Empowering Small Businesses with Jodi Brown
David interviewed Jodi Brown, Co-Founder of Leveraged Solutions, joining me from The Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Jodi also has a professional background as an IT Specialist, and is a trained boxer, marathon runner and mental health advocate.
Jodi’s first job was in IT support in the education system, followed by a similar role in the private sector, through which his communication skills led to him moving into selling IT systems, solutions and software. In his current business, Leveraged Solutions, he provides sales training and coaching to small businesses in effectively selling their goods and services and becoming more profitable.
Jodi also shares his personal journey of anxiety and depression, growing up in a home with an alcoholic father, and his battle with addiction. At a low point in his life, he enrolled in a boxing training programme and also discovered distance running. He actively participated in boxing tournaments and still runs half marathons, full marathons and ultra-distance events. Jodi has also trained as a facilitator for an organization called Livin, which provides programmes to high schools to openly talk about mental health and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.
