My name is Tony “Jack the Bear” Mantz.
I am a passionate inspirational speaker and mentor.
I also own and operate a very successful mastering facility
—Deluxe Mastering www.jackthebear.com.au —
currently in its 25th year of operation in Australia.
I’ve had the privilege of speaking to many people, predominantly in the music and arts sectors,
and now it’s time to take my message to the world beyond.
Over the years this speaking has been incredibly fulfilling; but what I’ve found consistently troubling is this:
Many people dreamed of getting involved in the music industry, or pursuing their creative passion as a career,
but were shooting themselves in the foot before they even started.
Fear was the main reason for this.
In particular, it was the fear that they were not good enough.
This is a feeling I know very well; it’s my own journey through this fear that I share with audiences.
The talks are raw, yet authentic. They challenge; yet are also about inspiring people to look at where they are, understand how they got there, and more importantly, give some insights and strategies to assist in moving forward. It is my mission to assist people with this mindset shift; a mindset shift that is the cornerstone to real, lasting change.
