Stepping Up Update

WOW!!! What a day at the STEP UP event.  It was a fantastic day of sharing and opening of both hearts and minds.

We all STEPPED UP to make the day extremely worthwhile. It is my hope that you have all gone away with renewed vitality and actions that you will implement immediately to move your life forward.

The discussions identified procrastination and the fear to take that STEP UP into the unknown as blocks to success. All of us need mentoring to take these steps. The time of self-doubt has to end, but sometimes we need someone to hold our hand and guide us during the STEPPING UP into the unknown. This was my desire from the day. I want you to have the confidence in me to help you take that STEP.

We had excellent contributions from Karen who talked about the importance of Leadership. It does not matter at what level we are in an organisation or the number of employees in our business, we are all Leaders. The simple lessons and steps to good leadership presented by Karen should be applied to your daily life. Karen is always available to help you with the STEPS to become an excellent Leader in your own right. You have met her now, so take advantage of this acquaintance and STEP UP to be that Leader you are capable of being. Get Karen’s Book Here

No business can survive or flourish without strong customer sale closing STEPS. We all know how hard it is to find customers, never mind close a sale at the price we need to achieve. Simone gave some excellent STEP by STEP ways to overcome revenue inertia in your business. If you were one of the people who purchased his book, I am sure you will find it an excellent guide to significant increases in your own sales. Simone is a great ambassador for these techniques. The CHIT CHAT principle action groups were a great fun way of reinforcing those lessons advocated by Simone. There is no better way to practice these techniques than with a mentor and to receive constructive criticism in return. Get Simone Book Here:

Last but not least, you heard Nigel give an enlightening insight into the world of technology and the positive impact it can have on your business. Nigel has real practical experience and lives what he preaches. He has been kind enough to provide links to useful information to help you STEP UP in technology.

Often learning can be too serious and it can be hard to hear the messages being spoken. Just one of the ways I like to highlight how important clear communication can be is the drawing game. I thought Simone made an excellent attempt at communicating a description of what he was seeing, but even an experienced presenter such has Simone showed us all what we are trying to say in not always heard that same way by all of us.

The STEP UP event is just the start of your journey into making your dreams become realities. I have mentored many people into moving on to the path their heart and mind desires. The wisdom I can bestow on you in my mentoring sessions is not just for the now. They are practices and techniques that you will use to make a success of your whole life going forward.

I love my “Money Game” workshops. They are the corner stone to the journey to understanding what greatness you can truly achieve given the appropriate resources. Never doubt your skills; young Emmanuel (9 years) made us all realise that in children, you truly know yourself. I began the day guiding you on the first STEPS to knowing yourself. Without knowing yourself it is impossible to start the critical path to enabling your success.

The date for the next STEP is fixed for 28Th November 2015. Join our Group on Facebook, keep the keep the learning active.

Until next time, God bless

Elephants don’t do ballet

Some of us with children will have read the very popular book, “Elephants Don’t Do Ballet”. To those who do not know, the story goes as follows:

When the young Esmeralda the elephant wanted to be a ballerina, her Mummy’s not so sure…after all, elephants don’t do ballet! But Esmeralda was very sure of what she wants, and she joins a ballet class. While the little ballerinas twirl, Esmeralda gets her trunk in a tangle, and when they learn jumps, she only manages a crash landing! But, as Esmeralda triumphantly goes on to prove, elephants can do ballet!

When you were young and dreaming of the life ahead of you, how many of us were sent down the route of someone else’s career choice?

During my career as a business mentor, I have been privileged to work with people of different races, backgrounds and cultures. Each person brings with them their own individual life experiences and desires.

We are all ambitious. We all strive for a bigger role in life. We all want success. We want to make a difference. We want to make other people’s lives better. We want to make our own lives better.

Yet ultimately, despite our efforts and accomplishments, we often lack a true sense of professional fulfilment.

The day I will be spending with you is about taking a very personal look at how you define success in your heart of hearts and then finding your path to get there.

To do that, you must step back to STEP UP and reassess you.

We will seize control. Doing this requires you to take a fresh look at you.

  • Know yourself
  • Excel at critical tasks
  • Demonstrate character and leadership


I am truly excited to share this day with you. Being is orchestrated and every minute you spend will take you on the journey to transformation. You are not alone. The day will surround you with people with a similar vision in their hearts.

I am going to open and expand your horizons. Help you make your dreams become your realities.

The event is on SATURDAY, 25th JULY in LONDON. It begins at 10:00 and finishes at 17:00 at Park Plaza, Waterloo. I promise you a rewarding and hopefully life changing experience. Visit to book a ticket.

Thank you, many blessings
