Many consultants, or business owners, will be familiar with this question: "So, what is it that you do again?" When meeting people at a networking event it can be difficult to keep track of who does what. This is especially true at events where each attendee gets a chance to do a 'one minute pitch'. You can make it easier on your fellow networkers by having a product name that is both descriptive and simple to remember. I does not matter if you have a range of products or services, it turns out that having a signature product is the best way to become known as a key person of […]

I don't know why I am still surprised when people give me examples of extreme life situations that would horrify anyone. This often happens when I explain, a principal based understanding, of how Thought can have an incredible impact on a person's confidence, happiness, motivation and creativity. I know, with certainty, that any feeling I am experiencing - from moment to moment - is driven by what I'm thinking at that moment. Why would I say that? Here, to quotes a famous advertising campaign, is the science... A 'feeling' is my conscious awareness of changes in my body chemistry (hormones; adrenaline, endorphins, etc.). I can feel a knot in my […]
Do you work on your own? Or, maybe, you're thinking of starting your own business. You can avoid the problems that cause many businesses to fail within 2 to 5 years... The Business Credibility Blueprint.. In 2008, after having coached people about motivation, achievement and presentation skills - for 8 years, I left full-time employment to work for myself. Within a few months, I realised how little I knew about running a business. So, I had to learn very quickly. I started by developing a marketing message. I learnt that marketing has a 'syntax', and that it was not the black art that I feared it was. I learnt how […]
I just sent an email to someone that included the sentence “I believe that you are at an exciting stage in your life - with your new understanding of the ‘inside-out’ nature of reality.” I know some people, who have not experienced the benefits of understanding how the mind works, might question my use of the phrase “exciting stage in your life”. However, I found that my understanding of the ‘Three Principles’, from which we experience life, has increased my levels of productivity and well-being beyond anything I could have imagined. Most of us, whether in a business context or not, are just scratching the surface of the potential of […]
I have noticed that many people who are successful in life seem to be good at public speaking. This is no coincidence really, because the attributes of a good speaker are the same attributes needed for a successful business. The eight attributes of success. Numerous business owners have a useful skill – a valuable skill – that can help a lot of people. They are passionate about communicating the knowledge they have, and love what they do. However, they have a one major difficulty: Not enough potential customers. And to overcome this difficulty, some presentation skills are essential. Marketing yourself, and your ideas, is a key function in any business. […]
I have recently seen one of my favourite musicians, Steve Vai, on YouTube with a video entitled "How to be Successful". During the video, he explains how creating success is really about your 'thinking', and about creating a 'vivid mental representation' of your authentic genuine desire. Whatever you think of his music, his mastery of the guitar is obvious. His talk is focused at playing the guitar, but the underlying principles can be applied to any creative process. Heavy rock jazz might not be ‘your thing’ but even my mother could appreciate the musicianship (on the inserts he seems to be miming to a live recording he did in Argentina). […]
In this video I explain how we sometimes experience stress and stop ourselves from enjoying life. I then point out how little we have to do to enjoy the everyday experience of being alive.
My objective, for this video, is for you to have a new understanding that will impact you every time you stand up in front of large groups of people.
In this video, I detail the process that people go through hundreds of times a day. I then point out what reality consists of.
