"You can have both"
Our little tribe is complete, welcome to the world Acre Rae Cross, 22/03/2019, 9.28 pm, weighing 8.8 lb and 51 cm. She is all things magic and we are madly in love. Mum smashed it out of the park as always and is ready for retirement 😉... we’ll see.
Are you a producer or a consumer? Do your kids a favour and teach them how to be on the right side of the counter early in their life. Teach them about creating value, exchanging value and then being rewarded in value. Teach them that if they give more than they take they’ll never run out of things to take. Teach them to listen and teach them to serve. Life rewards those that do!!!! . . . . #dadsadvice #itsyourresponsibility #schoolwontdoit #realworldeducation #businessowner #producernotconsumer #ladyboss #girlboss
Goal setting and achieving is the most common subject I get asked about... it’s become clear to me that the reason most people don’t have goals or don’t commit to them is out of fear of missing the target which, quickly eventuates into the fear of looking a fool. This doesn’t make sense! The concept of having a goal is simply just to create a framework for your decisions to operate within. No different from a sports team having a strategy (decisions) to play a certain way in order to win the game (goal). It doesn’t mean they always score but the fact that there is a goal at the other end is what creates the framework of play. Your goals should do the same thing for you. In fact I believe the role of the goal is simply just to give you energy to play on the attack! When you understand that goal setting in itself can have positive implications on your life you can save the goal hitting for another day... let me show you a simple formula for setting goals for self improvement. Once you have a goal in any area of your life then all you need to do is simply ask yourself “is what I’m thinking, saying and doing in line with my goal?” This question becomes your new framework! It will change your bed time, your mood swings, your diet, your relationship with your partner, your spending habits etc. This self auditing forces you to think before you act and in turn helps you make decisions in line with your intentions. Most people have goals for living a better life, to do that you’ll need to become a better person. Being a better person sometimes comes down to just asking some better questions of yourself - I’ve just given you a ripper 😉 So here’s my thoughts on goals: 1)let go of the fear 2)pick one goal and write it down 3)use the one question and act accordingly👊 Go for it, setting goals is free 🤫 . . . . #goalsetting #lifeadvice #businesstip #entrepreneur #gifttoyou #growthmindset #parentsupport #dadsadvice #businesscoach #energyiseverything #bebetter #dad #businessowner #aussie #speaker
Sometimes you just nail the punchline... on a serious note thanks for having me @faststartclub it was a pleasure to give you the truth about entrepreneurship and letting you know that falling in love with all of it - inclusive of the setbacks, the challenges, the potential isolation is what will get you to your goals. If you only half love anything it will always find a way to leave you. Love it fully and unconditionally and you will see it through. Remember that building a business is not an event, it’s a lifestyle choice and because it was YOUR choice don’t spend to much of your time complaining about it. If you’re lucky, like me you’ll find some legends to share the roller coaster with. . . #speaking #coaching #entrepreneurship #conference #business #brisbane #betheboss #youcan #punchline #nailedit
Get them to laugh and you can get them to listen 😉 . I’ve watched this business @frontiergroupdirect go from one person to 5 and then 5 to 50 in the space of just a couple of years. Their growth has been a direct result of the leadership in place @darylkennedy17 who always provides his people with access to growth personally and professionally. As the saying goes you build the people and the people build the business or as I like to think of it... if you take care of the people the profits will take care of itself. Today we touched on the mechanics of being sustainable in a small marketplace and how to convince today’s you to make great decisions for the future you. Here’s one take away for you: Use a fulfilment forecast before making any decisions, that is to map out how your fulfilment will change over the next 5 days, weeks, years etc. will your fulfilment start high and slowly decline or will it start low and slowly increase over time? An example would be should you read that book or watch the new Netflix series? Pack lunch each day or get the thrill of buying something new at the cafe? Spend that extra money on a new car or invest it? Take that extra shift or hit the town? There is no right or wrong answer for these questions but the longer you map out the decisions there is a clear difference in the fulfilment you will find from that choice. It’s like drinking a redbull or eating a banana - how do you make your choices? And do you ever think about your future self before you decide? Your future needs you to make great decisions today or the future you imagine may elude you.

When you get asked to go into someone else’s business you need to be prepared for anything! I make it pretty clear that I’m not paid to be anyone’s friend but I’m paid by lots of people to be their best friend... the difference? Honesty! That means I have to tell them what’s good for them, not what makes them feel good 🤔 yep, they’re different... and not always received well at least not straight away so just to be safe I often place a guard dog between me and the teams just in case there’s one of those moments 😂 @troopgroupnewcastle @goodman_group thanks for a blast of a few days! . . . #guarddog #businesscoach #consulting #workingdad #entrepreneurlife #feedback #successtip #travel #newcastleaustralia
