Financial Market Turmoil

What would you pay NOW to have seen ‘this coming’?

Hmmm…. Interesting.

Even though I blogged about recent market volatility just last week and published a warning a year ago

I venture to guess most people discounted those “predictions” as fear mongering, contrarian thinking or even “conspiracy theory advocacy”… because that’s what the herd does, that’s why bubbles exist and why they pop.

My clients are a calm lot today and will sleep well tonight knowing they’re totally covered. They saw this coming and got prepared. But it’s not yet over, this is just the beginning…

No, no, no… Not the end of the world…

But the beginning of the setup to the single most incredible opportunity we will have to make a fortune. But I am getting ahead of myself.

The point is – imagine if you saw this coming,

  • What would you have done to protect yourself and your business?
  • Would you have taken advantage of it?
  • How would you have taken advantage of a market downturn?

That’s what it’s like to be a client of mine – I call it 20/20 Foresight: Knowing what’s going to happen BEFORE it happens.

If you want to make the most of what’s going to happen next…

Contact us and we’ll let you know if you qualify to become a client.

 

What’s Coming

I have a special vocabulary I have created to define Exponential Mindset Thinking principles and concepts. One of the most powerful is 20/20 Foresight – the ability to create the ultimate future (destiny) you desire.

Admittedly it’s easier said than done, but not because the future is hard to predict, but because of the inertia you have that PREVENTS you from adapting to that (new) future which is why smart business people fail.

Please re-read that last sentence again…

I have been teaching this principle for some time and even blogged about it. In one blog post I explained the 20/20 Foresight – Strategic Planning Framework and in another I revealed how our clients are adapting to the impending “future forces”. In my personal coaching and mentoring blog I was much more direct in my prediction for the future.

There is no secret about what I expect to happen – Harry Dent has been promoting his views for some time and even published them in a bestselling book – The Demographic Cliff. After reading several of his books, I attended one of his information workshops in Los Angeles in May 2014 and was convinced that (1) I have to take this seriously and (2) I need to prepare my clients accordingly.

Simply stated, what I am advocating to my clients is that they prepare themselves professionally and personally – this is a lot easier than you would think. If the crash happens, they will be the “last man standing”, if the crash does not happen, they won’t lose anything, they’ll end up with a stronger, more robust business and bullet-proof portfolio. It’s all upside.

To learn what to do, you need to become a client. Contact us and we’ll let you know what to do to protect yourself and your business. If you choose not to become a client, good luck and please let me know how it all works out for you.

I know, don’t you wish you had (1) read this before it happened? and (2) if you did read it, that you had taken it more seriously?

 

 

20/20 Foresight

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to look into a crystal ball and see what the future holds?

20-20 Foresight. Exponential Programs20/20 Foresight might not be THAT precise and accurate, but there are tools, tips and techniques you can use to determine trends and tendencies forecasters and analysts use on a daily basis to predict what’s coming.

Small businesses are notorious for being reactionary rather than proactively aware and ready to face the future. This is partially because owner-managers work IN their business much more than ON their business as well as because they simply are not aware that these tools exist.

Next Saturday, in Melbourne, we are holding a 1-day workshop that will introduce you to the concept of 20/20 Foresight that is synonymous with Exponential Mindset Thinking, leveraging the MasterMind Principle in an interesting and creative way.

There is nothing worse in business than being caught completely unprepared. This workshop will enable you to start developing forecasting and preemptive strategies that will enhance your view of the future to improve the decisions you make today.

Imagine having a copy of a exam, weeks before you have to sit the final?

How differently would you study?
How much less stress would you have?
How would you go about your lectures and study habits?
What would happen to your grades?
Would you enjoy the process more or less?

The same can be true for your business – but only if you know the tools, tips and techniques to acquire 20/20 Foresight…

So if you want 20/20 Foresight, contact us and we’ll help you create the future you want.*

*Oops… Did I forget to mention that once you have an idea of what the future holds, you can actually start to change it?!?!?! Oh well… No use getting into how to do that unless you attend.

What will your legacy be?

Regardless of what you thought of Michael Jackson’s ‘lifestyle’ and peculiarities, his passing leaves us all with the awe of his talent, expression and  ability to entertain across boundaries of colour, race and generations. That brings up the question – what will your legacy be? What are you creating that will be left behind when you depart this world/existence/reality?

What will YOUR legacy be?

What will YOUR legacy be?

The reason this is important to think about now is because the NEW YEAR is upon us in a few days…

When would NOW be a good time to start planning to make 2010 You Best Year Ever? Hmmm

When you’re in business, you can create an on-going legacy, one that survives you – most don’t achieve that goal – but you can, if you PLAN FOR IT.

Start by THINKING ABOUT IT…
