Todays guest is the go to expert if you have a desire to place your words onto paper and become a published author
He is an author, journalist and publisher, and his book 'Turning your knowledge into income' shares his philosophy that we all spend a lifetime making payments into our 'bank of knowledge' but end up with a dormant account because we don't make a withdrawal.
He believes that, right now, there is somebody, somewhere that would pay good money to know what you know.
All you need to do is to package up your knowledge in a form that they can buy it.
For people who want to raise their profile in their marketplace or who want to position themselves as an expert in their field, there is nothing like a properly published book to do that.
Fifteen years founded Filament Publishing Ltd fifteen years ago with the mission to help authors, not just to write and publish their book, but also to build a successful business around it.
But there is so much more to this man than what you heard so far, so without further ado its with great delight that we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Christopher Day.

Todays guest on Join Up Dots is a man who seems to have cracked it big-time, and knows exactly what he was put on this planet to do.
And his mission is to make us the healthiest version of what we can be and live an amazing life everyday
But unlike so many of our guests who have a childhood that was less than perfect, his life started in a very different way.
As he says in his own words “I spent the first half of my childhood in a quiet suburban neighbourhood with all of the love and attention that a child could ask for.
I spent the second half of my childhood growing up in some of the most dangerous parts of the inner city, surrounded by gangs, drugs, alcohol, and violence on a daily basis.
I was able to gain so much from both environments, and I’m truly grateful for the life I’ve been given. The situations I was in helped me cultivate perspective, resourcefulness, and (most importantly) the power of choice.
However, it was in college that my entire world really changed. Not because of the education I was receiving, but because of the devastating illness that I was diagnosed with at the age of 20. Seemingly overnight I was in excruciating pain, I lost a great deal of function in my leg, and I could barely get from room to room in my house, let alone get around on campus anymore.
Essentially, my spine was deteriorating far faster than it was supposed to. And according to my doctor at the time, I had the spine of an 80-year old person, even though I was just a young college kid.”
And that was just the start of what would become life mission. Starting with getting himself healthy, he learnt so much that he could then share with the world.
And now being the founder of Advanced Integrative Health Alliance, a successful company that provides Wellness Services for both individuals and organizations worldwide, podcast host, and a dynamic keynote speaker life seems good…in fact very good.
So does he see people struggle in life as they haven’t had the good and the bad, so aren’t aware of what they can deal with?
And would he like to go back in time and change anything that has occurred whilst on this earth?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Shawn Stevenson
