Entrepreneur is a word that so many people like to attach to themselves, but what does it really mean?
Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a traveling entrepreneur who is making his own life everyday.
And what really makes me love hosting a show like Join Up Dots, as in his own way he is part of my story….my dots.
When I started getting the research together and reading about him, I thought “Wow, I know this man already. I have been telling his story to friends and colleagues for the last few years….he was one of my inspirations”
AJ Leon is a man who went against all the rules, when he found himself at a crossroads in life.
He had followed the path most expected, getting a good job, earning great money, and living a life that spelt Success with a capital S.
But just when things couldn’t get any better, and a big promotion was on the cards he turned full circle and went in a direction that is 100% him.
He took the first steps to finding his unique self.
And the rest as they say is history.
As he travels around the world with his wife, he applies his great philosophy to life, which also forms the name of his website “the Pursuit of Everything.”
He tries to live his life with intention, do work that truly matters, devote time working on projects that benefit those less fortunate than himself, and to give more than he gets.
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only AJ Leon.
During the episode we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How in life you have to keep on swinging before you ever hope to hit a home run, and its the misses that fine tune for when you hit big!
How his wife to be wasn’t upset that he had quit his job three days before getting married, but instead was simply pleased to have him back. She had missed the man that she had fallen in love with.
How he wrote down a two year plan of how he wanted his life to be, and used it as the bible to how he would operate from that point onwards.
How he believes that many people could travel with freedom, but you have to decide on how much adventure you are able to deal with…he has a very high adventure level.
How his career advisor told him that he shouldn’t think of going into business, as he should think about being a mechanic instead…nothing wrong with mechanics but shame on you Miss Mitchell!!!
