The Inspiring Story of Entrepreneur & Quadriplegic Perry Cross | #549

Perry Cross founded Accessible Homes Australia, he’s an in-demand keynote speaker and the founder of the Perry Cross Foundation on a mission to cure paralysis. He’s also a fully aspirated quadriplegic. Whilst it’s episode 549 of The (12 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast, it’s also the most inspiring episode yet.


A Little More About Accessible Homes Australia’s Perry Cross …

26 years ago, Perry Cross broke his neck in a rugby accident.

It left him paralysed from the neck down, and to this day he relies on a ventilator to breathe, and he requires 24/7 medical care. 

But that hasn’t stopped him starting and running Accessible Homes Australia, being an in-demand international keynote speaker (despite being told he should never fly again), and he’s the founder and CEO of The Perry Cross Foundation that has one mission … to find a cure for paralysis.

Not much I can add to that.

Putting aside the physical healing he needed to go through (which must have been immense), I started off by asking Perry how he coped mentally in those first few months.
