BBF134: How to build a secondary income stream with a limited time commitment with Matt Miller   


What a great story we’ve got for you on the show this week. Matt Miller’s situation got so bad he was turned down for a payday loan, but he turned it all around and became a prolific franchiser in a marketplace that literally any of us could enter.

After 10 years as a pilot and a number of false dawns in the corporate world, Matt read the legendary book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ and became fixated on the idea of earning passive income. He eventually carved out his nice in gumball machines and school fundraising, and today his business is going from strength to strength.

Read on for some of his great wisdom:

**We should all strive to generate income without having to exert ourselves.

**It is possible to have a fruitful business without sacrificing time with family.

**Hire a coach! It totally transformed Matt. Elite sportspeople have coaches so why don’t we?

**When you hit your major goal, find a way to be challenged to aim for another one.

**Do what you can to remove yourself from the hub of the business. If Matt had never done this then the business would have ground to a halt when he had a heart attack.

**The speed of the business is determined by the speed of the leader.

**The most important investment anyone can make is in themselves.

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

**The power of passive income

**How to create flexibility in your work

**How Matt was inspired to give something back to children

**The ins and outs of franchising

**How to scale a franchise

**How Matt’s business survived when he was absent recovering from a heart attack

BBF135: Turning Entrepreneurs into Authors with Jacqui Pretty   


Ever wanted to write a book but you don’t have the time and you don’t know how to get it out there?


Our guest this week will help you get over this. Jacqui Pretty has made it her business to realise the ambitions of entrepreneurs big and small by helping them get their books to market, so it was great to speak to her to get her insight on the marketplace. Read on for some great tips, and as you’ll see, it’s easier than you think…

**You should see a book as more than just something that needs to sell. It is a low-risk way of clients getting to know you and so is a great tool to help you upsell a more expensive service.

**Don’t worry about giving away too much in a book. By delivering genuine value you earn the right to upsell your services.

**Being the author of a book automatically gives your voice credibility in the marketplace.

**You only need to put in the work to produce a book once and then forever it can serve as an advertisement for your business/service.

**Always create an outline of your chapters and then drill down further into headings and sub-headings. Sitting in front of a blank page is a surefire way to waste time and to lose focus.

**Consider a print-on-demand service. This can help you hedge your bets when it comes to publishing.

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

**How a book can help you stand out from the noise

**How long it should take to write a book

**The ideal length of a book

**Is it worth using a ghostwriter?

**Ebooks V ‘real’ books

**Different publishing deals

**The power of a distributor

**Is Amazon worth it?

BBF136: Building an 8 figure business with Tony Grebmeier   


Have we got a colourful guest for you this week! This man had actually written his own suicide note, but here he is today inspiring all who listen to him. Tony Grebmeier’s story is just incredible: he’s the founder of Ship Offers (an Inc top 5,000 company); by the age of 18 he’d had a grand total of 16 jobs; and in 1996 he was ahead of the curve and founded a web marketing company in Silicone Valley. Oh and he’s also a radio presenter who does an awesome line of voice impressions!

Tony’s had it all, lost it all, and then made it again, and importantly he’s learnt from these ups and downs how to do business and life in a sustainable way. The show is worth listening to just for Tony’s life story, but he also gave some great tips about how to manage yourself and others:

**Sales in business is about giving people a story to understand what the product or service you’re selling will do for their lives

**Build relationships before you try and sell anything

**Find people for your business who have the skills you don’t have

**Coaching matters: Tony spends over 100,000 per year in coaching and mentoring

**Make the effort to build up people’s self worth, and work with them rather than above them

**Asking is a sign of greatness, not a sign of weakness

**A business owner has to stay in the trenches with their team

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

**Tony’s incredible story

**The importance of sales to business

**The value of mentoring

**Journaling routines

**The ‘braindump exercise’

**The power of the right mindset

Cannes - Douleur de Loach, gloire d'Almodóvar   


L’accent du nord de l’Angleterre et l’oeil de Ken Loach ne déçoivent toujours pas. « Sorry we missed you » suit une famille de Newcastle, dont le patriarche se lance dans le business de la livraison de colis. Sans franchir la barrière du misérabilisme, Ken Loach dresse une fois le plus le portrait d’une société néolibéraliste ubérisée, à la frontière de l’esclavage moderne, et la résistance de ceux qui luttent pour maintenir du lien social au travail, en famille. Le monde va toujours aussi mal, mais cette fois-ci il semblerait que le réalisateur, qui s’est battu toute sa vie pour des causes sociales, ait perdu un peu de son espoir. 

Almodóvar court après sa palme et espère bien la décrocher avec « Douleur et gloire », autoportrait d’un cinéaste qui se retourne vers son passé. Une tranche de vie où se retrouvent des bribes de « Volver », « Tout sur ma mère », « La mala educacion ». Presque un testament ? 

