“You don’t choose the life of being an entrepreneur, it chooses you,” is something I found myself saying to a young entrepreneur the other day.
In over a decade in business, I have seen very few true entrepreneurs; people who play big, who take real risk, who get way outside their comfort zone, who risk ridicule every day, who believe when others don’t, who evolve their industry.
It’s not that people can’t do those things, it’s that they won’t do those things.
Your comfort zone is an incredibly attractive place, and most people won’t actually leave it because they won’t leave what’s inside it behind.
If the life of being an entrepreneur is calling you, be prepared to leave a lot behind because the journey is tough.
When it comes to your business, what’s more important, revenue or profit?
I run a course called Board of Directors. Business owners join me for two days every three months and we go deep on their businesses, and their own personal psychology.

People often talk about the impact they want to have… In the future.
After a crisis, most people aim to get back to the state they were in before the crisis.
Recently the World Medical Association ratified a change to the Declaration of Geneva, the modern-day Hippocratic Oath, the value-set of doctors worldwide, to include the health and wellbeing of doctors.
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.
