So what do you think – did JP Morgan come out and say Bitcoin was over, drop the price on it, and then come out buying ?
Of course they bloody did.
Banks definitely have NOT got your best interests at heart.
But we need them.
Hope you enjoy this podcast, taken from one of my videos down at my favourite coffee shops here in Spain.
I see it all the time; people would rather look good than have financial freedom.
Yep, I know it's controversial (That is so unlike me I know), but there you go.
An enjoyable rant about getting things done in the right order!
A big thankyou to Mike Woods (Property Coach) and previous client of mine for the image of HIS Ferrari - a man who was financially free before he bought his toys and did it the right way round.
It’s True !
I ended up on a 5 Million Euro Yacht at the Cannes yacht Festival.
The Yacht is available by the way, if you have a spare 5 Million Euros and you want the ultimate in boys toys.
I have to say it's a beautiful Yacht - and you can speak with Cornelius if you would like to view it at http://www.breezeyachting.swiss/
TELL HIM I SENT YOU OF COURSE!
So - find out what I was doing on there, and how it all happened by listening to the podcast !
So during a recent chat on Facebook, I was talking to a nice guy, but whose business had taken over his life.
So during a recent chat on Facebook, I was talking to a nice guy, but whose business had taken over his life.
His revenues were UP, but profits were DOWN.
Stress was UP, but time with family was DOWN.
Sometimes more turnover/revenues is not the answer.
Less money. More profit.
I know, it sounds all a bit 'Jerry Maguire' doesn't it (Have you seen that film yet?)
Anyway, take a listen, and let me know what you think.
Our emotions control how we react to almost everything that happens to us.
Some reactions take place before our emotions are allowed to kick in of course (fight or flight response) but when that initial danger is over, our emotions are whats left to put together how we feel about things.
Sometimes though, our mind forces us to choose perhaps the wrong emotion.
And that emotion can stay with us for quite some time, and we even give them labels like 'depression'.
This podcast will talk about how you can choose which emotions you want to feel, how to move you out of a negative emotion and into a much more positive emotion.
It's a pretty cool technique and anyone can do it.
Take a listen.

Dan talks about why it’s not just about the Hustle.
Thou shall have thy own hustle
Hustle is a word used to describe constant movement, it's what they use to describe the work they do in a busy fashion. In a sense, it's a positive and productive term. It produces progress and wealth, career-wise.
However, should life be all about hustling?
I think not.
When you focus on someone else’s business, you’re presenting yourself to a risk that you have ZERO control about.
It’s very common for people to lend a hand on a business for benefits and there’s nothing wrong with helping someone out, however, some people put so much focus on other people’s businesses when they really should be putting the focus on themselves.
Worst case scenario: you've put your all into a business that isn't your own, a business you have no complete control over, and then you run the risk of receiving less rather than gaining more.
If you can put so much effort in a brand that isn't yours, imagine the effort you'll exert in something you can call your own.
Also, you miss the opportunity, struggle and triumph of being your own company because you may fail but at least it's yours to rise back up.
A person can be brand, you can have credibility and thus the benefits will come forward – that is reason enough on why you should be focusing on you as a brand.
Benefits may include so much more than what working for a business offers and of course there’s the possibility of a downfall and you don’t want to go down with it.
Keep watching and I’ll tell you more about it.
Read the title, again and again, until it becomes a part of your mindset.
It’s about time we talk about time because time goes on fast, doesn’t it? One day you’re in high school, the next you’re waking up to get to work.
And as we grow, it seems as if time speeds up for us and who knows how much time left we actually have.
That’s why I say, there’s no time to waste.
You could be 50, you’re broke and looking back wishing you hadn’t spent a lot of time playing video games and spent it looking for a better job. Which leads to regret and that’s a really heavy burden to carry, you don’t wanna live with regret.
A wasted time is a time that doesn’t provide your life progress.
This is a wake up call.
In this video, I’ll show you what it means you can rock your week and how you can reap its benefits.
