Carl Taylor, started out as an introverted shy individual who would do anything he could to not stand out in a crowd.

After investing over $100,000 into learning from great mentors, reading countless books and regularly attending workshops on wealth, business, finance, goal setting and personal development before the age of 24, his life has transformed and he is now an inspiration to many.

Carl got started in business when he became a sole trader at the age of 15, launching ZainyFX a web design and web hosting company that he ran from home, while still juggling being a school student and working part time as the youngest assistant manager of a Pizza shop. Carl’s confidence continued to develop while co-writing and singing in the band Shopping For Trolleys, which involved a battle of the bands performance a his first taste at being in front of a crowd.

Since those early years of business and performance, he has gone on to be involved in numerous different businesses in a variety of industries. While running these businesses he has made plenty of mistakes that have at times cost a lot of money but its from these mistakes that some of Carl’s best learning experiences have come from.

In 2003, Carl bought into his fathers IT Support company and ran this for many years from their family home. In 2006 a cold call from a business coach changed Carl’s life setting him on the path of learning from those who had walked the journey before him.

In early 2007, Carl purchased a small Gift Basket business being run from weekend markets and fax based orders, 18 months later he sold the business as a fully systemised and online business servicing companies like Pepsi and the Sydney Opera House.

In 2011, Carl sold the IT Support Company he had run for 8 years after growing it from the family home into an office with 5 staff and clients across Australia and decided to focus on speaking and mentoring other business owners through his business education company Business Builders Academy.

In 2014, after years of running business seminars throughout Australia, Carl quit coaching and founded Automation Agency a Done-For-You online marketing agency helping small business owners actually implement the latest marketing tools and strategies and not just learn about them. Today Automation Agency works with hundreds of small businesses and online marketers all over the world including United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Carl continues to live by his belief that his only job is to be the best he can possibly be and help others be the very best that they can be. This can be seen through his continually helping nature and from his ability to inspire and nurture those around him.

Red Means Go!, Carl’s first book was written in 5 days while holidaying between Christmas Day and New Years Eve 2009 and was rated #1 New & Noteable Business audiobook by iTunes in 2010.

Carl’s entrepreneurial career has led to him being named in the 30 Under 30 Awards 2 years in a row, as well as being named in the Top 10 Young & Influential Awards in 2012.

What started in 2010 as a way to promote his book through speaking at a number of events including Tomorrow’s Youth, NSW Young Entrepreneur Stepping Up Program, Warringah Chamber of Commerce quickly became a personal passion and after years of practice and working with some of the worlds leading speaker trainers has since gone on to be regarded as one of Australia’s most engaging speakers that is regularly asked to speak at business events throughout Australia and United States on the topics of Entrepreneurship, Online Marketing and Personal Growth.
