What others are saying...

“I had the opportunity to meet with Peter Daniels and his son Graham…. At the time of the meeting I had a number of properties, all encumbered. I am pleased to announce, as from 2 weeks ago I am completely debt free… I am now yielding significant profits and rewards in multiple businesses. I am so thankful to God for the advice I received in that meeting in Adelaide…”Neal B - Australia

"Meeting with Mr. Daniels and Graham Daniels was one of best investments that I have done in my life. Thank you for all the insights.... look forward to meeting up again in the near future. Thank You!"David K. - USA

“...to personally consult with you... has been one of the most exciting moments in my business....by far the most relevant training I have ever received.... my expectations were far exceeded... by applying the wisdom that you and your son Graham Daniels shared with us, I found my growth to be exponential! I cannot thank you enough for the time that you spent to teach, inspire and show by example what it takes to succeed in different areas of life... Our business endeavors will never be the same.”Rene F. - MEXICO

"After my consultation with both Mr. Peter J. Daniels and Graham Daniels, I was asked why I traveled 20,000 miles for 2.5 days; endured numerous snow storms and flight cancellations for a one (1) full day consultation. My response was and is still very simple, because in the last 10+ years of searching, I could not find anyone in the U.S or elsewhere that can provide me a debt-free philosophy with strong biblical, financial and practical solutions for my current business questions that has and can produce real and tangible results in my life; except for these gentlemen. The consultation has not only established a stronger foundation in my relationship with Christ, my personal life, my family and my businesses; in a very short period of time it has also accelerated my progress, simplified my structures (while honoring the LORD and the law), provided peace through this simplicity, and helped me finalize a custom-made life and financial plan for me and my family for generations to come."Jeff S. - USA

“...the opportunity arose, to have a personal interview in Adelaide, with Mr. Daniels and his son Graham.... I took the whole family for a full day, round table discussion and the ongoing benefit was deep and still being realised.”Stephen M. - AUSTRALIA

Biography Continued...

While coming from a poor dysfunctional family background and suffering from ill health and dyslexia he never passed one grade at school. However, from this humble beginning he developed a deep faith in God and confounded the skeptics.

Happily married to Robina, he enjoys the love, friendship and support of a very close knit family with three children and eight grandchildren.

The mass media at times has called him an 'adrenalin charged salesman,' a ‘religious nut’ and a ‘battle scarred champion’ of a dozen crusades.

The business community has said of him ‘he could motivate an Egyptian mummy to walk’ and yet others call him an ‘International Business Statesman’. Church leaders refer to him as a missionary to the business world and a merchant of hope, and speak widely of his generosity.

Books, magazines and newspapers print stories about his life, which are often featured on radio and television talk show and news reports. Schools and students throughout the world write essays about his life, his humble beginnings and his determination to succeed in whatever task he has before him. One newspaper said “he expects everything to be done yesterday and has an uncanny way of making sure that it is”.

He has received honors from universities, theological colleges, governments, business and humanitarian organizations from around the world.

Thousands flock to hear him speak wherever he travels across the globe and his books sell at a frantic pace. One of his presentation recordings on the subject of encouragement is attributed to have sold over one million copies.

He is a genius at creating simple business formulas to solve difficult problems and has spoken to more live audiences throughout the world than any other Australian.

The rise and rise of Peter J Daniels was painfully slow commencing fulltime menial work at thirteen years of age until he became a bricklayer and stonemason working piecework sometimes from 6am to 8pm seven days a week. The turning point in Peter's life was when he became a born again Christian at a Billy Graham Crusade on May the 25th 1959 in South Australia. Not long after that event, he believed that God had given him two dreams. The first was to see how much money one human being could give away in their lifetime and the second, was to change the world for 300 years. In pursuit of these dreams he purchased three dictionaries to understand words, and practiced pronunciation and speech by listening to British broadcasters on radio who in those early days spoke impeccable English. Without a tutor or mentor he studied economics, politics, modern and ancient history, theology, law, philosophy and business.

He soon discovered that the mind was like a muscle and could be developed, and has now personally read over 5,000 biographies. Although he failed three times in business he never went bankrupt but persevered and met his commitments. For nearly two decades he built a thriving business in real estate in Australia with South-East Asian connections and finally sold out to follow other business pursuits.

In 1984 he launched his first book that was the catalyst of the World Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies, which today, with a no debt philosophy, is one of the largest suppliers of Christian business education programs and books in the world.
