Jobs for over 60's!

The most terrible problem of 2022 is ageism where systems deigned for when people died at 40 can't cope with people living to 80 with the last 20 years being paid for by the State.

McCartney going strong was born in 1943!

The area that could easily be fixed on the diversity scale is that which currently is the biggest... age! Did you know most systems were designed when the most common death occurred at age 40! Did you notice how old people were that succumbed to covid - 80+ was the most common age.

what happens to people who are "seniors"? They are discarded because that is "the way". This has lead to a new movement called the "Modern elder" group. People old enough to contribute from a place of experience but well enough to pull their weight.

I was reminded of this watching a series of Paul McCartney videos which talked about his age as 76plus... and he is still making hit records and performing [pre-covid] to stadium sized crowds of 50k+

He was asked at 18 what he would bw doing at "the Old age of 20" And he remarked "probably not being a player in a rock and roll band." Yet here he is in 2021, 78 Years old... still being a "singer in a rock and roll band."

Go figure!

!0 Income ideas for 2022

 Do you want to make more $$$ for 2022 than you did in 2021?

Here is my list:

    1.    Crete manuals to sell by emails - TikTok for Business
    2.    Crank up coaching programs
    3.    Do a hashtags package
    4.    Cruise Talks [they should be back in 2022]
    5.    Speaking at Live conferences
    6.     Presenting seminars
    7.    Affiliate Netwrok
    8..    Subscription Newsletters [Substack]
    9.    Create content for various platforms
    10.  Write books and self publish on Amazon  

Attention: Friday Christmas Eve 2021!

Who would have thought that it would last this long? Covid-19 goes on!
Attention is the Game!

Back when I had influence, I took maybe 2 hours a day to comment on all my comments on Twitter - I then had 5000 follwers... Now with 100,000 followers, I am lucky to get 5 comments a week... time to responded: maybe 10 minutes a week.

What to take from this.

Go where the attention is and post appropiate content for that platform.. currently that is TikTok for all demographics seeking attention - or you could get upset and chase rainbows [ as I have done ], but you should learn from Myspace that was once worth a $1 billlion  [ that's what Murdoch paid for it] and is now irrelivant

[ unless you are an idependent music label where it is the place to be ].

Overparenting is leading to many wimps

 I remember when I was frustrated at home my mother said, as she pointed " My Roof - my rules, don't like it there is the door!" and I left!

We had a time when there was a thing called empty nest syndrone but it is replaced with boomerange kids.

Nobody wins anymore.. everyone participates!

Well research show young people don't want to grow up because they will have to leave their mothers... it is doing harm.

I asked my grand nephew, "Do you have girls friends" but his mother said sternly " We don't say that Uncle Wayne!"

The is an explosion of mental health issues that can be traced back to over parentlng - Yes it is harmfl!!

Mate, will you rub my legs?

Thw first time I was asked by a "street person" for a specific amount of money for a specific reson - for example " Can you let mw hve $4.50 for the train fare to Gosnells" - I was tempted to give that peroson $4.50 but I have been "cashlass" for sometime so my answer was "if you have a cardmachine I will gladly give you the $4.50" I was approached at least a dozen times with the same script but I didn't feel so gulted that I couldn't give.

This morning the script was different "Hey mate, can you rub my legs?" When I asked him to sit on a nearby bench he refused... but said " before you go, can you spare a few dollars?" Different script [ I would say a much better one!) but for the same reason... modern day begging. I would have rub his legs and probably given him my safety first cash but he didn't have that part of the scrpt down pat.

What happens when you life is longer than you planned!

 I often think of my uncle who retired early [62] but lived into his 90's. He was the first person who lived longer than was expected. He told me once: " You can only play golf for so many years " he stopped playing golf when he turned 90!

My situation is that my goals have been achieved but not planning for the future sucks! In another converstaion with a mates dad, I insensitively said... my uncle once said "One of the problems of getting old is that all your friends die"

This is was brought home at his funeral service which was old people but not many! [probably he outlived all of them!]

