About Sarah Cordiner - Professional BIO

“You have unique talents, knowledge, skills and competencies just waiting to be unlocked.
It doesn’t matter what your starting point is, or how little you have – with a little bit of resourcefulness, the gift of self-efficacy and some good education, everything you dream of is possible”
Sarah Cordiner


Sarah’s (very brief) story!
I am a ‘rags to riches’, ‘anything is possible’ and the ‘just get off your behind and make it happen’ entrepreneur.
In 2012, I washed up on the shores of Western Australia; no money, friends, phone, laptop or bed to sleep in.  Eighteen months later, I’m recognised as a leader in my industry. I have 23 people working for me and had turned down a $3 million offer for my business.
Hailing from a gypsy background where female entrepreneurship and education was frowned upon; my dreams had been crushed and ridiculed.  I started an education business anyway where my competition was the Federal Government and two multi-billion dollar global enterprises.  
At 19 I had zero business training, $17 in my bank, loved ones telling I was stupid. But my passion could move planets.  So I did it anyway - I succeeded.
My education business has been in operation for over a decade. Teaching thousands (including prisoners, long term unemployed, schools, colleges, universities, defence forces, remote communities, governments, corporate professionals, international franchises and entrepreneurs) in 84 countries. My diary is filled with international public speaking gigs and I’ve built an asset worth millions.
I’ve gone from desperately handing out my email address on scraps of stolen paper in 2012 to having over 40,000 followers on my email database and social media combined.
Those ‘normal’ people who’ve achieved their goals through hard work and passion inspire me.  Having now done the same, I want to make sure no dream goes unrealised. My goal is to show 10,000+ aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals by 2020, that no matter your circumstances, who you are or where your starting point is, you CAN make anything happen if you try hard enough and put the right strategies into play.
