#136 Quintin Tufoua – SWAG: Someone With A Goal 

Meet and enjoy the drive behind Perth’s S.W.A.G. podcast, with founder and host Quintin Tufoua.

Through his SWAG podcast, Quintin interviews some of Perth’s resident millionaires in order to connect aspiring entrepreneurs with the knowledge and wisdom of successful local business people. He himself has set the goal of generating $50m in 10 years.

Quintin candidly shares how his relationship with money has developed and how the podcast has played a key role in his journey to turn things around from being, by his own words, ‘an over controlling dickhead’ to the man he is now – comfortable in his own skin in among others.

Quintin goes deep on the lessons he’s learnt from the millionaires he’s interviewed and how, despite common perceptions about anyone who has generated a wealth of money, underneath they are still people with similar issues and concerns. He puts forward how one of his major learning points is that the focus isn’t solely on the money but balancing that with health, family, faith and fulfilment.

As I often find when talking with people who are open and proud of their faith, Quintin is a wonderfully strong and passionate man who is very clear about his priorities in life and his pursuit of them – which is so refreshing to be around.

For the listener, in addition to the wealth of insights Quintin shares, you will be given a great example of just where taking imperfect action can and will take you.

Bryn

Hello, and welcome back to WA Real I’m your host, Bryn Edwards. Today we’ll be speaking to Perth’s answer to Napoleon Hill, founder of the S.W.A.G. podcast, Quintin Tufoua.

Quentin. Welcome to the show.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Thanks, man. Thanks for having me. I’m super chuffed to have you here, man. I’m excited.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, I mean, what You’re doing as well dive into unlocking secret mysteries. And you know, it was no joke calling you the Napoleon Hill. Because that’s in essence what he did as we’ll find out.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

I am blessed for that. Like that, for sure

 

Bryn 

like that for sure. So one of the questions I like to ask my guests at the start is how they came to be in Western Australia. So you came here in 2007? Yep. From New Zealand. Yep. To play rugby. Tell me about that.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah. So prior to 2007 I was grew up the eldest of five my mom.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah, raise burns. Well, my mom, all I saw was her was two jobs. So she worked two jobs and I was left home to really just take responsibility of my younger siblings. And so here’s some of the oldest Yes, yeah. So responsibility was initiated me early on. Yeah. cooking, cleaning, working. So I doubt in our with our sort through her through her hard work. And I am more of a visual learner. Yeah. And so I picked up those those characteristics. So go through school, I was not very good at school, just when they ate lunch pretty much in other people’s lunch as well. And if anything was good, I was good at sports. I played rugby and your union. Yeah, and met a couple of grades, and then went to university didn’t get the qualifications to get into any sciences or any law degrees or anything like that. Just the arts. That’s pretty much my grades were suitable for. And I had the intention of going into political science wanting to become a politician of all Wow, yeah, right. That’s just cute. What what are you studying political science. I’m like, I don’t know. Maybe I want to become a politician. Maybe so. So yeah, so then the three years in the run this time it’s around 2006 and playing sport, and then the beginning of 2007, my coach for the university rugby team. had come earlier so had been coaching here in Perth. I’ve flown back and said, Okay guys, Perth are looking for players in these positions. And one of them was my position, which was, which is wing right winger. And so I put my hand up and I said, Mom, I’m going to Perth. A couple of tears shed and because I’m the eldest and because she was relying on me, yeah, yeah, yeah, it was it was a hard time really hard time for everyone. So leaving the nest came to Perth, no family, no one type sport that year. I think Calum under we’ve covered who I played for when near the bottom and three of us play field plays. I came across with me two other players. We brought up to like second from the top, you know, second second division. So we we hit you know, we were pretty good. And then I was supposed to leave 2008 and lo and behold, I’m still here. So during that, there we go and vote. There is a go on roll. Yes. So a girl, like my girlfriend, she was my girlfriend at time. 2007 they landed in January. had a girlfriend at two at the end of January. And that same girl has been with me from from now. Yes. So yeah, so yeah, so she’s 2008 state. And then from then on I all I knew was factory work. All I knew was blue collar work, no business no nothing, no aspirations to be anything else rather than I knew that I had to work hard. I told my mom were two jobs and if I wanted to make more money, I would get another job. Okay, put another job on top until there was a function of time. It was always a function of time. Yeah, that was that was really just for me was all I knew was that. And so the the aspirations of where I wanted to be came out of two situations.

 

Bryn 

come to that

 

Bryn 

in a minute. We’ll come to that in a minute

 

Bryn 

question for you.

 

Bryn 

Obviously your mother was a large influence influencing you. How much was the game of rugby?

 

Quintin Tufoua 

How much was a gamer? Yeah.

 

Bryn 

In terms of influence.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

I played rugby for a long time.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah. Well positionally luck.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, look look like and and I just found a lot of the values of the game teamwork, leadership accountability. No bitching

 

Quintin Tufoua 

at the ref.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, no bitching at your mates and go for it. Go for it go forwards. good solid fight. Very tribal. Yeah, go to battle with 14 other brothers

 

Bryn 

shaves off.

 

 

Hundred percent,

 

Bryn 

particularly. Growing up in New Zealand. Yeah. where it’s like, you know, one down from breather. Yeah.

