I talk to Neil Ball about how if you know why somebody does something that aligns with their values, their passions, their desires, their dreams, then that's the energy that people communicate with, that's when people will buy your services or products.

Entrepreneurial Role Models
Simon’s coach, John P. Morgan
When business started difficulties overcame
“I don’t know if I thought of myself as an entrepreneur in the sense I was in a job that I hated, I discovered something called coaching which I loved and by default I had to find how to create a business so the thing that got in my way wasn’t just simply self-belief because I really knew I wanted to step into coaching but I’d never done it before and so I spent a long time not knowing how to make the transition from working and being paid by an organisation to being paid by myself”

Best Advice to Other Entrepreneurs
“Do what makes your eyes shine, find that thing in you which you feel passionate about, there’s a great guy called Simon Sinek, he has some great resources online, he talks about your why, and that’s your reason for doing whatever it is that you do and he has this wonderful quote which is People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it, and that really speaks volumes, if you do something because you just want to make some money, then people will really understand that that’s your reason for it and they won’t necessarily feel particularly inspired but if you know why somebody does something that aligns with their values, their passions, their desires, their dreams, then that’s the energy that people communicate with, that’s when people will buy your services or products”
