Join Up Dots Podcast

Today’s guest is quite simply showing the kind of get up and go entrepreneurship that leaves old timers like me in the shade.

He is an Executive Chairman of the Abella Group, a privately held  company that manages investments in a number of sectors that include, media, publishing, technology and financial services.

Now if that doesn’t sound too remarkable consider that he is still only fifteen years age, and the age of eight started his first business venture called Emerald Greeting Cards.

Sound amazing now?? I think so

From an early age he has had a firm belief that nature can teach us a lot lessons if we only take a closer look, and his two books, Swim or Drown and The Farm of Wisdom, both share business and life lessons he took from this very source of knowledge…nature.

If that hasn’t made you think wow, what the hell am I doing with my life, he is also a regular columnist to the Huffington Post, a First Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do in 2013.

So how has he managed to do something that I certainly wouldn’t have been able to do at his age. I’m not sure I could do it now?

So lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only, Warren Cassell Jr.

Todays guest is a lady who quite simply wont take no for an answer.

But unusually it is the no’s that she actively seeks out, and not like the rest of us the much more appealing “Yes’s

She believes that we are the products of our self-limiting beliefs in life.

We are frightened of what people are going to say.

We are frightened of what people are going to think.

We are frightened of people saying “No” to us.

So along with her business partner Richard Fenton she is actively helping individuals and organizations overcome self-imposed limitations and achieve breakthrough performance. 

They do this by sharing what they are known for best… Go for No!®

“Be brave people” she literally shouts across America and the world, and go get what you deserve.

So just in case you think that this ballsy approach was after a sudden epiphany in adulthood, then it seems like our guest was more than a bit positive as  child, even contacting George

Lucas to ask if she could work on Star Wars with him at the age of 8.

Ok, who thought “well she was always going get turned down by George Lucas”…..see a self-limiting thought.

So with presentations, media performances, and bestselling books to her name what No is she looking for now?

Well let’s find out as we start joining up dots, with the one and only Andre Waltz.

Todays guest was brought up in a council estate called Knowle West, in the city of Bristol in England, and started a lifetime passion of being creative and inspiring others to shake of their shackles and have the life of their dreams.

He believes that through one on one training and group workshops he can transform the mindset of those that work with him, and give the participant the tools to take the next steps towards realising their dreams.

He can find the root of what’s holding us back and help us move beyond those barriers and make long lasting change

Typically its the negative thinking, feeling stuck or overwhelmed limiting beliefs or resourceful habits that hold us back.

His method is concerned with the creative mindset: what it is, how to get into it, and how to apply it to “create” in general, be it music, art, ideas, business strategies or solutions.

 Essentially if you are someone whose livelihoods and success depends on the conception of ideas that our guest can help you keep those ideas flowing.

But if you think we are going to have a great conversation with a life coach, then think again, as he also has an alter ego DJ Krust, who has made many releases on V.Recordings, and with friends Roni Size & DJ Die made the label the phenomenon it is today. 

In his own right, he is probably most well-known for the mid-90s release “Warhead,” which was one of a handful of tunes released in early 1997 which saw drum and bass move towards a more streamlined sound.

So how does he balance his desire for musical output against his desire for increasing human potential?

And are there commonalities that he can see between his two very distinct passions in life?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only DJ Krust.

Todays guests, yes we have two people to join up dots with today are guys that through the online world I have got to know very well.

The first is a glamorous redhead from just outside Memphis in the USA, who through our love of podcasting and one show in particular connected, and over thousands of miles of water, support and encourage each other to follow our dreams, and create a future that is all our own. He has become my very own online Jiminy Cricket

He has had a path that has moved through many different areas from wanting originally to be a police officer, to frontline supervision, Manurfaturing, installing fences, and even following Mel Gibson around for a day snapping his every move as professional photographer for Disney.

The other, is from Detroit and spent many years in the US Marine Corps, before leaving the military and once again combining numerous different occupations. He has built foundations for newly constructed homes, manufactured aerospace products & parts, and even became Detroit's very own Jerry McGuire by starting his own small sports agency where he represented professional baseball players.

And now together they find themselves on the cusp of a new adventure, as both of them bring their personalities, knowledge and belief that they can help the world find a way to transition to a new life away from the 9-5 grind, with their new online show, the "Shifting work" podcast just about to launch.

