Still standing after 2023? Read this

December 26, 2023

December 26, 2023

It’s Boxing Day so I’ll keep this one short and sweet…

After all, you’re probably still knee-deep in chocolate, wrapping paper, and pigs in blankets.

So here goes…

Right now, it is the B-I-G day hangover…

And I don’t just mean from the booze.

See, in my experience, today is the day of reckoning…

The day when men like you and I fall into two camps…

Camp #1…

Looking at the past 12 months, reflecting and feeling smug.

Money was good, projects were good, freedom was good.

A classic case of “Cheers to me and my success”…

High on life, these men are bouncing like a 19-year-old at an illegal rave.

Ready and raring to hit 2024.

Which brings me to:

Camp #2…


See, they ain’t feeling quite so bouncy….

More like burned out, bummed-out, and slightly jaded to boot.

Mentally and physically.

Yes, there were some wins.

But the emotional cost was high and the material reward was low.

Now I don’t know in which camp you sit.

Maybe your year didn’t go to plan…

Maybe it did…

Either way, today I’d urge you to…

Sit back.


And breath.

This game of owning a business is hard.

Let’s be honest, if it was easy, every fcuker would be doing it.

And the vast majority are not.

Most are too scared or too lazy.

Or both.

Truth is, very few have the grit and determination to do what you do.

Your world rests on your shoulders.

And that’s a heavy burden to bear.

Because the buck stops with you.

So, no matter how your year went down…. good, bad, or even ugly….

If you are reading this, it’s good news.

You are here.

You made it.

You live to fight another day.

And that is worth celebrating.

See, for men like you and I there is no one coming to pat you on the back.

So take this as one from me.

You’ve earned it.

Onward to 2024.
