Sunday 30th December – 06th of January 2017
I hope you’ve all been having a great week.
This is something I’m going to be sharing with you each week, on a Sunday.
What I’m up to, on what motivates me, and things I am enjoying,
I hope you enjoy
Here’s your weekly dose of “Weekly 5.”
In case you’ve missed it —
First of all, Happy New Year Guys.
Have you any resolutions for the year?
If you have any, make sure you add this one, to your list, “Aim to be the best you can be and help others on your journey”.
Trust me, by doing this you will succeed in many things and you’ll help change other people’s lives, by sharing a sweet bit of knowledge with them or holding their hand to help level them up.
Right, back to business. What’s going on in the social media world, what’s working and what’s not?
It’s been a bit controversial over at Twitter at the moment. In October there were complaints at Twitter because they suspended Actor Rose McGowan, one of the accusers of disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. McGowan had earlier tweeted “fuck off” to actor Ben Affleck and accused him of lying about his knowledge of Weinstein’s history of sexual misconduct.
Now you ask, why do I mention this?
It’s because certain world leaders have been posting on Twitter Content which is just as bad as what Rose was saying or worse. One of these such World leaders is Trump.
The tweets were coming in fast and hard asking why was Trump getting away with posting content that was abusive and disruptive and why Twitter wasn’t taking them down.
It took a while but Twitter eventually posted why they think that Trumps posts on Twitter should stay up and I agree with them.
They believe it would be an injustice to suspend World Leaders posts as they think that blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate.
It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.

Something I haven’t seen before until recently when I updated my Instagram was the new story feature which lets you feature different types of stories on your profile and put them into different content boxes, it’s called the “Highlight Reel”.
It even lets you use pictures that are not even in your main story.
This is a feature I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with.
I’ve already created a few features, Crypto, Highlights, Music, Backgrounds and Quotes.

What I’m doing at the moment —
This week has been a relaxing week so to say. On the 2nd of January, myself and my wife celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary.
We went and stayed in the Irish City of Kilkenny which was beautiful. We stayed in a hotel which was built upon the river Nore, which towers over it was the Kilkenny castle in all its glory.
While staying in Kilkenny we went to the castle for a day tour. As we were queuing up to pay for tickets and I pulled out a €20 to pay, the lady behind the desk said, “walk on in, it’s free on Wednesday’s”. Whoohoo!
The tour itself was a bit fast but really interesting.
Our guide told us he was working in the castle for the last 32 years, starting in 1985. And god, did he know his stuff. He told us that most of the castle was damaged from being abandoned in the early 1900s and left in disrepair.
Ceilings were caved in, walls and floors damaged, but in the 80s, 90s & 00s it was repaired and restored to its present-day grandeur.
The guide was so good at his job, he even spoke Italian and answered some questions to some Italian tourists.
At night the town itself was lit up in Christmas lights in which it looked really magical and wondrous.
If you’re ever visiting Ireland, make Kilkenny one of your stops along the way.
I’m nearly there with my book “The Path To Freedom” and separate to the book I’ll be mentoring people on its steps.
I’ve never mentored anyone online before that wasn’t in the same room as me, so on Saturday, I posted on my Facebook profile offering only 1 person the opportunity for me to train them on the Path To Freedom.
This will launch them into a financially free future by them becoming a leader and a mentor for thousands of people as long as they put in the work.
If you want the opportunity also, you’ve until 12 am Dublin time tonight to enter.
One of the top or most interesting posts of the week —
This week I started researching and writing all about copywriting.
Why it’s the most important thing that any business or entrepreneur should know.
I’ve learned my copywriting skills from lots of books and websites over time, I’d recommend going to a few people to study all about this most important skill.

- John Carlton
- Mike Dillard
- Ramit Sethi
- Russell Brunson
- Dan Kennedy
These guys are the best of the best. Read, write and understand what they do. This way, one day you could be on this list also.

A tip or advice from an Influencer —
“Don’t play games that you don’t understand, even if you see lots of other people making money from them.” Tony Hsieh
Great advice from Tony.
This quote by him is very current at the moment as people are all jumping into cryptocurrencies and don’t know what the hell they are doing.
Listen, before you start anything or even purchase anything, get a feel for it.
Look at it, read about it, understand what it does.
For example, you don’t just buy a toaster not knowing what it does. If you did, you’d think it made bread, when in fact it makes toast…
Don’t just look at all the good things, focus on the bad also.
Without understanding what your getting, you’ll lose your investment or more importantly your time.
Quote, I’m pondering —
“Mindset is all about leveling up. If you don’t see that, you’re not in the right mindset!” – Daniel Mac Sweeney
