Todays guest on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots is a fellow podcaster who has a great mission in life.
He is a man who is becoming an expert in helping couples find the spark in their once vibrant relationships.
He helps build bridges where there are chasms to cross.
He inspires conversation where there is simply silence.
And he encourages bedroom passions, where there are just snores and sleeping.
But if this sounds like a man who has lived a life of perfect relationships and harmonious connections leading towards the perfect career then think again.
As he says "Early in life, I learned about the heartache that comes when love doesn’t work.
Coming into this world, I was fatherless, and the youngest of three. Life in Medellin, Colombia wasn’t easy.
My Mother was 25 years old, addicted to cocaine, and didn’t have any interest in taking care of her three kids.
When I was five years old my Mother was murdered. I was homeless for three years until I was finally adopted.
My life was transformed! I had a Mother, Father, and was surrounded by a loving family in America.
Soon after though, my adopted parents divorced. I was left confused and feeling like I couldn’t rely on love.
I made up my mind that love doesn’t last and turned to spirituality for the connection I was seeking. For nearly a decade, I devoted my life to becoming a monk. My path into spirituality taught me a great deal—But no matter how much I learned there was something missing.
That all changed when I met my first love. With her I found what I was searching for. I found someone I could be completely authentic and open with and someone who could see all of me. Falling in love was one of the most amazing experiences. It was much more than any meditation or spiritual experience could offer.
Then she broke my heart and left."
So he has had some serious moments in his ife, which could have left him saying "Why me?....Whats the point in loving?"
But instead he has been left with "How can I help you?" which is allowing him to gain more and more success and of course time freedom
Well let's bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only solopreneur himself. The health expert Luis Congdon.
