We all need a little push at times

20 12 2010

Sometimes we all need a little push. No matter how self-motivated we claim to be.

It just goes to show that when you are motivated, wonderful and amazing things can and will happen to you. I would like to thank Mark Weeks for his kind words and for letting me know that my videos, blogs and motivation efforts are having a positive impact.I am so glad that the webcast helped you.

Please feel free to read Mark’s full article here

Thanks Mark

Regards Bradley Chapman

Sometimes we all need a little push. No matter how self-motivated we claim to be.

I got my ‘little push’ from Bradley’s podcast about seizing the day. And I vowed to make the most of this day and every day for that matter, untill I reach my goals.

So after a dreary morning onsite in the rain where my current contractor is refusing to take responsibility for their actions; no change there! I returned back to my office  more jaded than I had started the day, to say the least.

After an hour and several cups of coffee I remembered that this was my day, my opportunity to move forward and claim what was rightfully mine.

But then I started to slip into my comfort zone once more as I watched the Valentine Palmer Raw TV podcast on presentation skills; which is great by the way. I started thinking I’ll use these techniques tommorrow when I feel more with it.

Then I started to buzz once more like I had in the morning, I think the coffee had kicked in! Bradley’s voice echoed in my head, which can be quite infuriating when your nice and comfy; with a full list of excuses. Eventually I took to the phone. Taking a deep breath and following Valentine Palmers lessons; even though I was talking to prospects I had been chasing for months for work my attitude had changed slightly. After four calls I was rewarded!

Thank you Action Coach Peter boolkah from Bradley Chapman

30 09 2010

I have now had three meetings with my Action Coach, Peter Boolkah and we have not even started to uncover what we will achieve together.

Peter has helped me look at myself before anything else and I have to say I feel great. The business has had its ups and downs and as I am sure, you will all agree – That is part of being an entrepreneur.

Two things he has helped me with so far

1 – Am I happy in what I am doing?

2 – Is my work life balance in order?

Peter has made me look at the business holistically, taking emotions out of the decisions I am making. He also suggested I read a book called “The Secret” which has already influenced my life in a positive way.

I am no longer fighting the universe, instead learning to go with the flow and accept what comes my way and by accepting that good things have started to happen.

I feel more energised and more comfortable with what the future will be. I spent so long fighting against positive forces by telling my adversity story over and over again. Instead, I should have been talking about and sharing my aspirations.

It is not just Peter that I have to thank for this positive change in my life but also some other talented Action Coaches who have also inspired me with their words, stories and belief and I would like to thank them personally:-

Mandy Hildred – (North Yorkshire)
Clive Sury – (Yorkshire)
John Davison – (North Yorkshire)
Nick Ruddle – (Essex)
Ian Christelow – (Suffolk)

Thank you all for reminding me that man on journey who can get lost in the day-to-day hubba of running a business can find himself – As long as he reaches out and accepts that some things have to change.

If you are looking for an Action Coach then stand by for our 12 page interviews, information and promotion of some of the UK’s highest results performing Action Coaches in the next edition of Raw Business Magazine. I have even had the great pleasure of interviewing Brad Sugars, founder of Action Coach Worldwide, who, I am pleased to announce is our front cover interview feature.

I liked Action Coach so much that I now have my own coach. Peter you are amazing! Thank you for your time, belief and support during these few weeks. I love you man.

If your business is based in Essex and would like to talk to Peter to see how he will help your business then call the Boolkah hotline on 07773 773 560 or visit his website at

If you would like to find out who is your nearest coach then call Ian Christelow who is the UK Master license holder on 01284 701648. Equally if you are looking to move into coaching then call Ian and you could on your way to changing your life and many others.

Thank you Action Coach – “Once I was blind and now I can see”

Lots of Love

Raw Business offers Entrepreneurs online networking facility

25 08 2010

Following the announcement by Coalition Government Minister Mark Prisk that the funding for Business Link is to be halted, Raw Business, a private sector online business networking and publishing company, has made the decision to open its network to the whole of the UK business community free of charge.

Raw Business was founded in 2007 and aims to provide business owners and entrepreneurs with the tools, support and guidance they need to make their business a success. The online network aims to bring entrepreneurs and business owners together, enabling them to forge strong, lasting business relationships and is based on the most popular Social Networking models.