So how did these two guys meet, and get to work together even though they live thousands of miles away from each other?

What was it about their previous incarnations that didn't quite work out for them?

And how do they maintain that unshakeable belief that the dream future they work so hard for is just around the corner.

Guest entrepreneurs who have an amazingly inspiring story of success, stumbles, career building, and prison. is someone who could quite rightly claims to have had two lives.

And in classic Join Up Dots style, both lives are so closely intertwined that one wouldnt have been possible without the other.

Which is why Entrepreneurs & Coffee is the perfect title for this show...as you will find out shortly.

As a young man,he was on a path that wasnt good. Getting into trouble with the law and spending time in jail on drug offences his life was heading one way and one way only.

But in all our lives we are provided opportunities in the strangest of places that can help us find the motivation to be want we want to be.

Its whether we actually spot those opportunities, that is the true issue that faces us all.

Well our guest did, and whilst in jail, he discovered computers and set off on an entrepreneurial journey that would instantly lead to failure, and then another failure, until finally gaining traction and success came his way.

He bootstrapped Spheric Technologies, a social enterprise consulting and applications company, which  grew by 150%+ each year, raked in many business awards, employed over 30 employees, before selling it in May of 2008.

And now he is on a path that is based around his own passions to support himself and his family, whilst also giving back to the world in the form of several charitable organisations.

So does he look back on his life and thank the dark times, for showing him the way?

And what made him try several times to get going in business, and still keep going when the road got hard?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only, Mr Dan Martell

Today's guest is a man who seems a person born to be an entrepreneur, although like many of us he forgot this was the case, and meandered without direction for quite awhile.

As a young boy of nine, he became fascinated by the worldwide web and the possibilities that it offered.

He was stimulated by the constantly changing online landscape, and so went into business creating his first online content the website "Powerdunk"

He had taken entreprenurial action and dived headfirst into the online world.

However he didn't then become a CEO of his own company, hiring and firing adults, webdevelopers and other employees with abandon.

Instead he quickly forgot his blossoming business, and became what we would say "A normal kid".

Fun and mischief was the order of the day, and would have continued if his parents hadn't insisted that he entered the family business to earn a dollar or two, and this parental push turned out to be the making of him.

He learnt so many things, such as sales, invoicing, marketing to name just a few whilst working for his parents, it was a masterclass in entrepreneurial ventures.

But the most important lesson, was not something taught, but something that he discovered deep within himself.

He hated being an employee and working for someone else.

And that realisation took him back to his nine year old self, and the entrepreneur that he was born to be resurfaced and he has never looked back.

And now after creating and selling businesses, and coaching others as to the steps it takes to win online, he has found his true path in life.

So does he look back to Powerdunk and think "Man I could have created something astonishing!"

Did he struggle with telling his parents that he didn't want to work with them anymore?

Well lets find out as I bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Jeet Banerjee.

Have you ever been on a school trip to a museum and after the initial “Yayyyy! We’re out of school” wore off, found the whole thing a bit boring.

Loads and loads of statues, stuffed animals, or tiny little plaques to read, which you start off with the best intentions of reading them all and then start gazing at them with blank eyeballs.

As you wonder why you ate your sandwiches so early?

Well I know that I have, and so its with great regret for me personally, but a huge delight for the people of New York, that one man has taken it on himself to bring these institutions to life for the latest generation.

Yep, like Ben Stiller in the “Night of the Museum” films, he alongside his colleagues run daily tours through the The Met and the Museum of Natural History acting scenes, telling stories and generally making it all fun.

As he says on his site “Museum Hacks” he loves nothing more than when someone says to him”That was the most fun I have ever had in a museum”

But like all overnight success stories, his is one of stumbles and falls, successes and failures, not least working for 8 years in his family business, making a film of him and his Dad in Thailand, and even appearing tin he Oscar nominated, record shattering, American Pie 2….ok it might not have won him an a Oscar, and actually his scene didn’t end up in the film either.

So let’s find out how Museum Hack can together.

What it was like working for his parents for 8 years?

And of course can he still remember the famous lines that now only appear on the American Pie 2 directors cut?

Todays guest is a man who from the age of 17 has focused his attention on not only developing the skills to obtain income on automatic pilot, but also to teach others how to do the same.

He is a mover and shaker with hustle muscle throughout his body.

