Hi, I'm Wayne, and I'm a learning junkie.
Counting back the last 10 years, I've spent more than $300k USD investing in my own self-improvement, and here's the story of how I got started.
My first encounter with coaching was when I started Bowling. During my peak year I was training 5x/week for the National Under-23 team, 3x/week with my school, 1x/week with my country club, and 1x/week 1-on-1.
I started 1-on-1 coaching when I wanted to break into the national youth team, and thankfully my parents understood how important it was to me. They were struggling with their business but yet they sacrificed their own lifestyle so that I could afford Bowling equipment and coaching. For this and many other reasons, I'm eternally grateful.
The most memorable story of how they came to realise how important this was to me was when I went home with my exam results. I was about 14 or 15 years old. I did not do well on the exams and my Mum said she was going to make me quit...
