The sad truth about the world of entrepreneurship

The sad truth about the world of entrepreneurship

There’s a sad state of affairs that happens in the world of entrepreneurship.

The fact is most people aren’t willing to do what it takes to get what they want and they are FULL of excuses;

It’s too hard

It’ll take too long

I don’t know how

It’s not a good time for me

This is tough.

It’s too challenging

It’s hard work!

It’s scary.

Do you know what I say to that!


and then…

Stop kidding yourself that you want the life that you say you want. 

Stop telling ME that you are willing to do what it takes.

Stop pussy footing around waiting for inspiration to strike before you take ACTION! 

Shut the hell up, and either DO THE WORK, or go and sit in the corner and watch your dreams and goals vanish before you as your life ticks by. 

Having the life that you want, setting sail in the direction of your dreams, no matter what stage you are at, ISN’T COMPLICATED. It is SIMPLE! 

As is running an online business like mine where I do exactly what I love, with people that are awesome, where I ALWAYS get paid on time, and where I can, when I feel like it, do it all in 16 hours a week. It is SIMPLE! 

Yet sometimes people look aghast that it is SO SIMPLE!

But where’s my 50 point plan of action? What about my blueprint? What about my One True System for success?

Do you know what? It’s ALL WITHIN YOU! It’s in your attitude, it’s in your tenacity, it’s in your resilience and it’s in your ACTIONS.

What’s it taken for me to get here (and I’m still not where I want to be – will any of us with high ambitions ever be?!)?

It’s taken me to HELL AND BACK.

It’s taken me to places so scary that I thought I was going to lose my mind.

It’s tested me in so many ways it’s felt like some evil torture device where, just as you think the torturer has applied every trick in his book, he comes up with ANOTHER way to make you suffer!

Sounds fun huh? 😉

Well, no, not at the time. It’s NOT fun. Not one freaking bit of fun.

But who you become as you go through the pain of growth makes it worth every agony.

It’s the JOURNEY that shapes you. It’s by being tested that you find out what you are made of. It’s in the ‘going through hell’ that you develop strength that you never though you had in you.

And would I do it all again? YES. A thousand times over. I’d rather NOT. But I will.

Show me one successful person who HASN’T got their own ‘hell’ story.

And that’s what sorts out the wannabes from those that are COMMITTED TO THEMSELVES, that essence, that thing, that reason for BEING, that they cannot and will not ignore and they have not choice but to follow their heart to live the life that they want and do the work that they are here to do.

So yes, it’s SIMPLE. But at times it’s hard.

Nothing ever worth having or achieving is just handed to you on a plate.

The rewards and satisfaction are in EARNING what you have, and I’m not just talking about money here (though yes, there’s a huge satisfaction in YOUR OWN money), I’m taking the MINDSET you develop and have when you go through that journey. You mindset is EVERYTHING; in ANY area of life.

I’m not here to help everyone. I can’t. And I won’t. I will only help the people who know that they are destined to be, do and have more and who need some help. Not in a ‘rescue-me’ way, but in an EMPOWERMENT way.

If you have ambitions to make your OWN WAY in this world by doing what you LOVE , creating freedom and the money that you want and you would like my help, then you need to check my programme below, now.
