This is what others say about Andrew's...


"Hi Andrew, I want to say a HUGE thank you for writing ACCIDENTAL AUTHOR.  You have inspired me! It turned out to be exactly what I needed to get me over the line in BELIEVING I can achieve my dream of being an author."

"I finished reading 'Dance until it rains', I absolutely loved it, I couldn't put it down. I'm so glad you got it finished! Your Mum was a wonderfully inspirational woman. Your book has made me even more determined to tell my story."


Andrew was a huge motivational force in helping me to write my book. He was there to help me from the beginning, and thanks to Andrew, I was motivated enough to keep on track with my writing, and to complete the book."

"Andrew, I also wanted to thank you again for enabling me to do what I have done.  Without your support, your interest and your skill I would not have started this amazing experience let alone finished it and held my book in my hand.  I am an author not by accident, but because you gave me the skills and the confidence to be one."


"Andrew is with his audience - he has a powerful desire to engage audience into his message"

“Very inspiring talk. I came feeling quite flat … I left feeling motivated to make a change in my life”

"As part of our Health and Wellbeing Program Andrew Jobling facilitated a half day session for employees around  long term health and wellbeing. This was rolled out Nationally for over 200 of our employees. Andrew was able to actively engage with our staff and provide an energetic and fun session providing constructive reinforcement of ideas and learnings. The feedback from employees and managers was some of the most positive feedback I have ever received about a training session or facilitator."
Susan, Costa Group


"Andrew Jobling came to speak to our Year 8 and Year 9 students about goal setting, and never giving up. He was engaging, he encouraged the boys to look within themselves for their strengths, and  always have the perseverance to keep trying. The boys found him to be motivating, funny, and relatable.
His message is particularly relevant to students ready to take their next step in their life journey. His personal delivery, and his professional approach meant that all students were engaged with his message."
Cassie, Trinity Grammar

"Andrew, thank you for coming in to speak to our student leaders about the importance of determination and having the right mind set. The feedback from our students was that your presentation was engaging and worthwhile; and they got to know each other a little better during the interactive activities."
Louise, Balwyn HS


"I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the live video Funshop. The information was invaluable and interesting. Great to hear other's experiences too. Andrew engages his audience in a relaxed but professional manner. He is full of positive energy which is contagious and inspires us all to believe in our own success."

‘We create our destiny by dreaming bigger than most people would think reasonable, by believing in ourselves more than most people would think sensible, by making decisions that most people would think illogical and continuing to act way beyond the point that most people would have given up.'

When the path is closed... Find another way!

Posted 11/12/2018

My beautiful wife Laura, has always said to me, just as I was about to dissolve into a pity-party tantrum because something didn’t go the way I wanted, that things don’t happen to me, they happen for me. It used to annoy me, but now it inspires me, because, I truly believe it. Every obstacle, challenge and adversity comes for a reason. It’s our job, if we really want a successful outcome, to; negotiate it, find another way and keep going.

Work within limits, but... Outside comfort zone!

Posted 11/5/2018

I have been in Italy with my wife Laura, my mother-in-law, Teresa, and father-in-law, Paul, for three weeks now and it has been an amazing trip, so far. What I am learning, with every day I live, is that most of us live a life well short of what is truly possible. We are taught from a young age, by many people, to stay and work within our limits. Now, you’re probably expecting me to disagree with that statement, right? Sorry to disappoint you, I actually agree with it. The problem is, most people have no idea what their limits are nor how to stretch themselves to find out. So, I want to encourage you this week to explore your true limits.

Every so often... Choose to disconnect!

Posted 10/28/2018

I am connected. In fact, I think I may be addicted to connection. Connection to my phone, my internet, my social media, my website, my database and non-stop thoughts about what I should be doing. Well, things have recently conspired to get me disconnected from technology and reconnected to important people and the amazing world that is out there and all around. As I write this I have been away from home on my European adventure and on a Mediterranean cruise for almost two weeks. For much of that time, I have been disconnected, and I’m now, believe it or not, loving it.

In pursuit of a dream… Un’Avventura Italiana!

Posted 10/17/2018

I’m excited! I’m a little sleepy, have a bad hairdo and a sore neck, but excited. As I write this, Laura and I are at 38000 feet in a long tube speeding over the Indian Ocean, just flying past Kuala Lumpur on our way to Abu Dhabi and then on to Rome. This trip is the next stage in a dream to live in Italy that has been in process for many years. It is a significant step and one that was inspired after almost letting the dream slip away. This blog is to encourage you to focus on, refresh or find your dream and to never give up until it’s a reality.

Be careful or you'll... be 'too healthy'!

Posted 10/3/2018

I was at church on Sunday, feeling very inspired after a great message from our pastor, when I went into the coffee room to have herbal tea and a healthy snack. Now, not all the snacks are healthy, but there are a few which are great for me. As I was waiting at the counter to get my tea and my carrots, celery and dip snack, there was a man behind me. I didn’t see him, I just heard him, and, what I heard has inspired this week’s blog.

If not the cockroach... Be the centipede!

Posted 9/28/2018

Back in June I wrote a blog called, ‘Of all creatures, choose to be the cockroach.’ I spoke about their resilience, their versatility and their adaptability. I know being a cockroach is not something many people aspire to. I’m not sure if being a centipede is something many people would aim for either, even though they are a little less objectionable. I will say this, however, centipedes have a character trait you need if you want to be successful in life

Don't believe your words... Believe only your actions!

Posted 9/22/2018

Have you ever said that you were going to do something and then not done it? Me too. Has anyone ever said to you that they were going to do something they didn’t ever do? Me too. Have you noticed that some people are really convincing when they speak? So believable that you are sure they will follow-through and do what they have proclaimed? Saying that you are going to do something is actually really easy, doing it… not so. This blog is not about me, nor is it about other people. This week I want to encourage you to do an honest reality check, and, ask if you believe the stories you are selling yourself, or, actually following through with the actions to back them up.

What are you stressing about? Everything is good!

Posted 9/14/2018

When we think about it, we really are incredibly blessed. If you are reading this, you can read. If you are seeing this, you can see. If you are breathing, you are alive. If you’re alive, you are eating and living in a comfortable home, I presume. If you are eating and living, you are earning an income. If you are earning an income, you are giving value to an organisation and/or other people in order to receive that income. If you are adding value to others, you are making a difference in this world. If you are making a difference, then you are fulfilling the purpose you have been born for. And this is just the beginning. With so much to be grateful for and excited about, why do we spend so much of our life stressed and worried?

Your body, bank or buddies don't care… If you're too busy!

Posted 9/7/2018

Strap yourself in this week, I have a message that I need to share with you, and, it may be uncomfortable to read. I’m actually writing it for myself, so it’s uncomfortable for me to read and to write! If you don’t want to face some truths right now, then maybe it isn’t the blog for you this week. If you have the courage to read it, I applaud you. Here it is; if you’re using, ‘I’m too busy,’ as an excuse to not focus on important things, you will regret it one day.

To see possibility,,, Climb the highest tree!

Posted 8/31/2018

Have you ever heard of a goat climbing a tree? When I came across this picture, it was the first time I had ever seen it. How do they get up there? Why do they want to get up there? They don’t look that comfortable, do they? So, it’s probably not because they have nothing better to do. They are after food they can only find in the trees, but even more importantly, from an elevated position, they can see the lay of the land, any potential danger and they get a vision for their next move. Hmm, interesting!
