Hey there! My name is John Mayberry, Joda.
I'm from Auckland, New Zealand.
I'm in my forties. I've had a rich, fun, varied career. In the first kind of fifteen years of my life I worked as an actor, as an emcee, and as a commercial radio broadcaster.
And then kind of the last fifteen years, I've been working in marketing or advertising agencies, primarily on the discipline of brand experiences or creating experience for brands to show to their customers.
When that current chapter ended, I knew that I wanted start my own business, but I didn't really kind of know what to do or how to run a consulting business. And one day, a little invitation popped up on my Facebook page, and there was Sam Ovens. And he told me about an accelerator program, and I quickly enrolled, cause I saw it as a tool to coach me through how to run my own business.
And it was really kind of easy. So during the program, it was really easy. He'd say something. There were processes to follow, and there was like work things, you should go away and do them and apply that to your business. And it just made sense.
After the consulting program, in fact I'm only midway through it. But after just one week. One week. I had three paying clients.
Now I don't know. I've never done a program like this before that just provides that little of a transformation. It's just so cool.
If you're thinking about doing this program, like the people at Nike, just do it!
