On our recent trip to Mauritius I experienced a massive eye opener and thought I’d share some of my insight in the video below.
Having the flexibility and freedom has allowed us to pack our bags and breath in new cultures of Mauritius:)
I’m talking about freedom in a very broad sense. Doing work for someone else, having a job or loving someone has nothing to do with freedom.
Freedom is NOT doing whatever the heart desires right now. Freedom is the possibility of doing whatever the heart desires right now. Freedom is the possibility of breaking free, if and when needed. Freedom is the confidence of not being chained in an unhappy state.
Pursuit of freedom is to continuously ensure that one is not relenting control of life to any person or any sort of circumstances.
No one but you has any right on your life.
I’m so blessed to have stumbled across an education that allows me to live my life of freedom!
Are you familiar with bestselling author Robert Kiyosaki?
If not, I suggest you start off by pick up a copy of his book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’
After reading this book my mindset changed forever and I started taking the actions that has given me freedom to this present day.
Financial Freedom to write my own pay cheque for life.
Time Freedom to do what I want when I want.
Freedom to never have to answer to a boss again!
After all isn’t freedom something that we are all chasing?
Well this past weekend I had the pleasure of being able to attend a live event held by the man himself.
So I shot a video about my experience of the event.
Here are some of my key takeaways:
- Entrepreneurship isn’t easy and the sad truth is that many will never make it. The bigger your fighting Spirit the better your chances.
- Building a successful business is a team sport. Don’t be a jack of all trades and hire professionals who can do the job better than you.
FOCUS! Follow One Course Until Successful.. Too many people jump from opportunity to opportunity without giving it a red hot crack!
You get punished in school for failing, but in real life failing is all apart of the process. The more you fail and learn from your mistakes, the more you will succeed.
Australia has the best coffee in the world 🙂 (According to Robert & Kim Kiyosaki). Starbucks will never take off down under.
There are 101 other takeaways but you can watch the video I shot after attending the event.
And If you ever get the chance to see him live make sure you do so!
Its an experience of a lifetime 🙂
Keep fighting for your freedom!
Have a great day

There is a difference between how rich people and average people choose to get paid.
Average people choose to get paid based on time — on a steady salary or hourly rate — while rich people generally own their own businesses, work on commission, or choose stock options and profit sharing over higher salaries.
As a former accountant, I was living an average life…
I was choosing to get paid based on time. What is even worse is that my employer was charging me out 10 times more than I was actually getting paid (i.e I was getting paid $25/hr while my company charged me out at $250/hr).
Despite the long hours, I couldn’t choose how much I was worth to the company. I mean I couldn’t just determine how much I’d like to be paid each month?
The lesson I learned from working my 9 to 5 was that if you work for money, you give the power to your employer. If money works for you, you keep the power and control it.
Working for money is the easier path — it’s what we’re taught in school (how to write a résumé, get a job, and work hard).
Having your money work for you — by starting an internet based business, being your own boss, and investing in yourself — requires calculated risk and a level of comfort with uncertainty.
The good news is that you can greatly reduce this risk by following a proven step-by-step blueprint. That is exactly what I did two years ago when I chose to join The Six Figure Mentors.
They give you all the training, tools and even products to sell (if you don’t have any of your own products) required to create a very successful internet based business that get’s money working for you!
No previous online experience is required… the only requirement is a positive attitude and the desire for something more.
So, if your interested in learning how to make money work for you rather than being forever controlled by your employer then I highly recommend you submit an application to the SFM today by clicking this link.
Because being average is boring (like being an accountant!)
Stay true to yourself
Wanna know what the best business plan is?
It isn’t the plan itself…It’s all about execution…
The best business plan in the world will always be a track record of execution.
Below I shot a video about the importance of having a successful track record of execution, which is much more important than the business plan itself.
When Gerard and I partnered together we created a business plan, but no-one was even interested looking at it because we were unseasoned: We had no money, no track record, no races entered, no finishes, and no races won.
However as our business grew, something miraculous happened. The more success we had the more people would approach us to see whether they could have the same kind of business plan to success.
As we enter new business opportunities, potential investors will overlook the business plan to see whether we have a good track record executing previous plans.
Although you can give someone the perfect business plan on paper, it all comes down to the execution. Some people succeed and some people don’t.
Be the person who takes the action, does the work, executes the plan and turns their dreams into reality.
More and more opportunities will come your way 🙂
Have a great day!
Ever Wondered What A Laptop Lifestyle Would Look Like?
I’m talking about living a life of flexibility and freedom, being able to write your own pay cheque and run your business from anywhere in the world.
Well over the past 3 weeks, our laptop lifestyle has taken us to South Africa and we have been busy doing incredible things for the first time 🙂
- Shark cage diving with Great White Sharks
- A surprise helicopter ride around Cape Town
- Zip lining through the mountains of Ceres
- Visited Table Mountain (1 of the 7 wonders of nature)
I shot a video of our adventures so far (see video below)
The best part about the trip was being able to spend time with Sandrine’s friends and family.
Especially her granddad who is getting much older but but has still got a great sense of humour and is always cracking jokes 🙂
Even with all the fun we’ve have been having, we’ve still been able to spare some extra time to check our online business that earned us $54,329.95 in January.
Although the money is great, it doesn’t compare to the feeling of waking up everyday, looking forward to the day ahead and helping others change their lives for the better.
It was just over 2 years ago when I came across the Six Figure Mentors and took the plunge of investing in my education and starting my own online business.
Taking the initial risk of leaving my job as a truck driver in search of a better life was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Most people doubted us achieving our dreams, but I believe that anyone with a HARD WORK ETHIC and a big enough WHY, can create their own successful lifestyle business.
So stay strong, keep motivated and persevere until you make all your dreams become a reality 🙂
Keep your dreams alive,
Want to know how to get anything you want?
The answer is quite simple.
Check out my latest video below where I explain a cool concept I learnt from a guy who’s earned hundreds of millions of dollars through reading a book a day.
Applying this basic principle can help you achieve any results you desire, whether it be wanting to build a successful lifestyle business, get six pack abs or create a million dollar company.
*Here’s a hint: It has everything to do with who you surround yourself with.
Hope you enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts
Keeping your passion alive,