From growing up in Kingston Canada he has now found himself living in San Diego California via Japan, with a dream to build a better life for not just himself, but those of his clients, and readers of his Amazon bestselling business books which soared to the top of the bestseller list quickly after release.

He provides tutorship and knowledge on how turn business leads into nuggets of gold, and has seen many of his ideas transform businesses across America.

But that is just part of what he is about, as with a interests in Martial Arts, a love of travel and an openminded entreprenueral spirit he really seems like someone who is just getting going on the road to what he will ultimately achieve.

And that is what makes this show fascinating as we not only connect the dots of a person life, but also take a look at where the dots are heading too.

So lets bring onto the show to start of course joining up the dots, the one and only Mr Daryl Urbanski

Todays guest is a lady that from an early age knew that she was driven to prove her talents to the world, and of course prove to herself what she could achieve.

From being born in Bavaria, and then moving to South Africa as a young girl, she recalls her childhood as a time of endless joy and adventure, and it was when she discovered for the first time the inspiring leadership qualities of nature.

But instead of staying in this idyllic situation she made the brave decision to jump across the world and start working for an American corporation that was to be the beginning of the American Dream that she wanted so much.

But the dream didn't last too long, as  after two years she realised her true passion was to inspire people across the world, with her focus on leadership, change and excellence.

From creating a company, to selling that company, to becoming the first and youngest ever Female president of the German DMA, to writing seven books and even excelling in television, she learnt, developed and conquered environments across the business spectrum

So when does she feel that her real self was born?

When did she realise that the leap of faith from corporate America was about to happen, and was she scared of the thought or invigorated by the upcoming challenges?

And what would she do differently if she got the chance?

Todays guest is a lady who has been showing the businesses of the world how to get unstuck and prosper in a turbulent world.

Since being nominated by the U.S. Small Business Administration this year for outstanding achievement, she was in the perfect position to deliver to the world the book Putting Together the Entrepreneurial Puzzle: The Ten Pieces Every Business Needs to Succeed


As she says “I like putting things together, figuring things out, for me it’s the puzzle aspect that I enjoy most about business,”

 

But her own life has been a bit of a puzzle too, and isn’t that what makes a life?

Originally she entered business as the manager of a family owned scuba diving shop in Oregon. 

She was 23, and had no business training in any shape or form. You might say she was wet to business.

Or she was out of her depth……you see what I did there?

And added to the mix the issues that come when raising children, going through a divorce and struggling for money, she had one thing that pulled her through.

And that was her determination to make her life a success.

So role on 30 years, and with awards, a successful business and a history of helping other do the same, what are the talents that she has which she feels are lacking across the globe?

And how did she keep going on the dark nights when everything seemed to be going in the wrong direction?

Todays guest is a man with not just a unusual name, but a fascinating tale of how he has reached a place in his life where he seems totally at ease and loving everyday.

Growing up in a tiny little town called Seven Points in East Texas for the first few years of his adult life he hadn't got into first gear.

Studying Graphic Design at college, he didn't start setting the world alight.

In fact I'm sure the only thing that he considered setting alight was the college.

It didn't suit him, and he hated every minute.

But he did what he had to do, and graduated before getting a job quickly in an advertising agency in Dallas.

And looking back I am assuming he hated college as in many ways it supressed his free spirit.

His desire to do things his own way.

His need to be creative on his own terms.

So fast forward to the evenings and like Bruce Wayne and his alter ego The Dark knight, our guest slipped effortless into his other role. That of guitar strutting rock god.

Yes, he worked hard with his band, toured nationally, playing festivals, getting on the radio, and sharing stage space with some of the biggest bands of the day. And then it came to an end.

His music career was no more.

So what do you do when everything you have worked for comes to an end.

Where do you go when you are at a crossroads in your life, and the dots that have led you to this point stop, and you are left with just your own vision of what life will be?

Most of us on the planet have a desire to be rich, so we can buy a big house, have lovely holidays and generally have a kickass life.

But how would you feel if overnight your family went the opposite way and went from being multi-millionaires to poor.

That is a hard thing to get over.

Well our guest has had a life intertwined with the paths of the rich and not so rich right since the early days, and like we see time and time again on Join Up Dots its the ability to reflect and start asking the right questions at the right time that can lead to finding the path that is right.

The path that our guest was made to live.

