Join Up Dots Podcast (Entrepreneurs)

Todays guest is a man who for over twenty years has remained a trusted advisor to brands and personalities on marketing, positioning and business growth, with special expertise in health and personal development.

During his career, he has directed some of the largest campaigns ever executed, with several acquiring in excess of 250,000 new paid customers.

He knows the words to use, and the stance to take if you wish to separate yourself from the masses and give yourself the best possible chance to find the success that you deserve.

Finding the thing that well as we say everyday makes you authentic and much more appealing to everyone

But according to him before you even think about expanding your universe, you need to fully understand what your market is and how your product fits into it.

You need to dig down before you push out and conquer the world.

But that is understandable if you are a business, but how does he create a path of success for individuals and personalities?

What questions are needed to be asked to give yourself the best chance of success, especially when starting a new business or developing a new idea?

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

Todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free business podcast was for many years one of the key leaders for the Money Advice man Dave Ramsey.

Working closely with Dave, he helped over see a wide range of content and promotional activities not least the Total Money Makeover Live shows, which in many ways were more like arranging a concert than a conference.

Thousands of people would flock to these to gain an insight into how they can make the most of their cash, earn more money, and solve those worrying financial leaks.

Showcasing his own personal business talents and experiences, this amazing entrepreneur has since gone into business on his own and taken all those learnings, and sprinkled them with his own personal beliefs and strategies.

Helping businesses, entrepreneurs, and solopreneur take the next step in their development through Business Coaching, Strategic Planning and LifePlan events he helps his clients see the things that are holding them back from a better life.

He shows them the way to build careers around success practices that work.

And for many these may not be things within the business world, but instead in their personal lives.

So how does he know how to ask the right questions, and find answers where others wouldn't think of looking?

And does he look back on his time with Mr Ramsey with total fondness, or are their things that he wishes that he could have done differently now he has branched out on his own.

And has he ever asked questions of his client and thought "Do you know I think I have that same issue myself?"

It's amazing the kind of business folk that I get to talk to on the Steve Jobs inspired top rated career advice podcast, who is doing things there own way.

If you think of an expert in Google +, who knows more about the product than it seems Google do themselves you would probably think of a teckie guy, mad hair, glasses...you get the idea.

You wouldn't think of someone that loves writing comedy with a psychological twist, and likes nothing more than jumping up on stage and wowing the crowds with a few well placed rib ticklers.

Even studying at the San Francisco Comedy College for six months to fine tune his craft.

But this is a guy who has built his own job that works.

He has built a career that is full of motivation and fun, and I guess that is the perfect job.

Well that is the type of guy that we have on the show today, who started his life in Wales, and now fly's around the world supporting his clients, who in the main fail to grasp the power of Google+

He teaches the processes that make this platform potentially the most under utilised area of the web today.

He uses his studies in psychology to create a blueprint for us to follow to understand how organisations like Google use psychology and how we...the internet uses don't, but should.

He is a man who Guy Kawasaki states is "one of the most clever and hard working people you'll find."

So where does he believe his true talents lie?

Being an engaging and informative public speaker, executive coach, business consultant and marketing psychologist, standup comedian or windsurfing trainer.

Yep, you didn't see that last one coming did you!

Well lets find out, as its with great delight that I get to bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Martin Shervington.

Todays guest solopreneur is building a career that 100% percent is built on her own personal passion.

She is lady who literally screams "Don't judge a book by its cover" and well, as a man I have to say that its a very nice cover indeed.

She is a lady who promotes healthy living, leading to weight loss and wellbeing.

She believes that its not a good way to live to follow the latest fad in the dieting world, and from her online platform SKfitlife shows the world how to follow her lead.

She looks amazing. Feels amazing. And has an amazing life that inspires.

Todays guest has been on amazing journey of self-discovery herself to be able to find her place in life.

To be able to find her unique authentic self that she was born to show to the world.

Growing up in a small log house in Missouri as a child, money was tight.

With issues being prevalent in her life, such as the effects of addiction, especially alcoholism, abusive relationships, the divorce of her parents, high weight gain, and other hardship it wasn't an easy upbringing.

It wasn't just money where the struggles were.

Life was a struggle throughout.

But holding it all together was her belief in herself, and an ability to out hustle everybody else.

She had a work ethic, that allowed her to overcome the hardest of situations even working three jobs at one time.

She says it's the journey that is the main thing in life. I pushed through everything, and learned so much about myself, and I learned how the human spirit can go far beyond its perceived limits when failure is not an option."

But where did this kind of spirit that is lacking in so many people come from and flourish when against adversity?

And does she wish she could go back in time and speak to her younger self warning against instant success?

Todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Steve Jobs really makes me love hosting a show like Join Up Dots, as in his own way he is part of my story....my dots.

When I started getting the podcast research together and reading about him, I thought "Wow, I know this man already. I have been telling his story to friends and colleagues for the last few years....he was one of my inspirations"

He is a man who broke his career down, and went against all the rules, when he found himself at a crossroads in life.

He had followed the path most expected, getting a good job, earning great money, and living a life that spelt Success with a capital S.

But just when things couldn't get any better, and a big promotion was on the cards he turned full circle and went in a direction that is 100% him.

 He took the first steps to finding his unique self.

He went in search of his own personal freedom.

And the rest as they say is history.

As he travels around the world with his wife, he applies his great philosophy to life, which also forms the name of his website “the Pursuit of Everything.”

He tries to live his life with intention, do work that truly matters, devote time working on projects that benefit those less fortunate than himself, and to give more than he gets.

If anyone was born to appear on a show like Join Up Dots then its this man, so lets start Joining up the dots with the one and only AJ Leon.

Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview is an entrepreneur from New York with a difference.

Mr Scott Wiener is businessman, entrepreneur and a connoisseur of something that most of us order, make, and then simply shove into our mouths as quickly as we can.

Yes, he is an expert on the integral food source known as Pizza.

Growing up in New York City, it was very hard not to at least every now and again, end up holding a dangling piece of melted cheese and pepperoni above your mouth, whilst reaching for the next piece eagerly.

And our guest loved pizza more than most...and that was it.

He didn't feel that his life and certainly his jobsearch to find his perfect career would be linked with this Italian favourite, he just liked eating it.

But upon leaving familiar territory for college at Syracuse University, he began to realize that the way pizza was made in other areas was very much different to what he was used to.

What made the slices that he was eating at college so very different to the ones he had grown up eating?

 Touring the country with rock bands throughout those college years provided perfect opportunities for research.

But yet still, he was on a path that was common place....get a job, lose a job, get another job and feel uninspired all the time.

Yep, we have all been there.

But it was in that moment of searching for the thing that made him come alive as a departure from his life, whenever possible he gathered some friends for pizza day-trips.

Four people in a car eating a slice at each stop until stomachs were full. 

It was fun, enjoyable and he could share the knowledge that he had built up about this cheesy delight.

The only problem was that his car wasn’t big enough to fit everyone who wanted to go, so he rented a bus for a massive birthday party and invited 26 friends and family members for a day of pizza adventuring.

Six months later, he used that very model to launch Scottês Pizza Tours.

And now nearly six years later, 1,500 tours, over 25,000 tour guests later, and an entry into the Guinness Book Of World Records he can lay back with a full stomach and say yes I am where I should be in life.

So does he ever have days when he thinks "I can't face another slice of this stuff ever again?"

And does he now have the recipe for the worlds most perfect pizza that he can share with us all?

Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast, with the one and only entrepreneur and food expert Mr Scott Wiener.

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots is a man who contacted me to see if I would be interested in his story enough to have on the show.....are you kidding me?

This guy has so many dots in his life, he is almost three quarters Dalmatian.

He is the owner and founder of  the great success Plum Deluxe, whose mission statement is to help us all live a life we love by making time every day for great moments.

It was founded in 2007 as an online community to encourage individuals across the world to create special moments that matter with friends and families.

It could be hosting a dinner party, going to a yoga class, treating themselves to a spa day with a friend, or just optimizing their daily routines to include more self care. 

Doing the stuff that we put on the backburner because we are so busy.

"I would to go on a date with you sweetheart, but I have these spreadsheets to go through"....sound familiar?

With so many positive life affirming platforms brought to the world, having an element of tragedy behind it, Plum Deluxe is the same.

Our guest started this company to share the lessons he learned from his mother, who lost her 6 year battle with cancer.

Of course a huge tragedy, but the manner of he farewell was nothing but inspirational

She spent the time from diagnosis to saying goodbye, making sure that she did the things that she loved.

Traveling more, seeing friends, laughing, and being the most positive individual that she could be. She made sure that she was not going to waste a second

So why do we do this people? And I am the same too.

Why do we do things that keep us away from living the life that we want?

 Even if its just taking a break to go for a walk in the fresh air for an hour or so?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, with the one and only precious moments entrepreneur Mr Andy Hayes

Todays guest entrepreneur chatting to us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast Join Up Dots is a lady that states on her about page before anything else that she has a love for chocolate.

She also loves country music too.

So I bet a perfect night in is a bubble bath, a box of chockies and a cd full of stories of divorce, dead dogs, and other depressing stories sung with a twang.

But that isn't what this show is going to be about, as todays guest has a fascinating title which I don't understand.

She calls herself a "time strategy visionary" which we will of course find out about during the show.

But what is true about her is that she knew in her heart of hearts that shat she didn't fit  into a traditional job, as the love of the tasks she was asked to do was quite often restricted.

She loved what she was doing, but not the pressure that came with doing it in a certain time.

