Start and Grow Their Dream Businesses

Kevin Purves, along with his dedicated, hand-picked team, has been guiding small business owners and entrepreneurs to success since 2018.

Through his Training Academy and one-on-one personal coaching and consulting, Kevin has assisted hundreds of entrepreneurs to start, build, and FutureProof their businesses.

The Sky's The Limit

Let Kevin FutureProof your business Dreams

Kevin has been involved in entrepreneurial activities his entire working life, initially as ‘sideline’ ventures, while spending a large chunk of his career in the corporate world instead of following his passion.

In addition to his ambitions of growing his own businesses, he always dreamed of working with business owners and entrepreneurs to help them with their own companies.

Finally, in 2018, after 28 years of diverse and educational experience working for somebody else, but he did it …
He transitioned full-time into the world of helping Entrepreneurs to help themselves.
 

Take charge of your own destiny

Kevin's Background

After qualifying as a mechanical engineer in South Africa in 1990, I started my working career in the construction industry. I spent 5 years in this industry and learned a great deal during this time, but it wasn’t a perfect fit for me.

I then changed focus away from engineering and moving into supply-chain and logistics management in the manufacturing industry.
 
After 23 years in this environment, initially as a Distribution Manager, then Logistics Director, then Chief Operating Officer, and ultimately as Chief Executive, I left the corporate world in 2018 . . .
 
and FutureProof was born.
 
In addition to my engineering qualification and my 28 years of business exposure, I acquired significant coaching and tutoring experience that comes from dealing with the personal problems of over 1,000 employees from unskilled labourers to directors; as well as the introspective knowledge that comes from several failed personal relationships.
 
I am also busy completing my BCom in Industrial & Organisational Psychology.
 
I can think of no better pursuit for me than to share my knowledge and experience in these fields in an effort to help other

The Importance of having Confidence

If I wasn’t confident in my abilities, I wouldn’t be where I am.

Why?
Well, it’s quite simple.

Without confidence, I wouldn’t take my shots in life.
I wouldn’t climb to become CEO of a Billion Rand business
I wouldn’t quit my career and focus on FutureProof.
I wouldn’t meet my wife, etc . . .
In other words, I would miss all the opportunities that led me to become what I am.

And that’s true for everyone.

The 5 Attributes of the Super-Successful

What is it that the super-successful have in common that we can learn from and aspire to?

First of all, when I talk about success, I’m not just talking about money.

Being Super-successful, to me, is having virtually unlimited wealth, freedom and meaning in your life.

I’ve analysed and compared the actions and work-ethics of people like:
Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Larry Page, and Sergey Brin.

The result is a list of specific attributes that all these modern-day multi-millionaires and billionaires have in common.
There are 5 of them.

Where has your curiosity gone?

When you were young, you didn’t need any encouragement to play with other kids or to explore and learn about the world.

You had a natural sense of curiosity – we all did!
But, as time went by, you’ve probably lost it.

And now, you feel more or less stuck in a routine…
Hanging out with the same people…
Going out to the same places…
Eating the same food…

So, what happened?

Have you asked yourself the 5 Whys?

It’s been over 14 months since the pandemic started impacting our lives, and it looks like it’s far from over.

And, if you’ve had access to ANY kind of media in this time, you must have seen or heard endless clips of negative news.

It’s been hard, if not impossible, to stay positive and optimistic the whole time – even for me. And those of you who know me will know that I am a very positive person.

And even if you haven’t watched any news, people around you have, so you couldn’t avoid the negativity.

And here’s the problem…

Are you looking for a Simple Memory Hack?

Do you have difficulty remembering the names of people you’ve just met, or a concept that you’ve just learned?

Many people do; including me. You see, your brain is very good at visualising pictures, remembering places, and building associations. It’s not very good at remembering abstract bits of knowledge though.

So, this week I’d like to share a very quick and effective method for remembering abstract names, concepts, definitions, rules, etc.

Becoming an Effective Problem Solver

How good are you at solving problems?

Will it surprise you to learn that most people aren’t as effective as they believe they are.

They think they’ve seen it all and that nothing can surprise them, and they get used to solve every problem they face in the same way. After all, it’s worked well for them so far.

So, they reject learning new approaches and stick to their old (proven?) ways; not willing to try new approaches.

But one day, the inevitable happens.

Mastering a Growth Mindset

Last week I covered emotional cravings, and how to overcome them. In the article, I touched on mindset management as part of the solution, but I didn’t elaborate.

So, today I’d like to focus on the topic of Mindset management and mindfulness.

If you want to change your world, you need to change your mindset.

And, if you want to become successful at anything, you need focus, awareness, and positive action daily. Mastering your mindset is no different.
