The Green Machine Promotions founder’s address to the Gosnells-based centre’s expo at the City of Canning proved there were more parallels between fighting and business than the crowd members might first have thought.

He spoke about motivation in hard times, and his belief that in tough games, people who wanted to be the best had to train the hardest.

‘Learn to deal with pain for something you love,’ he said.

‘I only steer my energies into things I like and enjoy.’

He said if the venture was something someone loved and believed in, and they had a vision for the future, they should get started.

‘Jump in the shower, grit your teeth and just go for it,’ he said.

Mr Green answered questions from business owners on subjects as diverse as combining charitable work with business, developing Facebook pages, apps and websites, professional fighting and of course, Dancing with the Stars. The expo was attended by people from over 40 businesses.
