For this week's episode we've got a slightly more personal focus than our usual business growth strategies.

In this episode, I take you inside an Elite Mastermind programme where I give a presentation on the direct route to wealth.

Specifically, I'm talking about personal wealth.

Despite some people having large successful businesses, a surprisingly high percentage of business owners' personal finances are a mess.

So in this episode I discuss:

  • How to clarify your number (The amount you need to be able to retire financially free).
  • The 3 obstacles that place a choke hold on your ability to build wealth and what to do about them.
  • The best way to eliminate any personal debt you may have (it's not what you think).
  • How to clear your home mortgage in record time.
  • Plus much more!

In this special episode of the Business Growth Podcast, we take a sneak peak inside a session I delivered at my recent Success Mastermind meeting on building business and personal wealth.
 
I think that a lot of business owners obsess about business growth from a purely sales perspective, often to the detriment of the businesses stability as well as their own personal wealth.
 
In this episode I share a life changing event that switched me from having a sub 100k net worth to being a millionaire within the space of a year.
 
More importantly, I share the habits and tools that will allow anybody to build a substantial net worth for themselves in whatever industry over time.

Marcus and Paul Fitzgerald run Richmond Oak Conservatories and have been private mastermind members of mine for almost 3 years now.

In that time, they have gone from just working for wages and barely scrapping by to two of the last three quarters of the best in the company’s ten year history. Including one of those quarters where they did more revenue than in the previous 12 months combined.

In this short interview the shares:

This week we have the closest we’ll probably get to having royalty on the Business Growth Podcast.

 

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Penny Power OBE.

 

Penny is a published author, one of the UK’s most inspirational female entrepreneurs and a highly engaging and sought after speaker.

 

Penny founded Ecademy, the UK’s first social network for business, a fore-runner to LinkedIn which followed in 2002 and FaceBook in 2004.

 

She authored her book in 2009 entitled “Know Me, Like Me Follow Me: What Online Social Networking Means for You and Your Business.

 

Penny has been married since 1990 to Thomas Power (our guest last week LINK) and has three children: Hannah born in 1992, Ross in 1994 and TJ in 1997.

 

Penny is no stranger to the media spotlight and regularly speaks at conferences and events and writes for press across the globe.

 

Understanding the small business market has resulted in Penny being sought out to advise small business owners, and the Government on issues relating to the challenges that are critical to small business success.

 

Recently Penny has been speaking and commentating on the changing face of society and the affect the Born Digital Generation should have on the business environment if they are given a chance to enter the commercial world and listened to by business leaders. Penny talks about the asset of Social Capital and how we must seek to grow this as well as our human and financial capital.

 

More recently Penny has been working on an innovative new idea, The Business Café® (LINK) which will bring social networking to the High Street via a network of Business Cafés dedicated to SME’s, run and managed by Young Adults being trained in giving Digital and Fintech Skills to the local business community.

 

This is yet another fascinating conversation on how your business can stand out in the digital age regardless of whether you yourself are a fan of social media or not.

 

This is a wide-ranging and fascinating discussion that will reward repeat listening.

Enjoy the show!