Quelques pépites repérées au passage : le documentaire « Etre vivant et le savoir » d’Alain Cavalier, celui de Patricio Guzman, « La cordillère des songes » , la comédie « The Climb » de Michael Angelo Covino, « Une grande fille » de Kantemir Balagov et le film d’animation pour adultes « J’ai perdu mon corps » de Jérémy Clapin.

BULK SECTOR PROSPECTS POSITIVE BUT CHALLENGES AHEAD The bulk sector is navigating its way out of the doldrums but market correction has come at a price, delegates attending Bulk Terminals 2018 learned last week. Speaking in Hamburg at the annual conference of the Association of Bulk Terminal Operators, Frachtcontor Director Frank Grone said that while the bulk segment is slowly but steadily working its way out of the doldrums with a positive cash flow, he reminded delegates that 60mdwt was scrapped in 2015 and 2016 at “ridiculous prices”, while financing banks took serious “haircuts” leaving bulk carrier owners faced with a complete wipe out of their invested capital.  The trigger for recovery, he said, has been a healthy growth in demand, which in 2017 was in order of 4% with 3% expected for this year. Fleet growth was moderate in 2017.   Congestion and slow steaming have been two ingredients for recovery as it kept tonnage off the market. Slow steaming is still the flavour of the month, but a 3 to 4 knot increase in speed could kill the upturn, Grone warned. As far as bulk commodities are concerned demand for iron ore has been the major driver and the iron ore market should increase by about 2% this year and continue upwards with suppliers in Brazil and Australia ramping up production. Demand from the Chinese market is still there he said, and locally produced product is nowhere near the quality of imports. Coal is also a market driver with a 7% increase in Chinese imports and Indian imports up 6%. The overall increase in seaborne coal trade is 3-4% which is in stark contrast to Europe where imports have fallen. China, India, Japan and Korea import approximately 900mt of coal per year compared to the two biggest importers in Europe – the UK and Germany – which import approximately 110mt annually. The music, he said, is “clearly being played in the Pacific Rim”. The challenge for European terminal operators is the fact that Germany now uses 36% energy derived from renewables. The fact that Australian coal port Newcastle is now planning an ultra large container terminal to cater for a projected massive increase in movement of containerised cargo may be an indication of market attitudes going forward. In summary, Grone said growth looks positive and fleet growth manageable but there are a number of challenges.  These include the trade conflict between China, the US and EU, which, he said, will affect the shipping market negatively. “The market is not only driven by hard facts, but also by sentiments”. While the immediate impact of restrictions on soya bean trades may be positive in the short term for South American suppliers, ultimately China will have to turn to the US for supplies, Grone believed. Trade barriers are generally negative in the longer term, he added. Another area of uncertainty is what will happen as a result of the global sulphur cap due to come into force in 2020. Commenting on the options available to meet the requirement, Grone estimated, on the basis of current use, that 66% of all fuel burned will have to be switched by 2020 to comply with the rules. Owners can either continue to burn high sulphur fuels and risk fines and port state control detentions and trade bans, or install scrubbing technology or switch to gasoil, he said, adding that scrubbing technology is expensive while switching to gasoil may also be expensive as the price will be substantially higher. Grone told ABTO delegates that suppliers are likely to reduce stocks of high sulphur fuel because of falling demand. Only 1200 owners have decided to retrofit scrubbers and there are 60,000 vessels that need to be dealt with. For the remainder of vessels needing to move to low sulphur products, delivery can be expected to be tight. The upside for tanker owners is that there is likely to be movement of gasoil from the Middle East, he said. The challenge for shipowners will be how to pass the costs on to charterers and to realise the competitive advantage of installing scrubbers. Another strategy may well prove to be partnerships between charterers and owners of ships with scrubbers. Grone’s market appraisal followed a key note speech from Axel Mattern, CEO of the Port of Hamburg Marketing Association, who informed attendees that Hamburg has now received the green light to dredge and rebuild the entrance channel to the port. He explained it has taken 17 years and “many battles with regulators” to get the go ahead for work on the Elbe, which up until now has meant ships with a beam of 15m or more have been unable to pass each other and have had to wait to enter the port. “Hamburg is back in the game”, he said. In his closing remarks, Ian Adams, ABTO Chief Executive, commented: “Bulk Terminals 2018 had a very broad agenda, but a common theme running throughout the two-day conference was that market near-term prospects appeared to be positive, which is good news for everyone involved in the bulk industry. ABTO continues to provide a valuable service to its members and to the industry as a whole."

