Episodes

The Three Birthdays

In this episode, on the night of his 50th birthday, Gavan reflects on birthday celebrations, or not, that have marked his progress through life. It can be easy to have huge expectations for significant birthdays but is this what its really all about? Gavan’s birthday hasn’t turned out how he expected it too but because of how he feels about life now and his capacity to look for the positives this time it’s all about the reset and a little reflection about the journey to get to this point.   KEY TAKEAWAYS I remember my 21st birthday because I didn’t tell anyone – no one knew about it. On my 25th birthday I was so out of it I fell asleep in the toilets of the restaurant and then set off the alarms when I woke and tried to leave. It culminated with me shouting at the police from inside ‘don’t shoot I’m a trainee solicitor! Despite well-laid plans to spend my 40th birthday in New York with my wife the reality of being an entrepreneur saw me flying to America on my on to complete essential training to progress the business. My 50th birthday was to be a perfect celebration, I’m happier than I’ve ever been but it didn’t quite work out again but for this birthday I can happily reset and celebrate tomorrow. After everything I’ve gone through in life, there is nothing like finding a positive in a negative situation. However, small the positive it can be enough to keep you moving forward. No matter what happens, no matter who you are meant to be or who you are meant to be with, when something goes awry you can always find a positive.   BEST MOMENTS ‘I like being the one at other’s birthday parties without the responsibility of being the host’ ‘He couldn’t believe that I hadn’t told anyone and thought I’d deprived others because there could have been a big celebration for everyone to enjoy’ ‘I will reset and I will celebrate my birthday tomorrow’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

No Better Time To Audit Your Life

It’s easy to get wrapped up in the day to day and lose sight of the long-term goals so doing a regular audit of your business and life is a great way to get back in alignment with your goals and stay on track for success. Gavan reflects that taking the time to analyse where you are in your journey, your alignment to your goals, whether you are enjoying it and the impact on you of those on the journey with you are what creates an audit that makes a real difference. We all get out of alignment and a framework for what we are working towards is the key if we want to be more and really hit the highs.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Doing a full audit on your life and goals should be done at least twice a year because it’s easy to become misaligned in your life. Part 1- It all needs to be aligned Where do you want to be in 3 years, 5 years? what are your goals? Use a traffic light system to grade your weeks’ activities getting rid of anything that doesn’t add value. Part 2 – You need to enjoy it Every entrepreneurial journey will have some sort of sh#t you don’t want to do Set the short term, medium-term and long-term goals that will give you an appreciation of the process the journey itself You have to create a framework for what you are working towards Part 3 – who is on the journey with you? You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Look closely at who you are spending your time with You need to find people who are aligned with your aspirations You’ll come up with answers that will surprise you but an audit will help you find your true path and success.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Every entrepreneurial journey will have some sort of sh#t you don’t want to do’ ‘Analyse what you are doing to see if it is aligned with your goals’ ‘We want to be more and hit the highs’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

It's The Biggest Trending Hashtag But What Does WFH Mean For You

The tectonic plates in business have altered and people are currently WFH but should this continue? Is your business on the right track to take advantage of the opportunities that are coming? If you are an employer what does WFH mean for you and what will it mean for your employees? Gavan looks at whether WFH will become the new norm and what every business needs to think about and focus on if they want to make it work. He reviews the positives, possibilities and the potential challenges moving forward. One thing is sure, things are not ever going to be the same because the world has moved online, the question is, are you ready to take advantage of the opportunities that are coming?   KEY TAKEAWAYS The new normal is working from home (WFH) but can it work for you? Mindset – increased isolation could lead to depression which will be easier to mask during virtual meetings. Mental well-being will be key. Company culture – how tough will it be to develop this when people are in their own homes, will a blended approach will be the best approach? Flexibility – there will be increased demand and some desires will be aligned for both employers and employees. If you want to work from home you need to be able to deliver. Property costs – over time commercial property maybe repurposed. Commute – not doing the daily commute would be positive but people need to use the reclaimed time to do something productive. Childcare  - It could be worth using space for a creche to encourage employees back into the workplace. Learning – keep a record of your learning from this unusual time. Everyone has a responsibility to take the good things forward. The world is your business opportunity – the world has moved online so opportunities are truly global. Hacks and tips – eat the frog first every day, be productive, set daily goals, produce but don’t consume too much, be grateful for everything you have in your life.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Maintaining a good company culture will be more challenging but vital for cohesion and success’ ‘How productive have you been? What have you achieved?’ ‘Those who adapt, are those who will be the winners’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Even Mother Theresa Got Trolled, Don't Let Them Stop You Producing Content

Gavan shares a passionate message about the trolls and the gas lighters and why you should never ever let the fear of them stop you from getting your message out there. The truth is they are part of the journey and only come after you if you are making a difference and impacting on the world. As we navigate our way through a very different world you have the opportunity to share your message globally with more people than ever, don’t procrastinate get out there and get started now.   KEY TAKEAWAYS This is an opportunity to make a difference from your own home, explode your reach and your message at this time. People are worried about criticism during these times but everyone is unique and has something special to bring the world. You may be afraid the of the trolls, and the gas lighters but you must get your message out there. We all have quirks and this is what makes us special. These things are the things that make you unique,  have the fortitude to own who you are - it is what will make you successful. Sharing your quirks shouldn’t be the main part of your content but amongst the main message, this is what makes you stand out. You need to have the ability to post your own truth, the fear of criticism means people change and post what they think others want to hear but people like those who speak their own truth – this is what will resonate with others. Just get on with it, the trolls and gas lighters will always come when you are making a difference. You cannot let the fear of what others might say stop you from being you. Trolls only raise their heads when they are jealous because you are making a difference and making an impact.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Stick your hand up if you have a little quirk, these are the things that showcase who we are’ ‘The only obstacles are the ones in your mind’ ‘Go away and do something f#cking huge’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Forget The Pity Party, Time to Think Strategically in The Crisis

Gavan is looking at the long term and discussing what he is doing with one of his businesses ‘The Change’. He shares what they are working on with their founders and explains why it’s important to only take enough time to blink before then being prepared to get on with it in a crisis.  As venture catalysts then venture capitalists, bringing a transformational agreement that identifies the gaps, ‘The Change’ are continuing to develop strategy, and business plans along with personal development and mentorship so their start-ups are ready. This is the beginning and those entrepreneurs who have a long-term vision, motivation, ingenuity and can add value are going to be the most successful in the future will you be one of them?   KEY TAKEAWAYS Your pity party maybe a few days or a few weeks but the quicker you get it over and done with the quicker you can move on. How quickly you can pivot will depend on where you are on your journey and your experience of dealing with problems, how quickly can you respond to the situation? Whether you are an employee or employer we all need to get through this together. Make sure you establish and maintain routines that involve connecting with everyone. This is a money-free world so what can you do that sets you apart? If the only struggle you are working on is your own struggle then you won’t be providing enough towards the collective good. Your triumph will be in helping others and you must look outward not inwards. It’s easy to win when the times are good but now is the time to be a wartime general. I’m looking at the next ten years as my horizon and you should too. This is the beginning of a new ten-year run and those who can add value and work with ingenuity will have the greatest advantage. Mindset, motivation massive action have never been more important. It’s a great time to start a business. It’s time for entrepreneurs to rise up and take up the opportunities.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We started analysing all our investees to see if they could offer the solutions needed in the coming months and years’ ‘We are proactively trying to get ahead of what’s going on’ ‘What we do away from the cash is what we believe sets us apart and makes us special’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Rise Up & Seize The Opportunities Of These Desperate Times - We Need Leaders!

Gavan takes a look at the opportunities and how you can stand up and seize them as a leader in these unusual times. You cannot as a business do nothing and there are already leaders shining through with their content and connection. As an unprecedented number of us access social media this is an opportunity, like no other, to provide content that makes us laugh, cry and learn something new. Join the leaders, get creative and in your niche provide the content that connects people because ultimately it’s the leaders who will be the winners.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Rather than focus on the fear try and put this aside and focus on your mindset, on being a leader. More people than ever before are on social media and watching TV, there is a captive audience. This is your moment; this is your opportunity people are crying out for content. Take advantage of the eyeballs that are out there ask yourself what are you doing? You can’t go out but you can get creative and be a leader. We are going to come out of this at some point and the winners will be those who made us laugh, cry and educated us through their content during this unusual time. The way we interact has changed forever. You can’t stop doing everything and hope your business will come out the other side. It will be those that provide content during the lockdown will be those who will come successfully out the other side. You can choose to be a leader in your niche continuing to offer content in creative ways to connect with others.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Get the f#ck off your Facebook and look at the opportunities’ ‘Never in the history of mankind has an opportunity like this arise’ ‘It’s a captive audience’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website   Aaron Watson LinkedIn Gemma Orton LinkedIn   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

It's The Black Swan That No-one Predicted

The 2020 Corona crisis is an unprecedented situation on a scale that Gavan and the rest of us have never seen before – a Black Swan event – rare, with immense purity and unprecedented in the severity of its impact. Gavan looks at the different categories of people and their responses and shares his advice about what any entrepreneur should be doing right now – fighting, because hard work and perseverance are what makes the difference.   This is a black swan event of huge purity - an unpredictable event that is beyond what is expected and is as severe in its impact as it is in its rarity. Make a plan, set goals and focus on working towards those goals because collectively we can get out to the other side.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Different categories of people are becoming more defined as we navigate our way through the corona crisis Young people who do not recognise that every action has a reaction or consequence. The ‘Y’ generation who are experiencing the brutality of life for the first time. The mid-life group who’ve seen this shit before and are sanguine – they do what they are asked to do but see themselves on the other side. The boomers, consisting of those who’ve self-isolated and those who argue the war didn’t stop them so neither will COVID19. The politicians have been too slow in understanding the economic impact and the importance of developing an antibody test. It’s this test that will be the way out. Your business may need to adapt, you might need to market differently and pivot your services and products. Every difficult business decision that will be faced in the next few weeks. We are all in this together and people will understand if you deal with them fairly and openly.   BEST MOMENTS ‘It’s easy to be a good person when you are winning but much harder when you are losing. ‘Be gentle and caring with others, you don’t know what they are going through’ ‘The societal impact will be far greater long term and we need to be calm and keep an overview of the whole picture’ ‘There are the midlife group, like me, who’ve seen this shit before’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Northern Ireland is the Best Place on Earth Because....

Gavan is laying it on the line and explaining exactly why Northern Ireland is so special. Even though he has lived elsewhere in the world he always knew he would return to live in Northern Ireland because ‘the people make you feel like you belong’ and no matter where they are in the world these people know where home is.

How to Guarantee 100k Income Per Year in 12mths!

Buckle up and get ready as Gavan shares the 10 points you need to get covered if you want to earn 100k per year. You have to have certainty and the belief in yourself to come back from the challenges you will face but this mindset and choosing an industry where there is no setup finance required along with an understanding and total commitment to working at least 70 hours per week for 3 years are what’s required. If you can do this, you can earn 100k per year, listen in and get started on your journey!   KEY TAKEAWAYS Look at the marketplace you are going into – is it a red ocean or blue ocean market? Look at the bestin the industry currently, they will be making more than 100k per year What do they do that their competitors don’t? Look at the worstwhat is it they are doing? Comparing the best and worst will make it very clear what you have to do. Get close to the bestin the industry   - what can you help them with? And what can you learn from them? Market yourself– you need to make sure people know you are there, most businesses fail because no one knows they exist. Market yourself and your business at every opportunity. Work out your target figure and spend 10% on marketing. Care more about your customersthan you do yourself – if you want the referrals then you must put your customers first every time. Build your personal brand– people buy people and so building your personal brand is vital in the digital age. Learn from the best by looking at who is doing it well Consistency in everything you do– this can be easily overlooked but is valued by customers No one owes you anything– be grateful for any customers and welcome them in with a smile and amazing service. Make a planfor the 3 years and work backwards from this to know what you need to achieve at each stage. Get a good mentor to hold you accountable to the plan. Never ever give upeven though this journey will be harder than any journey you have taken before. Any journey worth taking will be hard.   BEST MOMENTS ‘The google reviews will tell you what people really think’ ‘Most businesses fail because no one knows they exist’ ‘Everyone wanted me to return to the bar but I refused, saying I could go into any business and earn 100k very quickly’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

So I went off Social Media for 1mth. Maybe You Should Do The Same!

For the first time in five years, Gavan took a step back from social media for an entire month! But how did it go? Gavan’s here to talk about his experience, how it’s affected his outlook on the world, the top ten tips around how you can do it for yourselves, and the lessons that we can all collectively learn in order to better ourselves by taking that break.  KEY TAKEAWAYS It may sound crazy, but taking a break from social media is as important a part of your social output as creating the content! If you’re constantly posting, then taking a break is a way to revitalise interest. Make sure you take a break for the right reasons. If you’re taking a break to regroup or work on something in the real world, then great! It’ll make you stronger. If you’re taking a break, make a clear statement to that effect. Remember not to make it a self-pitying declaration, but a simple, brief and positive farewell, with a promise that you’ll be back soon. If you’re going away to work on something big, then make sure you tell people that’s what you’re doing. Start the hype now! Start that breadcrumb trail now! Commit to it 100%! When you’re on social media, make sure you’re having an impact. If you’re taking a break then commit to it and use the time to its full potential. Why not devote yourself to something SO big, that you have no choice but to leave social media for a while? Dream big, think big, and create like crazy! If you’re not on social media, then swap something into its place in your life. Meditation is a great way of reconnecting with your mind and your senses. Let’s get the creativity flowing. Make a podcast. Write something. Play a song. Engage! Get out there and do something to add to the positivity we all need right now. If you’re spread across several different types of social media, think hard about how they’re returning value to you. Double down on the ones that are the most valuable to you and think about cutting the others loose.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Podcasting is like a traditional wireless’ ‘Producers win and consumers lose’ ‘I’m not trying to create a successful business. I’m trying to change the f**king world!’ ‘I hope your granny’s bunions are okay’ ’Some of you lot are half-in, half-out like the Hokey-Cokey’ ‘Go big or go home!’ ’Success in life comes from doing something properly' ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

You Can Have it All, A Family And A Stellar Career

Gavan is channelling a little of the spirit of Castro today, as he delivers his latest address on the subject of that place in which we all eventually end up: the future! As entrepreneurs, we are trying to create something wonderful and eternal, to act as our legacies to the world, and to our families. But what’s the point, if we can’t spend our present in the company of those families? In today’s show, Gavan shares with you the ways in which he overcomes these periods of overwork in order to spend more time with those precious children in our lives. There might even be a certain Robert Miles song that fits the occasion... KEY TAKEAWAYS Parenthood is about so much more than time with your kids. Time is the currency that so many attach to the art of parenting, but they’re wrong. How do you treat your kids? Are your children getting the love they need? These things are more important than spending that currency of “time”. Use extra-curricular time wisely, and choose activities that will light your kids up!  An evening meal together can bring the many different worlds in your family together. Couple this with gratitude, and each mealtime can turn into a get-to-know you session. Get your kids into a great routing around playtime, work and sleep. If you don’t show them the value of routine, it’ll lead to a lack of success later on. Diets are so important. Make sure you fill your children with the best you can get. Nutrients lead to better physical health, which leads to satisfaction and happiness. Show your children what success and personal fulfilment mean. Impress upon them, that hard work leads to satisfaction. Family time is far better when there aren’t any screens to distract you. Give yourself completely to them, but expect the same treatment in return.   BEST MOMENTS ’The impact he had was unreal’ ‘In my humble opinion, that’s a totally faux argument’ ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but do you pray together?’ ’The hard work I’ve done has left me even STRONGER than Helen!’ ‘Good parenthood is about so much more than time' ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

The Man In The Mirror Is Set Free!

