley biker with earrings, tattoos, and a ponytail, he then completely reinvented himself as a salesperson for the music retailer Brashers and worked his way up to state manager for the whole of QLD.

Living the dream – he toured with the Rolling Stones, bought b-day presents for Celine Dion, traveled with the Brisbane Broncos – but in the midst of living the dream, his marriage broke down and he knew it was time for a significant change.  So he left Brashers, bought a franchise and moved to Noosa.

But while he was working fewer hours, his lifestyle still hadn’t changed – he was still smoking a pack a day, was overweight, on anti-depressants, slept with a sleep apnea machine, and after a heart attack at 44, he knew it he needed a complete lifestyle overhaul.

Which led him to applying and getting accepted to Season 3 of the Biggest Loser in Australia.

And the rest I will leave for the interview!

What we cover:

  • When to reinvent and how to approach reinvention
  • Listening to input even if it gets your back up, at first!
  • Adapting AND staying true to yourself
  • What it’s actually like being on Reality TV
  • How to use “unfairness” to motivate you
  • Taking risks and backing yourself
  • Reinventing the most important parts of you
  • Finding your True Passion through reinvention

I’m looking so forward to introducing John to you.  He puts 100% into everything he does, really lives life fully, is present and has a huge heart – all of which you will feel during this interview.

Let’s dive in.
