      Hello Mr Magnificent!

      1) Thank you for sharing your plan – sharing being a hallmark of the abundance mentality so valuable (to ALL)
      2) You’ve always been working for yourself, I encourage you to respect that paradigm – no one has been giving you handouts, there has simply been an alternative accounting treatment to your income stream versus the one moving forward
      3) Believe. You’re already there…
      4) Ref item 3.

      Big visions to you and the Mr Magnificent family!

      Hola Cynthia,

      I love the ‘alternative accounting treatment’ in your comment. It leaves a ‘smile on’ feeling. I will continue to ref item 3 over and over. Promise

      Love the plan Colin and your approach to taking on these goals so visibly; you’ll do great and your plan looks very doable. I left my corporate exec. position 9 years ago and reached my goal of matching my corporate salary in the first year and have continually surpassed it doing many of the same things you’re doing. However, I haven’t done the affiliate marketing and am always seeking new revenue channels–anxious to see how that works out for you. Also curious about one detail–what program did you use to create your slides/video–nicely done! Good luck! Independence is wonderful.

      Hi Cheryl.
      Its re-assuring to hear you matched you corporate income in your first year and have gone on to surpass it. I plan to blog about each of these businesses, that includes my affiliate business so stay tuned. I use Camtasia Studio. You can download it for a free 30 day trial. I took me a while to understand it but they do have some great training videos that help. Let me know how you get on. Thanks for the encouragement

      Hi Colin,
      I love your openness and your joy in sharing. I think you are on the right track. I can take parts of your plan and implement them into my coaching business. Thanks again. Keep up the great work and soon you will be having your “Great Big Life”

      Hi Debbie,
      Thanks for the comment and I love the idea of living a “Great Big Life” It reminds me of the wise words of Josepth Campbell – “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so to have the life that’s waiting for us. I appreciate you putting fingers to key board.

      Hi Graham,
      Breaking Free of anything thats getting in the way of living the life we desire is what its all about. Although I come across with confidence I have moments of doubt and worry that would cripple me if I let it. My recommendation to you is to starting working on a plan to breaking free now, don’t wait for me, I might screw up! That doesn’t mean you will. Thanks for stopping by and good luck on the road ahead.

      Impressed with your clarity of focus and applying what you already know to what you can now do for yourself. As said above, looks highly achievable from what you have shown us so far. Look forward to hearing more of how well it is it is going – as a business and as a lifestyle..

      HI Mrim,

      Wow Colin — very inspirational, very pragmatic, you have a wonderful way to take what might be a huge challenge, break it down into chunks, stay focussed and make the complex seem simple. Would love to connect personally on some of these things with you

      Truly inspiring. In a world that preaches and teaches competition and ‘me’ attitude, here you are sharing.It all seems very realistic and achievable. There is of course a great deal of hard work. You are the master of ‘swnliness’. All calm on top but the engine is working away underneath.
      Love to assist where I can and where you would want me. Love to Tor and the family.Speak to you soon. PeterG

      Hi Colin. I really enjoyed watching your video, and am full of admiration for you. I have absolutely no doubt that you’ll make a great success of your new business, and you’ve obviously invested a lot of time and energy in preparing for this new phase of your life. I met you at a pivotal time in my life 4 years ago when I was about to leave the NHS, and found your help and encouragement invaluable as I stepped out into the unknown to set up my own consultancy business. 4 years on II’m having a great time, and love the freedom and flexibility that working independently has given me. I have much to thank you for, and I wish you every success as you look forward into an exciting future. I look forward to continuing to follow your journey. With very best wishes. Janet

      Hey mi amigo Sander. Thanks for checking out my midlife maverick hood! Hope the family are well. cx

      Wow, you have really jumped off the cliff and got your wings whilst falling. Impressive. I am curious to see how the plan and what’s happened so far have transpired.

    28. Jan 22nd

      Colin – Just wanted to let you know I am VERY inspired by this video and your different websites. I recently read 4 Hour Work Week and have been wracking my brain with different ideas on how to live the life of my choosing. Your websites have given me GREAT ideas and motivation. I’m very intrigued about your business. I was wondering if you could share some more about that. Thanks for sharing all of the information that you do. You are truly an inspiration. : )

      Hi Casey. Thanks for the feedback. I loved the 4 hour work week by Tim Ferriss… mind expanding stuff! The purpose of is help SME’s with the management of their SEO and social media projects. SEO (search engine optimisation) was one of the first things I learn to help with my own sites and I quickly realised I could also help small businesses with what I have learned. Now I have many clients who I’ve helped get page one on Google and they are reaping the benefits of more business. Hope that helps.

      Hi Jemma, I will put a video out at the end of the year with my results. It will be interesting as I still feel I’m falling in certain areas but trusting the wings will be there when I need them!!!

      Colin – I can’t see your full reply to me on your site. Would you mind emailing it to me when you have a moment? Thank you so much : )

      I think 6 figure is difficult for me to achieve. I usually achieve lower six figure. But I am amazed on your motivation and plans to achieve earning a six figure income. Good luck to your plans.