Times are now different! I was conditioned to retire at 65 [ Planned what should happen - I even picked out jobs but times have changed so much that two of the three have disappeared [Pest control and encyclopedia's have disappeared and selling cars is moving online - Honda, Hyundai and Audi!] 

So the challenge is "what to do!" The expectation of the length of life is at least 90 so there are 20 to 30 years to fill. The last few months have been a painful readjustment to those extra hours and weeks and months and years.... what should I do?

Anyway I have startes to look at thw future through different eyes.... who has made 100 ! with all their marbles!

Does the value of the $$ affect you?

 Most of the things I subscribe to have their price expressed in US dollars... I read with dread that a journalist is cheering that the Australian Dollar could end up at 65c to the dollar That is to I heard Dan sulivan of Strategic Coach say that most of his income is earned in the US and spent in Canada where he has a 26% advantage.... He lives in Toronto but his compnay is headquartered in Chicago..

It is amzing to me that how you frame something changes the outcome... what I need to do is earn more of my income in the US.

I was impacted by the first Internet Laws in Australia - The spam Act so when I heard that the Australian Government is Thinking of crimping the styale of BNPL platforms my first thought were "You should keep you noses out of there" [Zip Afterpay etc.] I was reminded of the words of australian Transort pioneer, Reg Ansett who said " You don't have to like the law, you just have to know it!" and again Dan Sullivan saying... "The biggest prospects are in areas where legistaion hasn't caught up yet!"

I was listening to Mike Rowes Podcast and it was talking about the Story behind the Trademeking of the Redneck Riveria by John Rich - Don't hear "no" as an answer. It seems it is how you approach stuff affects the outcome!

Let's accept it won't "snap back!"

 Over the last few days, I have slowly accepted that we are in a similar time to when horses were replce by cars... the major difference is that it is happening quicker. cars replced horses - it took 100 years to reach a time where elecric cars will replace fossil fuel and AI will replace drivers? The last 18 months has seen changes that are happenin at warped speed.. like remote working etc... people preferring to shop online... the death of the CBD and shopping malls and they are being relced by zom and other video enbled computer apps.

Change is NOT Negotiable

Are you ready for the changes?? I wasn't but think I will have to gie in gracefully.

Maybe I was wrong?

The Covid-19 crisis continues to go on... starting in March 2020 it is now December 2021 and if we go "back to normal" it won't be what it was like. I used to do sessions in public around australia and the world which meant I was in planes 2 weeks out of four.... the new way is by zoom meetigs, and when we can there will bw different "in person" meetings... much like radio film and TV co-eisit but will never be what they were - it will be just different.

Anyway, after holding out this long it is time to say OK thngs have changed... and get on with the new normal.

The sun at Last!

 It has been a strange start to summer in Australia... Last year on the east coast we hade bushfires - this  year we have floods. Go figure.

Usually 30+ weather in Perth Starts in October but this was the coolest October ever! It is just geting to 30+ temperatures.

They are talking cricket - if the rain stops - that sounds like the UK?

Anyway, these are strange times!

MMM is it too late?

The last two years waiting for the old way to come back has been exhausting - then I realised it isn't going to... that has been a libersting thought.

In GaryVanyerrchuck's book "12 and a half" it makes the point to that evn if you are 65 or older [ I am 69] "to be curious."

He says: " If you want to get back on the field,, sixty-five to ninty can be like playtime. What if you shared your knowedge from over sixty years of life?" What if you could enhance your legacy by communicating to the world on social media, taking advantage of an opportunity you didn't have in the prime of your career?" That puts the future unto sharp focus... just like the horse and buggy, the old way isn't coming back - get over it!

What Got Us Here Won't Get Us There:!

 I was aked to do something and made a plan and started to put into action - but I didn't tell anyone! anyway, it was assumed that I wasn't oing anything so someone else is doing the situtaion.

who's at fault?? I would have said " Not me" but thinking about it more, it is totally my fault as I din't tell anyone what I was doing. I should have shared the plan so they knew I was getting there.

Do you do the same thing too?

Do you feel Successful?

 As I have mentioned previoulsy I am reading Gary Vayerchucks new book "Twelve and a half" and he asks where you slot in the nearly 8 billion people.

