Last week, I gave a presentation to my Roundtable Europe mastermind group. The talk marked the 20th anniversary (to the day) of leaving my last – and final – j-o-b, as the marketing manager at Synergetic Micro Systems, Inc.

(I left Synergetic to hang up my shingle as a direct marketing consultant, laying the foundation of what would become Planet Perry.)

The recording of that talk is below and I HIGHLY recommend you listen.


Because I summarize the journey I’ve been on over the past 20 years and how that trajectory led to what I’m doing with Evolution 2.0 and cancer research funding.

What is "80" and what is "20" for your business right now? Take my 2-minute quiz and I'll show you where you'll get the highest compound interest on your time and money!

These are pursuits that dwarf anything I’ve ever done before.

It’s not just me. I’m discovering that this trajectory is mirrored in the lives of some of my top clients. (Maybe you’ll relate too.)

I also reveal an audacious goal: getting all of my work to be Renaissance Time work.

…And why you should too.

Listen below.

  1. Perry, so you became motivated differently, by a cause and a sense of purpose. Matching social need to talent. The most “Influential and productive people,” tend to be driven by a deep need to right a wrong, fix a social condition, etc. That is inspiring. Thanks for broadening my purpose and the meaning behind ‘why’ I am actually here on this Internet thing, attempting to do business. It’s not just about revenue. GD. (New Zealand).
