The Startup Dad Journey of Robert Coorey

“I don’t think you should take risk for risk sake. But I do think that if you look at a situation and you have an opportunity in front of you and you think it has a reasonable success of being good then you should go for it and you should not be fearful. Because I think one of the biggest mistakes you can make especially when you’re starting a business on the side, like if you have a full time job and you’re just getting started, is watching those pennies to carefully. I know everyone says be careful and don’t waste money and things like that but at the same time every business is going to waste some money and I think you need to be trying a lot of things and investing in different areas to make things happen a bit faster. Otherwise, you’ll just grow to slowly by not trying enough stuff and refusing to invest in anything.” by Robert Coorey

Family First:
  • Review family fun photo (image above) –  Wife and two sons
  • Balancing family and business by: I wake up early in the mornings and spend sometime with my kids. When I need to do work, I do it in blocks of time.
  • What does Fatherhood mean to you: Guiding and nurturing as well as leading by example to my children.
  • Household Chore: I am an expert on taking out the trash!
Along This Journey We Discuss:


  • I was always very successful in my corporate jobs. After a while I started to feel like a rabbit in a cage working in the corporate world.
  • I had all these great ideas and even though the businesses were supportive, I felt that I want to driver on some things and be the founder of my own destiny.
  • The very first business that I started up was five years ago, doing online videos for businesses. It wasn’t mainstream them, and so I worked very hard that year trying to get it off the ground.
  • After 12 months I only made 32K after filing my taxes coming from a very lucrative corporate job. I realized, I wasn’t feeding a starving crowd.
  • The catalyst that inspired his leap: I kept waking up in the morning and hated the idea of going to work. It just got to the stage where I couldn’t do it anymore, I had to make a change.
Life is short, now is the best time to go after your goals and dreams. There is never a good time to do itRobert Coorey

Real Dads, Real Talk:
  • Failure, Doubt and Fear: Not being a success in what I have done. For me that is extremely important. That is one of the negatives on being a high achiever.
  • Hardest Personal Sacrifice: Less social time.
  • Private Health Insurance: From an Australian perspective, you are able to purchase private insurance as a business owner. I purchased our coverage.
  • Intersection between Fatherhood and Entrepreneurship: I like to bring my kids to the office every now and then. They love it and get really excited about it. That is one way that I have been able to connect the two.
  • Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently? Before I left my corporate job, I would have made sure that I had customers already in place.
The HandyMan Segment: Tips | Tactics | Tools
  • What is one time management tool? Cloud up- whenever I take a screen-shot, it gives me a link, so I can share it with other people.
  • What attributes your success as an Entrepreneur, Father, and Husband- I would say my grit. I have a real passion about seeing things completed.
  • Manage Health: I go to the gym twice a week with a personal trainer.
  • Book every startup dad should read: Think and Grow Rich
