Go Bust or Grow Up
Welcome to the race, the human race. And what a race it’s been. No one ever considered or could have imagined the magnitude of just how the Covid_19 Pandemic would decimate our world as we knew it.
We each have a story or three of how we’ve been impacted. The least of which was the infamous world shortage of toilet rolls and yeast. For many, their jobs or studies were interrupted and remote working became the new norm. But for the Entrepreneur, it became a tale of two choices – go bust or grow up.
That All Important Work/Life blend
We’ve all heard of the utopian existence of a work life balance. But can that really be possible? The 4 Hour week, Friday Friday’s – they’re all great aspirations. But when you have a business to run, payroll and suppliers to pay, and a family to provide for sometimes the joy of why you chose your career or started your business seems to get lost in the busyness of the moment. Can you find balance or is it more of a blend to be created. With 40 years of business experience and now 17 years since we created We Make Stuff Happen, we’ve learned a thing or two. We’ve always openly shared what we’ve larned and been up to and now it’s time to create that inner circle of knowledge sharing, marketing innovation and business growth. We invite you to join us at our virtual boardroom table.
The future of a successful entrepreneur is not just about turning a profit. Time has taught us that life is way more precious and that each day is a gift.
What if we were to look afresh at our priorities and carve out a new mindset that not only brought in profitable business but a fantastic lifestyle that also gave back to yourself, your family, your community and our world.
Sounds like a pipedream?
For some maybe – but for me it’s been a rich vein of learning new pathways and loving life. In the recession of 2008 I created one the world’s leading boutique digital agencies – We Make Stuff Happen. And, in 2022, we launched a very successful mastermind with the latest and most innovative and important developments. This is not just another mastermind – this is the birth of a movement. And it’s called The Happening.
How fast you run or how slow you walk is entirely your choice. But as the world comes out of quarantine there has never been a more opportune time to reevaluate and reprioritize your business life.
We all know the success stories of Zoom, Amazon, Hello Fresh, and Peloton. They were all ready to embrace the digital marketplace. We all know of businesses that have been crushed or closed. Was it the market or was it their marketing and mindset?
Many businesses are in a race to the bottom of the barrel. The mentality of having is you must have the lowest price and need to sell it fast. And that okay if you’re Walmart. But what if you are looking for good margins and a low stress life?
The Walmart model works on the need to constantly sell thousands of products but that’s a lot of work. Many people don’t know how to do this but lots of us do.
If you’re looking for the middle or high ground – you really need to study your people, you really understand your place you understand your product, you can sell for a great margin and a great life. I know they say money doesn’t bring you happiness but without it it’s pretty hard and that’s what the Happening all about.
A way of finding new clients, new partners, new people that will bring you the business that you want give you lifestyle that you desire and it’s called that work life blend.
That’s what we are about and I invite you to join me on this journey it starts in 2023 and it’s called the Happening. This is not just a mastermind it is a birth of a movement.

See what business owners who have already worked with us have to say…
“I found Jonathan when looking for a certified StoryBrand guide to help build a website for my new business. It was immediately clear that the team at We Make Stuff Happen knew how to build a well-designed website with effective copy. Thankfully, that wasn’t where our relationship ended.
From there, I enrolled in the ‘Get Known & Dare to be Digital’ three-day course. This course came just as my business’ social media needed to get started. Jonathan presented everything in a way that transformed me from being unsure how to start to posting confidently the very next day.
Next, I participated in the VIP Virtual Mastermind Group. Together we learned and compared notes on digital marketing strategies. My business went from just starting on social media to having an effective strategy amongst multiple accounts. Thanks to the Mastermind Group, people are really beginning to notice my business and revenue is increasing.
By working with Jonathan, so much more has been gained than just a great website. I’ve also gained a deeply trusted business partner.”

“I was totally in the dark about using social media for building and growing a business before meeting Jonathan. He’s both incredibly knowledgeable, and so easy to work with.
Over the weeks in the VIP Mastermind, I learned so much! It helped me to clarify how I might use social media in my business. I now have a better understanding of the value of using, how to use, and how to create great content for social media.
It was also great to be a part of a group of incredible people all working to grow their businesses. This was an awesome experience. I highly recommend the VIP Mastermind.”
Pratima Ramlall, BSc, BEd, MSc, PhD
Chief Operations Officer, Chintan Project
“The Virtual VIP Mastermind has been hands down the best mastermind program I’ve participated in. The program goes beyond introducing concepts and strategies that you’re left to implement on your own. The coaching includes specific how-to DIY implementation guidance and individual feedback to achieve your business goals. Jonathan is dedicated to working towards each participant’s success, no matter where they are in their business. This is a one-in-a-million mastermind.”
Get The Job You Want, Change Your Life
BE CALM, BE KIND, BE SAFE…
AND TOGETHER, LET’S #MAKESTUFFHAPPEN
Can this really be possible? Can I truly
keep my business running fully online?
Yes You Can and We’re Here to Help!
Maybe you can relate…
You’ve never really “got” social media. Feeling too late to the game, too old and out of touch,
You would rather have your privacy over posting what you had for lunch.
Wouldn’t it be great to…
Know which Platforms to use and how to post so that you get real engagement without adspend.
Knowing each day just what to do and what to say to bring in good business.
Have more time, less stress, improved profits and finally enjoy your marketing