Why should we compress something into a set time fame, just because someone somewhere says that we have to.

But that doesn't mean that she isn't organised, as she loves schedules, hectic days, and sports and so became an Athletic Administrator for a high school.

However, she found that she struggled to balance the 60 hour work weeks with her need for self-care and family time.

And that is where she started to realize her path, and brings her onto the show today

She believes the “I’m so busy” feeling doesn’t have to be a way of life.  She is a master at cutting to the heart of overwhelm to help you regain control of your schedule and experience life.

She became a time strategy visionary.

So why is it that we all like to use the "I'm ssoooo busy, and rushed off my feet" badge of honour, even if it goes against our health?

And why do we focus our energies so much on the things that wont ultimately bring us closer to the finishing line?

Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only super entrepreneur herself Lisa Mallis

Todays guest entrepreneur speaking to us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast, is a man who from his home in the town of Thunder Bay Ontario Canada, has set about living the life that lights him up inside. He admits to never having felt really settled in life, and at his core has always had the desire to go against the norm and do things his own way.

And certainly at the moment, he is flourishing within that mind-set, as he is busy creating both the time freedom that we all want in our life, and a series of online ventures that can give him the aforementioned freedom.

For most people family comes before everything, they are the reason that we are here. But also for most people we see less of our families than anything else as we set about building the income and providing the support that they need...yep work gets in the way of everything.

This is not a career man as such, as he likes nothing more than spending time with his daughter and wife, and so in just two years has grown his current online business, from $0 to $490k in annual revenue, This is a fully digital business, in a tiny market, with average sales of just less than $27 per transaction.

He starts, runs, and grows online businesses and can help us all do the same.

But in life all paths and ventures that seem that the guest was destined for, actually took many years for them to find  and he was no exception.

He spent his earlier years travelling coast-to-coast across Canada playing drums in several punk rock bands.

Although not a punk in fashion, he has never let go of the D.I.Y. ethic that taught him: if you want something to change, you have to do it, get it done, or stop complaining about it.

See that free spirit again, can never be denied when it is who we are.

His latest creation is called VelocityPage, a Premium WordPress plugin that allows anyone to create beautiful web pages in minutes — without code.

He is also the host of the hit podcast Hack The Entrepreneur.

So what is it about him that had always felt unsettled?

And what advice can he give all of us as we look to find the thing that makes us bound out of bed each morning and never have to see our boss's face again?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only career driven freedom expert Jon Nastor

To hear more from Jon Nastor go to:

Podcast: Hack The Entrepreneur with Jon Nastor

Description: Hack The Entrepreneur reveals the fears, habits, and inner-battles behind big name entrepreneurs and those on the path to success. It is a show created for you the entrepreneur, small business owner, or startup founder. 'Entrepreneur hacking' can be any trick, shortcut, skill, or method that allows anyone to crush it in business and in life. In other words, it is anything that solves a problem entrepreneurs have in an inspired, ingenious way. We know that everyone is unique and that they have to find their own path to success, but after personally speaking to entrepreneurs every day as part of my own successful online business, I became obsessed with the idea of finding the ‘replicable’ things successful people do, to try to find the patterns. Not so you can copy them, but instead absorb it into what you do everyday, so you can make your own success and one day help others ‘Hack the Entrepreneur’ too. Whether you are looking for success with blogging, social media, passive income, YouTube, search engine optimization, startups, affiliate marketing, outsourcing, overcoming fears, doubts, or building your own business on your terms, Hack the Entrepreneur can and will help you.

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired business podcast Join Up Dots, is a man who is a professor in physical geography. He graduated from Bristol University with a degree in Physics in 1983 and went on to complete a Ph.D at the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, in glaciology and remote sensing.

He then spent eight years in the Department of Space and Climate Physics, University College London before returning to Bristol in 1996.

So we can say that he is more than a bit clever to say the least.

But if you think that todays show is simply about a supremely educated man who is living a life without struggle then think again, as a few years back he was in a position that is nothing short of horrific.

After a mountaineering accident, our guest found himself laying for days on a tiny shelf high above the safety of the ground, with his leg literally hanging on by a thread
A rock that bounced down the mountain and ricocheted off a ledge, had crushed his lower leg halfway between ankle and knee. The impact sheared through both bones and removed a big chunk of his leg.

For days he lay and watched it loosely flap around, afraid it might just drop off. Powerless to stop gangrene set in, and all the while his leg moving closer and closer to being lost forever.

And if that is where you might think his story finishes then think again, as with so many tales on Join Up Dots, the worst moments in someone's life can actually be the starting point to career success. Allowing something remarkable to be born, and that is certainly the case today.

So lets bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only entrepreneur and scientist Mr Jonathan Bamber.

Todays guest is Ani Alexander, someone that I am proud to say has become one of my closest friends in the world.

I have never met her, don't know too much about her personal life, but can honestly say she has become one of the people that has helped me so much as Join Up Dots keeps on growing.

She has a fascinating story, which starts by being born in a country that now is no longer there, the soviet union, and as teenager loved to write.

And these have all lead her to be the host of two podcasts "Ani Alexander's Brand Architect" and "Write 2B Read"

In her heart she believes that everyone has a story to tell, and would like nothing more than putting pen to paper and getting creative as a child.

But as we see time and time again, the thing that we liked as kids somehow got forgotten as we grow into adulthood.

And instead of thinking "Lets make a career out of something that I love doing"...which of course is the sensible thing to do, she instead went into the corporate world.

And joined the masses.

Yes, for the next twelve years she followed a path that left her with a paycheck every month, but nothing more. She was lost and definitely feeling uninspired.

So she took the leap of faith and went for it on her own

And now with her business flourishing, her network of aspiring authors flocking to help her get them in the bestsellers list, life is getting better everyday.

She is also the author of three books "Emotional Moments", "Dream Down" and  "Highfall"

But if this sounds like an easy transition then think again.

I know her well, and I know the hustle and work ethic that it is taking to get to the point she wants to be.

She is climbing up the ladder of success everyday, one rung at a time even when exhausted, even when she was  unsure she could climb any higher?

So how does she keep herself going when sometimes the world seems against her?

And why did she feel along with everything else on her plate, she would go and conquer the world by recording the Write 2 b Read podcasts in English, not her natural tonque

Well lets find out as we bring on to the show to start joining up dots the one and only Ani Alexander

Todays guest for the milestone 200th episode is the only man that I wanted for the job......in fact I held back from recording this show so he could appear.

And why did I feel that way?

Well after 199 episodes of Join Up Dots, hopefully you will feel like I do that they are motivational, inspiring, challenging and the kind of content that makes you believe that everything is possible.

But if this is the first show that you have listened to then...believe me, just hearing about this guys story will leave you feeling exactly the same way.

When he was a young man at ages 13 and 16 he received news that would knock most people off their feet.

He had cancer and not just one type but two completely different types, which left him listening to his last rights and waiting to die.

He was given only fourteen days grace, but instead of passing on as expected he astounded the medical community when he survived both these brutal diseases and also  a medically-induced coma for a year.

This courage to beat the odds and take on a challenge that many deemed as impossible left him with the realisation that no challenge would ever be too great or any peak too high.

He proved this theory when he crested the peak of the highest point in the world (Mount Everest) with only partial use of his lungs.

As the first cancer survivor to do so, he then decided to continue climbing and has since topped the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia, Antarctica, and North America.

But this isn't a story about a man with super human strength or support, this is a story of total belief in himself and what he can achieve.

Inspiring us all to dream bigger and go for the impossible.

He is voted one of the top eight most inspirational people of all time, so it with great delight to bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Sean Swarner

Todays guest is a man who has a harrowing story, but it is a story that you think "Man that is terrible, but wow he has turned this into a positive. Bigtime"

And as we see time and time again on Join Up Dots, our guest will find their path in life due to a situation that you wouldn't wish on anyone. But they move from the dark place into the light by perseverance, love, understanding and curiosity.

Back in 1989, he has a phone call that changed his life.

He had been advised that his sister had been raped. What could he do to help? What could he do to support his sister?

Well for two years, he struggled to deal with the rape and the effect it had on his life – both as the brother of a rape victim and as a male.  He transferred colleges – so he could be close to home and his sister during the trial. 

And once back home with his family, he saw the pain, rage and sadness his parents, relatives, and family friends were also going through.  The sexual assault of his sister had changed many people’s lives.

And it was with this dawning realisation that an assault like this was as much based on lack of understanding of what is the correct way to conduct yourself with someone else, as it was a crime.

It was the worlds lack of understanding, of the other personal right of personal standards that was the problem.

Could he change the mind-set of youngster, adults and anyone with a sexual urge to realise that there was a way of interacting with each other that wasn't happening.

And over ten years, he worked, talked, discussed, reviewed and developed the "Can I Kiss You" platform, where he uses humour to break down the barriers of this taboo subject.

And now he travels the world bringing his message to the world.

As he says ""I do feel the work is a calling. The traveling does not get tiring because I know I'm going somewhere to get the opportunity to open minds and inspire a new way of thinking.  I get the wonderful honor and opportunity to plant the seed for them to take care of and nourish."

He is an author, speaker, father of four and husband to his beloved wife, and now here ready to join up his dots, so its with great pleasure that I bring onto the show the one and only Mike Domitriz

Todays guest is the queen of Ka-ching!, a lady who literally knows how to change the mindset of all of us to become profit attracting experts

Her motto is “You can't grow your business without growing yourself.”

She advises business owners on how to translate their technical expertise into sustainable growth profits.

