    Dr John de Martini
    Bob Procter
    Stuart Zadel
    Margaret Lomas
    Bill Zheng

    Books I have read
    The Secret

    Always nice to share insights ... I'm off to look for Bob Procter's "Born Rich" DVD.

    My biggest influence in seeing my dad bust his arse for 30-40 years of hard labour and and at 51, still worry about his retirement.

    Also, the thousands/millions of people who rent..motivation enough for me...
