The "TEAM" (Together Everyone Achieves More) live by this Mantra and share ideas, materials, and business growth strategies for each and every client.
On a drizzly, cold and stormy night in 1917, a young reporter was asked to the mansion of America's first billionaire, Andrew Carnegie. They sat in front of a immaculate stone-face fireplace while, the youthful, ambitious reporter, at the time writing on behalf of an unknown, obscure, magazine quizzed Carnegie about what he would perceive life's 'principles of success' to be. The old billionaire was somewhat impressed by the earnest young lad, and suddenly offered him this remarkable proposition:
"Mr. Hill, on your behalf I will use my considerable influence to arrange opportunities for you to personally spend time with 500 of the greatest accomplishers of our time. They will include fellow industrialists, entrepreneurs, inventors, merchants, statesmen, artists, and many others. You will have as much time as you need to interview, learn from and observe them. Your objective will be to validate the belief success is a matter of an ideology, of universal laws, which can be enumerated, learned and then simply duplicated and used as skills to deliver predictable results, just as you might learn the laws and process of making steel.
You will complete this mission by documenting the beliefs and behaviors all these great men and women share in common. No remuneration shall be paid to you by myself. You must support yourself while working on this project.
Your goal will be the publication of a 'success encyclopedia' spelling out the laws. Whatever the financial rewards arise from that are yours. You have just 60 seconds to accept or reject this offer…
He opened his pocket watch, held it up, and waited. Napoleon Hill said yes, with a second to spare. For those that do not know… 20 years later Napoleon Hill completed the encyclopedia 'Laws of Success' which was later condensed to 'Think and Grow Rich' the iconic best selling business book of all time with over 30 million copies sold and still a best seller 70 years later.
Our coaches are some of the luckiest people alive. Similar to Napoleon Hill they have carved a career that allows them the profound pleasure to interview, conference and brainstorm with successful small business owners as well as learn off some of the cleverest marketing minds available today. Subsequently the clients we choose leverage off 'The Laws of Success'. To be 100% frank, if you are not in a position to benefit from our advice, system and guidance, we do not invite you to try them.
Our TEAM consists of recognized business and marketing leaders with high energy and the ability to develop proven marketing roadmaps for small business owners in almost every category of business imaginable. Our system, when implemented correctly, has demonstrated a proven ability to unearth hidden opportunities, overlooked profits and powerful marketing initiatives that operate concurrently in the interest of a profitable result for business owners, professional salespeople and entrepreneurs that apply them.

Peter Lawson, LPW Partner
Peter, whose background is in accounting, ran his own accounting practice for over 22 years. During those years he dealt with a wide variety of clients and industries. However, he was different to most accountants.
He did not place too much emphasis on the number crunching as he had other people to handle that. His emphasis was on working closely with clients to help them grow their business with strategic planning, mentoring, and coaching. He would look at the numbers to measure the progress of the business, as well as working together on some Key Performance Indicators that were non financial.
Peter is also a keen sailor and still sails on Sydney Harbour almost every Saturday. Since he sold his accounting practice, he has continued to consult to small to medium size business owners and work with them to find the hidden profits in their business and ultimately improve their business and personal lifestyle.
