My guest today on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots entrepreneur podcast interview is a man who has had quite a varied career since starting as a Solutions Specialist for Accenture, before transitioning into a Senior Software Developer a role he fulfilled for over six years.
And it seems to me that he has spent the bulk of his time developing the skills to implement and develop IT systems and platforms, where actually he had a burning desire to develop humans.
And this is the fascinating part of life, and something I talk about often.
That when transitioning to a new life, most of us try to escape for the old one.
But actually most of it isnt too bad, just some of it doesn't fulfill us, or make us believe that we are getting what we should.
But we have skills within those old lives that we can and should be taking with us, to make it easier in the future.
And that is what our guest has done today, as since 2014 he has worked tirelessly to help the world live better lives and develop systems that can make us all dream bigger.
But don't think for a minute that this is a guy who talks the talk, but doesn't have the experience to say "Hey, I've been though some pretty tough times myself, have I told you about overcoming alcohol abuse and the story of my wife's tragic suicide due to bipolar disorder."
So how has he taken this career history and turned it into something profitable, enjoyable and valuable to the world?
And does he feel that we are always on the right path, it just sometimes takes awhile to see how the dots are all joining up ?
Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Jason MacKenzie.
