Hear See Do

I saw an excellent quote in a book I was reading that was on the lounge table of my mentor Allen Pathmarajah in Singapore.

"Hearing something 100 times is not as good as seeing it once.
Seeing something 100 times is not as good as doing it once "

Research indicates that we retain only 10% of what we hear; 20% of what we see; 65% of what we hear and see; but 90% of what we hear, see, and do.

Knowledge is useless and unproductive unless you do something with it.
It's only when we act on the data, facts and information and apply them, that we in fact gain experience.

Here are a few simple yet profound truths about experience:

We learn from our experiences.

If they are positive, we tend to repeat them again and again until we become proficient and our skill levels increase.

If they are negative, we file them away in the back of our minds as cautions or red flags to be recalled when a potentially dangerous situation threatens.

To experience is to be actively involved. An experience is gained when one becomes engaged in an activity or are constantly involved with people over a period of time.

Experiences are dynamic. It's really up to us to take charge of our experiences and not let them just happen to us.

We are shaped by our experiences.

We impact others through our experiences. When we demonstrate an increased ability to work collaboratively with others, their experience levels increase also.

Experiences are the foundation of success. Success results when we apply the invaluable lessons we learn from our experiences and move forward.

It's ok to fail - it is part o our experience , and it is only negative if we do not learn from it. If you take action to rectify the reason for the failure , you will be on a trajectory path to success!

Moral of the story - Is to act.... But make sure you act with knowledge! Do not listen to the cynics and do not be afraid to dream!

Help needed - looking for my why?

Gurus are saying that if you have your "why sussed" and you have a clear sense of purpose... you will be more effective, and achieve the nirvana (whatever that may be) .... Its interesting... working on my “why” ....

I do not have a “Why” as such.... what I do is (I suppose) in my DNA... sort of - why does a fish swim or a lion roar or a monkey swings on trees?..... it just is!
Maybe its helping others achieve their “why" ?    

What is your "WHY"?

10 things you need to do to secure the funding needed for their business to survive and thrive

1.    Get to know your investor before asking for funding. understand the investor and present the information, the style of the pitch, in a way the investor wants it.
2.   Know your market and your customer . What value will your product bring to the customer?
3.   Be ambitious – not conservative…. This is about investing in a disruptive technology…. Its not a me too business…. It’s a binary play … o or won!
4.   Management and skills of the team is key. The product can be great… but if you have a shit team… you can kiss your investment goodbye. Ideally find someone who has done this before.
5.   Know your 30 second pitch. Know your “why” “what” “who” and ” how”
6.   Know your numbers
7.   This needs to be globally scalable!
8.   Needs to be a pain killer and not a vitamin

They will be hosting an educational seminar on the Tuesday 19th March  at 12:30pm and the Wednesday 20th at 6pm in March to discuss the issues and possible solutions. Click those dates if you would like to attend. I hope to see you there.

Issue No. 05 - Retirement Planning
Understanding your retirement options
The concept of retirement has changed considerably over the past decade. No longer is age 65 the standard retirement age.
Employers are becoming more flexible and allowing employees to gradually wind down their working hours into retirement. To compliment this, superannuation laws have changed that now allow you to access a portion of your superannuation at age 55.
Regardless of when you want to retire, there are two important questions that still need to be answered;
- How much income do you need to live?
- How much assets is enough to fund your lifestyle?
Lifestyle is a personal decision, what might be standard for you may be luxury to another.
The Seminar
Given the dilemna above, we will be hosting a seminar that focuses on the following;
- How much is enough for retirement?
- How long do you need to plan for?
- How you can use your super now to benefit your retirement?
- How to reduce tax and boost your retirement benefits?
- How to qualify for the Age Pension?
Our expert advisors will answer each of the above questions and there will be sufficient time for questions. The seminar is designed to be educational and best of all it is complimentary.
The Dilemna
How much do you need to live?
To determine this, you need to analyse your current expenses. An effecient way to do this is to separate your living requirements into fixed and discretionary. This then creates a baseline of what you need to survive and what is left over for the descretionary spending.
What value of assets do you need to maintain the lifestyle above?
In an ideal world, you would have enough assets invested to provide you with a passive income to support your lifestyle. This ensures you never run out of money for you retirement.
 Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. This means you need to implement a strategy over time that will help you get the most out of what you have for retirement. This can include some of the strategies listed below.
What strategies can you implement?
It is never to early to start planning for your retirement. We have listed some strategies that you can implement before you retire;
- Additional contributions to super
- Self Managed Superannuation Funds (including using leverage)
- Changing the Asset Allocation within your existing super fund
- Changing assets to qualify for the Age Pension
- Tax reduction
Each separate strategy will play a pivotal role in helping you achieve your retirement dreams. If you are thinking of retiring, or you just want to learn more about what options there are in retirement feel free to come along to our seminar on the 19th and 20th of March.
If you cannot make the seminar, or you are based outside of Sydney, and you would like a copy of our retirement ebook, pleaseclick here and type "ebook" in the message box.
 We will send you the ebook and notes from the seminar after the event.
