Welcome to Over the Horizon Thinking

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.” – Dale Carnegie

My mission is to kick-start you and your business.  Opening your eyes to the acre of diamonds outside your window.

OTHT believes that results come from helping individuals within your business, including you, to obtain focus and freedom to make clearer and more profitable decisions.

Our strategy will relieve the pressure and stress from the business owner and their key people, which enables the entire team to re-align their personal and business goals.

We help businesses that have hit a plateau in growth or are experiencing cashflow difficulties when trying to grow from £0m to £1m, £1m to £10m or £10m to £100m.

OTHT provides a framework through investment and restructuring support with outcome focused mentoring and development for staff as well as incredible strategies for entrepreneurs who want to grow through acquisition and mergers.

We can provide advice and solutions on business development, sales and marketing, joint ventures, partnerships, asset finance and growth finance.

OTHT will also co-create a future exit strategy with the shareholders to maximise valuations so they can achieve retirement and wealth goals.

Our simple philosophy is best described in this elegant quote by

Francoise Rene Auguste Chateaubriand.

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labour and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.

He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.

What is Success…and How do we Measure It?

I know what success means to me. Success is – living the perfect day, each and everyday.

Apple’s investors wouldn’t be very impressed if the New iPad was so great, so perfect, so complete, we consumers didn’t need another Apple product ever again. They wouldn’t sell their updates, apps or their iPad 4.
What is it about us that we are programmed to want more, to better ourselves and our lives?

Begin – Again

If you are in business, you are already a risk taker.

If you decide enough is enough and you want to close your business do it with a plan in mind. There should always be a strategy even when all seems lost. An insolvent business can be seen from many different angles. With the right advice and a fresh start you can cut costs and shift your business model to a profit making venture.

When you are living through a painful experience it’s often hard to enjoy the ride. My advice is don’t worry what people think of you, don’t get too caught up in the opinions of others – just whisper to yourself that you can do it and go for it, again.

Next time around beware of the mistakes from the past, delegate the things you aren’t as good at and be very frugal with your spending.

Financial Freedom – So What! – Then What?

To start a business based on the desire to become financially free is a huge mistake and a prescription for disaster.

Some of the wealthiest people on the planet did not start out saying their goal was financial freedom or retirement – because if they had, they would have stopped long ago.

The wealthiest people on the planet are all still working — not just 40 hours per week, either.

Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Richard Branson and Alan Sugar etc are all still regularly logging 60/70/80 hour weeks. Not one of them is concerned with financial freedom or retirement.
