He will then suggest slight adjustments that will make a huge difference and reap immense rewards in a relatively short period of time.
Having worked in both the public sector and private industry over the years, Brian’s assignments have brought him into contact with high level government leaders, influential Fortune 500 executives, sports and entertainment celebrities and high net worth individuals from around the world. No matter who it is Brian has been able to offer practical guidance and advice that has enabled them to save and/or make millions of dollars by focusing on the 5 P's (Philosophy, Process, Programs, Problem-Solving & Partnerships). In some cases, money was not even the issue, and the solutions sought and received were on a personal level.
‘Ah ha’ moments come from focusing on one critical factor – mindset! Your personal philosophy is the greatest determining factor in how your life (or business) turns out. The wind that blows blows on all of us. While you can’t change the wind, you can change the set of your sail. Whether it’s a business that is off course or a personal life trajectory that is off course, both can be recalibrated and brought back on course with just small adjustments in your personal philosophy (adjusting the set of your sail).
