Entrepreneur Success Stories By Join Up Dots, Motivation, Confidence, & Expert Business Coaching To Start Your Online Career (entrepreneurs)

Travel the world on $12 dollars a day? Dream or reality? Travel expert Will Hatton shows the way

Today’s guest joining us on Join Up Dots, is one of those guys that I love speaking to as when you first research them you think “They are a little bit mad” And then when you see them describe themselves as “An amateur adventurer, digital nomad and travel addict. I like to get muddy, naked and painted.” you think yeah wasn’t far wrong. But what makes this guy fascinating to me, is how very easily he could have been living the normal, humdrum lifestyle of so many of us if he had listened to the words of others. As he says in his own words “I first started backpacking when I was eighteen and was instantly hooked by all the inspiring people I met whilst hitching, camping and couch-surfing around Europe. Since then, I have lived in India for a year, worked on bars in Vietnam, herded goats in the Holy Land and conquered the highest navigable pass in the world armed with a poorly drawn map and a packet of ritz crackers. I have survived knife-point robberies in Nepal, guerrilla encounters in Myanmar, motorbike crashes in Vietnam and numerous other mis-adventures. In 2011, I came back to the UK and settled into a job (much to my parents delight!) working for a travel company; I hoped I had found my true calling! Sadly, I spent almost all of my time behind a desk and so I decided to throw it all in, start this blog, and hit the road. And now with thousands of followers actively consuming the tales of adventure and madness everyday, it seems to me that he has now found his true calling. So what was it about ritz crackers and the life on the open road that so appealed in the early days? And by surviving on just $12 dollars a day for over two years, has this been the key to totally immersing yourself into this thing called Planet Earth, that so many of us rarely truly see?

How Do You Make An Unsupportive Spouse An Ideal Business Partner?

In today's episode of Join Up Dots we look at what makes an unsupportive spouse one of your biggest flagbearers in your life. You see everyday we talk about starting your own business, but we never really talk about how it will effect the lives of those closest to you. And more often than not it will either financially or emotionally. So what can you do about it to ensure that things go the way that you want? Let's start with our first question, which was posed by email from a gentleman I love your show. I only recently got into podcasts. The interviews and information you provide are really helpful. I do have a suggestion for a show though. Unsupportive spouses. I come from a lower middle income family that has always done side gigs as a way to supplement their income. So entrepreneurship has pretty much always been in our blood. I've been freelancing software development services since 2007. In 2009, I immigrated to Australia without any family or friends and had to close down my business in my home country. I had a permanent position for about a year, when In 2010, I started my own business doing contracting and consulting again. It was a one man show and I did really well but I never made the leap to employ people as I just didn't have the experience or mentor-ship to take me to the next level and I didn't know where to get that support. Especially on how to get more clients. I also started an online store in a niche market and it was really doing well. Then in 2016, I hit a really rough patch. My wife were on paternity leave for about 6 months when my contract ended with a big bank. Unfortunately I didn’t have another client to go to as I was the one doing the contracting as a software engineer. For the next 6 months from June to December, my online store's sales had dried up and no matter how much money I threw at advertising or marketing, I wasn't able to get significant sales. I was unable to land any contracts and going over Christmas with no income was especially stressful. As you can imagine, this caused a lot of stress, fights and money flow problems and almost caused our relationship to fall apart. To add to this, my dad passed away in my home country and we had to fly over for the funeral. My credit cards were maxed out and I fell into depression. It was a really dark time. Then in January 2017, I got a short 6 month contract, but by then, my credibility as an entrepreneur had been crushed in my wife’s eyes and she pleaded with me to get a permanent position. So in June 2017, I landed a permanent position with a company. It's a very good company and I like what I do. It pays the bills, and more importantly, I'm able to pay back my spouse the money she lent me when I was in trouble, but it's not where my heart is. I have all these ideas, all these plans to be an entrepreneur. I want to start more online stores, learning from my mistakes and doing better. I want to create software products and services. I want to do so much more. The problem, however, is that every time I try to bring up the subject to start new online stores on the side, or to finally create that software service that I thought about, again, on the side, my wife just shoots it down and it becomes a shouting match about how I've not accomplished anything for the last 8 years, and that I had no work and no income for 6 months while she was on paternity leave. She also brings up that I'm in my 40's and starting a new business is better left for 20 year olds, how I still owe her money. I'm busy shutting down the online store as it's not bringing in enough sales. To be honest, I know I can't just quit my job at the moment and continue my business, however, I can do it on the side and build up a client base or at least start some online stores to bring in some money. I really need some advice on what to do. I really love my wife and child, and I don't want to disappoint them again. I also believe that working for someone will never make you rich or wealthy. I've tried including her into my plans, asking her for advice and all other advice they suggest on the net, but she still has no confidence in me. Joining with that question we also answered, one from a gentleman called Eugene in America who asked: Hi David. Saying hello from Seattle Washington. First off I just want you say I listen and enjoy your show practically everyday. Lots of great info and motivation. I have to ask though, in your case, if you didn't have that big 'motivational push' - your new manager- do you think you would have still left your job? Another point I'd like to mention is that I noticed a lot of people have a significant other to lean on once they decide to take the leap and quit there jobs. Was your wife working when you made that transition? A little about myself, I'm on the 'fence' right now. Working a 9 to 5 but also doing my passion, discovering the stories behind the people that make up the Pacific Northwest. www.whatsupnorthwest.net So if you have a question or need some support from Join Up Dots, then let us know and we will be happy to respond on a future episode of Join Up Dots.Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