 

Bryn 

It’s

 

Bryn 

obviously been shot you

 

Quintin Tufoua 

man coming from? Because Pacific Islanders some Simone. So we Naturally, just physical contact kind of people. We are very, very tight and our family family huge. And so rugby was a normal, easy transition. You got a brotherhood there. Yeah. Your physical you get to beat up guys physically and you know, legally as well. Yeah. And so that that come that confrontation or that battle. And then the the the process of going for Tuesday Thursday was training, you know, so you’re building up to it to a game where it was like in the arena of gladiators and you’re training for that. So your mindset is I think a lot of it’s checked my mindset in terms of training discipline, okay, rockin up it’s raining it’s it’s snowing, you know, it’s hailing. You know, you don’t want to be there, but you rock up and you do the work. And so a lot of a lot of, I think, in terms of how that shaped me Was it strengthens me mentally Sport does strength and obviously physical contact, it’s strengthens your body as well. And then the added bonus to that I’d say was the the ability for me to really build camaraderie, that teamwork and that leadership and then take on that, that core responsibility I felt responsible for my position okay? With I’m on the wing, no one’s going to get past me I can guarantee you my talk, I’m going to make my tackle, you know, then I’ve got to get up I’m going to fight for the ball. Because if I don’t, I’m you know, I’m dragging the team down there’s going to be gaps. Exactly. So you have that onus you have that responsibility not to your not just your team, but to yourself to say cue, your disposition. There’s other people fighting for this position. You got to prove yourself. And so from there on my mindset and rugby has been a huge influence. 10s of you know, and there’s a lot of bruises and a lot about bones broken from it. You put your body on the line, but i think that’s that’s all part of tests. Your character 100%. And yeah, I pay a lot of a lot of my where I am today to, to rugby and what’s been taught me.

 

Bryn 

So you founded the swag podcast. Yeah. So at a summary level, what a swag stand for. What’s it about?

 

Quintin Tufoua 

swag stands for someone with a goal. Yeah. And, and that was my intention came out of the the ending of 20 in 2018 Christmas 2018 I was like the like that the whole month December. I’m going through a process of self development on something like I was going through really triggered I was going through a separation with my wife. At that moment I was probably the worst person to be around because I was introduced to business very early on like, probably like a year earlier and so on. I became so driven to succeed because I’d known nothing else. No, just blue EQ. So when I was introduced the business, I’m like, I love it. I am so passionate about I want to make money. I wanna, you know, money was a driver because if you come from, you know, not having anything you got this money was obviously a main factor for me. So I was so driven to succeed, and then I was also a frickin dickhead to be around. No. And so, yeah, so that, that I it’s a blessing at the time, it wasn’t like I was so I went through the depths of, you know, just China. Really just really is just trying to look into why I was the person I was coming from being the artist. Everything was served for me was controlled. Okay, guys, let’s This is how it’s done. Okay, I need you to go wash the dishes. I’m going to cook dinner, bam, bam, bam, everything was systemized for me. And so my head high expectations on everything. So my title When I would such a dickhead to be around like a road and lose my shit, I would absolutely be like, Ah, you know what, I don’t want to be around me. So my wife said at the time I’ve had enough you should get the hell out. And so that that from December was a whole process of really just self discovery, and really looking into the essence of what was really the core of my unhappiness or the core of my control freak and all this stuff. So a lot of self development, a lot of self reflection and self, you know, just an internal dialogue with myself. And then what did you learn in? Ah, man, I learned so much about myself. I had a couple of counselling services, went to a couple of counselling service and they tapped into my childhood and being a staunch rugby man, you know, you don’t you know, you don’t want to open up to anything you want to share any vulnerabilities. Yeah, I’m on the alpha. But then I was humbled. I was humbled by The by my wife obviously then by my past I’m heavily in faith. I’m a Christian and a very proud of that. So when my pastor for guidance, and then I went to a couple of counsellors and they just say, Well, you know, you need to really, really look deep into yourself and all I thought was this was Hocus Pocus, airy fairy stuff. But until I had that internal conversation, I was able to really it was freeing. It was freeing for me to have no expectations on anyone, and just put no onus on anyone and just say, hey, God, look Forgive me. Hey, babe, forgive me. Hey, everyone who have heard and process Forgive me. I’ve changed a new leaf and so 2018 did that December. Yeah, I was at the gym and swag and I was listening to all the Southland and swear that’s how swag was born. That was that’s where swag was born someone with a goal and I said, 2019 I’m really going to change myself. Come to January 2019 in advance So much focus so much intention to really better myself as a man as a dad as a provider, both financially, both through family being being the best person in the family wise, having fun, finance, wise, and faith. So those are my all my aspects are 2019 came in. Yeah, and just went in 100% with with swag as someone with a goal to better to be a better man. And so that was born.

 

Bryn 

It’s really interesting listening to you talk about that because I arrived at what I refer to as, as the four main games of life, health and well being relationships, business and production and connection to something bigger than myself. Exactly what you just said. And I found it through doing the podcast, found it by when I did the podcast, and it was ages before I created a website. And so I got like 6070 episodes, I think he archives process. So while I was going to But how do I put them into categories? Yeah, so started looking across them. And I was just like writing words next to them. And I got them down to about, I think, eight categories. And I thought it better than that. And I got it down, go down, put it down, put it down, and then I came across those four categories. Pretty happy with those. And then a few days later, you know, as you do sit in the car, click YouTube, and you think I wonder what’s turning up on the feed. And this is Tony Robbins, the man right? And he’s

 

 

listened to this for eight minutes.

 

Bryn 

And he starts talking about the four main areas in life and I’m going to go on Tony, come on then. And then and then he goes through them, health and well being relationships, business and connection to spirituality. And in that moment, half of me was like, key Tony Robbins I found in myself. But then the other half he was like, I’m on the right goal. Yeah, yeah, big man. Well,

 

Quintin Tufoua 

big man saying it big man say.

 

Bryn 

And what I found is that so it’s interesting to ask you about what probably led you into being a dickhead at the time

 

 

was that

 

Bryn 

isn’t your only strong as your weakest guy? I talked a lot about this on the podcast before, in, you know, you can find the and this will shape some of the questions I’ve got for you about your guess is that you can have, you know, the most successful business person who’s got a shitty marriage. Yeah,

 

 

right.

