Leadership Lessons from Shirtless Dancing Guy

I saw this video about two years ago when Rippln was taking the world by storm – it sums up how movements are created from what can be initially seen as one lone nut. Inspiring, motivational and educational all rolled into one 3 minute video. Transcript: If you’ve learned a lot about leadership and making a movement, then let’s watch a movement happen, start to finish, in under 3 minutes, and dissect some lessons: A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous. But what he’s doing is so simple, it’s almost instructional. This is key. You...

My top two hacks to make you more productive

It was 2013 and things were going great.  Business was the best it has ever been and the ‘buzz’ online was rocking – only one problem, I didn’t have any time freedom.  I spent all my time on the phone, listening to voicemails and supporting the team (and even people outside the group). So I decided to do something what I felt was drastic at the time – I turned off my voicemail. I’ve since been able to leverage technology to help me stay one step ahead of things taking over again. Today we talk about that in a...

We all start from zero

I had a Facebook conversation with someone today who, after saying they were annoyed with themselves for not starting earlier, said it was ‘too late’ for them to start… and even if they did, they’d be starting from zero. 4 years ago I didn’t have a list, I didn’t have ANY knowledge how to sell/market or lead teams.

We ALL start from zero… no matter what the topic… internet marketing… network marketing.. playing the piano. Anything. There will always be...

‘Money doesn’t grow on trees’

How many times have we heard that? But what if it did grow on trees?  What if you could do something once and be paid over, and over, and over again? Let me explain A few weeks ago I supported a Harvest Festival at a local church by bidding on this money plant… already knowing that having live plans in the house only bring more prosperity..  and this one being called a ‘money tree’, well, I just couldn’t resist. We’re often taught, work hard, get good grades, get a good job and you’ll be ok… only to work exchanging your time for money and generally not have anything to show for it at the end of the month.. holding out until the next pay day. The first time I experienced residual income, I didn’t quite believe it. Back in the day of starting this journey I used to sell utilities (my mum still does for me.. AMAZING story to come later this week) and that was my first taste of residual income.  I sold a product to my first customer.. they got an amazing deal.. and each month they pay their bill.. I GET PAID.  It took me an hour to do the signup (takes about 5 minutes these days) and I’ve been paid every month for the last 4 years. When you view money away from the conventional...
