Todays guest entrepreneur, joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast is a man whose name came up in conversation on a previous episode of Join Up Dots.
And not in a "there's this man that I know", kind of way but like "Wow, there is this amazing man who is brilliant at what he does" kind of way.
And so I sought him out and I am delighted that he agreed to come on the show and start joining up his dots.
Hefirst found the motivation to begin working on building his careers, as a 14 year old, in his hometown Pittsburgh, when he was hired to do a community news column for "The Signal Item," a weekly newspaper.
And his life has been intertwined with both the written and spoken word ever since.
He received dual degrees in Journalism and Radio-TV-Motion Pictures at the University of North Carolina and also served as news editor and anchorman which meant that by the time he graduated from the University, he had already logged over 1,000 live television broadcasts.
And this all occurred before joining the military as still a young man, and tackling another big dot in his life, serving his country.
Although much happened in his life leading today, you can now find him tutoring speakers, in the nuances of voice control and speech writing, or presenting keynote presentations across America and enjoying himself.
He has found the freedom to create his path in his life that plays to his natural talents, and brings enjoyment to himself and everyone that he comes in contact with.
And that of course is the best way to build success in your life.
So what is it about being a wordsmith that appeals to him on a daily basis?
And is there a thrill to performing live that he doesn't get anywhere else in his life?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only expert wordsmith todays entrepreneur Lou Heckler
