I was much taken by the words of Earl Nightingale on this meme as it fleeted past me on Facebook on Monday: “A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.” Noticing and studying this message made me realise I had been putting my focus on all the wrong things. When it comes to my clients, my attitude is great and I encourage a great attitude in them too and I see them manifesting all sorts […]
Yesterday I ran this year’s first Cashflow 101 game for my clients. It turned into a beautiful sunny day which was just as well as we were playing in my garden office. I have written before how powerful these games are for all concerned, including for myself as banker/facilitator. I absolutely know that this is the most powerful work I do as a coach and mentor in the area of money and wealth creation and yesterday’s main learning for all of us seemed to be around being happy to receive. All the players were women, this may be irrelevant, but […]
Doing the tidying up after Friday’s Cashflow 101 game in The Abundance Shed, packing away the money and rats and cheeses, pondering players’ dreams and their different learning styles, I find myself wondering about my facilitation style. I think I am pretty gifted at it, sorry to be so immodest, but I think you know when you are been doing something for a very long time whether or not you are any good at that. To what do I attribute that? You cannot play the game as well as teach and be the banker, there is just too much going […]
I came across this article on the Rich Dad website which reminds us how creating systems in our businesses can free us to be the best leader, innovator and entrepreneur we can, so that we can work less in our business and more on it. Creating Systems for Small Business By Suzi Dafnis If you answer your own email, take your own phone calls, issue your own refunds, handle your own customer service – you could be killing the growth of your business! A friend once said to me: If you need to do something more than once, then create […]
My best friend from school, Leslie Scott, invented Jenga. You have probably played it, you will almost certainly have heard about it. I was Leslie’s accountant and you can read that story in Leslie’s book called About Jenga. Leslie loves games. Generally, I hate them but we don’t let it spoil our friendship! I do love Jenga obviously, its fun. And another one of hers is Ex Libris and I enjoy this even more and its for you especially if you love books and words. Check out Leslie’s Oxford Games site for Ex Libris. Educationalists would, I am sure, tell me about […]
Yesterday was one of my regular Cashflow games, enhanced by a visit from Yvonne on holiday from her B&B in Champagne. Yvonne has a radical way of playing the game which she learned at a property group when she was investing and living in Manchester a while back. We’d heard about her way and we wanted to try it. We all got out of the Rat Race following her system, perhaps faster than usual, but opinions and emotions were mixed. So for our second game we played our more orthodox way, closer to the rules, and still achieved great, fast […]

"Money's nothing; its just a way of keeping score" is a favourite quote of mine attributed to all and sundry, including Trump. It doesnt matter who said it, and you can imagine it tripping lightly off the tongue of someone who has plenty of it, can't you?
