Sometimes I really feel very bad and hesitate to tell a candidate that he/she is a reject. I feel that , our negative feedback may ... Read more

Just Do It, Stop Procrastinating & Take Action

Sometimes you just have to just do it. Whatever it is. Stop prevaricating, stop procrastinating, stop dreaming about it and take action. Most people are really good at procrastinating. We all have our excuses... "It is not important. I have other priorities. I do not have the time. I am a perfectionist so cannot put out substandard work." etc etc. I am sure that you can add your own reasons and excuses for procrastination to this list. I write many articles for people. ...

Are You Sleepwalking Through Your Life?

It is hot today. Really hot. But not as hot as this tip - this is serious; deadly serious... Question: Are you sleepwalking through your life or are you living by design? If you look around, you will see that many people just sleepwalk through their lives. They sleepwalk to work. They sleepwalk with their clients. They sleepwalk in their relationships. They sleepwalk with their kids. They sleepwalk with their fitness. They sleepwalk with their finances. And, after a while, your daily behaviours become ... Read more

Keeping Things Simple

In this video I want to talk about simplicity and the importance of keeping things simple. In my last video about manners, I got an awful lot of responses - the vast majority saying that they do think manners are still really important and several writing me rants about how manners are dying along with other things such as courtesy, dress sense and punctuality. Anyway, there was one email in the middle of all of that which was equally important and it was ... Read more

One Thing That Will Differentiate Your Business

Here are some thoughts on how to differentiate your business... Some people make me laugh... specifically... people teaching selling who cannot sell, people teaching communication who cannot communicate, people teaching leadership who have never led, people teaching how to build a coaching business who never built one themselves, people teaching how to make money on social media who have none, people teaching motivation who are just not motivated, people teaching how to have presence who do not... And that’s just the ... Read more

Taking Responsibility = Business & Sales Success

I was 7 years old and kicking a ball in the playground at primary school in Dodford. I wasn’t much of a footballer but I was going to give it my all; I connected. The ball flew from my foot straight towards the school and – smash! – straight through the window. Without thinking, or even speaking to my little friends, I knew what to do. I ran straight around the school to the front door where I was met by ... Read more
