"7 Simple Steps to Goal Achieving Success"
including 100 tips to help you achieve your goals and live the life you've always imagined.


We were tempted to call this book "7 Simple Steps to Goal Setting Success". It has such a lovely ring to it. But this is not a book about setting goals. This is a book about achieving goals so that you can create the lifestyle you have often dreamed of. Achieving a goal is very different to setting a goal.

We all have different goals - some are simple, some are more challenging - but the process involved in beginning, working toward and ultimately completing most goals is the same.

This book has been written to help, inspire and focus you so that you can achieve your goals, whatever they may be. You will then be well on your way to enjoying the life you have often imagined.

Reviews for "7 Simple Steps" :


“WOW. I love this book!!! When the inspirational speaker/author is inspired by another speaker/ author’s work, you know it is good stuff! I was honored to be asked to read a pre-publication copy of this book.

What I didn’t realize was how much of a WOW impact it would leave on me.

As a speaker and writer myself, I needed Ian and Vanessa’s wise and encouraging words right now in my own life as I tackle yet more 'out of the box' big new goals. Their book gave me an abundance of needed insights and actionable steps. It also sprinkled into my journey really great reminders of how and why to press on with my own overwhelming goals.

Don’t let the easy breezy quick read fool you. This little book is packed with gems on every single page. Ian and Vanessa, thank you for putting together in one small book all the practical and inspirational words I need to go forward with my own big audacious goals!”

"Paradise Delayed"

What does someone do after putting their whole life up for sale on eBay, then travelling the world for two years with a list of 100 lifetime goals and a challenging timeframe of 100 weeks, and finally selling the rights for the whole amazing story to Walt Disney Pictures?

Why, they go and buy their own private Caribbean island, of course!

The author's continuing quest for amazing adventures and incredible experiences take him to the beautiful tropical archipelago of Bocas del Toro, on the Caribbean coast of Panama. There he somehow ends up purchasing his own private Caribbean island - it sounds like a dream come true, doesn't it?

Maybe not! The trials and tribulations of a gringo trying to make a home on an overgrown island make for a fascinating portrayal of life in this challenging area of the world.

Sinking boats, defective chainsaws, document forgery and aggressive roosters are just a small sample of the hurdles facing a tired traveller who really just wants to lie in a hammock sipping margaritas for a while!

"Paradise Delayed" may make you re-consider the nature of the Caribbean island dream, or may just inspire you to find your own adventure of a lifetime.

"A Life Sold"

What on earth would make someone decide to put their whole life up for sale… on eBay?

When Ian Usher decided that it was time to leave the past behind and move on to the next chapter of his life, that is exactly what he did. The results were surprising, entertaining and challenging.

However, the auction was only the beginning of the adventure. What does someone do when they have sold their life? Well, just about anything they like really!

Armed with a list of 100 lifetime goals, and a self-imposed timeframe of 100 weeks, Ian embarked on what could truly be described as the journey of a lifetime – a global adventure spanning six continents, two years, and almost every emotion.

From the amazing highs of achievement, happiness and love, to the terrible lows of disappointment, loneliness and despair, come along and enjoy the rollercoaster ride of life, as experienced by one traveller who is simply looking for a new start.