 

Bryn 

You can have a stay at home dad who’s awesome with the kids. But it’s a fat fuckery car move right now the gym buddy who is morally bereft, or you can have the super spiritual person. He can’t even afford to pay their iPhones. Oh, yeah. Right. And you’re only as strong as your weakest guy. And you can double down in one area because you need to improve it. That’s possibly their other area. And I find that life gravitating towards your weakest game, and I’m almost at the point where by by, you know, like a 10% lift in your weakest game and a 5% across the others will be exponential growth rather than just going to go and double down on this Yeah, I think is where you will probably getting too bad. Yeah, at the expense of everything else. Yeah that’s why I struggle with some business mentors or leaders who you know out on social media is a guy. Okay? You spent 120 hours in the office, fucking doing the grind doing this. And I’m like, Yeah, no, yeah. If you want to be the richest lonely person Yeah. Who can’t move their body has no connection to nature in the great things of life and has no one to share it with. Then you’re so does that. Yeah,

 

Quintin Tufoua 

yeah, it, it rings those everything you just said just rings parallel to To

 

Quintin Tufoua 

the core of me, because that’s so it’s, it’s really just,

 

Quintin Tufoua 

it also brings parallels to everyone who I’ve interviewed as well.

 

Bryn 

And I want to Yeah, ask you about. So who are the people that you interview? So people who know

 

Quintin Tufoua 

ah, so, here in Perth with john shoes, Paul Blackburn, Andy Ford, the millionaire, they’re self made millionaires self made me Yeah. So which is I can I can relate to you know Rick Hart who’s an industry leader within the and Bree Maddox, who just wrapped up with that. Yeah. But yeah, or every single one of them. This plastic surgeons who have sat down with his people who’ve made money lost it and then made it again. Yeah. So every single one of them yeah, have had stories to share. Have they had lessons and which I could relate to because it was one they all came from nothing which I could race. I’m come from that. too was they all areas in their lives with with focused on other business? Yeah, it was just business until they got to the, to the end of the career and through relaying back in and through in hindsight they say, Quintin, you’re coming up through now, don’t focus just on business. These are the areas that you need to focus on. And what

 

Bryn 

sort of areas of this

 

Quintin Tufoua 

family is a huge one that I’ve seen seen. And that’s one question I asked the interview. So how did you balance your family and your business, especially when you’re coming up, especially when you’re entrepreneur, you know, at startup stage, and they said, I stuffed it up, I stuffed it up. And if I could go back, and you’re coming up, I wish I could spend more time and I say, how do you do that? Because chunk your time. Make sure you prioritise from nine to five, strictly business, it’s all business. It’s all from five to 9am the next morning, strictly family. So turn your phone off or, you know, make sure that you put your bed when you’re present, your present. You know, with your kids because that’s, you know, money you can make your business will still be there, but it’s that time with your family. You can’t get back there. So fitness as well is huge as one making sure that you know you don’t want to be have all the millions of dollars, but you’re lying and dialysis mainly lying in bed heads, you know, high blood pressure and high cholesterol and everything requires a lot of money. But what’s the

 

 

point of triples? No.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Exactly, you know. And in high end and fate has been another one. You know, make sure that you spiritually connected that everything that you know, you take time to meditate, and you take time to really just have time to yourself to really be an essence with with who you truly are. Don’t know. Yeah. And so this fate, this family is finance and this fulfilment, fulfilment for you whether through charity will through giving back to the community, whether through going, taking a day out of your life to be part of a community service, giving back You don’t have to have the money and to give back and have to wait for someone’s permission to say, hey, look, there’s a charity. There’s the Red Cross, volunteer your time. Give back. And so, every single you find that every single entrepreneur, successful multimillionaire, has those five facets Yeah, in their life that they’ve really wanted to hone down on and really take ownership on. But yeah, just to repeat them, so its family. Its finance, its fitness, its faith and its fulfilment. And those are the five key areas. And so for me, when I started this podcast, it was money. You know, when you think of millionaires, I had a goal. The goal is what the goal is fulfilment, like, initially at the start, I discovered q yet what was the goal? The goal

 

 

I want to make 5,000,050

 

Quintin Tufoua 

million 50,000,050 million in 10 years time tidy. 10. So yet last year, 2019 was one that was got nine years left. And so that’s still the goal. That’s not even the goal, but it’s it’s at the back of my mind, but I’m no longer focused on that. So it’s now gone from Okay and how that started was okay when on social media made a post Hey guys my name is Quintin defy if you don’t know me you want to know me now when I put a goaling up there a goal of $50 million in 10 years time, bam, camera off. After that posted I’m like shit How the hell am I gonna do it? So then that’s when I went out Google searched millionaires ritualist here in Perth, a whole list came down and just got on the phone and just one by one reached out to them and even went to the office knocked on their door, say hey look, I want to introduce myself my name is Quintin. I’m an entrepreneur here in Perth. I don’t have anything to give but really I just want to learn from you. I’m just want to be a student of business. And just really, if I can share if I can do anything in return, that would be awesome. And so the first person who’s reached out who said yes was john Hughes, very successful car dealership owner here in Perth. And he just goes Quintin. You know what you remind me of me 40 years ago when I was door knocking and I was getting rejected. You know what, come down. Bring Your crew, and let’s make this happen. And so from there on in a manner to leverage of him, and I asked those key questions of ask them money and from there on money has never been their main focus. It’s always been helping other people, you know, the traditional cliche, but when I thought of millionaire like, when you think of millionaire, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Right?

 

Bryn 

What’s interesting? Probably for me now it’s somebody who is focused.

 

 

Yes,

 

 

yes. Focus.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah, perfect, because you ask everyone else. millionaire. I’ve asked students and I’ve asked business owners, okay, when I say millionaire when it comes to money, money, money, money, but when you ask an actual millionaire, what money means to them? It is totally different. So you’re everyone’s definition of success, as means different things. So for businesswoman, Brin very successful business, which is also a man. I said money, asked What does money mean to you guys? It’s not It’s not the what she say it’s it’s not the benchmark. You know, once you get it it’s not it’s not everything like you get enough to pay your bills, everything else after that it’s it’s worthless. But and then for success which is one quiz we have we are play this game at the end, what is success success, people say success is happiness. So other people have said success to them is fulfilment. So you get you get different answers from different from, you know, the top of the field, who say you give their own interpretation of what success means to them. If you would ask me, you know, what does money mean back in the day, I mean, love seems like life, everything, you know, everything in there, but you asked me now money is just a tool. It’s just the tool that you use. To get to where you want to get to that’s a it’s a, it’s not so much reward, but it’s a consequence of the actions that you put out there.

