MY STORY

AGED 18 I WALKED OUT OF A DOCTOR’S CLINIC AND MY WORLD WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME

I’m Paul Higgins – a business mentor who specializes in helping Cloud Businesses to scale their business to live a life with NO LIMITS! 

When I was 18 and I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). 

I vividly remember the look on my Mum’s face as the doctor broke the news to us. 

Her tensed eyebrows furrowed further as a hurricane of emotions settled on her face. 

I instantly sensed her devastation and guilt. After all, she knew more than I did about what I was about to go through, as she had seen her father pass away when she was just 13.

As the doctor explained my condition to me, I finally started to understand the magnitude of the situation. However, once the initial shock wore off, I felt a sense of clarity that I had never felt before. I guess it is true what they say; when you hit your lowest point, you are open to the greatest changes. 

While inheriting PKD was out of my hands, I realized that the way I deal with the condition is well within my control. I decided, at that instant, I would live life with NO LIMITS! 

I started my career in corporate working for Coca-Cola and over 18 years, I led large sales teams, transformed billion-dollar business units and led global partnerships eg. Coca-Cola and JimBeam.

The demands of Corporate Directorship forced my hand to look after my health in 2011.

For 10+ years I have been on the entrepreneurial journey, taking the importance of the brand owner and partners working together at the heart of what I do.

The ‘Coke’ way is exactly what tech companies and Cloud partners are doing today.

I created a tech consultancy with Scott and we became a Cloud partner for Copper CRM.

As I was facing kidney failure in 2017, so too was our business model.

We realized not all leads are equal from our partner and we needed to create our own.

 

Tapping into my Coke experience, I was able to create:

✅ New Revenue streams

✅ A niche market

✅ Predictable sales system (whilst on dialysis)

✅ Strategic referral Partnerships

✅ Support team

In February 2019 I gained a new kidney from my best mate Brendan. 

Something I can never repay him enough for. 

Mum passed in July 2019 knowing my future was bright thanks to Brendan. 

We sold our tech consulting business to a Google partner for 1.5 multiple.

I now live my life with NO LIMITS! And I would love to help you do the same.

Now your turn. I would love to hear your story.
