A comment from a virtual visitor earlier in the week got me thinking. Here’s his comment “Isn’t Entrepreneur a word that is used to describe other people?  As in you couldn’t really say “I am an Entrepreneur”, even if other people labelled you as such?”  Thanks to Michael for that.

Roger Hamilton’s XL Wealth Profile Test

My first favourite thing – Roger Hamilton’s XL Wealth Profile Test. Find your flow. Take the test, find out what it means, learn how it can fast-track you to wealth.   I ask all of my clients to take this test.   Yes, it does cost $100 but it is incredibly helpful.   Entrepreneurs are bombarded with new ideas every day, opportunities round every corner, in the shower, at the wheel of the car, at every networking meeting.   Its both a blessing and a curse. But the results of the Wealth Profile test are thought-provoking and helpful in that they make it […]
