MASTER YOUR DESTINY

23 02 2011

Manifesting wealth and abundance should be easy.  However too often people are full of fear and anxiety and if you’re constantly worried about how things will turn out you are closing off the ways that money and abundance can actually come to you.

You shouldn’t have to struggle to make money or attract wealth.  Having more money makes your life easier and allows you to do many of the things you want.  But if you don’t have the wealth you want, if you’re not making the kind of money you want, if you’re not manifesting  wealth and abundance then you’re simply not sending out the right messages to have more of what you want.

Those messages are your thoughts and beliefs.  And whatever thoughts and beliefs you have about money and manifesting wealth will become a part of your life.

Unfortunately most people don’t believe they can make the kind of money they want and they don’t believe that they can be wealthy.

Why does this happen?

Well at some point in your life you developed a negative thinking pattern, This pattern was planted in your subconscious mind when you were younger and in all probability you’re not even aware of it.  You just know that you believe more in lack than you do in abundance.  That no matter how hard you try you just can’t ‘get ahead’.  That you don’t deserve it, you’re not worthy of it, that you have to struggle to succeed – and so you never achieve.

What’s happening is that your subconscious is creating your life based on those thoughts and beliefs.   You’re putting out the wrong signals.

Your subconscious simply follows your beliefs.  Negative or limiting beliefs about money have no purpose… they don’t let you get ahead or live the life you want and they certainly won’t let you become wealthy.

Those who succeed and enjoy their lives control their fear, they eliminate anxiety and panic by changing their focus and by thinking of how things will or can work out.   They have a belief in themselves and what they are worthy of.

If you’re crippled with fear it’s because you’re thinking of how things won’t work out or what could go wrong.

You don’t have enough information to be confident so your mind immediately focuses on what could go wrong.  No wonder you get scared.   Anybody would be crippled with fear if they focused on what could go wrong all the time.

So what do you do?

Change your thoughts.  Start thinking about how things could work out.  Push your mind to do things differently.  As your mind goes into a negative tailspin you feel trapped, you’re worried, uncertain, then the panic takes over, the fear cripples you and the anxiety overwhelms you. And if those worries are down to money – not having enough, not earning enough, not enough customers, whatever it might be, the more you think like that the worse it will become.

It’s not a way to live.

So what can you do?

Focus on what you want.  Think of how you would like things to turn out and fill your mind with thoughts of success.  If you stray, if your mind comes back and give you negative junk that leads to fear and anxiety change those thoughts.

Your subconscious mind will then pick up on these new thoughts and allow you to overcome the fear…  eliminate the anxiety and get rid of the panic attacks.

You need to eliminate and change any negative beliefs about money even if times are tough or if there’s a recession.

The truth is that in a recession people still make money.
People still find jobs in recessions.
Businesses do grow.
New businesses form during tough times.

Keep Changing those negative thoughts and limiting beliefs. Get rid of them.

How?

I help people change their negative thoughts and limiting beliefs with tapping, NLP and hypnotherapy.

When you have a thought that supports you those beliefs change .  It really is that simple

Getting rid of those negative beliefs once and for all, empowering yourself with positive powerful thoughts, doing this on a daily basis (the way you do when you worry !) going over and over things is THE ONLY WAY to bring changes in your life; bring you the life you want rather than what you’re struggling with.

Focus on what you want.  Feed your mind positive thoughts and create positive beliefs about making and building wealth quickly and easily

Negative self-beliefs thwart your self-image and cloud and shroud the light within.  You cannot live like that – You need to let your happy loving nature shine; let it out and be free.

In doing so you will find your life will change in all areas, and you will begin to manifest all your dreams with ease and start experiencing more of the love, happiness and successes you desire and deserve.

The truth is, you always deserve, whether you believe it or not, so you may as well believe it! Because…

The more you believe you deserve it all, the more you will receive

I can help you change those beliefs; I can help you move on, improve your life, make more money, give you confidence and self belief which will in turn bring you a brighter future.

Remember what you think about today becomes true for you tomorrow.

Get rid of those limiting beliefs before they cause more damage to your life.

