Karl Schwantes is the founder of Brisbane jewellery store Xennox Diamonds, and author of the book Rock Her World, a tome every bloke should buy and adhere to – if he wants to make his lady happy, of course ;0) Karl’s also the winner of last year’s KPI Pitchfest, a competition in which business owners compete to deliver the most compelling pitch for their business.

An even better title for today’s episode is ‘How to get shi* done’. Today’s guest, Brent Grundy of global trampoline playground franchise Flip Out, turned an idea in to a $40M business in just 2.5 years, employing 800 staff across 13 countries in 34 locations. Oh, and just before that … he was near broke. Listen is an he explains how to move mountains.
