After undertaking much philanthropic and not-for-profit project work in 2012, I made a decision at the beginning of this year:
2013 would be all about Prosperity – not just for me, but for everyone my projects touch going forward
I realised that my life has been all about money and wealth creation (or how to thrive despite the loss of it!) for as long as I can remember.
From growing up above my Dad’s shop in Chelmsford, Essex then a 7 year training in accountancy which lead me to create my first business Red Letter Days at the age of 24.
I took that business from nothing, literally on a shoestring budget, and grew it into a £multi-million turnover market leading brand.
That success brought with it awards plus TV fame as the star in the first two series of BBCTV’s now cult business show Dragons’ Den.
When I lost Red Letter Days to my fellow Dragons’ Den stars Peter and Theo 16 years later (we were forced into administration by Barclays Bank even though we had £3.3 million cash at bank), I experienced the tide going out when it came to my personal wealth – but ironically those years taught me an immense amount about wealth creation!
I found that there was a tremendous amount of Prosperity to be generated through Adversity – via my 2008 book Business Nightmares, the many hundreds of talks I have given to business audiences, the thousands of entrepreneurs I have mentored on their business journey and my most popular mentoring programme ever Business Alchemy. Millions of people are currently teetering on the edge of financial meltdown and whole countries are bankrupt – yet I believe it is still possible to develop prosperity consciousness no matter how much money you have or haven’t got.
For me, Prosperity is much more than just making money…
It is about being in FLOW - able to attract new wealth and opportunities to you, even when you have experienced a complete financial wipeout or are starting with nothing
It is about FULFILLMENT - doing amazing work in the world which creates great value for everyone (and not at the expense of others – which is the old paradigm way of doing business)
Finally, and most importantly, it is about FREEDOM – to have the choice which projects to devote your energy to, to be able to relinquish jobs or contracts which no longer resonate with you, to walk away from situations, people and clients who are out of integrity with your own values. I am a great believer that every single person can generate revenue streams from doing the things that they love, rather than being chained to work they hate!
