In April 2018, Sam was called as a key witness to the highly-publicised Royal Commission into Financial Services in Australia (a little like a Senate Hearing in the US) following a number of administrative errors by he and his staff. Sam was banned for three years from practicing as a financial adviser. The subsequent two years were an awakening and one heck of a journey!
Today Sam describes the Royal Commission as a ‘gift’ and the subsequent media storm as “happening for him and not to him” drawing upon his deep philosophy of helping people and contributing back to the community whilst also taking ownership and responsibility for his shortcomings.
Sam was the guy others copied. His website was often used as a winning example of digital marketing via website design principles, email list building, lead magnets, online courses, content production and social media adoption for traffic and conversion. It’s these and business management skills he brings to the next stage of his career with Launch Grow and Scale Your Business.
