“Twice a finalist in the Telstra Businesswoman Of The Year Awards

When I started FIFO Families, I was a complete business novice. I had no idea where to start or what to do.

All I wanted was to create a business that would generate enough income to bring my husband home from his fly-in-fly-out job, which saw him work away from his growing family for months at a time.

To achieve that goal, I intuitively knew I had to have someone work alongside me, to mentor me, to support me, and to guide me.

Not just anyone… I wanted someone who had achieved the business-success I wanted for myself. That’s when a friend introduced me to Paul Counsel.

I met Paul over a cup of coffee. And of the problem I was describing to him, he said, “Nicci, if it’s a problem for you, it’s a problem for 10,000 other families as well. Why don’t you develop a business that helps them solve it?”

I remember coming away from that meeting buzzing with possibilities. My intention was clear. Paul helped me every step of the way.

I bootstrapped FIFO Families Pty Ltd, in 2010.

I would take a step, check in with Paul, and come away with the next step. I just kept doing what Paul suggested at the time… after all, he had already achieved the results I wanted many times over.

Within three short years, my business was generating close to 7 figures and I was able to bring my husband home from his FIFO job. That enabled him to fulfill one of his dreams to be a stay at home dad with our youngest daughter.

Not only that, I built a membership base of some 15,000 FIFO families from across the country and at the peak had 5 employees and some 60 volunteers working to support FIFO Families.

I went on to win some significant entrepreneurial business awards, was twice a finalist in the Telstra Businesswoman Of The Year Awards. I became a recognised business leader with 416 media interviews under my belt.

There is no way I could have achieved the results I did without Paul as my mentor.

I always felt he had my back and he would never let me down. As I sailed the somewhat stormy and choppy waters of the business world, Paul was always there keeping me on track and heading in the right and most effective direction. 

“my profits have increased by 25%. I’m over the moon

Stefanie Toerien


I was in my early forties and despite being a successful professional, earning a decent wage and having travelled the world, I felt unfulfilled and undervalued.

I was bored with the sameness of everyday life and the repetitive cycle of eat, sleep and work; a routine so familiar to many.

I wanted more. I just didn’t know what to do next.

A friend suggested working with Paul Counsel… and after meeting him, I knew his Money Mastery Program was the ‘right’ place to start… and it couldn’t have come at a better time because…

Fast forward 12 months…

I’m reaping the benefits … my profits have increased by 25%. I’m over the moon. 

With Paul’s support and encouragement, I continue to apply new information. And here’s what I’ve been able to achieve.

I’ve been able to generate income outside my daily job. From mentoring others to working on a marketing project in collaboration with Paul.

When my clinic hours at work were reduced because of increased business pressures, I had the skills and confidence to negotiate and determine my own destiny. I established myself as a highly sought locum dentist.

Now I get to work all over Australia and have all my expenses paid for. Everyday feels like a continuing paid holiday.

The sameness of everyday life no longer exists.

Investing in improving my writing skills, while receiving tons of feedback and guidance from Paul, allowed me to become a published author in industry magazines Australia wide.

And when the recent Corona crisis hit with the related economic consequences, I felt more prepared than ever. Paul has opened my eyes to a whole new world of financial information that has allowed me to prepare for my financial future way better than I ever thought I could.

Since working with Paul, I’ve discovered my version of ‘more to live’ through thought provoking conversations that has allowed me to gain new insights.

Information seen through a different frame of reference has led to new experiences, achievements and a sense of purpose and security that was unimaginable before my journey started.

“From 5k A Month To 5k An Hour. How A Chance Encounter With A Paul Counsel Book Sparked My Success.”

Nathan Wharerimu

Founder & CEO

Independent Business Network.

When I left my job ten years ago to start my own business I was filled with dreams of financial security, independence and freedom.


But despite having done what I thought was plenty of research on how to run a business; I had completely underestimated how difficult it would be and how much impact it would have financially, physically and emotionally.

Much to my dismay, my first business crashed, the second one too. The third one did a little better for a while but then eventually joined the others in the failed pile.

Strapped for cash and with a young family to look after I reluctantly returned to my old job believing that maybe financial freedom wasn’t something that someone like me can achieve.

But I didn’t give up completely.

One day whilst scouring the internet I stumbled across one of Paul Counsels books on creating wealth. The book was so sharply written and so practical that I followed it up by doing some of his courses and workshops.

The thing that stood out about Paul’s approach was his emphasis on getting to the underlying causes of why people don’t succeed.

Up until then, most of the business learning I had done was focused on the “how to”. But Paul was focused on the “why”.

By using Paul’s three step feedback model I was able to clearly identify a number of key obstacles preventing me from achieving my success goals.

Another of his courses called Money Mastery helped me to develop foundational business tools and skillsets in order to build a solid platform on which I could launch any business I wanted.

And once I was reasonably competent in these skills, Paul’s Lucrative Income System allowed me to spot emerging business opportunities that remained invisible to most people.

Just one year after returning to my old job, I once again handed in my resignation.

I felt I had enough conviction in my newly developed skills that I could achieve the business success that had alluded me so many times before.

Armed with the knowledge gained from working with Paul, I went from working in an office six days a week to working from home two days a week.

When I left my job, I had a mortgage and a maxed-out credit card. Now I’m debt free with a diversified portfolio of assets.

I used to have one source of fixed income.

I now have multiple sources of leveraged income.

And I’m pleased to say that I now make more money in one afternoon than what I previously made in six months.

I realise now that I’ve always had the latent potential to accomplish the success I dreamed of.