 

Bryn 

Yes, yes, it was like, I spent a bit of time in the last year investigating my own relationship with money. Which is, which is a fascinating thing to do. And I would recommend anybody to seriously deep dive on it journaling out Think about it. Where did you get this from? You know, you’ll have heard it from your mother. Yeah. You know, time function.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah, yeah. Money is

 

Bryn 

Yeah. And, and, you know, so it seems like a very scarce

 

Quintin Tufoua 

resource. Yes. scarcity mindset, like,

 

Bryn 

yeah, life itself. And, to me, it’s almost got to a point of something about an energetic transfer. There’s something in there now related to it’s not just money for money’s sake. For me it’s money is a resource that opens up opportunities. And there are opportunities that I would like yeah, you know, It’s a slightly larger house, different holidays, stuff like that. But once you write down what are the things that you actually want to do and one of the things my business mentor Carla says to do at the start of our journey with him was to self in five years time and write down what does life look like? What do you want to be doing? And you know, it’s quite it looks quite normal. It’s not, you know, it’s not it’s, I get in again, the helicopter off the yo and I go from here to there. Nice. No, it’s nice car, take kids go. Could holidays pretty good food, opportunity to have friends around and cook good food for them and, you know, do meaningful things and go on, you know, development stuff for me and learning stuff for me and do the work or want to do some work still as part of that, you know, and and then he got his tour. It just cost it up.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah. And then he cost it up.

 

Bryn 

hundred millions now why the hell do I need? Yeah, it’s actually a whole lot less than that. Yeah, I also you know it’s interesting but the other interesting thing apart and it’s fascinating talking to you about millionaire is that we put so much conditionality on ourselves if I had this then if that if that if then or should you know and we if and when on ourselves if I had a million bucks Don’t be happy yeah fuck it be happy now

 

 

yeah that’s and guess what the fucking million books will probably fly

 

Quintin Tufoua 

that’s that’s that’s what I’m learning at the moment like it’s just to live and act like you are already yeah you know not in an arrogant way but just in a fulfilment way no don’t go around chasing things and and it’s a sense of unhappiness and I think a lot of People out there just fine unhappiness through the bigger picture through I’m not getting as close but if you live inch by inch, day by day and just in case

 

Quintin Tufoua 

like I get a lot of pride

 

Quintin Tufoua 

when going to my kids assembly, and she gets certificate, you know, a certificate for something, you know, faith pillar that they present for, you know, for being a student of the week, I get more satisfaction and more fulfilment out of that then if I was to say to win like a 10 grand deal for a client or something like that, or to make 10 grand on that there’s a pride in something of seeing others succeed. You know, that’s that’s your blood, you know, that is of your work so I don’t want to say money is bad and there’s bad connotation with money and people’s money is not bad at all. You know, if I didn’t think this is this is like this taboo thing. Oh, you’re just chasing the millions of dollars. I’m like, like, dude, that’s that’s my goal. And this is what this is. A lot of people were saying q 50 million. As a Look, no Don’t Don’t worry about me, man. I’m getting it done. I’m making it happen. I’m putting it out there to the universe. I’m putting it out there to God. Now I’m making taking the steps. But tell me this, what are your goals? crickets, you know, they’ve so fast to critique you. Yeah, you switch the big thing back on to them. And they don’t have nothing to say because they’ve got no ambition. So

 

Bryn 

you’re gonna see the standard. It’s easy to stand on the other side of the white line. And tell you how should you tackle?

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah, like you leg dropping? Yeah, you dropped the ball. Yeah.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Right. Yeah. I’m here. Yeah.

 

Bryn 

Yeah. And it’s something else that when you have to sit again at the start of the business rental car call with Carl is we had to sit down and say what our number was, you know, we wasn’t just out of Yeah. You know, smart was 2525. Yeah.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

We’ve got five minutes. Oh, nice. Coffee. Yeah.

 

Bryn 

I just turned 45. So I was like, I’d be tired about 50 and you put it out and start with your life. Then after all, it’s like, no fucking Yeah. And how, how we work its way out.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yes. I think I think a lot of people stuck on the Hell yeah. You know, they they bounced around from

 

Bryn 

jobs. That is like, this is where we’re gonna go. Yeah, how we’re gonna do it? Yeah, the dots will sort themselves. Yeah. Yeah, they will link they, they will connect in ways. Yeah. You know, I think that’s where being a person of faith

 

Quintin Tufoua 

yes has an enormous role. I can tell you man, I can tell you Bryn if there’s one thing that I’ve learned so much is his fate. We went to church growing up 100% we just for me, I’ve rocked up the church because I was told Yeah, but now for me I’ve rocked up the church because I want to go. I want to

 

 

generally switch from being a thing you had to do to you want to do It

 

Quintin Tufoua 

was all part of that journey like, December 28 2008. Just like I’ve tried it on my own. I tried it by myself, and my mom, whenever I get off the phone with mom, she would always say, Hey, are you praying? I’m like, Hey, Mom, I am I wasn’t metal. So I started praying. And from then on, made the switch and from then on, as soon as I just let go and just say, hey, it’s gonna fall into place, put it out there and see what happens. That’s the whole relief of knowing that hey, it’s, it’s out there. So all you have to do is just be consistent in your action. So hundred percent stand by faith. But, you know, it’s it, you know, I struggle with most times, you know, look at the end of the day, this comes back to the core. And you know, you need to remind yourself you’re not you’re not alone in this journey. You know, what other people who are brothers in faith, who I can fall back on and there’s the big man upstairs, he’s got my back as well. So you know, whatever your, you know, your spiritual connection is you You know, the universe or whatever for me, happens to be God and 100% that back that. Yeah, I know. I’m good. I know. I’m good. Yeah, it’s faith for sure. Faith has actually allowed me to start with imperfect action. You know, I started first podcast with a GoPro and my phone. Yeah. And then from there on the, you know, I got to the point where I reached out, you know, faith allowed me to door knock on Paul Blackburn is you know, $536 million net worth, and just say, hey, Paul, send the email out and he replied, back the next day, I’m like, holy crap, man. Sorry, guys queue When can we sit down? So putting it out there and just taking imperfect action and having so much faith and going and saying, hey, look, the intention is good, you’re coming from a good place, that you’re not happy to scam anyone. You’re not out there to rip anyone off. You’re coming from a place of genuine transparency that I want to learn. I’m a student. I’m just want to just Just one I just want to learn and go pick that up. And when they feel that, and that’s why I like meeting people face to face. Like that’s why I like shaking hands with I don’t like the messaging on Instagram, like DM me, I don’t like all that stuff. I like to physically go, you know, shake hands, they feel my energy, I feel their energy. And this is 100% connection. They’re like, there’s like cumin or Bob man, I aligned with you, man. So what what are you working on right now that I can help you with? Or maybe I can connect you with someone? And then you generally build that connection? Because that connection is is it been a long, long, long, long term relationship with that person? But I just can’t say

