That’s the bad news ……
Here’s the good news

……. and September is traditionally one of the peak times of the year when workers consider changing their lives.
If you are one of those 32% reading this article then here’s how you can take some positive action to start to bring about a change in your life. We recently wrote an article on how to define your reason why with a handy pdf you can download to help you.
We know exactly where you are coming from and whilst we did actually love our management consultancy business (which we still have but scaled down) we hated the restrictions it placed on our life because it really was just like having a job!
So if you want to be one of those people who are ready for change then we know that we have a vehicle that can help you to do that – a sustainable business model and a system that you can follow that will give you the opportunity to live the life you want and to enjoy getting up in the morning to “go to work on your own business” (This is not a networking marketing or multi level marketing opportunity)