CHANGE THE LIFE YOU HAVE FOR THE ONE YOU DESERVE

Anne Milton MP – Shadow Health Minister Officially opens Million Impossible’s Entrepreneur School Guildford

30 10 2009

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Anne Milton MP for officially opening our Entrepreneur School in Guildford last night. The event was held The University of Surrey – Continuing Education Centre.

Bradley Chapman and Anne Milton MP Shadow Health Minister

The agenda for the evening was a follows:-

6.00pm – Registration and Meet & Greet Event Attendees

6.30pm – Welcome from Bradley and introduce Guildford Entrepreneur School Leader

6.40pm – Agenda and introductions by Peter Hartley (Guildford ES Leader)

6.45pm – Opening of the school by Anne Milton, MP (Shadow Health Minister)

6.55pm – “Looking Ahead” by Peter Hartley

7.05pm – “My Business and how I got there” – Speaker Dr Andrew Lucas

7.50pm – Coffee Break, Group Networking and Meet the Invited Professionals

8.30pm – Session Close

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.

Why does Bradley Chapman think that he can help Increase the chances of Entrepreneur success rates?

16 10 2009

Bradley Chapman came up with the idea of creating a UK and potentially a World leading Entrepreneur based support business back in 2007 after he had been through some major personal adversity after breaking up with the mother of his two children. Bradley had been involved in a wide range of businesses and had worked 6-7 days a week for most of his working career but found himself not being able to find one place that he could go to that would provide him with a cradle to the grave entrepreneur support network to help improve his chances of business success. He found that there were singular specific facilities available on the market but not one all encompassing entrepreneur based support service.

Million Impossible’s online network was born during November 2007 with zero members – but Bradley had a big dream that one day the company would become a world leading Entrepreneur Authority. Million Impossible have now progressed the business and offer both online networking (Million Impossible) , face to face networking (Entrepreneur School) and publish a business Magazine called (Raw Business Magazine) which features high profile Entrepreneurs like Rachel Elnaugh, Duncan Banatynne, Doug Richard and Max Clifford – The journey Is far from complete!

With the launch of Entrepreneur School Chelmsford in June 2008 and with 10,000 registered online members the business now has 10 ES school areas planned to go live during October and November 2009 with UK wide coverage planned by the end of 2010. Each school is run by an ES leader, who is also a Million Impossible online networking member. Attendance levels range from 15-30 people per event (held every two weeks) . As the exposure grows and the word spreads so will our attendance levels….

But that is not the final picture!

The company plans to open 3 regional Entrepreneur training centres during 2010 – one in the north, one in the midlands and one in the south. The residential training centres will be called “Entrepreneur School”. The schools will be syllabus lead with experienced and established entrepreneurs teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to start up their business (safely). There will be a second tier syllabus for companies established under 2 years and a third tier master class for established business.

The Overall Aim!

To provide start up business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs with comprehensive start up knowledge using an initial training course. Upon leaving the course they gain automatic membership to an online network of 10,000 online contacts (continually growing) to do business and network with. The third benefit is Entrepreneur School local events which provides the Entrepreneurs with face to face networking opportunities – In fact everything that a business would need to start, grow and succeed!

Indeed cradle to the grave… or as Bradley suggests “Dreams to Reality”

Mind over Matter – Does it Really Play a Part in an Entrepreneurs World?

14 09 2009

During the last four months I seem to have gone to hell and back. Two back to back burglaries in our current building, delayed lease on our new building, staffing issues, increasingly challenging revenue against cost targets. My recent workload is reaching unbearable levels which see me working crazy hours through the night and then missing parts of the day from being disorganised. From merchant service issues to dealing with the stigma of post bankruptcy…

Does mind over matter really play a major part in my day or with the business being nearly two years in have we reached the point that so many businesses fail to overcome?

I think that it is probably a mixture of the two. Mind over matter is very important as each day we face ultimate challenges that seem Impossible to overcome and equally we seem to have reached a point where we need to consolidate our brand and our values.

I have made so many mistakes with Million Impossible and our offshoot businesses that you can often forget to look at your successes. I know that I have learned a great deal in the process and indeed added to my existing skill set but at what true cost?

Time money, energy, passion and personal and business relationships could have all been cultivated and nourished much more beneficially. I find that I shield my true thoughts and try to be strong for others that are perhaps not as strong and experienced commercially – yet I preach that by not showing your true thoughts is a weakness, so am I being weak when I should be strong or am I actually being strong?

