Great, let’s do this…
There’s a lot to get done every day and there’s never enough time to do it.

We once read somewhere that a survey of ninety year old’s uncovered that their #1 regret was NOT TAKING MORE RISKS in their lives.
This week I ran into a very old friend at the airport.

He was travelling to a yet another stale corporate meeting, frustrated and upset.
I was travelling to New Orleans for a mastermind and to attend a marketing conference during Mardi Gras weekend.

After spending four years in University to earn a three year degree here’s what I did next…
1. Spent $13,500 on a 9-month post-grad Information Technology Course at a school called ITI on Bay Street in Toronto.
Then, together with Nick…
2. Spent $40,000 for a box of marketing materials and CDs. Literally, a box with some binders and a CD case of CDs.
3. Spent $10,000 a year attending two conferences in the U.S. for five years straight.
4. Spent $50,000 for six days worth of “mastermind meetings” with other business owners spread out over two year. That’s $50,000 for six days.
