  • Thursday, 07 August 2014 12:36
Deana-DurisicWhat do you do?
Founder and CEO of the High Performance Group by day. Stunt woman by night and some days.

Why do you do it?
I love the adrenaline of growing a business and also of doing stunts! I'm very passionate about helping people and with my business I have the opportunity to do that. I do stunts because I enjoy the physical challenge and it gives me such a rush!

What do you love about the city you live in?
I love Brisbane because of the beautiful sunshine, down to earth people, breathtaking beaches and lifestyle.

Where did you go for your last holiday?
I leave for Europe in a week but before that I went on a cruise around the pacific islands.

What's your favourite item of clothing? Why?
My black skinny ripped jeans because they are comfy and oh so stylish!

What was your favourite TV show when you were a kid?
Mr Squiggle & I think it still is my favourite!

If you could travel back in time for a day, where would you go?
To Buckingham Palace.

If we were coming over to your place, what would you cook for us?
Antipasto with fresh prawns, oysters, bread and wine.

What's the best lesson you've ever learned?
To value life, as each day is precious and ought to be enjoyed. I lived through the bombing in Serbia when I was 17 and have seen hell on earth. It showed me how strong I am and how much I love and value life. Nothing is so serious that you can't enjoy your day as everything passes with time and your attitude is the only thing that dictates what kind of day you will have. You just need to decide and create that! I have chosen to follow my dreams and enjoy the adventure along the way!

Tell us one thing about yourself that nobody else knows...
I'm lonely and I'm looking for true love. I don't talk about it as I am actually happy with my life but I am missing the love story. I have many wonderful friends and people in my life though which is a beautiful thing!

Are you happy with your work/life balance?
Yes I am now. I do have a tendency to run my body into the ground however I like living at that level of intensity and I'm happy to crash every once in a while and rest for a week than go again. I think you need to work hard, be determined and burn the midnight oil whilst you are building your empire.

How do you define success?
Being happy on all your dynamics in life. Personal, love life, work, social, planetary, god, animals etc...When you have all your dynamics doing well than I believe you are successful. There is no point in having all the money in the world if you have no love or lots of love but no money.

What's your spirit animal?
Lioness.