‘I f-ing love myself and you should love yourself too’ Gavan asks if when you really look in the mirror ‘are you living your truth or someone else’s life? Increasingly in the world of social media people present a persona which may not reflect their true self – it’s what they think others want to see but it’s important to be authentic and true to yourself. Now one else but you can do the work needed to be the person you are proud of when you look in the mirror but the work required is woven throughout every episode of the speed mentor podcast, listen in and find out more.   KEY TAKEAWAYS There are many people in society who transmit a different persona to the outside world to the one on the inside, they are living a lie. This creates misery within the person and for those around them - It’s a recipe for disaster. The answer to this misery lies in the ability to be more open about your life, feelings along with your wins and failures. It’s vital we have permission to be more transparent and authentic and are not judged by ourselves or others. We must show the authentic part of ourselves to the world. If you want to have the success you are capable of and want to have a contented life where you love yourself and have a positive impact on those around you being the catalyst for change you must love yourself. If you look in the mirror and you don’t like the person you see, only you can do the hard work to get yourself to a point where you like the person staring back at you. You can only love yourself if you are leading an authentic life and telling the truth to everyone and most importantly to yourself. Only you can make the change that enables you to linger in front of the mirror, look in the mirror or look away only you can choose.   BEST MOMENTS ‘If I hadn’t lost everything in the property crash I might not have become my true authentic self’ ‘It was me peacocking because I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin’ ‘Go and look at yourself in the mirror – not to see your dimples and crimples but to look into your soul’ ‘Are you living your truth or someone else’s life?’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Fire Meets Speed! Pt2 of The Deep Dive

Welcome back! In todays conclusion of last weeks fantastic deep dive, Pete and Gavan talks us through his transition from law to property to his new project of venture capitals as well as talking us through some of his personal struggles with the economic crash in 2007 and how he took himself from losing everything to being the success he is today. KEY TAKEAWAYS Q. Whilst you were working in law  did you still continue your side hustles? A. I was up to 50 houses, what happened was in 2006, I had gone from double-digit yields to getting outbid all the time by people who had never been in property before and I could not face giving up the business side. My mistake was saying, I need to get into the chain earlier, to feed properties to these people so I bought four bits of land and I got my planning through but I made a few mistakes, signed personal guarantee and 14-day demand loans. My wife somehow ended up as a guarantor on one of them! That land lost 90% of its value and one of the local banks served me with a demand notice, so I then lost everything including my family home. Q. How has your parenting style changed over the years? A. My parenting style is based on looking back on mine. My Dad was so old school he wasn’t very touchy-feely or anything like that so you kind of fill the void. I work really hard so I might not have as much time as some others, but I work on that time and the love and connectedness is really important to me. I was to be able to have the social capital to see if they are going off the rails and be able to have a conversation with them and they will listen and I can help them. Whereas I would say my Dad didn’t have that social capital with me because that bond hadn’t been built to be able to help me when I needed it. Q.  What would it mean, someone saying you’ve got something you shouldn’t have? A. I don’t really know, I’ve got something about it. My wife sometimes talks about doing the lottery, and I say to her “you can’t do that, what if we won?” because then that would ruin the whole thing, somebody would be able to say we had it easy. Whenever we used to drive to school in my Dad’s car, there were only two of these cars in Northern Ireland and in one way it was lovely and in another way it was too much. I want to be able to say, everything that I have created with the support of my wife and my family has been created by us rather than come from someone else. Q. You come across as quite kinesthetic? Wanting to feel that that success is yours? A. That maybe comes from all the stuff I was discussing before my Dad. If I make a mess, I will be the first person to put my hands up and say “I’ve made a mess” and the way that you fail, people take shortcuts when they’re starting to fail. The way that you fail is important to how you’ll come back. Q. You mention being lucky, with your wife and kids. Where does luck come in it for you? A. Comparison is the thief of joy, but I say that because I know that I met her at the right time. I do the work just in time, to help myself. I use the word blessed maybe sometimes rather than luck. It is probably not luck, I do push away the success a bit sometimes. I don’t like people thinking that I think that I haven’t achieved it on my own. I feel blessed. Q. What drives you day today? A. The goal is to have an impact worldwide, the goal is to be the most successful entrepreneur in Northern Ireland. What is success? Success is the ability to be able to make a difference to other people. I am not money-driven, I took my first ever holiday for ten days last year. When I was a barrister I used to go on nice expensive holidays and drive a Porsche, now I drive an electric car and I am happy with that. I don’t go on flash holidays or spend lots of money, the difference is being able to make a difference, the ability to say I have helped the ecosystem in Northern Ireland. I wasn't Northern Ireland to be backed like it was in the industrial revolution. I want to help Northern Ireland get back to that, and I want to have a massive funeral. I want to have made an impact on so many people and to have changed Northern Ireland for the better. Q. Are you at your potential do you think? A. No, there is loads more potential. I actually had imposter syndrome for the first time ever at the tail end of 2019. There is new stuff that was done with venture capital that is so outside of my comfort zone. The amount of stuff that I have learned over the last year from startups and from other people that I am meeting and you’re going into those sessions, and you’re soaking it up like a sponge because you’re being exposed to new ideas about how you look at a business cycle or business plan. In terms of potential, the look was trying to raise ten million pounds for the change, and create ten billion from that and I am not that far in my journey in comparison to what we are trying to achieve, so loads more to come. Q. Do you see yourself retiring? A. No, I will die in the middle of a deal! The best deal ever. I was thinking about all the things I have done since I turned 45 for the first time, definitely not retiring no way. I’ve done a lot of heavy lifting, and I will tell you my theory and it was a moment of clarity “it is all about creating value, with the power of the mind”. That's true. The lifting that you do with your mind created more value than the physical stuff you do out there in the world. Q. When are you at your best? What is your peak performance? A. At the minute, it is a little bit crimped. I do love trying to show other people what they can achieve, but the intensity of what they were doing at the minute because it's all so new to me, meaning I am not at my best. It is coming back a little bit better, but at the minute I am not at my best because of the workload we have to find all these startups and investments to get the FCA compliance. So all of that and the intensity to deliver that is a pretty heavy burden at the minute. Whenever we get over these hurdles and were up and running, the best of me will be back, but the ability to never give up and to dig in, that is a strong part of me. I like to show people a strong leadership and I’m not sure if I have enough of that in me at the moment because of the pressures. Q. What do you think people's perceptions of you are? A. I know what they say about me, “He thinks he is just going to walk into the venture capital startup world?” “He just walks in and that's the way that he does stuff, he just pivots out of something else and he is just a shopkeeper”. What they don’t really know is that maybe their perception of me but that is not really what I am like. So I am listening to less personal development stuff at the moment because I am listening to stuff about venture capital and about startups because I know that I don’t know it. I may be a bit of a peacock walking it but I am trying to learn because I want to learn it. The people that are throwing the darts at me probably haven't had as much success as they think they should’ve had because they’re not prepared to do the work that I am.      BEST MOMENTS “My rise and success wasn’t lucked” “To have made such a difference, those other people say ‘I want to make a difference’” “It is all about creating value, with the power of the mind” “You can’t expect to go into something new and be really good at it”   ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Fire Meets Speed! Pt1 Deep Dive

Welcome to this weeks Speed Mentor Podcast! In todays episode, Gavan Wall is interviewed by Pete Lonton on the Fire in The Belly Podcast! Gavan shares lessons learned from his own entrepreneurial journey and talks us through his childhood, school years, career and what lead him to where he is today. Tune in to hear advice and insights that can help you in business and in life. Make sure to listen in next week for the conclusion, where Gavan and Pete talk transitioning from Law to Property, Market Crashes and rising from the ashes! KEY TAKEAWAYS Q. Tell us a bit about yourself. A. I’m from Belfast, Northern Ireland with a background in law, I then went into business about 12 years ago and ever since then I have been working at trading businesses and mentoring hundreds of other business people across Northern Ireland trying to bring my blend of high energy and go-getting. I have a number of businesses employing over 130 people and the latest project is in venture capital. I am raising a ten million pound fund at the minute and we’re looking to turn that into ten billion pounds over ten years. Q. How was school for you? A. I look back on my school years and there's absolutely no doubt that I had ADHD. Even though I was one of the brightest in the class, they ended up putting me in the remedial class to control my behaviour. It is amazing how many people become entrepreneurs after they have that kind of stuff happen to them. I was bright but there were a lot of control issues. I was really good at maths and I found those things easy, but once I felt that I had mastered something I was bored. Q. Did you get up to do your GCSEs and A-Levels? A. Yes, I got to do O Levels and then on to do a degree in law. My dad was in law so it was always thought that I would go into his legal practice. Two of my three A levels I didn’t even do for A-Level, I picked them out of a hat. One of those was economics, which I really enjoyed. At sixteen I asked my parents if I could leave school because I felt my A-Levels wouldn’t go very well because I was not interested and I really wanted to go to business college and learn things that were of interest to me. I was also running businesses out of school, I got a sewing machine for Christmas and I started taking in peoples trousers for them. I think from about the age of eleven or twelve I was also asking for shares in the stock market for Christmas. Q. You said that it was thought you would join your Dad’s solicitors practice, that is very non-personal language used to describe that? A. Yes, it is, I have processed a whole lot of pain surrounding that. My life felt like it started at 27, my Dad in old school, he keeps himself to himself. He didn’t force me to do law but it felt like that was expected of me but I wanted to do business. I did 5 years of law and it wasn’t really my thing, two weeks before I qualified as a solicitor my Dad came home with some beers on board and told me “Son, you’ll be paddling your own canoe I am taking an early retirement”. That was two weeks before qualifying as a solicitor, I discovered I wouldn’t be going into my father's successful practice. Two weeks later I was probably the first and only unemployed solicitor in Northern Ireland. So the whole thing about me using impersonal language about that is because it took me a long time to get over that. Q. Did learning come easy for you? A. I am probably a quick learner, but I get bored very easily. I actually look back and wonder if I was afraid to pit myself against the top members of the class. Those guys were machines and they were working really hard from day one. I remember on day one we came in and we had to write an essay, and mine was the best in the class, and that was a high point of my education. Whether I thought that I couldn’t keep up with them, I loved to be able to say I was the best at doing no work but still getting the exams. I was definitely the best at that. Q. It is interesting that you already had a perception of yourself at that age? A. No matter what, I am a survivor. If I knew at that stage I wasn’t going to end up doing law, I would’ve gone and done business studies but I didn’t know that so I repeated my A-levels for three days. I knew how painful it had been (to not get the grades) the first time around. Q. Do you remember your parents' perception at the time? A. My mum is my harshest critic, but only because she cares. They set a high bar, and I remember when I got my results for my A-Levels my Dad said: “Your wee brother Ben would’ve done better” and my brother was 2 at the time. It was tough stuff. They knew what I had put into it, which was zero and I had done remarkably well considering that I put no effort into it. Q. Do you think the writing was on the wall from the beginning? A. I was working at various things, I was full time in the civil service and ultimately I realised I was different from everybody else there. About 20% of the people there carried the other 80%, but everybody complained about hating their jobs. All these changes were coming and I was really excited and nobody else was and at that moment I wanted to leave, what they were looking to get out of like was not what I was looking to get out of life.   BEST MOMENTS “I think from about the age of eleven or twelve I was also asking for shares in the stock market for Christmas” “I picked two of my three  A-Levels out of a hat” “Everything I’ve done I’ve done it for me”   ABOUT THE GUEST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Treat The Two Impostors (Triumph and Disaster) Just The Same

In this episode, Gavan explains the significance of  Rudyard Kipling’s poem ‘If’ and the impact the line ‘if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same’ can have for anyone in business, on the journey from start-up to realising their goals. As the man trying to create a new Northern Ireland Gavan knows exactly what it takes to build a successful business and be the best you can, being able to not only survive but thrive is all about understanding how to respond to the highs and the lows, listen in and find out more.   KEY TAKEAWAYS We all know success when we see it it’s the creation of a legacy that’s greater than you that others benefit from. We are here to be the best we can be, to up our game, to get more wealth and achieve more than average. Good family relationships and a happy life are the baselines for all of us. Dealing with the highs and lows of business To survive and thrive you’ve got to stay away from the extremes of either good or bad. On the start-up journey, there can be extreme positives, such as a cash investment and real negatives such as an investor pulling out at the last minute. The key to dealing effectively with both positive and negative scenarios is to identify your long-term goals. If you have embedded long term goals then highs and lows are just small steps forward or back on the journey to achieve your goals and the success you want. No single event will determine the outcome and every situation is a learning opportunity. Neither a good day nor a bad day will define you. Be considered and responsible in your response to failure. Be humble, but stay hungry in your response to success and the good stuff. These situations provide a perspective on our lives and the journey being taken. The big gateway isn’t a big gateway at all,  it’s just the way through to the next challenge. You’ve got to understand and be able to work with the processes and understand the importance of gratitude for the little things that are a part of our daily lives to treat triumph and disaster the same.   BEST MOMENTS ‘There is something I do that helps me to survive and thrive – I know you’ve got to stay away from the extremes of either good or bad’ ‘Legacy is the creation of generational wealth, sporting or scientific achievement and wonderful works of art’ ‘Highs and lows are just small steps forward or back on the journey to achieve your goal’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.   But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Why Do I Sing And What Does It Mean For You

What have you got inside that you need to let out so it can find its place and its purpose?  Gavan is explaining why he enjoys singing and the importance of embracing your uniqueness as part of your very special superpowers.  You are only ever going to be average if you do the same as others so listening to how Gavan celebrates his uniqueness could help you to see the vital importance of being and doing you, not someone else or what you think that society thinks you should do.  This is an inspiring and entertaining episode that puts a spotlight on what is really important in life, listen in and be inspired.     KEY TAKEAWAYS  You might not realise but everything you say or do leaves an indication of who you are  Cynical people – are often those who think I’m pretending to be this bad at singing,  they are looking for an agenda in everything they see.  They take nothing at face value, everything and everyone is up to something  Those who take it for what it seems to be – the chief walrus singing and just larking about.  I see this group as the contented people – in reality, this is the optimum state of mind  There is a group who are smart -they don’t care what others think. When you release yourself from caring you can try new things you wouldn’t otherwise try and these are the things that make you unique.  They are your own superpowers but you hide them away because you are afraid of what others might think.  Embrace your uniqueness.  Let’s unite in our uniqueness because that’s our superpower, we are different you are only ever going to get average if you do what every other f#cker is doing.  The reason behind my singing on the podcasts is I don’t give a f#ck what people think, and it stands me in very good stead with everything I do.  I want people to like my material, to like me because I have a message of hope and opportunity and I want to share it with as many people as possible   When it comes to my singing I would like others to like it, but if they don’t, they don’t and that’s ok.  You do you, don’t do someone else, or don’t do who you think that society thinks you should do.     BEST MOMENTS  ‘It’s a miserable existence to be carrying that amount of suspicion about the rest of your fellow humans’  ‘What have you got inside that you need to let out so it can find its place and its purpose?’  ‘You have to find that thing and place for yourself’  ‘It was the genesis of my awareness, some people not being able to see the beauty in my singing’    VALUABLE RESOURCES   Speed Mentor Podcast  Gavan Wall website    Anchor App  Credit to Cat Stevens -"Morning Has Broken"    ABOUT THE HOST   Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.   Do you want success and abundance in your life?!   Do you want to hear how to achieve it?   Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.   After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.    But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.   He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Could a Plant-Based Diet Supercharge Your Outcomes?

Fruit and vegetables – you are probably not eating enough; Gavan has gone from food carnivore to plant-based vegan and in this episode reflects on the change and shares the reasons why he decided to make this change to his diet.  Gavan is someone who has a very restrictive pallet when it comes to new foods, only having rice and pasta for the first time when he was at university. The plant-based challenge began when Gavan really started looking at packets of ham! The gunk that is processed ham led Gavan to the decision that in order to change the diet of his family he had to be a human guinea pig and lead by example.  Listen in and find out all about the journey.     KEY TAKEAWAYS  I started with meat-free Mondays – I didn’t even know it was a thing!  I never ever thought I’d go completely meat-free – especially since I have such a narrow taste palette.  The intensive farming and concerns about the planet were also factors that were beginning to bother me.  I crafted an idea that if I could evidence a different type of diet – with very little processed food and lead by example, being a human guinea pig, it would impact on my family and ultimately change what they choose to eat.  I did zero research – You must take a B12 supplement if you are eating a plant-based diet.  You need to also take vitamin D whatever your diet due to the lack of sunlight, particularly in the winter months.  After it almost broke me, but then came a rainbow as leading by example finally worked with my middle child planning family meals throughout January on our brand-new calendar with meat-free Mondays!  Remember;  Giving up meat is far easier than giving up dairy  Get out of your own way and take supplements  Everyone should try meat-free Mondays or go vegan for a while; you’ll learn lots about your diet and what you eat  Eating vegan food doesn’t mean you are not eating processed food  Try and test lots of different foods  Chart your journey on Instagram  Trying different things is good for your soul, health and wealth  It’s good to test yourself  - I love testing  myself and my capacity to not give up on something I’ve started.  Most people lose weight on a plant-based diet  Why not get out there and give it a try.     BEST MOMENTS  I dug deep and really went through some sh#tty stuff and then the rainbow -when they chose to make the change’  ‘I almost cracked over the Christmas ham because my mum makes the best ham and I couldn’t have any’  ‘6 months in and I hadn’t had any impact on my kid’s diets’      VALUABLE RESOURCES   Speed Mentor Podcast  Gavan Wall website      ABOUT THE HOST   Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.   Do you want success and abundance in your life?!   Do you want to hear how to achieve it?   Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.   After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.    But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.   He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

So WWIII Is Heading Our Way, Here's What To Do!

‘I’m trying to help you turbocharge your success ‘ The world’s only speed mentor is back and looking at how he was previously and how he is now - he’s moved from consumer to producer and its helped him move up to the next level. In previous years Gavan was a consumer of all news and he justified consuming and listening to it so he could say that he was making decisions in his business that were properly informed because he knew what was going on. He was the ultimate consumer of all news but now he reflects on how a twitter alert about the imminent start of WWIII no longer brings the same response in him. He’s made the move to producer and in this episode explains how he did it and why you need to look at what you can change and influence rather than pointlessly worrying about what you can’t. This is a great episode which will make you smile and think carefully about what you are - consumer or producer?   KEY TAKEAWAYS I wanted to move myself to the next level to become the number 1 entrepreneur in Ireland and raise the GDP of the country like no other person ever had before The difference it made for me not listening to all the news shows was incredible and it freed me up to be able to move to the next level, which I had not been able to do before What you feed into your mind and subconscious through consumption of the arts and media and news works in the same way as the food you put into your body. Before I would have wasted the whole day trying to find out more, worrying about sh#t I had zero power to influence, to make go away or make better. The old me would have been consumed by the ‘news’ and wasted the whole day worrying and fretting. What I can do is make sure I have happy children, work hard on my business, work hard on myself, work hard on my marriage and pour my energy into creating a legacy I do have control of. Producers win and consumers lose In the past, I would have let myself be consumed by the sh#t and a few years on rather than consume and be consumed I’m using the experience to produce, to produce a podcast episode so that I can have a positive impact on others. This is stark evidence of my transformation from the consumer of other people’s sh#t to being the person who is only interested in working on myself and using what I’ve learnt to produce content for others. When you provide value because you are putting in the good stuff and producing quality for the world, that’s when the world repays your effort and everything goes really does 10x.   BEST MOMENTS ‘I’ve had a lot of success in my life prior to clicking the final pieces of the jigsaw in place’ ‘I’m trying to help you turbocharge your success’ ‘Don’t do it the hard way like I did spending years working everything out. Listen to the lessons I have learnt along the way’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone To Grow

‘Every f#king day I will be outside of my comfort zone!’ Gavan is back and getting up close and personal in this episode which follows 5 weeks of episodes where Gavan along with Andrew Cuthbert have shared how they are planning to positively disrupt the venture capital space in Northern Ireland with their new venture ‘The Change’. But as a hugely successful entrepreneur, the question Gavan is asking is; Why would I be jeopardising my good name by taking other peoples’ money and investing it, why am I taking all this risk? He has achieved virtually everyone’s dream having built a company he loves, which now only requires a light touch from him, providing him with the opportunity to do as he pleases for most of his time. So why is he not putting his feet up and relaxing on a beach? He’s working even harder because getting out of his comfort zone and taking risks is what gives him the ultimate buzz! Listen in and find out why you should be getting out of your comfort zone and getting comfortable with discomfort to grow in the next year.   KEY TAKEAWAYS When you make a promise to yourself to be the best version of yourself you can be, it’s then about how you keep moving forward. We are living in a developed world and we probably have too much comfort. We expect and get all the comfort we want in our lives so getting out of our comfort zone is really alien to us. We have come to expect comfort wherever we are in the developed world. We demand it and find it difficult to cope when we don’t have it. You should be making 2020 your year of discomfort, you need to get comfortable with discomfort and grow. When you are wondering what the difference is between you and those that are slaying it and having massive success it’s because they live in the discomfort all the time. When you step up and deliver something that is outside your comfort zone the adrenalin hit is great and highly addictive. You can start with something small and know that by the end of the year it will be significant.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We’ve made walrus island too comfortable for you, there is no more struggle on walrus island we take care of every need, there is comfort everywhere’ ‘Have you stopped pushing yourself?’ ‘Is this the year you are going to make everyone believe in you?’ ‘It’s a new decade so why not double down and make it happen’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website   YouTube; The Change: Who The Change Invest In   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

