Entrepreneurship is tough
I know it from experience.
Anyone embarking on the entrepreneurial journey is faced with fear, anxiety and pain. What many don’t realize, is that the entrepreneurial journey is the greatest teacher, a church of sorts which becomes a spiritual journey to becoming and expressing your self in the world.
I WORK WITH FOUNDERS, WHO HAVE BIG VISIONS, BUT REALIZE THAT THEIR SUCCESS STARTS FROM WITHIN
My role is to simply act as a guide, pointing to places in the psyche which might require reflection. Through this process, there are potentials to see the unseen.
However, this requires authenticity, courage and self reflection.

THE SUCCESS AND ENLIGHTENMENT DELUSION
Achieving success has always been that 'here kitty kitty' / 'carrot dangling just too far from the donkey' dilemma, for most of my life.
To 'arrive' at success was always a multi-dimensional carrot, which I sometimes got oh so very close to hitting, yet almost always missed the mark. I used to even calve up success into matrices of health, career, relationship, fitness, spiritual growth etc and draw lines to graphically represent my development. The illusion of arriving at it, meant some sort of perfection was being sought. It was always a not so far off destination, which always left the stench of never arriving to.
MY DEEPER GUIDE TO PASSION, PURPOSE AND MEANING IN LIFE
I have always been interested in finding meaning and purpose in life. Many motivational speakers will espouse how important it is, and they usually focus on one’s work. And although that has been an important lense to look from, it was only the first in many steps in appreciating my own understanding of meaning and purpose in my life.‘Passion’ as a continual requirement to finding meaning and purpose is a common requirement to most high octane personal development teachers. We will explore this further.
TIPS FOR DISCERNING THE NEW GENERATION OF DIGITAL LIFE GURUS AND DISRUPTORS
I’ve always been the one to give unsolicited advice, and probably had the confidence to ‘project’ that I’ve got life all worked out.
Often when I hit these ‘high’ (like a weed high) notes in life, I get a good ol’ whack from creation, to put me right back into humble pie, and the corresponding awe and wonder of this mystery we call life. I have to constantly remind my already big ego that I really know very little, or nothing about what is really going on in life.