But it's not just about businesses, as she is also the go to resource for solopreneurs too.

Those guys and ladies looking to build a lifestyle built around their income production.

And is that experience to relate to all walks of life that has changed her life completely, since taking the Leap of faith and going alone.

She is an author and advisor on the topic of attracting high-paying clients and growing your business revenues with integrity.

Along with her book - Wealthy U- Seven Sacred Wealth & Wisdom Lessons - her sales and marketing tools have been used for 20 years to dramatically improve the lives of everyone she speaks to.

But the interesting thing about her, is although she can teach us all how to increase the wealth coming our way, she also had those same self-limiting thoughts that we all have.

Money should be hard to earn.

Rich people are greedy. 

And to get rich you have to get dirty, and do things that aren't congruent with our own morals.

She had to battle through and realise in her heart of hearts that this wasn't true.

So how did she change these negative ideas that were so deeply rooted within her?

And how did she take the talents that she was demonstrating daily in her corporate life and bring it all together to form her own her company?

Well let's find out, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Marilyn August.

Todays guest is a man with a fascinating tale, of hardship, persecution, and a burning desire to create the best life he could hope for.

Raised in a small fishing village in Senegal, West Africa, as a child he endured abuse, profound humiliation and the breakup of his parents at the tender age of two

This is of course is not what any child hopes for, and he found it particularly hard to accept as he looked around at his friends who all seemed to have the family life that he would have wanted.

Then later at age five he was taken to live in a compound of more than 100 people, living in extreme close proximity to each other.

It was here where he quickly learned to defend himself, and to develop the inner power that he needed to flourish in this unstable environment, where so many people fought for survival on a daily basis.

It was a hard, brutal start to his life, but one that he wouldn't allow to determine his future.

He knew that he wanted a life in America, and so at the age of 21, with just a few belongs and a gallon of water, he left Senegal, and amazingly managed to walk across the Sahara desert by foot between Algeria and Libya in six arduous days.

He had his dream and he wouldn't give up on it.

Well he did it, and even now many years after setting foot on the continent he is pushing himself to greater and greater achievements.

He is the author of "No Excuses, how to pursue a better life and lift others for a better world", and his "Mile High Momentum" training platform, he is about as far away from his beginning as it possible.

But what was it about the American dream that filled him with such hope from his life in Africa?

And when he started that walk across the desert did he truly believe that he would be where he is today?

Our guest today lives his life by two rules.

And these are two rules that by and large most people will try to keep away from, and then they wonder why they haven’t got their dream life.

He believes that

You can’t be afraid to take a risk.

You absolutely MUST have a plan.

And then if you know anything about him, he adds to the mix a huge belief in himself, a flexing hustle muscle that he demonstrates everyday, and an easy going nature that helps him reach out to the movers and shakers across the globe.

As a young man, he had a burning passion to become a professional paintballer, and upon getting his first gun from his parents set out to achieve his aim. 

And it seems that what he wants to do, he makes sure that he does its as within four years he had travelled the world shooting capsules of paint at people winning $300,000 dollars in the process.

Even gaining the top prize of $160,000 in just one weekend.

But at his core burned a question. A question that had occurred to him several years earlier, and had remain within him. Gnawing away.

He asked himself  “If people can come from nothing and create insane amounts of wealth in one lifetime, then shouldn’t someone like myself coming from a middle class family who has the support from their family and lives in “The Land of Opportunity” be able to easily do the same thing?”

Wow, for a fourteen year old kid that shows awareness beyond his years.

He realised at any early age that comfort creates mediocrity, and pain motives change.

And now after investing over $500,000 of his own money on self development, and spending time with the likes of Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield and even Arnold Schwarzenegger he is taking those personal skills and sharing them with the world with his Peak Performance Club.

But how does someone at the age of 14 start thinking in such an advanced way, especially when it appears he didn’t have anything to force him to think that way?

And where does he find the greatest need within the people that he coaches and inspires across the world?

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

Todays guest is a man whose path to greatness started slowly.

As a child he didn't really set the world alight whilst attending McKinley High School, a trade school in Buffalo.

He failed many of his classes, as well as not managing to make the grade at football, basketball or track & field teams either.

It was as if no matter what he tried to succeed at he just couldn't get it going.

But like so many people in life, who struggle to find their path, it wasn't until he transferred to a different location, in this case Bennett High School that he found that he was trying to achieve in areas that weren't naturally him.

It was there where he found his passion for public speaking,  and used his silver tongue to wow his peer group, becoming Senior Class President.

And now he started to get going. He had found something that he could do better than most.

But its ok, to have a silver tongue, but how can you take this talent and use it for maximum effect?

Well, he realised that he would use it to help inspire individuals and organisations find their brilliance.

He would help the world tap into the talents that they were given at birth, and start shining brighter than they have ever done before.

And he has done that very thing better than most.

He is quoted as one of the best keynote speakers ever heard or used, putting him in the same category as Bill Gates, General Colin Powell and Tony Robbins.

And as an author of seven books, helping the world discover their thing, he is a man on a mission.

But there is so much more to him than just having a brain and tongue that inspires those that he comes into contact with.

Which is what we will fnd out today.

So what was it about the first school that just didn't fit with him?

And why does he feel that people are unaware of just how brilliant that they can be not just in America but really everywhere across the globe?

Todays guest is a lady who is talking my language when it comes to staff development.

If you have listened to a few of the shows, you will have heard me wax lyrical as to why companies focus in on the things that employees can't do, and pretty much ignore the things they can.

It seems lunacy to me that strengths are not developed to the highest level possible.

But for some reason they are not.

Well, our guest found that same belief when she was in her first manager role, and whilst sitting in her office got a phone call from a colleague.

Her colleague was extremely upset as she had just received her annual performance review and felt beat up and worthless.

She shared that she had been barely recognized for the things she was good at, and marked down for things that just weren’t in her nature.

And with these words, our guests life was changed forever “Why can’t they just accept me for who I am? I’m 35 years old, I’m not going to change.”

An so with those words ringing in her ear, she set off to change the lives of employees across America.

She is a speaker, coach, author and founder of Shoop Training & Consulting so certainly has a lot on her plate at the moment.

But what was it about this one employee that really hit home, more than any of the others that she had managed during her corporate life?

And how can people find their key strengths in life, and then most importantly convince their management to let them flourish in these areas?

Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Emilie Shoop.

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Join Up Dots free business interview, is a man who from the very early stages in his life had the hustle muscle working overtime.

At the age of nine he would sneak comics into school to sell them to his classmates, who couldn't get enough of the latest adventures of their favourite characters, so would cough up their hard earned pocket money for the privilege.

And I suppose it wasn't a surprise that he could see the way to earn a buck or two, as both his parents were successful entrepreneurs, and being surrounded by people who do things their way and work to achieve things, is as we know so hugely powerful to your own development.

So with a track record of a range of ventures including a nightclub promotions company, a modelling agency and a fashion line, he is attempting to find the thing that brings all his hustle together and creates the future that he deserves.

And now more recently, he has been managing his own financial advisory firm, Fordyce & Playle, and a new online estate agency, Market My Property

But if you think that this episode will be about a young man who is working solely on his own life, and becoming an entrepreneur of note, then think again.

As with passions ranging from animal healthcare, children and even appearing in the 'Famous Males Checkum' cancer calendar he is doing his best to give back to the world.

So where does he see his true value to the world being directed at its highest level?

And does he feel that he is on track to achieve his dream of the youngest entrepreneur to sit as an investor on BBC's tv show "Dragon's Den"

Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Tom Webster.

Todays guest is a lady, who believes that entering into adult life with a solid education is extremely advisable, but entering into adultlife with the debt that education brings is not.

She was a college graduate who ended her education with zero student loans.

What I hear you say.....no student loans how is that possible!

Well, hang on a minute as if you think that sounds inplausible then consider that not only was her college bill paid for but she actually got paid to go to school too.

As the first in her family, she had to figure out the scholarship process on her own, and so successfully did this, she now wants to help other students and their families do the same and the first step has been writing the Amazon bestseller "The Scholarship System."

This best selling book details the exact strategies, and insider information that she uncovered which allowed her to bring in over $125,000 in scholarships and financial aid, paying her entire college bill and giving her extra cash each semester.

She was able to focus on her higher education rather than constantly worrying about money and how much student loan debt was piling up.

But that is just one part of her story as this is a lady who has an eye of creating a life that so few people are willing to create, and she is going for it Big time.

As she says "Recently I have realized that future options are endless and, while I have always taken advantage of those opportunities in front of me, I am now creating my own."

So how does someone come out of the education system with a mind-set so different from so many others, who focus in on a job, and not creating the opportunities that can lead to financial freedom instead?

Todays guest is a man whose middle name is maxi (i'll be honest I'm not sure if this was from birth or he added it later), but it certainly fits extremely well in regards to his approach to life.

He believes that we all have it in us to live our lives to the "Max" and its not our situations, income, lifestyles, or anything else that holds us back other than quite simply ourselves.

He qualified as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, and worked for many years providing solutions-orientated guidance for weight-loss, smoking, and the elimination of phobias.

His goal is to encourage clients to adapt and improve all aspects of their lives by understanding the vital role the mind plays in all our lives.

And it's not just individuals where his talents as a "Mind Coach" come to the fore, as he works with companies, organisations and individuals from his varied experience as a Business Owner, Sports Coach, Trainer, Sales Manager and Therapist he knows what they are going through.

