Interdependence Day

March 31, 2009

XL NationToday is Interdependence Day, also called National Day for XL. Today XL Results Foundation embarks on the next chapter of the journey. XL 1.0 steps up to become XL Nation 2.0.

Every nation has a Declaration of Independence and so a focus on national interest. XL Nation as the world’s first global nation will have a Declaration of Interdependence. It will have a focus on global interest that is inclusive not exclusive. This means that our ability to sign federation agreements with charities, learning institutions, other organisations and eventually other nations as either service providers or program partners will be an important part of our growth in influence and scale towards achieving World Wide Wealth.

Now you know why we are here: to achieve World Wide Wealth.

Within XL1.0, by 2008 the amount of value being delivered was phenomenal – over 2,000 events around the world, content, learning delivered every week in stories, magazines, 24 hour radio, videos. The problem was most even the most active members would only ever get to 5% of this value, which made it a very inefficient and ineffective use of resources. In XL2.0, the focus of XL Nation should be 100% on Effective Giving.

When Roger Hamilton & Dave Rogers started the XL Results Foundation in 2001, their vision was a way to achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals without needing to rely on governments or other institutions. What better way then bringing entrepreneurs together could have achieved this? Today the history continues and we are creating the next chapter.

So, where are we now? Well today, the Bali Convention takes place and about 10% of the Founding Members Citizens of XL Nation are there to sign the Declaration of Interdependence. The new flag will presented and several speeches will inspire us even more. Our XL Vision 2020 is growing and more is being donated every day!

What can you do to step up? Join XL Nation now and start giving effectively! If you need a hand, let me know…

Now it’s time to celebrate the birth of a new nation! Party time 🙂

Enjoy every day,

Return to Bali?

October 23, 2008

I am returning to Bali!

Next to a couple of interesting meetings with local entrepreneurs, I am also meeting Roger Hamilton again. My radio show is running smoothly on XL Radio these days and I hope to meet other XL life members as well.

I am in the process of looking for partners who can help me build a platform for seminars, training, coaching and public speaking in Indonesia, especially Jakarta or Bali. Not only event companies, but also event locations, training companies, consultants and sales driven organisations would suit me perfectly. If you happen to know anyone interested in lifehacking or life coaching, just connect us please! You are doing us both a favour 🙂

My visit is limited, but focused : arriving friday 24th October until the 2nd November.

Stay tuned for updates later on…

Enjoy every day,

Wonderful Wealth

June 8, 2008

Yesterday I came back from Wealth Dynamics Experience and what an experience it was!

I met several new friends, learned interesting lessons and played several insightful games. Roger created magic once more and I also got a chance to step up a couple of times. As a Creator I was asked to come to the front with 2 others and share creative ideas. I also got a chance to answer several questions in front of the public and I was picked for my “Opportunity Knocks” about life hacking. My colorful shirts also attracted lots of people who came to talk to me. Mike Southon agreed to become my Mentor! I also knocked several people of their socks by giving them examples of life hacking tips & tricks. Yihaa, another very successful event!

It’s unbelievable what it’s like when you are in flow… do try this at home 😉

Enjoy every day,

Wealth Dynamics Experience

June 3, 2008

You all know I am XL Life Member, right?

Tomorrow till friday, Roger Hamilton organizes another Wealth Dynamics Experience in London. Of course, I’ll be there 😉

Anyway, I already told you about Wealth Dynamics, but during this event you discover your own personal path of least resistance – the one that fits your natural strengths and weaknesses. Discover what has led to your successes and failures, and how to personally make wealth creation faster, easier, more fulfilling and fun.

Interesting quotes:

“Money doesn’t make money. People make money. And it’s other people who will make your money.”

“Wealth isn’t how much money you have. It’s what you’re left with if you lose all your money.”

So, I’ll be investing in myself the next couple of days. What about you? Did you know that you are your most valuable asset? Isn’t it worth it to invest in yourself? Of course! So, what’s keeping you?
Enjoy every day,

Entrepreneur Business School?

April 17, 2008

Roger Hamilton’s Entrepreneur Business School (EBS) is one of the best events I have ever attended! Next to creating a magical atmosphere with world-class mentors, I connected with likeminded entrepreneurs from around the globe. These strangers at first became intimate friends for life. They share my passion to contribute to make this world a better place. On top of that, we experienced lots of fun, reflected on intimate, critical moments and learned an incredible number of lessons for life! Everyone wins at EBS! It’s definitely the next step forward in my life…

This is how my summary or quote if you like about EBS in Bali would sound like in case someone would ask me 🙂

I can recommend this event to every entrepreneur who is looking for an extra edge. It doesn’t matter if you are looking to grow your business or network, or need extra people, maybe a sounding board, target new countries or markets, it’s all there if you want to…

Next to the business stuff, this WOW-event made me grow as a person too! Magic happens at EBS! I’ll be back 🙂

Roger, you ROCK!

Enjoy every day,

Entrepreneurs Business School in Bali?

April 1, 2008

Yes, I am in Singapore writing this blog…I am on my way to Bali for a well-deserved vacation and a very promising Entrepreneurs Business School (EBS) with Roger Hamilton. As an XL Life Member, this is definitely the place to be 🙂

I will be attending his 4-day program, not only to learn more about better business models, but also more importantly to network and create the foundations of a fruitful partnership(s) with entrepreneurs from around the world.

Of course, you are entitled to my feedback later on!

In the meantime, enjoy every day!
