We believe that life is all about personal growth and development, through the pursuit of our passion, discipline and methods, in order become the person we wish to be.
Is there really anything holding us back in life, except our own mindset, beliefs and actions (or lack thereof)? If we are honest, we always have at least two decisions for any given situation and making a decision can have as much of an affect as not making one at all (*That is: Consciously choosing not to make [or to ignore] a decision is actually a decision made). Our decisions, no matter how small compound like interest, leading us down the path of prosperity and happiness or misery and regret. Our decisions are solely our own, no one else’s. Is your decision to live, grow and become the person you wish to be?
Do you really want to find and follow your true passion, learn self-discipline and model the methods for your satisfaction and success – Your true happiness… Whatever that may be to YOU, and only you?
“It is in failure that we should learn, in learning we should grow and in growing we should strive to forge our desired destiny – Life is a journey of the mind – Our decisions hereto, or lack thereof, are solely our own and which will determine our destiny”
To find real purpose through passion. To encourage real growth through self-discipline and leadership. To drive real action through strategic method and creative thinking.
To add true value and encourage continuous growth through the design, development and implementation of unique personal, business and lifestyle solutions.
To seek continuous growth for optimum performance and sustainability.

How we aim to implement our values ~
Passion: We strive to live our brand. We are true to who we are, what we believe and what we do. Our passion is our driving force and provides meaning to our purpose. Our passion allows us to develop and implement our vision. One of our greatest passions is to help people live their passion, with the aim of them finding their true voice.
Discipline: We aim to be disciplined in our every approach. Through our disciplines we strive for incremental and continuous improvement. We take responsibility for our actions and always encourage creating the best possible experience. This discipline encompasses the drive to always be organized and prepared for expected and unexpected events – “Never unprepared” (O’Donoghue moto). We are committed to offering the best value, wherever possible, and empowering those who can offer better value than us.
Method: We aim to assess all situations and scrutinize all possible methods to ensure the best solutions and accuracy for success. We understand that only through the correct disciplines and methods, can we obtain our desired objectives. We strive for accuracy in all endeavours and ask questions when required, so that no business decision is made on assumptions.
Passion, Discipline and Method (PDM) – We believe these are the primary factors for any form of satisfaction and/or success (fulfillment) from a personal or business perspective.
Passion [Our – WHY]: An instinctive or intuitive emotion that inspires purpose. A motive for us to take ownership of our ideas and expand upon them.
Discipline [Our – WHAT]: Self-discipline encourages dedication and perseverance. The pursuit of positive habits and behaviour will drive our passion to achieve our objectives through action.
Method [Our – HOW]: Systematic frameworks, formulas and processes required to successfully implement, maintain or improve performance for sustainable results.
Finance: Within the scope of this philosophy, we have categorized finance as a secondary factor. The reason, we believe the primary principles above are ultimately the driving force to attract any form of participation, investment and financing for personal or business objectives. Although we have classified this as a secondary factor, it is still a pivotal part of any business model, as capital and cash flow are considered the lifeline of most, if not all businesses. However, if we undertake the primary PDM principles correctly and with conviction, then investors and financing solutions should be suitably available.
