This page is all about what I’m doing now, a page I added after listening to Derek Sivers on the Tim Ferriss podcast, where Derek talks about his nownownow.com project.

I’ve broken this page up into two areas: Personal & Business. In that order.

The Personal Now

The UK was great. Caught up with some people I haven’t seen for a long, long time. Now back and settling back into the work routine.

First IVF cycle for child #2 wasn’t successful but next one will be happening in October. Not sure how long we go on with this if #2 doesn’t work but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Finally finished Tim Ferriss‘ Tools Of Titans and just started Daniel Kahneman‘s ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’. He’s a Noble prize winner so understandably the book has a lot of words. I also finished the ‘Subtle Art of Not Giving A F**k’ by Mark Manson whilst I was away. Highly recommend that toon.

Down to 94kg. Which isn’t much of an improvement but back to Park Run every week and have bought a spin bike so I can do 30 minutes during the week days and catch up on some TV!

I’m going to do a stand-up comedy routine. No, seriously. I am. With Rob and Chris. More about this later.

The Business Now

PresCare have the Contented Chef website coming online very soon. It’s a Magento build and despite my original dislike of Magento, I’m warming to it slowly. Walk On Wheels should be live soon too.

All the other clients are still ticking along nicely plus there’s some new work too – an arrangement with Type & Pixel for me to do some digital work for their clients, an opportunity with a great auction company called Hassalls and hopefully the Freemasons Queensland (I’m not a Freemason!) will finally sign off their marketing plan.

A colleague who has been fantastic in sending me work, Nicky, has moved on for her consulting role to a full-time job with an RTO.

And finally, I’m working on launching Four Hours Free. You can read all about it at the website. I have already done three sessions and had rave reviews (I think!).

The Not So Good

Two mistakes of my past are coming back to haunt me and could cost me a lot of money. One is definitely ending up in court; the other could end up in court. Some of the reading I’ve done – especially via Tim Ferriss and Mark Manson – are really, really helping me deal with it all.