Apparently 820 people where undernourished in 2018 [according to the WHO],40.s million people where modern day salves when they measured that in 2016... 3billion people don't have the internet and 4.5 billion people don't have a fully functioning toilet!

And you complain? About what?

Did you know, books regularly come out of copwright if they are 70 years old or more... all Disney stories were "stolen" from out of copyright books. Great books to read [ out of copyright too ] are those by Claude Hopkins.

60+ you should set goals because you have a long time to go!

Did you notice that really old people succumbed to Covid - people aged 80, 90, and even 100+ My grandmother died at 63 of old age, my mother didn't make it that far, my fther was 75+ and my aunty was nearly 90. People are living longer- in 1880 people in the US had a life expectancy of 39, that changed in 1930 to 58 and is currently 79 with more people living passed 100 than ever before.


The goal setting books that impacted most peoples lives and now are freely available - like Think and grow Rich were written when people lived to old age of 60... now if you are 60 the chances are you will make 100! My simple question: what is your 10 year goal? I shortened mine to 90 days because people coule believe that but after 2 years of Covid, I have reset my goals to at least 2032 because I will live that long and more.

I want to challenge you to start to think about the most productive years of your life!

Are you keeping your commitment to yourself?

I have been listening to the views of Andy Frisella of The MFCEO Project and the REALAF Podcasts. I remember when my son, Matthew, said I should listen [That is word of mouth working] he also said you probably won't like the language [There are lots of the MF word} and Andy sounds perpetually angry. Well I listen with the filter on [I don't hear the MF words] and he sounds less angry the more you agree with him.

I am doing his Program 75 Hard which is about building self discipline and I remember him saying that to complete the 75 Hard, each day finished at midnight.

One of the things I have set myself is to do 20,000 steps a day instead of going to a gym. At 9.30pm last night, I was at 16700 steps and I didn't want to start over so, at 9.30pm, I went walking to get passed the 20,000 steps goal that I set myself - it felt good to do it but I was hoping nobody stopped me and asked "what are you doing?" so, I have know gone 46 days without missing a step in the process.

Podcast Link "The RealAF"

Link to 75 Hard

Listening to Andy is like watching the news on the ABC and then on Fox and wondering what is the truth. I commend you have a listen and test your beliefs. [ Yes it is challenging ]

My challenge is to get you to start thinking for yourself.

Sidenote: I would like to thank Marlene R, who took me to task for poor grammer in the last newsletter - the wrong word used - I used sort rather than sought in the piece about WWE.

If you want to follow my ramblings, you can at the Boy from Margaret River Blog where you can learn, unlearn and relearn.

Do what you think is right!

Last week,I had an issue with the bank... you know "we love you as a customeer but wait for 45 minutes on the phone - I might have waited longer but I gave up!

When I got to my coffee and paper shop [7/11 Morley] my credit card was back where I was talking to the bank [I didn't have it!] and the phone app doesn't work - who knows why, so coffee in hand the lady who servers me said she would put the money in. Disaster averted.

Today I was half way there but I didn't have money [you know the real stuff] to give here back the "loan". I though about putting it off another day but finally went to a ATM and withdrew cash - much more than I owed the lady but banks only deal in $20 or $50 notes...

when I paid I used the note and the lady said she didn't remember the amount... I suggest something and she agreed - I felt much better! 

The moral: Do what you think is right!

Be yourself!

 I have a couple of examples where I should have but didn't:

I did the tax for someone very close and a difficult question came up. I asked advice from an accountant friend " Who said - Let sleeping dogs lie." when it cam time to take that advice I squashed the little voice and let the Person lodge a return."

Then all hell broke out... A Bill for nearly $50k came instead of a refund for $2k... whose fault do you think it was?? Well I am still wearing the heat from that - and until yesterday was saying it was someone elses fault but it really was mine.

Self Image?

Sometime ago someone close said " you are just an Old, fat, angry" man.

Now I am a little less heavy after losing 20kilos, still od but I am working on the angry bit.

The problem with woreking on angry is that it requires lots of personal intervenions... Like going off grid at times. in the last 48 hours I have had to rethink how I react to a situation because my anger got the better of me. But I am learning to be less angry because it is hard to come back from saying stuff that you can't retract!

