Q. What is the biggest thing that holds you back from achieving your dreams?
A. I guess work commitments and the struggle of day to day activities that keep me so busy that it’s difficult to find extra time to focus on things that really do matter to me. I tend to be on automatic just living the day to day grind.
Q. What is your biggest fear?
A. I am fearful of getting old because I am young at heart and intend to stay that way.
Q. What is your biggest downfall or the one thing you could change that would make you a better person right now?
A. I could be a happier person because as I am getting older I am getting grumpier. If life was less of a struggle, I am sure that would help.
Q. If you died today how do you think you would be remembered? How would you like to be remembered?
A. I would be remembered as a character, as someone who was different, a good hearted person who was true to himself. Someone who had quick witted humour. Someone who never stood by and watched things happen that shouldn’t happen, I was always there to help. I am happy with that.
Q. If you knew what you know now at the age of 21 what would you do differently?
A. I would be a lot smarter with my money and would have invested in property at an earlier age. I would have had a different view about my long term future. I would have been a lot wiser in relationships and wealth creation. Regardless of this I still feel I have had a good life.
Q. What worries you most about the future?
A. The fact that there might not be much of a future the way the world is heading, especially for our children.
Q. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?
A. I think everything that I do is worth remembering. I try to create good memories with my daughter and always live life to the fullest so it all counts in my eyes.
Q. When did you last push the boundaries of your comfort zone?
A. It was so long ago that I really don’t remember. Maybe I need to get out and do more.
Q. How many of your friends would you trust with your life?
A. Maybe 2 or 3 on a good day.
Q. Who has had the greatest impact on your life?
A. My kids do because they keep you real and show you that nothing else matters in life apart from your children and your family.
Q. What do you want most in life?
A. A good, strong future for my children.
Q. Which is worse: failing or never trying?
A. Never trying is worse because I have tried different ventures and failing really didn’t matter that much. The fact is you don’t know unless you try and without failures you may never learn how to succeed. Yes I have tried and failed but failures are not as important as trying.
Q. Does it really matter what others think about you and do you worry about this?
A. It matters to a degree but in the end it shouldn’t really matter because you are who you are and how you are perceived by others is of no real consequence to me. So I guess the answer is no I don’t really worry about it.
