(they also explain how to best HELP SOMEONE who is suffering)
The country is again suffering from what some are calling a 1 in 1,000 years weather event.

It has already created flooding and devastation beyond what we saw two years ago.

My view is that it’s in times like these your inner strength becomes your most valuable weapon.

Now is the time to be the best version of yourself.

As much as I’d like to, I can’t ease the burden on the SES or restock the supermarkets.

But I can help you handle it all better mentally and emotionally. I can offer strategies that will help you deal with people whose emotions or situations have overwhelmed them.

So I’m re-sharing those videos to anyone who feels they might help. (They were filming in March of 2020 but the principles are applicable today).

This four part mini series is designed to give you the information you need to handle the coming days in the best possible way – as the best version of yourself. It details how to stay calm amidst the chaos and contains techniques you can use to build inner strength, develop emotional agility and even help others do the same.

For the sake of our country, I want to put my resources at your immediate disposal (for free).

Maybe you need them – maybe you know someone who could use them.

You have my full and unrestricted permission to share them with who ever you believe they could help.

They are being made available by one Aussie to another – no strings.

Feel free to watch or share as you see fit.

Whether this is simply due to COVID or wider market realisations and acceptance that franchising is the answer to people wanting to step out and own their own business I don’t know – it doesn’t matter.
