    your mind
    is composed of the most remarkable material yet discovered in the universe.
    But it's a lump of porridge with a discipline problem. With your dreams, goals,
    hopes and wants in the balance; with your business, your brand, your prosperity at play,
    what is the state of your THINKING right now?

    You are not separated from your goals by a number of years.
    You are separated from your goals by a number of actions.

    The working classes are taught
    One hour pushing a wheelbarrow means one coin.
    They equate hours worked to coins earned.
    And this one idea alone keeps them locked in generational cycles of poverty.


Let’s discuss the pursuit of excellence and the growth of your brand.