The Change Venture Fund Part 5- Who 'The Change' Invests In? Matt Thompson Interviews Andrew Cuthbert & Gavan Wall

Gavan and Andrew explain who ‘The Change’ is looking to invest in and the qualities they will need to demonstrate. They are looking for people who have high values in legacy, leadership, quality and sacrifice. If they don’t have these values and if they are not looking to create something bigger than themselves, a legacy, then they are not the right founders for ‘The Change’ If you have the right values and are willing to dedicate yourself completely, for ten years then the outcome is the possibility of choosing what you do for the rest of your life. ‘The Change’ will look to invest if they understand the concept, how it will change the industry space and if they know someone who knows the space well enough to be an agent of change, listen in and find out more about how they are going to change the world.   KEY TAKEAWAYS We want to create an ecosystem so people will have the courage to follow their dreams and believe they can act on their ideas and create a legacy. Our potential founder will be someone who has pitched to tens of VC firms and been decimated from those experiences. When we meet someone, we want to understand what they do. We want it to be disruptive and fundamentally change how an industry works or individuals live. There are the science and tech people who have great ideas but lack the people skills and someone to walk alongside them. We are leading by example so when our investees wonder what it takes then they only have to look to us. This is the legacy we want to create and we have dedicated the next ten years to achieving it. If you dedicate and sacrifice for ten years potentially the rest of your life is your own. If instead of mediocrity you give your all for ten years you will be able to spend the rest of your life doing what you want.   BEST MOMENTS ‘The talkers what are they really going to deliver? ‘The individual who wants to run a billion-pound company is a different individual from others’ ‘If they are not looking to create something bigger than themselves there are easier ways to make money’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website   YouTube; The Change: Who The Change Invest In   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

The Change Venture Fund Part 4- The Journey From £10million to £10billion? Matt Thompson Interviews Andrew Cuthbert & Gavan Wall

We're really getting into the meat of Gavan and Andrew's new Venture Capital business and what they're setting out to achieve in this 4th part of 5 episodes. In this episode the scale of the ambition is laid bare. They're on a journey to turn £10MN into £10BN of value in 10years. Listen in and get all the details on how they're going to do it! Gavan and Andrew discuss the billionaire mindset and what investees and investors can expect from The Change. In NI money or success are not really talked about but money is the opportunity to make a massive difference. If you can create huge value and huge wealth within the world you can do some crazy sh#t and really make a difference. The Change is trying to create a billion pounds of value in 10 companies so they’ve got to talk about money. They have to talk to investors, who want to invest and the investees who have the aspirations. Listen in and find out how they are creating a very different journey for both investors and founders, one that will make a difference and foster the big ideas that will change the world.   KEY TAKEAWAYS What does it take to start a company that will become a billion-pound business? We are looking at companies that require anything from half a million to 1.5 million. At the start, we may invest a small amount as a kick start so we can see how the vision is managed, what the quality is like and how they deliver. This can be followed by a first phase investment along with a milestone when the milestone is hit we unlock more capital. We can take your money as a sophisticated investor and spread it across the 10 companies we are working with. We are gathering a 10-million-pound fund from sophisticated investors. It’s the start of the journey from 10 million to 10 billion. We are at our core, value-adding Venture Capital. We will employ an agent of change, someone from the sector the business is in, to advise both the business and us on how to take the business forward. No one else is focusing on what we are focusing on – the journey. We have a very specific journey that will be completed when the valuation is 10m plus. Our success will be judged on whether after 18 or 36 months we can deliver a company worth 10m plus. There are lots of elements of change involved but we don’t want to change the things that work, we are looking to transform the relationship between the founder and VC.   BEST MOMENTS ‘We are looking to invest in early-stage pre-revenue companies that have big ideas’ ‘We are looking to say ‘we’ve helped you get started now you need to move to investment on the next level’ ‘We want to show that NI can bring in the best investors to support the best founders in NI’ ‘We have good relationships with VC companies who are bigger and have deeper pockets, we will be delivering our companies onto these VC to complete the journey’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website   YouTube The Change; The Journey from £10m to £10bn   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

As a start-up, you are a seed with limitless potential and we have personal mentorship in place to travel the path with you. Creational strategy We need to get a good understanding of who you have around you and who will be able to go with you on the journey. Where are you now? Where are you going to be in 10 years’ time? We will set the horizons that people will work towards, it’s a complete change in mindset Set your goals, set your sacrifices, think big, follow your business plan, build a great team, show your leadership skills and add value to everyone. Deconstruction The strategy transformation sprint is based on google ventures and we can completely blow people’s minds. We will talk about the concept of red and blue oceans.

The Change Venture Fund: Part 2 What We're Going Do

‘When you have something inside you that says you were meant to create something big?’  Join Gavan and his business partner,  Andrew Cuthbert as they discuss what they are looking for in a founder, values, the reasons for creating the change and why they are going big on legacy. They are creating something in Northern Ireland that will enable founders to create real value before going up to the next level because the question should be what legacy are you creating not what’s the revenue model? Their passion for Northern Ireland to again lead the way, as it did in the industrial revolution means their legacy is going to be big, it will be a legacy for a country. Listen in to find out more about what they are going to do in this insightful episode.    KEY TAKEAWAYS We are looking for the people who are driven by wanting to create a great legacy, when we talk about a million pounds as the evaluation we want to get to ‘the traditional unicorn’ and Its not necessarily about the exact financial position but about the mindset. If you are looking to change the world you’ll go further, work harder and push the envelope to another level, but it’s not for everyone. We are looking for founders who have particular values; Legacy  – do you want to create something bigger than yourself? it’s asking what is your core purpose? What can you change for others, what difference can you make in the world? Leadership - can they articulate it and make it clear to others, do others want to follow? There is not a type of leadership we are looking for but we want to evidence that they will be able to create a desire within their customer base, employees and within their industry. A good leader is someone who you want to follow, they create a pathway you want to walk towards. Quality – how do people deliver their idea and can they deliver what’s expected on time? It is knowing exactly what you are going to deliver and achieving it Quality is turning up every single day to deliver and organising your life to be able to do this. Sacrifice – is something you’ve got to want to do and it only comes to light that you’ve done enough after the fact. Having a plan that you can refer to will help you to know why you are sacrificing something. Even in the good times founders are looking forward to the next 5 years and working out what the next move should be. We spend a lot more time with our potential founders, so that when we make a judgement we are well informed.    BEST MOMENTS ‘I had a plan for 7 years sacrifice and it paid off massively for me’ ‘If you want to disrupt an industry you have to be able to attract the best people from other businesses in the industry to disrupt it’ ‘I want to change the world; my legacy has to be big’ ‘I was surprised about how money is managed by other people and I was also lucky enough to be in the company of entrepreneurs that had great venture capitalists behind them that made a difference in their lives’    VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website   What the Change Does & The Values it is Looking For   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

The Change Venture Fund: Part 1 – The Origin Story

Today’s episode is a very different affair as Gavan assumes the role of interviewee for a change! Along with his business partner, Andrew Cuthbert, Gavan is interviewed by Matt Thompson about the origin story and rise to business success in this first part of a five-part insight into the men behind the success of Change.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Andrew and Gavan met through LinkedIn, where Gavan had been looking for a tech startup opportunity. It began as a fascination between the two men but grew into a deep understanding of how they both liked to work. Entrepreneurs have a set a values that require them to disrupt the status quo; to look at any given situation and design ways of doing things differently. The most important thing in any working relationship is to find skills that compliment each other. Gavan is a problem solver, while Andrew has the technical expertise. This makes them a formidable partnership. The most important contributions in adding value are the ones that emanate from the mind. An idea is priceless and is completely unique to you.  BEST MOMENTS ’The honesty of the post just hit me’ ’The exterior wrapper may be different’ ‘I’ve always wanted to be the change’ ‘I cannot overstate how fascinating Andrew is’ ‘Gavan has completed me’ ‘It’s all about adding value with the power of the mind’ VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-Avgoy-zrg&list=PL3gYQKd_NL9LvNld_-c0Q9W0BXm9HPVSo&index=1  ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Partnering With The Right People Is Key To Success. The Wall Group Has Just Inked A New 10year Deal With The Henderson Group

‘If you think you can travel the journey alone you will soon find it’s a journey that can’t be taken alone’ As the Wall Group celebrates renewing its deal with the Henderson Group, Gavan is reflecting on the importance of the partnerships we make in business and why it’s vital that you take action and ask the right questions before you partner up with someone. Finding out the values, drive and motivation of the people you potentially want to work with is key because no matter what you want to do you can’t achieve it alone. Listen in now to find out about the journey The Wall Group and The Henderson Group have taken together.   KEY TAKEAWAYS The Wall Group has just inked a new 10-year deal  with the Henderson Group Their drive, innovation and belief in a legacy bigger than themselves is what puts them on a different and higher level. Things are different when you are dealing with people like that - they think differently and act differently. It’s not about the short term wins it’s about the long-term relationships and this mirrors my view on things. When you find out what your values are you can find partners who are like-minded. Ask what success looks like for the people you are potentially going to partner with. If you understand what success looks like for them then you will know if it aligns with you. When you overachieve because you know what success is for them it will strengthen your relationship and they will want to work with you again. Who are you partnering with and why? Can you see yourself standing with the company in the long term? If you look down the road will you want them to be standing with you in ten years’ time?   BEST MOMENTS ‘These guys aren’t in it for the money they are in it for the legacy’ ‘Why wouldn’t I sweat the asset as much as I could?’ ‘You have infinite power inside yourself so you need to ask yourself the right questions’ ‘If someone else can conquer it why the f#ck can’t you’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Don't Be a Victor Meldrew! Seize The Opportunities Tech and Social Offer

‘I’m trying to change the mindset of a whole country so converting non-believers is part of my journey’ Gavan likes to understand the motivation of those who troll and persistence with one of his trolls has revealed a fear of technology and being an older person within the social media space. To address this Gavan shares 8 great tips on how to seize, mostly for free, the opportunities that are available to build and be in the social media space. He wants to be part of the future not a Victor Meldrew character type and this episode offers great advice for anyone on how to get you and your business out there. Listen in and start creating your social media presence.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Use these Ideas to boost activities on social media, because the world values and gives back to creators, not consumers. Why not ask your niece, grandson or child, to give you a tutorial? – it is intuitive for them and it’s a great way to build a relationship and spend time together. If you don’t know how to make your own content - use a site like ‘Fiver’ to help you – you don’t need to hire someone. You don’t need to spend any money – ‘Canva’ is free and is a great tool for creating marketing images on a social feed.

Time To Go Off Grid And Discover Greatness

In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan puts the pop diva—and who he believes is a career inspiration—on the centre stage! Kylie Minogue’s career, as most already know, wasn’t very linear in terms of progression. She took years of hiatus—quite a shock, really—but the ‘career break’ was proven to be beneficial to her career. Gavan shares today the story on how he met one of his teenage crushes by chance. Curious of how it went down and what hit him when he finally saw one of his idols? Learn more when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Just like Kylie, you can also take a step back, take a break or change course, even at your peak, if you need to. There shouldn’t be a definite approach on things. Who knows, the other way might be better than the current. If you choose to take a chance on an opportunity, the make sure that you have a plan. It might be a great time to explore and experiment, but it doesn’t mean that you can be careless. Effective planning leads to achieving great results. Sometimes, you have to let go of some old habits, and even values, to make way of the right things—things that can actually serve you and help you succeed.

You're Not Alone With Your Imposter Syndrome - We All Get It

Gavan has experienced it all before, but not having an imposter syndrome. So, when it happened to him recently, he was surprised and at the same time he was quite glad. He was glad because it’s an experience that can be another chance to help other people—he can know fully understand and offer help, which is as authentic as possible. So, today on The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares the coping mechanisms he’s learned when he was experiencing imposter syndrome. Listen in to know more about these. Remember: You can get through this! You are not alone. KEY TAKEAWAYS Reasons why Gavan’s feeling imposter syndrome: The fear of losing others’ money Being clued up most of the time Buried deep in the technology space Overwhelmed with a big responsibility Trying to create unicorns Things you must do: Ask yourself if you REALLY want to turn back after all the efforts you’ve done. Get out of your head. Think about what you can do for others. Time for exercise to detox! Talk to others. Set your goals. BEST MOMENTS “Fear is not the same as imposter syndrome.” “I like to spend as much time as I can think about EQ more than IQ.” “If up until now you’ve been thinking that you’re the only person who suffers from the impostor syndrome, it’s far more common than you think.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Gavan Wall Official Website ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

How To Beat The Monotony Of Work

“I never have the chance to be bored because I’m setting new goals, new challenges, and new territory.” – Gavan Wall In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares the secrets on how to beat the monotony of work. We’ve heard it lots of time… “The only thing that’s constant is change.” If you feel that everything has become stale, then you should start worrying. Go back to your core value, principle, and goals. Surely, this is not the state you want to stay at when you reach your 40s, 50s, or so. Take down notes as he enumerates the different strategies you can do to continue personal development and career growth. Listen in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Luckily, Gavan only had a moment in his career that he experienced the monotony—it was when he was working as a barrister. But Gavan knew better and changed what he could change. It’s a danger zone when you don’t see change. You can’t be content at where you are right now if you know you can do improve something. How to prevent monotony at work? Always challenge yourself to grow. Make sure that your goals are gorilla goals. Ask yourself when’s your next speaking engagement. Push yourself outside yourself in LinkedIn. Attend networking events. Host your own event. Don’t just listen to The Speed Mentor Podcast; get out there! Create a list of your goals. Join Award ceremonies. Do CSRs. Set up a podcast. Do something different today! BEST MOMENTS “The danger zone is where the monotony starts.” “It’s about challenging yourself to grow and be better each day.” “Networking is a brilliant way to meet other like-minded people.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Simon Taylor - https://www.linkedin.com/in/simon-taylor-45045424/ A Beautiful Mind by Ron Howard | IMDb | https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268978/ The Speed Mentor Podcast: Why You Must Start to Public Speak | Apple | Spotify | Omny The Speed Mentor Podcast: Max The Opportunity When You’re An Attendee At Events | Apple | Spotify | Omny The Speed Mentor Podcast: Creating Ideas to Drive You Forward | Apple | Spotify | Omny The Speed Mentor Podcast: Industry Awards Ceremonies; Waste of Time or Essential Marketing? | Apple | Spotify | Omny The Speed Mentor Podcast: Want to Maximise The Impact of Your CSR and Charitable Work, Here’s How! | Apple | Spotify | Omny Gavan Wall Official Website ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Today I Don't Give A F--k. Make The Most Of It

Is it a big deal that I’m not feeling it today? I’m not your hero today, I’m just one beating heart, one overflowing mind’ We are 121 episodes in for the Speed Mentor and this is a very different episode from Gavan. It can be hard giving so much of yourself to the world and letting it own a chunk of you at all times and today is one of those very rare days when Gavan is tired of being who he is and feeling vulnerable. He is brutally honest in this evocative episode which will resonant in some way with everyone, as he reflects on daring to be vulnerable and the importance of committing to your potential.   KEY TAKEAWAYS I’m the guy who’s there to take it all and act like a lightning rod so everyone can learn from my experiences and follow the breadcrumbs, finding out how to do it. Maybe I’m tired of being who I’m meant to be or who I’ve painted myself into the corner of being. Maybe you get days like that to when you are tired of being who you’re meant to be. You could feel like this because of; Boredom You don’t love what you are doing Maybe you are aren’t experiencing the success you feel you deserve Maybe you are valuing the opinions of others over your own ambition Maybe you don’t know where you’re going It’s ok to feel these things occasionally but happiness and fulfilment lie in reducing the number of days you feel like this to a minimum whilst understanding you can never eradicate them completely. I’m wearing my vulnerability on my sleeve today. To be brave and show up vulnerable is a superpower all in itself. People often only commit tiny amounts of their potential, they hold back because they fear being vulnerable, a rejection at this point can be devasting. I  understand and embrace that I am unfinished and always will be. It enables me to step into this arena today when I am feeling vulnerable. This is real, this is me - I document my journey and leave the breadcrumbs for others – I call it radical authenticity.   BEST MOMENTS ‘If you don’t take the risks you’ll end up bored, lacking motivation and not loving what you  do’   ‘I know deep down that you can’t take on the world every day, on the days that you can’t small wins are a significant achievement’ ‘People don’t want to do the deep work on themselves that’s needed to feel comfortable in being vulnerable’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Working Up The Change's Business Plan

‘We are going to prove to the world we have awesome talent and innovation right here in Northern Ireland’ This episode is the third part in a 3-part series about the birth of ‘The Change’ The principles of success are universal and Gavan and Andrew are bringing them to the world of venture capital with ‘The Change’ creating ten billion-dollar businesses in 10 years. They are seeking technology companies that can bring solutions, disrupt industries, change the world and become billion-dollar businesses. This episode focuses on the values that Gavan and Andrew are looking for in the start-ups they want to invest in and why these values are key elements in a billion-dollar business.   KEY TAKEAWAYS If the big questions haven’t been asked and the answers interrogated before you start then you will be nothing more than an also-ran. What are the values that govern your conduct and the values you seek in the people who work with you or for you We needed a way to judge each of the potential founders against our overall aim to create billion-dollar businesses; Legacy Leadership Quality Sacrifice These are the important values if you want to build a billion-dollar company. Legacy We are looking for people who don’t see their achievements limited to themselves. Legacy is about what you create outside of yourself for the benefit of others, it's about the impact your life and work has on others. Leadership When it comes to creating a billion-dollar business the leaders must have the magnetism to attract others such as investors, employees and customers to their cause. Quality Can they demonstrate quality in every area of delivery being on time or ahead of time every time. Preparation and follow up all must be delivered to the highest quality. Sacrifice Does the founder appreciate that investment by The Change only comes if we believe they understand that you cannot create a billion-dollar company unless you are prepared to sacrifice virtually everything in your life for a significant period of time. We want to create a movement of people ‘agents of change’   BEST MOMENTS ‘If you are going to live to eighty, would you not sacrifice seven of those years to achievetrue greatness and choose what you wanted to do for the rest of your life’ Whether your business is in venture capital or selling candy floss you’ve got to take the time to think about why? If you are just trying to impact on family and friends you don’t have the mindset required to create a legacy, make an indelible mark on the world ‘You know it when you see it, that mercurial twinkle in their eye that great leaders have’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

