Raised in an entrepreneurial family here in Perth, John learned the ins and outs of the ecosystem from a young age, with business a common dinner conversation topic. From his lived experience, John mentions how entrepreneurship is engrained in the DNA of West Australians, and how it is a cultural focus for the state.

He speaks about the challenges of reaching the largest health market in the world (the US) due to timezone differences, but the benefits of being in WA outweigh any challenges. He also discusses how many who come to Perth for a few years often end up staying for many more as they fall in love with the lifestyle WA offers.
