“I didn’t sign up for this, David”
Her words punching me in the gut as she packed her bags.
For 6 straight years my schedule was crazy.
I was working 14hr days.
I’d jump from client to client … to even MORE clients.
And with what “free time” I did have was spent putting out fires and dealing with staff issues.
I was going balls to the wall. No excuses.
Every single day I invested all my TIME, ENERGY and EFFORT into building a successful business.
Don’t get me wrong, I was generating serious money.
And it was nice to look in my bank account and see all those zeros.
But do you know what?
I was exhausted.
I don’t just mean a bit tired, or in need of a lie in on a Sunday and I was good to go again.
❌ Sacrificing friends, family time and even my mental health for the sake of the business.
❌ Working 16-hour days, 7-day weeks, and giving up on the idea of holidays for a few years
❌ Trying my hardest to quiet the negative inner voices, eliminate all self doubt, and showing up motivated, even when all I wanted to do was crawl back into bed.
❌ Removing my emotions, keeping on ploughing forward and essentially “manning up” the whole time.
On the surface, I looked content, happy and in control.
But deep down, the chaos inside my head, and the stress and frustration… it was ruining me.
I was being crushed by business-induced panic attacks,
I couldn’t sleep on a night due to heart palpitations, worrying about staff, marketing, business operations and everything else I had going on.
I remember one morning my alarm piercing my ears and shocking the life out of me at 0430am.
I just lay there completely paralyzed and couldn’t get out of bed. I said to myself “is this it?”
Man, I felt lost. I was completely burned out. I felt completely disconnected from everything.
My girlfriend couldn’t stand who I’d become.
Her words… “I didn’t sign up for this, David.”
But I’d try and provide rationale for my actions:
“Next year will be different”
“If I can just get a few more clients, everything will be ok”
And I’d do what 99% of every other businessmen do…
Try and justify it to my partner by saying “I’m doing this for us.”
But guess what she wanted?
Yes me, not the fancy bag, the fancy house or the nice cars.
She wanted the guy she fell in love with all those years back!
Not the David who was glued to his phone at 10pm every night.
Thing is, earning more money in business is almost too appealing to pass up…
So it’s a bit of a dilemma to get balance in your life, right?
Well, maybe not.
Let me explain.
What if you WERE able to break free of the ball and chain of business and unlock the power in your business, marriage and health like you’ve never had before?
If you could do that, then you’d be able to:
✅ Break free of self limiting, sabotaging behaviour patterns and be able to stay calm amongst the chaos of business and life.
✅ Win back 5, 10, even 20+ hours per week, giving you the kind of business (and lifestyle) you’ve always dreamed of.
✅ Drastically reduce stress and overwhelm (you’ll be kicking yourself when you see how simple this step can be).
✅ Create certainty and confidence in business, free up more time and energy to reach more people, serve more customers and finally “make the impact you’ve dreamed of making”
Which could sound too good to be true.
But it’s not.
And it took me until 2019 where I was at a business seminar and the guy’s story resonated so powerfully with me that it completely changed me in an instant.
Which allowed me to overcome my own self-doubt and fears to ultimately build the business and life I’d always wanted.
It’s actually what I want to share with you in a free online masterclass for ambitious business owners.
In the class, I’ll be revealing some of my most powerful tactics, strategies and systems.
But it’s not just me that uses these systems…
I’ve helped hundreds of other business owners use them too.
And now they’re scaling their income while working less
and breaking through every plateau in their business, marriage and life without being a slave to their business.
Better yet, they’re doing it using something called the “C4 Method” (that I’ll share with you) which arms them with systems to get a handle on their feelings and emotions, and finally crush any self-doubt, while unleashing unstoppable motivation that never runs out.
All while creating stability for their families