Tapping Your Way To A Successful Business Is An Unusual Story For Sure

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is with a man who has built a very unusual business, after travelling a very unusual path. He is the author of the best-selling children’s book “The Wizard’s Wish,” the co-author of the best-seller “Freedom at Your Fingertips,” a featured expert in the film “The Tapping Solution” (along with Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Dr. Norman Shealy and Dr. Bruce Lipton), and has been heard internationally on a number of internet radio talk shows. He is an expert in tapping, which is something that I had never heard off until recently, but has many many followers and prctaioners around the world. Tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), is a powerful holistic healing technique that has been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias, emotional disorders, chronic pain, addiction, weight control, and limiting beliefs, just to name a few. Tapping therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. Tapping with the fingertips on specific meridian endpoints of the body, while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations, helps to calm the nervous system, rewire the brain to respond in healthier ways, and restore the body’s balance of energy. But this guy isn’t just about a history based around medical practices as intriguingly he is also a graduate of Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Clown College, where he was selected to be the emcee and a featured performer in the final show under the “Big Top.” :•) So how did a man go from this point to where he is today, helping people around the world overcome financial issues, heath issues and a wide range of symptoms? And is this something that was obvious to him, or did he fall into it like so many of our other guests who has appeared on the show? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Brad Yates. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Brad Yates such as: Brad shares how 95% of the things that bother us in life will lead to stress, which can be alleviated by practising the tapping technique he teaches. We discuss how he has created a global YouTube following simply by recording a video and then another until there are amazingly 700 plus to view. You have to start somewhere. He recalls how people saw the moment that he left his acting career as a step in the wrong direction. Not many supported him as he began work on his new venture and lastly…. We discuss the abundance that is found in the world today, which allows us all to create similar businesses whilst still creating amazing livings for ourselves. Nothing should stop us starting.Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

How To Make Real Estate The True Smart Passive Income

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who has created huge success for himself almost from the first chance that he could. As he says "I knew from an early age that punching time clocks and working for someone else wasn’t enough for me, which is what drove me into building businesses myself and being my own boss. Living a healthy and active lifestyle has always been important to me, that’s why at the ripe ol’ age of 21, I built my first company that coached clients on effective nutrition and fitness strategies. I began to grow my team and recruited and hired an epic sales team to keep things running smoothly. I ran a successful multi-million dollar company before I was old enough to rent a car. As soon as I realized how profitable real estate investments could be, I bought my first home as an investment. One home quickly became five, and when those five were doing really well, I just couldn’t help but add more. I became obsessed with learning everything that I could about the business. Before I knew it, I had over 50 investment properties that were all performing well and the steady flow of passive income was proof of that. I was passionate and incredibly excited to tell everyone I knew about everything I learned. Today, I dedicate my time to mentoring other entrepreneurs, building my real estate investment portfolio, and helping other investors to build a brighter future through the power of passive real estate income." And now with his colleague Jeff Schechter, he is running the High Return Real Estate programme where they teach their students how to gain high return real estate opportunities that are unavailable elsewhere.   The processes of acquisition, rehabbing, placement of tenants, and management are fully systemized to deliver properties that are well below market pricing, and perform at much higher returns than you could secure through traditional sources. Sounds good doesnt it....but is it? Is it something that falls into the category of passive income, or one where you are battling with terrible tenants and hassles you wouldnt want for anyone? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Jack Gibson Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Jack Gibson such as: Jack shares the reasons why he loves passive income strategies and why he develops these in every way that he can throughout his business. Why it is so important to find the skills sets in others that complement each other. You just cannot build a business on your own. Why Jack admits to struggling with "never being enough" in his business a why he keeps hi vacations to a week at a time. and lastly…. Why McDonald's became the biggest land owners in the world because they knew where the value of their business was...and it wasn't hamburgers.

