Introducing Tom Libelt Today's guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast has had a very interesting story to where he is today. Starting his life in Poland, he learned from a young age how to sell and negotiate business by getting haggled by Russian vendors. His family moved from Poland to the US to escape communism, and his parents took any job they could to survive. This was a huge learning curve for him, and seeing his parents work their tails off truly motivated him to never want a job. He didn't care what it was as such, but certainly the drive to earn his own cash, scaled his earning potential and living the life of his dreams was now his to work towards. And that is what he did, moving forward as an entrepreneur, publisher, salesman, and one of the top Polish hip hop artists. All of these hustle and online commitment allowed him to move where he wants to be across the world, leading him to Chiang Mai, Thailand. How The Dots Joined For Tom He now runs Smart Brand Marketing and We Market Online Courses, and too many seem like one of those guys with the Midas Touch, where everything he works on turns into gold. He has published around 5000 Kindle books, built a successful SEO & online course marketing business, partnered with a Muay Thai champion, owned a coffee shop, a retail store, a record label, created a documentary, and released two albums with five hits on top ten Polish radio. All of it was bootstrapped and done with zero outside funding. As he says "“If you can’t sell, then you’re not in business. Marketing and Sales are the backbone of a company.” So of course with so many strings to his bow, is there something that he loves more than anything? And what would be his advice to someone who says "I want to do what you do....how long will it take to make it happen? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Tom Libelt. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such deep weighty subjects with Tom Libelt such as: Why it such a great idea to network with entrepreneurs who attend conferences, but not necessarily attend the event themselves. Why the education system is 100% tailored to teach people how to work and not to think they have choices. The reasons that people that really get rich aren't truly workers, but work 100% on their core skill set everyday and lastly…… Why it is so important to push customers away so that you can get the right customers into your business. Be fussy.
