In this week’s episode you’ll discover these three transformational business and life insights from an inspiring and passionate entreprener:

1) Why you should forget New Year’s resolutions and opt for sticky goals instead – and achieve them every time.

2) Why we should set out to live each day with intention and how procrastination keeps us chained to the past.

3) Why the five people you spend the most time with will either propel your forward or hold you back from ever reaching your potential.

So, stay tuned for all of that and so much more on this week’s episode of “The Truth About Business”…

But before we do, I just wanted to give a shout out to “N Cupit” who was kind enough to leave an amazing five star review on iTunes recently. The review said:

A fantastic insight into the careers of some of the most inspirational business leaders in the local area. Interviews are very well conducted and structured, I genuinely look forward to the latest podcast being released each week!

“Thank you!” so much for such a great review, it genuinely does make my day and this is definitely going to be another episode that was worth the wait!

So, in today’s interview I talk business with Kul Mahay.

After a distinguished 32-year career in the UK police and climbing the ranks to be one of the most senior Asian officers in the force, Kul left it all behind to start out on his own and pursue what he believed to be his true calling.

Fast forward four years to today and Kul is now an international professional speaker and leadership coach working in both private and public sector organisations, he’s a mentor, a sought after life coach, a published author and also holds a transformational annual event in Derby called “Ignite Your Inner Potential” which is set to attract an audience of over 450 people this coming January 2020.

In this jam-packed interview, Kul and I cover a LOT of ground with Kul sharing many amazing and massively impactful strategies and concepts to help you grow your business, live a better life and access that untapped potential that we all have hidden within us.

To find out more about Kul, his events and the services he provides, all contact details and links can be found in the “Connect With Kul” section below.

This was another brilliant interview with a truly inspirational entrepreneur that given the fast approach of 2020, could not have been better timed to help you set up for making it your best year yet.

You know, success leaves footprints…