The Change Pt.II What's Happening Next

The first part got so much reactions and Gavan was surprised. So, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, he gives us an update. What’s happening with the change that he and Andrew has been creating? Gavan and Andrew are aware of the success rate of start-up companies. So, as they help the aspiring entrepreneurs, they want them to have a strong foundation because it isn’t all about the money. Aside from talking about his aim to put Northern Island on the top in the tech industry through Project-X, he also encourages everyone to see vulnerability as a strength, not as a weakness. This is a great start if you want to build connections that will last and matter. Time to listen in! KEY TAKEAWAYS Vulnerability can be your strength. If you’re not opening yourself up to people, it’d be difficult to create connections. And, in order for you to understand and influence them, you must convince them you can be trusted too. But, before you open yourself up, you need to trust and be confident about yourself and your abilities. There will be people who won’t be as appreciative with what you’re doing, but that’s okay as long as you focus on the people who can see your value. He and his partner are ready to help entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland, especially those in start-up, be successful with their combined knowledge in tech and personal development. BEST MOMENTS “You got to touch people to make a difference in them.” “Create a foundation of achievement first.” “If we believe that we can bring all the stakeholders together as agents of change, we can create an unstoppable movement.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Gavan Wall Official Website ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Project-X AKA The Change; How It All Began

‘Change is everywhere and it's very often good for you’ In this thought-provoking episode, Gavan discusses why having built a successful brand he’s walking away and seizing a new opportunity. Gavan explains why you should be open to every opportunity and the importance of partnering up if you want to create something that is truly epic in scale and the realisation of your dreams. Listen in to find out now about Project X and its importance.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Opportunities You should always try to keep the door open for any and every possibility in life. People change, I have changed I am not the same person I was a decade ago and neither are you. I want to create, with others, something truly global from scratch. I find it fairly easy to create opportunities of good scale, I find it fairly easy to create and build multi-million-dollar turnover in very profitable businesses. When I look back in my life a common theme is that I walk away from good opportunities, am I afraid of failure or is it that I’m afraid of success? The reason I keep walking away is that I want to create not million but billion-dollar opportunities in Northern Ireland, I want to create a billion-dollar legacy. The reason I’ll achieve it is that I’ve got the balls to say it and because I’ve gathered knowledge across multiple industries with a network of people who will help me. I can’t achieve that sort of scale on my own, greatness can only be achieved by at least a pair of people. If you are starting, scaling or building your business you can achieve success on your own but to be truly disruptive and world-changing there has to be at least a pair of you. Detailing your narrative and journey is a great way of connecting with other like-minded people and sharing your common cause. Project X If you document your authentic story other like-minded people will identify with you. My business partner for Project X had had similar experiences, warmed to my resilience and knew about my journey because I’ve shared the ups and downs of my life. Our failures brought us together one a humble genius, the other brash but philosophically completely in sync. Dreams If you think you were born to achieve something more than others expect of you. If you think you are destined for something greater, never ever give up on that. Dream big, take massive action towards it and share it, to keep you accountable and inspire others.   BEST MOMENTS ‘Here is a guy from Belfast who used to be in law, had an entrepreneurial itch, who’s saying out loud he wants to create multi-billions in value in Northern Ireland with start-up. businesses and he’s going to create it with his business partner and document the journey’ ‘He reached out to me because of a post I’d done on failure – about losing everything’ ‘Greatness can only be achieved by at least a pair of people’   VALUABLE RESOURCES  Speed Mentor Podcast Gavan Wall website     ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Some Great Lessons from The Blindside

As we head into Autumn, let Gavan ask you: what did you accomplish during Summer? Were you able to plan that project? Were you able to get the needed vacation? Well, it doesn’t really matter what you did and what you didn’t, as long as you’ve learned something during the whole duration, right? Today on the episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares what made a mark on him. He watched the movie ‘The Blind Side’ with his family last week, and he says he won’t ever forget about it! Well, it won’t be definitely considered ‘big’ by some of you but The Blind Side left so many great lessons for him and for his family. And, he’s sharing it in this episode because he believes it will help you too! Discover what The Speed Mentor is raving about when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Gavan does a Friday Movie Night with his family as their bonding and to sort of cap their weeks. This week, they watched The Blind Side starring Sandra Bullock, Quinton Aaron and Tim McGraw, and it brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Gavan says it might be one of the best movies they’ve watched together. The Blind Side is based on a true story. Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) has been in foster care with different families before Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and Sean Tuohy (Tim McGraw) took him in—they became his legal guardian. As they try to live like normal families, they learn and support each other, which will then lead to self-discoveries of their own. You can be the catalyst for someone’s pursuit of happiness and success. You can let someone see his own potential if he’s having a difficult time recognising it. BEST MOMENTS “Be a stopper, not a quitter.” “The weight of the vested interest is to keep us in line, to force us back in to our silos in life.” “The more you give to the world, the more it gives back to you.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Blind Side (2009) - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0878804/ Gavan Wall Official Website ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

If You Want To Live to 150yrs of Age, The Power of Positivity Will Get You There, And I've Got The Proof!

The Elixir of Life… Where do we find it? It turns out immortality or maybe just growing as old as you want is possible. The only potion you need is positive thinking, according to Gavan. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, he talks about the power of positivity. Frowning, complaining, or bickering will get you nowhere. If you really want to reach your goals, change ways, or try out something new, then you have to think that you can do it, at the very least. Learn how you can develop a positive mindset today when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS We can’t have control on the commotion/imbalance/disturbance that happen in our surroundings. What we can control is how we process and deal with them. If we don’t let them consume us, then you don’t have to worry about a shortened life expectancy. According to a study, optimistic people live longer. On average, they have 11 percent to 15 percent longer life span than those who don’t have a positive outlook in life. Gavan also adds that most optimistic people have goals. Tips To Keep you More Positive: Dive again in the previous episodes of The Speed Mentor Podcast. Visualise a good life ahead of you. Be grateful. Stop complaining. Have an alcohol-free existence. BEST MOMENTS “I’ve got control of everything I let in my orbit.” “Lead a positive life. Always see the cup half full. Always see that every obstacle is an opportunity1 “Positivity comes from feeding yourself of the good stuff.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Optimists Live Longer | The Brinks Gavan Wall Official Website ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

He had jobs before that pay well, but never did his hunger for starting his own business die down.

It Doesn't Sound Very Sexy, But You Need To Get Consistent Action Into Your Locker

‘Consistent application through maintenance of motivation’ is the key according to Gavan!  No one tunes in to The Speed Mentor Podcast and is only pleased with an average wealth, average lifestyle, and average mindset. Everyone here in Wallrus Island wants the real thing—the legacy, the wealth, personal development, unstoppable mindset, etc. All of what was mentioned can be achieved through massive action, which you have heard gazillion times in the previous episodes. Today, we dive deep on how important consistency is in taking every massive action. Once you’ve started something, you must put in the time and effort in every single task regularly so you’ll meet your goal. Discover how you can do it in this episode.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Love yourself. Nobody’s perfect—you got your ugly bits too. It’s time to embrace and own them. These what makes you unique. Transform all your flaws into something where you and others can benefit.  Jumping into what you want right away with no assurance that you’ll get rewards at the end of day might be best for you. You learn and experience new things that can help you in your future long-term goals.  A great portion of massive action is taking a consistent action. You can’t expect reaping great success at the end if you don’t put in your fullest in the daily grind.  How can you be consistent in what you do? Write all your goals, even the very smallest one. Read them every single day or when you need it, just to recalibrate yourself and know where to put your focus and priority every day.  BEST MOMENTS  “It’s what on the inside that matters, and what we see in ourselves and others that makes the difference of how we love and how we grow.”  “Your being, your essence, your identity is based more on what you think and what you do than where you actually born.”  “It’s the consistency of the application, it’s the systemisation that they have…”  “Action must be consistent or it will amount to no more than you being average.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Revenge, A Dish Best Served Cold... Or Not At All

Every generation has its opinions and wisdom about revenge. We’re taught all too often that revenge should be equal to the crime, and even that we owe it ourselves or those we love, to take revenge when we’re hurt.   But it’s a mindset that holds far too many people back. Why, when we spend so much time planning and mapping out our goals and our path in life, should we then spend so much time away from that plan, so that we can get our own back when we feel we’ve been wronged.   In this episode, Gavan discusses this fascinating issue, and provides you with the tools and examples you’ll need to remain focussed on what’s important.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Every judgment you make is not based on the facts that you believe are true. It’s based on your perception of what fact is. It’s filtered through prejudice, emotion and experience.      The energy wasted on chasing these false perceptions is tragic. Imagine the good you could do with that energy. Imagine the time you could save by concentrating on something positive instead.     In the heat of the moment, people can feel a burning desire to teach a lesson to those who have wronged us; to make them feel humility or to make them understand what they’ve done wrong.      Remember that if this person’s crimes were an extension of their personality, then they’ll most likely learn a lesson when they do the same thing to someone just like them down the line.     Set your own personal goals properly. Take careof the stuff that takes you towards them. That’s the part we can control, and the only part we should control.      Instead of seeking revenge, aim for more personal success. Remember that karma will take care of the bad guys!  BEST MOMENTS  ‘We’re all different, so why do so many look the same?’   ‘Let’s get real. It’s cancerous stuff we’re talking about here’   ‘Your perception is probably based on the grey stuff, instead of the black and white you think it is’   ‘Get over yourself! Pray for them!’   ‘You’ll have an arms race on your hands'   ‘Do better. Be better!'   ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

...Is It The Final Curtain?

There’s gonna be a big change on Wallrus Island.  We had to tweak things a bit—in place of daily episodes, The Speed Mentor Podcast will now be publishing once a week, every Thursday.

This is his main priority as of now among a huge number of projects.  His goal to be the #1 Personality in Northern Belfast is unfaltering.

Gavan is going nowhere. Instead of the daily release of episodes, he’ll put them out weekly.   BEST MOMENTS  “I share my guerrilla goals to you to keep me accountable.”  “It’s very important for you to apply the same thought, principles, and your own mind to your goals to keep you growing exponentially too.”  “I don’t want any of you to forget what this journey together has felt like for the last 110 episodes. Bottle up that secret sauce and apply that to your daily life.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

COLLABCAST With Best Of Belfast! Share The Treasure

On our final leg of the Slay The Dragon Series, Gavan Wall and Matt Thompson teaches us how to celebrate—how to take in all the successes and how de we enjoy all the treasures we come across in the journey. Though we see the end goal as the ultimate treasure, don’t forget to digest every experience you’ve consumed along the way. Most of the time, these are what influenced as the most—what changed us. When we recognise that we’ve grown so much after our hero’s journey, the final step is the most crucial. Learn how to share the knowledge to other people so you can help them. Discover more on how you can share the wonderful treasures when you tune in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast! KEY TAKEAWAYS It’d be the most fulfilling feeling to celebrate your success if you share it with others. You show your gratitude to the people who have helped you when you pass what you’ve learned to others. Gavan and Matt won’t hear any of your excuses if you say you say there’s no avenue available to share your knowledge. Make use of the internet. There’s social media, which is available for free, where you can produce any content, from videos, podcasts, articles, etc. Take note that not everyone will want your help or support that you offer, but that shouldn’t stop you from contributing value. Take pride on the possibility that there might be one (yes, even one) individual who is growing because of what you put out.

COLLABCAST With Best Of Belfast! Enter The Cave

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek.” Are you ready to set out in your journey? The thing is you’ll never be ready. No matter how much you’ve prepared, there will be unprecedented things that will appear­--there’s gonna be big challenges, there’s gonna be failure, but that shouldn’t let you stop entering the cave. We’re on our third part of the Slay The Dragon Series, a collabcast between The Speed Mentor Gavan Wall and Best of Belfast’s Matt Thompson, and this is what we highlight today. Gavan and Matt share their own experiences in slaying their very first dragon. No matter how big or small that is, we always are victorious if we learn or improve something from the quest. They also share some tips, so you won’t be as scared as when your time to enter the cave comes. Start tuning in to know more. KEY TAKEAWAYS It’s not only the external factors that you need to look out for when you’re about to set out in a journey; one must also be wary of how our surroundings might change or make us aware of an unknown within us. We may end up confronting the inner conflicts just to win the physical battles. Don’t let your fears and doubts rule your quest. Your task is to show up. You’ll learn and develop as time goes by. And as you move along the journey, just think about how close you get every time to winning while overcoming all your battles. When you’ve slayed your first dragon, you get a taste of how fulfilling and satisfying it will be when you get to the top. Learn from and celebrate these kinds of milestones. BEST MOMENTS “A lot of the dragons that we face in our lives at our core we’re actually fighting with the person inside.” “You may go in and face the dragon and you may get burnt. You may actually get your ass kicked the first time you go in.” “It’s okay to be a stopper, but never be a quitter. Be prepared to go again.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning by Steven Pressfield The Speed Mentor Podcast: Perfectionism is the Procrastinator’s Excuse | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE GUEST HOST Matthew Thompson is the host of the Best of Belfast Podcast, a podcast dedicated to showcase what Belfast has to offer – the places, the stories of the locals, the culture, and many more.

COLLABCAST With Best Of Belfast! Meet The Mentor

Who’s the mentor of the Speed Mentor? If you want to know how successful and influential people found their mentors, then listen to Gavan Wall and Matthew Thompson today. This Slay the Dragon Series, a collabcast, promises to help you in your hero’s journey. For the diehard Wallruses out there, we’ve long established from the previous episodes of the podcast that NO (hero’s) journey is travelled alone. You need people to help you, motivate you, and collaborate with along the way. A mentor is the greatest person you’ll keep at your side during the expedition. Discover where you can find the best one for you when you listen in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Find a mentor you’re comfortable with-someone who can empathise with whatever you’re going through and can help you get you out of it. Gavan recalls the first time he openly talked to his mentor about the challenges he was facing. To unload what’s on your mind is freeing and to know that someone’s willing to listen is very encouraging. Matt’s grandmother was a key mentor to him. Wisdom comes with age. It may not be about business strategies, but she thought him about life experiences. Don’t quickly dismiss the idea of paid mentorships. Some might think it might be useless for them since there are a lot of resources which they can take advantage of. But if you really want to commit, consider paid mentorships. These mentors know what the value of what they can do; they know it’s worth paying. And most of the time, where our money goes, our attention goes. For mentees, be clear on what you want first before you approach a prospect mentor. How can he/she help you if you aren’t aware of your purpose. It’s not the mentor’s job to do that for you. He’s there to help you. Besides, these people are who value their time so much. If you meet them, always be ready. BEST MOMENTS “The mentor is the one who’s gonna train the hero, prepare them for the journey ahead, and equip them with the right tools.” “For any mentor, to have empathy is as much an important tool as the knowledge of the actual business.” “Every person who will give assistance, add value to them.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning by Steven Pressfield Rob Moore The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo The Speed Mentor: It's Seems Like A Long Time Ago That I Was Sacked Twice In One Week - THE UPDATE | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE GUEST HOST Matthew Thompson is the host of the Best of Belfast Podcast, a podcast dedicated to showcase what Belfast has to offer – the places, the stories of the locals, the culture, and many more.

Gavan and Matt assure you that everything will be worth the sacrifice, the risks, and the energy you put in when you finally see your plans developing into something. Listen in to know get more insights about their stories today. KEY TAKEAWAYS It’s good to assert yourself into new calls for adventure. Most likely, your creative mind would come up with new ideas on how to improve what you have and what you could offer. Don’t let anything and anyone stops yourself from embarking on this journey. The only way is to move forward. The only advice for people who think they don’t have the guts to do it is just do it. Commit on doing it. Learn from people who have already experienced it or those who have same goals as you are. Who knows, you might help each other traverse your journeys as well. You’ll need people around you while you go through it. BEST MOMENTS “The hero’s journey never ends.” “Once you go after those feelings inside… I don’t want to go to the grave.” “Psychologists refer to that as the lock-in effect. That’s when you commit at something and force yourself into doing it.” “Sometimes in life, it’s better you don’t know because if you knew, you probably won’t go in the journey.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning by Steven Pressfield ABOUT THE GUEST HOST Matthew Thompson is the host of the Best of Belfast Podcast, a podcast dedicated to showcase what Belfast has to offer – the places, the stories of the locals, the culture, and many more.

COLLABCAST With Best Of Belfast! The Heroes Journey

When Frodo prevented Dark Lord Sauron from using the One Ring to rule Middle Earth, he became a hero. When Neo led and won the warfare against machine overlords from obliterating the whole humanity, he also became a hero. You might not be aware, but you are on your own hero’s journey-well, not in the fictional world, of course, but in real life. In this first part of the 5-part Slay the Dragon Series, a collabcast of The Speed Mentor Gavan Wall with Best of Belfast Podcast’s Matt Thompson, we discuss everything you need to know about The Hero’s Journey. They base this on Joseph Campbell’s book of the same title. Today, we’ve compressed the steps into ten, so make sure you take mental notes. Discover how you can start and expect from your journey. We know deep down ourselves that there’s more to what we are doing and what we have that is far better, so tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Ordinary World - We try go through each day trying to get the most out of the mundane. We work from 9-5 most of the week, try to spend time with out loved ones, and get enough rest. Call to Adventure - Passion has been ignited and you want to start and plan you journey. We think what we want is unreachable and that we’re not worth it. Meeting with the Mentor - When someone experienced shows and up and guides you in your journey, grab the opportunity and start learning. Crossing the threshold. It’s about jumping out to the unknown and taking the leap. Tests, Allies, Enemies - You meet people that will help you improve, develop and face any obstacle. And there will be people who won’t even bat an eyelash. Approach to The Inmost Cave - Confront your fears, doubts, and insecurities. It’s only you who can resolve your inner conflicts. Primal Ordeal - Ready yourself for your unforeseen battles. They could be as small and as big as they get. They could change your path or even change you afterwards. Getting Out. You get a sense of relief from the transformation that happened from overcoming an obstacle. It’s the moment of ultimate humility as the hero do what he feels what needs to be done. There is completion of the character arc. A Gift for The People. Look back to where you started and see and appreciate how much you’ve changed. It’s time to help other people also in their journey. BEST MOMENTS “At the end of the day, we all want to be heroes.” The heroes’ journey is like a circle. The reason it’s a circle is because the heroes’ journey doesn’t start when you’re born and ends when you die. It’s a process you’ll go through several times in your life.” “Mentors can be physical. They can be people in real life that you meet for coffee, a grandparent, a parent, or whoever he is. But they can also be, in this day and age, digital.” “Start the action that will create attraction.” “There’s always that moment when you think you’ve won, the end’s at sight, but a bigger challenge will come up.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning by Steven Pressfield ABOUT THE GUEST HOST Matthew Thompson is the host of the Best of Belfast Podcast, a podcast dedicated to showcase what Belfast has to offer – the places, the stories of the locals, the culture, and many more.