Sting: parte dalla Sardegna il Tour Italiano 2018   


Sale l'attesa per il terzo concerto in terra sarda di Sting. Dopo le esibizioni allo stadio di Sassari nel 1994 e all'Anfiteatro romano di Cagliari nel 2001, l'ex cantante dei Police presenterà il 26 luglio alla Forte Arena di Santa Margherita di Pula i brani del suo ultimo album, “44/876”.

Gli altri appuntamenti italiani: 28 luglio Roma, Auditorium Parco della Musica; 29 luglio Verona, Arena; 30 luglio Napoli, Etes Arena Flegrea e 1 agosto Taormina, Teatro Antico.

Compositore, autore, attore, Gordon Matthew Sumner, in arte Sting, è nato in Inghilterra, a Newcastle, nel 1951. Fin dalla gioventù dimostra un talento innato per la musica. Mastica un po' di pianoforte, inizia a suonare la chitarra e il basso elettrico e si innamora del jazz. In breve tempo formerà la sua prima band, i "The Phoenix Jazzplayers". Proprio ai tempi dei Phoenix nasce il soprannome “Sting”.

Scelto il nome d'arte, il ragazzo di Newcastle entra in altre formazioni jazz come i "The Riverside Men" e nella "Newcastle Big Band" prima di lasciare l'ensemble con tre musicisti e fondare i "Last Exit" di cui è il leader e cantante.

I “Last Exit” ottengono un buon successo e decidono nel 1976 di trasferirsi a Londra in cerca di un contratto discografico. È in questo periodo che Sting conosce il chitarrista Andy Summers e il batterista Stewart Copeland, rimasto impressionato dalla presenza del cantante – bassista durante un esibizione con i Last Exit.

E qui inizia la leggenda. Copeland convince Sting a fondare i Police con il chitarrista Henry Padovani. Dopo poco tempo lo stesso Padovani viene sostituito da Andy Summers. Nasce così un power trio destinato a cambiare la storia della musica degli anni '70 e '80.

"Outlandes D'Amour", "Reggatta De Blanc", "Zenyatta Mondata", "Ghost in the machine", "Syncronicity" sono i nomi dei capolavori scritti dai 3 e che hanno influenzato generazioni di musicisti negli anni a seguire.

Tra il 1985 e il 1986 Sting decide di intraprendere la carriera solista. Il primo lavoro senza i Police è “The Dream of the blue turtles” ed è ancora legato al jazz benché contenga due perle “pop” come "If You Love Somebody" e "Russians". Un disco a suo modo storico e che sarà la base fondante del successivo doppio live "Bring on the night".

Il secondo atto dello Sting solista è invece "Nothing like the sun". Le atmosfere si fanno più malinconiche e sognanti e dal disco escono gemme come "They dance alone" e "Fragile”, diventata in breve tempo un classico del repertorio.

Bisogna attendere il 1991 per assistere all'uscita di due album completamente autobiografici. Il primo è "Soul cages", trainato dalla Hit "All this time", il secondo è "Ten summoner's tales", contenente 3  indimenticabili successi come "If I ever lose my faith in you", "Fields of gold" e “Shape of My Heart”, uno dei brani musicali dedicati al mondo del gaming entrati nella storia. Ma soprattutto tre brani che saranno imprescindibili in ogni esibizione live degli anni successivi.

Dopo anni intensi passati tra produzioni discografiche, colonne sonore e ottime prove da attore, Sting pubblica nel 1996 “Mercury Falling”, un lavoro irrequieto e nervoso che segna una svolta rispetto alle opere precedenti e che rappresenta il punto di partenza per “Brand new day”, il capolavoro del '99.

Con Brand new day il musicista inglese si da alla sperimentazione più pura e miscela con abilità stili all'apparenza inconciliabili come il canto gregoriano medioevale, il pop africano e la musica country americana.

Sarà l'inizio dell'era più “sperimentale” di Sting. Nel 2003 esce “Sacred love”, album che contiene collaborazioni con artisti hip-hop e con la figlia di Ravi Shankar, il maestro di sitar indiano. Il 2006 è invece l'anno di “Songs from the Labyrinth”, disco per voce e liuto scritto a quattro mani con Edin Karamazov.

Il biennio 2009-2010 sarà estremamente prolifico. Nel 2009 Sting pubblica “If on a Winter's Night” e nel 2010 Symphonicities, un nuovo lavoro in cui vengono riarrangiati pezzi dei Police e del repertorio solista con la collaborazione della Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Dopo disco uscito nel 2016 “57th & 9th”, lavoro che segna per l'artista un ritorno al pop/rock dopo oltre un dieci anni, Sting è tornato in questo 2018 con un lavoro scritto a quattro mani con Shaggy. Un album, 44/876, anticipato dal primo singolo "Don't Make Me Wait" che vuole celebrare uno dei generi più amati dall'artista inglese, il reggae.
