How to live an extraordinary 2021

Happiness is found in creating an extraordinary life. There is no secret formula for success, and no one way to find happiness. It is different for everyone, and totally up to you. But creating an extraordinary life starts with developing a clear vision for your life, and goal-setting against a clear vision will accelerate your growth significantly.

We've invited someone back to help you achieve exactly this.

Our Founder and fearless leader at The Entourage, Jack Delosa, is back for this episode of The Make It Happen Show, and he's brought along his 21 rules to live by in 2021. Regardless of what you're going to focus on this year - whether it's your business and career, health, personal or spiritual development or more - you can't miss this episode. Check it out, and don't forget to leave us a review with your favourite rule. Here's to you, and to an amazing 2021.

Bruce Casanovic

Amazing guests, great insights into their journey and what has helped make their businesses successful. Great to hear how some of the guests have navigated challenge as well. Loads of good practice takeaways.

Perfect for the Monday commute


Great to listen to on the commute to work on Monday mornings. Great content, well delivered and plenty of insights from industry leaders in a variety of fields. Good to see the entourage getting out there with a podcast series

Top-shelf guests. Top-shelf conversations.


This is so awesome, so helpful, and so fresh. Right from the get-go, the team at The Entourage have brought out the big names in the Aussie entrepreneur and business space to have conversations that every business owner should listen to. I can't wait to see who they bring on next.

Amazing guests


Loved the episode with Tim Fung, Airtasker CEO! You guys are getting some awesome guests in! Thank you!

Entourage on point again!

Adz Rodger

Great content again from The Entourage! Particularly like the 1st episode and the points Tim Fung made about making sure you make time to map out the future and don't get stuck on day to day 'work', as well as the observation that you really need to be strategic about your people management and not just try to save money. Two awesome take homes I have already taken action on!

For entrepreneurs and non-trepeneurs alike


Well this was one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. I’m by no means the target demographic, having zero business or entrepreneurial experience at all. Luckily the advice given for business growth and success is remarkably applicable to personal growth and success. Loved the conversational style, by the end of the podcast I felt like I knew both Tims personally, which is a great mark of engagement. And I loved hearing about the humble beginnings of Airtasker from the founder himself. Give this a listen if you’re craving a bit of personal or professional inspiration.