Visualize Your Way To Success

It all starts inside our brain. Every idea, plan and decision gets concocted inside our head. So, as much as possible, we harness the power of our subconscious mind, which is in charge of our belief and actions. In this episode, Gavan dives deep on how visualisation can help you achieve more. He gives four key reasons to start training yourself in visualising your way to a successful life. When you imagine what you want for yourself, everything will fall right into place. You see what works for you and what not. You know what opportunities to grab and who can help you realise your dreams. Discover how you can visualise your way to success today on The Speed Mentor Podcast. KEY TAKEAWAYS Law of Attraction. It states that whatever you think about, fantasize about, and talk about will be attracted into your life. When you believe and start imagining how it feels when you reach your goal, it’s easier to ponder on the resources and the plans you need to get there. Motivation isn’t built to last. It’s important to find inspiration and refocus every day by visualising. Knowing that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow gets you re-energised if you feel like your energy is depleting. It burns a mental picture, feelings and emotions into your subconscious mind. When this happens, your reticular activating system (RAS) starts working and your goals and dreams become clear. It programs your RAS to notice the resources are already around you. We become observant and resourceful. What we can do becomes limitless because we can see how anything can be turned into an opportunity. BEST MOMENTS “Action creates the attraction.” “Your subconscious mind is a limitless resource that you’re hardly tapping into.” “When we reset at the end of the day and build the emotional connection to the achievement of the dream, then you’re ready to go again the next day.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

An Episode About Beyonce- Surely Not!

No. Sadly, Gavan won’t be belting out Beyoncé tunes today. Instead, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan highlights what Walruses can learn from Beyoncé and her dedication towards her career, passion, and advocacies. Gavan was definitely amazed and inspired after watching her documentary film Homecoming so he wants to share them to you also. Beyoncé’s music will remain quintessential throughout the history of pop music. But, how does she does it? How did she build and still grow such a legacy? What can we learn from her as entrepreneurs? Start tuning in to find out the answers. KEY TAKEAWAYS Homecoming gives us a closer look at Beyoncé’s iconic 2018 Coachella performance and her behind-the-scenes preparations, which lasted for a full 8 months, for it. Aside from starring in it, she is also the director, writer and producer of the film. Though her performance was definitely everyone’s takeaway, it should also be emphasised how Beyoncé became the voice for the oppressed black women. Like her, you can create your followers and believers by knowing how you can use your stature, what you can change and what mark you want to live in society. Beyoncé’s well aware of her talents. She isn’t afraid to mix her craft with her advocacies. She knows that by doing so she can influence others to be self-confident, stand up, and do what’s right. BEST MOMENTS “There’s no contradiction in being grateful and chasing down abundance at the same time.” “She says that God has blessed her and all of us, in her view, has a duty to repay that by maximising every talent we got.” “It doesn’t have to be a specific personal development literature. The good stuff is everywhere around us if we look for it.” VALUABLE RESOURCES HOMECOMING: A Film by Beyoncé | Netflix ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

It's Seems Like A Long Time Ago That I Was Sacked Twice In One Week - THE UPDATE

Risk = Reward Today on The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan gives you an update on a story he shared on a previous episode. For those who may need a review about what happened, he got sacked by two of his mentees in just a week. He wasn’t expecting it, but instead of being disgruntled about it, he remained patient. He waited and waited to let things be clear unto him before taking any reckless acts. And, as the universe permits, things turned out the way he liked them to be! Everything’s worth the risk. Discover how these mentor-mentee relationships were salvaged and remained fruitful when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Gavan is unapologetically assertive for supporting and assisting you achieve your goals. Your mentor should be also. Look for someone that can make you get out of your comfort zone. Choose someone who can take risks to get you to take risks. Though some might not be used to getting out of their own shells, understand that your mentor knows what’s best for you and what you could do to grasp it. Open your mind and learn to be resilient. Practice what you preach. Gavan himself remained patient despite the refusal of communication from the mentees. He still wanted to help them despite what happened. And, as things unfold by themselves, he saw progress-his mentees were started reaching their targets and they began acknowledging how Gavan has helped them. BEST MOMENTS “Life is all about taking risks.” “The greater the risk, the greater the reward if you can pull it off.” “Do it right now. Don’t second guess yourself. Your success, your life-changing moment, lies on the other side of that risk.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: I Got Sacked TWICE in One Week! | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Fake It Until You Make It Is Total Bollox

‘Fake it until you make it.’ We’ve heard it all before, but can faking really bring you the success you want? Gavan argues that you can’t. You might get lucky, but what you get might not bring you the happiness, fulfilment, and satisfaction. How can you be when you’re inauthentic to yourself, anyways? Pretending to be someone, copying someone’s behaviour, and basing your end goal on what people say can be exhausting. Stop. Start discovering today on The Speed Mentor Podcast how you can truly accept and be yourself while you chase for what you want. KEY TAKEAWAYS Being true to yourself is your ultimate move; your uniqueness is your primary capital. It what sets you apart from your competitors. Recognise this and start thinking of how you can put out great content, products, and services based on who you are, what you want, and what they need. The copycats, the fakers, the wannabes, or whatever you want to call them are most likely to be caught of their inauthenticity. People can see through your actions-how empty are your messages and how you blindside them. Develop your strengths rather than looking at other people to copy. Stop comparing yourself. BEST MOMENTS “If you want to succeed, you must be authentic.” The problem with faking it is it becomes so easy to continue doing that.” “Make your vulnerabilities your superpower.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Logan’s Run by William F.

How to Build Stronger Relationships

No one traverses his own (yes, even his own) journey alone! In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan gives us useful tips on how to build stronger relationship. We should nurture every relationship to make sure it’s healthy and we get the benefits from it – all the support, compassion, and help we need. We can’t be lax on how we treat people we value and who value us in return. It requires effort and understanding (above all else) from both parties. Learn today 15 things that you should remind yourself every time you build a new relationship and grow an existing one. KEY TAKEAWAYS Be genuinely interested in the outcomes of other people. Smile. When you exude positive energy, people believe that they must give back the same level of energy. Remember that a person’s name is the sweetest and most important sound in any language. In any conversations, it’s easier to get the full attention of the other person if we address them with their name from time to time. Listen. It’s your ultimate superpower. Check out a previous The Speed Mentor Podcast episode about this below. Never backstab. How do you approach every individual you encounter? Are you nit-picking at people all the time? Encourage them rather than degrade them because of their mistakes. Lead by example. Hone their skills and teach them everything so they could improve themselves. Treat people fairly. Don’t condemn anyone. it’s not your job to judge what’s right and wrong. Everything is energy. Showcase the person at every opportunity. Give praises to your colleagues, employees, partners, etc. if you see improvements. BEST MOMENTS “No susceptible journey has ever been done alone.” “The successful are successful because they realise that the more people they positively impact, the more positive stuff will flow direct to them.” “Your reward when you do this will be huge if you can create future leaders rather than followers.” VALUABLE RESOURCES How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie The Speed Mentor Podcast: It's Time To Release Your Very Own Superpower, LISTENING, And Then Watch Your Outcomes Flourish | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

How to Identify The Best Mentor For YOU

Many successful entrepreneurs, thought leaders, motivational speakers, and so on are offering their mentoring services these days. It’s getting hard to pick one and you definitely can’t do it randomly. Who you choose MUST connect with you, aside from the guiding, teaching, and supporting aspect of it. Gavan’s top advice to reduce your choices is to do your research. After this, it becomes easier to see what won’t work for you. In today’s episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, you’ll hear the 14 great tips to choose the best one. Make sure to remember these as your mentor will help you be accountable and push you forward to achieve your goals. KEY TAKEAWAYS Check their social media for credibility. There is no hiding place these days. Most are connected online. Your mentor must have experienced what you are experiencing and about to go through. Make sure that your mentor is on a growth journey themselves. Get a mentor who offers a time-bond program. Goals and expectations should be genuinely challenging. Acknowledge that you need the best mentor to be the best version of yourself. There’s a broad spectrum where mentors will come from. Try to consider as many as you can. A good mentor will not be afraid to hold you accountable and challenge you. There are differences between a coach, a mentor, and a successful person. They employ people who have skill sets greater than their own. Does he evidence that anyone can be successful? He can introduce you to mastermind groups. “Free advice is often overpriced.” Pick a mentor that you want to be like. BEST MOMENTS “There are all sorts of relationships that are productive for personal and business growth.” “Smart people learn from their mistakes, but successful people learn from mistakes of others.” “Their job is to pull you up to where they are.” “If your mentor doesn’t believe that we all have huge potential and he can’t see and embrace that, then they will hold you back.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: How To Be The Perfect Mentee To Get More From Your Mentoring | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The Speed Mentor Podcast: From Mentee to J.V. | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Could A Book on Marketing Be Worth -1000 Dollars

Jay Abraham is one of the well-known marketers in the 1970s. His proven methods were compiled and made into a book, Stealth Marketing or Recession Proofing Your Business.  There’s a bunch of reasons this book sells even with its staggering price of $1, 000. Gavan, your host, has recently started reading it and is ready to share a few things that he has gotten in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast. He gives us a bite-size and yet very informative overview. Discover today the Top 10 Marketing Mistakes and how you should avoid them, tips on systematisation, and some advice for your campaigns coined by Jay Abraham.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  In the second chapter of the book, Jay wrote about 10 marketing mistakes that people do. As long as you can reduce it to two, you’re all good. Here are what you should avoid:  Not testing.  Running institutional advertising instead of direct response.  Failure to deliver a unique selling proposition (USP).  Not having a back end.  Failing to determine your customers’ needs.  Forgetting or never recognising that you have to sell and educate your way out of a business problem.  Failing to do business with your company easy, desirable, and fun.  You cannot service too much.  You cannot educate enough.  You cannot inform too much.  You cannot offer too much.  You cannot make ordering too easy.  You cannot make calling or coming into your business too desirable.  Failing to tell your customers the reason.  Not sticking with marketing campaigns that are still working.  Forgetting to focus on the intended customer when preparing ads, TV commercials, or mailings.  Jay Abraham’s pieces of advice for your campaigns:  Get your target audience’s attention with the headline.  State your offer.  Persuade your prospect.  Call to action (CTA).  BEST MOMENTS  “The producers of this world have great value and the consumers of this world don’t have that value.”  “How do we put a marketing question to a vote? By testing one sales approach to another, one price against another, one ad concept against another, one headline against another…”  “Compel people to buy then take action.”  “You got to make your relationship with your company easy and enjoyable.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  Stealth Marketing or Recession Proofing Your Business by Jay Abraham  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Stop Complaining & Moaning And Watch Your Life Transform

Aren’t you tired of hearing yourself complain about your life? For sure, people around you are. No one really wants to hear about toxicity every single day.  You need to stop complaining.  In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan gives you 10 reasons you need to stop complaining and moaning. Instead of venting out to your co-worker, why don’t you change your mindset and behaviour about your issues? Your life will surely transform when you react to things differently. Discover what you can do and how can this benefit you today.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  10 Reasons You Need To Stop Complaining:  It will not solve anything anyway.  Complaining is like mogwais in the Gremlins movie. Once they get wet, they multiply, and they take over.  People avoid complainers.  Complainers are like birds of the same feather; they flock together. You’ll mostly see them huddled up in one area moaning about their boring job or filthy boss.  Complaining solves nothing. It only makes things worse.  If you stop complaining, you build and grow relationships.  Complaining kills gratitude.  You prevent yourself from being happy. It’s also easier to find solutions when your focus is on overcoming the challenge and getting to the end goal.  Complaining prevents growth.  It’s a bad look, especially if you post it online.  BEST MOMENTS  “Get yourself out of that shit before your life becomes consumed by it.”  “Without gratitude, there is nothing. When you’re moaning, you’re missing out on your blessings.”  “You subconsciously look for the pain points because you like to complain.”  “If you can’t say anything nice and constructive, don’t say anything at all.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Max The Opportunity When You're An Attendee At Events

If you’re not showing up to networking events, then you’re missing out on something big.  We’ve already established in the past episodes that successful entrepreneurs didn’t reach the peak on their own. They got help and support from their support groups, their mentors, and other like-minded people. And if you ask where they met some of them, the answer is obvious-it’s during networking events. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan encourages you to attend and to max the opportunities you’ll get from the events. He gives the nine stages you need to go through as an attendee so you’ll have the best experience. Not only do you gain knowledge, you also expand your network after it. KEY TAKEAWAYS Nine Stages of A Successful Attendee: Stage 1: Start attending events, network with other people, and showcase your experience in your social media. Stage 2: Overcome fear and impostor syndrome. Most of the attendees may have already experienced or are experiencing this. It’s normal, but if you keep attending these kinds of events, it will gradually, or maybe instantly, go away. Stage 3: If possible, go on your own. When you go by yourself, you have no other choice but to interact with new people. Stage 4: Research about the guest speakers and the topics that will be discussed beforehand. You get to ask more questions or add more value to the discussion. This will also get you noticed by the host and other people. Stage 5: Take part fully in the whole event, not only during discussions. There will be icebreakers and team-building activities in between. Show enthusiasm as this gives a lasting impression to others. Stage 6: Get cards from other people. Store their contact info in your phone and connect with them in their social media after the event. Stage 7: Have a good time, but don’t go on a drinking spree. Stage 8: Make sure that your notes will be accessible when you need it. If you’ve written them down on paper, encode them or take a picture of them, and put them on the cloud. Don’t just let them sit inside your drawer. Stage 9: Do a review. Would you go again to the event if you get the chance? Did you learn a lot? Were you able to expand your network?  BEST MOMENTS “The really successful people are probably at a one event per week.” “If you’ve done some prep, whenever they start engaging with the audience and the moment comes around where there is awkward silence and you become the person to fill it, you’ll be remembered fondly.” “It’s not about you handing yours; it’s about sucking in stuff from other people.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Sometimes You Simply Have To Hang On By Your Fingernails Before The Solutions Start To Open Up

Don’t give up, even though you see zero to minimal chances of getting back up. There are still ways on how you can reclaim your power and continue building your legacy. They may have not crossed your mind because of all your worries and doubts about the future. Believe that solutions will start showing up! Gavan shares in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast what he had to do just to not give up any of his projects. Truly, it’s devastating to let something fail. Learn how you can still save that passion project or enterprise of yours when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS 10 Little Breakthroughs Gavan Had When He Was Juggling Stuff: Collaborate with other people. Considering that The Speed Mentor Podcast releases daily episodes, sometimes, coming up with new topics gets difficult. Good thing that Gavan and Matthew Thompson are going to have special episodes for their podcasts. This immediately helped him lessen his load. Working on his Project ‘X’ has helped him lessen the pressure on producing content for the podcast. Every episode doesn’t have to be a work of art. It doesn’t have to give the solutions to the big problems. Think of it as a companion to people who are starting their entrepreneur journey. Don’t be so anal of what goes into each episode. Let your horizon expand. It doesn’t have to be so niche. He doesn’t have to spend so much time preparing for each episode. Everything needs balance. Now he has time for his other work and family. He used to record the episodes in a batch of 5, but this creates more pressure. Gavan now does it at his own pace and if his surroundings (e.g. no noise) will allow. He delegated some of his work. Some people will just on the sidelines and not offer help. Expect nothing. And be wary. Some would rush towards you as soon as they see you achieving success. The greatest leaders accept that they can be vulnerable. BEST MOMENTS “Those little breakthroughs can come if you’re resilient enough.” “The best leaders evidence vulnerability.” “Just as I think I can handle no more, things start falling into place.” “once you start and others see what you’re doing and you’re adding value to the world… it’s truly amazing how tiny things can come together to help you achieve what you thought is impossible.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Wall Group VRCityX – Belfast’s VR Arcade Matt Thompson Podcast Dare to Lead – Brene Brown ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

If The 'Working 9 to 5' Mindset Is Killing You, I Can Help

Tired, stressed, and burned out? Today, we put a halt on those complaints about your 9 to 5 job.  In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan helps you gain new perspectives about your work. Is it something you really want? Is it giving you fulfilment? Will it get you to your ultimate goal? Let’s shake things up and finally see the opportunities outside where you’re in. Learn why you should reconsider and know what you should do if you find yourself stuck in this situation. Maybe it’s high time you take the leap. KEY TAKEAWAYS Telltale signs that the 9 to 5 work is NOT for you! You think you have something bigger meant for you than this. Your subconscious knows that you shouldn’t be stuck in your 9 to 5 job.  You always have these small business ideas or passion projects. Your mind wanders to the possibilities of using creativity and innovation to start anew. You compare yourself to others. You imagine yourself in their place with the success and happiness they’re having. You feel the need to ‘de-stress’ after your work. You feel no sense of contentment in your work, so you resort to end the day with alcohol, for example. You’re struggling to concentrate during the day. You don’t have the motivation so you become lazy and unproductive in work.   You’re more excited about your side hustle than your 9 to 5 work. BEST MOMENTS “Happiness is the true metric in which all else is judged.” “The weekend warrior syndrome is the strong signal that you’re unfulfilled in your working life.” “Your parents might still try to push you down on that route of a professional career as the be-all and the end-all, but opportunities have been democratised in so many ways.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

It's Time To Release Your Very Own Superpower, LISTENING, And Then Watch Your Outcomes Flourish

