How to Create a Culture of Lateral Thinkers – Part 1

boxed-employee-300x213 “Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress.” – Alfred A. Montapert Today I want to share some simple shifts you can implement in your business to build a team of lateral thinkers, instead of fostering a culture made up of doers. You can’t afford to have staff who look at their work and their life as a series of tasks, and who aren’t expected to solve problems creatively. If you do, then you have people who are playing the game on a lower level, and who will always look to you to provide the higher level strategies for business growth. Not a very sustainable approach.

Business Mastery with Anthony Robbins – Day 4

Hello, everyone. Day Four has just finished. Actually it finished a few hours ago and it’s 2:00 in the morning now. I think it finished around 10:30 or so. Went to dinner with a few of the guys that I’ve met at the Business Mastery, and I must admit a few of these are people I’ve met and formed a relationship with that I’m confident that will be my friends for life. Whether we stay in contact every single day or not, they hold a very special place in my heart, and they’ve helped me grow as a person during the session. And we’ve helped each other make a lot of breakthroughs.

Business Mastery with Anthony Robbins – Day 3

Good morning, everyone. It’s 1:30 in the morning, and I had another awesome day at Business Mastery. I’ve learned a lot today and had a lot of significant breakthroughs. So what am I going to share with you? I’ll go for some of the things that we’ve learned today, but some of the stuff you just need to be there in person, so I really encourage you to go. I know that the cost of Business Mastery—it cost me around, like, $10,000 – is quite significant, but they give you the guarantee that if you don’t feel you can make a million dollars after your first day, they’ll give you a full refund. If you actually execute the stuff that they teach you, it’s well worth over a million dollars, and the friendship from the people you meet and just being around some of these great masters and seeing what they do – it really changes your life and your business life, so I really encourage you guys to go.

Business Mastery with Anthony Robbins – Day 2

Hello, everyone. Speaking from Melbourne. This is the end of Day Two of Business Mastery. It’s 1:22 in the morning. And I actually finished a lot earlier. We started the day at 10am, the first lunch break was at around 5pm, and the event actually finished at 10pm. But today, the main enjoyment I got out of the events is that I met a lot of people that I guess are going to become great friends, or I’ve already become great friends and connected with them, and some of them are going to be helping out with my business as well and taking it to great heights. So I’m really excited about some of these friendships and partnerships that I can carry on for the rest of my life.

Over the next four days, I want to share a lot of the key learnings from each day with you guys, so stay tuned and goodbye.

Why Success is Never Intended

“If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.”

- Laurence J. Peter

As CEO of a company that holds developing successful entrepreneurs as its core business, I spend a lot of time encouraging my team members to think about what success means to them individually. Each person’s vision of success is invariably varied (billionaire, philanthropist, Internet Superhero, to name a few of the replies I’ve heard), however, all are rooted in the basic dictionary definition of “success”: The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

Top Ten Pitfalls to Avoid at Canton Fair

First published in Power Retail. 20111024_122654-1024x768 Canton Fair is the world’s largest trade show, held twice a year in Guangzhou, China. If you have a retail business, or considering starting one up, a visit to the fair offers an unparalleled opportunity to source excellent products at competitive prices.

However, the event attracts 22,000 exhibitors and 165,000 buyers, making it easy to get overwhelmed. This list of Canton Fair “don’ts” will help you sidestep potential pitfalls and get the most out of your experience. Read More »
