Do you ever go to the same event more than once? Part of me used to say “been there done that and frequently bought the tee-shirt too!” Then I started to crew at personal development and property investment events. I knew the content as an audience member, but now my role changed into one where I had to help others – in a sense “teach” or “clarify” the content for others as they asked questions.
It’s all too easy to forget that simple question in our pursuit of new business. At a recent talk I gave the speaker before me had this point on his slide. I commented that it was a business critical point. Read More
I listened to my neighbor playing football with his son in the garden and I had to restrain myself form interrupting. Read More
Have you noticed how the same messages appear in your life over and over? I have been so busy this year – what a great experience so many opportunities from my book launch to speaking engagements, coaching clients, mentees and people wanting me to build their portfolios for them. Read More
I have often described myself as having OCD with a touch of ADHD in that I am very focused until I get distracted! It certainly does not come easily, which is possible why the distractions do come easily haahaa
Just recently I took possession of two new kittens – Mum 9 months called Minnie (because she is really a big mouse) and her baby 12 weeks called Mischief (who is actually more like Mayhem!!).
I dawned on me the other day as I drove home from a property event that I had been speaking at that I was planning all the work I could catch up on. I wasn’t think about spending time with the kittens.
What is the point of being entrepreneurial, creating a passive income so that I don’t have to work and then filling my time to the exclusion of family and kittens?
It’s not the first time and obviously something I need to pay attention too – I nearly said focus on.
The trouble with focus is that it is a “one thing only” kind of action Focus on One Course Until Successful but what about the journey – enjoying the view – spending quality time.
It’s a difficult balance to strike. Some people only get the lesson when they become ill or worse family members become ill.
Who do you need to spend more quality time with – are you feeling balanced or “over focused”?
To our mutual success, wealth and happiness

I have been really aware lately just how much effort some companies are putting into the presentation of their sales offer and wondered whether the presentation or the content was more important. I know that while I am attracted by presentation if the content fails to meet expectation then I am quite unforgiving, compared to a service for which I had no expectations. Read More