Social interactions are what we do daily as entrepreneurs, but somehow, some of us still have not mastered the art of it. Effective communication is vital if you want to build partnerships or just grow your following. Know that you hold the key to make this happen, and it starts with listening. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan teaches you how to listen effectively and actively. People undermine this skill, but the truth is when you’ve harnessed your superpower of listening, nothing can go wrong. It’s easier to influence, to bring value to people, and to reach your goal. Listening involves hearing, understanding, processing, and properly responding to the other party, verbally and non-verbally. Discover more when you listen. KEY TAKEAWAYS There are too many distractions in our surroundings, and they’re keeping it difficult to actively listen to who you’re communicating with. Gavan suggests you practise meditation as it helps you easily detach from these. Show your concern for others. There might be much bigger problems than yours. If your aim is to make a valuable impact on someone, then the act of listening to their concerns becomes effortless. “Listening is an art that requires attention over talent, spirit over ego, others over self.” – Dean Jackson Understand what the other party is saying. Don’t rush into judgment and give comments uncalled for. Be patient – your opinion will be asked, eventually. Non-verbal communication is as important as verbal communication. Establish eye contact right away. If it’s face-to-face, then the use of mobile phones should be at minimal unless needed. There’s nothing more displeasing than to make the person unwelcomed. BEST MOMENTS “Listening is a superpower.” “When we ACTUALLY listen, we are going much much deeper when we’re processing, receiving and understanding everything that goes with the words and sounds.” “Leaders need to be empathic, and to be empathetic, you need to listen and be present.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Headspace Meditation App ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Hosting Your Own Events Is A Huge Building Block To If You Want To Raise Your Profile And Build Your Brand

There’s nothing more effective to engage with your followers and build trust with them than meeting them face to face. Organising an event isn’t as easy as you think. There are many things to take into consideration before you host your own event, so in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares everything you need to know-from marketing to selling to documenting the whole event.  To share value with other people is such a fulfilling act, aside from the fact that you also elevate your position in your niche. Start learning so you can successfully host your own event! KEY TAKEAWAYS Things To Consider Before Organising Your Own Event: Make sure you’ve built your personal and social capital in social media. It’s easier to disseminate information and sell tickets when you’ve already established your presence in social media. Use FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) to increase your ticket sales. Offer an early bird rate for a limited time. Success isn’t based on whether you sell out your event. It should be based on whether you have delivered your objectives effectively. No matter what the event is about, aim to take the attendees outside of their comfort zone. Consider looking at niche areas. Try collaborating with other entrepreneurs and hold even a micro-event. Surprise the public with the possibilities of collaborations. Document your event so you can make a showreel that you can use in your next events. If you’re running on a limited budget, get creative on your marketing strategies. You can offer free tickets to a few who can help make some noise on the social media to get the interest of others. Check out what other events are happening in your area. The last thing you want is competing with an event that’s very similar to yours. Partner with someone if you don’t have the means to do the logistics, market, and sell tickets. Grab the opportunity to signpost your attendees into your wider ecosystem. Get their contact information so you can include them in your mailing list. Get sponsorship from companies to help you with your other needs. Don’t be afraid to approach them, since most likely your event will be a good avenue to also market their products and services. Partner with a charity, so your help and support also extend to those who are at a disadvantage. BEST MOMENTS “It’s a waste of time waiting for a top-down solution as it’s unlikely to ever arrive. We need to mount a velvet glove revolution from the ground up.” “The ability to do these things have been democratised with the dawn of social media.” “If you worry that you can put up an event, just start smaller.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: Want to Maximise The Impact of Your CSR and Charitable Work, Here’s How! | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Learn From Edwin Barnes, A True Rags To Riches Story

“There is but one thing in this world that I am determined to have, and that is a business association with Thomas A. Edison. I will burn all bridges behind me and stake my entire future on my ability to get what I want.” Are you determined as Edwin C. Barnes? For those who aren’t aware, Barnes achieved this goal if his-he could work the greatest investor of all time. From nothing, he could get where he wanted to be. There were doubts and rejection from people around him, but he didn’t let them distract him. He persevered, saved up some money, grabbed the opportunity, mustered the courage to pitch to Thomas Edison, and finally partner with him. Very inspiring. Discover more about Edwin C. Barnes’ story when you tune in! KEY TAKEAWAYS Edwin Barnes wasn’t rich and didn’t have any established network who can help him. But he said to himself that he’ll be working with Thomas Edison, the greatest inventor, whether or not he likes it.  “Massive action put you where good luck will find you.” Barnes was very determined to make this happen. When the opportunity finally knocked on his door, he instantly grabbed it. He’s got nothing, but he saved up all his earnings just to aid in selling Edison’s Dictating Machine.  “I do not wear thirty-one suits of clothes entirely for the impression they make on other people; I do it mostly for the impression they have on me.” – Edwin C. Barnes Edison’s dictating machine sold thousands of pieces. It grew rapidly that he had to establish his own business, Edwin C. Barnes and Brothers, to keep up with the demand. BEST MOMENTS “How many of you have one foot in commitment and the other foot in the safety of land?” “You can’t achieve anything of significance if you don’t have a plan and a made-up mind just like Barnes’.” “We all have this ability inside us.

Room 101 For Corporate Speak

Welcome back to The Speed Mentor Podcast! In this episode, Gavan gives us the top 10 overused expressions in the corporate world. Some of these you may have a heard a couple of times that they already have lost their meaning in you. Some of these jargons you’ll think twice if they still serve their purpose anymore in a corporate sense. Start tuning in so you can start judging if they still belong in Room 101 for Corporate Speak. For beginners, today’s discussion serves as a good introduction to the corporate world! KEY TAKEAWAYS “Socialise it.” In business, it means to get people to agree with. “There’s no ‘I’ in team.” We only encounter this statement when we experience no teamwork in the team. “Let’s circle back.” This is just a code to move on to the next subject and discuss it on the next meeting. “Open-door policy.” If we’re being honest, we only choose the information we want to disclose when this happens. “Joined-up thinking.” Whenever they want to brainstorm about complex ideas, they use this statement. “Stakeholders.” There’s a stakeholder analysis, a technique used to identify who are the stakeholders. “Think outside the box.” This was used to make something edgy but this have gone meaningless now. “I don’t have the bandwidth.” Some people used this when they want to say that they don’t have the time and energy to waste it to some task. “Ideas czar.” “Low-hanging fruit.” It means the easiest stuff to do. BEST MOMENTS “Let’s discuss it once, make a decision, and get on the next matter on the agenda.” “There’s value in the term stakeholder even if some use it to make themselves sound important.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t by Simon Sinek ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

If You Want Productive Kids, Here's The Hack For You

Time management is something that should be taught to kids as early as possible. This teaches them how to value time and give importance to what they use it for.  Today on The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares how he opens his kids’ eyes to the importance of time so they know how to use it wisely. For those with hectic schedules, Gavan shows us how he spends his time with his family. It might also be a great influence to the kids if they see from their parents how no-nonsense they are in being productive. Discover more hacks you can try when you tune in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Gavan makes sure that when he sees a free time in his schedule, he spends quality time with each of his kids. Every kid gets a half-hour time slot, which he and the kids plan together. This kind of practice also teaches them about time management.  Spend your work breaks with your kids. It helps you boost your energy that got depleted from working, aside from strengthening your bond with them.  Don’t bring the stress of work into your own home. What Gavan does is before he gets off his car and enters the house, he takes two minutes to visualise first how he wants to spend the next couple of hours with his family.  BEST MOMENTS  “Productivity and the can-do attitude can take you far and provide abundance for you and those around you.”  “Share your time really well, rather than just be in present with them.”   VALUABLE RESOURCES  The Speed Mentor Podcast: Stop Kissing Frogs & Start Eating Them | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher  The Speed Mentor Podcast: Nail Your Morning Routine | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher  The Five Elements of the 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

When you’ve learned how to manage your time properly, opportunities to improve yourself show up. New ideas come up, relationships grow, and positivity shows.  Start tuning in to learn more about how to be productive.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  You’ve got 24 hours per day. Learn how to manage your time. Maximise every single minute.  Eat that frog! It becomes easier when we prioritise doing the most difficult task. Energy is a lot higher at the beginning of each day.  Beat the procrastination.   All time must be scheduled. Not just your work should consume your time.

Outsource tasks to someone else if you need to so you can focus more on high-value tasks.  One Touch Rule. Once a task presents itself, start doing it. Don’t let success wait.  Practice a consistent morning routine. Consume lots of water, good food, and gratitude.  BEST MOMENTS  “Time isn’t short supply.

How To Be The Perfect Mentee, To Get More From Your Mentoring

When you’ve done looking the perfect mentor for you, it’s time to learn what you should do to be the perfect mentee. Discover how you can maximise the benefits of the mentor-mentee relationship today. It’s not just the expertise of your mentor that is needed. The mentee should also be insightful, adaptable, and ready to take action among others. It’s a two-way street, as they say. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan gives his 15 (+2!) tips on how to be the perfect mentee. Stick these in your heart, mind, and soul, so you can achieve success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Pick the right mentor for you. Do your research and ask around for feedback and others’ experiences. It doesn’t matter how much you spend on mentorships. Make sure that the knowledge, guidance, and support you need will manifest from the relationship. Don’t worry about how long it will take to achieve success. The Law of Attraction is sh#t. Nothing will happen if you wait and do nothing. You got to do the needed steps to create the attraction. The more you prepare for mentorship, the more you will get out of it. Keep a notebook where you can record all that you’ve learned, your thoughts you want to share on meetings, and everything else that can help you. Think about what you want before you start as a mentee. Don’t waste each other’s time. It’s difficult to start from nothing. Take everything as constructive criticism. Trust your mentor. It is most likely that he sees something that you need to change or improve so you could reach your goals. Embody the identity of someone who learns no matter what. Be committed. Your mentor is just here to guide you, not do things for you. Do what you need to do. Impress your mentor more to get him/her more engaged. Force your mentor on to the back foot with your tenacity. Be open with your mentor. Share new ideas and confide your worries to your mentor. He / She will definitely be a big help. Respect their time. Be grateful for their output. Follow through. Achieve more success. Celebrate your role as a mentee. Be proud that you’re doing the steps to improve yourself and that you’re investing in yourself. Do the work. Do the work! DO THE WORK! BEST MOMENTS “Your entrepreneurial journey isn’t meant to be travelled alone. All journeys of discovery are best on guidance.” “There are no shortcuts to success.” “All human interactions and engagements are based on a two-way street.” “Determine what you’re gonna deliver and blow your mentor away.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Let's Talk About Money And How To Get More Of It

Today, we change the narrative around money. It isn’t entirely virtuous, and it isn’t entirely evil. It’s just it—an object. It’s a vehicle that we should learn how to drive towards a fulfilling success. It’s how we perceive it we need to be careful of. We have to change our mindset on how to use it, produce it, and share with others. So, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares his 20 things to think about when you’re dealing with money. These ideas can help you grow and expand your streams of income in the right way. After tuning in, make sure you leave your ideas, feedback, comments, etc.  The first six walruses who send a screenshot of their review to Gavan and use the hashtags #ShowMeTheMoney #iAmAWallrus will get a copy of Rob Moore’s book, Money: Know More, Make More, Give More. KEY TAKEAWAYS Money is neither good nor evil; it’s just an inanimate object. The pleasure or greed you feel when in possession of money is of your own. Money doesn’t have feelings. Change your mindset over money. We must learn not to deflect our emotions, good or bad, onto money. The most common outcome will be to overindulge yourself, so to feel a certain high from having it. Don’t be a money hater. Money is a tool that can bring you the comfortability and contentment in your life. Don’t misuse money to deal with other people’s emotions. To define the love and support in any relationship as financial help would not sustain it. Money ends up with rich people. Take note instead is that money flows to those who want to share it to others in any form, such as knowledge, expertise, and support. Money is a limitless resource. Stop with that scarcity mindset. Start being generous to those who are around you. Don’t undervalue yourself. You don’t have to stick to a low-paying job since there are opportunities out there. Know that you’re worth it and there are much more companies that would be glad to have a talent like yours in their team. Treat money with respect at all times and treat it like you’ve earned it. Rather than thinking about earning money is just a single transaction, think of it as a flow. It is recycled and reused by the producers. How do you manage your money? Do you have an emergency fund? Do you save money? Do you help charities? When you received money, you already have provided value. Money isn’t working when it’s not moving. Don’t let your money sit in a bank account. Let it grow. “Be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful.”–Warren Buffett Always protect the downside. Don’t compare yourself to others. Only think of how you can develop yourself further. Who’s got money and what can you do for them? Work out your hourly rate. Think about JVs or strategic partnerships with banks. Don’t spend beyond your means. BEST MOMENTS “There’s nothing wrong if you want to have financial success in your life.” “Money flows to producers, and the producers—they value it and they value themselves.” “Spend money, and spend it sensibly, so you can attract money to you.” “Offer your ideas, your innovation, your team, your project to the world. Showcase them all, get them up in social, and let the world and money be seduced by you.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Money: Know More, Make More, Give More by Rob Moore The Speed Mentor Podcast: Winners Produce, Losers Consume | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

You Are What You THINK You Are

If you were asked the question, “Who are YOU?”, and you were to answer in an instant, what will be your answer? Was it something that’s positive? Negative? Or did your mind go blank? For Gavan, his clear answer was ‘The Future #1 Entrepreneur in Northern Island.’ Today on The Speed Mentor Podcast, let Gavan help you have clarity on how you perceive your whole self. When you know who you are and what you want to be, it’s easier to answer those kinds of question. It’s also simple now to start your grand plan when you know yourself from within. Remember that what others see in us is what we think of ourselves. Learn how you can manifest those thoughts for yourself fully when you tune in. “You are your most important asset.” KEY TAKEAWAYS What we think of ourselves will manifest on our behaviours and actions, so what people see that we do are based on our own thinking. If we think we’re worthy and capable, we start doing tasks that will fit in with our own definition of us, and people will also see that. 6 THINGS TO DO to get to know yourself: You must believe that what you’re doing is important. You must maintain an ongoing conversation with yourself to sense check yourself. You are what you think you are. Upgrade your horizons. The bigger your goal is the larger the abundance that you’ll receive. How do you talk to other people? How do you deal with achievements and failures? Start consuming worthy resources to learn from. (Bonus) What would Gavan do? BEST MOMENTS “You are who you think you are or you are what you think or you become what you think.” “The tell-tale signs about who you are, about who you think you are often found in the reactions and engagements with those who we come in contact with.” “How you act will determine the reaction of others.” “Just the fact that people know I spend time working on my mindset changes their impression of me.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: Everything is Energy | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

How To Deal With Trolls & Haters And Get Advantage From Them

As you gain more success, you gain more traction on social media. It won’t all be believers and followers, sometimes, there will be a handful of trolls and haters that you need to deal with. So today on The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares the 13 rules you need to follow when engaging in your social media. Most of the time, these haters, trolls, and gas lighters provoke you and your other followers deliberately to get strong, negative reactions. When you encounter them, take a deep breath and think twice before responding. There’s much you can do to turn things the other way around without you stooping down to their level. Start discovering how you can deal with them in so many ways when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS 13 Rules when engaging in your social media: Do not ever post negatively on other people’s timelines. Keep it in a positive light if you’re sharing your thoughts and feedback. It’s not usually about you; it’s usually about them. Most of the time, when some are feeling a bit pessimistic about themselves, they tend to lash out on other people. If you’re getting at least 93% great feedback, you don’t need to worry about the other comments. Select what social media platform you’re on. Gavan suggests you choose LinkedIn since it has a more ‘civilised’ atmosphere. Learn to separate constructive criticism and trolling. Also, beware of people who gaslight. If you’re receiving too much abuse, Gavan advises that you wear that abuse like a badge of honour. Make use of the ‘unfollow’ and the ‘block’ options. Cut off the toxicity. Let some negative stuff into your timeline. You need some of these to learn from so you can grow. Review their timelines to gauge the credibility of their comments. Unmask the trolls. Correct factual mistakes. Thank them for their comments. Ignore them. BEST MOMENTS “Always keep your comment online positively.” “Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into distrusting his own memory and perception.” “There’s a lovely serenity when order is restored for your universe when the negativity is gone.” “No matter how negative they are, say something nice back.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Tim Ferriss Blog Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Want to Maximise The Impact of Your CSR and Charitable Work, Here's How!