Whilst being a financial advisor, he was paid a visit by a client whose business was going under.

The man had worked hard to achieve financial freedom and the results of his efforts had left him with nothing.

He was distressed obviously and didn't know what to do

So what could our guest do to help?

How he could he help him get back on his feet, and most importantly make sure that it didn't happen again?

Well instead of thinking of just helping that single individual, our guest planned to help the world and set off on an odyssey to spend the next five years of his life studying the lives of both rich people and poor people.

He managed to segment out what he calls "rich habits" and "poverty habits," meaning the tendencies of those who fit in each group.

As he explains, everyone has some rich habits and some poverty habits. "The key is to get more than 50% to be rich habits," he says.


And now with his second book Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to Be Happy and Successful in Life  just released he is once again showing us the way to prosperity.

Well let's waste no more time as we bring onto the show, not to simply join up the dots of his life, but also to find out more about this 50%, the one and only Mr Tom Corley

Todays guest is a man who quite simply knows how to get things done.

The master non-procrastinator.

The king of batching, the prince of the 80/20 principle,and Lord of my favourite law too...Parkinsons Law.He is the owner of the blog and podcast Beyond The To Do List and shows us all how we are wasting so much time doing stuff that quite simply will not push us onto doing the great stuff that we have to do.

Yes, Facebook is fun. Twitter is useful. And Youtube is wildly entertaining.

But none of them should be used when they do not have a need to be used.

If they are keeping us away from what we should be doing, then stop it.

But how do we do that? How do we beat the addiction that checking our emails 50 times a day seems to have on all of us?

And how did he manage to walk boldly into an area that we all struggle with...is he a recovering addict?

Well lets find out and not waste anymore time, you see I'm being productive

Todays guest is a lady who quite simply is probably the fittest person that we have ever had on the show.

Just reading her bio exhausted me, but wow....she is packing a lot into her day.

As a professional golfer and fitness guru she believes that all of us have a responsibility to develop our fitness programmes into our daily worklife.

It doesn't matter if it means that we do it whilst commuting, walking the dog, or watching the latest edition of "Breaking Bad" she shows us the ways to do it.

By making informative, and slightly unusal videos that have gone viral on the web, she demonstrates that this isn't just a theory its actionable advice.

You can hang on a lamp post, swing on a door frame, or just push againt a wall whilst juggling your daily tasks...there is no excuse.

And this idea has really taken on, and now with numerous appearances on tv shows and other media, she is highly sought after to spread her message.

So did this focus on fitness and the teaching of it come naturally to her, or was she an overweight person who had the apithany to change?

Does she see a desire in the world to take on her advice, or are we all more interested in a night in with Netflix and a huge bag of Doritos?

Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show the creater of the smartest sexiest workout videos ever, the one and only Andia Winslow

Todays guest is a man who is simply brilliant at knowing how to build relationships in business.

Instead of doing what every other person does when they try to build connections, and valued connections, our guest knew that he had to step away from the crowd and do things a little differently.

He started his entrepreneurial life whilst attending Malone University, when he started selling world famous Cutco Cutlery.

And for him it was a job that he was good at, but it took a chance request by a father of a girl he was dating that exploded his success.

Her Dad asked if he could engrave his name on a knife, which took a standard knife and turned it into something more persoanable, different and valued by the recipient.

This one action showed him the power of giving value to building relationships. 

In five short years, he then went on to break nearly every sales record for Cutco distributors and landed himself in a different hall of fame – the Cutco Hall of Fame.

He did it all before graduating and is now Cutco’s No. 1 distributor of all time, out of over 1,000,000 distributors in the company’s 60 year history.

And with success breeds success and with the confidence achieved of doing things his own way, he then created as co-owner of Ruhlin Partners, a small private equity firm with interests in various companies (including Ruhlin Promotion Group).

He is the co-author of the best-selling book "Cutting Edge Sales", a husband, a father and is a sought after speaker on the topic of relationship development and strategic gift giving.

So had he planned to go this route when he started out, or did he have different dreams of what he wanted to achieve?

Did he have people around him that supported his efforts, or was it all down to himself?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr John Ruhlin.

