A professional Sea Captain with a love for being out on the water in work and in play, Sean Prosser decided to start a small business in his field as a part-time venture – a side hustle.

With an idea in hand, Sean approached Advisor Darren Wrigley through the Business Connect Program, to seek advice on a potential opportunity for a small startup business. In Sean’s initial meetings with Darren, they reviewed his goals for the business and realised there was far greater opportunity for growth, beyond his initial plan. The two set to work on building a full pitch, application and presentation to an international company, iAqua, and from there, iAqua Watersports was born.

By 2019, Sean won the bid to be the sole national distributer for iAqua’s portable electronic underwater propulsion devices or water scooters, with various products suitable for recreational purposes, right through to a professional divers’ standard.

To say Sean got more than he ever expected through his Business Advisory sessions is an understatement – he is now a national distributor with strong sales and a solid income, validating his decision to aim high and dream big for his business.

Sean continues to work with Darren, planning his financials, cash flow and marketing opportunities to grow his business to its highest potential.

On his new business venture, Sean said “I’m excited about my future career and business plan to grow my business for myself and for my family.”

The iAqua Stingray offers remarkable diving to depths of up to 30m. The depth can be controlled and programmed prior to entering the water. The depth is adaptable to suit individual preferences and requirements. To ensure a high level of safety at all times, there is an extremely reliable cut-out feature that insures this underwater propulsion device cannot exceed the depth programmed.
