What is your life's purpose?

I was never a confident person. In fact, life taught me that I would forever be the underdog. I suffered bullying, abuse, loss and mental torture. That was my life up to 2017. 

My speech coach hammers the concept of PURPOSE into me. Although she was talking about public speaking, it also applies to life. In my case, life seemed to have no purpose. However, this changed in drastic circumstances. You might say, it was an epiphany.

My life's purpose became clear. I wanted to use my life to inspire others. Hence, the knowledge I had became a diamond. My next step was to present that diamond to the world.

I have some promises to make. You will gain an incredible insight into your own talents, abilities and creativity. Your business life, personal life and self awareness can and will be amplified beyond your wildest dreams. Let's begin your journey NOW!

My personal PROMISES 



Inspiration is not the same as motivation. Motivation has to come from within. However when motivation seems like a one wheeled broken down motorcycle, it can be kickstarted by a truly inspiring story. Inspiration can untap the passion within that provides the fuel to ignite true unwavering motivation.

There is absolutely no doubt Pete's narrative of strength and fortitude will inspire you. His story of overcoming seemingly unbeatable odds is powerful, poignant and potent. It is a journey that takes a brave honest look at subjects often hidden and swept under the carpet.

This is not your typical motivational dialogue, but Pete is not your "play it safe" typical speaker. Find out more by clicking the button below and ignite a fire that will not be extinguished.