 

Bryn 

two things in there that are things I want to speak to out but you know, you say you’re in in their space in their energy. What have you noticed, you know, you’ve sat with a number of these guys. Yeah. And girls, and how would you define Energy. spice.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Yeah. Good question.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

It the energy there’s been different different transitions from different industries. So you go from john who is his energy was? How could I say john has energy? I thought his energy was that of like, almost like a like a granddad talking down to his son. Yeah, you know, so there was like, like, share with me the regrets because son, this is what you know you coming up now like handing over the baton don’t do what I did, you know learn from this

 

Bryn 

from other things

 

Quintin Tufoua 

yeah, yeah so I was I was taking so that was my first one. So that was the energy that I felt from him that was really just a tutor, like a teacher kind of his his my life. Is there something that I’ve regretted, don’t repeat the same mistakes. And so from there on, I went to you know, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark and carry his energy was like to live life and I’ve travelled, you know, I’ve been very blessed with my life and I’ve had to go back and forth work has allowed me to do that. Okay, I love that I haven’t travelled I love to travel with someone is so you’re getting different vibes from from people who were they currently at then Bryn she’s just family she’s all about fun that Bryn Bree very very medics you’ll bring so Bri medics is all about fun. She’s her energy is so vibrant. It just flows from her personality. And that’s that’s people that you want to be around. And then there’s one guy when we because we we did a survey we went around and in we were we were in Besant, no Bayswater. We went around and we’re asking business owners Hey, look, if you are a millionaire, what’s the one question you would ask a millionaire? And the person that we sat down with he was in the pub by himself? Because Well, I’m actually a millionaire. So awesome. What would you like to share? Why don’t you share anything? Okay? He’s got, you know, why is that because everything I’ve learned was from me. Okay, so do you have family or anyone who does not have any fear? I said, Do you want to share anything with other entrepreneurs who are coming up? Nope. And so I was like, okay, obviously, we’re close along very, very. So you you do get those ones who are successful and who are just very, I wouldn’t say I would say arrogant but very just don’t want to share anything in here. Yeah, very. So I found that I found that out some people who are very successful when we left there. So we saw him we noticed by himself and reading the papers in the middle of the day, no family, no happiness in his life. And that was one takeaway that I took away from that day was okay. I don’t want to be like that guy. Very successful button. Very hollow very empty within himself. So that energy I don’t want to be around that, like there is always two.

 

Bryn 

There are two ways of doing it. Yeah, there are many ways

 

Quintin Tufoua 

there are many ways of doing it. Right How do you want to do it? And and for me it’s just doing it the right way finding something non passionate about and you know, it started from swag was okay let’s it’s all money let’s let’s make money but swag the essence of swag is goals, you know is stepping into the unknown as someone with a goal. So if you’re listening and it could, it could be someone out there right now who’s in their job, or they’re just scared to take that, take that link. Go, you know who’s driving right now and they drive him to the job or whoever’s going through, you know, he’s got some passion. So swag for me, it was like, I’m taking them somewhere the goal, I’m gonna step into that I’m gonna just go with blind faith. And I’m going to take action on that. So now there’s someone with a goal of yours swag. You Well, we need to get to know each other because there’s a whole community out there go getters and and do you want to make, you know, all these areas of their life better than what it was previously so

 

Bryn 

in some of the people that you’ve spoken to what have been some of the fears or hurdles that they have gone over yet, and how they

 

Quintin Tufoua 

trying to narrow down this this shit?

 

 

Yeah, I’m just trying to think I think

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Andy, Andy Ford, I’m gonna I’m gonna pick on Andy. So Andy, he’s the co founder, one of the founders of Ford and doing an air conditioning to Jacob comm conditioning company here. This hearing from history and some of the essence like it was during the early stages of his career. I started 19 business so your 19 year old and you’re going out to meeting clients who 30 4050 year old Yeah, looking down at these 19 year old thinking Who the hell are you guys so he got rejected. Did upon that to the point where at 19 he started growing facial hair right to actually look mature but oh yeah look a little bit older through that laughter he when he told me he was cute we got rejected I had to get my dad who’s a pharmacist leave like help flavours full time job to help with me I’m we’re going we have to sell our cars to sell to start our business so you when you’re when you’re starting from nothing as the best place to start because you’ve got nothing to lose you go all in and so from then you know he’s just said look, we that’s rejections are part of the process, you know, failure is all part of the process. how they dealt with it was purely through mindset was purely through having mentors was built purely through having going into partnership with someone who was you know, who provided another asset to their business whether through skills with a through a numbers person, or whether through a person who had an exuberant personality Without going he was a salesman. So they connected themselves and they align themselves with people who are better than with themselves, what better than them? And also, they they really just learned from the school of hard knocks, which was, you know, pivoting when it What didn’t go right. And, and just keeping consistent and keeping disciplined with what went well. So, you know, you could go to, you know, Paul Blackburn who travelled the world and through that experience, he got to go through Asia and see the lesson unfortunate, which humbled him, you know, which he thought, okay, when i and this is what he said, when I make money when I come back to Perth and I make money. My commitment is I’m going to give money back to the country setup. So, you know, failures, and I think it just takes the opportunity for someone to really be present with what really be grateful gratitude is the essence of what you know, people there are a lot of people that are out there, who have less than what you have Who are getting it done still? So it just comes down to, for them. The mindset. One thing I think you hear all the time that separates those who are successful and those who are unsuccessful is they just have faith one. And they step with faith on faith and the ability for them as their mindset. their mindset really is just okay, well, if it fails, or good, if it fails, it’s a lesson if it wins, if it’s if we progress from here, oh, well, then that’s a win. But at the end of the day, you know, you don’t, you don’t you don’t get on to the rugby field, by just you know, training all day in and working up and then you got to actually say, Coach put me in, I’m ready. I’m ready. I’m willing to go Let me put one tackle. And once you get that one ticket with all the adrenaline, yeah, now, it’s game on now. You know? Yeah. So I love the connotation with sport because, you know, coming from sport, businesses, sport Yeah, it’s a sport of endurance, you got to train, you got to discipline. You know, you train for game day game day is like a sales, whatever you’re, you’re in a game day could be a podcast interview. And so whatever. So in the background, you’re staying up all night doing the research, and that’s training for the game day. So,

