And I was like, it would pay me to pay that because the only thing back then I knew it, I was a young kid, I was buying a 1299 CDs, right from Tower Records. So since $99, for CD set, and I purchased it. And then over the years, I've seen so much great training available for free, right?

So Nene, great to finally talk to you. I've been trying to track you down for ages. You're so busy traveling all over the place, but set the scene where are you now what glamorous location Are you in?

Neen James 1:05
You're joining me from my home studio in Tampa, Florida. So I used to live on the east coast of the US for like 15 years. And then before everyone went into lockdown before the craziness that is happening in the world at the time of recording, I ended up moving to Florida. And so I was very glad to be in this beautiful place. But the accent originally from Sydney, Australia, oh,

mark egan 1:29
one thing I've really loved just, you know, watching interviews that you've done and looking at your website, you've got such a great personal brand. I mean, obviously it's your personality shining through that. Then when you look at your background, you know, you're in banking, which to me, maybe it's a stereotype, but banking is something that screams you know, personality fun, you know? So how, you know, how did you go from you, you're in Australia, then you're in banking to what you do now.

Neen James 1:59
I was so fortunate I grew up in corporate business in Australia, like you said, so I worked in retail banking, telecommunications, and the oil industry mark. Now at the time, though, not a lot of ticks in oil, right. But when I decided that I was I was constantly getting attention for being the person who could get things stuff, right. They would give me projects to look behind, they would give me the fundraising projects, like I was the girl who could stand up in front of hundreds of people and convince them that they needed to write checks for $10 million. I mean, I was literally that go. And so I kind of took a lot of that for granted. And then when I decided to leave the corporate world in Australia, and start my own business, someone said to me once, you should be...

mark egan  01:21

With you look at your about you page, it says ESP tapping and a million other things, which we'll come on to but we should probably start with a simple question. Because if you are at a party and you say to somebody, you know, I'm, I'm an expert on tapping, they probably say, Great, I really want to know what my wife says on the phone calls could you kind of listen in for me, you know, they've watched too much homeland or something. But tapping out or EFT is another name for my limited knowledge of this I was thinking about when I first became aware of it. And I think it was my favorite football team or soccer as you call it as arsenal. I remember seeing the teams lining up ready to walk out through the tunnel onto the field. And this is big, German, defendable, perimeter second, and it was just tapping furiously on his chest. And I'm thinking, What's wrong with him? He looks really nervous. It's a big game, you know, he doesn't look like he's really composed. And I looked at the comments on social media, and people say, Oh, it's tapping. He's obviously just calming himself down and getting focused before the game. And I've never heard the...

mark egan  00:50

Okay, so Rob, really great to speak to you. I know you're in Thailand and in my mind whenever I speak to people who are like working out of Thailand I vision the MENA with this beach hut, you know, the the sea lapping against their toes and their laptop on there. But I'm guessing it's not like that. So we're about stealing, what kind of place do you live in?

Rob Cubbon  01:06

I live in Chiang Mai, which is a very unfortunately landlocked, it's it's it's kind of 500 kilometers from the nearest bit of coastline, I have to say, I did go down to the Copenhagen coastal movie, I've just got back from an island. So if you if you'd interviewed me, like two months ago, I would have shown you the sea lapping against the bungalow. But at the moment, I'm in a city, which has 200 to 400,000 people in it, depending on where you draw the boundary. And it's a very nice place. It's, if you get outside, it's very rural. And there's a great entrepreneurial international community here. And the Thai people are also great, and entrepreneurial, as well. So all in all, it's a good place to base myself at this at this time there.

mark egan  01:56

So we'll come to later on, like, why you've ended up there and what you're doing and all that kind of thing. But a lot of people I speak to who have created online courses or a business using their expertise, this story tends to begin with, I was in some kind of corporate job. And then I got fed up a bit. And I thought, right, I'm going and I'm now going to kind...
