Ep 115 The richness of the experience

We end 2018 with some reflection, picking up on an episode we recorded almost a year ago to the day. It was episode 100, when Rooster Radio co-host James Begley unpacked what was the hardest year of his life, in raw detail. A number of our listeners were a bit stunned - it seems not many people understand the financial and personal impact that running a startup can have. After posting the episode, there were more than a few phone calls from concerned mates asking if Begs was holding up ok. (But there are many gold nuggets on business and resilience in that episode, so make sure you wind back to episode 100 if you haven't already - here's the link.) Now, a year later, a lot has happened since that fateful episode. The rollercoaster has continued, but this time with more amazing successes and achievements. James' startup PickStar got funded, launched new tech, grew significantly and the future looks bright .. and yet, of course, 'the unknown' always remains. So in this episode, Andrew...

Ep 114 How Tobi Pearce built global fitness empire Sweat

Tobi Pearce and his fiancee Kayla Itsines are behind the remarkable Adelaide based fitness empire Sweat, which is hitting around $100 million in annual revenue, and saw the couple's wealth valued at $486 million on the AFR Young Rich List in 2018. The company was initially built on the back of Kayla's unbelievable social media presence (which by the way has passed 10 million followers on Instagram and 23 million on Facebook) and their product, the Bikini Body Guide - giving users a work out plan, nutrition information, recipes and more. Now, Sweat is becoming the 'Netflix of health and fitness' with millions around the world consuming content on a monthly subscription via the Sweat app. It is hard to believe that just 10 years ago, Tobi was homeless and trying to find his way in life. We talk about his personal journey and meeting Kayla. We go deep into the mechanics of how the duo built this amazing company and the strategy behind it. Tobi also talks about managing rapid growth, le...

Ep 112 SouthStart Series - Antony Ceravolo on witnessing 9/11, a $300 million exit and changing the world of workplaces

"I opened my cab door that morning, and watched the first plane crash into the building above our heads." Antony Ceravolo was living the corporate life as an investment banker in New York's World Trade Center when he saw the 9/11 attacks happen in front of his eyes. It was the series of moments that would change the world, including his own. In the fallout, many investment bankers lost their jobs and Antony was forced to turn to his own business ideas. Now, Antony is known for building global tech companies. First there was Red Bus Media, an out of home media network, and then LoveFilm, a DVD distribution and video streaming company that Antony sold to Amazon for around $AU300 million. He could've comfortably stopped there. Instead, he moved home to Adelaide and built his next company, Sine, developing technology to make it easy for visitors, contractors and staff to check in to the everyday locations they attend. Sine has checked in more than 20 million visitors, working with some ...