Historically, the network has had free and subscription based membership options but following the announcement by Mr Prisk, Raw Business MD Bradley Chapman has made the decision to open up the network. Bradley told us “Business owners and entrepreneurs can sometimes feel very isolated and not everyone is good at everything. A support mechanism where the experiences of other business owners can be shared, despite any rivalry, can really help to make the business community and the UK as whole, a better place.”

These sentiments were echoed by Government Minister Simon Burns who, in a statement to Raw Business said “The services offered and the opportunities presented through companies like Raw Business can potentially be a vital lifeline for business and entrepreneurs alike.

With austerity measures being introduced in public sector funded projects such as Business Link, it is good to see that the private sector is ready and willing to come together in these tough times. “

As well as the online network, Raw Business also publishes a monthly business magazine title raw Business Magazine written by business owners, for business owners but also including interviews with some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs. The magazine is now in its twelfth edition, has a print run of 15,000 and has both printed and digital versions.

Entrepreneur School Guildford Launch Night

Anne Milton MP – Shadow Health Minister expressed her appreciation for entrepreneurs and the strength and courage that it takes to succeed and indeed bounce back from adversity. She also stressed that during any financial recession that the number of Mental Health cases rises significantly and she confirmed that it is a wide spread problem along with obesity and other mental and physical health issues. Anne was pleased to see a school for Entrepreneurs developing and would have loved to have been able to utilise a school for politicians when she started out her political career.

I was first to speak at the event and was pleased to share my own story of adversity from bankruptcy and beyond with all the attendees explaining my idea, how far we had come and I shared our aspirations of creating Regional Training Centres for Entrepreneurs for the future which might help decrease the business failure rates in the UK.

The Guildford School is being headed up by Mr Peter Hartley who is highly regarded and has a wealth of business and ex MOD based work experience. Peter is also passionate about the SME sector and particularly entrepreneurs. Peter faced his own personal adversity after caring and for his late wife who sadly passed away after being diagnosed with Cancer.

Peter is determined, kind, considerate and unmistakably determined and focused on helping to build Entrepreneur School now and in the near future. I am also pleased to say that he is now my friend.

With a BSc in Physics from Imperial College, Peter started in Business as a Graduate Engineer, collecting various post-Graduate Certificates and an MSc in his spare time. Peter spent some 37 years in corporate business, spanning most roles from basic Design and Development through to Test, Production, etc, before moving into Systems and Programme Management. The opportunities to travel around the world, supporting Marketing and carrying out contract negotiations, were used to great advantage. Having reached Cabinet level and 4* level contacts, he finally left international corporate business and took the Independent route, achieving the success and the work/leisure balance he wanted, with a Science and Technology Consultancy company.

Separately, the growing Business Consultancy, which he offers in conjunction with Entrepreneur School, is intended to provide support to others, whether via Tuition, CVs, Documentation, ICT and Websites, Assistance to find Investors, Commercial Analysis, Business Planning and Reviews.

Peter is currently working with SMEs to achieve major contracts (in excess of GB£40M) with the Primes; he is also setting up a complete Internet based business package as a Turnkey system for a Farmer who wishes to sell meat products directly to the public, providing ‘worthy individuals’ with CVs and websites, and still carrying out some Tuition work (the future lies in the Education of the young).

Peter’s hobbies include most Country sports, including fly-fishing (when he can catch the flies!) and breeding and working his gundogs. His garden is a place of continuous development, and he is now seeking a new house for a development project.

The Guildford Entrepreneur School speaker was Dr Andrew Lucas born in Melbourne, Australia in 1949, Andrew gained his Bachelor’s (Honours) Degree in Mechanical Engineering in Melbourne and later, his PhD in Aeronautical Engineering at Queens College, Cambridge University, UK.

After spending some 20 years in the UK and Australia, in a wide variety of high technology posts, including Associate Director of the Australian Artificial Intelligence Institute, Andrew formed his first company, Agent Oriented Software (AOS) Pty. Ltd., Melbourne in 1997. From that beginning, Andrew then extended his activities across the UK the USA. Andrew has over thirty years of experience in various engineering roles in aerospace, software, robotics and defence.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Peter Hartley for putting so much energy into the night, Anne Milton MP for opening the school, Dr Andrew Lucas for delivering an inspiring and inspirational speech, the attendees, Robert Copping and Jeremy Webb who are also Entrepreneur School leaders and the team at MI for staying focused and dedicated during this very testing time and of course my family who keep pushing, driving and supporting me – without you none of this would be worth fighting for.
