The Sky’s The Limit For You

The Sky’s The Limit For You

  The sky’s the limit ladies. ok so I may or may not be indulging in a glass of French Champagne whilst overlooking the best view Sydney has to offer as I type this but hell, my best work has stemmed from celebrating my wins over a glass of France’s finest so let’s move on shall we? For the record I celebrate every freaking win this way, it’s a special moment in time that I hold just for me as I come to grips (at least momentarily) with what I’ve just accomplished. Typically my head is down and my bum is up while I’m in Making Shit Happen mode and it’s only when I have a moment to breathe and take in my surroundings (coz let’s be honest, this shit does not happen at home) that I’m able to appreciate that I’ve accomplished my latest goal. A big one. One I only half believed I could achieve. My own reflection aside here’s what I’m thinking about as I sit here drinking in the view.. YOU! I’m thinking of you and the fact that you haven’t yet “made it” on your terms. I’m not feeling sorry for you but I am championing you as we speak. I’m thinking of all of the things that are holding you back and I want to tell you that the biggest thing holding you back is you and that you need to get out of your own way so you can have this too. “THIS” is your personal version of my success. I was dressed up like a CEO when I worked in the...
The Art of NOT F@#king Up Your Hard Earned Success.

The Art of NOT F@#king Up Your Hard Earned Success.

Here’s the thing no-one tells you about success. When it arrives it brings with it a can of worms you’re unprepared for. Sure, there’s the momentary euphoria of having “made it”, of having finally achieved what you’d been working so hard to achieve but far too often the feeling of euphoria short lived. Despite the many hours you’ve probably spent imagining your success when it hits sometimes it can take a little while for everything else to catch up. I guess it’s not too dissimilar to someone who’s had lap band surgery without the psychological counselling required to come to grips with the fact that EVERYTHING surrounding their relationship with food has to change including socially (a friend told me the story of a relative of hers who blended her entire Christmas Day meal into a smoothie and freaked everyone out as she sat at the table drinking it though a straw), Had they been prepared psychologically for the change I’m sure adjustment and acceptance would have been less traumatic. Don’t get me wrong I am NOT for a second suggesting success is traumatic, in fact it’s the most amazing feeling in the world. At the guts of it what I want to tell you is that success doesn’t automatically correct your mental and emotional crap, in fact it can make it scream louder for a time because the risk to what you have is now greater than it was before. Another analogy (stay with me) is bodybuilding, I recently attended a training camp with World Champ Nicole Wilkins and she voiced what I already knew to be true,...
5 Lessons I learned taking my business to the next level.

5 Lessons I learned taking my business to the next level.

Deciding to step away from a brand I’d lovingly created (and felt immense pride in) in favour of launching myself into the unchartered waters of launching a high-end mastermind was a huge leap of faith but every cell in my body screamed “you have to do this”….and so I did. What lay before me was definitely something I’d dreamed of (and my gut told me was possible) but as most of us are, I’m a highly optimistic entrepreneur and in my lifetime had set MANY epic goals that didn’t quite come to fruition the way I’d planned; at gut level I “believed” but there was also a huge element of SHOW ME THE MONEY. The proof of success in business is not in the pudding but in bringing in the big bucks. As I begin this post I’m sitting on the airstrip at Melbourne Airport waiting to fly to Sydney to launch The Art Of Kicking Ass Elegantly in Sydney. I’m excited but I’d be lying if I said I was fearless in the face of this launch, you just never know what you’re going to get until you try so on the eve of my launch I’m confident, my gut is happy and I feel good about this next step in my business. However…..I have a Plan B, C D and, well as many plans as I need to make this thing a success (whatever that turns out to be in this instance). From the outside looking in the success of others always looks easy but we’re both smart enough to know that this is simply the highlight...