For those that have followed the Million Impossible journey you will know that we have come such a long way and have had to face and overcome many hurdles, some of which you know about and some you don’t.
I am thinking to myself right now “MIND OVER MATTER – MIND OVER MATTER” my goal is to create the Worlds leading Entrepreneur Business Networking website and Entrepreneur based publishing company “EVERYTHING ENTREPRENEUR” a website that entrepreneurs come to from all around the world because we have something that they want……….

I am also thinking selfishly to myself that my old job gave me so much money. I was employed at a corporate level. I was brought in to turn businesses around and after six months I had turned them.. Luxurious cars, great home, meals out, great clothes, holidays and money to treat my loved ones……….. but that would be just too easy and I do not think I would enjoy it anymore.

I have come this far we have a good team, a good product and an exploding market and all we need now is a little investment, some decent operational controls, a steady growth plan and we could achieve our ambition.

It is in my experience exactly these of wobbly thought patterns that see businesses and the entrepreneurs that run them FAIL and that is why I must continue, I must not falter an I must find a way.

So yes I do believe that MIND OVER MATTER plays a massive part of an Entrepreneurs business journey.
Do you have any thoughts on mind over matter, is there a commercial term for it and would you like to present a seminar at one of our Entrepreneur Schools to au audience of willing listeners. I would also like to features this person on our web site http://www.millionimpossible.com under our Mi features section.
Please email me at Bradley@millionimpossible.com or leave a comment.

Million Impossible – The online entrepreneur network

Million Impossible (Mi) was initially borne out of the business career and experiences of facing adversity of its Managing Director, Bradley Chapman. The original concept has now come a long way and, with a limited
amount of financial resources, we have managed to build the online networking framework from which we plan to launch Entrepreneur School.

The Mi network is not too far away from reaching 10,000 members. We have many planned changes to the website, which will take place over the coming months. We intend to increase the user experience of the site as we move toward becoming the UK’s leading online and face-to-face networking business.

During August, we have a high-level web developer joining our business, who will be fully focused on developing Million Impossible’s current offering. In November we will once again be exhibiting at our third Business Startups event, which is held at London Olympia.

We are planning to move to new Chelmsford premises in August, which will allow us to increase our headcount. The new building will be our home for two years and can hold up to 40 employees.

Million Impossible TV is on the horizon and we are also considering going live with office web cameras to create a reality business TV website, similar to Big Brother. It may be quite controversial, but equally it could turn into a big PR opportunity.

Introduction to Entrepreneur School

With so many businesses predicted to fail within the next two years, it is now more important than ever before to create support groups and business networks that can offer help and advice to UK entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneur School will offer a mix of business education and business networking opportunities. We will welcome aspiring entrepreneurs, seed businesses, start-ups and established businesses, inviting them to become a member of a single school or a number of schools.

Entrepreneur School (ES) will launch in Chelmsford on 8th July 2009 and this initial school will run fortnightly events on Wednesdays at Shire Hall. The first two events in Chelmsford will be focused on moulding and perfecting the event layout, content and agenda.

Entrepreneur School - Busy Networking

Business Networking at it's best by Million Impossible

There will be two types of attendees at each event. The first will be people who wish to learn about business in general by listening to the guest speakers and networking to increase their business contact base. The second type of attendees will be entrepreneurs who are interested in running and hosting an Entrepreneur School event themselves.

How will it work?

    Any member of Million Impossible, free or fully subscribed, can apply to head up, run and lead an ES. During our launch night and over the forthcoming weeks, we will look to appoint an Area Leader within each geographic region. We intend to grow to UK-wide coverage over a 18-24 month period.
    Each Entrepreneur School will be able to grow its own member base and numbers will vary between groups of 15-50+ depending upon the Area Leader’s activity, motivation and the support they receive from Million Impossible account managers.

    Each Entrepreneur School will initially follow a pre-determined format, which will then be moulded and shaped by the management team at Million Impossible and the ES Area Leaders in a closed forum on the main Million Impossible website. Area Leaders will also be actively involved in an Entrepreneur School open forum for members to engage people in online post-event networking. This will enable maximum cross-pollination of ideas and both member and business referrals.

