This short post will have the biggest impact on you… I promise!

Day 12 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hey Friends,

bookLeft1Today I would like to introduce you to Simon Sinek, he truly changed my life! We have not met yet but I follow everything that Simon does online, yes stalker style!

I read his book, “Start With Why” 5 years ago in 2011 and ever since I have defined my WHY and filter everything through it. I really mean everything. This blog and what I will launch in 2016 are all things I wanted to start to align more with my WHY.

While I highly, highly, highly recommend that you read the book, you will also get super inspired by his TED talk below. In fact it will be the best 18 minutes and 4 seconds of your life.

Start to understand that people don't buy what you do... they buy WHY you do it. Thanks @simonsinek Click To Tweet WIN: I will pick someone at random who shares this tweet above to win a copy of “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek book!

After you watch the video and order the book, start to think about what your WHY is and truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it. let me say that again. Truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it.

Whatever you do, private or business make sure it aligns with your WHY!

Yearly Challenge – 2016 I go Vegetarian

Hey Friends in 2016 I go Vegetarian!

Day 11 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Every year myself and a few friends do a yearly challenge. In 2016 we have decided to go Vegetarian for the whole year and also 1 month in 2016 be vegan, like most of the challenges they stick, so for me I am planning to be Vegetarian from 2016 and beyond.

The yearly challenge is great for willpower but it is also great for lifestyle and building habit. In 2015 we started to shop local and ditch shopping at the large supermarket chains like Coles and Safeway, this is 100% something that I will continue to do forever. Not only did we support local business we also saved money, who would have thought!

Some of the past yearly challenges have included, no coffee, no fast food, no soft drink and shop local.

So come on and jump on board, have a think about what challenge you need to do and commit for only 1 year, or even just do it for 1 month.

The best feeling is when you get to the end and you know that you can do it, and that you have the willpower to commit. If you can do a simple yearly challenge, then you can do anything.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all.

Comment below what challenge you will do in 2016!

Lots of Love


Just hit publish. Planning for 2016

Day 10 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Recently I was chatting to Troy Dean a friend and mentor of mine at a Christmas party and his advice as always blew me away.

His advice was to unsubscribe from what others are doing and just hit publish. So after that dinner I started to unsubscribe so far about 100 lists and counting. Now I am publishing… no edits, nothing fancy just starting to publish. I promise they will get better.

Below is a quick video on how I am planning for 2016!

Massive Action Will Kick Fears Ass

Day 9 of 30 Day blog challenge.

What Is Fear?

Hi friends, did you know there are 1000’s of Fears and Phobias. Fear is one of the most basic human emotions. It is programmed into the nervous system and works like an instinct. From the time we’re infants, we are equipped with the survival instincts necessary to respond with fear when we sense danger or feel unsafe.

However, some fears do not protect us or keep us safe at all, they really just holding us back in life. If you had a fear of public speaking, would you agree that public speaking is safe and not dangerous? The fear of public speaking is really just keeping you out of the public eye and holding you down. Could you imagine our Prime Minister (PM) having a fear of public speaking, do you think they would achieve much during his time in office. I don’t think so.

How to overcome a Fear?

My friends, I am no expert, however I have read many books and listen to many Audio Programs which all touch on Fears. In almost everything I have read and listen to they always say that Action is the only way to cure fear. If you have a fear of heights, and was offered a job which paid well, you would make an effort to overcome your fear and get on with the job. However in many cases there is no extra motive like a cash intensive or payment. So we need to find a new way to gain benefit from overcoming fears.

Each and every one of us will find different ways of overcoming a fear, but at the end of the day we just need to shut up and get out there and do it. The more you do it the easier it becomes, to the point that it will no longer be a fear. So if you would like to overcome the fear of public speaking, the more you put yourself in a position to deliver a speech the better you will be to  overcome your fear.

One of my old fears was meeting new people, few years ago my company was exhibiting at a Trade Show Event. This meant that I was representing my company on the show floor. At the start I was finding things to do, to avoid facing the visitors. After the first day I was walking up to people like I had known them for years! Now I love meeting new people, love it!

What about if I don’t want to overcome a fear?

Then please stop reading my Blog, I have started this blog for people to read and gain some useful knowledge. If you are that closed minded to overcome a fear and stay in your little comfort zone, then just stay there. Bit harsh? I think not, I just know who I want my readers abs listeners to be.

So always “Do what you fear and your fears will disappears”

Well it’s going to be a life of ups and downs, you ready?

