Scotty Boxa, the mastermind behind it all. He began by experimenting with cocktail recipes and sharing them with the world, and went on to establish his own online media company BOXA Media and collaborate with some of the most well-known brands in the industry. And now the man behind the BOXA Network, He’s a true innovator and trailblazer in the field.
A few years ago, I was living what most would consider a “normal” life – working full-time, traveling the world, and staying active by doing a triathlon and running 5km daily.
However, everything changed when I suddenly found myself struggling with chronic pain that made it difficult to walk, use a computer mouse, or even breathe without discomfort.
Despite multiple MRI’s, CT scans, and blood tests, doctors were unable to diagnose the cause of my pain and told me it was “all in my head.” It wasn’t until later that I was finally diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), a rare and extremely painful neurological disorder that has limited treatment options.
During this difficult time, I learned the most important lesson of my life: that no amount of money or success would make me truly happy if I wasn’t doing what I loved. I used the small windows of opportunity that I could use the computer to create an online store, where I could sell my clothing, graphic art, and photography. This store was a huge success, and I expanded it to form BOXA Lifestyle, where you can find our most popular products, plus much more.
Before my CRPS diagnosis, I worked behind the scenes in the media industry, creating digital media content for high-end national clients such as Suncorp, McDonald’s, Austar, Commonwealth Bank, Subway, Stockland, Lendlease, Tourism Queensland, QLD Government, and Telstra. Now, I’m traveling Australia in my van, working on the road and sharing my travel experiences with the world. Despite the challenges I’ve faced, I’m grateful for the lessons I’ve learned and the opportunities I’ve had to pursue my passions.