What’s a more fulfilling way to market your business than to strengthen programs with social, economic and environmental relevance? There might be none.  Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has a lot of positive impacts on the business, its people, and the community, in general. It’s a nice investment not just for corporations but also the SMEs. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shows you how you can maximise the impacts of your CSR and charitable work. He prepared 16 helpful tips that you could take into mind when planning and deciding. But remember that while we do want to grow our business, the main goal of CSR is to contribute value to the community whole-heartedly.  KEY TAKEAWAYS  Live Aid was a rock concert organised to raise money for famine relief in Africa and was held simultaneously at the Wembley Stadium in London and at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia on July 13, 1985. There was also a live television broadcast in more than 100 countries. Live Aid brought awareness to the important issues in third world countries.  There’s no harm in flaunting the things you do good for society. It just doesn’t boost your CSR and serves as a marketing scheme; it also encourages other people to do something about the current issues.  How to maximise the impact of your charitable giving:  Stop giving small bits here and there. Build a full CSR agenda.  Select a charity or two and make them the official go-to for your business.  Build a relationship with them.  Take advantage and be benefitted with their marketing strategies also.  Utilise social media.  Organise at least two charitable events in a year.  Join industry awards competitions for CSR work.  Some excess in your products and services might be valuable for others.  Corporates know how to do these kinds of stuff ruthlessly. SMEs should do the same.  It doesn’t have to be always about charity; you can share your knowledge, your skills, and your time to those who need them.  You add value to them also when they get associated with your organisation’s name, given that you’ve established credibility and authority.  Keep the charitable element of your event close to your heart.  Actively participate in your events.  Create a big annual event.  Make a massive difference.  BEST MOMENTS  “Giving back is so important. It’s good for your soul and it’s good for the less fortunate around you.”  “If you believe in a cause or charity, and you’re involved in any way, make sure that you showcase it.”  “You’ll be more driven to deliver if the cause is close to your hearts when the going gets tough.”  “It’s good for the soul, and it’s good for the less fortunate around you.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  ‘Live Aid’ Concert Raises $127 Million for Famine Relief in Africa | History.com  The Speed Mentor Podcast: Industry Awards Ceremonies; Waste of Time or Essential Marketing | Stitcher | Apple | Spotify  Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

If You Want Great Relationships, Give Love Unconditionally and Give It First

Stop doubting and being frightened of the outcome. If you feel like there’s a relationship that could blossom from here and now, then give it a shot! Same goes with conflicts – if it’s a relationship worth saving in where you see love and growth, do everything to resolve it. The last thing you want is to regret about 'not doing anything'. You shouldn’t worry if you think you’re giving more. Love and compassion shouldn’t be offered with limits. If giving it to a certain person will give you fulfilment, despite not getting the same amount from them, then just do it. Keep an eye on worthy connections – don’t let them go and let them grow. KEY TAKEAWAYS Be the bigger person. Don’t wait for the other person to make the first move on either expressing their true feelings or fixing the relationship. You got to be the one who should go first. The last thing you want is to live with regrets. If unconditional love is in the centre of every relationship, it’s easier to get through the negative happenings that are encountered. There is a supply of unlimited support and guidance from each other. Share love, compassion, and support unconditionally. It doesn’t matter if you get rejection or you don’t get something in return. You’ll get satisfaction and fulfilment when you see that some might appreciate it. BEST MOMENTS “it’s time to look at every relationship that we have in our lives and say to yourself, “Am I holding back?” “It’s all about unconditional love, not loving someone because they do something that pleases you or they do something for you or they follow the path you approve of.” “Instead of spending your time judging, punishing, holding back, reciprocating the non-fatal flesh wounds, and raising those eyebrows, free yourself to love and give unconditionally.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

If You're Struggling To Make Money, Try These ideas Out For Size

You’ve got bills to pay, mouths to feed, and a future to save for. But, how’s it going with your finances so far? If you’re struggling to make ends meet and need to make more money, then this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast might give you clarity on what to do next. Gavan shares 25 ideas you can do. He did these in the past and have proven to be money-making. Choose something that you can be good at and something you could commit to doing. Step out of your comfort zone if you have to! Start lessening the anxiousness you have around your financial status. KEY TAKEAWAYS 25 Different Things Gavan Had To Do To Earn Money: Gavan was fascinated with money even at an early age. He was learning about businesses, stocks, and managing finances while other people were obsessed with material things. He asked for a sewing machine for a Christmas present when he was 13 years old. People around him were shocked by his choice, but this taught him not to mind what haters say about him as long as he likes doing it. He convinced his parents to leave him pocket money which he then saves up. He got hair clippers and scissor set when he was 14 years old, and he cut his friends’ hair to earn money. He built a patio when he was 16 years old and made ‎£170-profit. Gavan worked as a manager of the band during his teenage years. He ventured in money-lending. He used to buy and sell records. He worked as a janitor for a hospital when he was 17. He was a security guard at Columbia Tri-Star Pictures. He tried making money out of gambling. The good side is he learned about taking risks, but the bad side is it’s addictive and a really bad income-generating habit. Gavan bought home working kits. He was a barman in the 2nd most famous bar in Belfast. He participated in paid clinical trials. He’s a painter, and he made money by selling his artworks. He sold car insurance. He sold double glazed windows. He had multiple franchises of international phone cards. He built his property portfolio. He got into share dealing. He practised public speaking. He has been a solicitor, a barrister, a franchiser, and a mentor. He’s a podcaster. BEST MOMENTS “There’s always an extra few quid to be made in whatever you got to do or from whatever opportunity that you’re not doing in the minute.” “There’s always opportunity if you’re looking out for it.” “I know that when if I want to do something, create something, or build something, the opportunity and the money is out there.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Are You Suffering From 'EXCUSE-ITIS'... Let's Dig Deep and Cure It With The Speed Mentor

According to the Collins Dictionary website, 'excuse-itis', a new word suggestion, can mean a mediocre person who is suffering from the sickness of mental disease of MAKING EXCUSES every time that aren’t made by the successful person. Now, do you have this failure disease? Let’s start treating it properly once you tune in to this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast! Gavan gives a rundown of the types of 'excuse-itis' that you should avoid becoming so you can finally take a step forward in your life. Some of these are stuff you might not even know you’re telling yourself. Start changing that mindset for the better, take risks, and stop making excuses. Discover more today when you listen in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Types of Excusitis: “It’s too hard!” – To move on to the next step, you have to put increase your efforts every time, even it’s beyond your capacity. “I don’t know how to do it.” – If you don’t have the knowledge and the skills, learn. There are many free resources online that you can use. Also, approach like-minded people for their experience and advice. “I don’t have the time.” – Stop procrastinating, and do what needs to be done. If you keep putting off tasks, even how little are them, they will continue to pile up. “Someone did it before me, and I’ve missed my chance.” – Competition in the market is healthy. Let it motivate you to put something out that is better and more valuable. “What if other people have a negative opinion of me if I try new stuff?” – Stop minding the opinion of others and start your journey to personal development. “I can’t afford it.” – When it comes to investing in yourself, those are essentials to keep you and your business growing. “What about bad luck?” – As Gavan says, “what can go wrong will go wrong.” Stop worrying what will be the outcome, and think instead that in the end, you’ll be learning some out of it. “I’m too young/too old.” – Success doesn’t have an age qualification. As early as possible, start chasing for it! BEST MOMENTS “There aren’t mediocre people, but there are mediocre outcomes.” “It’s not too hard. You just don’t want to put the effort in.” “You don’t need to be the first, you just need to be the best.” “Even though you can’t be the first or the best, if the market opportunity is big enough, it still doesn’t matter as long as you’re good.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Comparison is the Thief of Joy - Stop Benchmarking Against Others

The only one who you can compete with, who you can compare yourself with, who you can benchmark against… is Yourself!  Yes, that’s right. We can be inspired and educated by all the successful entrepreneurs we idolised, but we can never compare ourselves to them. This can instantly bring you down and slow you in your journey. What you should really put into your mind are your daily improvements and milestones! Gavan prepared a list of 10 topics that you can start tracking weekly, so you can make sure that you’re achieving personal development.  Tune in to today’s episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast to know more about it!  KEY TAKEAWAYS   There’s a lot of inspiring entrepreneurs and thought leaders out there. You can read about their lives and listen to what they’re saying, but don’t ever compare yourself to them.  Make a spreadsheet so you can keep track of your OWN metrics. Gavan suggests you evaluate weekly. Score yourself (zero being the lowest and 10 being the highest) on each of the following topics:  Morning routine  Alcohol intake  Stop selling/start creating value  Massive action  Building your own unstoppable mindset  Investing in yourself  What’s your gratitude like?  How are your procrastination levels?  How rigorous is your goal-setting?  Gratification  “Comparison is the thief of joy” – Theodore Roosevelt  Why Sylvester Stallone is an inspiration:  He has partial face paralysis and people made fun of it but he didn’t mind this.  He couldn’t get hired when he moved to New York and ended up homeless, but still worked really hard to be an actor. He never gave up.  BEST MOMENTS  “You’re better benchmarking yourself against your own potential!”  “It doesn’t matter where you are now. it doesn’t matter where you’ve been. It only matters that you stop competing with others and start benchmarking yourself against yourself.”  VALUABLE RESOURCES  Develop An Unstoppable Mindset And Deliver Your Gorilla Goals on June 27 at Bullitt Hotel  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Let's Talk About Money - The Last Taboo Subject

It doesn’t mean that if you’re a billionaire, you’re a leecher. Our minds were fed with the idea that money is evil, but it isn’t. Money is the by-product of success, and it could benefit not just you, but the other individuals as well. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan discusses how you can achieve wealth for you and for others. In this way, it becomes more fulfilling and satisfying to know that you’re contributing value to others. For example, Gavan’s most wanted desire is to help North Belfast as a whole grow and prosper. There’s no harm in aiming for financial success. Discover more today when you tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS What’s the tipping point for the millionaire mindset? Time becomes more valuable than money. “Develop your own self, your net worth, your contacts, your knowledge, your expertise, your experience, etc. at such a level that no one will ask you about your hourly rate.” Who and where should I add value? It makes a big difference if this becomes your top priority instead of thinking about how you will be paid in return. Gavan is really determined to put North Belfast on the map in terms of its economic status. He also wants to create wealth for himself and for the people around him. BEST MOMENTS “Money is not intentionally evil. Money is not intentionally good. It’s just an inanimate object.” “It’s the pursuit of adding value that is the truest path in achieving wealth.” “Let’s make technological advancement part of the next history of North Belfast!” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Is it the Fear of Success That's Holding You Back Rather than the Fear of Failure

Aren’t you tired of mediocrity?  Most of you might be fearful of getting out of comfortability and familiarity, that’s why you refuse to change a thing around you. Gavan says you shouldn’t.   In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan convinces you to step out of the rat hole called mediocrity. Always aim for evolution and growth, so you become successful. The 6 pointers on how to overcome the fear of success will surely help you. Make sure to take down notes as you listen in.  KEY TAKEAWAYS   Change is the first step to success. If you’ve been very comfortable of that spot you’re in and refuses to budge, don’t expect any development in your life. You have to get out of your comfort zone and understand that opportunities for you are infinite.  Most of us fear that a big change might rattle the relationships that we already have. If they’re content with what they see in you and themselves, then show them how to embrace what can also change in their lives for the better. Leave the toxic relationships behind if need be.  6 Pointers On How To Overcome the Fear of Success:  Make a list of what you’re scared of, and rethink if it’s actually scary.  Visualise what it is that you want to achieve.  Get very specific about your goals.  You need to get out of your own way.  If you’re fear of succeeding, it’s tied tightly to a fear that you’ll lose what you already have.  Start networking.  BEST MOMENTS  “Fear to change is the enemy of success.”  “Humility is a good thing, but not if it’s suppressant of what’s inside of you.”  “You’re the average of the five people you stand the most time with.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

How to Ace a Job Interview

For sure, there might be a lot of people queueing to get that dream job of yours. So, how do you make sure that you emerge as the champion after the battle royal?  In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares 10 great tips on how to ace a job interview. You can’t just enter the room unprepared. If you want to get that job, then you better make sure you got everything you need or else, you’ll get eaten alive. Don’t waste the once in a lifetime opportunity to improve your life.  But don’t step into a new thing right away. Gavan advises that if you have a job right now that you loathe, try to tweak things a bit, so your perspective about your workplace changes.  Start listening in to know more!  KEY TAKEAWAYS   Work on yourself. You shouldn’t rely on your personal development and growth to others. Invest in yourself. Aim to learn and grow every day.   Do your research on the business. Check their official website and their accounts on social media platforms. What are they talking about, and what are they not talking about?   Prep yourself for the job interview. Read the job description for the role. Most employers will ask pretty similar questions, so there’s no excuse for being ready. Check sample interview questions online.  Dress to impress. First impression matters. Carefully plan what you are going to wear on your interview.  Practice that handshake. Shake their hands firmly with eye contact.  Tell your face that you’re happy to be there. Smile.  Meditate. Practice breathing deeply.  You are your own USP – unique selling point. Be your authentic self. Let your personality shine out.  Enthusiasm for the job itself.  Never say negative stuff about your previous or current employer.  BEST MOMENTS  “Dedicate yourself to much success in your current role as you possibly can. Give it your best shot.”  “Time is well-invested if you’re genuinely interested in your future.”  “People like to employ and hire people.”  “The more often you get outside your comfort zone, the more often you push yourself to be stressed, the better you can handle your emotions.”  “I don’t wait for the door to be knocked or a job interview to be advertised. I go and kick the door down to see if somebody’s home.”  ABOUT THE HOST  Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.  Do you want success and abundance in your life?!  Do you want to hear how to achieve it?  Then you’ve come to the right place where the world’s only Speed Mentor, Gavan Wall will mainline you with micro bite-sized chunks of inspiration fused with knowledge, built into a daily routine to help you deliver success.  After walking away, a decade ago from his gilded life as a leading Barrister and property investor, Gavan Wall started his entrepreneurial career in inauspicious circumstances as he lost everything in the property crash.  But he refused to give up, re-building a financial fortress from scratch, until now he leads multiple successful multi-million £ companies across FMCG, Franchise, Tech, Property and Mentoring.  He’s the Speed Mentor and serial entrepreneur, who shares with you all the breadcrumbs of success and just as importantly the failures.

Five Books That Changed My Life!

The best way to learn about success is to read about the stories of individuals who have already achieved them. In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares the 5 Books (and more!) that changed his life. Some of you might have even heard a book or two being mentioned from the previous episodes. This is a great reminder to take time to avail them, whether it be an audiobook or a physical copy. These books might ignite that passion once more and finally, start planning on how to take action. It’s time to get inspiration and be motivated! Tune in to know more. KEY TAKEAWAYS Leverage time. Gavan prefers listening to audiobooks over reading books so that he can do other important stuff while he’s learning. 5+ Books That Changed Gavan’s Life: The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber - It’s about the entrepreneurial myth that people who start a small business are entrepreneurs. It explains 3 personality types in each business owner: Entrepreneur, Manager, and Technician. Built to Sell by John Warrillow – it’s a great complementary reading, since it discusses topics that haven’t been addressed in The E-Myth. The Chimp Paradox by Professor Steve Peters – Gavan suggests reading this in paper-form, as it can be a good reminder to achieve your goals. Total Recall by Arnold Schwarzenegger – Arnold Schwarzenegger had experience in sport, property, politics, movies, and business, where we could all learn from. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill – It was written in 1937 after 25 years of research on the world’s most successful individuals. It’s one of the most recognised personal development pieces. Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed – This book helped Gavan when he was having cognitive dissonance while making business decisions. Life Leverage by Rob Moore – This is an excellent read for those who want to level-up their life and achieve more. Gavan also suggests you listen to The Brian Buffini Show Podcast. In this podcast, Brian Buffini, an inspirational speaker and a raconteur, shares different resources. BEST MOMENTS “I’ve been able to work on my daughter and with my daughter on her ‘chimp’ so she doesn’t leave the carnage behind her that I did in my life.” “There are times that you need to do a tough work on yourself, but there’s other times that’s nice to listen to others who have achieve enormous success.” “It wasn’t the 90% that was the main thing. I was already doing that. It was the 10% that I hadn’t been doing that was so powerful.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It by Michael E.

Believe that you can change your surroundings. Educate yourself. Work out what success means to you.

How To Make Your Business Plan Stand Out

Many have asked about it, and Gavan is finally ready to reveal! Today in The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares the secret sauce that he has been using ever since in making his business plans. Discover how you can make your business plan to stand out and to serve its purpose to your prospect investors, partners, and staff. Gavan discusses the six essential parts of a business plan and his 17 great tips on how to create it. Start building a business that can survive and thrive in this market with or without you, so start listening in Walruses! KEY TAKEAWAYS 6 Essential Parts of A Business Plan: Executive Summary – It should highlight the key points of the whole business plan and can serve as a standalone document. What’s the opportunity? – This section should answer questions about what you’re selling, what need are you satisfying, and what market are you providing for. What’s the sales and marketing plan? – This section shall detail how you’ll reach your target market and how are you going to deliver what you offer. What’s your company and management plan? – This section should manifest how reliable is the company and the team. Consider putting in the bios of the people and the outsourcing tactics you’ll use in your business. What’s your financial plan? – Include the monthly sales and revenue projection for the first 12 months. Work out your profitability and cash flow. Appendices – Use this for the manuals, illustrations, figures, maps, etc. Establish first who will be your audience, the people who will benefit from what you will put out. Brevity is important. It should be clear and concise. Use a language that will be easily understood by the one who’ll need it – the investors, the customers, and the team. How to make your business plan stand out: Be confident. Get yourself plenty of time in writing it. Don’t be afraid to go over the top. Before you do your business plan, build up your public profile. Invest in a good mentor. Think deeply about your vision, your values, and your culture. Try out your idea. Think if you have any IP or trademarks. Don’t be too attached to your original idea. Ask yourself if your plan is scalable and monetizable. Know your acquisition cost per customer. Think about the benefits of a lean start-up. Know your USP. Build your personal brand. Leverage free marketing platforms online. Read The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber Make sure your business plan fits your personality and motivations. BEST MOMENTS “It’s all about the people and the innovation they bring.” “Some investors would invest in a mediocre idea with a great team behind it rather than an amazing idea with a mediocre team behind it.” “I don’t leave the narrative cold. I commit myself to the plan to show that I’m all in, and I have the history of doing what it takes to succeed.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: From Mentee to J.V.! | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The Speed Mentor Podcast: The Greatest Ever Tax Giveaway You May Not Know About | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What by Michael E.

Winners Produce, Losers Consume

In today’s episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan differentiates a producer from a consumer, a winner from a loser, and a successful entrepreneur from an unsuccessful entrepreneur. Yes, there is a fine line that sits in between them, and you can only choose one. If you decide to be a winner or a successful entrepreneur, then clearly, you have to be a producer. Know how you can become a producer for the benefit of the entire world and how you can achieve your desires by doing this when you tune in. Gavan hopes that after this episode, you’ll proudly shout: “I am a producer, and I no longer consume!” KEY TAKEAWAYS Unsuccessful people always think of what the world could offer them, in short, what they could consume. On the other hand, successful people think of what they could provide to the world – aka, what they could produce. Pareto Principle (80/20) – the majority of the results come from a minority of inputs. How do you become a producer and avoid being a consumer? Have a shift in your mindset. Instead of thinking what an institution does for you, think about what you can do for them. Being a producer does not mean you have to put out a particular product or service. To be a producer, what you offer is your time, energy, your education, your growth, your secret sauce, your integrity, your coaching, etc. – things that don’t even cost a thing. BEST MOMENTS “There are successful people, and there are those who lack success.” “Successful people believe they are servants, and once they learned how to produce and serve the others, they then become leaders.” “I never ask what will the world produce for me; I only ask what I can produce for the world.” “The more you produce, the more you get rewarded and the wealthier you become.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Social Media Detoxes Are Only for Losers

Who here has deactivated their social media accounts because they believe they got to detox from it? If you are one, then you have a problem that needs fixing! Why don’t you utilise social media to reach more people as it’s free and used by many people? Let Gavan help you today in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast to change your mind about this absurdity. As Gavan puts it, ‘you’re treating the symptom, not the cause.’ Learn how to implement your plans using social media platforms. If you think getting through it is difficult, then Gavan also has tips for you on how to attract and engage the audience through your content, so start tuning in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Social media is one of the best platforms out there to reach your audience. This is a fact. People prefer to consume content online nowadays rather than on print or on the television. Learn how you can utilise social media and let your voice be heard by people. Watch tutorial videos or take crash courses about social media marketing, SEO, etc. Post relevant and engaging content consistently. In the beginning, the numbers of engagement will be slow. But this shouldn’t matter since the content you’re posting will be there online for the all eternity for people to use up as resources. When you’ve already gained traction, then numbers can grow exponentially. Reasons why you’re going on a social media detox: You’re misusing social media. You’re not motivated with your own output. BEST MOMENTS “Social media detox isn’t the problem. It’s just feeding your problem.” “You have to show up every time you make a post.” “Use it for what it’s meant to be used for – to attract people to your brand, your message, your business, your strategy, and your plan.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

x10 Ways to Develop Your Mindset

“Get that beach bod ready!” is what most probably say since summer is coming. But Gavan wants you to do something more exciting this summer… He wants you to start developing your mindset in 10 simple ways! Too unconventional? Well, there’s no perfect time (and season) to get started than now to build your purpose, take action, and see yourself grow. Start laying the foundations today, so you start seeing developments every single day. He discusses more on these so listen in to this latest episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast! KEY TAKEAWAYS Developing a purpose in your life. As early as now, think about what you want to chase after for the rest of your life. For Gavan, when he decided to make his life purposeful at the age of 27, it has never been the same ever since. Build your self-confidence. Always try to get a win, even if they’re just minimal. Have the enthusiasm to affect others. If you work not only for yourself, you feel fulfilled. Develop expertise in your life. You don’t have to reach perfection; just demand yourself to be on an expert level if you’re looking to up your knowledge and skillset. Be prepared at all times. Prepare for what comes ahead, may it be opportunities or challenges, that may come any day. If you start believing that no one owes you anything, you start becoming your own rock. Never blame others about the outcomes of your actions and decisions. What image are you portraying? Be authentic of what you show to your believers. Gavan also advises that you evaluate situations first before you react. How is your character? Are you someone who refuses to back down, someone who’s opinionated, or someone who doesn’t like people? Have self-discipline. There are so many distractions in the world so learn how to refocus every now and then. Aim for excellence. The amount of energy and dedication you put in should be equal to the amount of reward that will come. BEST MOMENTS “I was determined to use the negative stuff in my life to make the decision that I wanted to get off rock bottom, and I was determined to push outside my comfort zone, grow every day, and be better the day I was before for the rest of my life.” “You’ll need that purpose to pull you through that powerful waves of the ocean as they crash against you and try to knock you off course.” “We cannot do this by ourselves. If we don’t exhibit the character of others, then who’s gonna help us grow?” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: Everything Is Energy Apple|Omny|Stitcher The Speed Mentor Podcast: Perfectionism is The Procrastinator’s Excuse Apple|Omny|Stitcher ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

The Greatest Ever Tax Giveaway You May Not Know About!

