He and his wife have worked together to create many businesses across a wide range of passions. In 2002 Dr John created a company called Australian Beauty Secrets which provided organic skin care products marketed to both men and women. The company grew successfully and was eventually sold. Dr John has opened three Chiropractic Practices in which two were sold and he currently actively practices part-time in the third. In 2004 Dr John and a partner opened a company called Cool Down Fire Up which provided high grade cooling vests to the military, professional athletes, large corporations and individual owners. Cool Down Fire Up is still in operation today under another trade name as Dr John successfully sold his interest in the company to expand other passions.

“It’s the martial arts and my yoga practice that has moulded who I am today. It’s the development of discipline, vision, action, and the patience to look deep within that has created a hunger and personal power to grow, to love and to contribute beyond myself.” - Dr John
