It’s been a while since I wrote about what is happening at Evolve Dynamic. I looked at the calendar with only a month to go before the end of the year, and my Swedish mastermind partner, Christina, reminded me of my goals for the year. We were both quite astounded most of them either have or are about to be fulfilled! Some are coming in with only minutes to spare, one has been shelved for another year.
How are your goals coming along? Perhaps by sharing some of mine, you will get some inspiration to take action on yours – and set much bigger ones for 2013? At the risk of repetition, I’ll remind you what Bob Proctor has to say about goals: “If it’s not scary and exciting, then it’s not a good goal for you!”
This year I set the intention to have some products available to purchase – a way of making my knowledge and inspiration available to people even when I’m not in front of them. I’m delighted to let you know that I have my first publication in progress. The Attitude of Gratitude Journal is currently in layout phase and will be published in a few weeks time. Watch this space!
We have been purchasing property in the USA since 2010, and have recently settled on our 5th property there. With so many people asking me about it, I’ve started running workshops sharing my learning and experience. Is it profitable? Definitely. Is it risky? If you don’t know what you’re doing – definitely! If you know what you’re doing, it can be less risky than anything else you’re doing. Why did I get started in this? Because in 2009, when we experienced what can happen when the price of a metal falls – I decided never again to have all my eggs in one basket. I’d thought that diversifying one’s assets meant having a range of property, shares, income from a job, income from a business – but if they are all influenced by one factor (for example mining) then that is a very risky strategy! Western Australia is very heavily reliant on mining, oil and gas. If the price of iron ore falls (as it did briefly a few months ago), the ripple effect goes through from job loss, to share price, to the price of property in that region.
Investing in the USA right now is a smart move. Our latest purchase was at 42% of it’s 1999 price. AND it cost the same as a new car would have AND it brings in $900 per month.

At the moment it’s only being run in Perth, but if you’d like me to run it wherever you live, let me know! The next USA investing workshop will be on Tuesday 4 December, and the next one on 11 January.
The It’s My Time workshop in September was a great success. I love seeing the light in your eyes when you set a goal that you’re excited about! The home-study program for It’s My Time is in production right now. It consists of a video program, a workbook and some other exciting goodies that we’re working on. So many things to do, so little time!
This year I have continued to coach and mentor business owners, and to connect them to others in the Dynamic Mastermind Alliance meetings. Being part of these conversations has been fun and very rewarding. Working with successful people is something that I’m very fortunate to do and I look forward to continuing these conversations into the New Year and beyond! Thank you to those who have participated and made it a wonderfully interesting experience!
I would like to wish you a very good festive season, a blessed Christmas, a fun New Year and a very uplifting and profitable 2013.
However you choose to celebrate or holiday this year, make sure it fills your cup, renews your energy and builds the ties to those that you hold dear.