    Adversity to Success by Networking and Learning about Business

    Adversity to Success by Networking and Learning about Business

    The agenda for each event will be something like this:-

6.00pm – Meet and greet
6.10pm – Welcome from the Area Leader – ES group update
6.30pm – 1st speaker/ tutor
6.50pm – Buffet and drinks & group networking
7.10pm – 2nd speaker/ tutor
7.30pm – Group networking/One-to-one networking/Referrals
8.00pm – Networking to close at 8.30pm-9.00pm

Entrepreneur School is both for people aspiring to start and run a business as well as experienced entrepreneurs, who are already running a business. We all need help, support and guidance at every stage of our business – whether it is with issues surrounding company formation or a management buyout or even Stock Market flotation. We can all give something and we can all learn something.

The aim of each Entrepreneur School event will be for members/networkers to learn all about aspects of being in and running a business, to pass on business referrals, to network and increase their contacts base. Members will also be able to offer help and support to budding and aspiring entrepreneurs and existing businesses, mentor and tutor each other, and talk about business successes and failures to raise and build the confidence levels of individuals who would not normally use face-to-face networking to build their business.

Entrepreneur School face-to-face networking events for networkers will be charged at about £15-£20 + VAT per event, which will include a light buffet and drinks in many schools. Multiple booking discounts will also be available.

Entrepreneur School leaders who choose to head up and run an ES area/event will pay a sponsorship/license fee and will initially run their area for 6 months or 1 year, with an option to extend. School leaders/sponsors will benefit from an income opportunity, raised profile and marketing status with Million Impossible’s online network, ES Group marketing and Raw Business Magazine exposure. Each Entrepreneur School head sponsor will also become a moderator and use Million Impossible’s business forums as an extended communication/business link with all Entrepreneur School members to talk, discuss, share and contribute online with their peers.

Each Entrepreneur School head sponsor will also be able to use Million Impossible’s online community chat as an extended communication/business link and live discussion with all Entrepreneur School members to deliver a live webinar/discussion on varying business topics.

Entrepreneur School attendance numbers are only limited by the venue size and interest of the number of members wishing to join and get involved. There will be recognition for the Entrepreneur School leaders who grow their schools/networking events to 25, 50, 75 and 100 members.

Entrepreneur School is an amazing online and face-to-face networking opportunity for all UK businesses. When I first came up with the idea of Million Impossible, I never dreamed I would know the people I now know and have experienced the things that I have.
It makes me so proud that our members are starting to engage and help one another. I hope that, with your help, Entrepreneur School becomes a UK-wide success story of leading business networking events.

The UK roll-out

    The first area to launch (Chelmsford) will be known as the ES head office branch. It is our intention to roll out Entrepreneur Schools in as many UK towns as possible. Generally, business owners will travel 10 miles to an event. In Essex, for example, we could quite easily have 10 additional Schools:

    Chelmsford
    Loughton
    Basildon
    Southend
    Harlow
    Waltham Abbey
    Grays/Thurrock
    Ilford
    Romford
    Colchester
    Clacton

    We plan to have between 5-10 Entrepreneur Schools in each county and roll out to all 50+ counties as quickly as possible, including taking in Scotland and Wales and Northern Ireland.
    The UK roll-out will be fully supported by Million Impossible and Raw Magazine, both online and in print, through business forums, newsletters, business articles and press releases.

    Who can attend?

We welcome anybody that has an interest in business, whether it be as a student, an aspiring entrepreneur, a start-up business or an established business owner. We also welcome speakers, business tutors, business coaches in any industry and any business sector – everything from undertakers to IPO specialists.
Retired entrepreneurs are also welcome, as well as anyone who is currently employed but thinking about making the entrepreneurial journey.

Anyone can attend any meeting at any Entrepreneur School – but they must at least be registered as a free member of the Million Impossible Network. Area Leaders will administer each event and be responsible for signing members in on an attendance sheet. The greater number of free/fully subscribed members that attend, the greater the online and face-to-face networking activity. Word-of-mouth promotion and referrals to join an Entrepreneur School event will be the key to our success.

School networking members

    Everyone can learn something from someone else. Some people are experienced at networking while others are perhaps new to the networking scene. Your Entrepreneur School leader and networking colleagues will make you feel comfortable and warm and will introduce you to other members in your group. After your ES event, you have the option to go online and visit the Million Impossible website to engage with others on the business forums, download useful documents, read inspiring stories and browse the profiles of thousands of UK-wide Million Impossible members.