Listen in budding entrepreneurs, aspiring start-up owners, and investors! This episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast is an excellent introduction to the EIS and the SEIS, tax incentives that the UK government offers to help start-ups to get equity investments by giving tax reliefs to investors. Yes, that’s right. If you’re looking into investing in any business, learn about these two. Know their difference and what specific companies are granted with tax reliefs. Gavan also answers questions about investments: When is the right time to invest? What happens if I lost what I spent? And many more, so make sure to tune in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Always think of the risk when you’re going to invest. It’s either you get a positive or negative outcome, and if you take into mind this kind of reality, you won’t stress and fret about the capital you put in. Don’t just invest in something just because it’s your loved ones’. You think that by doing this you’re helping, but you’re not. You might sever the close tie more when it goes down south. So as much as possible, process what you’re going into. The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is designed to help smaller to higher-risk companies by offering tax relief on new shares. The Seed Investment Scheme (SEIS) provides tax reliefs more to high-risk companies. They focus on very early-stage companies. This offers a higher income tax relief (50% against the amount invested). BEST MOMENTS “Invest what you’re prepared to lose.” “Spread your investments.” “Seek investors that might be a good match for you. Invest and help them grow.” “You might just find that skills and finance could change anything for one or more of these start-ups. And maybe, it would change the course of your life too.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Dumb Sayings You Need to Stop Saying For Your Own Good!

Why don’t you start giving more thought about your conversations? Why don’t you just say what you mean and mean what you say? Stop falling into a trap and become one of the bluffers. In today’s episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan urges you to be more of a smart talker, presenter, or speaker. What comes out of your mouth must attract the degree of success that you want, and more importantly, you can deliver them excellently. Remember to think before you speak. Start listening in to know more also about some common lines that you should avoid saying (and avoid believing), so you can begin your journey to success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Room 101 was a long-running comedy show on BBC based on the torture room that George Orwell introduced in his book Nineteen Eighty-Four. What you say that belongs in Room 101, and what you should avoid: “All good things come to those who wait.” “I slept like a baby.” “The only person who can only trust is yourself.” “We cross the bridge when we come to it.” “Trust your guts.” “Everything happens for a reason.” “If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.” “Do what you love.” “Give a 110%.” “With all due respect, you’re fired.” “It is what it is.” BEST MOMENTS “The difference between knowing your sh#t and being able to level up with others who know their sh#t is the difference between achieving success and not achieving success.” “It happened that way because you let it happen that way. It happens that way, except when it doesn’t happen that way.” “Good things come to those who wait, but only the things that are left for those who hustle.” “If you’re gonna say something that others might find offensive, just say it or be quiet.” ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

The Greatest Showman; Live a Life Like PT Barnum

You may be wondering why Gavan chose to talk about The Greatest Showman today in the episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast. Well, believe it or not, for those who haven’t seen it, the protagonist, P.T. Barnum, is an entrepreneur! And Gavan is sure that you’ll learn something from him. Like everybody else, P.T. Barnum’s entrepreneurial journey was met with challenges, but he was able to get through them and live the life he wanted. This episode should be a good reminder that you can find inspiration around you, just like Gavan found The Greatest Showman. Also, if you want to hear Gavan belting the high notes of the songs from the soundtrack, then make sure not to miss this! KEY TAKEAWAYS The Greatest Showman is based on the story of P.T. Barnum’s creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus. It’s one of the top grossing live-action musical of all time. So, why talk about The Greatest Showman in this episode? Rarely that a story encompasses the story an entrepreneurial life. The soundtrack is amazing. Gavan held an event in 2018 where he also talked about P.T. Barnum’s journey to inspire others, and it could also inspire you. There’s an inspiration around us everywhere. T Barnum was an entrepreneur and a leader. He experienced serious challenges, from people mocking him to bad investments, but he continued to make his vision happen and help other people. He gave the misfits a place where they can be comfortable and explore their individuality. T. Barnum understood the importance of partnerships in growing business. He brought in Phillip Carlyle to help him. They had complementary skills, so it was good for the company. BEST MOMENTS “He doesn’t blame the journalist, he doesn’t blame Lind, and he doesn’t blame the bank. He sucks it up and realises that it was his own weakness that brought him exactly where he was with absolutely nothing.” T. Barnum started from humble beginnings, but he had a dream, and he found a way to make that happen.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Greatest Showman ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Stay Patient & Grow Exponentially

Do you believe in overnight success? Overnight success can happen, but it requires patience. So today, Gavan discusses the importance of being patient for you to grow exponentially. Growing your business is like growing a Chinese bamboo tree. If you want that overnight success, you have to put in a rigorous amount of time and energy, learn how to cope with failures, never give up, and never expect immediate results. Successful entrepreneurs also said that it took them years, and even decades for others, to get them where they are right now. Discover how you could master the art of patience in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast! KEY TAKEAWAYS Your journey could be likened to growing a Chinese bamboo tree. A Chinese bamboo tree requires regular nurturing even though you won’t even see it sprout on its first year. But in just five weeks, after you’ve seen the sapling, it can grow up to 90 feet. Growing the tree requires patience. They have to receive a right amount of sunlight and should be watered every day. Being ambitious is a good thing, but you have to take action and pursue your dreams if you really want to achieve them. Be patient as you go through the process and do the tasks that bring you there. BEST MOMENTS “Stay patient, and your own bamboo tree is gonna sprout soon.” “The darker the night; the brighter the day. The harder the struggle; the greater the reward.” “What are you gonna do with the seed you got? Because I know you’ve all got one inside of you. Are you gonna ignore it and pretend it’s not there just in case you looked foolish if it doesn’t sprout as quickly as you thought?” VALUABLE RESOURCES Chimp Paradox by Professor Steve Peters ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

The Speed Mentor Gets Interviewed by Niall Lawther CONTINUED

The wait is over! The insightful discussion continues! Here’s Part 2 of The Speed Mentor Podcast Special where Niall Lawther, the host of The Young Professional Podcast, interviews Gavan Wall. In this episode, discover the people who Gavan looks up to and serves as an inspiration in his journey. He owes a lot of his success to the learnings he got from them. Gavan says he’s very grateful because he’s in a position right where he can enjoy his life while helping other people by mentoring. Also, make sure to tune in because Gavan also gets to answer some non-business related and amusing questions from Niall! KEY TAKEAWAYS “It’s your choice.” Gavan will never forget what Rob Moore wrote on a letter addressed to him. These three words have struck him ever since and have helped him through his journey. “What’s the difference between me and them (on the stage)?” He contemplated this when he attended a convention in which successful people were invited to speak. He made the entrance wristband from Pendulum Summit 2018 as a visual cue for achieving his successes. From Richard Branson, one of his inspirations, he learned to build stronger teams. If you want to make your brand and utilise social media for marketing, you have to commit to posting quality content regularly. Gavan Wall wants to help more people, so he introduced the concept of speed mentoring. It has shown positive and long-lasting results. Don’t waste too much time to do things that you know you suck at doing in the first place. Instead, find your forte – the one that will bring you success – and focus on it. BEST MOMENTS “I really wanna achieve something. I wanna make a difference to myself and others.” “Personal brand is absolutely everything at the minute.” “If you’re a good person, you’re trying to do the right thing, you look after people, and you’re trying to bring people in your journey, don’t be afraid to commit.” VALUABLE RESOURCES Rob Moore The Speed Mentor Podcast: What Would Gavan Do #WWGD | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters The Young Professional Podcast by Niall Lawther | Apple | Spotify More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE GUEST Niall Lawther is the host of The Young Professional Podcast in where he sits down with successful entrepreneurs, investors, and business people.

All You Need to Know About Franchising

Franchises are REAL businesses. Stop listening to those snob entrepreneurs that say that and instead, talk to the Wall – Gavan Wall! In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan shares everything you need to know about franchising. Consider franchising as an option if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur. Systems, branding, marketing strategies are already set up. And if your business is already enjoying its success, turn it into franchise opportunities. The franchising scene is definitely something that starters would want to check. Start listening in to know more from The Speed Mentor! KEY TAKEAWAYS 10 Things Why You Should Be Considering Franchising: 50% of SMEs fail in their first four years, 66% of all business fail within ten years, and only a third of all SMEs have a lifespan of 10 years or more. Getting finance is more accessible in franchising. Most businesses don’t understand marketing. You have in-built support with other franchisees. When you’re a part of the franchise network, the operations manual and the brand standards can keep your business to a higher standard. Expansion is more natural in a franchise network. You don’t need experience in a particular market. There are franchises in every sector. There can be renewal opportunities. Go and ask the banks in your area about any franchising opportunities out there. HSBC finance 70% of franchising businesses in the UK. BEST MOMENTS “If you want longevity, a franchise may be the way to go.” “You have to be proactive in your marketing both online and off. Franchise businesses are far more likely to do this successfully.” “In franchising, you don’t own the intellectual property of the business; you’re just a custodian of the brand.” “Everything that happens in the franchise process is a test of my resilience, of my drive, of my resourcefulness, of my desires…” VALUABLE RESOURCES The E Myth: Why Most Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It by Michael E.

Keeping Up With The Jones's; The Danger Zone

“Don’t be a fool. Don’t be one of the Joneses!” – Gavan Wall Stop eyeing that luxury car and instead, think about what you can do with the huge amount of money to start building your legacy. If you’re in the middle class, beware of the danger zone. There is more risk for the middle class in this developing world that we live in right now. Discover today, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, the 9 things that you should worry and be prepared about to you avoid the danger zone. Gavan discusses every point and gives tips on how you could achieve sustainability and financial freedom in this world we live in, so start listening in! KEY TAKEAWAYS 9 Things To Worry About In Today’s World: The incomes of the middle class have flatlined for the last decade or so. The entrance of automation threatens every job of the working class. The premium you get from getting a degree is not as valuable as from before. Generation Y and Z are the first that will have declining prospects as compared to their parents. Being realistic about your finances. Higher family income is now needed to have any standard living. There’s a threat to our essential services (i.e. health services). Think of how you can finance care homes for yourself in the future. Life expectancy has already declined. Climate Change. BEST MOMENTS “The only premium you’ll likely get from your degree is the interest premium on the huge debt you’ll have to pay at the end of several years of your study.” “You have to have two family income these days. Both of you have to be working.” “The opinion of other mean more to us than the success of ourselves. It’s crazy.” “You need to double down when you’re in the middle classes… particularly if you’re in the middle classes because that is the danger where debt and complacency lies.” VALUABLE RESOURCES More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

If You Want Success; How You Fail Matters

How you deal with your failures will predict your outcomes. If you mishandled a situation, most likely, it would become challenging to minimize the repercussions that it will bring to the next mission. So, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan urges you that if you want success, know how to cope with your failures properly. Yes, these experiences will be incredibly painful, but if you ready yourself for them by having the right mindset, being adaptable, and setting up a reliable system in your business, then they will be surely manageable. It will also help if you put into mind that it is not only you who will be affected by the setbacks but also the people around you. KEY TAKEAWAYS You can tell how far an individual can go in his journey to success on how he deals with his losses. Successful people are more resilient and more resourceful. They know how to weather the storm, and they come back stronger. Gavan’s concern as he was haemorrhaging money: What’s the reputational damage to him? What was the deficit to the local area if the business closes? What’s the position concerning the staff? What will be the effect on the landlord and suppliers? Think of the consequences and the people who will be affected if you don’t know how to deal with the failures. It isn’t just you who’s on the playing field. It will be a domino effect; as soon as you’re making progress, they’re benefitting. BEST MOMENTS “For me, when we’re thinking about creating an environment where failure can become a learning process very quickly rather than a full stop, it’s really important how you feel so the failure doesn’t define you in the long term.” “Business failure and loss is an inevitable outcome in any capitalist or market-based economy.” “Ask yourself #WhatWouldGavanDo, and you’ll have the right answer.” VALUABLE RESOURCES More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Everything is Energy

“Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” – Albert Einstein There is too much truth in this statement, and you know it! So, in this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan Wall teaches you how to charge up and get your energy pumping! You need all the energy to get you going and get the tasks done to achieve your goals. There’s an unlimited supply of resources – from online courses, mentorships, books, etc. – if you know where to mine. Just remember that once you get that high energy in your life, it’s more fulfilling and nourishing to transfer them to others by helping them. KEY TAKEAWAYS To keep your most precious relationships, you have to put in enough energy to make it work and last. Always make time – set up a meeting, schedule a family activity, or just stay away from your phone whenever you’re with them. Build up your own energy. Aim for personal development, work on your education, have a passion and vision, build your career, and keep lasting healthy relationships. When you feel this massive energy that is filled with knowledge, skills, and passion, then it’s time to transfer the energy to others. After this, it’s a different kind of energy you get – the feeling of fulfilment and satisfaction. Gavan Wall coined the Speed Mentoring concept because he wanted to give more energy to more people in less time. BEST MOMENTS “The Speed Mentor Podcast and its success lie in its ability to inspire you to believe and achieve.” “The more energy I put in, the more I get back.” “There’s no such thing as new energy. It is simply displacement or transfer of other energy, and energy itself cannot be created nor destroyed.” “But remember that energy is never extinguished according to the Einstein’s of this world. That energy is merely transferred or altered.” “Energy is perpetual, so it matters what type you are transferring.” VALUABLE RESOURCES More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Slay Hump Day and Stay Motivated

It’s Wednesday, the Hump Day! Congratulations for making it over the HUMP towards the weekend! In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan urges you to STILL slay the hump day – just like any other days – and to stay motivated. When you call it a hump day, all you could think of is that when the day is finally over, you’ve surpassed the half of the week. Thoughts get clouded, and we tend to forget how much more tasks could we fit in this hump day. Discover today how you could get yourself driven and avoid slacking in the middle of the week when you tune in. Also, Gavan has a great gift in store for you listeners! For the first 6 who will post on any social media using the hashtags #SpeedMentor and #NoMoreHumpday and tag Gavan in it, they’ll receive a FREE copy of James Clear’s Atomic Habits! Make sure not to miss this opportunity. KEY TAKEAWAYS How to lead your life without hump days? Stop trying to create perfection every time. Just execute each task and move on to the next one. Create daily and weekly goals. Tick them off as you complete them. Get good habits into your life. For example, for Gavan, he drinks a litre of water once he gets up in the morning. Start your day with gratitude and affirmation. Give up alcohol. Make sure that you get satisfaction and you fulfil your purpose in life. Have a healthy diet. Exercise every morning, especially on Wednesday morning. Listen to podcasts or audiobooks. Don’t think about it! BEST MOMENTS “The initial burst is easy enough for most people. It’s the ability to show up every day when the motivation has subsided or even totally disappeared that sets the winners from the losers.” “Motivation isn’t built to last.” “Perfection doesn’t exist.” “There’s so much good stuff in your life that you’re not seeing whenever you think of hump day.” “People often make the mistake thinking that abundance will find them, that they move on, but start and create it where you are at now.” VALUABLE RESOURCES The Speed Mentor Podcast: Gratitude | Apple | Omny Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results by James Clear More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.

Anchors & Wankers; The Sequel

In this episode of The Speed Mentor Podcast, Gavan recalls an encounter he had with high-class society people and how they made remarks against the underprivileged people. For Gavan who just wants every single individual to better themselves and be successful, he knows NO boundaries or hierarchies! If he knows that his help will ultimately improve someone’s life, then he’ll do it without questions. Listen now to know how he dealt with this ludicrousness and how important it is to acknowledge and use your privilege to help other people and the society in general. KEY TAKEAWAYS Gavan tells the story of how he encountered privileged people who belittle the minority and denies them of the opportunities that they could also have. Everything’s always at their advantage. They had access to education, the resources, the psychological and emotional needs to better themselves. Some privileged people think highly of themselves. They refuse to acknowledge the abundance or luck they have experienced and use it instead to help others. These privileged people are not comfortable being at the level of the minority. After being told of this, Gavan is more eager than ever to prioritise the underprivileged when it comes to mentoring. BEST MOMENTS “Are you gonna be the one of the few who harnesses it to your advantage, or are you gonna let the opportunity slip through your fingers?” “Learning never stops. It’s a lifelong ambition to keep learning and growing.” VALUABLE RESOURCES More info on Speed Mentor Retreat (May 18-19, 2019) at com ABOUT THE HOST Welcome to the Speed Mentor Podcast.
