Welcome To Our World
A very warm welcome to our personal website and thank you for taking the time to read our story.
We are Chris and Susan Beesley, a normal happily married couple in their sixties with five adult children and four grand children. We live in Biggin Hill in Kent (just outside London) as well as our home in in the French Alps – because skiing is our passion.
We have always had a desire to succeed and achieve our dreams. We are accountants and management consultants by profession (please don’t hold that against us!) and love nothing more than to help and see other people succeed and change their lives for the better. We had that same philosophy in our consultancy business and it gave us great pleasure to help our clients transform their businesses.
We have made some life- changing decisions that have helped us achieve our current lifestyle and we are now spending more of our time at our lovely home in the French Alps – where we can also work – as well as traveling to some of those far away places we only dreamed of visiting before.
Our Story – From Las Vegas
As we said earlier (and in the video), we are accountants and management consultants and although we had an office at home we were nearly always at clients’ offices, working long hours, earning a very good income but having no time to enjoy it or spend with our family and friends.
Things had to change! We were fast running out of Time!
Plus we had just been given a big shake up that made this even more important to do something …… working for clients was realistically no more than a job and we soon came to realise that our income was reliant on them continuing to “employ” us. It all came to a head in 2009 when Susan’s Step-Father was taken seriously ill whilst on holiday in Egypt and she had to fly out to take care of them …
That was the defining moment for us and we realised how vulnerable our business was – we knew we were going to have to do something about our situation looking at the longer term because we realised that our time for money consultancy would just keep requiring more time for us to even stand still, particularly in a recession where there was so much uncertainty and we could lose a client just like that.
Of course we could replace clients but that wasn’t the point.
So here you can start to see the picture emerging and the big reason why. We decided we couldn’t risk someone else controlling our future ever again. We had to be in control! Plus we are of a certain age (50 +) and just wanted to travel more – to go to our home in the French Alps more often and just do what we love – skiing and being in the mountains. It’s what we had been working hard for in the first place. That goal set us on a journey to find a way to replace our management consultancy income, and it finally led us to working full time on the internet in 2010 and giving notice to our remaining clients.
We can’t say that it was all plain sailing but what we can say is that we had such a strong why to change our circumstances. ………
Plus to make matters worse (and our goal even stronger) we had also had our retirement strategy wiped out by the global recession of 2008. We had been advised to invest in property and that was to be our pension provision. The plan was sound but who could have predicted what was to happen around the world.
Luckily some years ago we were introduced to what was to us a completely new way of working and earning money that we could do alongside our existing business. Working smarter not harder! Through our involvement with this home business we received top class mentoring, support, training and self development and came to realise that with the right opportunity, creating a more passive and ever increasing income could be a reality and not just a pipe dream. This was the first step on our journey.
We started a search but soon realised that there is tons of information and thousands of opportunities out there so we had to find a better way to filter it and avoid the scams.
Falling back on our original training we decided that our best course of action was to find a mentor whose experience would help us and from whom we could learn very rapidly. That was our second life changing decision and made us realise that in today’s society, to have a really successful home business you need to embrace the internet and work with a team of like minded people who are willing to help you.
We found ourselves a mentor and that for us was the start of our journey and why we always recommend you find yourself a mentor to work with.
Six years on we now have our own training platform – and support and train online entrepreneurs all over the world working with them to find the right opportunity, system or platform for them (because “one size does not fit all“) and the right learning platform from home study to private mentoring and workshops.
We also run our own training courses and workshops and best of all retreats from our chalet in the French Alps and also in London and Spain.
It is our aim to help every single person who crosses our path wanting to “change their life” by finding out what their pathway is, what are their dreams and aspirations and to set them on a journey to achieve their success.
Our ultimate aim is to achieve the financial freedom that everyone craves for and to help as many other people along that path as we can.
Hobbies & Interests
We are both passionate about skiing and being in the mountains – hence the ski chalet – that really was a passion project
Having a ski chalet was a dream come true for us and we wanted to share the story with you here. We hope that it will give you some inspiration and that despite all of the stuff that can be put in your way, show you that you can achieve your goals if you have the determination. All you have to do it take the first step. Trust us – the renovation was by no means plain sailing and presented many many challenges!
Travel and weekends away feature high on our enjoyment list as well as just chilling out doing nothing much.
Susan is into photography and video and always has her camera at the ready. I, on the other hand like to own and drive nice cars although have yet to own my dream car – an Aston Martin or maybe a Bentley even!
One of our ambitions is to work in the field with our favourite charity Action Aid. We have been participants in their child sponsorship scheme for more than 15 years and our children have grown up always knowing there was another sibling in the family. Kundan Kumar is our latest addition to the family and at 5 1/2 years old is just learning to read and write. We feel very priviliged to be able to give a child education and a start in life that would without our sponsorship be impossible.
There are many reasons why you could be looking for change but certainly you are looking to achieve something you don’t currently have. We have worked with many people from all walks of life
There are those who are complete “newbies” to the internet/home business industry and are not sure where to start.
Then there are entrepreneurs with a few success stories under their belt… but now they have found they want to work smarter and more efficiently. For some this has been a matter of jumping from opportunity to opportunity, each time hoping things will get better… but things didn’t get better!
Then there are some successful networkers, who’ve made (or are making) good money, but are just burned out with the daily grind of prospecting, training, dealing with attrition, etc. and just want to change all that.
Then there are people just like us from a professional background who have only a small or limited pension due to being self employed most of their working lives
Everyone one of these people have come to realise that to have a really successful home business you need to embrace the internet and work with a team of like minded people who are willing to help you.
That is what we are here to do – so come and ‘work’ with us and you too could be enjoying your time and your money the way you want to!
As far as specific business is concerned there is no one magic secret that will give you all the answers. We think that there are basics and fundamentals that will help you build a successful business. The proper mindset is the hidden key that many are looking for however.
We believe so passionately in the power of the mind that we have actually written a book on the subject – the book is called “The Mindset Shift – From Employee to Home Business Entrepreneur” and tracks our journey and is filled with training and exercises to help you along your journey
For those who join us in this business the knowledge and education that is available to you from our team of experts in effective online marketing is second to none. If you can master the art of marketing then it doesn’t really matter what program you have. Programs will come and go but the understanding of how to effectively market will last forever.
The best businesses are built on systems to allow them to be as passive as possible.
No business is 100% passive but by using effective systems it means we only have to work with people who have an interest in the products or opportunity that we are involved in. This means that we don’t have to chase people or hound our friends and family or even “cold call” lists of leads for hours on end. Setting up these systems means that by the time you contact us you already know something about us and understand that we are normal people with a passion to help you and your business grow and succeed.
“If you think you can or you think you can’t you’re probably right.” Henry Ford
