Running a six figure business out of two plastic bags was how one of my very curious clients once described me.

The Three M’s of Business

In an entrepreneurial business, we need the 3 M’s; mindset, message and marketing. If any of one of these isn’t right, our business will fail.

It makes me laugh now when I see the ‘experts’ in mindset still recommending out dated ways to achieve success (although sometimes I want to cry with frustration).  Out dated methods are any form of cognitive based strategies like self talk, inspiration, motivation or tactics based on fear statements like ‘If you don’t take action […]
