Change your ways in 90 days...

In this episode we'll be showing you how to achieve more in the first 3 months of the year than most people do in 3 years, a MUCH more effective way than simply saying "I'm going to join the gym this year" or "I want to grow my business in 2017"

We'll look at our strategy for hitting our 20 year plan (yep, TWENTY year plan!), our goals and how we keep ourselves on track.

We cover why willpower doesn't work, John dusts off his Arnold Schwarzeneggar impression, and we get all accountable on you. We'll tell you why SMART goals are actually pretty dumb, and we shoot for the moon with Elon Musk.

How do you grow a small business and still have time for the family?  

Yes, we're talking about that great mythical beast - the Work / Life balance. And we'll tell you why it IS a myth - but don't get too stressed.. we'll show you some tactics and tools to make the "lack of balance" your friend - to accept the imbalance, and actually make it work in your favour.

We talk about see-saws. A lot. Which is a great visual metaphor for an audio podcast. We make sure that you're achieving the right balance of Work AND Life that you actually want.

In this episode John gets to talk about his favourite subject, compounding. We find out about how our use of compounding has grown our business exponentially. So grab a coffee and find out ‘How to Build a Snowman’

There's liberal amounting of hero-worshipping Warren Buffett, including how he spent $2 Million buying a $57,000 house, and we show you how we used compounding to turn £100 into £120,000, £6,500 into half a million, and £500 into £700,000 a year.

We detail how to use this with devastating effect in your business, and how you could create your own pension, which for £300 a month could net you a lump sum of almost £7 million (note the use of the would "could" there - we were playing with Compound Interest Calculators at the time!)

Originally entitled What do you REALLY want,our second podcast looks deeper than that and talks about desires versus wants, the  differences between "that would be nice", and "Hell Yes", that’s what I am having. We’ll find out how desire has fuelled our business, and  how it is essential for you to grow your businesses.

You'll discover that without desire, you're at the whim and mercy of Willpower - and we only have a finite amount of willpower to keep us going. When you're got a burning desire, you'll do whatever is necessary to survive / succeed.

There's also a cautionary tale of what happens when you follow someone else's desire - be warned, it's not pretty!

We also look at how to create desire in your products so you don;t have to give it the hard sell to potential customers.