But like a seed needs the right conditions to mature.

I needed the catalyst of someone like Paul for my success to become a reality.

My personal wealth journey is not over.

I still have goals to achieve before I can say I’m truly financially free.

But thanks to Paul’s support and resources I know it’s well within my grasp.

I was working up to 6 days a week in a café, barely making ends meet when I met Paul.

I had a Master’s Degree and a hefty student loan, but had been unable to get full-time work in my profession. Casual work was my only option and I was exhausted, depressed, and uncertain of how I could get ahead in life. I wanted to be like other people my age who were already enjoying reliable salaries and disposable income.

I felt like I was falling behind.

I decided my only way out was to stop relying on someone else - and start a business myself. BUT had no idea where to start, what to do, or how to do it. That’s one crucial thing they didn’t teach me at Uni…

It wasn’t until a friend mentioned that they worked with a ‘business mentor’ that I got excited! I’d always yearned for a mentor – someone who could show me the ropes of building a business and financial success!

Meeting Paul was life changing. I got a lot more than I expected! Paul has this uncanny knack of being able to ‘read’ you and lead you to your own answers – there’s no hiding from the truth when he’s sitting next to you!

He helped me uncover my true genius, plan my way into wealth, and explore my way forward into MONETISABLE skills. He provided a safe, consistent, yet challenging environment to help me unhook from my conditioned expectations of what I ‘should be doing’ which were limiting my potential to earn on my own terms…

One of the key things Paul introduced me to was the world of Marketing (the #1 thing to understand if you want to run a successful business) and we soon learned that I had a knack for copywriting. It was from Paul’s observation, encouragement, and feedback that I started writing for other people, and successfully monetising this skill.

Fast forward about 5 or 6 years and I no longer work for someone else. I’m self-employed. Enjoy time flexibility. And get paid to do 2 things I love – writing and being creative!

If I hadn’t met Paul, I know 100% I wouldn’t be where I am now, enjoying the work-from-home lifestyle, with a strategic wealth strategy in place.

He has helped me gain clarity, confidence and control in life – the 3 things I didn’t have when I was at my lowest!

Much gratitude to you Paul, looking forward to many more years ‘exploring forward’ and making more money with you!

"I can sleep well at night knowing my financial future is safe and secure"

Hollie Tee

Prior to meeting Paul in 2014, I was drowning in debt, paying off a mortgage on a single wage and had no idea how to generate extra income except through my 9-5 job.

I was clueless about how the global economic system worked and couldn’t see the possibility of the financial disaster that lay ahead of me if I chose to do nothing.

When I finally meet Paul, one of the first things he did was to take me through the “numbers”. And quite frankly, they scared me.

After four years of payments… and looking at all the costs involved in maintaining my mortgage, including the costs of inflation… I quickly realised that what I thought was my avenue to financial freedom was actually a pathway to the exact opposite.

But my house was my dream… and I found it hard to let go. After almost 2 years of procrastinating and “will I won’t I”, I finally bit the bullet and sold my house to get rid of the huge debt hanging over my head.

And I’m so glad I did because with Paul’s help, I’ve now made back every cent of payments and so much more.

I also focused on learning new skills starting with website design and then moving into learning how to write copy as well as investing money into assets to protect my future.

For a while I kept wondering if I’d made the right decision (to sell my house) and 4 years later I had my answer…

After acting on Paul’s core teachings of reducing debt, reducing risk, increasing skill and increasing cash flow… it’s paid off in ways I couldn’t have imagined as the world is facing the current “Corona Crisis” that’s rapidly impacting the global economy.

Thanks to Paul’s mentoring, patience and amazing support, I can sleep well at night knowing my financial future is safe and secure in times of economic uncertainty.

"From Heartache To Thriving In A Global Crisis"

Greetings, my name’s E.T.

I want to share with you how I went from heartache and feeling uncertain about my financial future to now turning over a multiple 6 figure income, in the middle of a global crisis.

Oh… and as for the broken heart, I’ll tell you more about that in a moment… 

It was 2012 and I thought I was with a person I was going to spend the rest of my life with. Selfemployment was bringing in a high 5 figure income working 20-30 hours per week, and I thought life was brilliant.

Suddenly, the relationship ended, I was heartbroken and started to hate work. As a result, annual turnover dropped by $22,000.00. YES! Twenty-two thousand dollars!

Rock bottom is an understatement!!!

I had to muster the very little energy I had left, or I wouldn’t be able to escape from this hell.

So, I wiped the tears away, dusted myself off and decided to reach out to a man I’d heard being called a mentor of mentors.

His name’s Paul Counsel.

The phone rang within the hour of me sending an email and before I knew it Paul and I were at the local cafe chatting over a cuppa.

I knew within 10 minutes that I had to engage him. We chatted for at least another hour and a half. Just in that short space he was able to gently guide me through the process of the breakup.

Before I knew it, my income increased by over 70% in under 8 months. 

Fast forward a few years and I’m now turning over multiple 6 figures with two full time and 2 casual employees, all in the middle of a global crisis. I’m loving the growth of the business and lessons that come with them.

On top of this, Paul has shared his knowledge and guided me towards creating other streams of income, which are well on their way.

Please don’t be fooled that it was a walk in the park. I’ve experienced my fair share of dramas along the way.

But this is why having Paul as a mentor is such a blessing, as he’s already travelled the road ahead and can steer you away from imminent danger.

The relationship we’ve established is so, so encouraging and supportive for success.

Thankyou Paul for your knowledge, patience and mentoring.

P.S. They say a picture paints a thousand words…
