Anne Pettifor helped wipe out $100 billions of debt for 35 of the poorest countries in Africa with the programme she helped found, Jubilee 2000. She was also director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics, PRIME and fellow at New Economics Foundation. She was one of the few people to publicly predict the 2007 financial crisis in 2003. When she speaks, we should listen.
Part of being a Sovereign Entrepreneur is getting wise to what’s really happening in the world of finance, not what the mainstream media is telling us what’s happening (they lie, would you believe?).
It is a mathematical certainty that the financial crash coming is going to be bigger than anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s our future at stake here. We hand over the reigns of control of our hard-earned cash to companies that are controlled by a very few people who’ve been conning us for centuries. Read The Creature from Jeckyll Island for some historical context.
Because we’re born into this system, we can’t see how fundamentally flawed it is. It is, as Anne says in the video, a blind spot for most people.
This is mainly due to ignorance. Our ignorance.
The key to surviving, and thriving through all this is education. You taking the decision to really educating yourself on how the system really works.
This excellent, and brief, interview with Anne from Renegade Inc’s Ross Ashcroft, is essential viewing if you’re on the journey to financial enlightenment (which I hope you are):
You may already have seen Renegade Inc.’s Four Horsemen documentary film. If not, check it out here.
You can follow Renegade Inc on Twitter here and I urge you to take a look at their Kickstarter campaign here because unless we, the people, start supporting people like this who want to get real information out into the world to educate the rest of us, the massive con-trick that is the current global economy will continue to tank and spank all of us.
Considering the banking system has already claimed the lives of 100s of millions of people by funding all sides on all of the wars in our recent history and taken most of our basic human rights away, I think we should stand up and start being counted.
We are many, they are few – and that’s what they are afraid of.

For someone who was terrified of water and could not swim until I was 11, I am over the moon to report that I can now stand up on a surfboard. In the water. Whilst it is moving.
I remember being in intensive care in 2001 with a suspected cardiac “event” and reaching 18 stone thinking I was past it, and probably not long for this Earth. Well, I’m not. Even better is that my 10, 8 and 7 year olds are now also surfers, which is a gift I am so pleased to be able to give them.
Massive thanks to our brilliant teacher Karim Rhouli who has also shown us some of the most incredibly beautiful parts of the coast of Morocco these past three days. Check Karim’s Morocco Surfing website if you want an incredible adventure for yourself.
While I was in the water I kept saying to myself “Why am I so good at surfing?”. It worked. Within minutes, I was standing up after having the limiting belief that it was not something I could ever do.

Wouldn’t it be very, very useful indeed if you could put a call to action, a link, a paypal button, an email collector right on your videos, instead of asking people to leave by clicking on a link? In terms of Facebook marketing, this would be mega-useful because people born within the walls of the blue megacity fear to tread outside into the wilds of the free internet, which is why I am wholeheartedly recommending you take a moment to look at what SociVids could do for your business.
My SociVids review goes like this – getting into the software and watching the training videos took about 20 minutes and it’s really easy to use. I made one mistake of putting the start times in my YouTube videos in the format 1.01 instead of 1:01 and thought I’d found a glitch. I emailed support (which actually goes directly to the software creator, Brett Rutecky) and he replied within minutes, pointing out my error without laughing. Thanks Brett
So then I decided to test the lower thirds feature which allows you to put a link directly into your video, which you can see in my on-page SEO Guide ebook promotional video below. The link comes up at 0:30, although you can’t see the time on this because of the settings I’m using, so you’ll just have to count
I have long said that every click is a barrier to a sale, and I think that is truer now than ever before. The fact is that until this software came out the best you could do on Facebook was tell people to click on a link or show them a link – if the link, or the email sign up, or the paypal button is directly on the video, you’re just greasing the pathn even more which can only result in one thing: more results for you.
Also, boosting a post on FB is often way cheaper than creating adverts, so I’m liking that part of it too.
I think this has incredible potential for local business marketing on FB. If you are one of our Land Grab Video Package customers, you need to get them all on FB using this software (email me if you want Attwood Digital to do this for you).
I have a niche FB page with 10,000 Likes that I’m going to test using someone else’s product video from YouTube and an affiliate link from Amazon to see how that works. Will report back soon…

I first met Lemn Sissay in 1990. He was performing his poetry at a pub near Manchester Polytechnic and I was reviewing him in my new role as Editor of the student magazine, PULP.
I was blown away so much that I put him on the front cover of my first issue wearing a Martin Luther King “I Have a Dream” shirt. In our in-depth interview we hit it off so well that we are still great friends today, 25 years later.
Lemn is also Godfather to my son Joe and was Best Man at my wedding. He’s a total genius, wonderful soul and a very inspiring person who grew up in foster care and care homes in Wigan after he was effectively “stolen” from his mother by the state and given the name Norman by a social worker (who named him after himself). Once he escaped to Manchester at the age of 16, he started ferociously writing and performing blistering poetry which has taken him all over the world and got him an MBE.
Last month he told me he was up for election against the odious Peter Mandleson for the post of Chancellor of the University of Manchester. I must admit, I thought he stood no chance and was in the race as a token gesture, even though the idea of him becoming Chancellor was delicious.
But – he did it! He became Chancellor, which I think is incredible, forward-thinking and will be amazing for the University.
Here’s the video that helped him towards this towering achievement:
And here’s the interview I did with Lemn in a London pub a while ago:
Lemn is living proof that anything is possible. Yes, he’s amazingly talented, but so are you. Never forget it.
