The Meaning of Life

I went to see Deepak Chopra talk in Manchester last night and now feel I understand 'The Meaning of Life' - or at least 'How The Universe Works'...

Having read many of his books it was fantastic to hear him in person, or rather 'read' his energy in person.

Essentially, his message was:

- The World is a hologram
- Our perception of 'reality' is a deception
- We are all One

Further, mankind is a cancer on the Planet that is about to be destroyed - YET we have the opportunity to collaborate and create a different way of being which can live in harmony with the planet.

You may feel cynicism at these words but those that take them on board will be the ones who lead our survival through what is about to happen.

The more I experience, the more I read, the more I FEEL, the more I KNOW that change is nigh.

Does Cosmic Ordering Work?

In the week that Noel Edmonds launches his 'Cosmic Ordering' iPhone app, I find myself on a preview call tonight discussing the Law of Attraction and how it has worked in my life...

As I travel the country speaking at events, I'm noticing a sea change in the way people approach life, not to mention huge shifts in my own. Subjects which were once written off as 'New Age' are becoming increasingly mainstream. People are starting to realise that there IS a 'magic' to the Universe, and that when you are tapped into its flow, life becomes joyful, effortless and abundant. Yet when you lose that connection life becomes stressful, frustrating and joyless - and money just seems to dry up.

As someone who has experienced both extremes, increasingly I'm being asked to speak about my entrepreneurial experiences, but from a more esoteric viewpoint. First at the Mind Body & Spirit festival earlier this year, and now at the Transformational Business Summit happening in Brighton from 23 to 25 October.

In tonight's event preview call I'll be talking to the lovely, charismatic Alan Forrest Smith (you may recall he was one of my Marketing Magicians at the British Library event in June) and his partner, the sparkling Transformational Leader Katharine Dever who are organising this amazing event.

We'll be discussing:

- Does the Law of Attraction work?
- Can it yield results for you?
- How can you generate MORE from the Law of Attraction?
- Should you be interested?
- Why doing business in 2009 is the perfect time to succeed.
- Why NOW is the perfect time to be female and in business

It is going to be a fascinating conversation!

I do hope you will be able to join us - it's happening tonight, Tuesday 22 September at 7pm. You can register for the call at and you'll be emailed login details. And it's totally FREE.

I look forward to speaking to you later, as well as hopefully seeing you in Brighton in October!

Fire Fighting Again

It's always wonderful to see my mentoring clients flourish with their business and last Friday I was at the opening of the new premises of Assured Fire and Security in Rotherham. Their business is booming and right now the safety & security sector is a brilliant place to be with the rise in crimes associated with the recession.

It's nearly a year since I started mentoring the business founder and owner Simon Stokes and I'm really proud that he is doing so well.

As well as my one-to-one mentoring I'm just about to launch a new 'Inner Circle' mentoring programme - watch this space for details.

Dr Stephen Covey

Just closed a fascinating webinar with Dr Stephen Covey - author of the internationally best-selling book 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. Did you know it has sold over 30 million copies worldwide? And that it was named #1 most influential business book of the 20th century? And that it was all achieved through word of mouth?

He's coming to London to speak at Central Hall Westminster on 14th October about his latest book 'The 8th Habit' - and I for one will be there. You can get tickets from here - look forward to seeing you there!

The DLOG's new business

You will all be pleased to know that our friend The DLOG has set up his new print business Giraffe Press - view his Blog here !

The current site and branding is only temporary, basically Jason can do any printing for business that you need - he's fast, inexpensive and always gets it right first time.

Give him a whirl!


Anonymice Beware!

Those of you who have been following my Blog will know that occasionally I get the odd ranting slagging - usually from an 'Anonymouse' commentator...

So I was interested to read in Felix Dennis's fab magazine The Week about the case of former Vogue model Liskula Cohen who was called a 'psychotic, lying, whoring, skank [slag]' who 'may have been hot 10 years ago' on a Blog. Cohen filed a defamation suit against Google to identify the Blogger's email - and she succeeded. The culprit turned out to be a 29 year old fashion student and vague acquaintance called Rosemary Port.

Liskula phoned Port - and forgave her - then Port threatened to sue Google for $15million for failing to protect her identity!

In the words of the journo who wrote the piece 'As if people who spew venom on the Internet while hiding their identity deserve any. What is the mentality that let's them get in our face while wearing a mask? It's true that anonymity can sometimes serve the public interest. But on the Internet it's often less about being constructive and more about being cowardly.'

Hear Hear !!!

Making Money While You Sleep

It was lovely to log on this morning and find lots of DVD sales had come in overnight for the Magical Marketing DVD set I featured in yesterday's post.

It reminded me of something one of my earliest mentors said to me, and that was 'Rachel, you know you're a success when you start making money while you sleep'.

Not long ago I was at a Christopher Howard (the NLP Wealth Guru) event where he was talking to an audience of about 2000 about how to become rich beyond their wildest dreams. He asked the audience 'Tell me, how do you make money?' to which I shouted back (as I am inclined to do at such events) 'Create products and services people want to buy!'

Apparently it was the wrong answer - because Christopher ignored my response and went on to tell the audience to create a mindmap of their most admired entrepreneur - Richard Branson or whoever.

Yep, I do agree there is a certain billionaire mindset - but in my experience that only grows after a sustained period of small successes gives you the confidence to think on a bigger scale.

And it never ceases to amaze me how some people try to over-complicate business.

The only mindset really required is to understand what a customer needs and then give it to them!!! If your product or service isn't selling, then simply ask the customer why, and then adapt until you get to something they DO want to buy.


PS Small caveat to the above... It's interesting because the majority of the sales are from someone whose name is familiar. A guy who I did an event for for free in Aberdeen 2 years ago, someone I'm currently mentoring, a girl I sat next to at the convention dinner on my recent trip to Phoenix, one of my Masterclass participants. It serves to remind that every day in business you are planting seeds - and you never quite know when they are going to blossom!

Low Cost Marketing

It's finally here! The 4 DVD set of the acclaimed Marketing Magician's event featuring over six hours of low cost marketing techniques is now available for purchase at

"Just had to write to say that your Marketing Magicians seminar was without doubt the best I have been to with multiple speakers. The speakers were brilliant in their content and delivery, each one with a different approach. They really knew their field and how to educate the audience in a short time. It was the best seminar for the calibre of delegates attending, intelligent serious business owners who had taken a day away from their business to learn something and who were not disappointed." Angela Beaugeard, Director, Paul Avins Enterprises

Speakers include Internet Marketing Expert Mark Attwood on how to get to the top of Google and much much more, Copywriting Genius Alan Forrest Smith on the power of words to drive sales, Personal Empowerment Coach Sue Stone on how your mindset creates your world, Referral Marketing Expert Royston Guest on how to exponentially drive sales and Celebrity Tailor Thomas Mahon on how he built a £multi-million international business purely through writing a Blog. As well as myself on how to build a brilliant PR-able brand.

And as a special offer for my loyal Blog followers there's a special discount for you if you enter the promotional code RachelFriends here.

I am so confident that you will find the DVD valuable to your business that if after you have watched through and you didn't find anything which you believed would return the cost at least ten times over, I will give you a full refund!

I can't say fairer than that.

"One of the best business events I have ever attended" Paul Fowler, Owner, Enstone Flying Club

But hurry, this special promotional code won't be available for long.
