From Brilliant & Broke to Inspired & Abundant!

Use your brilliance to create abundance ...


Want to be inspired? This the book for you ...

Andrew has found 16 inspiring individuals, including the legendary AFL player, president and pioneer Allen Aylett, who have agreed to and shared their stories. Unlike Allen, most are not household names - except in their own house - they are ordinary people with an extraordinary desire to change their circumstances.


The forward is written by Allan Pease, international speaker and author of 18 bestsellers, who says;

'This book really resonated with me. What I love most is that it’s about everyday people. These inspiring people had the courage to make some changes in their lives, tell their stories, be vulnerable and help others who may be in the same situation.'

Do you want to be inspired?

Are you looking for ideas to help create more abundance in your life?

Do you know you have brilliance but are struggling to turn it into something significant?

Have you found yourself broke or broken at any stage of your life?

Would you like to learn from people who have transformed their lives?


This is what some really successful people have said;

‘There is something in this book for everyone — whether you want to improve your health, your relationships, career or finances, or to recover from a major setback. Be inspired by these wonderful people, learn from their experiences, take advantage of their ideas and advice, and watch yourself go from brilliant and broke to inspired and abundant.’

Allan Pease, international speaker & author of 18 best-selling books


‘In this book, Andrew has collated a collection of sixteen real-life short stories that illustrate the importance of simply never giving up in your climb to success. The real stories in this great book are written by real people who have and are living them daily. These stories illustrate that it’s not your past that defines you. What you do next and how you tackle your daily challenges defines who you become and the ultimate chances of reaching your goals. The stories highlight the importance of creating a vision for where you want to be, holding on to that vision and never giving up on your vision. Failure is an important part of the journey to achieving your vision. I call it failing forward.’

"Then, one day I actually followed my intuition. Outwardly, what seemed to be an irrational and illogical decision was just what I needed to put me back on the path to abundance and inspiration."