Change happens - covid -19 is an example!

There’s no point in trying to escape change.

Change is difficult and uncomfortable, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid it. It can be forced upon us by unexpected circumstances: an accident, a job loss, an illness or malfunction in a machine we rely on.

If your partner suddenly breaks a leg and you need to abandon your usual activities to take care of them, show them what an adaptable, tolerant and responsible person you are — and change accordingly.

The odd thing is, the older we get, the more we grumble about change, yet so many of us have already faced the greatest change of all: going from independence to dependence, with little or no preparation at all. I suppose it’s because it’s something we don’t want to think about too much, as we’re secretly confident we’ll cope when we have to.

Can anybody do NFT's

Can you make an NFT? Well, one would assume so given that when Trevor Andrew as Gucci Ghost (pictured below), and he managed to sell it for $3,600. 

So, technically, anyone can create a piece of art, turn it into an NFT on the blockchain (a process called 'minting') and put it up for sale on a marketplace of choice.

You can even attach a commission to the file, by way of a "smart Contract, which will pay you every time someone buys the piece through a resale.

Much like when buying NFTs, you need to have a wallet set up, and it needs to be stuffed full of cryptocurrency. It's this requirement for money upfront that causes the complications.

The hidden fees can be prohibitively astronomical, with sites charging a 'gas' fee for every sale (the price for the energy it takes to complete the transaction), alongside a fee for selling and buying.

You also need to take into account conversion fees and fluctuations in price depending on the time of day. All this means that the fees can often add up to a lot more than the price you get for selling the NFT.  

Whether or not NFTs are here to stay, for the moment they are making some people money and they're creating new possibilities for digital art. I would, however, advise caution and careful consideration of which platforms to use. 

If you want to get creating, make sure you've got one of the newest and most powerful computers or tablets!

2 Rules to dominate a Social Media Platfrom!

According to Gary V there are only two ways to dominate a sical media platform - be first [ or amongst the first of your niche ] or the best [ for established networks.

So at the moment - being first or dirst in your niche applies to TikTok, Pinterest or Linkedin... I will leave the rest for someone else.

New is Best!

I remember being one of the first people to have a twitter account.... engagement was high and results were great... Twitter works differently now!

Gary V says you should be always looking for the new thing... in 2019 he was talkng about instagram and Tictok... but he said you have to be prepared when something stops working... like Periscope and clubhouse...

The other thing Gary V says you shoud post up to 25 times a day and have somethin diferent for each platform.

The thing I got was that whilst twitter works differently to how it used to [when I had about 10,000 followers I got up to 400 interactions a day - now with 100k followers I am lucky to get 10 interacrions a week.! that doesn't mean it is not working - it is working differently!]

So, I will try to find the newest thing and experiment on it.

Is cricket Stuffed?

 My earluest memories are of listening in the middle of the night to the radio afor australi verus England and the Ashes- The voice was alan mcGilvray and later I heard it was made up. I ltsened with my faher so they are fond memories.

I didn't think the cricketers were superhuman but just ordinary people playing at the highest levels... did they cheat? Probably? But you din't know for sure and certaim.

Fast forward to Cape Town and the test against South Africa - the players were now multimillionaires but still men playing a game.... [March 2018] but there for everyone to see Brancoft uses sandpaper on the ball [cheating] but e is caught - it is one thing to cheat it is a whole different thin to get caught... Bancroft, Warner [ apparently the ring leader] and Smith are sacked and the new captain is an unknown [to me anyway] called Tim Paine..

Fast forward to November 2021: It is announced that paine is resigning as Captain because he was caught sexting while married with a female colleague in 2017 - so it has been covered up for 4 years!!

Cricket's New Low is cheating, being caught and cvering it up!! What were they thinking. I was just starting to watch cricket after being shocked at the Cape Town scandal, but this takes the cake - Mr Clean, not only is a chaet, he got caught and he takes a picture of his ***** and they try and cover it up??? Maybe I give cricket up or just realise this is what the world id - that all those years ago, chaeying was happening and was being vovered up because "what you don't know, doesn't hurt you!"

