What has inspired you to start this venture?
i.BeyondBliss was born out of my self-need for a personalised and accessible natural way to reduce stress, boost happiness and increase peak performance. I was fascinated by the possibility of executing the power of the mind over matter to achieve powerful transformation. I recognised the dramatically growing stress levels and unhappiness in the community and the need for a unique mental & emotional wellness program for the busy urban professionals which is practical and sustainable.
What are your future aspirations?
My mid-term goal is to set up a Holistic Retreat Centre in Australia and the long-term goal is to be recognised as an international brand. The purpose of the retreat centre is to encourage people to explore and discover their extraordinary self at incredible destinations of Amazing Australia. i.BeyondBliss offers exclusive personal and corporate holistic wellness retreats for those who are seeking to unplug, unwind and escape into our handpicked natural scenic lush green lands of Hunter Valley, spectacular hillsides of the Blue Mountains and sensational beaches at Byron Bay allowing them to experience ultimate mind and body detox and build their mental and emotional resilience.
