A day in the life of Shane Ellis
Senior Consulting Lawyer, Member National Speakers Association of Australia, Managing Director of the Robina Corporate Centre housing the Robina Enterprise Incubator designed to accelerate emerging businesses, & Family Man. . . . . taking a gasp of breath. . . .it’s all in a day in the life of Shane Ellis!!!!
Shane is a true Gold Coast local having attended secondary schooling on the southern end of the coast. Due to a difficult home life he chose to leave home before completing school and was sleeping on his best friend’s floor whilst completing his Higher School Certificate. Immediately after leaving school he commenced work as an Articled Law Clerk earning the princely sum of $92.00 per week with law firms in Coolangatta, and worked on weekends as a glassy in clubs and hotels to pay the bills. From there Shane proceeded to complete his law degree through external studies, and became an Associate and then an equity partner in the firm that he was working with. He then chose to go it alone & over the next 12 years he built one of the Gold Coast’s biggest and most awarded law firms before choosing to bow out in 2006 for a long hard earned sabbatical. His firm won Best of the Gold Coast Awards for 3 consecutive years for service as voted by readers of the region’s largest newspaper.
In early 2009 Shane was called by needy people into a number of complicated and large legal matters. He has since been assisting clientele with business structuring, commercial contracts, Wills & estate planning, and small business advice. He is proudly a mentor/coach and supporter of the BusinessLifeline Gold Coast, the National Speakers Association of Australia, VIP Seniors Club, and Gold Coast youth via The Success Project presentations delivered by him to over 7000 young adults. He is 27 years into being happily married to his childhood sweetheart (the same person whose floor he slept on whilst completing his exams), and has 3 great kids, a son doing business at Bond university, and 2 beautiful girls in senior school at All Saints Anglican College. He has 2 dogs, a budgie, and a prized marine aquarium where he spends time sipping on a cold beer at the end of the day and talking to the fish. (No that is not crazy, just very relaxing.) The dogs walk Shane twice a day. The bird pulls the hairs on his neck. Shane enjoys family time at the beach or anywhere that is purely in spirit such as in nature, time with friends, watching rugby & having fun. That is what life is truly about. He is the author of 2 books on human performance & numerous articles to magazines and publications.
Shane will give you a business and asset protection check up to ensure you have the necessary firewalls in place to protect you for the unexpected. Due to his extensive experience in speaking and training he will speak in terms you understand, often drawing pictures on the white board so it is all clear for you.
