2 Swedish blondes and 3 business lessons

On my way home from work yesterday I was sitting at the lights waiting for green. At the busy City lights we get windscreen washers. When one comes your way you have two options; 1.To avoid eye contact and hope they walk straight past you. 2.To let them clean your windscreen, hope they don’t scratch…

Red pill or blue pill?

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the…

Get paid for done

This week I’ve been filming the last few videos to the new Kettlebell Supremacy Level 1 & 2 Certifications. With multiple projects running simultaneously it’s taken far longer than I’d hoped, and I’ve learned many valuable lessons along the way. Here’s 3 of the biggest… 1. Ideas without execution are just ideas. At the end…

Buying a Fitness First franchise?

Yesterday I was having a chat with a long time friend of mine. He recently certified as a personal trainer and was asking my advice on buying a Fitness First franchise. Now… before I get started – I have nothing against Fitness First. In the last few years they’ve done a great job in transforming…

Are you hauling buckets or building a pipeline?

There’s an old parable about two brothers called Pabla and Bruno. The brothers were tasked with bringing water to the town by the rest of the villagers where they would be paid 0.25 cents per bucket. Pablo went to work immediately, hauling two buckets of water from the lake, down the hill and into the…

What is your mission?

Last night I watched the movie ‘Steve Jobs’. Man… he was one focused dude, this guy was on a mission to change the World. Which got me thinking about my own mission. Till recently I thought mission statements were a bunch of BS made up by corporate executives to make themselves look smart. Now… I’m…

Acres of diamonds

This morning whilst driving to work I was listening to self-help legend Earl Nightingale. Every few months I tune into his audio program ‘Leading The Field’ to get some motivation, inspiration and new ideas. Today he was telling his acres of diamonds story. The story is about a South African farmer who hears tales of…

Make the skeleton dance

On Saturday I was having a chat with one of my clients, he told me he was going to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras that night. I made an off the cuff joke about him having his outfit ready (he’s straight – but just prefers the gay clubbing scene). We both had a quick…

Drive a stake through the energy vampire’s heart

Every now and then I get an energy vampire in my boot camp. You know the type, they continually moan that everything is too hard, they question you, interrupt you and whinge about everyone and everything. Oftentimes they sneak into your group as a lone vampire quietly infecting unsuspecting members with their negative poisonous mindset.…
