  • Go to where the opportunities are, don’t just stay in the one spot in the hope the opportunities will come to you.
  • Generating opportunities doesn’t just mean getting new leads, it involves look after previous clients as well.
  • Look outside of your normal office and see where there are other places you can go to network with people.
  • Find one location to begin with, get some sort of normalcy and routine rather than packing up in 2 days and travelling to the next place.


  • Meditation doesn’t necessarily need to be you shutting your mind off and sitting in silence it could just be you going for a walk and freeing your mind.
  • Go for a walk take yourself out of the box you have created and take a moment for yourself.
  • Procrastination creates anxiety.
  • Motivation needs to be fed daily it isn’t something that is going to be there just because you want it to.