Health Is Big Business And Todays Guest Has Taken His Ill Health And Created Massive Success

Today’s guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast interview is a man who has been through so much that you would think that a smile wouldn’t be permanently attached to his face. But attached it is, and it seems to be getting bigger everyday too. You see this is a guy who found his path to success, fulfilment and enjoyment in such a dark place that it is testament to the truth “The real gift is waiting within” As he says “For nearly two decades of my early life, there was always something wrong with me. I was dead tired and suffered from an avalanche of health problems. I endured all of this even though I was an athletic and supposedly fit young man. I tried to ignore it, tucking it all under a rug, but eventually there came a day when I decided enough was enough. And it was all because of this one fateful event… It was late one Wednesday night in the middle of March, a few days before my 17th birthday. I had just returned home from soccer practice, but I was even more of a mess than usual…” You see he had finally come to the acceptance that there was something wrong within, that not only would change his outward appearance dramatically, but also threaten his life dream of becoming professional footballer forever. He had found his biggest challenge, one that would take him to the brink, before he managed to step onto the first part of the path, that would lead him to where he is today. A New York Times best selling author and one of the most trusted health experts in the world, appearing on TV and radio across the world. So how did he beat the physical issues, when he also had to tackle the mental issues that made his teenage years so difficult too? And does he feel that this is 100% what he should be doing with his life, or is he simply waking towards the bigger path, waiting patiently for him? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Yuri Elkaim.Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

Extra Money Coming To You Whilst You Sleep Is A Real Dream. In Todays Episode We Show How Anyone Can Achieve Passive Income

In todays episode of Join Up Dots we spend time talking about why and if you should build a content based website. Over the last few years, people have become more and more fascinated with having the ability to create extra income for themselves on auto pilot. You go to sleep and wake up richer than you were before. And now with the internet ruling the world, even the smallest individual can dominate major corporations by building small laser targeted niche websites based around a single subject. Now this episode was inspired by a guy called Paul Gray, who dropped us a line into our Facebook Page asking the following question "Hi David, I've been listening to the podcast for the last few months and think it's great. Both inspirational and motivational. Just wanted to ask for any advice on starting a holiday website similar to yours. (Although not for Florida keys). Love the idea of the side income potential that, for the most part, would run itself once the initial work has been done. Keep up the great work with the podcast. Thank you, Paul." So we responded to him, and advised that we would record an episode detailing our thoughts on creating extra income in this way. Now as we say, it is reasonably easy to do something like this but it does take some planning. You dont want to start off on the wrong foot and spend your time creating a site, that although of interest to many people is a struggle to monetize. So start by thinking about, what people would pay for, and how easy is it to create a site around that thing? This is what I considered right at the very beginning of creating "Whats At Florida Keys" Would people pay to find out more information regarding this part of America? Well, no they want it for free, but they will pay to book a hotel room, or hire care, go scuba diving or a romantic meal or two. So can you find people that will be willing to pay you some kind of profit by passing leads through to their business? If you can then this is a great start to your desire to earn extra income for yourself - now you just have to go out and start building the site Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

Becoming A Coach An Travelling The World Could Be Your Dream Job, But How Can You Make It Happen?

