Kanji Low is a World Class Australian based Business Coach, Mentor and Co-Founder of Xperience Online a revolutionary gamified self-development platform creating immersive experiences where you can earn while you transform. He has been featured in YahooFinance, Thrive, Medium and Influencive. He has worked with clients from all over the world in this digital age and in these unprecedented times.
Working with committed individuals, Kanji synergizes with conscious entrepreneurs and coaches through his signature 1 on 1 mentoring program, group coaching and servant leader community. Kanji has helped clients launch and scale their coaching business, achieving their first $20K month as 6 figure coaches and beyond, allowing them to transform their lives financially, spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Kanji wasn’t always where he is now. Working day in and day out in a corporate IT role, Kanji always felt as though he was meant for more. Specifically, he felt that his energies shouldn’t be solely focused upon his side-hustles outside of his 9-5, but towards developing himself into the kind of person that could profoundly serve others. Through explorations of multiple ventures, from flipping Air Jordan’s to teaching languages, Kanji felt that what came most naturally to him was his ability to listen, develop and educate others.
Kanji now helps entrepreneurs and coaches positively impact the world through their life’s mission and service. According to him, it all comes down to growth and contribution – how his clients utilise their self-development journeys, and how they will pass this along to others. “It’s not what the clients get or what I provide, ultimately it’s beyond us and is about what the clients will do to pass these experiences to the people they serve,”
Here we sit down with Kanji, as we learn more about his journey as an entrepreneur.
What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
Kanji: Kanji came from humble beginnings where he witnessed how his parents who migrated from Malaysia were always working and never had time for themselves. He has always felt there was more than one way of doing things in life that the traditional system of going to school and getting a job. He’s always wanted to live a life of freedom and give back to his family as they have worked hard their whole life to support him. Everyone that is paving the way in the world from Jeff Bezos to Elon Musk all started from humble beginnings and this has always been an aspiration of mine to find my own purpose and help others find theirs through business and spirituality.
How did you get started?
Kanji: During studying at university and working in his corporate IT job, Kanji has explored multiple ventures from flipping Air Jordan, building websites, resume templates, SEO marketing, family restaurant and teaching languages. Kanji was focused towards developing himself when he started his self development journey in 2017 unbeknown to him at the time into the kind of person that could profoundly serve others.
It was in 2019 when things really shifted, Kanji got introduced to a mentor who unlocked belief, clarity and provided him the tools to launch an online coaching business. From there, Kanji felt that what came most naturally to him was his ability to listen, develop and educate others through online coaching.

What was your biggest startup challenge? What steps did you take to overcome it? What did you learn?
Kanji: With any startup or business, the beginning is always a challenge but in particular when I started as a business coach, the biggest start-up challenge was bringing on my first client as a business coach. I remember posting content I have never posted before only getting like 5 likes for my Facebook videos and at the time my Instagram was a food blog, I pretty much started from nothing booking in calls with work colleagues on this new venture who didn’t value what I was doing, people not messaging back, people not turning up to calls, people saying no to my offers. The steps I took was that I booked in calls, did crazy marketing strategies including tagging 99 people on one post on FB, I also booked in call after call with people who only wanted to want to change. It wasn’t until New Years Eve where I just celebrated this new me that I got a message who banked in my first high ticket sale. Through each experience, I learnt that resilience, grit and failure are necessary for success in anything you put your energy into. I learnt that changing your personality really changed your personal reality as it was the identity I was being that was getting me these results.

In terms of legacy, what is the mark you’d like to leave on the world?
Kanji: The legacy I want to leave is to awaken the world’s potential as an industry leader in self development and education as a guide to bring out the best version of them and their own life’s mission.
In one sentence, what’s the best advice you’d give to someone just starting out on their entrepreneurial journey?
Kanji: The best advice I’d leave for someone starting out is to “Fall in love with being the best version of yourself.” When you commit to serve for yourself and those around you, you fall in love with improving not just yourself but as a by-product everyone around does as well. As Gandhi says, “be the change you want to see in the world” it always starts from within you.
