The Injured Brain

Although I have achieved so much since my near-fatal accident in 2008 and it may appear to some that my brain injury is an all but distant memory, that is...

It’s Christmas and the tree finally went up! Most of the presents are bought and wrapped thanks to @jasminelabrie so all we have to do now is enjoy the season! Merry Christmas everyone and I hope everyone has a great summer! I just spoke to a great bunch of year 9 students @aquinascollege, about achieving great things in life! We would be blown away if we knew, deep down, what we were truely capable of. Nothing great was never achieved in someone’s comfort zone! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! In the middle of nowhere, 20k’s from nothing, down into the valley and over the bridge, we found this special little gem. From the heart of Montana, I present to you... GREAT FALLS!!! Really... there’s not much to say about this place beside our car broke down and the people thought our Australian accents were funny... y’all. If you’re ever in that neck of the woods be sure to drop in and be laughed at by the locals. • Traveling the world solo with a traumatic brain injury was pretty damn hard b Somebody once told me that the best Christmas present you can buy for someone is a book! Get your copy of ‘Crashing Into Potential: Living with my injured brain’, today, and I guarantee you’ll make your mum a happy lady! (If you buy it now, you can have a cheeky ready before you give it to her!!!!) A great opportunity today to speak to the Frankston Morning Peninsula Learning LEN, thanks to Jo Posser. I loved connecting with you all and looking forward to working with many of you in the future! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! Great event with Caroline Chisholm Catholic College. #RYDA. As we grow up the choices we make can impact our lives. Today, the message was about stopping to think about those choices and the way in which they will have an impact! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals!
