Purpose Powers Profit, with Harvee Pene. How connecting to purpose will improve your leadership, engage your team and attract more of the right customers.

Better World Leaders

Harvee Pene is the Co-Founder of Inspire Accountants – Accountants Who Change Lives, a TEDx Speaker, Author and all-round transformational dude who has been recognised as one of Ten Outstanding Young People in Australia.In this episode we discuss in so many ways the meaning of life. Or at least, how to lean into the toughness of life in order to learn, grow and find meaning. In particular, we look at the journey of discovery to find a greater purpose than yourself in your work and through your career – in Harvee’s experience that as an accountant his opportunity is to change lives and enable businesses to become forces for good.He has come a long way from a under-privileged upbringing in New Zealand to founding and leading a company regularly recognised as one of Australia’s Top100 businesses – Inspire Accounting. Having recognised an inclination to do more and to change the world, the way he chose to realise that was to confront a life-threatening cancer and focus his life and energies on a greater cause in response to this questions – If today was your last day, would you be happy with what you’re leaving behind?His response to this question was to embrace the call to reach beyond his own success, and the success of his clients and to do good and inspire others to become forces for good themselves. This shifted his life mantra from YOLO to YODO, from You Only Live Once to You Only Die Only. We get to live everyday, and in doing so how can we inspire before we expire!!!The question that we then go on to explore in depth is how to do this, how to maximise your contribution and the inspiration this brings to the world. For Harvee, this involved first achieving two goals – to save his clients $10million in combined tax savings, and to give 10million days of live changing access to clean water and sanitation to the worlds poorest people. What he found from a business perspective was that the more good they achieved in the world, the better they did as a business – motivation was higher, team engagement was higher, productivity was higher and all manner of client processes and outcomes saw huge improvement.Having achieved both of these initial goals, he’s now more than doubled down – aiming to achieve the seemingly impossible task of giving 1billion days of life changing help.One of the ways Harvee is progressing towards this goal is by launching (along with Better World Leaders very first guest, Paul Dunn) a global network of ‘Accountants for Good’, to connect and enable accountants everywhere to act as forces for good in our world.Key messages from this episode;- Life is tough – prepare yourself for a walk in the park – Jurassic Park!- Make every opportunity to make your legacy one you will be proud of. Ask yourself, if today was my last day, would you be happy with what you leave behind?- All business have the potential and the opportunity to be a force for good- Accountants can change lives, and if you’re in business anywhere, so can you if you chose to focus on contributing to a purpose higher than yourself- That purpose powers profit, engages teams, engages customers and makes leadership more impactful- We have the opportunity to change from viewing our fellow practitioners in any area as competition, and shift to making them collaborators, and by sharing what we’re doing and what’s working, to make a live changing contribution.Get in touch with Harvee here;www.harveepene.comAdditional resources mentioned in our conversation.- T-0 app – here- Harvee’s TEDx talk hereAs always, great thanks and appreciation to the team who contributed to bringing Better World Leaders to you;To Brendan Ward for production of all audio recordings and composition and performance of original music throughout each episode.To Cooper and the team at RadioHub studios for technical support and creative guidance during the episodes that are recorded face-to-face.

192. Give Others a Voice: Ronsley Shares his Take with Harvee Pene

Should I Start A Podcast

Our voice is more about what we say and how we sound. Everything we’ve been through in our lives - every struggle, every triumph - shapes our voice and our view on the world. It’s so important to get your voice out there, because you never know what hearing your voice could do for someone who is afraid to share theirs. Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast where each week Ronsley Vaz, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explores why you should start a podcast, build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more.  If you’re thinking about starting a podcast or simply looking for a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you. In this episode of Should I Start a Podcast, we revisit an episode of Harvee Pene’s podcast Inspiring Business for Good, where Ronsley was a guest. Harvee, who is an author, a TEDx Speaker and accounting guru, asked Ronsley some insightful questions about entrepreneurship, dealing with failure and giving back. Ronsley, who is never shy about sharing his story, takes us through what it was like to lose his beloved restaurant, and how he came back through that. He also touches on why he views giving as “selfish”, but he does it anyway. Harvee gets Ronsley to give us some juicy details about how he came up with Amplify, how he’s still shocked that he makes a living with his voice and why giving others a voice makes it all worth it. Also within this episode: Why Ronsley views giving as selfish but does it anyway Why Rochelle always wants him to go the market with her The conversation that shifted Ronsley’s perspective How Ronsley’s immersion in many different cultures gives him an advantage Imposter Syndrome and why you shouldn’t feel alone Why you should never half-ass a podcast Links: Inspiring Business for Good Podcast Harvee Pene on LinkedIn MustAmplify.com Ronsley on Twitter

