I have recorded every coaching session I have done over the past 6 years and I will be the first to say that back in the old days I was probably one of the most uncoachable people I knew. Now my coaches and I, I have 5, will say I am the most coachable person. I have a rule when it comes to business I do not take advice from people that are less successful than me and neither should you. One of the big problems I faced 6 years ago is that all my eggs were in one basket and although my coaches kept preaching hedging and diversification, they said if one business is down, your income is not all that effected.

I get so many emails and messages with people telling me how much success they have after attending one of my events, and how I am continuing to change lives all over the world. I wanted to share a few of them below.
After visiting St. Jude’s Children Hospital all day last week, I flew to South Africa and visited the Oncology Department at the University of Pretoria. I expected really bad conditions especially when compared to the amazing facilities at St. Jude’s Children Hospital. I was pleasantly surprised Continue reading
Money does not bring happiness but it does sure bring freedom. All perspective seems to go away when you spend all day at a place like St-Jude Children’s Hospital. I have been on the board of the Eric Trump Foundation for a while now where all proceeds go to this amazing hospital but I actually never made the trip despite all the money I have helped raise. What I saw at the hospital was part WOW at the amazing process they have put together. Continue reading
Another coaching success story. Thabo Eric Mashale was a guy who drove me to the airport with a crappy car, and 1 year after coaching with us he has 5 cars now, runs companies in Cape Town and Johannesburg, owns a beautiful home in Midrand and wants to move in Dainfern. He has his own driver so he can network with his clients and started another business which is a networking group. He is black and did not do it with BEE government. I am so proud of him and he is now a huge success story because of my coaching. Please share this amazing success story. #CoachingWorks #

I get so many emails and messages each day on how to handle betrayal, haters, nay-sayers and non-believers. Let me be the first to tell you that it’s not an easy thing. As Sylvester Stallone told me personally. you have to take that negative energy and sort of turn it into a driving force. People often wonder why I fight back against haters and why do I even give them attention. Well perhaps like Stallone says, I have used that fuel to drive me and not give them the satisfaction of failing. Haters are like bullies and they often either keep hating because no one ever says anything back or they hate because they can’t do it themselves and would rather see you fail because if you do, they feel better about themselves for not succeeding.
The lesson should be
“My coach told me that haters are like crickets. Crickets make a lot of noise; you hear them but you can’t see them. Then, right when you walk by them, they’re quiet. At least the cockroach doesn’t pretend to be anything else. I know where it stands.”
Everyone loves a good entrepreneurial story on the way up, but as soon as you make it, they all want to see you come down. Success brings out jealousy and haters. I don’t know why… it’s already hard enough to live life as it is, why shouldn’t we celebrate those who make it so we can learn together and create more successful stories?
Today should be a great day, my eBook just made #1 in the Business Education section on Amazon. Now, this is not the book about my life story that is coming out in a few months, it’s a book about great business lessons that I think every entrepreneur should have. But my happiness was short lived by haters of course talking about the same crap they speak about all the time. It’s starting to sound like a broken record but for people that don’t know about it, it sounds like sweet new gossip music. Here are the things I am going to clear out once and for all.
1) What’s my real name?
2) Do I own the companies and brands I say I own?
3) The extortion Lawsuits I was a victim of
4) Fake Bad Reviews that competitors or haters post
5) Why is JT Foxx International so much?
So you want to be wealthy… well, join the club. The problem is that everyone wants to get rich, but no one wants to work for it. There is a lot of room at the top when it comes to success, but it’s the bottom that is crowded.
Rule #1 of success is that the less excuses you have, the more successful you will become. I created for you a chance of success chart based on coaching thousands of people, speaking in over 30 different countries, and looking at the thousands of success stories we have created.
It is so good to be on my comeback tour! This past weekend in South Africa we had over 1,700 people at my event, with people overflowing into the hallway outside the ballroom entrance and others sitting on the floor. It certainly looks like my strategies are working, and the reviews are off the charts.
What is the key to success?
This is the question everyone is asking me right now, including the lady sitting next to me who recognized me as I was headed to Poland to open up that market personally. My theme for 2014 was “It’s all about Growth,” yet we have hit a few bumps on the road along the way. I now believe I had the wrong strategy. After expanding in 29 countries worldwide, the idea remains that growth is important, but profit is a much more valuable measure. If you don’t manage your business based on facts, numbers, and statistics, you will fail. You can lie to yourself and talk about the what ifs and tell yourself it will get better, but the reality is that in business, the numbers never lie and they are a direct reflection of the all the decisions you have made.