Day 8 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi friends, just a quick post today.

ife_of_an_entrepreneurI have been doing a lot of reading lately about being an entrepreneur and the ups and down that go with it. This image to the right is a perfect representation to shows what a day for entrepreneur is like.

Everyday we boost our self up as being on top of the world full of confidence to only seconds later start to doubt that we are deserving of such a life and will never make it. Why? because we are programmed that being normal is more comfortable and being comfortable is safe. I like to call it mediocrity.

Over the years that I have found that while we want to share all our ideas with everyone around us, they are the ones who want to ‘protect’ us the most so often they will give not the wrong advise but advice that is skewed to protect us and keep us  safe.

I am not sating you can not listen to the ones around you, but my friends they will to some degree hold you back, I have seen it all too often and experienced it first hand. As entrepreneurs we just need to grab the bull by the horns and start to make something of nothing. When we are riding the bull its hard to stop, no matter what ‘protecting’ advice is given to us.

melb-weatherOn a side note… Looking at that image above with all the ups and downs, I have to say it is exactly the same ups and downs that the Melbourne weather follows, so I am calling it right now, “Melbourne is the best place to be an entrepreneur!” Even the weather follows our moods. If you live in melbourne you know what I mean, if not this image to the left should help you work out what I mean.

Lots of Love



Books that changed my life, now download Free as eBooks!

Day 6 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi friends, some Christmas freebies today, yay! Below are some of the books I have read that I can truly say have changed my life and set me up on the path to a great attitude, strong mindset and success. To me there is nothing more special then being able to share my knowledge and ideas of how to create a world of abundance.

To be honest I am getting sick of calling it the “self” help industry, it should be called “together” help. Working all together to teach each other new ideas and create change. Together everyone achieves more.

Feel free to download these free eBooks as PDFs which I have made available so I can share the ideas I have read about with you! Your welcome.

You may prefer, as I do, to download the Audio Book version which I have provided links to below. ( I Love Audio Books!!) (Not Free, but worth every cent!)

What’s Habit Got To Do, Got To Do With It?

Day 4 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi Friends ever wondered why so many companies offer free trials, lets face it, they are not doing it to be nice at all, this my friends is a marketing tactic that works! It all about building habit. It’s the same reason McDonald’s hosts kids birthdays.

If you have a product or service that you can offer a very low or free trial, I can assure you that your business will explode. Netflix is another example, they know if you get in the habit to having Netflix during their 3 months free trial, and you have regular Netflix and chill nights, then you are not going to cancel and in fact you will be a customer for life.

With any business idea you never want to change the way people do things, but you do want to alter their habit. Like Uber, you are still booking a car of some sort, you are just doing it via a different app. Still gets you from A to B. right? Do it enough times, get some free credits, refer a friend and bam this is now habit and you will never go back. it become the new you!

This is the same reason why you need to stick at something for at least 30 days, 60 is ideal. When you form a habit you move it from your conscious mind to your unconscious mind.

This is why I decided without hesitation that I would do the 30 day blog challenge. I want my blogging to become just as natural as me breathing. I just do it to survive.

Next year is going to get crazy, working on so many new and exciting things, can not wait to share them in the next few weeks!

I am looking for like minded and amazing human beings to get around so fee free to connect if you are keen to co-create some amazing shit in 2016.

You ready?

Why SYSTEM + FOCUS = Success

Day 3 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Have you heard of McDonalds? Well if you don’t know McDonalds is what we call a franchise and you can not be a franchise without a business SYSTEM. The power of a system is unreal, it works over and over, you just need to follow the system, like a recipe. A strong business system will work with or without you as the business owner and output the same results.

A system has the ability to save yourself time energy and money, see…

Energy &

The power is when you mix a great system with FOCUS, why? Have a look…


Focus allows our mind, body and soul to move in one direction until you are happy with the results.

So if you are after success you must tap into a system and focus!

You don’t know what you don’t know, so be sure to get in front of others who can show you what you don’t know.

Facebook will kill your positive attitude

Day 2 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hello friends, now i know we all can not live without Facebook, but what I can live without is all the negative news stories that make it to my feed. Over a year ago I was sick of the amount of negative news on my feed so I decided to start posting positive inspiration quotes, at first I would post them whenever, but then I notice that people started to like and enjoy them so I built a process that enabled me to post daily.

I am now ‘that guy’ that posts quote cards, but I don’t mind. People actually send me quotes now and get super excited when I post their quote on my wall. Feel free to add me on FB and see what I mean.

I have in fact come up with a whole business idea from this. Stay Tuned!