He is the author of 'Escape the Mind Trap - How to Conquer Your Inner Demons' and can dig down past the stumbling blocks and self-limiting beliefs that hold us all back, and find the fears and anxieties that actually create the things that we think are holding us back.

Get rid of them and see your life change.

So how has he managed to overcome the fears and concerns that stop the rest of in our tracks?

And does he see the same issues time and time again, and can help us on Join Up Dots make a step forward in our own pursuit of success?

Todays guest is a lady who claims that she has never had a bad job, even though she spent several semesters helping students cut open and poke around in cats and pigs.

Yes, I think that is the first time that I have had that fact in an introduction.

But that isn't one of those facts that define her, but the fact that this lady knows how to hustle certainly does.

When it comes to getting the work done, she is willing to put in the hours, and believes wholeheartedly that the only way to reap the rewards that your life deserves is by taking the old leap of faith.

And that is what she has done, she leapt and kept flexing the hustle muscle everyday since leaving her corporate gig and going it alone.

And with a history of working in a sports marketing company, where she worked with many Fortune 500 clients, starting with IMG and most recently leading the marketing efforts for an agency owned by NASCAR driver, she knew how to get a product to market.

But its ok, knowing how to do this if someone else is footing the bill.

But what if you have the idea for a product and have to get it into the hands of the consumers yourself?

Well, in 2011 she used her branding, marketing and sales experience to launch such a product and Slawsa, a unique slaw-salsa hybrid condiment was born.

And within two years after launch, the product could be found on the shelves of over 5,200 stores in the U.S. and Canada with rave reviews from critics and consumers alike.

What makes her story even more fascinating, is that even though this might be deemed as a success, she was then willing to take Slawsa and drop it into ABC's Shark Tank for the sharks to fight over?

Did she get investment? Did she come out of the waters intact?

Coming originally from the South American country of Chile, our guest has set out on a path to not only create her dream life, but also to help the world find theirs too!

As the founder of “Money & You®,” and other successful financial platforms she knows and shares how we can all develop systems that will accelerate the growth of our businesses.

And what she gives us is not just manuals full of structures and systems, but a complete mind-set shift, to believe that success is ours to have.

She can rewire us all to think like multi-millionaires.

She has appeared on multiple movies, been quoted in hundreds of books, and appeared on radio and TV shows all over the world.

But how does a lady come from Chile, move to America, and create a platform of success that crosses the globe and effects students in over 65 countries?

How did todays guest learn the skills for success that allude so many people?

And that is what I want to talk about today, how someone can think big, dream big and achieve big things, when so many others get stuck before even beginning?

Is it that she took chances that other people wouldn't have taken, or simply that she was luckier than most?

Todays guest is an astonishing lady who delivers, positivity and inspiration to the world everyday of her life.

Born with ocular albinism – a condition that has made her legally blind, she managed to hide the issues with her vision until well into her 20’s from her employers, friends and I guess the world.

More amazingly, is the fact that she had been legally blind since a child, but it wasn’t until she was 17 that she actually realised it fully too.

Her parents upon finding out their newborn daughter had been born with the condition decided that they wouldn’t tell her, as they believed that it would result in both her and others placing limits on what she could achieve in life.

And so she lived with the condition, for over ten years, as she graduated and joined an international consultancy firm.

But the time came when her eyes deteriorated so much, that she could no longer hide it anymore, and the time would come to change direction, and with that direction set out to change opinions across the world.

And I love this about her story, but the realisation of what she should do next in her life came on the top of an elephant whilst travelling 1,000 miles across the country raising funds for Sight Savers.

She decided that she would create the non profit organisation Kanchi, named after that very same elephant, that aims to change the attitudes and behaviours towards people with disability by working with business leaders, helping them to see these people as assets to be developed.

And now as her star continues to shine brighter and brighter she is highly sought after as an inspirational speaker the world over.

So how do you manage from the top of an elephant to see a path that is literally life changing and have the courage to tackle it head on?

And where does she feel the most work still needs to be done, as the world accepts and embraces disability in its many forms?

Todays guest is a man who believes that one of the best ways to create an income and business is to provide massive value to everyone you meet, and he fully subscribes to the “Pay It Forward” methodology.

And when it comes to using social media he believes wholeheartedly that this is the only way to go about building your valued network too.

As he says ”I live by the pay it forward lifestyle – if you are helped, don’t help that person, instead “pay it forward” to someone else in need.

The blessing will come back to you!”

And as an expert on how to utilise LinkedIn, he has for the last ten years travelled the country advising and presenting to  eager attendees on how to make the most of this business resource, which lets be honest not many of us really know how to do for best results.

But that is just one side of his life, as with 30 years spent in PR and Marketing and a published Amazon bestseller “Linking In to Pay it Forward: Changing the Value Proposition in Social Media” he is a man on a mission.

So was this way of operating always in him, or did he come to a conclusion that this was the best way to do things?

And is he surprised at how little people actually harness the power of LinkedIn?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only, Mr Chuck Hester.

Todays guest is a lady who maybe small in size, but towers over so many people across the globe with her positivity, gungho spirit and ability to overcome huge obstacles with a smile on her face.

She calls herself the short chick with a walking stick, and for four decades, since age 7, Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and a Walking Stick have been her constant companions.

And although she took medications that helped ease the pain and allowed her to walk, those very same medications that she took to help her actually stopped her from growing.

So at the size of 4 foot 6, she now finds herself battling the limiting thoughts that are not only hard enough when they are your own thoughts, but when they come from everyone else too, are doubly difficult.

She has survived 8 complicated, nearly life-ending, record-breaking surgeries to keep her walking, and has survived the loss of both parents and other loved ones, as well as her own thoughts of suicide in childhood.

Now if that seems like this episode is going to be a grim one then think again, as with her own business, and inspirational content that helps people across the globe bringing her more and more success, it is going to be anything but.

But what is it that really light her up inside?

And how did she find the strength to keep on going, after numerous painful operations, when so many people would have resorted to playing the victim game?

And where does she see her life in the future, with so many things going on in her life?

Todays guest has a mantra in life, and one that has been tested time and time again.

“You can’t always control what happens to you, but you can always control how you respond to what happens to you.” 

But that's ok, if you have mental strength, but what if you are quote on quote a normal person who gets hit by things in life and allow them to rock them on your heels.

You savour the victim mentality and share the story of hardship and mental strife with friends and colleagues.

You go back to your home and play sad music, until you pull yourself together and go again.

But how do you learn the lessons in life, that can help you realise that like our guests mantra you can really control your life and get the better life that you deserve.

Well over the last ten years, our guest has battled two bouts of chronic illness, a terrible injury that occurred to her daughter, black mold poisoning, financial devastation including the loss of a business and home, and if that isn't bad enough then she also had to deal with post traumatic stress disorder too.

That is at least one whammy every two years.

But instead of letting it stop her progression forward our guest learnt from these life lessons, and developed the "Choose A Better Life" platform and the Amazon best seller "Choose A Better Life: Common sense For Uncommon Living.

So did she always have the mental strength, or did she go through the classic draw the curtains and hide from the world phase?

Or was it an epiphany that made her scream "I can control what happens to me"

Todays guest on the show is a man who, ill be honest when I started researching him, I thought "How the hell does he pack everything that he is doing into a day?"

If you think that you are busy, then think again, as not only is he currently the Head of English, Drama and Media Studies at an outstanding Catholic school in Hertfordshire., but he is also juggling the work of a freelance journalist.

Writing articles that regularly appear in ten industry-leading magazines that cover the automotive, aerospace, technology and travel sectors he is a man in demand.

His articles are read by over 12,000 subscribers in print, and more online, but he is even more busy than that as the author of several bestselling books "The Missing", "Life Of Sin" and "On Guard" the last blending his love and expertise of fencing.

Yes, he could challenge me to a dual at dawn, as for seven years he was a Karl was a competitive fencer. Fencing is in his blood.

So how does he pack so much into his life, and still find that urge for consistent creativity?

And if he could choose just one of his talents to do only, which one would he choose?

Well let's find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Karl Vadaszffy!

Todays guest is a man who states that he is a Christ Follower, CEO of Author Media, Professional Speaker, Podcaster, Wordpress Lover, Marketer, Political Trouble Maker, & Homeschool Graduate.

Which means that the conversations today can literally go anywhere, and he will have an opinion on it....so what shall I start with first...religion or politics?

Well let's start with the fact that since building his first website at the age of thirteen, our guest has been fascinated with communication whether its in the written word or by presenting his message in award winning presentations across America.

He believes in connecting with people across the globe, and so it wasn't too much of a surprise to see that the early party of his career led heavily towards directing people on the political campaign trail.

For several years he assisted political hopefuls to run their campaign at grass roots level by recruiting, training and organising volunteers to knock on doors and convince those voters that they met, that their boss was the way forward.

But it was when he took this love of influencing and communicating, and combined it with his love of wordpress and website building that his career really started gaining speed.

And in 2008 he created Umstattd Media focusing on social media consulting, web design, and helping authors and businesses get the most out of the web.

This later changed to Castle Media Group and the rest as they is history.

So what it is it about communication that really lights him up inside, and helps him explode the potential opportunities all around him?

And does he have any design to go full circle and bring his skills back into the political environment?

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

Todays guest is a man who seems to have an absolute passion for building stuff.

As he says "I have been writing and commercializing software since childhood. My goals are the same now as they were then: to solve difficult, practical problems with software"

With a talent for writing code for computer programmes, and an eye for potential start-ups he has had astonishing success.

