After more than 2200kms and 27 hours (at least) in the car last week, I’m very pleased to be home, but with many great memories from our time in Victoria.
We set off packed to the ceiling with Lyndon, his mum, and Ethan surrounded with boxes of books – Lifting the Lid on Quiet Achievers, to deliver to Mildura and Horsham, so the first 800kms was very cosy indeed, and the poor car groaned…
We spent the most fascinating time at the Beasley Family’s Thurla Farms near Mildura, from which we have a few snippets on video and some valuable learning for any kind of business. We celebrated Col Beasley’s excellent contribution to Lifting the Lid on Quiet Achievers that evening at The Office Wine Bar in Mildura, with a Conversations With Entrepreneurs event. Business Owners and community leaders from the Mildura region, (plus Broken Hill) shared insights and ideas from their business journeys and all agreed it was a really inspiring event.
The next day we drove another 4 hours south to Horsham, where I spoke at the Wimmera Business Centre, to 20 local entrepreneurs about “The Inner World of an Entrepreneur” which was really well recieved and the participants did lots of their own thinking and came up with some great ideas for themselves.
I met with several local champions the next day, then it was off to Beechworth, via the gorgeous Bendigo – it was our first visit there and we loved it! What a gorgeous city!
Lyndon’s uncle lives in the middle of the National Park near Beechworth, so a couple of days of R&R was great, and it also gave us the opportunity to see Bethany Simons perform her Gilgandra/Dubbo based play, The Weather And Your Health. I’ve just posted the video on facebook – it’s worth a look :-)
Now it’s 2 weeks at home with local coaching clients, lots of chilling out and preparing for my next trip! You’ll hear from me next when I’m in WA or the USA – it’s a busy, exciting few weeks coming up!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little update – and please do see the video with Col Beasley – there’s encouragement there for all of us. It’s on the right hand side of the page on Lifting.theLid.com under Conversations With Entrepreneurs.
Cheering you on,
