Reclaim Your Freedom
Tuesday at 1 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Do you want to learn and apply what other successful business owners, entrepreneurs and leaders do to create a business and a lifestyle they love? If so, Reclaim Your Freedom is for YOU.
Many business owners start their business because they are good at what they do. They are great technicians, working in the business, with little experience leading and managing people or running a successful business.
Many find themselves trapped, unable to take time off, feeling stressed because they have little time and money or feeling like a workaholic with money but no time.
Shirley and her guests open their hearts and share their experiences and proven systems and strategies so you can create your ideal business lifestyle, whether that means scaling, growing and expanding your business or being able to comfortably step away from the business for a day, a week or more and know it will still run smoothly without you.
Known as Australia’s Business Systemizer, Shirley Dalton is a sought after speaker, two time best-selling author, TV show host and in demand consultant for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Chief Executive Officer of Dalton Business Systems and formerly the Chief Operating Officer for an Australian International Franchise Organization, she was responsible for creating and streamlining internal systems and structures which enabled the company to list on the Australian Stock Exchange and grow from 250 franchises to over 600 worldwide.

Shirley and her associates work with business owners, entrepreneurs and leaders to systematize and streamline their businesses so they work for them AND their people.
Growing up as an only child of hard working taxi proprietors who had money but no time, Shirley is on a mission to help business owners have both. It is possible to have a business and a life and through her radio program, Shirley and her guests share proven systems and strategies so you too can be free to live the life you want and reach the Freedom quadrant on the Time, Money and Freedom Matrix, no longer feeling trapped by your business.

Travis has spent almost a decade educating the wealthy on better techniques and strategies to improve their personal finance, investments, and taxes. Over time he learned that one of the key differences between those with wealth and those without, is the type of financial education they receive. The current system guides the brightest advisors to the wealthy leaving the masses to their own devices. Without a trained advisor to guide people through the process of debt elimination and then on to wealth creation, the masses have been and will continue living in financial peril with no real light at the end of the tunnel. Travis and his team have created an easy to follow educational and implementation series that teaches people how to get completely out of debt, including their mortgage, without affecting their lifestyle or spending habits.