Success that quite simply could leave him sitting on a island doing nothing for the rest of his life, due to the $700,000,000 Google paid him for the Cambridge, Mass-based ITA Software Inc.

But that is just a tiny part of what has made him who he is, as he has steadily worked on his life, his career, and projects since leaving University with a bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science.

Even before that he would grab every opportunity he could to develop his skills, and for five years between 1986 and 1991 in every school break he would work as a developer on Xenix and Mach operating systems, and then went on to co-found ITA Software in 1998.

For all you computer game lovers, also know that he was the first employee hired at the video game developer Naughty Dog, where he co-created the first two installments of the Crash Bandicoot games for PlayStation.

But for me, and this is what I want to touch on, as I like this fact very much, is he seems to have a completely opposing view to the overnight success, get rich quick practice that has taken control of the world over the last few decades.

He works slowly and steadily, building his work in almost secrecy until 100% comfortable to release to the world.

And now with his latest venture Inky, an email organising system gaining more and more interest he once again, is giving birth to something that the world is looking for, and will bring even more success.

So, are there similarities between building computer games, and business platforms?

And what does he see in the world today that he wishes that he could have built?

Podcast 180: Caitlin Zaino: An Entrepreneur Lady Who Cooks Up Delights With Her Passion For Food

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Steve Jobs inspired podcast, is a lady who from an air conditioned hotel room in Nicaragua found her path to a future that delights her, inspires her and probably makes her struggle to keep the weight off too.

Whilst whiling away the days watching the Food Network on television, she came up with a plan that would combine her passion for foods with her delight in travel...she would become the Urban Grocer.

Traveling the world she would seek out the kind of exotic foods that each country produces and weave it into a spunky informative and fun tv programme.

But if you think that her career history is one that is linked with the media and her delight in discovering and talking about amazing foods, then think again.

Way back in 2004, she worked in a restaurant in Boston prepping hot and cold first courses during and before service, but then amazingly left and became a script writer for the Russian Premier Mikhail Gorbachev.

Yeah really, how the hell did that happen?

I can't begin to imagine, but straight after that she jumped back into the food game, and hosted a Food Radio Programme in Switzerland called "Caitlin's Kitchen".

Getting the idea?? This is one of those shows where the dots of her life are quite difficult to tie up, but it seems true to say that even as a small child, working away in her mothers kitchen, she learnt to appreciate the delights of what we can place on our dinner plates.

And that has carried throughout her adult life.

And now with her latest venture, Porter and Sail, she is combining her love of food, and travel, with her passion for helping the discerning travellers to find the best of what is out there.

The hidden gems, that can help us all be world savvy diners.

So it is with huge delight, that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots ,the one and only freedom cooking entrepreneur Caitlin Zaino

Todays guest, is not just an entrepreneur, but is something that believes that creating the perfect lifestyle is all about making the right decisions.

He is a man who has spent all his life being fascinated by what makes people tick.

And when it comes to working out why some people learn really easily, whilst others struggle then he is your man to go to.

Is it about the style of teaching, or the style of thinking that helps people learn?

Wow that’s a deep question to start with straight away, but hey, what a great question to ask, as todays guest has built his whole success around developing Cognician an interface needed to create discussions and ask insightful questions within the e-learning process.

Along with his brother, Barry he realised that there was a world out there that felt that e-learning lacked engagement, and was simply a platform based around multiple choices.

And I agree with them whole heartedly.

As they say At Cognician, “We believe that anyone is capable of learning something new if they have the right tools. It’s our mission to make such tools and to create the best online learning experience possible, which leads to sustainable behaviour change.

People don’t change easily. And giving them information won’t solve the problem on its own. If you want to change people’s behaviour, and allow them to build their perfect lifestyle then you need to start by changing the way they think. One really powerful way to do that is to give them new questions to ask. New questions turn their thinking in new directions. New thinking leads to new revelations. And these aha moments are what lead to genuine shift.”

This man is someone who is speaking my language big time, so its with huge delight that I get to bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Patrick Kayton.

Todays guest is a fantastic fella who I have wanted to have on the show right from the very first days of Join Up Dots.

But like all new things that you start, I felt I needed a platform and an exposure that was worth his time, as he has a fantastic story that so many of you will resonate with.

He is a chap who grew up in quite a working class part of the United Kingdom, known as Coventry, and was a self confessed sensitive child, who struggled with many parts of being a kid that so many people breeze through.

The transition to senior school was particularly difficult for him, and in an attempt to find some courage that he could take back into his school-life, he  commenced a martial arts course.

However, the positive idea to empower, unfortunately had quite the opposite effect, as one day the martial arts tutor abused him, and quite simply changed his life over night.

And from that point, his life spiralled into a world of violence and anger.

And for over a decade he built a life based around the punishment he could dish out particularly around his job as a nightclub bouncer.

But then his life changed again, and he realised that he had to take control, and reclaim his own personal power.

And with the publication of his first book detailing this part of his life, he moved into a world of creating, positive reinforcement and inspiring the world to take control of their lives.

He has since written forty books (published in 21 languages), five multi-award-winning films, three stage plays (he was invited into the prestigious Royal Court writers Group) and hundreds of articles, many published in national magazines and broadsheets, and his autobiography ‘Watch My Back‘ has been adapted into a major motion picture Clubbed.

So does he think that he would have become so successful in this arena, if he didn't have something to fight against?

And what is the advice that he would give to himself if he had a chance to go back in time?

Well, we are going to find out, so its with great delight that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Geoff Thompson

Todays guest is a man who takes fashion very seriously.

Unlike the majority of men in the world who throw on a few items, and that is the grooming done, he prides himself on looking not just like he got dressed, but that he was designed for the event.

Even to wearing a tie at the weekend….yep I kid you not.

His image is one of sophisticated class, and so its not a surprise that with a love of looking good, his career has moved towards the fashion industry since arriving in New York City.

A dreamer, and a thinker, he seems to have a naturally strong competitive streak, that has run through much of his life since growing up in Georgia.

If he is going to do something then he doesn’t want to be just of those guys that is happy to simply be taking part. He wants to win.

He excelled at wrestling, and racquetball and for a while was almost invincible at both but just fell short at greatness and state recognition.

But it is fascinating to see someone’s life come together in such a way that you can see the elements he displayed early on his life being displayed with such force.

He has moved through jobs at quite a speed, not staying much longer than a year at most, but all the while learning the skills, and fine tuning the talents which has led him along with his business partner Richard to launch Fohr card.

They founded Fohr card with the purpose of bringing together two groups of people who share a love for storytelling, creative bloggers and creative brands.

Alone, each can create beautiful stories.

Together they believe they can create even greater ones.

It is that passion to connect and inspire which is the corner stone to everything that he does.

So what is about visuals and storytelling that so thrills him daily?

And where does he see his vision developing in the future?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, probably the most well dressed man I have ever had on, the one and only Mr James Nord.

Since attending University at South Florida our guest today has literally been capturing the world from in front and now behind the lens of his camera.And although it might have seemed like a hobby, or just something to do at first, it has lead to a career in TV news, video production, broadcast PR, and even teaching.And that is the beauty of joining up the dots, although you can see the path clearly when you look back, at the time its just grabbing opportunities, making connections, and hopefully enjoying yourself.And it seems that our guest who originated from California, has been enjoying himself as he has traveled the  length and breadth of the country doing the very thing that he loves.And now with a handful of awards to his name and appearances on NPR, and Forbes.com, he has developed his own resource center at webvideochefs where he teaches us all how to get the best from our cameras.So lets start looking at his life through a lens as we join up dots with the one and only Amani Channel.

Todays guest is a man who at the age of 25 took on the world at public speaking and came out top.

Yes, he beat 30,000 people to claim the title of the youngest World Champion of Public Speaking in history.

Contestants came from 116 countries and didn't stand chance as they were up against our guy.

They should have seen him and not bothered to even unpack their suitcases.

But what made his speech so powerful?

What made it a world beater?

Well for one he was true to himself, and also spoke about a subject that resonates with the whole world.

He took his grandmother’s advice and created a speech which illustrated that life is limited and why we must push past our fears. Wow he should have called it Join Up Dots

But coming from Humble, Texas a suburb of Houston it was not predestined that he was going to be a world beater.

As he says "I have always felt confident speaking in front of large groups but what I struggle with is making sure I am connecting, engaging and leaving them with something that will make their life better. I don’t just want to speak. I want to connect and leave them with something of value. There are thousands of speakers but very few resonate and connect."

So lets see how we can all improve our skills at connecting, as we start joining up dots with the one and only Ryan Avery.

Todays guest has a fascinating tale that so many people in the world today will resonate with.

Can you end up being too qualified for employment? Can you end up having too much knowledge for a job, any job, so that the hiring employers consider you a risk and wont take you on?

Well the answer is yes, and our guest after demonstrating brilliant and forward thinking ideas whilst studying at Azusa Pacific University in California found himself in such a situation.

Life was looking good. His work was being recognised by institutes such as Harvard and Cambridge and he was on a roll.

But then things changed, and he found himself at the first of many dots that has brought him to where he is today.

Unable to get employed in the USA, he took a job in China that turned out to be a bad move.

Then he contracted e-coli which was even more of a bad move, and at the age 25 found himself sleeping on his parents sofa, recovering from internal bleeding, and a career that was in freefall.

So what did he do to pull himself out of a spiralling depression?

How did he get himself back into the game, when the game quite openly considered him a risk?

Well lets find out as we bring on to the show, to start joining up dots, the co-founder of codeBOX, the one and only Joshua Millage

Todays guest is a proud and patriotic Canadian who loves nothing more than helping the world to find their ultimate state of performance.

