You're checking us out - that's good!
In corporate speak, we'd call that doing your due diligence.
So who are we exactly?
We’ve both had broken marriages, gone through breast cancer and rounds of chemotherapy. Nothing like coming face to face with your own mortality to make you sit up and take a serious look at your life!
Revaluating, regrouping and starting from scratch is nothing new for us.
We know from first hand experience what it is to struggle to make ends meet, to have crippling debts.
We understanding lying awake at night wondering how on earth you are going to find enough money to pay the bills, keep your family and build your business.
Now here's the thing.......both of us spent years in the rat race.
Making and raising millions for other people. We're good at what we do - very good!
10 years ago we decided to work for ourselves
Sounds like a dream. The reality was......it was a struggle, no bed of roses.
We grappled with the same issues facing every small business owner.
It’s not been an easy ride, we’ve made mistakes along the way – plenty of them!
Each challenge is a learning curve
What we learnt is the secret to unlocking small business success lies in discovering the formula that works. Yep, sounds like common sense. Right?
After several (we've lost count of how many) false starts, we managed to unlock the secret and we’ve turned it into our business.
We already had the skills. We’d used them for other people. We made them lots of money, but we just did not know how to translate that into a business model for us.
Were we being too pushy? Too timid? We asked ourselves these questions over and over.
Like many other small business owners, we spent money, time and energy on products and programs which were useless.
But then, the lightbulb went on!
Our "Ah Ha" moment came when we realised that between us we are a unique animal.
Combining our real life sales and marketing experience as a tandem team makes us a very rare beast.
We decided to toss out the ‘guru’s’ and do it our way.
We've never looked back! Our business today concentrates on offering solutions by teaching and helping others to connect, convert and sell while also being true to our core values.
Fly like a dragon...
