Guy Grundy, former 2 x Mr. Australia and 2 x runner up of Bodybuilding World Championships talks about his book ‘Walking with The Soul Collector’

We had the pleasure of interviewing Guy Grundy, a former 2 x Mr. Australia and a 2 x runner up at the World Championships in Bodybuilding. He is also an Award Winning Actor, Director, Scriptwriter, Producer and Author of Walking with the Soul Collector.

Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

Hi, Please introduce yourself and share with our readers about what it is that you do.

Hi, I am originally from Australia, and one of my dreams was to come to America. I am now a US Citizen, which was the proudest day of my life. I am a former Rugby Player & would become 2 x Mr. Australia Bodybuilding champion, along with taking 2nd at the World Championship 2 years in a row.


I would become a published writer with over 100 articles published worldwide and my own Columns & features in MuscleMag. I would then become an actor appearing in 15 National Commercials and over 20 movies. I have also written the book ‘Walking with the Soul Collector‘, it is about my many wild and crazy adventures with Mavrick Von Haug.

Please tell us more about your journey. 

After arriving in Los Angeles, California, I quickly gained a reputation as a collector and enforcer! I had heard about Mavrick, the Soul Collector. His name was mentioned by people that mattered in the world of hard men and violence. The world of collectors and enforcers. It’s not often that so many people say such good things about one person in this world we were a part of. I am sure some had bad things to say about Mavrick. I would learn more about life, people, success & business, and a whole lot more than I ever did attending school.

How did you first meet Mavrick, The Soul Collector?

The first time I met Mavrick was on a collection that a mutual friend organized. It was in Santa Monica at a nice restaurant on Main Street. I rolled up with my mate and waited. Like in a movie, a silver 420 Mercedes rolls up with a red stripe and the ace of spades on the front end. It was a custom lowrider with some of the craziest rims that I have seen. To top it off, it had bulletproof windows. It was the ultimate bad man’s car. I would one day own that car! I felt like a little kid about to meet his Hero. A hero who happens to be a famous collector, enforcer, and world-renowned MMA champion. If I had a tail, it would be wagging. Mavrick parks, and it was like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood all in one got out of the car. Mavrick was wearing black boots, blue jeans, a white v-neck t-shirt, dog tags, a big silver watch on his left wrist, and a tan American Indian style jacket.


What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey? 

Awareness to know what you want and who you want to be. Secondly, to plan till the end and make plans to achieve those goals. Sacrifice helps; if what you’re doing isn’t bringing you closer towards your goal, don’t do it. Spend your time on things that are aimed at your goal. The more you sacrifice for your goal, the quicker & bigger it will come to you.

Also, you should have the will to do all of the above. As the great Vince Lombardi once said, it isn’t a lack of knowledge or strength to achieve one’s goals. It’s one’s will that determines one’s success!



Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?

Sure, we have a web series called Mavrick n Grundy. We have created & produced this series.
