When my daughter came back from a 3-month stint in Colombia, she was full of all these entrepreneurial ideas: making money was easy, building businesses was a doddle, and creating new things was just so much fun!
Within a few months of being home, it was all too hard; she’d lost her spark, she couldn’t figure out what she needed to do and it all fizzled out into nothing.
I was really puzzled because we’re a creative family, we’ve done an awful lots of stuff, but it wasn’t enough for her to keep going or even to feel that it was possible for her to build the business she’d planned in detail when in Colombia, it just all seemed too hard.
When I mentioned it to Victoria, she said “Yes, Australia’s wealth profile isn’t at all creative! California is, they create things all the time, but countries like Australia focus on the red tape now and creativity is stifled.”
I was fascinated because I’d heard of wealth profiling for people, but I never thought of it being applicable at a community or society level.
Victoria has worked in education her whole life, not teaching children, but in adult education for people who want to learn technical skills.
She’s also done a lot of work in HR and specialises in team building. She’s worked closely with Roger Hamilton, the creator of Wealth Dynamics and The Millionaire Master Plan, in building and launching Wealth Dynamics for teams
Join me and Victoria for this not-to-be-missed conversation.