Mondays have always had a dreadful stigma around it – the start of a week, weekends over, back to work, the same vicious cycle. Letting such mindset get in your head gives you can affect your performance the rest of the week. Then you’ll be groggy, unmotivated, unproductive and tired.
But it doesn’t always have to be that way!
Your week is what your life consists of, and rocking your week means making the best out of your time and life. No one wants wasted and idle time.
Also, you’d be surprised what productivity and motivation in a week can do for your success and financial stability.
The sheer amount of noise you have to make simply to get noticed these days is huge.
The more noise you make to get noticed, the more people TAKE notice.
Get creating content now. And remove this area of business that’s failing.
With the widespread of aspiring and upcoming new businesses wanting a place in the market, it's like battle royale just to get noticed. But that's what advertisements are for - to get your business out there.
But is mere advertisement enough?
With the development of internet, the traditional ways of advertisements are basically ineffective.
However, there's a way to get your business noticed by the people casually scrolling through the internet and that's by creating content.
The more content you put out, the more possibility that people may come across your business.

Sales are the main heart of any business, sales are what makes or breaks a company or a brand. But that doesn’t mean that sales are easy, it also doesn’t mean that sales have to be very complicated.
With the right mindset and knowledge, sales will just be elementary for you.
In this video, I talk about sales funnels and all about sales in general. So if you are an aspiring businessman or woman, or if you are on your way to a new business venture then keep on watching.
There's a reason why some get ahead more than others, and it's down to how they value their time.
Understanding that to move forward you don't need to be being paid to do so all the time.
Listen to the podcast and let me explain in detail and this could change the way you think about your marketing efforts.
Hope you enjoy it !
It's not 20lbs overweight
It's not struggling for money all the time
It's not being fearful about the future.
Being the best version of you requires dedication, belief and actions repeated daily.
Take my gym for example - I got to the stage in my weight where I was unhappy with it. So now I'm dealing with it.
It's hard fucking work. Every single day.
Chocolate, donuts, pizza, bread; all gone 🙁
Sitting around watching Netflix (mostly gone!)
And in it's place is salmon and eggs for breakfast (every breakfast) after my 30 minute cardio session.
Then it's into doing some work on my business.
Then it's into workout 2 at 12.30 pm, 4 days on and then a day of rest lifting heavy weights.
Does it hurt ? Yep.
Do I want to take the day off ? Yep
Do I really not want to go to the bloody gym ? Of course I don't.
Then, after that - I go and shoot basketball for an hour.
Yep - 3 workouts a day - the whole lot takes 3 hours.
4 days on, 1 day off.
That's dedication. That's routine. But is it getting results? Of course - how can it NOT ?
Routine - day in, day out.
In my business, writing long form copy such as this - do I want to do it ? Not always.
Do I get results from it ? Yep.
My social media engagement increases, I get more friend requests and people follow me without requesting friendship on Facebook.
Does that content then go out to my email list? Yep.
And does that get results? What do you think !
Day in, day out.
That's what gets the results.
That's what will lead you to being the best version of you, whatever that may be.
Want to step up and be the best version of you ?
Come and spend two days with me in Spain, and let's map out your entire future and put the plan in place.
For years, we've been told 'the money is in the list' and so we go off and spend money on building our list.
Only ... there's a problem. Email open rates have consistently been going down over the last 15 to 20 years.
Remember AOL when Joanna Lumley proudly announced 'you have mail' and we got excited ?
That no longer happens. Instead we're deluged with emails every single day. And that causes a problem for us marketers.
So in this podcast, I talk about what numbers you need to measure your email success by.
Marketing is a huge part of business, it’s the path to the people, to the consumers. It’s how you put your brand in the market and how you make sure your brand stays relevant.
Speaking of making sure that your brand stays relevant, doing marketing right and doing it effectively can do greatly for your business, it can guarantee an automatic process and progress.
If you want to learn more on proper effective marketing and automating your process, then keep on listening and I’ll tell you more.
