Don’t do as I do – Do as I tell you! I think that should be my mantra right now. On a daily basis I am telling students at my Elite Tigers Group what actions they should be taking to drive their businesses forward – and one of them is to write a daily blog post! Well, lo and behold, when did I last write one? April 2019!
So, I thought I had better finally put that right. A lot has happened since then, most of it pretty good from a business point of view, and most of it exactly the reverse from a world and planet point of view.
On the business front I started this blog when I was close to the start of my journey with John Thornhill’s Partnership To Success programme. Since I last posted I have released more than 25 of my own digital products and now see typical monthly revenues in my business of over $20k per month and so it’s fair to say that things have moved on quite a bit.
Away from business, the photo above is from Hibernian FC, my adopted club in Scotland. This season I have made the worst value ever corporate season ticket purchase, but I don’t mind. The Capital Club membership includes full hospitality with food and drink and an executive seat at all home games this season, but of course we haven’t been allowed in. The only benefit has been live streaming of the home games via a video link. Plus earlier in the season we were actually allowed in for some hospitality when the team were playing away. So, we would go to Easter Road (Hibs ground) and enjoy a meal while we watched a big screen live broadcast of the away match, which was quite enjoyable. But this only lasted for a few games. First the Scottish government said that the sound on televisions had to be muted in hospitality settings, which sort of took most of the enjoyment out of it, and then of course hospitality was shut down completely.
However, my expensive season ticket helps the club survive in these tough times so I don’t mind. I even purchased a normal season ticket at my most local club to my house, Dunfermline Athletic FC, to help them out through the season as well. At the time of writing there is very little chance of being able to see a match at either stadium this season, except maybe in late April or May if things go really well.
The point is that by being successful you can support local causes that are close to your heart. Making money doesn’t have to be all about material things for yourself, although I have to say I was also quite happy to take delivery of a brand new E Class Black Mercedes last summer, something I could never have imagined as recently as a couple of years ago that I would ever have been in a position to afford.
Anyway, that’s enough for now. Hopefully I won’t leave it almost 2 years to the next post!