    Entrepreneur School face-to-face networking events for networkers will be charged at about £15-£20 + VAT per event, which will include a light buffet and drinks in many schools. Multiple booking discounts will also be available, as will lifetime unlimited use VIP passes.

    School Area Leaders

Area Leaders will be responsible for the co-ordination and running of their area event. Each School will be run according to specific procedures, while also allowing entrepreneurial flair to develop. Regional ES meetings are to be held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings between 6pm and 8.30pm. Running the networking events across three days allows flexibility for members who wish to visit other Entrepreneur School groups. Million Impossible MD Bradley Chapman will be touring different regional events to add value wherever he can to each region.

Attendance fees will be about £15-£20 + VAT per event, depending on whether food is supplied. The head of the ES will welcome everyone to the event, give details of the evening’s line-up of speakers and run through how the event works for newcomers.

Two or three new speakers should address the attendees at each event, with their contributions lasting no more than 10 minutes each – 30 minutes in total. The topics should be varied and educational, representing great value for the attendees. Speakers will be booked in advance and will be promoted by Million Impossible’s online network, newsletters, business forums, business articles and Raw Business Magazine, which is published bi-monthly both online and in printed editions.

The speakers for an event will be allowed to put up a table and a roller banner to promote their services after they and other speakers have delivered their educational presentations.

From about 7.15pm, the event moves into a networking format, during which attendees have the opportunity to talk and discuss any aspect of business with any other attendees. The team at Million Impossible will manage all payments and process all orders for each School. Area Leaders will receive a commission for their School, paid monthly in arrears. We anticipate that each event will vary from 10 to 50+ members, depending on the activity, networking skills and energy of the Entrepreneur School leader.

We will supply each Area Leader with two/three pop-up banners promoting Million Impossible’s online network and one promoting ES with a ‘sponsored by’ logo for their own business.

Each Entrepreneur School and the businesses owned by the Area Leaders will appear in a double page spread update for ES in each edition of Raw Business Magazine. Leaders will have their own forum section on the Mi business forum through which they can communicate with other Area Leaders. Leaders will also have a leaders-only business forum to discuss strategy.

The Million Impossible sales team will generate sales for ES by communicating with businesses in each geographic area. We will offer single, monthly and annual subscriptions for each School and the Area Leader will also be responsible for their own networking among his or her existing contacts. Some venues will cater for 10, 25, 50 and 75+ members, so different Schools will require venues that are cost-effective and scalable to enable each area to expand.

Further exposure will come as a result of being an Area Leader through Million Impossible’s continual and ongoing promotion of ES to our internal and external members. There is a wealth of opportunity – in return for a nominal fee and a little preparation and personal effort – for ES to help you to grow your own business and the team at Million Impossible, County Heads and Area Leaders to contribute to an ever-growing skill and knowledge base.

Learning about business and developing commercial acumen

    When we started Million Impossible, we undertook a lot of research and most entrepreneurs told us that they would have liked easier access to help, guidance and advice and access to funding when they first started their businesses.

    Why should so many people fail in business and suffer the heartache or personal loss? Entrepreneurs take risks, of course, but they do not always consider the worst possible outcome – that they could lose everything. If we can, in any way, impart our own knowledge and help others, then we might actually be able to increase the chances of success among other entrepreneurs.

    We believe passionately that if we unite as entrepreneurs, we can achieve anything together. Perhaps this is just a romantic notion – but perhaps not.

    Entrepreneur School business education will be delivered by our members and by guest speakers who wish to appear at our UK-wide events. The event speakers will deliver knowledge and experience through 10-minute presentations. Each School will have one or two speakers per event.

    We will prepare in advance a list of speakers who will be appearing at specific ES events. ES members who have 6- and 12-month passes will be allowed to multi-pass and can in theory attend any event of their choosing, depending upon their thirst for knowledge.

    The seminars delivered by the speakers can be filmed and placed on Mi Tube for future reference (there will be a nominal fee and pre-booking for video filming should this be required).

