More than three years ago a small group of experienced and at times successful guys from Australia, the UK and Singapore came together to share a dream. To build a new form of Media conglomerate in Asia – a business like no other before it – and in doing so succeed in China where the big media players like News Corp and FaceBook have failed.
The dream became a vision and the vision became a business. Christmases have come and gone and so have New Years and still we share the Vision but the business is not yet going.
We set out to raise a very large amount of money (several millions) based on a big vision with no track record….and that hasn’t been easy….damm near impossible at times.
But we are still ALL together and we have added to our team and in doing so our conglomerate has become even more impressive…..and the opportunity may even have become evn better as a result of hanging in and refining and re-defining our plans.
Along the way the toll of families, lives, finances and businesses has been enormous. In some cases Cars, Homes etc have been sacrificed to keep us going… But we havent given up and probably never will (or have to hopefully) and somehow we have continued to grow on less than a shoestring.
Next week after a meeting last week in London we believe (once again) the money will flow at last and 2016 will see the Vision become a reality.
As the year closes I want to thank all who have supported and stuck with me … and my partners …..its been very very tough …much tougher than we could have imagined….and tougher than most will ever know…… but we are on the verge of doing something special….something that can make a difference to the lives of many many people.
I suspect I wont be celebrating at Midnight on New Year’s Eve once again…. but I firmly believe I will be celebrating with our many supporters in the very very new future and for some time to come.
Thank you… and heres to all the Dreamers who want to make the world a better place!!
But first turn your dreams into a validated vision that others will buy into you can’t deliver much these days in isolation
May 2016 bring you whatever it is you are working to achieve …. But if you arent working at it 2016 will not be your year (again)!
The motivational piece from The Alchemist was a Christmas Gift from my very supportive daughter and business partner Nikki… I think she gets me!