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who is the type of guest that i love having on the show. She has gone through the journey of crap, anxiety and ultimately finding the thing that she was placed on this world to do and now is rocking it bigtime. She loves helping people change their lives, but not in a normal life coach type of way of “Lets get your head into the game and then life will be good” Instead as she says ” Im just a girl from the Midlands in the UK, an ordinary girl achieving extraordinary things. I believe every woman, regardless of background, experience or personality type can be financially free and in control of their life. I believe this because if I can, then anyone can! My mission is to help women all over the world to enhance their income, change their relationship with money and reach levels of success they never thought possible. I am committed to making YOU one of my many success stories! Now just three years ago, she wouldnt have been so positive as life was very different then As she says “Although I worked extremely hard in my career, I still got to the end of the month only to realise I had overspent and could nearly afford to pay my phone bill. I realised I was not equipped with the right mindset to stay motivated and make savvy financial choices, I also needed an education in how to make more money and invest my time and resources wisely. I have transitioned from a job into running my own business thinking that would solve my problems but I still didn’t know what steps I needed to take to create the life I really desired. I felt confused and anxious all of the time, the hard work and little results was killing my motivation. And then just over three years ago I had a major breakthrough. I discovered the world of self development and realised that for my whole life I had been studying the wrong thing. I had been working hard at trying to earn more instead trying to be more and think differently. I can now see that all of my financial struggle and mindset battles had a purpose – because now I know the difference between what works and what doesn’t when it comes to money, and I’m able to help you. And that is where we will bring her onto the show, by starting todays episode. So does she look back and think “I could have done this earlier” or did she need to go through the pain to be at the right point to make it happen? And where do people go wrong? Is it mindset or talent? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Michelle Stonhill Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Michelle Stonhill such as: Why life is very much about travel today, leading to Michelle revealing how all her decisions are taken to now place her in the position to travel with her business. Michelle shares the three P’s of business, and explains why the personal approach to business more often than not overlooked. Michelle shares how she struggles with what she calls “fog in her business”, and needs to separate herself from her work to gain the clarity that she needs. Michelle discusses how she creates two distinct avatars to base her whole business around. One that is the the person starting out and the second where they want to be. and lastly…. Why Michelle reflect on the two male influences in her life as in many ways holding back from the future that is now hers to savour.

So many people want to become an entrepreneur but where do you start?

Well my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a uk guy who knows more than most what it takes to get something off the ground, and become a success. He author of the book series, The Law Of Business, a book series highlighting the skills needed to make a business successful, whilst also running a podcast of the same name. But why I wanted to have him on the show was to highlight the guys at all levels of building their dream businesses. As he says "My entrepreneur story started when I went to an event in oxford circus hosted by an American singer called Napoleon, an affiliate of Tupac Shakur." And that start is more than good enough to think....these are dots that need to be joined up. Anyway, he was was telling us his story and all the things he did etc, at the end of the event I started thinking, this man is not much older than me and he has done so much with his life. It was wake up time, and that's when I said I need to achieve something big in life, to free myself from the supermarket life i was living at the time.  I went home and while on my bed I was thinking of the things I could do, I said to myself, I can't be a doctor, I can't be a football player, then Bill Gates came on my mind, and that's when I wanted to be an entrepreneur or inventor.   And that's when my journey begun. That free event completely changed my mindset and I haven't gone back to the employee and average living mindset ever since, I always think big now.   In 2011 I had a language learning website called "Foreigntalk" but i took that down in 2012 because i knew nothing about marketing and sales, I was getting members but didn't know how to monetize from it.    I got into internet marketing by first doing network marketing than I worked on some advertising websites, then I started my own ad website and now I am working on the law of business, my book series and making online courses about business and personal development as well.    So this is going to be such an interesting story, as it touches on so many areas that trip others up as they work on the life they want.   So why is it that people manage to create a traffic source, but then fail to monetize it?   Is it that they create a business that doesn't solve others problems, or actually creates more problems for themselves?   Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Jamil Jama. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Jamil Jama such as: How Jamil is never happy re the amount of work that he gets done, and often gets told by his friends to calm down and look after is health Jamil shares how he has developed his time management system, to ensure he gets masses done every single day. This is something we can all use. We talk about Meetup.com and how useful it is to surround yourself with like minded individuals who understand what you are going through in life. and lastly…. Jamil talks openly about his belief in self development, and why its the stories he hears that make such a huge difference to his life.Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

