How to get from Survive to Thrive Mode

I’m a History-Geography Teacher in a K-12 School on the Central Coast of New South Wales in Australia. 

I’m a Futures Creator (Listen to The Lightning Round for more Insight here).

My biggest passion is Society and Culture. 

Diversity, empathy and opportunity is what makes me tick. Knowing there is always a way, even if it is different to the way we originally perceived it.