Todays guest was destined to live a life of helping people since getting her first job as a nurse way back in 2008.I would guess that we can track this side of her character to an even earlier age too.As since entering the medical profession she has always had the drive not just to get the best out of people physically, by using normal medical means, but also by inspiring greatness with alternative medicine and positive reinforcement.And as we see time and time again, its the mental well-being that really pushes people through the gears, and helps them achieve the life that they deserve.And now as a firm believer and create of "The Magic Of Mojo" and "Bodacious Branding" she is taking this ability to interact, engage and inspire into the business word across the globe.So how did this lady grow up in Washington DC, but then end up obtaining a masters in Edinburgh Scotland?And what made her leave the medical profession and head into the corporate world?And are people surprised when during corporate presentations she suddenly bursts into song to entertain the audience?Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, The National Association of Professional Women’s Woman of the Year  the one and only Ariana Ayu.

Todays guest is a man who is an example of someone who took massive action and then kept adding to the momemtum created by that one act, to quite literally change their life forever.

A few years back in 2008, he made headlines across the world when he auctioned his entire life – car, home, job and friends – on eBay after his marriage collapsed six years after leaving the United Kingdom and setting up home in Australia.

He earnt £192,000 and instead of settling back into domestic life with the sudden windfall, he instead decided to set off on a path which must have been unthought of even a few months earlier.

He took the proceeds and made a fresh start, travelling the world armed with nothing but a list of life-goals.

Over 100 weeks he tackled 100 goals, which included meeting Sir Richard Branson,  running with bulls, cage diving with great white sharks, and even joining the Mile High Club.

And now after owning and living on his own island off the coast of Panama, and becoming a speaker, writer, adventurer and traveller his life seems a world away from his childhood in the North of England.

But is it?

Did he always have this adventurous spirit as a child?

And was his life just waiting for the right moment to find his unique and authentic calling?

Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Ian Usher.

Todays guest is someone who has been moving and shaking since entering the real estate world way back when he was just 22.

In fact by the time he was 27 he was living abroad fulltime and could claim to have sold properties in five countries.

Nothing like getting into the nitty gritty of business as soon as you can after all.

So if you want to find a condo in Columbia.

A Flat in France

Or even a pad in Bhagdad then he is your man.

Well that might be stretching it a bit, but he certainly is in the know when it comes to current methods of securing or selling a home abroad.

With a top rated podcast, sharing great interviews and insider tricks, and his booming online business, he lets you know the honest approach to the best ways to go about living abroad.

And that my faithful listeners is all I can tell you about him, as I found the man to be like Jason Bourne,  James Bond, or the invisible man, as I literally could not find anything about him online.

Not where he was born, grew up, favourite pastime, nothing.

He is an international man of mystery

So its a delight that I have lured him onto the show, not only find out more about his work and to of course join up dots, but to ask is your real name "Taylor White"

Todays guest is a man who has an amazing talent for finding the optimum way of building productivity into your life.

The go to resource for companies across the world who want to make themselves lean, save cash, and drive their profits ever skywards.

But it hasn't been plain sailing, as we see time and time again on Join Up Dots, as before becoming an entrepreneur, he continually set personal records at the speed that he would quit jobs.

It was rare that he stuck to anything, and it become apparent to him early that he hated  working for other people whom he didn’t truly admire or aspire to learn from.

And that's when he realized that his options were to either become an entrepreneur or become homeless.

So from his college dormitory he started building business, and the rest as we say is history.

So lets find out what this former college football player and pro fighter, thinks of his younger version when we send him back in time.

And what are his aims as he looks at the legacy he will leave on this world?

Big questions, and big answers, which means its time to bring onto the show to start joining up the dots of his life, the one and only Travis Steffen.

Todays guest is a lady who has developed something that is quite simply a wow.Have you ever been to the Doctors or Dentist and had to have an injection,and even though you look away the pain is still dreadful.Is it the anticipation of having a shot that hurts?Is it the thought of it? Or is it the actual needle entering the body that does the damage?Well,whatever it is, its without a doubt a fear that effects both children and adults.And after training as a paediatrician our guest realised, whilst seeing her children distressed, it was up to her to control the pain, in a harmless,friendly way.So she set to work and developed a multi faceted pain relief tool "Buzzy", which is taking the world by storm.So lets start discussing how Buzzy came about?Lets find out how many variations of the product have been developed on the way to this huge success.

careers and prospects,without us men getting involved,she is building a strong network across the globe too.Really helping ladies again, to create their own reality.So what made her step

away from her career with A&T,when so many people would have considered this a job for life?And why does she feel a need for a society to help women so passionately?And does she really

Todays guest is the author of the amazing new book "21 Ways to Invite Excellence into Your Life." Growing up in a farming family, she spent many hours shooting, hunting, riding motorcycles, and of course riding on horses and loved the freedom the outdoors.

