Group Presenters

I have just had the privilege of attending my third ‘Global Training Conference’ in the USA for my health and wellness business. I saw a number of International guest speakers, both male and female, from Gen Y to Baby Boomer, present to a packed arena of over 18,000 people. The calibre of speakers was outstanding, […]

April 7, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

After going through some pretty tough times emotionally and financially over the past year or so, I had been “putting it out there” so to speak. And pun intended! The topic of mindfulness has been on my radar….my RAS, my Reticular Activating System. Recently I posted a comment on FB and tagged a few people […]



The Story of The Chinese Bamboo Tree

March 8, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

The parable of the Chinese Bamboo Tree teaches us lessons about patience, faith, perseverance, growth and development and importantly… human potential! Like any plant, to flourish the Chinese Bamboo Tree requires nurturing – water, fertile soil, sunshine. In the first year, there are no visible signs of activity or development. In the second year, again, […]

In the effort of CPI (continuous personal improvement not Consumer Price Index, as an Accountant would say!), I am always open to improving myself. Last month I had the privilege of being the MC for a Melbourne Cup function with over 200 guests at our local RSL Club. The learning experience I gained from this […]

Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

October 14, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

They say that to be successful you have to be prepared to get out of your comfort zone. Basically, you gotta “get comfortable being uncomfortable!” Many of my family and friends know that my mission is ‘to positively impact One Million people!’ A huge goal. Yes. And one that I cannot do alone. So I […]

In today’s business, communications and media climate, you also need to know how to be a storyteller.

Think and Grow Rich After Hours

September 19, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

Many of you would be familiar with the concept that writing a book opens up a wonderful opportunity to securing speaking engagements.

Learn From Leaders

August 26, 2016 | Pix Jonasson

Recently I attended a wonderful event on Mindset, Wealth, Business and Leadership presented by the fabulous Dr John Demartini (one of the leaders featured in The Secret).
