Hi there,

I'm Mantist Oryem

My world is filled with diverse endeavors. I create engaging learning and development content. Under the alias MantistMusic.com, I express my artistry as a recording artist & spoken word poet.

I’m also an entrepreneur and business owner, spearheading ventures like GetPaidLivingYourPassion.com and MantisticPro.com.

In addition, I’m deeply committed to coaching and mentoring others, driven by a desire to enact positive change. In the midst of it all, I cherish my role as a father to two endlessly energetic kids.

When it comes to topics of discussion, I’m particularly passionate about personal and leadership development, team building, achieving financial independence, and breaking the cycle to establish generational wealth.


I can sum up my 35-year life journey so far in 3 different phases…3 different dominant state of mind I experience:

My - Bio

Story Of overcoming to becoming

I came to Australia back in 2004 as a refugee migrant with nothing but a suitcase and a dream. I was a 16 year old kid running on empty.

I could barely speak any English. I had zero marketable skillsets, A broken self image and for years, I felt totally powerless and outta place.

Survival period

Rewind back, I was born in South Sudan. A war torn country for generations. I spent 10 years of my childhood in refugee camps barely surviving. Would I eat today? Would I be safe today? — Type things.

That was my daily state of mind. Raise by a sing mum with no father power.

My father died in action when I was only 2…fighting for what I’ve been fighting for basically most of my life — FREEDOM.

And that’s my background. As I think back, nobody could have guess…not even myself that one day, I would be a success.

Fast Forward…2015 was really the BIG turning point in my life. I was 26. Through all those compounded sequence of events, I came to a point where I just had it. So, I made a concrete decision to break the circle. My 1st goal was financial independent…I wanted to be free from the need of a paycheque before I was 40 so I can do my own things and call my own shots.

The 1st thing I did was, I became a student for success & study.

I wanted to know how successful entrepreneurs & business owners think & operate.

I’ve learnt, without exception, they all take total personal responsibility & accountability for their lives. That was BIG for me.

Because, up until then, I think I had PhD for blaming & complaining a lot.

“Rich people this, rich people that…the gov this, the gov that.”

You name it, I complained about it. 

So, I decided to turn everything that was once on my excuse list for not doing well, into fuel to attack and win.

The lack of money, the lack of skills, the old cars that break on the road, the debts and the pile up bills that felt impossible to get on top off.

My mantra became PLAY to WIN…Zero tolerance for E.V.E. 

I was totally committed to “hustle until I didn’t ever have to struggle.” 

And the rest is really history.
