Most Memorable Business Failure
If you asked Terry has she had failures she will answer “no”. Each challenge in her eyes has been an experience to grow from. At the end of 2010 she left a financially thriving speaking career (she was the most booked female speaker in Australia for many years) and her very successful training company, to move to the USA with her two teenage sons. She knew very few people, had no personal or business network and had to start totally new, to begin again, to stretch herself just like she did 25 years ago when starting her company. She believed that she could make a difference in a country that was struggling to find its way back after the devastating financial crises.
To some this might not be much, however the next 10 months for Terry were challenging. She became aware that she had an autoimmune disease, her son had a dreadful skate boarding accident, their unit they were leasing, flooded. She was further challenged with the denial of her visa renewal. Her illness had thwarted her efforts to grow her business and as such she once again had to dedicate 18 hours per day, pulling 4 all nighters and create 644 pages to convince the US government that she did in fact have many positive attributes to offer the USA. She was eventually granted her residency once again and has not looked back since.
Terry lived through these challenges just as the way she lives her book title – “Why WAIT to be GREAT? It’s either NOW or TOO LATE!” She wants to change the world and create an environment where people of all walks of life will be able to achieve their dreams. She wants to impact more lives in a country that she loves and with everything that she has been delivered in the last 4 years, she still is a WARRIOR!
Terry found her niche early on in her career as an enterprise trainer, working for various organizations in the capacities of Training Coordinator and National Training Manager. The demise of an employer gave Terry the opportunity to fulfill a dream that she had held since she 21 years old – to start her own training business and in 1989 at 27 years old, People In Progress (Global) was born. She started her company with $167, a card table as a desk, a yellow pages phone book and a dream. 25 years on this dynamic and results producing company continues to educate and inspire thousands and thousands of people every year, to be their best and give their best.
During the past 30 years, as a pioneer in business education, Terry forged the way of incorporating personal growth into the business sector. Her belief was, if you heal the human being, the work being would flourish. It was this blend of business and personal growth training that allowed her to spearhead her company and guarantee her success. It was also here that she noticed people’s pain and the necessity to find a way to help people let go of their past, take the wisdom and move into their future with clarity and freedom.