It was a carefree existence, that fitted perfectly with our outgoing personality.But unfortunately all of her childhood was not so carefree, as she experienced a series of traumatic experiences capped by her mom’s diagnosis with breast cancer.

Blow after blow,  eroded her ability to trust and drove her to put up emotional walls she would struggle with for years.Existing behind those self-constructed barriers led to an unauthentic life, which made her make choices that were "safe" and made her live the life she sensed others wanted her to live.

This of course led to an unauthentic life of unhappiness and emotional and physical issues, which once again she battled with.

In 2010, her life seemed to fall apart both physically and emotionally.After having seen numerous doctors, even at the university level, she was told, "You’re not going to find what you’re looking for in mainstream medicine." So she went outside mainstream medicine and found a specialist who helped her find the root causes of her health problems.

Today she is 100% free of all prescription medications and the healthiest she has ever been.But that was just the start of her life, and as she has found once you find your authentic self, things start flowing in a different direction and with much more certainty of a great end product an amazing life.

So would she change those dark moments that she has experienced, or are they simply what makes her who she is today? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up the dots of her life, the one and only Jenny Hester.

At the end of each show you will hear me say the words "Please come back again when you have more dots to join up as I believe that by joining up those dots and connecting our pasts its the best way to build our futures".Well todays guest is doing just that, as they previously appeared way back in the first week of Join Up Dots, episode seven to be precise.He is a man who inspires me daily by his positive outlook, ability to overcome huge challenges and his desire to have an amazing life.As you will hear in todays episode its really the kind of life that we could all have, if we only are brave enough, make good financial decision’s and want it bad enough.Several years ago he was treading the  same path that the majority of us have trod over the years.Working long hours at the expense of seeing his children and family.Striving to build a business that ultimately didn’t fulfil him.And banishing the dreams that he had, to be a writer, he struggled on and on.Finally with a debt of over $100,000, overweight, over-stressed, and deeply unhappy he came to a crossroads in his life.He knew that he had to change direction and claim a life of his own.And that is where we left him at the end of episode seven, so if you want to feel the force of his full story, stop listening now and jump to the beginning.We will wait for you to get back.But if you are already inspired by what you have already heard, lets continue as we bring onto the show once more, to join up more dots, the one and only Mr Kimanzi Constable.

Todays guest was born in South Africa and spent her childhood enjoying the amazing wildlife of Africa.

So its a not a surprise really that her life has stayed close to nature, and since 2004 she has held the position of Director of the Wilderness Foundation, developing ways that we can link wilderness trails to peace and reconciliation.

But her connection with the foundation goes back a lot further to 1998.

She believes that the effects of protecting the wilderness is a great way of developing sound youth leadership built on environmental awareness and ethics, especially the youths that might be considered as at risk.

Take kids who might have lost their morals, focus or perhaps a belief that the world is a wonderful place, and get them to challenge their attention into protecting and establishing the world.

It seems to me a fantastic way to bring the lost souls back to us in a hugely positive way and is something we need more and more off across the globe.

But lets find out where she channels her efforts on a daily basis.

And whether this lady who is spending her time providing such value to the world, is content with her efforts, or like so many wonderfully caring people does she beat herself up that she isn't doing as much as she would want for the world?

And lastly I suppose could she imagine any other life, or was it destined from her very first days on the earth?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Jo Roberts.

Todays guest is a lady that from her base in California is focused on showing the world how to optimise their personal performance in whatever they do.

For over 25 years she has spoken to thousands of people across the globe who are seeking the skills to develop their strengths.

And that one word Strengths is the key to her beliefs, as like me, she feels that we all have the skills in us to have a kick ass life.

We all can be living a happier more fulfilled life, whilst functioning within our very own Sweet Spot

However instead of focusing on what we do well, and developing our lives and income around those things, we instead seem to spend much of our time focusing on our weaknesses.

Which is of course the key to much of the human way of living.

Focus in on the negatives and take for granted the good.

