Korey Gibson - 1977
Why I Wanted to Interview Korey
Korey is someone who knows a lot about motivation. Well rounded in both his personal and professional life, Korey Gibson would like to be known as a lover of family, a businessman and gym owner, a MMA fighter, a hunter gatherer, a former Rugby League player and as someone who is hugely proud of both his Maoritanga and of being a Kiwi.
I was interested in exploring what drives Korey to do the things he does, and to get his take on what role motivation has played in his success, both personally and professionally. As a gym owner and long-time athlete I was also keen to get Koreys’ take on the factors that contribute to, and take away from building and maintaining motivation.
