Dear Kent from Oz......

I am so inspired by the many people who read my blog and watch my videos.

It is humbling and exciting all rolled into one.

Every day I receive emails and messages from around the world from people who are interested in what I do.

There have been so many amazing questions, comments and suggestions. It has provided me with so many ideas to video and write about.

I often cut and paste the best ones into a Word document to keep.

Sometimes I get some really 'different' comments from people who I am sure are well-meaning.
I thought I would share a few that either made me chuckle or made my day.

  • I love the way you talk with your fingers!
  • I know the left one is a wedding ring - but are you married to two woman?
  • I'm glad to see the wart on your thumb has healed!
  • I know your Australian but you sound smarter than that!
  • You and Russell Crowe must be twins            (I like THAT one KfO)
  • Great video Kent. Does being mentioned in a Kent from Oz video mean I am now famous?
  • When can we see you FACE!?!? Is there something wrong with it?
  • You accent and voice are like mellow chocolate!
  • I thought I saw you at Office Max. I wasn't sure. Do you live in the US? They had the same Filofax as you. The same hands. They had the same rings. Then she turned and it was a woman.
  • If you call that Franklin Covey a "Filofax" one more time, I'm unsubscribing!
  • What happened to your wristwatch?
  • Are you really from OZ? What's it like?
  • Please talk more slowly, I can't understand you!
  • How much gold did you use to make the words in the title sequence?
  • Your arms are not hairy. How come? Do you shave them?
  • I really liked your video, I really did. Then I watched it again and I changed my mind....
  • I can't get my head around your Spiralsex!
  • I'd use your Spiraldex if it wasn't so curved.
  • You are so funny. I laugh even when you are being serious.
  • What part of Australia is Oz?
  • We never see your face! What are you hiding? Are you in hiding? I'll pray for you!

and the best most flattering one of them all......

  • This video is the BEST. I have learnt so much. We make babies yes?


  1. This is so funny!! I can't believe these are real comments. People have guts. But it gave me a wonderful laugh! Thanks for this post

  2. This was great Kent! It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it! Glad you can find the humor in it all! Keep up the great work!

  3. I sure hope the " we make a baby" wasn't from a guy in New Zealand!

  4. I can't decide whether my favourite is "but then she was a woman" or "your Spiraldex is too curvy"

  5. Jaja! Such a funny post!!!

  6. Thanks for sharing these, they're brilliant :)

  7. Ohhh I so loved reading this, Kent! Thank you for sharing them. I laughed out loud at a few of them! Brilliant!

  8. Good thing you have a good sense of humour. I wonder how many people don't even know where "Oz" is.
