Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview is Mr Simon Knapp, a man who can literally fly to heights that we can only dream about.
he has the freedom of time and altitude as being a commercial airline pilot, he has for the last few years travelled the world transporting businessman, holiday makers, and screaming children to destinations across the globe.
All the while planning other ventures, businesses and careers the ability to provide a fair deal to the world of freelance work.
After realising that a vast proportion of the fee charged by a freelance agency did not go the person doing the work, but instead into their own coffers for what seemed minimal effort, Simon Knapp knew he was onto something.
So along with his wife, Simon created “Cherished Ideas”, where freelancers can virtually sit in the same room with potential employers and sell their wares, with no commission passing hands.
A real bonus to all concerned.
So how did this Englishman first manage to get into the rarefied world of commercial airlines, and why does he seem so focused on building a life away from it?
What was the moment when the motivation to tackle his first business opportunity first raised its head, and was it the first venture he tried?
And with a plane at his disposal where does he truly call home?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only Mr Simon Knapp.
