Ideas: 31 Days of Abundance, Day One

Today I am beginning a series of 31 consecutive blog posts on the topic of Abundance, my own personal abundance. I am having a few days off work this week so I lay in bed this morning with a notebook and pen and brainstormed a list of 31 things I enjoy in abundance in my life. I stopped at 31, though I don’t believe I would need to. I suspect if I’d kept on looking, they’d be there until infinity. Today I am abundant in ideas. As a Creator in the Wealth Dynamics profiling system, ideas are my stock-in-trade and […]

Reviews, Affiliates and Karmic Payback

I am indebted to Trevor who asked me a question on the 30DC this week which I found very provocative, in a good way. Trevor was thinking about some of the same things as me and enabled me to get my thoughts in order. Thanks, Trevor, Old Love. Here’s our starting point: “People love what I do, or at least they say they do. That’s the rub really. I get quite a lot of work from an online directory site where you list your expertise and the more reviews you get (good or bad) the higher your placing in the […]

Labels Schmabels

I suggest to my clients that it would be useful for our work together if I knew their Wealth Dynamics Profile. But I don’t make it compulsory because it’s going to set them back another $97 on top of what they are already paying me. It’s nice to have. It can be a useful guide. We can work out why some tasks are easy as pie and some feel like pushing uphill. Using their profile, I can help them find their flow. As it happens, I am a Creator. Thanks for asking. I am also an INFJ in Myers Briggs. A 7 […]

Balance: Little Word, Big Deal

Lots of conversations with my clients this week have been about achieving balance while self-employed, working for yourself and having a life too. The reason I am being thoughtful about this topic is that this is our second sunny weekend running and it is perhaps easier, in the sunshine, to reflect upon how important it is to get out and about to enjoy it, not least because it is so long since we’ve see it in such quantities. Balance isn’t only about work, rest and play but also about the right mix of activities and interactions with which drain us […]

A Gorgeous, Brilliant and Shiny New Idea For My Client

There’s nothing so gorgeous, brilliant and shiny for a Creator as a great new idea for my business, or for yours. And I have lots of great ideas on my own. But the best ones are those I co-create with my clients and they just come unbidden to either one of us during a call, as happened earlier today. We both found the new idea very gorgeous and spent just a few moments sighing at its beauty before using it as a stepping stone for more goodies falling effortlessly into place. I used to play the piano at school and […]

Every No Takes You Closer To A Yes: MLM, Network Marketing and Sales

In my Money-Making Magic Google Group, we have enjoyed some recent exchanges from members contemplating joining network marketing organisations.  If that’s you too, here are a couple of resources I’d recommend, all of which I have found useful in the general business context as well as MLM, network marketing and sales. The first is Robert Kiyosaki’s book The Business School: For People Who Like Helping People*. I really like the idea of MLM as a way of creating a business. In the USA MLM doesn’t have the slightly dodgy connotations we give it in the UK. Americans regard network marketing […]

Personality Profiling: Nowhere To Hide

There’s been a lively debate over the weekend in my Money-Making Magic Google Group about personality profiling. A new member but a colleague of old asked about Wealth Dynamics which I use with all my clients and we went back on forth on that one which led to discussions about the Enneagram, MBTI and a funky new test, which is free to take, about your Spiritual Personality. In Wealth Dynamics I am a Creator. In MBTI I am an ENFJ. In the Enneagram I am a 7 (although that fluctuates) And in the Spiritual Personality test, the new one, I am […]

Young Entrepreneurs and Bold Achievers in North London

Last night I went up to Holloway at the invitation of Action Jackson to talk to his group of young people who are Bold Achievers, at their monthly Raise Your Game meeting. They are a Mastermind team, keeping each other accountable to their goals each month and the meeting starts with celebrating high points and acknowledging lows. Jackson and Junior have achieved a very nice family feel to the meetings. All are welcome and everyone is very polite, encouraging and supportive to each other. It was a joy to talk to these enthusiastic up-and-coming success stories in the making. They […]

Wealth Dynamics And The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Run, don’t walk, to see the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and let its various pleasures wash over you. I may have to go again on the pleasure front as I was so engaged in watching the different types of Wealth Dynamics profiles on display amongst the characters. Sonny, played by gorgeous doe-eyed Dev Patel, is a Creator, your classic Entrepreneur. “Don’t trouble me with the details” is his favourite saying. Mine too.  He has a vision. Me too. He’s inherited the hotel and wants to restore it its former glory. He has no idea how he’s going to do […]