Whether its within the corporate environment or outside of it, he will empower business leaders, entrepreneurs, and all and sundry to stop chasing the money and make the money come their way.

He can turn us all into money magnets where, our advanced performances starts attracting those clients and potential business partners that literally are clambering for our services.

And the beauty of this method, is that it also has a knock on effect to our personal lives and make us more attractive all around.

But as we find time and time again on join up dots, these stories of huge success and inspirational dream achieving, more often than not started at the lowest point possible.

And that was the case with todays guest.

When he was in his twenties, he had just got married, his wife was having their first baby, and he was flat broke!

And at that point in his life, he wasn't even thinking of putting food on the table, he was simply desperate to get a roof over their heads.

He became so desperate that he had to borrow money from his friend's wedding envelopes to use as a down payment on his first house.

But from that point, which was potentially his lowest point, he sat down and started questioning what he wanted in life

Do you know who you are? Do you love what you are doing? Do you have what you want out of life? Do you know what you want out of life? Do you wake up and jump out of bed every morning eager to face the challenges of a new day?

Brilliant questions and the type of questions that so few of us even allow a passing thought to land in their direction.

And now with several best selling books, huge presentations to massive audiences, coaching programmes, and a myriad of other stuff filling up his days, he won't ever need to worry about putting food on the plate again.

In fact as he says, he now doesn't actually have to ever work again?

So what was it about his lowest point that made him pick up pen and paper and start fighting back?

And what brought him to that point in the first place?

And where does he see his life going in the future, now that he has financially freed himself from the restraints that hold so many of us in place?

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

Todays guest is a lady who is tackling so many different areas, and subjects in her life that you kind of wonder where to start first?

She is an actress, producer, animal lover, TV host to name just a few of the things that fill her resume.

But the interesting thing to me is you would have expected her to start her career at drama school and be performing as Annie in local productions, but the truth is very much different.

For many years, since 1983 she was a fight attendant for America West Airlines, so she was certainly aiming high even in those days.

And since then the sky has literally been the limit and as an award-winning actress and film producer with more than 37 film shorts, eight feature-length films, several television roles, and a theatre play to her credit she has flourished in a business that has for many people brought them to their knees.

Over the years, she has produced nine films one in which she played multiple characters including a man, and another called Veil, which helped her win awards as best actor in a film short.

And then if that wasn't enough she decided that she could muscle into my territory and through her interview with the president of the Arizona Film and Media Coalition, Mike McGinn she won a Gold Hermes Award in 2010 for a television news interview

And now with her show "The Animal Rescuers" gaining a bigger and bigger and hugely loyal fanbase, she is in control of her destiny like never before, but you just know that he has only got to this point by hustling like crazy for many, many years.

So what was it about the airline industry that kept her working there for so long?

And how does she decide where she should channel her energies into next, with so many opportunities flowing round her?

Todays guest is man who if you take all the letters of his name and rearrange them you will get "Huge Action Taker"

Well, actually that isn't the case, but it should be, as this is a guy who over the last few years has literally sprung to the top of his chosen field, by deciding on what he wanted, taking huge action and not allowing the obstacles that stop us all in our tracks to bother him.

Way back in 1999 he started his career in the navy, as a Electronics Technician Third Class and for four years served his country.

And upon leaving the military then moved through a series of positions and companies not coming anywhere near to that same length of service.

Was this a man finding his place in things?

Or was this simply the route that people take nowadays to show ambition to future employees?

Well we are going to find out, but its true to say that in the last couple of years he has really put himself out there and taken risks to create a future that he loves.

And one that no employee cant ake away from him

As a host of the top rated show "Starve The Doubts", and the powerhouse behind the Pod Mov University and this years Podcast Movement Conference held in Dallas he is rocking and rolling with the best of them.

And now as a bestseller author on Amazon with the podcasting bible Podcasting Good to Great: How to Grow Your Audience Through Collaboration he has added even more success to his life.

So what was it in his life that made him jump from the corporate life and enter into the uncertain world of entrepreneurship?

And why did he feel the need to not just do one thing well, but take on so much in such a short period time?

Welcome to the show a man who at his core has a burning passion to empower

He has a belief that his talent and reason for being here, is to can inspire the youth of today that they do not have to, or should have to, accept the path that has been trod so many times before.

That path that takes you into jobs and responsibilities that society appears to say are the right ones to take.

The choices that need to be made because millions of people before have been told to do the same, and have done just that.

Ending up in uninspiring, soul destroying employment that is so far removed from their unique self.

After starting his first business at the age of 19, he has been able to live an entrepreneurial lifestyle by being diligent on all opportunities that are presented his way.

In short he has managed to overcome the fear that root so many of us to spot.

And has created a kick ass life for himself in the process.

So as a published author of the best selling book The Productive Person Action Guide: How to be more productive and maximize your work-life balance in 2 weeks, and a stream of delighted clients and conferences halls all across America, how has he managed to do just that?

What has separated him from his target audience that just a few years previously he was sat amongst?

Todays guest entrepreneur is a man who quite simply looks better naked than most men of a certain age should look.

But this man is certainly on a mission.

He is a  software consultant by day and a Star Diamond Independent Beachbody coach by night.  

Yes, that’s right.  

An IT geek turned fitness coach, with a desire and motivation not just to change himself physically, but also to inspire the world to be more fit, active and toned.

Yes, he literally bounces out of bed everyday, with the freedom to look straight ahead , ready to inspire his clients and the world, to take control of their lives, their bodies and what they do with their days.

So what was it that made him want to become the lean mean online machine?

And where does he think that this Get Fit With Greg business can go in the future?

Todays guest is a lady who has a path that is so similar to many of us, who are searching for a better way of living our lives.

We are in a job that we dislke, and feel the ambition and drive to take control of our futures and go it alone.

But what can it be like when you also have the burning passion to also help the world find a better way of living too, but you find that path that you know is right for you, is actually destroying you little by little.

Your dreams and ambitions are actually the very things that kick you in the teeth and stop you in your tracks.

Well, our guest had been in corporate America and was used to hustling, working extremely hard everyday, and coming back for more again and again.

It was what she did. And what she knew.

But after taking the leap of faith and setting up her own coaching business, helping clients and friends find the passions and path in life, she realised that she had taken on too much.

So determined was she to make a huge difference her body started closing down.

She had pushed herself to the limit of her personal endurance, and had hit a crossroads

In her own words "I created a trap for myself where I took that toxic environment that I had in the corporate world and created my own version. I was doing things that I was really excited about, but the problem was that I did not put any of me into any of that time."

And so she stopped and assessed. 

She made the difficult decisions that went against who she was, but knew would make her who she should be.

And now with a flourishing business, a wonderful home life and a smile that literally covers the whole of her face, isn't she glad that she did just that.

But why did she leave a situation that she didn't like, and recreate it step by step?

What made her decide that she had to reach out to others for help, to be able to help the people that she was so determined to provide support to?

Todays guest is a man who quite simply could be a guest on Join Up Dots for a whole week.His history has so much packed into it, its a struggle to decide where I want to start.Well lets start with telling you that he was born in Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and as has made his way through many different positions to where he now finds himself as an established and successful author.From working in a mortuary, a garage and on a production line he did what many young men did back in the day and joined the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air arm as a pilot and served 21 years protecting the United Kingdom across the world, not least around the area of the Falklands during the war against Argentina.Later, he worked at Headquarters in London which required continual work  that was classed ‘Top Secret’, including United Kingdom preparations for war and transition to war (the ‘War Book’), and he became very familiar with techniques for intelligence gathering in numerous covert operations.If that sounds like a full life of activities and passions, then our guest had other ideas, and upon leaving the military picked up his pen and started writing under a series of pseudonym that has pushed him high into the bestseller lists across the world.So what would he call his true calling in life? Would it be the writing, the military career, or I suppose working in the mortuary (please don’t tell me it was the last one!)Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Peter Stuart Smith

Todays guest is a man who has had moments of huge darkness in his life, but has made sure that the situations that he unwittingly found himself forever linked to, were never going to define him.

On a cold and misty morning in October 1975, our guest woke up as a scared and bewildered 5 year old, to discover that his mother was gone.

She was the first victim of the notorious Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe who for several months had struck fear into the heart of the United Kingdom as he preyed the streets of Leeds looking for unwitting victims.

What made this mans journey so amazing was that his first reaction, even at such an early age, was to think about how he could improve his situation.

He knew he couldn’t bring his mother back but he could decide how to look differently at what life had thrown at him.

And since that date, he has moved through many different areas where his personality has changed due to the challenges that he has overcome, not least deciding that he could forgive the man that took so much from him.

And now with several bestseller books, a movie of his life, and over 200 hundred powerful speeches and presentations across the globe each year, he has defined himself as who he is, not who he was.

So lets bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Richard McCann.

Todays guest is a man who seems to be born to be an entreprenenur.

Pure hustle muscle, flexing at its best is what he is about, mixed in with a huge amount of wanting to enjoy what he does.

And it seems to me that he managed to do just that too.

From starting in quite humble beginnings selling bed linen at Macey's, he blossomed quickly to selling Popcorn from a stall in a shopping mall, and then working for some of the biggest most famous companies in the world.

And with a resume listing Microsoft and Facebook as companies that saw the drive that he had, and the ability to work tirelessly in a chaotic environment, the sky should have been the limit for him but life had other ideas.

When he was 24, he was hired as Facebook's 30th employee.

