Below is the content of the handbook

As it is with all my work, what I say in the handbook is important, yet nowhere near as important as what you hear yourself say to yourself, and then do your own unique work.

At the start of 2015 it became clear on the road ahead for my business we were facing some serious challenges. We had just purchased the Budget franchise and were experiencing inconsistent business results, some big rental agency changes, and some poor staff attitudes had crept in.

I had heard Ian speak at a function in 2014 and I had been impressed with the message of his talk that day. Ian has worked as a mentor to me for the last 14 months. He's also run sessions and worked 1:1 with my staff.

We've made several small shifts in how we conduct our business that have made a significant difference with my key people, how we work, and to our results. We're continuing the upward journey through my membership in Ian's master-mind group.

The world is full of powerful strategies to improve the bottom line and get better business results, but some of them come at a cost in terms of our well-being, relationships and personal life in general.

Some people think that’s a price worth paying and others don’t.

This 3 components package is all about helping you to identify and implement proven principles in your own best way that mean you're achieving your best business results without sacrificing anything that’s precious in your personal life.

Obtain this package by working with me personally, or through participating in a designated online or in person event. The 1 minute 57 seconds video above left is a summary of how this works.

The next designated events are overviewed and linked to here.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ian for close to two years in one-on-one and group settings. Ian’s unconventional in his approach (refreshing!) but works to a brilliantly simple yet powerful philosophy that centres around our experiences as human beings (shocking I know!!). He’s a purpose and values-driven mentor and team builder who I’d recommend to anyone.

I participated in an engaging and entertaining seminar presented by Ian and was inspired to go further. Now that I have undertaken and benefited from Ian’s intensive mentoring program, his teachings have become integral to the success of my personal and business life.
