It’s not me. It’s you.
Your value, your frame of mind is unique. You already hold all the answers to your biggest challenges within your system already, whether you’re an individual or a huge multinational corporation. If there are challenges that remain, there’s likely to be a significant benefit to maintaining the status quo -otherwise arguably you’d have solved them a long, long time ago.
Value (just as beauty) lies in the eye of the beholder. Some people want to hire consultants to come in to ‘fix’ the problem, believing that the ‘problem’ is a function of something ‘out there’ in the big wide world: The economy; the present incumbent of the office of President of the US; The policies of the current government; Consumer confidence. [Insert any other circumstance]. Has that ever really solved the actual problem or has it simply addressed a ‘symptom’ for which no small amount of capital was spent, and yet the fundamental challenge remains? Have you resigned yourselves to creating work-arounds to manage the problem to ‘acceptable’ levels?
As you wish. But my curiosity begs me to wonder: Until when?

How will you know it’s time to make the real change? Just how bad does it have to get before you’re prepared to address the fundamental root cause of the problem?
Only you can answer those questions. And even then, you’ll likely be first instructed, tempted or required to exhaust every possible lead, opportunity and previous consultant you’ve ever sought to help you before you seek out an unheard of independent covert and contrarian operation who have no traceable presence, who don’t broadcast or shout the loudest, who never disclose who they’ve worked with. (It’s none of your business, nor is it relevant). Your innate ingenuity is yours. Our low profile is a choice, hiding in plain sight. We’ve modeled ourselves on the mavericks who with quiet confidence and certainty just get on with the job, enabling and adding value effectively and efficiently right under the noses of everyone else fighting over the scraps. We let our results for our past clients speak for themselves. Once again with integrity, we’ve taken as little credit as we can possibly get away with. Preferably, the fewer people who know of our presence and our engagement with you the better. This is your show.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
You’ll have doubts as to whether we’re capable of helping you create the changes you want to make. We’ll likely be the last people you’re keen to engage: We’re an unknown. We consciously want to test and dissuade all but the most ready of enterprises, those who will shape the future of the global economy. We cannot be bought. For the avoidance of doubt — it is not us who sets the criteria to determine who makes it and who doesn’t. It’s you. It always has been.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be. You are a child of [God]. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of [God] that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own Light shine, we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson
We’re going to challenge you and your thinking. We’re going to ask searching and sometimes deeply uncomfortable questions. We’re not your ‘Yes men’. We specifically but transparently keep ourselves hiding in plain sight. We have no debt. We have no shareholders. We are answerable to no-one. How dare we? Who on earth do we think we are?
All your successes to date are the very thing that’s holding you back from your next level of growth.
Nothing we say has any relevance to you: you are going to solve the problem yourselves. You’ve created it. You are your own solution and always have been: Your answers already exist within your sensory system. Our speciality is enabling you to recognise, trust and act on your own intuition — not just once but ongoing.
Solving the real problem hasn’t yet been a priority for you, because arguably you’ll have solved it rather than creating a work-around. Only you’ll know when that might be. Only time will tell if it’s too late. But if you already hold the answers within your system, what’s really stopping you from acting on them, and what’s stopping you from engaging an unknown consciously quiet, unheard of enterprise who’ll help you solve the real challenge?
Judge not a man by the quality of his answers, but on the quality of his questions. Voltaire
You already know the answers. And it’s precisely what’s keeping you from growing.
It’s not me. It’s you.