 

Bryn 

so one of the things I find interesting about what you’re doing is, and you kind of mentioned it earlier on is, you know, choosing who you

 

 

choose to mix with. Yeah.

 

Bryn 

There’s a guy Dan Pena, who says that you’re the average of the five. Yeah, you’re the average of the five people that you hang out with. You know, so he says, if those if you look around those five people are Yeah, you know, laughing at fart jokes and going nowhere to guess where you’re going. Yeah. So how have you found that hanging with these guys, even if it’s during the course of a podcast, but how? How is that rubbing For you,

 

Quintin Tufoua 

yeah, sure, a lot of things. So I’ve broken down my life into 35 facets. So finance really tightened up on my money management really paid off, focus down on paying debt, credit card debt. So I’ve narrowed down on that. Tim guest who we sat down, I had looked at some of his stuff, he’s all about real estate properties, I’m looking into real estate, as a way of just passive income, you know, you find that people the successful have managed to, you know, really just to narrow down on key areas where they’re weak at, and then just go all in on that one area. So Tim did that. He had a mentor that coached him through it. So finance family, I turn off my phone at five in the afternoon, and dedicate myself to my family, ring my girls every night and make sure that they’re all good to checking in with family fitness. I go to the gym, making sure that I’m strengthening my body, faith Ah, you know, praying a lot of praying and going to church when I can. And really just having that memory of separate reflection, meditation, fulfilment, fulfilment, for me is doing something extremely out of my comfort zone, which is the podcast, which is reaching out to people and that’s fulfilment. For me, I get so much of a kick when I reach out to you know, a successful person that say, hey, look, I love I’ve actually done some research in your love your journey. Can you love to sit down with you? And have you share your journey with my audience? And really just tell us how you how you went nuts not so much how you went through success? Obviously, you have, but just the processes and the trials and the tribulations and the self doubt and the limiting beliefs and all that stuff. And we went through how did you cope through that because I’d love to know this entrepreneurs such as myself, other entrepreneurs who are going through that right now. Yeah, and they go Yeah, this is what I did bla bla bla and, and so yeah, and then I just share that with those who are willing to take it in but at the end of The day it’s, it’s, it’s fulfilling for me. So all those five areas are my goals. Excellent. And that’s gives me a sense of purpose gives me you know, a sense of just just almost just sets my compass in the right direction. Oh,

 

 

yeah. And

 

Bryn 

we first met at Perth podcasting, right? Yeah, so you’re gonna laugh when I ask you the next question. What’s, how long does the swipe podcast run for? Does it have an end goal?

 

Quintin Tufoua 

We actually just chatted with this with my producer, Brian, and we’re just saying, Hey, man, what’s the direction of this? Like, where are we with? It’s like they did and we were like thinking zero. It’s got to be a business running behind it. Because at the end of the day, it’s, it’s, it’s great that we’ve done the, the, the, you gotta have a business plan behind it. Yeah. So we’ve been, you know, going through memberships and we Going through, you know, running through ideas of how to monetize, you know, and that’s, that’s what we’re going through at the moment how to monetize it, monetizing it through membership, we’ve got an event that we were working on putting together with confirmed or seven of the millionaires that I’ve interviewed. And I went to them ask them hey guys, look, thank you so much. We want to actually put you or seven of you guys together in one room on one night and really just you know, get you face to face with entrepreneurs who are coming up who want to be exactly like you who want to come and have success and they said yeah, every single with all seven have confirmed their attendance. And so I went with this concept to current University went with this concept to Murdoch University and ECU pitched it out to them and they say q we want in whatever you got going on with these guys, we went in and so we’ve got funding to give towards to help too. So so that you know, it’s all just in faith like, again in faith. imperfect action rounding them all up it was imperfect action. It’s just like what

 

Bryn 

I’ve done is better than perfect. Yeah.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

Ryan, because you could just sit there and I didn’t want to be just another podcast that went from millionaire to millionaire to millionaire. And he said, Okay, next, I wanted to wrap it all up. Yeah, and one of the series one and bring them all back together and say, guys, I’ve learned so much from you guys. Can you do replicate what you’ve done for me to you know, if we filled the room with 500 entrepreneurs, business owners, he would be you know, you’d leave a legacy not just for you, but for everyone else who was coming up and we could pay homage and pay acknowledge you guys. So that was my pitch. It wasn’t even the pitch. It was just Hey guys, this is you’ve got some something well for me, yeah, let’s do it for everyone. And so yeah, so from there on. Swag is ponies hosting together in August, an event for the seven? Yeah, the seven guys and girls have come together and have really continued To make in my life really on the on the rise to success

 

Bryn 

because that kind of leads me to my next question, which is, well, let’s start with the original question because I remember when we when we spoke at Perth, podcasting, we yeah and and i think initially you asked me about engagement and stuff like that is

 

 

key QE because

 

Quintin Tufoua 

that is that is that is so mad and that’s why I’ll always remember you know always thank you for that because that that period I was so caught up in like the views and the end and the listeners and I came into their thinking, okay these guys obviously you know yourself and Locke have made so yes, you know, tidal waves in progression. And I remember I asked you I said the brain I’m fucked because I’m so focused on the views and then you said something that was paramount to me and I’ll never forget and he says q like is your go to two To actually, you know, have a million viewers and listeners or is it to make a million dollars annually in order to make money? So focus on that. Focus on on getting that.

