Why business entrepreneur? Why do you want to do it? Just go and... go to your job... five days a week, collect your salary at the end of the week, or the month. Go and do the things that you want to do.

Why do you want become business entrepreneur? There are many challenges. It's not always difficult easy, plain sailing. I did it and I'm glad I did it. I remember... I'll share this with you. The last job I ever had I was just going "stir crazy" being in a place where everybody was just working for the money on a project that would never breathe the life of day. They were so afraid to say what... how they were really feeling. I felt like I was completely redundant in what I was doing. "What was the point of my existence?" That was where I was at. It was an all-time low.

I'll also share with you another moment. I had made it to the "top" of what I had in my mind deemed to be the mountain of my earning capabilities. I was making so much money at that time, and I said my friend at the time, my colleague,

Me: "So is this was it's like when you reach the top? What else is there?"

Colleague: "You're here. That's it!"

I was making a lot of money, and yet I was so unsatisfied with what I was doing. And I thought, "What's the point? I'm just a body. I'm just turning up and physically having to be there and go through the motions."

If this is resonating with you, you understand that you are not alone. I was just going through a treadmill, like that mouse running through that treadmill, going around and round and round. Or you could picture me as the donkey slowly just following the carrot in front of him. And I had had enough. That's where I was at.

It was such... how can I put it? To fulfil what I wanted to do. Going into the unknown was challenging. It was difficult. But step by step as I went through, and developed new skills, and had a clear understanding of what it was... I did have a project that myself and a colleague from Australia we wanted to develop in the United Kingdom. But I had free reign on how to put it together, market the whole thing, test it, refine it, document it, put it out to the market, see that they weren't interested at the beginning. But eventually they came running.

And when you look at the design work that I do in all my slides, I'm taking together an image that has significance with me, and perhaps with you too, and merging it all together with my words. With an image that I see that represents the journey that I've been on. And I've hand-selected, out of my head, each of those characteristics of why I wanted to be a business entrepreneur, and am so glad I did.

Independence: I can pick and choose what I want to do when I want to do.

Self-Direction: I steer my ship. I do feel like I'm putting my hands out there. That I've been able to do the things that I want to do.

Challenges: I don't know about you, but I love challenges. I love the creativity, the freedom, as opposed to being that... having that security, but it's like having chains around your feet. I had a sense of purpose that made me, in front of my family or I would say my children as they were growing up, seeing their father having a sense of direction, purpose and passion in what I was doing. And they could see the end result of what I was doing, and therefore the legacy that comes with it.

I've covered a lot here, but if you can hear in my voice and see in the images and the words that I'm putting in front of you, that is what it meant to me. That's what it should be to you.

So, if this sounds like something that's burning within you, it can be a very lonely world out there, watch my video series. Get in contact me. You've got access to me via Skype if you want to work together and we help propel your business, your ideas, and give it life.
