Sharing is caring!

Let’s be real for a moment; business ownership is one of the world’s toughest assignments. Even more so is farm business ownership, with its numerous complexities and subtleties. At the same time, business ownership AND farming can be very lonely places.

In our roles on-farm, and as we all know, we have “ups and downs”.

And so, my question is:

who do you have in your corner?

… who do you have around you helping you be at your best?

… who do you call on to ensure you are resilient, confident and competent?

Engaging a psychologist was a turning point for me – one of the greatest choices and changes I have made. Truly a life-or-death decision. A very real ‘sliding doors moment’ for me.

As a result of my decision to seek professional help and get my head right, my life now is beyond my wildest dreams.

Given this, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Dr Dave Anthony to our podcast.

Dave is a registered psychologist with an impressive list of qualifications, affiliations and experience under his belt. He is passionate about changing the way men engage in therapy and improving their quality of life.

Dave is the CEO and Co-Founder of Mantle – a national, confidential, virtual mental health service for men. Their mantra is to see men across Australia move from ‘below average to good’ and from ‘good to great’… to help them grow and be better versions of themselves.

Join us for this incredible interview in which we explore:

  • how are men wired;
  • what drives us?;
  • what is it we actually want?; and
  • where we need to focus to be at our best.