 

Bryn 

Yeah. And those that want to try

 

Quintin Tufoua 

again well and cat that was it. Yeah that was it focused on changing, you know, on your goal intentionally and don’t focus on the analytics of everything. And now look at man that was so powerful because for me that was all I focused on. And so when I shifted when I’ve reframed when I shifted my focus from that man, it was just it just got it was just so relieving. Yeah, it relieved me from so much pressure and so much expectation.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, because look, you know, I do podcast to share that but primarily I do it. I have to do it for me first Ah, do it if you do for the listener purely for First on the list and then you know different Yeah. Yeah. Older idea or agreed mainstream media agree. Let’s not say, you know, I’m completely

 

 

distancing yourself I feel

 

Bryn 

Yeah. But at the same time, I have to go on my journey and here’s the thing and if you resonate with the things that, that me, then you’re gonna love it though, you can die. And that’s cool too. Right?

 

 

And, you know,

 

Bryn 

for you you’ve now and you’ve now created the podcast and I refer to my podcast is this like, amazing vehicle, which it which just accelerates my expansion. And also at the same time, it’s a key that unlocks the door, which is previously closed. Now to me unlocks the door so I can explore in journey and humanity and consciousness, you know, across lots of different areas. You know, for me, it’s for games. And for you, it’s a lot the door to go in towards a millionaire and rub shoulders and be in that air and be in That energy. And it’s just from taking action. Yeah, that’s just been taken out. So I guess three round now is you can’t just be the guy that interviews. Yes, maybe that Yeah, remember podcast Anyway, it was like, you’re gonna have to get to an endpoint. You know, is it is it like, I’m going to interview 49 millionaires, you know, and and then I’m stopping. Yeah. And so what are the emerging? We talked about the lessons that you’ve learned what is the emerging ideas and thoughts of how you’re gonna

 

Quintin Tufoua 

get it done? Yes, so yet

 

Quintin Tufoua 

to be 100% transparent, we’re working on that. So it’s been good. It’s been a year now where we’ve been pivoting on certain ideas. So like, sitting down the millionaires has been awesome and has been branding for us we using using the podcast as a brand as a way to Brand ourselves, and then in the background, but I have a business that’s running in the background. That business maybe could be. We’re thinking of, you know, being a digital media company for the millionaires, you know, trying to just just being just just specifically catered to them. Not everyone else, not small businesses, not, you know, efficient chip shops or anyone. It’s specifically catered to them millionaires only. So we would interview them. And then we would pitch them and say, hey, look, we want to do look after your, let us show you what we’ve done with someone else here as a template. And we were brought in so much so customers for them through branding them and through bringing them we’d love to do the same for you. And so one, we’ve already established a relationship with them to it gives us a source to monetize it, and then really just establish our our brand as well. So the end point for us, like That is really good. We’ve been pivoting from, what should we do in terms of and for every business idea out there. You know, there’s so many people, so many gurus out there, you know, you know, what’s your business model, and every single person would ask even the millionaires FAQ. So what’s it? What’s the, what’s the end result here? Yeah, I love what you’re doing, but was going where’s it going? And I’m like, great question. I want to know where it’s going. Yeah, so from them. Yeah. It’s coming. I’m, I’m gonna show you it’s coming. Yeah. But, um, and when it hits, it’s gonna be so great. But at this stage, asked me this question again, Brendon, in about six months time, I’ll probably be you know, more solid in my buffer now. With focusing on just just sharing through the podcast, what we’ve learned and then implementing it, implementing it through a business plan that where we’re figuring out, figuring out I think

 

Bryn 

Hello, we can end up putting so much expectation on ourselves to who we are the influence of social media through the influence of so much other stuff that there has to be that space for allowance to let the seed somewhere you’re letting seeds fall down by doing the podcast in and of itself. But just let it just fall and then see which one cracks and which ones Jeremy which one goes. Similarly, I did who have been doing it for coming up to two and a half, nearly three years. first couple years. I was like, how are you gonna monetize it?

 

 

Yes.

 

Bryn 

I had ideas. Come and Go come and go and like some of my old ideas come back to me recently.

 

 

could actually work now.

 

Bryn 

But like I said, I didn’t even have a website

 

 

though.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, Episode 7080. So what’s that? year and a half and there’s just been no rush and urgency. I had a little part time job in the background. Yes. allows me to space to do this and put bread on the table at the same time. But yeah, and then out of that, you know, germinate? Yes. Yeah. Which I’m now running with. And that idea was nowhere to be found. Yeah. Yeah. I think sometimes it’s just go and do the pursuit and something well,

 

Quintin Tufoua 

yeah, it’s all you will click, you know, it’s gonna come around. And we’re very fortunate to sit down and we are getting one on one mentorship from these millionaires, you know, that it’s been, it’s been 100% great. I loved every step of them. But you know, for me, it just gets to a point where I KQ Come on man let’s let’s not down and see where where we can make take this happen, you know, you’ve you’ve got you go in the background that’s that go. So okay, let’s reverse engineer what we need to do, do we need to have a membership site? Or do we need to do start consulting or you know what what avenues that we have where we can leverage off the knowledge that we’ve got, you know, because it’s all good now what’s stopping Joe Blow from going and interviewing doing the same thing? So the journey, swag is is is the journey is all about, you know, from someone who took action to put a goal out there, and let’s see where it goes, you know, and I want to get this goal at the end. But the goal is no longer. You know, it’s no longer the focus, but I want to see, there has to be a way where I can monetize this. And so that it’s a win for everyone. And I can go to the business owners and say, hey, look, we’ve got knowledge and action. Apply to my business that’s working. I want to share with you You know, it’s it’s what’s your favourite? This is my favourite okay cue. I’ve seen your work. Let’s do it. Yeah, now that’s fulfilling. You know, once you get that first then you can then duplicate replicate that to, to other successful businesses, you’re getting fulfilment. They’re getting fulfilment. And then you’re still doing the podcast as a way to brand yourself and say, hey, look, I’m sitting down with Richard Branson, maybe. Hello, Richard, if you’re listening, but you know, so yeah, yeah. So there’s the blooper.

