Okay, bugger! You’re probably wondering, “how on earth did you end up here.” I know, I’m wondering the same thing. Nobody wanted this page here. It kind of happened organically. So, let’s get this over with.
Here’s the thing. I’m an independent writer, researcher and speaker. What that means I write or record stuff. You read or listen to it. It’s that simple. I’m not employed by a big corporate or under contract at a magazine or newspaper, I’m definitely not obligated to some pompous publisher. I’m just a guy on a quest to inspire a million other quester leaders to make a small or big difference. Why? Well this should be a remarkable century, but it feels less and less remarkable every day. I’m worried, and perhaps like you, sense that if people like us don’t dare to strike out and find new ground, it will all go to the dogs! I’m not saying by connecting we will end global warming or world poverty, but I’m a big dreamer and believer that through the power of business and passionate people we can achieve some pretty damn remarkable things.
I’m very fortunate to be in this position. But it’s not an accident, ten years ago after being chased by a bloody great big shark on a scuba diving trip, I had an epiphany and realised I was not Bear Grylls! So, I moved to London to seek adventure from behind the safety of a laptop. With the support of some great people, I started using my curiosity and ingenuity to help people better understand the world around them. And, here's the important thing. We are living through a rare moment of exceptional opportunity and peril - The ancient Greeks called it Kairos time - and, what the world desperately needs are more big thinkers and dreamers. I guess because you are here and continue to read you are one of those dreamers, a quester like me who wants to make a difference. Great!
There’s no middle man here. I write stuff you like. Then I say, “would you mind giving me a bob or two to like, buy a snickers bar and underwear for my kid?” And then remarkable people like you do. Because you’re splendid and you like to see amazing, independently-published, thought-provoking, inspiring, no-bullshit content that enriches and gets you ahead in life. So, you decide, “Hey yeah, this guy Dean deserves a snickers bar and his kid some jocks” and then you give me enough money to go buy a snicker. That’s how it works, and that’s kind of how it should work. There is no such thing as a free meal and nor should there be. I imagine.
But, this isn’t a charity or handout. Nor do I believe a writer should grovel for money. If you support me and my work, you should get something in return. And so, I’ve put together a lot of remarkable content for people who are willing to shell enough money to for me to buy snicker bars each month. In fact, it’s a hell of a lot of value for what you pay.

Inspiring, thought-provoking content: Whether it’s your quest to nail that next pitch, project or promotion, get a slightly better crappy salary/job, get the kids out of bed in the morning and to school on time or even to rid the world of an alien invasion (online gaming of-course, although one day we will discover alien species), this is the place to find the inspiration and support to strike out and find new ground. Life is a bit like the cockpit in the picture above. Loads of dials, levers and pedals to pull and play with and we don't even know what all of them do. Let's dream together in a safe sandbox, The more we explore the more we will discover.

So, if you’ve ever seen me speak, read a book or article of mine and thought, “Holy smoking Mary, that’s remarkable!” If something I’ve written has ever inspired you to try something new – a business, a project, a job/career, a wife/husband, a passion/hobby or look at something differently and ask the question: “That’s rubbish, how can we do it better!?” Consider throwing me a bob for a beer.
That’s all it is. A few bob to feed Dean, his wife and his kid and make Dean write more Dean stuff. It allows me to keep doing what I do best. And it keeps things simple. No middle man. No ads. No bullshit. Just me yammering on and you reading and (hopefully) liking it and being inspired by it.
