Seek clarity and purpose through the power of meditation | Troy Haines | Ep #3

By Georgie Hubbard

Welcome to today’s episode of The Mind To Lead Podcast. Today I sat down with Troy Haines. Troy is the founder and CEO of theSPACE an incubator in North QLD, Cairns. Not knowing what he wanted to do out of school, he did a marketing degree and diploma in business, after which, he ultimately fell into owning a travel business. But it wasn’t what he was passionate about. Through having a meditation practice it helped him to discover who he was, but by that time he was stuck in the business. Although Troy had success with the online travel business, he is now a part of Transformative Technologies throughout Australia, supporting people and entrepreneurs create technology around mental health wellbeing and human thriving. Having moved away from the travel business and into Transformative Technologies, he now feels he’s living his purpose. The suffering or some part of it diminished. His mission in life is to help people to become more conscious on the planet and to live as a full expression of who they are. Some questions I asked Troy: (4:10) what process did you go through to transition from running the business that you felt stuck in, to the company that you run and own now? (6:30) What steps do you believe are the right steps to go from where people are to where people want to be? (10:35) What would you say to people who say they are too busy to meditate?

What’s the one thing you believe someone should master to maintain that good headspace every day? (21:10) What traits do you see with the entrepreneurs you work with? (22:15) What advice would you give to someone thinking about going out on their own or starting a new business?

(26:52) How do you go about setting your goals and mapping them out? (28:59) How important is it to have goals across all areas of your life? (29:48) What does work-life balance mean to you?