He joined the company when it was one year old; it had a few million users and was getting 50,000 new signups per day, and upon being offered employment he was given two salary options : He selected the one he wanted, and the stock options would have made him worth about $185 million today, however that was irrelevant as nine months later he was fired.

And although a kick in the teeth financially, this disappointment as we see time and time again on Join Up Dots could have turned out to be the best thing that had happened to him,.

He reassessed his dreams, performance and chosen path leading him now to being the Chief Sumo at AppSumo.com, an online provider of digital goods and tools such as the kind of apps, that can teach and educate on a wide range of subjects.

Amazingly it was originally created in one weekend using an outsourced team in Pakistan for $60.

He hustled and bootstrapped the company, eventually accepting limited outside funding, including a "staggering" $20.47 from his mother, Debra

So what made him realise that this was the thing that he should focus on?

And what is the different between the man he is today and the one that left Facebook quicker than he probably expected?

And how come he didn't let me into the amazing resource he has developed called Sumome.com?

Have you ever wondered what it must feel like to be an inspiring pop star and wander around in the aerified world of celebrity and success.

Or be a tv host, or media personality.

Well todays guest entrepreneur has done all those things, and most amazingly has created jobs in those worlds pretty much by herself.

She has got off her backside and since a young girl has flexed her hustle muscle like very few people do.

Total motivation to earn income, freedom and the best type of career success all by herself.

She first came to attention as the co-host of Style Network’s Modern Girls Guide to Life, and has moved effortlessly through the fashion world teaching ladies and brands how to look a million dollars for less than one hundred bucks. 

But before that she earned her stripes as a production Assistant with Saturday Night Live whilst just starting college.

And this seems to say a lot about her.

She saw an advert for a super cool gig, and instead of thinking "I bet thousands of people go for that" and giving up before starting, she picked up the phone, made that call, and got the job.

See inspiration and belief mixed with hustle!

But is not just fashion that has taken up her time as she has also toured the country with NASA fronting a math/science rock band, was featured in the Sundance award winning film, We Live in Public, and god this intro could be fifteen minutes long if I keep going with what she has going on.

So where has she got this boundess enthusiasm to keep on kocking on doors, and of course building doors herself?

Where does she feel her true talents lie?

And why does she feel the need to sing all the way through American Idol much to the annoyance her roommates?

Todays guest is not a normal type of guy. He does things his way, even to at the age of 61 going back to graduate school and getting a Masters in Creativity and Innovation, when to be honest the majority of us are glad that education finished in our teens.

What makes this even more unusual is that this is a guy who has started and run several successful companies, ranging from a novelty manufacturing company, to Terrasanti a natural wall product made from American Clay, which has won many awards over the last few years

He classes himself as a life term entrepreneur, but its the fascination for continued education that is so inspiring, as 10 years ago when he sold his novelty manufacturing company moved to a new town in California and spent the next 3 years getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and mixed media from Sonoma State.

So, after a career of artistic business, creative enterprises and entrepreneurial ventures, he decided to delve into where creativity comes from, how to make innovation happen in organizations, and how anyone can tap into creativity, the number one quality that CEO’s now look for in new hires.

With a world changing this fast, business knows they must build a culture to sustain creativity and innovation to change... or die.

So where does our guest find his continued passion for new experiences?

And where does he get his ideas for the new and exciting from?

Todays guest is the bestselling author of “Crush It with Kindle” and host of the top ranked business and marketing podcast “Publish Position Profit.”

He is an online marketing expert, entrepreneur, speaker, business coach and founder and CEO of the Strategic Positioning Press publishing house.

And believe me this guy is not your normal podcaster like me, because he is clever…really clever like he attended both Cambridge and Oxford universities.

As he had a desire to be a corporate lawyer, with the big office full of dusty books, and the very attractive paralegals hanging on his every word.

But as we see time and time again on Join Up Dots, the path that people set out on as they reach adulthood turn out to leave them feeling flat.

They realise along that path that they need and want more in life.

Today, instead of being chained to his desk at a law firm, John now works with experts and entrepreneurs from around the world helping them to strategically position themselves so that they can rapidly grow their businesses by attracting more of their ideal clients and by being able to charge what they are truly worth.

His mission is to help experts and entrepreneurs share their message with the world so that they can build a successful business doing something they love, live life on their terms and inspire others.

So what was it about the life of a lawyer that turned out to be wrong for him?

Why did he decide to go to two British universities….was it just about access to the student bar?

And does he feel that now he is on the path that is right for him?

Todays guest is a man who has a desire to give back to the world and empower the youth of today.
 
For the ages of 11 to 17 he is creating a movement to assist, support and empower young individuals that are living or have experienced issues in their personal lives that are quite simply too horrible for the majority of us to understand.

Abuse, both mental and physical, the stripping away of self esteem, the taking away of bright futures that should be a child’s right.

Leaving many with no other option than to feel they have to take their own lives.

He understands how they feel, as for many years he was just like them.

Trapped in a dark world as a child, that no child should endure.
 
Memories of trips to the circus. Visits to the park, or just fun and free moments which all children should savour not something that he can look back at.

He tried to take his own life many many times, and thank god he didn’t succeed, as he is know fighting back.

His entrepreneurial journey has led him through many different dots, and its the joining of his dots that are so remarkable.

Remarkable as with each step he has taken into the light, his own personal light is burning brighter and brighter and now with his Human Project he is blazing a path for millions to follow.

As he says on his blog “I work daily to spread the message of H.U.M.A.N.; HOPE, UNDERSTANDING, MAKING A CHOICE, ACTION STEPS and NOURISHING THE POSSIBILITIES. I work with youth who are looking for new hope and a new path. Youth that refuse to let their surroundings dictate their outcome. Youth that want to become more then they are shown, told or given the resources to become. Youth that are willing to take action and make choices their parents were not able to do in their lives. My mission is to eliminate the words, “broken”, “worthless” and “victim” from the children’s vocabulary we reach. I speak all over the United States to children educating them on their REAL options in life. Informing them that all they must do is dream, act and nurture the possibilities to achieve ultimate joy.”

Before I have even spoken a word  to todays guest, I can say that he is a total inspiration to me, and so its with a huge honour that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Wesley Chapman.

Today's guest joining us on the show is the host of As Told By Nomads podcast, and is one of those people that I asked to come on the show, and then started researching them and thought "Man....I'm glad that I have got him coming on".

He has a dream to not just improve his lot, or that of his clients, but he is taking on the world.

He wants to bring the four corners of the globe together to get people to accept our differences, both physically and culturally.

But where did this mission come from?

When did he decide this was needed to be done and he was the man to do it?

Well unusually he had a huge education growing up, for as a child he grew up in four different continents.

He has called Sweden, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Vietnam and the United States home and so considers himself a true citizen of the world.

He wants to celebrate uniqueness and encourage diversity, build global mind-sets, tell stories about culture and most importantly to educate the world about the beauty in all of us and how we can work together to improve our global identities."

And with a podcast that is soaring up the charts "As Told By Nomads" and an inspiring online presence he is certainly a man on a mission to achieve this aim.

And its an aim that will put many people to shame who think about doing something and say to themselves "Nah, that will never work so what's the point"

So lets bring on the show, to start joining up the dots, the one and only global nomad himself, Mr Tayo Rockson.

Todays guest is a man who knows how to get into a ladies head, and understands what makes a woman tick.He has become a novelist, who focuses on content written from a females perspective, for women to enjoy.Growing up in a household that was dominated by strong female characters, he felt that he had beeen given the perfect education to step into the womans world.As he says "My mother and three aunts, each with their own unique temperament and assortment of quirks, had a profound affect on me as a child".And so he found his path with his debut novel "Teenie" being met with huge critical acclaim. But it wasn't an easy path, as  he has worked as an equities trader, beverage salesman, amusement park ride operator, human resources manager, actor, voice actor, chauffeur, and public speaker across the city of New York.So how did he get the realisation that it was time to put pen to paper in a style that I imagine would be quite difficult for a man to create?And now with his second novel "Genesis" about to be released in 2015 what has he got lined up for the future?The latest all conquering "Fifty Shades Of Grey" or just more quality writings by a man who knows his stuff?Well lets find out as I bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Christopher Grant.

Todays guest is a lady who believes quite firmly in the words of Steve Jobs that we play on the show everyday.

You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

She calls it intuition, but it's all the same thing really.

Finding the thing that lights you up inside and going for it, even if it takes you off the well worn path and into new unchartered territories.

But why was it that until quite recently, she hadn't followed the path that was true to her.

She had travelled the path that so many of us follow...the expected one.

The one that we are told to.

As a child she was constantly told that it was alright having passions, but they were not a career.

Nursing would be a good job. We always need nurses.

So she become one,  and also became physically ill for an entire year, unhappy and completely lost because she wasn’t living her purpose.

She now runs from her home in Las Vegas the "I Love Intuition" movement, where she helps purpose driven leaders strengthen and trust their intuition and creativity to create soulful and successful lives and businesses. 

Simply put she helps her clients find their strengths and passions and build businesses around them subsequently allowing them to have a kick ass life.

So why was it that the things that she obviously has a talent for, were for so many years put on the back burner?

What was it about her life that really made her fall to pieces and know that she had to change direction?

And as she lives in Las Vegas, can she get me Barry Manilow tickets?

Todays guest calls herself "A mom with a towel"

She doesn't consider herself a celebrity, she isn't a millionaire, but she is someone who had a thought, transferred that thought into action, and created a business that is growing year on year.