 

Bryn 

Yeah, I suppose Yeah. It’s also leaving the door open to the fact that it might not be the podcast. That is the thing that generates the money direct. I always thought the Wi Fi was the shop front for business. I didn’t know what was inside. And that’s the worst constructed sentence. But

 

Quintin Tufoua 

the fact that you took action, there’s so many out there who so about it.

 

Bryn 

The other question I’ve got is How? Well have your friends and family noticed about you since you’ve started doing this like kids?

 

 

Ah, man, that’s

 

Quintin Tufoua 

I don’t know, I think it’s probably best ask them right? Because I know that in myself I’ve changed I know that I’ve changed I just in the confidence that I have in myself like I had so had so much no confidence in myself earlier and then confidence in myself and then I’ve passed it on to my kids. So my kids have self affirmations now that we say before school, and I dropped them off, and that is basis, which is I’ve got three girls, and that’s I’m beautiful. I’m strong and I’m smart. We say that they screaming out in the car, drop them off. And we have the five pillars of success, which is when they get to school. They have to help someone. help someone. Be kind. Try your best. Yeah, focus The last one is have fun. Those are the five pillars of success in their life. So I’ve instilled in them from a very young age that my eldest is nine, youngest is four and the middle is Mariah is five. So every single one on so passing that on that, that I’m breaking old habits of, you know, of, you know, I wasn’t taught all this stuff, but it’s helped me so I’m passing it on to my, my kids, my sister who lives in Perth as well. And she, she’s number one, so actually my mom or my sisters, my number one supporters, whenever I post something, they’re liking it, they’re commenting and sharing it, they’re loving it and they go wow, you know, I’m so proud of, you know, q I’ve read it in the messages and say, Look, it’s about time we see someone within the you know, Pacific Island community, who’s you know, is really taking a stand who’s doing something different, who’s not just, you know, not just playing rugby, you know, not just in the UFC or you know, where we’re in contact physical sports. It’s actually doing something that’s challenging. You know, that’s and I love challenges. And so yeah, I’d say, for me, it’s just happiness now I’m a lot more happier person to be me.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

So, yeah, you’d have to ask them

 

Bryn 

what have you learned about yourself through all of this?

 

Quintin Tufoua 

I’ve learnt a religious to forgive myself I forgive myself is number one key

 

Quintin Tufoua 

of everything, you know, the great millionaires are great going through, you know, sitting down with, you know, successful people. That’s great. Yeah. The ability for you to forgive yourself has been for me, has been so as has really just given me permission to, to accept that, hey, I’m not perfect. Hey, I’ve done wrong. And so go out and to first and foremost, ask for forgiveness from yourself and then go and ask With forgiveness from those who have hurt, you know, yeah and and from that, that has been key have learnt internal strength and fortitude, which is really just to build which build my character, rejection and getting you know, and that’s it’s all part of the process of entrepreneurship. But for me about saying, and my faith in God has really improved. And just, I’ve really just learned that I can do more, really, I can I can do more I, for me, this is really just the tip of an iceberg. But having reached out to, you know, successful people, I was at a Perth event last night with Perth angels, angel investors and they were the entrepreneurs pitching up to these angel investors and I happen to rub shoulders with them, you know, and I was just thinking, you know, these angels, you know, you put them on pedestals and you put millionaires on pedestals. They just like everyone else. Yeah, they just like normal people who crap who are scared you have you know, and and and once I walked in I just Hey man, I’m My name is Quintin Higgins. I’m an angel investor. Wow, that’s great man. But you know, tell me what your story and they say look, I came from nothing I was like, Okay cool, so we need them put anyone on a pedestal. Yep. You can relate to them you relax. And that is and you feel like, Man, this guy is just a normal human being. Right? his bloody ate breakfast this morning. drove to work here. He’s just normal. I mean, as soon as you go mad these guys totally go. Why negative? Exactly. Right. Exactly. Right. So when you go in with the mindset that these are exactly normal people. Everything’s relaxed, you enjoy the interview. It’s flows, everything is flowing because you’re not now expectations are Gosh, what do I say? How do I say that? It’s like, like, how did you deal with your kids like bring How did you do With your kids when they, you know, we just had a party on my stream is everywhere. I’m a perfectionist that’s like how do you do that? Because like I’m struggling with being perfectionist, as I said, we it’s more like a, you know, casual conversation. So um, yeah, I everyone I know that I’m perfectly capable more, so much more in me that just want to just want to share, you know,

 

Bryn 

how’d you keep yourself grounded? Thinking about Jamaican chocolate. Oh, yeah.

 

Quintin Tufoua 

making chocolate the way to my heart is Jamaican rum, chocolate. Yeah. I love Jamaican rum. But yeah, that’s probably my kids. My kids. You know, you could sit with anyone in the world. If they go, dad. I just want to share with you my joy. Can we come joy together? Cool. Then just brings me right down. Yeah. Yeah, they’re just like, Dad, can you like just like, help me with my homework? I’m like, Do you know who I am? I’m black swag, man. Do you? Like know that just just be dead? Okay, okay, let’s be dead. So you come down and you leave everything else out. So my kids definitely keep me grounded. My mom keeps me grounded as well. Just to remember remember we come from always remember we come from we came from nothing. And just because he is sitting down with these guys doesn’t mean doesn’t change anything you’re still assigned to me is still a sisters. Yeah. You know and you’re still a brother. So, yeah, so yeah, remember God and you know keep everything, you know keep Be humble and so every single thing I’m making sure that hey, I’m aligning myself. I’m not being to show off he or not, you know, I’m making sure that you know, I like nice things. I like Lamborghinis. I set an Aston Martin was like, Wow, that’s really nice. I love this.
