In my last blog post I shared the secret to wealth and happiness. Which according to Tony Robbins is becoming a team player.


What does being a team player mean? I asked Google and some of the best answers I got are below...

I think this is one of those questions where everyone wants to know the answer.


What's the secret to wealth and happiness?


Many people spend their lives chasing money and wanting and waiting to be happy. But for many people these two goals are always just a little out of reach, it’s never going to happen for them. They'll not succeed. They'll never become “wealthy” and they don’t know how to make t...

I met Lisa Simmons at a networking event on the Wirral and we hit it off straight away, she mentioned she would love for me to come and be a guest on her new show, the 52% show which had just started to be aired on Bay TV, a local TV channel for Liverpool. I thought it was one of those throw away comments, and didn’t expect anything to come from it.

However, a few weeks later I got an e-mail from Beth...

In order to live an extraordinary quality of life, Tony Robbins talked about the need to master two skills. The Science of Achievement and the Art of Fulfilment. In this blog post I look at both in more detail.


When I first heard Tony talking about this, the main thought I had was this is so true and I believe in this 100%. It reminded me of, The Secret and The Law of Attraction. 


The Secret is a boo...

There are so many people who live average lives, they wake up in the morning, have the same breakfast every day, head out to work and do the standard nine to five, come home exhausted, collapse on the sofa and turn the TV on. That’s it, they do this Monday through Friday and really do live for the weekend or for the two week holiday they have once a year. 


This is not a life, this is not living. This...

How to get there

  • Plan how you’re going to get to Thredbo – It’s not the easiest place to get to via public transport - driving would be your best bet.

  • Book your accommodation before you go, it can get booked up pretty quickly especially when it’s high season.

  • There is free parking in the village

  • Check out the Thredbo Website at

What to take on the walk?

  • Take e...

Around Thredbo there are another five alternative walks you can do. These walks all begin at Valley Terminal at the base of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift and according to the guide are relatively easy.


If you have the time this is a great way to loosen up and acclimatise for the longer walks at a higher altitude.


-Riverside – Gold Course Walk

-Meadows Nature Track

-Bridle Trail Loop

-Pipeline Path

I’ve always wanted to climb Mount Kosciuszko in Australia. I did a blog post on March 3rd about doing this very challenge.


I would love to climb the highest mountain on each continent and while I was in Australia this was on my ‘MUST’ do list.


No excuses, I was going to make this happen!


Making it happen


It’s true what they say if you want it bad enough you’ll make it happen. I could have easily have...

In 1840 there was a Polish explorer called Paul Strzelecki who named the mountain after a Polish freedom fighter called General Tadeusz Kosciuszko whose tomb is of a similar shape back in Krakow.


Before 1997 the name was spelled Kosciusko without the ‘z’. The Geographical Names Board of New South Wales agreed to change the spelling to ‘Kosciuszko’ which is the correct spelling of the General Surname.
