A Man Walks Into A Bar...

An entrepreneur's (short) story

A Man Walks Into A Bar...


It was 3.00 pm on a cold and wet Wednesday afternoon when Jake walked into the bar. The place was quiet apart from the TV on the wall which was tuned to the local sports station. He sat on a stool at the far end and ordered a beer.

Dave, the barman, who was a pretty good judge of people, could sense the anxiety within Jake.

Build Your Skyscraper Mindset

Why "thick wall" thinking is limiting your potential

Build Your Skyscraper Mindset

In building a 20/20 Business, a structure that delivers you total control and ultimate freedom, you must first build and secure your core foundations of leadership, team, finance, operations and marketing & sales. You need to drive them deep until they’re resting on solid bedrock.

Don't Feed Your Own Business "Monster"

Don't Feed Your Own Business

Unfortunately, most people who start, buy or inherit their own business will end up as an exhausted failure rather than the successful developer of their own “freedom” machine. Most have been struck with an entrepreneurial seizure - there’s the manager who takes redundancy and starts a consultancy business, the labourer who quits to become a contractor or a cook who opens her own restaurant.

How Heavy Is Your Glass?

How Heavy Is Your Glass?


One factor that impacts on our ability to "achieve" is stress and overwhelm.

Look at the picture and guess how heavy the glass of water is?

Would it surprise you to know that the absolute weight doesn’t matter? It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute it’s not a problem. Hold it for an hour and my arm will start to ache. Hold it for a day amd my arm will feel numb and paralysed.

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.
Winston S. Churchill
