Hi there,

 

People do the opposite in a recession to what they should do.

They play it safe.

They stick to a formula that they ALREADY know has stopped working.

And, because they hold on to the old way, they end up losing.

And YET.

This is a time for creativity and brave ideas.

It is a time for rebirth.

It is a time for accelerating innovation.

You must learn to LET GO of what used to work.

To make space for what will work.

You want to come out of this stronger than you went in.

If you play not to lose, you mostly lose.

 

THIS IS A TIME FOR YOUR BEST IDEAS, NOT YOUR SAFEST.

Your ideas are NOW more valuable to your business than at any other point.

You CAN’T AFFORD to be busy.

You CAN’T AFFORD to be average.

You must think.

 

This conversation… Oh boy.

This took place at my workshop two weeks ago.

An amazing woman came up to me in between lessons, and she said:

"I just want to say thank you."

I said: "That’s my pleasure, but how did I help?"

She said she had done our online course, and she had learned how to do a BIG IDEA.

And she had just raised £1 Million for her business.

I said "That’s, (no swear words used, honest), cool."

I was secretly doing backflips in my head.

What she had learned is the importance of an idea.

 

Pause.

Reflect on that point.

She is NOW certain that ideas change everything.

All I want you to learn is the same.

 

CERTAINTY.

Would she now pay 100X for the same course? Of course.

Because she has CERTAINTY.

She had travelled on the journey to confidence all the way from self-doubt.

Life’s most beautiful journey, by the way.

From struggle to boom.

And yes, all fuelled by the power of her ideas.

HER IDEAS.

She learned how to do them; but she did the rest.

 

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

I had learned the power of BIG IDEAS from my old Boss at Saatchi’s – Graham Fink.

My office was opposite theirs. (He shared it with Jeremy - an amazing writer.)

I just watched them as they made one of the most famous TV ads of all time.

It put British Airways back on the map.

It is still today their most memorable advertisement. EVER.

Clue: BIG IDEA.

I called Graham over a year ago and asked him if he would consider doing an online course, and he said yes.

 

I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT.

You may have held back from doing this course a year ago, but this is the time when you need creativity and ideas.

This course is no longer an expense.

This is the way out of struggle.

This is the crossroads.

Do you stay where you are? Or do you get good at ideas?

The thing that will ACTUALLY change your business.

Hmmm.

If you believe ideas will transform your business, let me introduce you to a creative genius.

More awards than an IKEA bookshelf can support.

Golds.

Baftas.

He is one of the most awarded creative directors in the world, ever.

Fink Different. Creativity for Business.

Today we are launching an online course that could change your business in a remarkable way.

The course is called Fink Different.

It will transform your business because it will bring a super-power into play: Creativity.

The host of the course is one of the most awarded humans on the planet: Graham Fink.

(My lucky break was having him as my boss and mentor.)

Just read the testimonials below from last year.

Hope that was helpful and hopeful.

Creativity wins, especially in tough times.

 

Best from the west,

P.S. Fink Different - Creativity for Business closes 11:59 pm on Friday.