So how do we switch this way of thinking, and analyse and use the natural gifts we were given at birth?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Gloria Miele.

Todays guest is an amazing lady who has over the last few years become a real online mover and shaker, whilst playing the game on her own terms.

She has the hustle muscle working all over her body, and has over the last few years since leaving her hometown in New Zealand, taken such consistent action she is in a place that so many people would like to be in.

In fact she is in many places that people would like to be, as due to her drive she has become a travelling entrepreneurial powerhouse building a thriving online business, whilst on a mission to ensure 100,000 entrepreneurs create

freedom in business and adventure in life by 2020 too.

Literally living out of her suitcase for years on end, she has balanced this amazing ability to find stable wifi , whilst also finding adventure in every corner.

From becoming a world record holder at Dragon Boating, to body sculpting, to winning countless Online awards, it seems to me that everything she has achieved  is by having the guts to step out of her comfort zone on a daily basis.

She has taken on obstacles and challenges which were never guaranteed stepping stones to success, but still wanted more and more.

But as we see time and time again in our success stories, that ability to go into the "Scary Zone" is the best way to take you onto greater and greater levels of achievement.

So I am delighted to see her doing so well, and of course delighted to have her on the show.

So lets bring on to the show, to start joining up the dots of her life, the one and only "Suitcase Entrepreneur" Natalie Sisson.

Todays guest is an chap from the UK with an interesting story to tell.

In fact it seems to me his whole life is built around the use of stories, and weaving them into amazing effective ways that can help us all unlock the doors and remove the obstacles that we find infront of us time and time again.

Doors to a life that is as much play as work, and as much work as play.

Being in the music and film industry for over 18 years , he has developed an approach that works well for creative types across the globe who flock to his warehouse in Seven Kings London.

Its an unsual approach which for many might seem a bit strange....infact after reading his personal website, he seems to thrive by being, well, slightly out of the mainstream shall we say!

As he says

"People ask me what I do and I always hesitate – I was a psychotherapist for 13 years, then I tried calling myself a coach, I’ve been to India and trained in Tantra but that doesn’t quite qualify me to call myself a Guru and I’ve been buried alive and fasted in the wilderness for days on end but that doesn’t quite make me a Shaman… and Psycho-therapeutic Shamanic Coaching Guru is a real mouthful"

So lets find out what he calls himself today, as we bring onto the show to start joining up the dots of his life, the author of "Play from your f***ing heart" the one and only Jerry Hyde!

Todays guest is lady with a truly fascinating story.

Unlike many of the guests on Join Up Dots, who have become successful by business, online marketing or just doing amazing stuff, our guest set out on path that was never intended to lead to success and fame.

Infact it has been a hard push to get her on the show today.

But it is a story that should be told, as from her beginnings in Malta being educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart School, she has thrived when her passion for helping people has been used to maximum effect.

Training to be a nurse at Hull Royal Infirmary in the North of England her path seemed set.

But as we see time and time again, on Join Up Dots, something can occur which brings a persons life to the place that they can provide the most value to the world at the most unexpected times.

And that is the true definition of success.

And for our guest that was when a visit to Kagando Hospital which nestles in the beautiful hills of Uganda, 20km from the Congo Border.

She had found her home in one of the poorest countries on earth, providing support, love and care to the kind of people that have very little to offer back.

So what was it that made this remarkable lady, change direction and travel across he globe, to be with people that she had never met before?

Todays guest is a lady who is driven to help us all achieve the highest levels of performance that we can.

To get hold of the dream life that we see so many people living, and cant quite believe that we can have ourselves.

When she was 26 she founded a PR and marketing company called Wired PR.

She knew PR, and was good at marketing and content marketing so it was going to be a breeze to take these skills and weave them into a successful business.

However it wasn't as easy as just playing to her strengths, as the actual running and growing a business threw up challenges day after day, which meant a lot of risk taking, obstacle avoidance, and I guess pure faith was needed time and time again.

And that is what this show is about, showing all our listeners that nobody has the answers when they start.

Nobody knows that things are going to work out.

And nobody ever avoids making mistakes in their life, and for most of us they are huge mistakes.

So how has our guest managed to slip though this minefield and come out the other end, still looking her glamorous self, pushing her own success to higher levels, and with even more desire to help others? 

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show the host of the "Successlab podcast", the one and only Beth Cochran
