I’m not talking about the top 1% of money earners, which is all relative anyway depending on what you’re referencing, I’m talking about the vocal 1% who don’t get you. You know who I’m talking about; the peers who don’t think you can do something, the customers who are never happy and love telling you about it, the suppliers who never deliver…
These are the vocal ones, the ‘squeaky wheels’, and they are the ones to be careful of.
Because if the squeaky wheels get all the oil, what happens to the other neglected wheels? The wheels who support you, the wheels you love buying from you, the wheels who always deliver for you?
Forget about the 1% and focus on nurturing the 99%, because they deserve it.

I was recently speaking to a group of corporates.
And I had to smile.
I speak to a lot of groups of people AND Purpose is something that I’m big on, and it invariably leads to someone asking the question, “I don’t know what I want to do. What should I do?”
“When is it giving up, and when is it changing direction?” is a question I get asked a lot.
Some people like beer.
Some people like wine.
Recently I was fortunate to attend a good friend of mine’s wedding in Bali. He’s a partner at a well-known law firm in Singapore, and many of the attendees were merchant bankers, venture capitalists and other people in the finance space.
