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."

In 2019, commit to... Thinking Big

Posted 1/5/2019

We are here, in 2019. Wow, can you believe it? Another year gone and a new one ahead. I want to encourage you to do something that maybe very different and very scary for you, as you head into 2019. I want to suggest that you believe more, expect more and dream more about what is possible for you this year. I want to ask that you let go of the past, the mistakes, the failures and the poor choices. I want to propose that you take the lid of your brain and… Think Big!

It's simple, each day, to pull a weed!

Posted 12/28/2018

I am so not a gardener. I am not inspired by gardening, I don’t dream about gardening and I really don’t even enjoy gardening. I do, however, love looking at beautiful gardens, I love walking through gardens and I love sitting in our backyard, that Laura has so wonderfully tended to, and enjoying the sounds, the smells, the calmness and the serenity. I just don’t want to be the person who does the backbreaking work to get it to that condition.

You need to risk loss to... Experience Joy!

Posted 12/21/2018

I have to admit it… it’s been a tough week or so. I have had dogs as a child, but I have never been as emotionally invested as I was with our beautiful Mr Big. I honestly had no idea how hard it would be making the decision to end his life, even though it was the best thing for him, and then to deal with the grief that comes with losing someone close. The last 10 days since he passed has been littered with tears, with regrets, with heartbreak and with unsettling thoughts as to  whether, if we’d done things differently, maybe he would still be with us. What I do know, amongst all the pain, the heartache and the tears, is that the overwhelming feelings, both Laura and I have, are love and joy. An intense love for this little dog and joy that he was with us for 16 years.

Make the most of... Every opportunity!

Posted 12/15/2018

It’s with a heavy heart I write this blog. Laura and I had to make the hardest decision of our lives this week. Our beautiful dog, Mr Big, had been unwell and declining rapidly since we returned from Italy. A visit to the vet and some blood tests showed serious kidney and liver issues. He had lost a lot of weight, was not eating or drinking and was in a lot of discomfort. It broke both of our hearts, but on the vet's recommendation and with his best interests in mind, we chose to peacefully end his suffering. This blog is written, with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat, as a dedication to a little man who changed our lives, and one who made the most of every second of and every opportunity in his sixteen years on this planet. It’s my hope as you read this, you will stop procrastinating and get up to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.

The only truth is... What you believe!

Posted 12/8/2018

It was the wonderful Henry Ford, inventor of the Ford motor car, who said, 'Whether you think you can, or think you can't... you're right.' The more I deal with the voice in my own head and the more I talk to people wanting to get healthier, create additional sources of income, chase their dream or become a successfully published author, the more I find that the overwhelming evidence is pointing to the fact that most people believe they can’t, and so… they don’t. It’s an absolute tragedy, because the potential, capacity and ability of every person on the planet is far greater than what most people will ever believe or act upon. I’m still working on myself, for sure, and as I do, I want to again try to help you believe that you can do, have or become anything you want and are willing to work towards it. I know it’s hard, if you have a well-established self talk saying you can’t, but I hope this inspiring true story helps a little…

Success is not about talent & grades... It's all about effort!

Posted 12/1/2018

There is a massive misconception in the world and it’s having a devastating effect on the lives of many people, and, the things they are achieving. It is the result of a limiting mindset that has been perpetuated and reinforced over many generations, and, it’s holding people back from reaching the incredible potential that lies inside of them. I have to write this blog after a session I had with a group of year 7 students this week. I need you to understand this message, apply in your life and then spread it. Are you okay with that?

Bring it to life, and... Test drive your dream!

Posted 11/26/2018

I wrote a blog six weeks ago titled, Un'avventura Italiana, as Laura and I were leaving for our six-week Italian adventure. Well, this week’s blog is being written with a slightly heavy heart, but incredible determination as I’m sitting on a plane flying from Italy back to Melbourne. We left Australia in mid October with a dream, we are returning to Australia with so much more. We are flying back to Melbourne with a passion and purpose to create a reality… all because we decided to take our dream out for a test drive.

Allow yourself to be... Divinely guided!

Posted 11/20/2018

One of the things I am most proud of about Laura and I, on this Italian adventure, is our decision to let go of the need for firm plans, advance bookings and a strict itinerary. It got close for us as we left Cinque Terre to head to Turin and in fact, it wasn’t until 5pm on the day that we finally found accommodation for that evening. That one was a bit close for comfort, but we had faith that we would find a place, and, we did. We are on a mission this trip, and that is to find the place in Italy we want to live. We have decided that, as Italy has so many amazing places we can’t possibly see in six weeks, we need to rely on a power greater than anything else. We have chosen to rely on divine guidance, and so far, it’s done the job perfectly for us.

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.
