Luke Fenwick has had a corporate career spanning over 20 years across numerous industries, including luxury goods and professional sports at organizations such as Louis Vuitton Moet, Hennessy, and Melbourne United Basketball Club.

He is a father and husband and chose to follow his purpose and become a life impact coach to help people gain awareness of their vision and goals and their deeply held beliefs to create a positive impact in their lives.

His official teaching is derived from the Jay Shetty Genius School for Life Coaches; however, his approach with clients has been shaped by coaching and mentoring people over 20 years and studying experts.


“If you don’t have a strong handle on your beliefs, the things that shape your life, and what you believe around yourself, then that will impact your goals and your ability to get there.”

Worst investment ever

Chasing the money

 Luke was working for the Melbourne United Basketball Club when he got a job opportunity in Australia. The new position offered more money, and even though he found joy in working for the club, he liked the idea of making more money. Luke could now afford to do property development and other investments, so he took the job.

Regretting his decision

Luke had thought that the new job was something that he would do for 10 or more years. However, all of a sudden, he started feeling that this was not it for him. Every day, for six months, he would wake up at 4 am dreading to go to work. The job didn’t align with his passion and purpose, and he hated it.

Walking away

After months of anxiety and hating his job, Luke spoke to his wife about how he felt and why this job would not be long-term. They decided that he should quit and follow his passion. After so much reflection, Luke decided that this was enough, and things needed to change, and he left the job.

Lessons learned

Self-validation is important

Most people look for validation from others and not from within. They look for that praise or that pat on the back from their peers and friends so that they can feel confident. Real confidence, though, comes from self-validation. This is especially important if you’re looking to do challenging things outside of the box.

Pause, reflect and ask yourself what is your legacy

Take time to understand what’s happening in your life. Ask yourself how your life impacts other people in your life, what your legacy is, and do you like how things are turning out.

Enjoy the journey

Take a pause and enjoy the journey. Be grateful for the far that you’ve come no matter what’s going on in your life. Don’t get stuck on always focusing on what was further down the road.

No one is perfect

Failure is part of life. Don’t dwell on the times life is imperfect.

Andrew’s takeaways

Be ready to quit often

When you find something that’s not working for you, don’t be afraid to leave it. Often, people don’t leave things because they fear the unknown, but it’s ok to walk away and say it wasn’t for me.

Be grateful

Learn how to step back and count your blessings, especially in times of crisis.

Actionable advice

Whether life is good or you’re struggling, take the opportunity to pause, reflect, and look at the legacy and life you’re creating. If you’re not satisfied with what you think life will be in 10, 20, 30, or 40 years from now, then start to make some changes now.

No. 1 goal for the next 12 months

Luke has a vision that by 2025, he will have impacted one million lives. His goal for the next 12 months is to continue engaging with people, get in front of many businesses, and do as much coaching as he can.

Luke also wants to keep learning, growing, getting better every day, being more mindful and aware of what he needs to work on. If he does all of those things, he’ll become a better dad, better husband, and better coach and impact more lives.

Parting words


“Don’t let those weeks, months, and years pass you by without embracing the conversations going on in your mind, and not giving them the energy to explore and figure out how your life could go from good to amazing.”