    After each ES event, business education can continue online through Million Impossible business forums, community chat and live chat functions. Fully subscribed Mi members will also be able to browse and engage other Mi Impossible members across the country through the member database.

    As the business rolls out, both Million Impossible and Entrepreneur School leaders and members will be able to source and secure further speakers for future events. Each School will also enable members to request a speaker position.

    Entrepreneur School Speakers

Entrepreneur School speakers will deliver a 15-30minute presentation about their field of expertise. The member guest speakers at any event will be entitled to bring a pop-up banner, sales literature, which will be handed out to all attendees as they arrive, and sales assistance, if required, to speak to School members about their business after the speaker sessions.

The content of their seminar should be on the business area that they cover and focus on an educational delivery that offers great takeaway value for the ES members. After the seminar, during the group networking session, members will be able to approach speakers and discuss their business requirements. No other literature apart from business cards may be handed out during the event in order to keep the focus on the evening’s subject.

Once again, the guest speaker’s seminar can be filmed and placed on Mi tube for all UK-wide members to view. Speakers will inevitably pick up business from their seminars – both from their own School and, with Mi Tube coverage, potentially also from Million Impossible’s wider online network, which extends across the whole of UK and some international regions.

Bradley Chapman, Managing Director of Million Impossible, shares his vision…

Bradley Chapman explains Entrepreneur School

Bradley Chapman - fighting for UK Entrepreneurs!

Entrepreneur School – Making the dream a reality

    I had a vision at the end of 2007 to create an online and face-to-face networking business that offered help and advice to Mi members. It was perhaps a romantic notion that we could change the way that people think about the way that they grow their businesses.

    Many of you will know that giving is a great pleasure. Knowing that you have helped someone in some way is actually quite comforting and if you believe in karma, you should receive help in return in the future.
    Many of us use the phrase “I’m too busy”. I have changed my thought process completely and now, wherever possible, make the time to listen to people’s needs. Of course, I cannot do everything – and nobody can. That is why we now need your help to make Entrepreneur School something very special.
    With your help, support and guidance, together we might just be able to build a UK-wide network of Entrepreneur Schools that helps both aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs, so that they do not have to be alone.

    Quarterly entrepreneur seminars

We intend to run quarterly one-day seminars in various parts of the country. The seminars will consist of business workshops and key note speakers.

One person, One business, One million pounds

    I cannot share this information yet. I will bring you all up to speed as soon as non-disclosure agreements have been signed. What I can say is that if we go ahead with the project, the end result will be that one business will win £1million to invest in their company (or retire!).

    Entrepreneur School / Million Impossible TV

We have a long-term goal to create a TV channel and are currently in very early stage talks with a media company.

Becoming an Entrepreneur School Leader

    Million Impossible will offer extended support through ticket sales, marketing and brand awareness and we will assign an account manager to work with you, as well as an admin support team.

    You can run more than one area on different days of the week if the model is working for you and your business. Area Leaders will be responsible for the co-ordination and running of their specific area event. Each School will run according to specific procedures, while also allowing entrepreneurial flair to develop.
    You can opt to run an Entrepreneur School for either a 6- or 12-month term.

    We anticipate that each event will vary from 10 to 50+ members, depending on the activity, networking skills and energy of the Entrepreneur School Leader. Each Area Leader will be supplied with two pop-up banners promoting Million Impossible’s online network and one promoting ES with a ‘sponsored by’ logo for their own business.

    All Schools and the businesses owned by their leaders will appear in a double page spread for ES in each edition of Raw Magazine. As the number of Schools grows, so will the number of pages. When volume grows significantly, we will move to our own Entrepreneur School network magazine.

    Leaders will have their own forum section on the Mi business forum to communicate with other Area Leaders. They can also use a leaders-only business forum to discuss strategy.

    The Million Impossible sales team will generate sales for each School by communicating with businesses in your area. We will offer single, monthly and annual subscriptions for your School and you will also be responsible for your own networking among your existing contacts.

    Further exposure will come as a result of being an Area Leader through Million Impossible’s continual and ongoing promotion of ES to our internal and external members. There is a wealth of opportunity – in return for a nominal fee and a little preparation and personal effort – for ES to help you to grow your own business and for the team at Million Impossible, County Heads and Area Leaders to contribute to an ever-growing skill and knowledge base.
