0:00        Show Intro

0:27        Chris and Nick discuss the purpose of the new “Coaching Conversations Podcast”.  Which is btw – an upbeat series where Nick and Chris help answer question about overcoming real-life challenges in your business.  They provide strategies and usable tools to help you take more action and get things done in your business.  Short, Sharp and Punchy – with great value!

2:15        If you have questions you’d like answered… please contact us at:

2:51        What should you be focussing on any business and niche… to stabilise your business for the future?

3:17        There’s a lack of attention to detail on “where’s the money going”.  There’s a need to KNOW these important things.  Don’t rely just on others knowing these for you.

3:59        Most people think to get a business through COVID they need to stop spending money, cut back on marketing, shut everything down, just to eat bread and water, fire everybody and don’t grow your people.  The exact opposite is true?  Why?

4:37        First thing to look at…  What your income is and what your expenses are.  Tone up the ship where you can.  To stabilise, making it leaner may be advantageous.  You need to get ready to move forward when things normalise… In whatever shape that is.

5:27        Running leaner doesn’t mean firing people, getting rid of staff, hibernating.  Means looking at more efficient ways of doing things.  Find cheaper suppliers, ordering less, rostering better… Wiser stock controls.

6:00        Two things to stabilise a business.  Become Financially efficient, and Operationally efficient.  Have you had too many people doing little bits and piece… or been doing everything yourself.  Maybe you need to hire someone… make room for you, so you can grow the business.

8:27        It all comes down to how you think about or / perceive things….  There have been thousands of people saved because of Covid-19 (New York Car accidents are down).

9:41        What does PIVOT mean in a business?   What are practical steps to doing this?  Change your model to incorporate more technology so you can cut down on prices.  Use cloud services and tidy things up!  Most importantly… UP THE SERVICE!  Over-deliver for clients.  Show value, show that your customer is worth more than gold.  Doing this is vital to your success.

14:31     Embrace Technology… use it to your advantage.  We have to.  If we are not, our competitors are.

15:02     What lies ahead in next few months in business?   With millions on some form of welfare today, things are uncertain.  Hospitality services will be in demand as people are keen to get out and about.   There’ll be a shift in the way people transact, more online focus… so business opportunities will continue to arise if you can be online and found. 

17:16     There’s a very real opportunity to lead your industry.  It’s exciting.  Start to advertise, go back to your database and contact people you we’re selling to before.   Innovate and reinvent your model.

18:31     Look at your business from the outside.  Think – “how is my industry going to be affected in the next 6 months?” 

How can you zig or zag to make the most of this opportunity?  Organically

19:01     Show wrap up…. Contact us at questions or chat about …



Things have changed in business.  If you’re not prepared to change also, there’s a real chance you will suffer.  By focussing your efforts on super serving your existing clients, re-engaging former clients and looking for ways to run lean… will help greatly.  Make great use of cloud services to minimize expenses.  Don’t become the bottleneck in your business.  Stabilise, Up the Service, be proactive in your marketing and activities so that you’re in a great place to lead the industry when things get back to some form or normality – however that will look.

At the age of 43 after discovering that his genius father, who was last seen 30 years earlier, died homeless on the streets of NYC, Jeff resolved to spend the rest of his life showing others where they were on their path, what was coming next and the smoothest path forward to reach their bigger future & best legacy.

Today Dr Jeff Spencer is a Champion Maker with clients from Tiger Woods to U2, Bulletproof to Nike. 

He teaches clients his road map experience – how to achieve your goals.

  • Dr Jeff Spencer talks about his childhood – the Olympics, becoming a glass blower and world renowned chiropractor until today, where he is a ‘champion maker’ with high powered clients, helping them achieve their goals and stay on track.

they need to do to get back on the right path.

27:50 When your confidence increases your anxiety drops.

28:15 Life can only be as good as the skills you have.

29:45 The reason Jeff’s father died homeless – he was missing two things:

  • Road Map that showed him how to take his ambition to achievement.

Goal setting is not achievement.

31:15 Nick asks Jeff about his ‘champions blueprint’.   Most people follow the ‘gap model’.

But the gap is really a system – preparation then performance.

00:44 Nick asks Paul “What is being human to you”

03:40 Paul talks about the Steiner Cross and the symbolism of it.

05:40 Paul talks about chakras and what they mean.

09:10 Human beings are capable of dealing with non-sensory information – complicated integration of physical and energy systems that has the capacity to travel out of their body.

11:31 Human being is capable of recognising that it is a product of the universe and has the power to create and destroy nature.

11:10 The more we use our minds to free ourselves, the more inspired we feel to share with everyone.

13:31 When a person realises they are their neighbours, plants chemicals – they have a sense of reverence for life – you are part of it, you can celebrate it.

14:40 Nick asks Paul – how can we understand the soul and who we are.

15:10 Only 4% of matter is what we pick up in the universe – the rest is pure energy. Unconditional love is consciousness itself.

18:00 The only number that is free of conditions is ZERO.

20:25 The soul is the consciousness within an individual.

22:15 Nick asks Paul – how do you know you’re in alignment with who you are meant to be and what you’re meant to do in life.

23:15 The heart is the organ that senses love – the heart is a compass so when you’re moving towards love you feel more alive.

25:25 If you follow your bliss, you’ll always get bliss.  If you follow the money, you’ll get money – but not necessarily health/happiness.

26:25 Can you look back on your life – all the jobs you had (that you didn’t enjoy) ended up to be a collection of skills that helped you achieve what you’re doing now.

28:40 A midlife crisis – when you get to the point that you’re on the top of the ladder, but you’re on the wall.

29:55 The definition of consciousness – a psychic substance that is intangible that is produced in living awareness of opposites.  

32:40 If you didn’t have challenges, how would that influence your willingness to grow spiritually – would you be inspired to go deeper into yourself.

33:55 Nick asks Paul – is the end ever there?

34:55 Relationships bring us to people that gives us different perspective on life.

36:10 When we’re challenged by something that stresses us – those stresses ultimately inspire us to look for answers that grows our level of intelligence and our capacity to understand others and love.

38:56 Anything that helps you outside your business helps you inside your business.

39:30 Ask yourself what would nourish me right now?  A lot of times it’s not that we’re bored at work, we just don’t have anything besides work to enjoy.

40:30 Nick asks Paul what he thinks happens when we die.

42:40 The vibrational consciousness – the lucid dream state.

46:32 We keep coming back until we reach a state – where we become one with the divine ocean.

46:58 Desire to live is so powerful that we keep wanting to come back.    

Desiring objects keep you on the wheel of life and death.

21:40 Paul talks about the medical system and how it is set up.

22:45 Nick asks Paul “Why do people over complicate things?”.

23:22 Almost everything can be attributed to the 4 Doctors –

Dr Happiness, Dr Diet, Dr Quiet, Dr Movement.

26:30 Religious programming – that stop us from living and loving fully

27:50 One of great challenges is our systems are set up to worship authority figures

and forsaking our own happiness in the process.

29:30 We live in a world of ideas but we don’t know where our food comes from.

In Part Two:  Paul will delve into the spiritual world sharing his insights into who we and and what we’re doing on this planet.
