Are You GDPR Compliant Yet? (URGENT Info If You Build Lists Or Sell Anything Online)

I'm scurrying away, getting all of this sorted at the moment, and you should be too. The deadline to get your online space legally compliant with the new rules is 25 May 2018.

Here's the dry info. If you're very left brain dominant, it might make sense. Have fun! 

Most of us don't have the time to filter through the 350 articles the site lists about GDPR, so I thought I'd give you a blog post as a resource you can skip through in an afternoon instead of needing to turn back time so you have enough time to go through all of this. Sound fair enough?

This is super-complicated legal stuff, so I'm not even going to attempt to explain it. Instead, watch these videos by my epic planning chum Sophie Jewry and GDPR genius Neil Penny and get your ducks in a row or unicorns in formation or whatever...

Good luck!

Do You Really Want to Herd Me?

Are you a cat person or a dog person? Pet preference aside, whether you act more like a dog or cat is at least partially down to when you were born. 

Understanding this won't just help you to squeeze more value out of your marketing budget, and make more sales, it could also save you from brain damage. 


This training is so powerful that I couldn't just throw it on my blog, so I've turned it into a mini course for you, and I'm giving it to you absolutely free! Yep. Grab a pen and some paper, it's go time! A couple of things first:

  1. I'm giving away prizes to my best blog commenters. There is a space for comments inside the course and I'd love to see your comments there, but copy and paste them here too. The course will open in a separate window so you can pop back here easily and paste them in to be in with a chance to win.
  2. Share this around! If you get value from it, I'd love it if you'd use it to help us grow this community. The more of you commenting...

You're Not Selling Info: You're Selling Presence.


 How I'm not charging for access to this is beyond me. This is basically a webinar, so grab some snacks and ban your kids/pups/clowns/unicorns from the room for an hour and take a bunch of notes. This is one of the best bits of training I've ever made available for free. I may not leave it free for long, so share it around, because it's PURE FREAKING GOLD!

In it, you'll learn:

  • How to bring your higher self into your business
  • What to do about privacy concerns online
  • How to create peace on the planet (seriously. Stay on until the end for this.)
  • The nature of coaching, and how to be a kickass coach
  • Things you must ask yourself when choosing a coach
  • How to be able to coach both beginners and celebrities (it is HARD. You have to be committed to taking MASSIVE action on self-development to pull this one off)
  • And much, much more

Put a comment under this post with your big a-ha moments from this video. 

Please share this around on social media. There are easy buttons to do that....

You Are A BADASS At Making Money - Audiobook Review

Hey. So. How's it going? Relationship good? Nice. Well done. Feeling healthy too? Awesomesauce! Now... how's your wallet? Open it up. Any dust fall out? Ah. Yeah. Could be that you have a money mindset ish. No probs. Start from where you are and move forward, right? So today I'm going to give you a couple of resources to help you.

Thing one is that I'm going to give you a super-cool review of an awesome audiobook that will help you with this (and you may even be able to get it for free if you go through my link, so give it a bash.)

The second thing is an interview I did with a former client of mine back in the day, which you'll find under this post (Ray Higdon. Very successful Dude in the Network Marketing world) about this very subject. 

Enjoy. Share if you like. Leave comments with your lightbulb moments. I give away prizes to the best commenters, and the next prize I'm giving away is a ridiculous offer on a course I'm making featuring Brendon Burchard (I know,...

You Can't Be What You Can't See

“I am not what I think I am, and I am not what you think I am. I am what I think you think I am.”

Charles Horton Cooley

When you find someone who inspires you, you need to observe them. Listen to them. Shadow them. Learn about the process. Experience the wisdom of someone who's already walked the path. If you feel that I'm your mentor, it's time to start watching this blog and my social media. See if you can get to the point where you can predict my responses to news events or market shifts. See where you stand related to that. Humble yourself and follow. Most won't. Some will. Those who will find someone to follow intentionally (not 'stalk' which is just weird, but study) experience wisdom at a level that those who skip about never do. 

I pick specific mentors and immerse in their mindset for months or years at a time until I have sucked the marrow from the inspiration in the bones of their manifestations. I buy all their stuff. I hire them as a coach - or hire...

Let's Talk About... Gender ...

So, gender's a big issue right now, huh? Amirite? Yep, hold onto your hats. I'm going there.

First, the stuff I remember from sociology class back in the day.

  • Sex is the biological stuff you were born with. It's the physical definition that decides things like how you pee and your tolerance for different medications. This stuff is important by the way. However you self-identify, you still need to have somewhere on your record that you were born a particular sex so that meds don't kill you. Anti-depressants and anti-psychotic meds are an example. Also, alcohol is metabolised differently depending on the sex you were born. Women have less alcohol dehydrogenase - the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of alcohol. So if you transition from female to male, you're still likely to get liver damage if you drink the same volumes as someone who was born male. Sex is usually, but not always, a binary arrangement. You're male or female. When this is not the case (about one time in every...

Are You Keeping it Real?

Don't keep it real. Let life move through you in dynamic ways. 

  • What could you focus on today?
  • What if your ego just stopped mattering for a day? 
  • What if you did something that makes you nervous because you're not strong there?
  • What if, for the next five minutes, you just sit in gratitude for the fact that you are alive and breathing?
  • Breathe. Be. You are good enough. Now is all that matters right now, and right now, you are everything you need to be.

Are You Passionate Enough?

How passionate are you? Do you just tiptoe around on the surface of life, or do you dive into the depths of the oceans of your passions? When you hear the word 'passion' what comes to mind? Sex? OK. Let's go there because, frankly, it's sad that for most people the only brush they have with passion is between the sheets... if that. But if you've at least got that concept sorted, it gives us a place to start. 

Romance novelists (I'm a bestselling one of those) know how to pull you into the passion of an encounter. And, no, it's not about the smushing together of body parts. That would be porn. Lust. I'm talking passion. WAY more complex of an emotion. So, how do we pull you into a passionate story so much that you utterly believe you've witnessed the hero and heroine 'bumping uglies' even if you haven't? (Spoiler alert - that happened with my novel hundreds of times. You really don't get to see them doing anything X rated... but you'll think you did). The answer is pretty...

Is Sport Going to Give You Dementia?

I'd planned to write something very different today, but when this news appeared in my FB feed, creating a link between TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and dementia, I knew it was important to blog about it.

This issue is important so let's get going...

Before I share my thoughts on this, I'm not a doctor. Do your own research. This is not medical advice. This is what I've learnt from my own research and experience. Ask Google to help. There's been a LOT of research and I didn't want to link away from my site to bajillion research docs, so if you're interested in the specifics you can search. What's here is a summary of the key points.

That being said, let's dive into this subject because if you are, or have been, involved in anything from boxing to team sports you need to understand that while the exercise component of that may have done your body good, the constant blows to the head - particularly in the case of things like boxing, and headers in football (soccer) - may...
