Announcing something new

Today I’m announcing something new. It’s called LAUNCH! Inside Track and it’s all about how to create something super-successful and market it in radically new ways to make it a smash hit – whether that thing is a book, a product, a service, an app, or your own coaching/therapy/freelance/consultancy career. And you’re going to learn all that while looking over my shoulder […]

How would you like to be a Digital Nomad?

I’ve spent all this month in Bali, having some time off, giving some talks, and connecting with the Digital Nomad community – a global movement of people who have designed their life to be location independent. It’s never been easier to create a business you can run from a laptop anywhere in the world. And a lot […]

“The shortest answer is doing the thing”

What should you dedicate your life to? What’s your passion? Which of your ideas will really pay off? Which one can actually make money? Do you actually have the skills or even the confidence to pull it off? These are the kind of questions that can seize us when we’re trying to choose something new to start. Sometimes they […]

Here’s the formula for getting paid to do what you love

What if there was a formula for getting paid to do what you love? Well I reckon I’ve cracked it. Drawing on all my work with people over the last decade I came up with the Playcheque Formula. The formula has just 4 elements and once you’ve unlocked it you too can get paid to do something you love. […]

Playing from your heart

Still hunting for your passion? Read this…

Liz Gilbert, author of the international bestseller Eat, Pray, Love spoke at Oprah’s “The Life You Want Weekend” recently and said something rather controversial about finding your passion: “I’m going to say something really weird and it’s going to surprise you… I’m going to speak out for a second against passion.” “You spend a lot of your life […]

“You’ll never amount to much”

“You’ll never amount to much” – ever heard that message in your life? You might have heard a version of it from a school teacher or careers counsellor who suggested you lower your expectations. You may even have picked up a hint of it from your friends or family – don’t expect too much, don’t […]

What was your pivotal moment?

This week I ran a live online training with over 300 people all over the world and we talked about the perils of The Job which can drive you crazy: the bad boss the nightmare colleague the miserable office the tedious commute and worse… You might put up with it all for many years until… […]

Ditch the boring people!

I had some pretty cool jobs in my former career – special effects developer, European internet consultant, and others. And then I joined a well known global corporation but while the job sounded very impressive I wasn’t happy. Part of the problem was the people. Nothing wrong with them, many of them were very smart.