I’ve been asked for this quite a bit – so here it is for you !
The art of hitting two birds with one stone if ever I've seen one, video marketing-wise.
Facebook live is a great way to express and inform a vast of viewers (and potential costumers).
However, not everyone has access or wants to access the aforementioned social media website because there's the whole formality of making an account and signing up.
What better way to preserve the information and the video than upload it to another more accessible social media platform - Youtube.
Here's how to do it.
Becoming An Authority In Your Field Recorded on the drive over to the beach in Spain.
I talk about how to become an authority in your field. Being an authority in your field equals to credibility, it is a trait for professionals that allows them to be known and the presence they carry in the field.
However, it goes beyond advertising their brand but also advertising the values they sell, what makes them credible, and why clients should go to them. Doing just that allows a company or a brand to really build an effective name for themselves, thus paving a way for more clients which equals to more success.
So if you want to hear how to become an authority on your field then keep on watching.
In this video, I just wanted to quash a few ‘misnomers’ about what we actually do as Business Coaches.
All Business Coaches are different of course, so I have my own unique take on what it means to be a Top Performing Business Coach.
But then I'm a little bit different than most people (Something I make no excuses for!)
Now I live in Spain, I've had to come up with different ways of making things happen both in my own business, and in the businesses of my clients.
Take our marketing for example.
We no longer do any public speaking. That's not to say that public speaking isn't a great way of spreading your message and gaining new clients, because, obviously it is.
But it's a bit harder when you no longer live in the country that people are based in !
So we had to come up with new ways of both providing coaching services (the delivery of our coaching product to our clients for example), and we've also had to come up with new ways of getting our message out to as many people as possible via video and podcasting.
Would you rather spend an hour getting there, an hour on stage, and an hour coming home - or would you prefer to knock out 6 videos in the first 2 hours, and 3 podcasts in the 3rd hour ?
That business talk only lasts that one evening - but the video and podcasts will last for years to come !
Best to give up your phones, your marketing, and your advertising too.
Best give up your team, your staff, and the people who are relying on you.
Best to give up your social media, your business books you buy and your mindset investments.
Bets give up on your dreams, and get a job in the 'real world'.
Business is hard. It takes risks. It takes investment. It takes guts. It takes Optimism.
It takes sleepless night. It takes battling through that 'inner voice'.
I'm not saying you should just be optimistic and that 'everything will be alright' - because it might not be alright.
But doing your very best, and increasing the PROBABILITY that your business will work, will FAR OUTWEIGH not doing anything to put yourself into a position that will give you a chance at success because of the FEAR that holds you back.
Those that give up too soon.
That don't invest in their marketing; are the ones that will ultimately fail.
It's sad, but when I see people still in EXACTLY the same position they were in 2 years ago, because they were too scared to pull the trigger is frightening.
What the hell are they waiting for?
Make It Happen.
Go and do it. Make it work one way or another, kicking or screaming. Life or death.
Because we only get one life. And we don't want to get to the end of it thinking 'damn, I WISH I had done that'
You gotta give yourself the best probability that you will get what you want.
That takes hard work and taking calculated risks.
In other words, put yourself into a situation where you give yourself the best CHANCE for success, one that will increase the probabilities of WINNING.
Have I taken risks and had stuff not work ?
Of course I have. And I learned a lot along the way. I've failed forwards for the last 20 years.
But at least I found out for myself, rather than listening to someone else.
There has been lots of times I've been told I couldn't do something, and done it anyway.
"That won't work" they say.
And what they're saying is 'THEY couldn't do it'.
So I go and do it anyway, because I want to find out if it was just them that couldn't do it, or whether it can be done, it just needed me to do it.
And you know what?
95% of the time, I got it done.
And so can you.
You reach a point where you go 'I'm going to make this happen, no matter what' - and it's in that moment that your success begins.
It can be scary going it alone, we all know how that feels. And it's a lot less scary when you're with someone who has been down that path before.
What are you waiting for ?
