• COURAGE TO KEEP LEARNING
    Whatever the obstacles, we can help you with the skills and confidence to have a go

Our Philosophy... section done for now Hide

Love, Explore, Discover...

Everything is learnable. If someone else can do it, so can you. When you approach learning with the right mindset the possibilities are endless.

The problem is many people do something different. They start with the thought: "I can't" or "this'll be difficult" or "what’s the quickest way". They may not even try at all, previous attempts failed so why bother, i'm just not that type of person.

We help you believe its possible and then we help you learn the skills to make it all happen.

We're ideally suited to help ambitious professionals and tech entrepreneurs who've come to realise that being busy doesn't get them what they truly want.

That the key to a better life is being a life long learner; finding time somehow, amongst everything else that’s going on, to improve your skills a little bit each and every day.



Evergreen Skills - give you the edge, worth investing in

In this ever changing, unpredictable, volatile world, where busy and budget constraints dominate - what skills are worth investing in, never become dated? Our own research led us to create the "Evergreen Wheel": skills that make life a bit easier, differentiate you in ways that matter, help you achieve goals you really want.

Most people reach the limit of their beliefs...
well before they reach the limit of their talent!

Our Values.... section done for now Hide

If we mismatch there's no point is there! We've tried different approaches and now we're up front, avoids hassle and disagreements later on. We won't compromise on our values, and we're sure you won't compromise on yours.

So lets do a value check and make sure we're compatible for the long term:

Be Teachable

child like curiosity; believe everything is possible; be brave every day; seek opportunities to live, learn and grow; have dreams that you aspire to.

Tough Love

Honesty in communication, commitment and accountability; listen and speak your view point even in the misunderstandings and progress dips.

Acknowledgement

Noticing the talent and contribution of others, and noticing the talent that's within ourselves. It inspires action and belief that more is possible.

Collaboration

Building on the ideas of others; willingness to explore other view points and what mutual success looks like; holding each other accountable.

People and Profit

Healthy balanced focused on financial targets and individual personal development with the aim of sustained long term success and health.

By the way, we are not perfect, and we may never be... these values are aspirational. We know its a tough challenge to live your values in every moment of every day. We ask for your support and help.

If we have an "off day" or forget in the emotions of the moment that we have these goals, do remind us. We'll apologies, take a deep breathe and start again with renewed focus and energy.

We believe there is more potential to grow in failure moments than success moments; however, to do so requires you acknowledge the failure and how it happened; and have a way of lifting yourself up again.

Each day this approach makes you a little bit wiser, and a little bit stronger. Its a philosophy that we call "live and learn"; its a technique used by many successful people.

Don't wish it was easier wish you were better. Don't wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don't wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom.
Jim Rohn

Types of Problems We Solve... section unfinished Hide

Its interesting that when we meet each other, a very normal response to "how are you?" is "I'm fine!" or "Not bad!". What would a more honest answer be?

We all have problems that we are struggling with, that are getting in the way, frustrating us, maybe even stressing us out a bit.

We often don't have time to think of what they are, or how to fix it forever, we just get on with the day and hope tomorrow it gets better somehow.

Some of the problems we can have help with are listed above. If these situations seem familiar, contact us and discover how we can help.

In Summary, We Specialise in... section done for now Hide

Intensive learning experiences that reveal to you the missing insights, adjust your mindset on how to acquire and master the skills that you believe are beyond you; or maybe you're almost there but frustratingly its a continuous struggle to get the results you want.

In essence we help you discover a way to learn the stuff you find difficult. Life is always easier with someone guiding and encouraging you. Contact us.

Mentoring programmes that provide practical guidance in using the skills and mastering the skills in real life situations - the essence of real learning. We do this 1:1 or in groups which benefits from sharing the learning with others.

This can take the form of master classes which run over a short period, say three months; or can be a longer period as we support and help you with longer term ambitions. The choice is yours. Contact us to find out more.

Do it for you! Sometimes you need an experienced person to do the stuff for you. Its either too critically important that having a go or learning how to do it yourself is not the right option; maybe its not your thing, you just hate the thought of doing it and wish there was someone you can delegate it to.

We have an extensive "black book" of specialists we trust. They are all veterans with the experience you need. It may feel like an expensive option but sometimes its wise in the long run to invest in professional help;
contact us and lets talk through the options, you can decide what's best.

A Final Thought From our Founder Dave Nyss... section done for now Hide

We are born with an amazing ability to learn, its in our DNA as humans, to be curious, to explore, to experiment...

Yet somewhere in most people's lives they get another idea, that maybe they are not quite good enough, they begin to have fears, doubts and anxieties about whether the possibilities they want to come true are beyond them.

Those negative ideas and emotions cause us to struggle; maybe you avoid doing the things that will make you successful at what we aspire to be. Maybe you dont have the courage to say I dont know and ask for help.

We only work with people who have a real desire to learn something that will make a difference for them. Thats when we really add value.

If you're not at that point yet, thats fine, come back when you're ready. We're not going away. Learning and helping others to learn the hard stuff is our passion, its what gets us out of bed everyday, helping others to overcome obstacles and achieve seemingly impossible goals.

Self learning - what i want to learn today is... (an Irene Lyon video)

Watch baby Liv learning how to crawl; no Google, no youTube, no teacher; learning is really all about the desire, curiosity and exploration to get something you want.

There is no bad weather, there are only bad clothes.
Swedish Proverb

Natter Business Breakfast Club

No pitching! or swapping sales leads! What’s the point of that?

At the end of busy week enjoy a leisurely breakfast and meaningful conversations with like-minded business owners/entrepreneurs to lift your resolve and give you a bit of respite from the attritional element of having your own business.

It might spark an idea to do something different or solve a frustrating problem that appears impossible but the solution is obvious to someone else with their different viewpoint.

Retire Early - What Would You Do?

Retirement means many things to many people, it used to mean stop working. For some it still does.

We suggest a new meaning, it simple means stop and move on to do something else that’s your passion, maybe run your own business. But that can be difficult, and scary.

So lets teach everyone how to be a Social Entrepreneur, how to manage the risk and how to achieve seemingly impossible goals. People then have a choice: create your own startup or collaboarte with someone else.

Maths Confidence - It Matters

What would happen if every child was good at Maths? Not possible? We believe it is, and its worth striving for.

There are so many social myths around Maths that get in the way of learning. The tough bit with Maths is you cannot fake it, its a right or wrong answer. Thats scary for some children.

Our experience has shown that its these emotions that are the real problem. Teach children some mindset skills that make maths less scary, they can then focus on the learning and get consistently high scores.

The People API

Tech people find it difficult to share ideas with non-tech people; tech people are highly logical, non-tech people are frustratingly illogical.

Collaboration between different types of people is the only way to make big ideas happen. So whats the answer?

Turns out there is a pattern to the illogical nature of non-tech people, its "emotional logic" which has a different paradigm from "computer logic".

The People API - the puzzle of how people communicate defined.
Enjoy failure and you’ll learn from it. You can never learn from success.
