Anthony Richardson - WWO Podcast Episode 49
DRIVEN TO SOLVE PROBLEMS.
This week on the show we are joined by Anthony Richardson. Owner, founder and brainchild behind Ausfit Torsion Bars, Anthony is a unique example of the entrepreneurial mind.
I asked Anthony on the show because of his relentless energy in his pursuit of an idea or venture as well as his drive to solve problems.
Anthony's specific questions was:
"Ausfit Torsion Bars – a simple concept in a market place where every gadget is the next big thing – it would have be easy to let the naysayers win and simply give up, but this NSW country boy didn’t give in. What part does an upbeat attitude and positive energy play in cultivating one of the most successful fitness stories to come out of Australia?"
We covered a range of topics from when he had to work several days without sleep to avoid hitting rock bottom, to his first lawn mowing business, through to learning business lessons from family.
Enjoy the Show.