How to pull more money, time and happiness from your business with Harvee Pene

Get Happy Hour

EPISODE – HAREVEE PENE BIOGRAPHY Harvee’s first business was at 12-years-old, mowing neighbourhood lawns. Five years later, at age 17, Harvee had saved enough and bought his first investment property. He started his second business at 18 as a scaffolder, and five years later built it in to a large construction training and labour hire company. Wanting to ‘get off the tools’, Harvee started his next journey as a part-time intern in an accounting firm while studying accounting at Queensland University of Technology. Over the next five years, he helped build a change management consulting firm which helped over 600 accounting firms around Australia make positive impacts in their clients’ lives; this company was later floated on the Australian Securities Exchange. That’s where Harvee met Ben Walker – the founder of Inspire CA, and together they joined forces and now lead the award-winning team of life-changing accountants at Inspire. Harvee is a TEDx speaker and has spoken on stage alongside his business idol, Michael E Gerber. He is also the founder of Accountants For Good–a global movement that disrupts a very ‘old school’ accounting industry. Co-author of Cashed Up : the 7 step method to pull more money, time and happiness from your business, and Ambassador for Thank you Water and B1G1, Harvee’s passion for spreading the good knows no bounds. Despite Harvee’s success, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for him. Blindsided by testicular cancer, Harvee took this life-altering situation and with his typical true grit and courage, miraculously reduced the tumour markers by 80% in four weeks. As a numbers person, Harvee believes that family is number one. His mission is to create a business that gives him the freedom to always put family first and to help others do the same. In doing this, his mission to make a difference in the world will be accomplished SHOWNOTES Harvee’s journey into business started at childhood as he learnt from an early age that business was a means to survival as he came over as a 3 year old from New Zealand to escape poverty with his family. Lead, write and speaking are Harvee’s key roles he does every day. Wealth dynamics by Roger Hamilton was a key framework that changed the game for how he conducts his day-to-day life. Harvee talks about where his businesses have impacted other people in other countries. Being true to your life purpose is what Harvee’s definition of happiness. Harvee’s gratitude and routine starts with family first and connection with them first. Looking at your life’s purpose and doing things that light you up is the way that governs your routine Harvee discusses fantasy dinner dates Gratitide practices that Harvee undertakes in the business and personal world are creating “team thank you circles” for the things they’ve seen each other do and achieve.

Episode 86. Harvee Pene interview

The insecurity project

Today’s guest is Harvee Pene; a 3x author, TEDx Speaker, host of the Inspiring Business for Good podcast and co-founder of Inspire - Life Changing Accountants.This really was a wonderful conversation, and in fact I got choked up a couple of times as we dived deep into talking about the the things that really matter.Harvee is such a brilliant communicator who clearly smokes what he’s selling! A couple of my favourite quotes to come out of the interview were: “Purpose eats insecurity for breakfast” and “Insecurity hates speed.”He also talks about the value of developing 101 goals and having them clearly displayed on your fridge. Something which I have always integrated into my life to great affect.I’m sure you’ll get so much gold from what Harvee shares on this episode. The books mentioned on todays show are:“You have the power to change stuff.” Daniel Flynn“The entrepreneur revolution” Daniel Priestly“Think big and kick ass” Donald J Trump and Bill ZankerYou can find out more about Harvee here:https://inspire.business/team/harvee-pene/https://www.facebook.com/harvee.pene
