I’m 44 years old, I live in Perth, Western Australia with my wife Shaye (the good looking one on the home page), my two adult children, Brendan and Shelby, her partner James and my dog Texas Rose (who’s a human in disguise).
Business is simple, not easy: The fact is, 94% of self-made millionaires succeeded making it big in everyday ordinary businesses.
So, business is still the best way to get you to your Ultimate lifestyle and total financial freedom. Yes, even in this challenging new economy.
However, I’ll put one qualifier on that though, and that’s …if you know how.
There are right ways to go about
being successful, and there are wrong ways. Imagine a balanced work-life balance, more clients, strong cash flow, Extraordinary results and real wealth and financial freedom!
You see maybe like you I started from humble beginnings where money was scarce, and there was not much left over after buying the necessities.
Thinking back to my childhood, I did not know I was going to be an entrepreneur and a business person. The unusual turn of events in life is not planned or orchestrated, more forged out of circumstances and, at times, hardships and misfortunes.
The neighbourhood I grew up in was quite rough and challenging at times. You became street savvy at an early age.
The only exposure I had to wealthy people was my godparents. We rarely saw them, maybe once every couple of years when we would go to their mansion to spend the day.
Their lavish house was on the river with the best views and everything you could imagine. All of this for an eight-year-old – it was an adventure.
A huge below-ground swimming pool with a built-in spa and a real-life diving board. Brand new Sports car in the driveway. Quite impressive in 1980. No one else we knew lived like this particularly where I lived.
Apart from the house and cars, they owned a thriving restaurant in the local area, and it was here that I joined the dots as to why they were different than we were.
The connection in my mind was that owning a business equalled big houses, nice things and all of the luxury’s I did not have, and now wanted.
Much water has passed under the bridge and now, having built sold and owned over five businesses and counting myself, I know all about
the difficulties entrepreneurs face on a daily basis.
From starting with nothing to generating over 40 million in revenue, toppling down the side of the mountain and nearly losing everything.
Unfortunately business is not all sunshine and rainbows the changes in the marketplace have presented a cash cow for opportunists trying to make a quick buck.
Entrepreneurs like you and I are built to climb, work hard try new tactics and embark on new opportunities.
Those very qualities can be the “Kriptonight of Entrepreneur” often leaving them worn down overwhelmed and vulnerable to “Get Rich Quick Artists.”
You may also find yourself caught up in this hyper-paced business environment overwhelmed and frantically searching for a solution to have latched onto a bag of false promises taking you further in the wrong direction. And Costing You Dearly.
“I opened the door to opportunity with the pain of failure to my future successes.”
Through the disappointment of being taken for a ride by unethical opportunists and having “The Perfect Storm” of business challenges arrive at my doorstep, I decided to stay and fight.
I realised I went on an extremely challenging journey to solve my own problems, and now my mission is to help people just like you.
When I stumbled across the answers, I finally realised why I was working so hard and getting nowhere. I made a promise to myself to help others find where the money is hiding in their business.
Owning a business should be a rewarding endeavour, not a life sentence.
Unfortunately, most business owners settle for underperforming, profit, no time and overwhelm as “The New Normal.” Because they never adopted a Strategic Systemized approach taught by the right coach or mentor.
My mission is to transport business owners from Frustration to freedom enhancing the wealth and well-being of business owners through Entrepreneurial Excellence, helping them create Assets that make money for the rest of their business life.