I was surprised to learn that Darwin was bombed more times than Peral Harbpur but "they" kept it quiet... did that hurt me or not? Maybe I would have a differet reaction to the Darwin Port being leased to the chinese Governmant.... Maybe?

Is it really about web 3.0?

I remeber thinking the internet would take forever to gain traction - I gave a talk on the web early on and about 50% through the talk I was met by blank stares... nobody new what I was talking about - it was 1990 and we were talking about modems, smart phones being Nokias, and fax marketing etc.... the same expressions meet me when I talk about Web 3.0 and the platform it is built on - Blockchain and NFT's - only this time the change will be swift... you won't be able to deny the changes - they will come anyway. 

For example, I thought petrol cars would last forever but who would have predicted General Motors actually stopping to market cars where they had sterring wheels on the English side of the car [ Riht hand drive] - that's in Australia, New zealand, South Africa and India. Now many comanies, including GM, are only going to make electric cars from 2030 - gee that is soon [just around the corner].

The change from Horses to Cars took a while but the change from fossil fueled cars to electric vehicles will be much quicker... there might even be a new push towards Australian manufactured cars - Heck, the pollies are already talking about that.

World trade will be done differently soon... supply chains have broken down - I heard they were established as a offset to the cold war... America shipped its jobs to China etc... those jobswill come back as two things take hold - higher wages and broken supply chains. The jobs will be different as Robots driven by ai will replace laburers producing goods but service jobs will explode so our education system will need to change for those jobs.

Things to know about NFTs but you were afraid to ask!

 NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are digital-only collector items backed by blockchain technology. Here’s what you need to know about these sought-after crypto collectibles.


What are NFTs? – Time Magazine defines them as “computer files combined with proof of ownership and authenticity.” They can be anything digital: artwork, memes, sports cards, music, etc. For example, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey sold the first tweet as an NFT for $2.9 million . Unlike traditional money or bitcoin which are essentially interchangeable, NFTs are non-fungible, meaning each token has a unique worth and cannot be traded for another. 


Digitizing and monetizing  Artists have been creating easily accessible art online for years, often times with nothing to show for it­—especially in a monetary sense. NFTs allow digital artists the ability to truly own and sell their creations while benefiting financially.

ThreeWho is buying NFTs? – NFTs aren’t just for high-end collectors. Some tech-savvy buyers are purchasing them as a way to support their favorite artists, athletes, or celebrities. Others are just hopping on a booming trend in the hope that the value will increase.


The pandemic, the Internet, and NFTs – NFTs aren’t a new concept and have been around for years. Their popularity has been boosted by a combination of Bitcoin’s success and people spending more time online due to COVID-19.


How big is this market? – Bigger than you may think. The NFT market grew by 299% in 20201 with sales in the first quarter of 2021 soaring to more than $2 billion2—and it’s shown no signs of slowing. Auction houses are already getting in on the NFT craze and NFT-related stocks have been on the rise.


Is this the future of digital-asset investing? – Some investors see NFTs as a modern approach to investing in art, but how this may pan out remains to be seen. The growing field of digital assets is volatile, but it’s a trend both investors and financial professionals should keep an eye on.


Risky business – Like all investments, NFTs have risks. They’re unregulated and the mania surrounding them may lead to volatility: buyers may purchase an expensive NFT only to discover later that it’s not worth much. NFTs aren’t readily exchangeable for cash, so liquidity is an issue.


Environmentally unfriendly – Digital assets might be paperless, but, unfortunately, they’re far from green. The computers, storage, and security required by NFTs (and cryptocurrency in general) use a lot of energy.


Surprise! They’re not tax-free – Both buying and selling NFTs is a taxable event. Because NFTs are considered collectibles, they’re taxed at the maximum capital-gains rate of 28%. Investors can also expect to be taxed when buying and selling NFTs with cryptocurrency, selling an NFT for another NFT, and when converting cryptocurrency back into US dollars.


Bubble trouble? – With so many people trying to “get in early” and pushing prices to exorbitant highs, some worry that this market isn’t sustainable.
