What’s the one thing that the world’s most successful entrepreneurs have in common? They are all willing to follow their ‘gut instinct’ when it comes to business – even if that means going against the grain. They didn’t get to where they are today by using traditional approaches to business…or stock-standard ideas.
That has definitely been the case for Jack Delosa who decided that university wasn’t ‘his thing’ and that, rather than save money to buy a house – he wanted to invest money in a business idea.
Against advice of family and friends he borrowed $20,000 to start a call centre company which made no money for three years but he kept backing himself and sure enough, he’s now one of Australia’s most successful young businessmen with two multi-million dollar companies to his name and an empire that’s growing each day.
Jack has spoken for and been engaged as a thought-leader for brands such as Microsoft, AMEX, Virgin and CPA on the topic of business growth and performance.
Today he is a spokesperson for entrepreneurship in Australia as a regular blogger for Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Start Up Smart, Dynamic Business Magazine and AMEX. He has also been featured in BRW, GQ, Career One, Fitness First Magazine, Channel 7, Channel 9, Channel 10 News, Sunrise, The Morning Show, Sky Business and was on the cover of Central Magazine.
Jack Delosa’s Entourage
In 2013 Jack founded The Entourage Foundation which is igniting a generation of enterprising young people to drive Australia forward by delivering business education through high-schools nationally.
In recognition of his successes, Jack has been listed as one of the top 10 entrepreneurs under 30 in Australia in the Dynamic Business Young Guns and in SmartCompany’s Hot 30Under30. He has also been listed four times in Australian Anthill’s 30Under30 Publication.
