293 – Start-up airline Fly Airly aims to disrupt how you fly from Sydney to Melbourne

Imagine starting an airline. Well, today’s guest and his two mates just did. And you can fly as often as you want for one (pretty reasonable) flat rate.

Luke Hampshire is the co founder of Fly Airly – a very different kind of airline.

“How different?” Well, put it this way, Fly Airly flies only between three of Australia’s main cities – Melbourne, Sydney & Canberra – and it’s a membership-based pricing model in which they charge a flat monthly fee which allows you to fly as often as you like.

Cool, huh? Brave, definitely!

291 – What running a business you absolutely love sounds like with Gary Elliott of Leisure Options.

Gary Elliott runs Leisure Options – a business laser-focussed on on providing holiday and travel options to people with disabilities. When I first identified Gary as a potential guest, I made the assumption that he ran the business because he had family effected in some way by a disability. A pretty strong why, you’d have to agree. Well, I was wrong!

He bought the business because it was under done – and the upside was huge. He now has his wife and kids involved and he L O V E S what he’s doing. If you want to know what it’s like to not have a job but earn good money then listen in – as Gary and his team have mastered the art of loving what they do.