Funnels In Business Are Boomtime, And Todays Guest Is A Click Funnels Expert

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who rise to the top has been nothing short of remarkable. He went from a full-time insurance agent 4 years ago to building an e-commerce business that sold $20 million of physical products in 2016. What is astonishing is he did this WITHOUT using Amazon, eBay, or Shopify, and with nothing more than simple two-page ClickFunnels websites that use carefully optimized sales funnels. If you think that entrepreneurs are born more than made you could well be right. Our guest got his start in entrepreneurship with a pool cleaning business at 16, and has done everything from selling tea, to selling hundreds of thousands of dollars of t-shirts on Teespring, and to now selling 10,000 units per month across 20 different physical product lines. Today, he has built up an email list of 1.1 million subscribers and 300,000 buyers, and is selling the largest volume out of 50,000 ClickFunnels users. In addition to his eight-figure business selling physical products, his passion is helping and mentoring others to have the same success in e-commerce that he has had. But of course you need to have a direction right at the beginning, and then overcome the heartaches, stumbles and falls that knock so many people away from success like this. So was he just extremely lucky and didn't have any of these? Or is he a guy that believes that persistence overcomes luck and talent everyday of the week? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Trey Lewellen Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Trey Lewellen such as: Try shares a story of his early struggles, and reveals how he would have loved to be able to have reached out and found a mentor way before he found the man for him. Trey shares a powerful story of how the value of money has never changed for him, even when he earnt £117,000 he still appreciated what it took for the normal man to earn similar. Why flying across the world is so inspiring to Trey, as it brings into focus the complete abundance that we all have on offer to us everyday. and lastly…. Why people feel secure in the job that they do, even though they could lose it the next day. This is madness, and a side hustle should be on everyones schedule for protection.Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom

Mistakes Lead To Business Success, If You Are Only Willing To Make Those Mistakes

In todays episode David Ralph the host of Join Up Dots will answer some questions sent in from listeners across the world. Some are quite deep whilst others are light and fun, but all of them in one way or another are tackling the subject of mistakes and being willing to tackle them head on.

David, thank you so much for the show. I love it. Do you ever wish that you had started a different business, as I think at my core I am frightened of starting something in case I make a mistake and end up hating it. - Michaela Matthews, Toulouse, France Hello to all at Join Up Dots, i recently heard an episode where you answered listeners questions so I thought I would try to get one answered myself. I hate my life and for the longest time have felt in total despair that nothing good is ever going to happen to me. But after listening to many of your shows I am starting to change the way I think about the darkness. Both you and your guests have spoken about the bad times being the good times in the end. I think I can see that is true. So how can I make this small change in the way I think bigger and bigger, as its the key I feel - Peter Druboivs, Pula, Croatia Hello David, my question is about that clip that you play when Oprah speaks about "Doing The Right Next Thing". If I am getting this right, she says be quiet, listen to your thoughts and then go and conquer. Surely if it is that easy then everyone would be a success. Thoughts? - Damion Dansey, Ontario Canada, And now if you have been following along with the show, you will have head me mention numerous times about a lovely lady who is connecting with the show called Derek. We call her Derek. so that her bosses, if they happen to listen to the show, wont know its her. Yeah, i know we do too much. However Derek is in the process of reading self development, listening to podcasts, and planning how she can create a business that rocks, whilst at the same time supporting her partner and her lifestyle and she is a bit lost as to how to proceed. Now there isn't anyway that she can just go crazy and do the leap of faith, so a strategic plan is needed to allow her to side hustle her way to earning additional income and growing that confidence. Business is nothing more than, finding something you can do amazingly well, and that others need and will pay for....and then getting them to know about it after all. Well this week, Derek posted in the FB group a statement of success that made me sit and up and take notice. She advised us "What’s crazy is less than a year ago I started a band - I had zero idea what I was doing. None whatsoever. I just know that I can sing and I started networking and contacting people I had no business contacting being a brand new band and we started making decent headway. I’m floored by the success we’ve seen with the minimal effort I’ve put into it. Why I doubt myself in other arenas is beyond me" Isn't that amazing...she has already created success, by doing all the right things already. Now its time for her to replicate that format to gain more success again. Music, Online expert, Love Life, Entrepreneurs, Dream Jobs, Online Courses, Persistence, Personal Trainer, Decision Making, Publicity, Young Entrepreneur, Freedom, Addicted, Shawn Stevenson, American Hustle, Make Money Online, Motivational Quotes, Expedition, Challenges, Steve Jobs, How To Start A Business, The Secret, Rich, Online Marketing, Time Management, Blogger, Videos, Recruiting, Authentic, Travel Blogs, Ultra Running, American Football, How To Make Money, Online Business, Company Culture, Law Of Attraction, Planet Money, Jobs, Video Marketing, Linkedin, Success Principles, Digital Marketing, Action Taking, Starting A Business, Successful Entrepreneurs, Personal Branding, Amazon, Lead Generation, Career Change, Life Planner, Comfort zone, Simplicity, Break The Rules, Book Launches, Personal Finance, Secret To Success, Business Plan, Health And Fitness, Tech Startup, Self Publishing, Entrepreneurs, Love, Career Path, Educational, Creativity, Selling, motivation, motivational, inspiration, confidence, success, freedom
