Embracing Challenges With Deb Farnworth-Wood

Update: 2022-07-26


Problem solving, self-leadership skills and persistence are key for any successful entrepreneurial endeavor, and yet these skills can be the hardest to learn.

Even the best business education cannot teach the lessons of entrepreneurship you only learn when deep in the trenches of your business. Regardless of your age, experience or where you are now in your business journey, if you learn the lessons of your failed attempts this is major progress and you will move up the mountain and closer to your goal at the top. A keen ability to figure out the problem instead of giving up, a defined and powerful sense of purpose and a positive attitude are characteristics that will win for any entrepreneur regardless of their experience. The skills of great entrepreneurship can be learnt - but it does require a strong enough “why” and a willingness to embody the lessons.

Sometimes, our “why” can be thrust upon us, for some, entrepreneurship was born as a matter of survival.

In this episode, Boo and Sean sit down with Deb Farnworth-Wood, owner of Issada Mineral Makeup & Clinical Skincare and Valor Organics. Deb was thrust into entrepreneurship at the age of 13 when she knew she had no choice but to get out of her family home and provide for herself. Deb’s journey of personal and financial independence began as a matter of survival and has resulted in Deb becoming the founder of the Australian Skin Clinics Franchise and has founded and/or grown 12 successful businesses ranging from Shop Fitting, a Regional Training Organisation and a Vasectomy clinic.

As an MBA graduate, a Certified Franchise Executive and a seasoned conference speaker. Deb’s passion for the aesthetics industry, sheer determination to succeed and refusal to quit has also gifted her the experience of over 30 years experience in the management of large, complex and multi-disciplinary healthcare organizations, including pharmacy, GP Services, surgical facilities, weight loss clinics, podiatry, nurse practitioners, counselling and secondary care services as well as shop-fitting, manufacturing and skincare.

This is one of the most powerful stories of entrepreneurship that does not disappoint. Prepare to be inspired and rewired to think more strategically, learn to embrace your challenges and overcome whatever life throws at you.
