Wealth Dynamics: When is a shortcut not a shortcut?

When talking about Wealth Dynamics, Roger Hamilton points out that successful people follow radically different paths to wealth.  Bill Gates and Warren Buffett – for years the #1 and #2 richest men in the world – have completely different ways of being successful. Gates had all his eggs in one basket, relying on innovating within…

Where’s your focus?

We’ve all heard it said so many times it’s almost corny, and it’s still true – you get what you focus on. Not magically – by a lot of effort. And that effort is directed by what you focus on. So if you’re focussing on getting a new car, you’ll spot opportunities to get it…

Do what you love and the money will come!

What a crock of ****! I love sitting around in beachfront bars, sipping a cold beer, occasionally glancing up from some esoteric tome to observe the passing totty. Regrettably, I can’t find a way to “monetize” that. I also love talking to people about their aims and objectives, and asking awkward questions they don’t want…

So your big product launch failed …

So, armed with a next-to-nothing budget and a half-way decent network, you tried to launch your new offering onto the world, and it just hasn’t taken off as you’d hoped.  Don’t feel too bad about it … I’m reading Buyology by branding expert  Martin Lindstrom, and in the first chapter he reveals that on average…

Many entrepreneurs are like…

What have you done today to make you feel proud?

I am constantly inspired by the words of Heather Small’s “Proud” – some of the uplifting lyrics in it include:

Look into the window of my mind
Reflections of the fears I know I’ve left behind

I’m on my way
Can’t stop me now
And you can do the same

You could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom

I step out of the ordinary
I can feel my soul ascending

So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

Each day I ask myself that question, xxx

Be a “con-artist”: get paid for doing what you love!

I read somewhere a while back (my notes say it was in a Dan Sullivan article, but I didn’t note the title) that all successful entrepreneurs are essentially con artists – because they get other people to pay them for doing what they love, and would happily do for nothing.  Now I’m a great advocate…