Business Coach Daniel Latto shows you the shortcuts to getting an Aweber Form into a Wix Website.
Daniel Latto was nominated for Small Business Coach of the Year 2013 & 2014 !
Often these things can be quite easy but it's like anything - if you don't know how to do them it can stop your business in it's tracks.
That's why most business owners need a business coach, so that they can get given the directions that a business coach already has, and get on their way as quickly as needs be instead of getting stuck on something technical.
I've been a Business Coach for over 10 years, and we've seen all sorts from bad time management, to poor mindset, low self esteem and poor self talk, a business thats running away from them and all their time used up.
So when you hire a Business Coach, it's pretty easy for us to get stuck into the problem and resolve it quickly as the chances are we've already seen it many times and solved that problem.
Obviously as a business owner, you have so many plates to spin, it's impossible to know everything all the time, so with a business coach, it allows you a little bit of slack where we can take on some of the issues you have and solve them for you.
Business Coaching - one of the best investments you'll make all year !
People want to know how good our training is.
So if you want your Daniel Latto review - just watch the videos !
Business Coaching and Training Ltd presents our one day Business Growth Intensive Training in Leeds.
This one day of Business Training is designed to help you move your business onto the next level to increase your income, improve your lifestyle and work less by being more organised, more focused and more relaxed about what needs to be done to grow your business.
They know they SHOULD be doing something, but the whole Facebook thing looks complicated as heck, and they've already spent money on Facebook Ads and got nothing in return.
So why bother right ?
But doing 'Facebook Ads' versus 'Getting Clients' are two completely different things.
And so because you ended up not getting the results you wanted, you end up not doing nothing of any consequence.
You're then in 'marketing purgatory' - you know what I mean, you know you SHOULD do something but you don't know WHAT, so you end up doing nothing.
Again. Another month goes by. And another. And then another.
And you're trying all sorts of different things only to get the same mediocre results.
So because I see this so often, over the last 12 weeks I've been developing what I call the 'Triple Threat Client Engine' or 'T3' as we call it in house.
You won't find this anywhere else, because it doesn't exist anywhere else.
Now, just imagine being able to focus back onto your customers while your marketing works on autopilot, bringing on the RIGHT type of customers week in, week out.
In short, this system audits, amplifies and accelerates your outreach to potential clients that are tightly targeted to your service. This is where our ' Triple Threat Client Engine kicks in.
Now, you could be a physio, a personal trainer, a Chiropractor, a restaurant - basically anybody who has the skills and extra capacity to take on more clients.
This works especially well for those with repeat clients.
Most service businesses usually have most of the systems in place, but what they don't have is enough clients to match that capacity (We call that equilibrium).
When we get a client past equilibrium, that's when we can then focus the business on staff training, time management and all that coaching stuff that gets you more time freedom.
But you can't get time freedom until you get your marketing right.
Not being at capacity drives business owners crazy, I mean, how many times have you seen the Personal Trainer at the Gym end up doing the hoovering because they're just not busy enough.
Crazy right ?
So if you have capacity in your business, and are ready to take on more clients throughout the next 12 weeks, then you should make contact.
But only do it if you have capacity for more clients, as were only looking for those who can handle a surge in business.
Look, if you haven't got a client acquisition system in place, then you're spending an unusually high amount of time trying to market your business instead of servicing your clients.
Shouldn't that be the other way around?
And that's where the Triple Threat Client Engine comes in.

Where does the actual results come from ?
Do you just wake up one morning and everything is just lined up in place perfectly for you?
Or does it take something more than that ?
Dreams are something we all have and sometimes they are called aspirations or goals, however you want to call them. It is a visualization of ourselves, what we are, what we have, where we are, how we're living: dreams visualize it for you, but it excludes the question, when do we get there/it, how do we get there/it because it is you -the dreamer- who answers that question, who puts action to it and most importantly, who gets there or who gets it.
That's how it works because dreams are better off just being dreams in a sleeping state until they become reality when you work for it every waking moment.
