You’re going to love this
episode. Let’s get to it!
How did Calvin get to where he is now?
- Calvin does not believe himself to be a great
coach. He does, however, think himself a good speaker and trainer,
but he does not have enough patience for coaching. Traditionally
coaching is about your clients telling you about their problems,
and then the coach asks a lot of questions to help their clients
figure out the answer.
- Calvin likes to tell people the answer
immediately. He is impatient like that, but he knew from an early
age that he wanted to do something that would make a difference in
the world. At the time, he did not know what that difference
- Calvin did a lot of charity and non-profit
work, and while he was doing that, he went through a period of
studying to be inactive for five suggests. He went on to a
specialist drama school, where he was selected out of a few hundred
kids to participate in the program.
says his school was quite similar to the one in the TV Show Glee.
Calvin could not sing or dance, but he could act, and even once he
realized he did not want to be an actor, he knew he could use the
tools he would gain through the program. After that, he got into a
small business, and he had an incredible opportunity to work for a
man called Christopher Howard, who was the top dog in life coaching
at the time.
Robbins would get 1,000 people in a seminar, Chris would have
9,000. Chris lost everything and decided to rebuild his life after
moving to Bali. Out of the blue, Calvin managed to jump on a
webinar that showcased Chris’s presentation about his $9,000
- Calvin did not have any money at the time, but
he knew how to build a team. He had a non-profit organization of
about 120 people in his final year at university. Calvin reached
out to Chris and told him that he could not pay him, but he could
help him build his team. He told Chris he would work for him for
free for a month, and then Chris would give him the training
program for free.
Which things did Calvin find worked for him?
remembers the experience of coming back from working for Chris the
most vividly. He spent six months working for Chris, and he went
from not knowing the guy to being his right-hand
- Calvin started as Chris’ head trainer to then
going through, realizing that he wanted to do the process himself.
Calvin knew he could make money for Chris, but it was like selling
Tony Robbins. They were selling themselves.
- Calvin decided to see if he could back himself.
He thinks this is a strong point for audience members. He would
hope anyone listening to Action & Ambition is willing to put
something on the line to make their ambitions
Calvin was looking at moving back to Perth, which is where he is
now, his fear was not that he would fail but would never even
manage to get started. He felt like he would come back with this
fantastic six months of experience and just return to a normal 9-5
felt like the moment would pass him by, and so on his final day in
Bali, ready to fly back to Australia, he realized that he needed to
find a way to commit himself to take action. He says that a lot of
being successful comes from your motivation to be
How has Calvin’s partner been integral to his success?
- Calvin says that he has been a blessed man. He
has two wonderful women in his life. His first partner he was with
from when he was 16 to 26. He says that relationship was pivotal
for him because she did not believe in Calvin going over to work
- Calvin left his fiancé to go work for six
months for free, so it was not just about the finances. He was
leaving his family. When he returned, they were able to build
something special together.
relationship ended up not working out, and it finished the way they
wanted it to. She has a beautiful life, and they are still in each
other’s lives. Calvin believes if you focus on being of service to
the universe, you will attract the right people.
- Calvin’s first-ever client introduced Calvin to
his brother Jason who is now his dearest friend. Jason has been
working with Calvin for eight years currently, and Kim works in the
office next door to them and works with them.
- A few
years ago, Calvin ended up meeting their sister, and two years ago,
they got married in the Maldives. Calvin is delighted t6o be a part
of their fantastic family and feels like they have all grown into
bigger and better humans as a whole.