A few years back she had an idea for a towel with a difference.

Such a different in fact that she was featured on ABC’s Emmy nominated reality show, Shark Tank, the US equivalent of our UK based version Dragons Den.

You know the programme, when some wannabe inventor or entrepreneur steps up to the plate and tries to convince the sharks or dragons, that their product is gold and worth investment.

Well our guest quite simply shone in the spotlight and ended up having three “Sharks” fighting over her and is the only entrepreneur in the show’s history to ever leave with a check in her hand. 

Her towel has now also been featured on The Today Show, The View and Good Morning America. 

Her story is one of overcoming huge challenges and obstacles and going for it.

As she says time and time again "Dream it, Believe it, Let it Go.” 

So what made this extraordinary mother decide that an idea she had was one worth persevering with?

How did she overcome those huge obstacles, not least the fear of failure?

And what was it about this item that made the sharks go into a feeding frenzy?

Todays guest is someone that from the very beginning of launching the Join Up Dots series has been my target guest.

A listener who from listening to the shows, and taking a huge amount of action in a very short time, has started on the road to success and living the dream life they crave.

We all hear the stories, and tales of the successful in life who overcome so much and come out at the other end living the dream, but how powerful is it to hear about someone who is just a few steps along the path from us.

The kind of person who might yet to have transitioned from the 9-5, but now has a firm idea of what they want and what they need to do to achieve it.

And our guest today is certainly that kind of person.

He contacted me at first by email, due to the content that he had heard on episode 70, and asked to have a chat, which I of course was grateful to do. And not for one minute do I think that I was the catalyst for where he is today, but it meant that he took action.

He made a decision on what he needed to do, and did it.

And that was just the start, and now from his hometown of Milton Keynes in the United Kingdom, he is just about to launch his first Music Seminar on the 8th of November 2014, which he hopes will be a day that will inspire, expand minds and show that you don’t have to be stuck in a rut with music production.

The line up of speakers are some of the most innovative experts in production and the music business, and all attendees will have a whole day to absorb their knowledge, learn new skills, participate in Q & A sessions, and learn the methods to work efficiently and get their art noticed.

So he is really putting himself out, taking a risk, but working dam hard to make sure that the road he is on, becomes the road he was born to walk.

So its with great honour, to bring onto the show to start joining up dots the one and only, Join Up Dots listener....and now my friend Mr Leo Prince.

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?

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?

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?

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?

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

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

Its my pleasure to bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Erik Fisher.

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. And has the success been something that has delighted her, or just taken her away from her original life purpose and into the world of entrepreneurial ventures?I have no idea,but I am going to find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up the dots of her life, and of course "Buzzys" the one and only Dr Amy Baxter.

commitment. Your dreams may not come true tomorrow but they will come true."Not only that, as a founder of "Galahads"a movement to inspire women to take greater control of their lives,

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?

And what makes her continue to perform such an all giving task day after day, in conditions and climate so different from where her life in medicine began?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Rita Miller

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

Todays guest has a story that is fascinating for so many reasons.

Number one due to the hustle that he has shown.

Number two how it seemed that life was simply using him as a skittle and throwing obstacles after obstacles in his direction.

The kind of obstacles that for many would be the end of the dreams, and desires for a better life.

When he hit the age of 27, he knew that he had to take action in his life.

He was fat, broke and miserable and living a life that was far from what he wanted it to be.

So he started working twice as hard on a real estate business that would net him a nice amount of passive income each month.

Not life changing as such, but still more than enough to start focusing on his next dreams.

And that is where it all went wrong, as after a years hard work, and almost touching dream of the monthly income, he received a message saying that he had defaulted on his mortgage and everything went south.

So what did he do to pull himself out of this hole that was not of his making?

How did he not think "See that's why life is so rubbish" and just give up, and go back to being fat, broke and unhappy?

Well, lets find out, as its with delight that I bring on to he show to start joining up the dots of his life, the successful podcaster, online marketer, hustle monster, and ex-fat guy...Mr Jonny Andrews

Todays guest gets asked the same question again and again and again.

Why is your company called Dancing Elephants?

So I will do my very best to not ask this question as I wouldnt want to get off on the wrong foot, with a lady who is an author, speaker and consultant for companies around the world on sales and marketing.

She knows what is needed to attract clients, that become loyal consumers of a companies products?

Nope don’t see the elephants connection yet?

But how has she achieved the kind of sales knowledge that is sought after across the globe, and how did she and her partner Will Turner, develop the “Six Secrets of Sales Magnets” and the soon to be available “Sales Magnetism: The

Ethical Salesperson’s Guide To Success” which brings a different perspective to the sales technique.

Todays guest is someone who likes to ask four key questions as he seeks to build the life of his dreams

How can I have more free time?

How can I make money doing what I love?

How can I travel the world pursuing my passions?

How can I run a real business from my laptop, anywhere in the world?

They seem very good question to ask yourself I would have thought, and perhaps another question is why do so many people not ask them very same questions themselves?

But the journey to budding entrepreneur, and smart and debonair businessman was not a usual one, as we normally find on Join Up Dots.

From developing a love of music and travelling from his Dad, our guest first stepped into young adulthood as a wannabe Jon Bon Jovi, travelling around Europe and the States playing his guitar in bars, and getting up to god knows what in Amsterdam.

But it was when he landed in Nashville, the home of country music, that the path to his unique and authentic self started becoming apparent.

Along with his business partner, our budding Bon Jovi decided that they had two choices: One sign for a record company, or two: build their own record company and retain control of their music, image rights and everything else that goes into making a band.

They took the bold choice, and so started a love of business that brings him onto the show today.

So lets introduce to you, and start joining up those dots, and of course find out what DID happen in Amsterdam, the one and only Mr Jesse Krieger.

Todays guest is a man who has travelled a path most unusual.

Starting off by gaining his education in Pennsylvania he has now found himself living in Yokosuka in Japan.

Whilst working fulltime for the US military he has focused his downtime on self development and the study of the small habits we have in our life, that when used effectively can build up to something amazing.

I didn't know this, but from reading his blog I have found out that one-third to one half of ALL our daily actions are habitual?

That’s right.

Everything in our lives, and I mean EVERYTHING are the result of these automatic habits.

So our guest believes that our level of wealth, social circles, happiness, love, energy, fitness, fulfilment are all created by the subconscious mind.

We don't realise that we are building our own futures be allowing these habits, some negative to go unchecked.

It is his mission to help educate 100,000 people to become liberated. To take control of these habitual behaviors and change them.

Well this is the kind of man that I need to talk to, so its with delight that I bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Adam Smith.

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Join Up dots podcast interview is a globe trotting, double Guinness book of records world holder, with a story based on constant action.

An adventurer, film-maker, travel blogger and TV presenter from Liverpool, England, on January 1 2009 he crossed the River Plate into Uruguay and began The Odyssey Expedition: The first official Guinness World Record™ attempt to visit every sovereign state on Planet Earth without flying.

That's the 193 members of the United Nations plus Taiwan, Vatican City, Palestine, Kosovo, Western Sahara and the four home nations of The United Kingdom.

A staggering 201 international borders crossed by foot, bus, taxi, train, ship or canoe.

No planes, no helicopters and no hot-air balloons.

Along the way he self-filmed and presented the TV show Graham's World for the National Geographic Adventure channel and raised funds for the registered charity WaterAid. 

So what is it that made him leave the comfort and security of a life in the North of England to travel the globe, in the hardest manner possible?

And are there any countries that once he arrived he thought...right I'm not staying here time to move on?

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast interview is a globe trotting, double Guinness book of records world holder, with a story based on constant action.

An adventurer, film-maker, travel blogger and TV presenter from Liverpool, England, on January 1 2009 he crossed the River Plate into Uruguay and began The Odyssey Expedition: The first official Guinness World Record™ attempt to visit every sovereign state on Planet Earth without flying.

That's the 193 members of the United Nations plus Taiwan, Vatican City, Palestine, Kosovo, Western Sahara and the four home nations of The United Kingdom.

A staggering 201 international borders crossed by foot, bus, taxi, train, ship or canoe.

No planes, no helicopters and no hot-air balloons.

Along the way he self-filmed and presented the TV show Graham's World for the National Geographic Adventure channel and raised funds for the registered charity WaterAid. 

So what is it that made him leave the comfort and security of a life in the North of England to travel the globe, in the hardest manner possible?

And are there any countries that once he arrived he thought...right I'm not staying here time to move on?

And did I tell you he is now the owner of his own island "JinjaIsland" which he won in a competition too?

So is he the luckiest guy on earth, or just someone that by taking huge action has put himself into positions that others would miss out on?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, the one and only, Ginger Scouser himself.....Mr Graham Hughes.

Welcome back to a lady who first appeared on the show, way back on episode 32 of Join Up Dots.

She must be a glutton for punishment to come back on, but aren't I simply delighted that she has done just that.

Since her travelling adventures started over four years ago, she has covered the globe observing the characteristics of the people who live in each of the countries she has spent time in.

And its not a surprise to her that whether she was living in the United States, Germany or Thailand she found that we all want the same things.

We want to be  Happy, feel peace, and have a freedom of suffering whether this be fear, negativity or frustration.

The only difference is how we go about getting to those results.

Being a naturally adventurous and positive person obviously helps enormously, but what about the listeners who don't embrace adventure and freedom of spirit in such a gungho way?

Can they also achieve these positive results, and take control of their own lives in the process?

Well our guest today believes so, and through her role as Peak Performance coach has made it her mission to help others find the path to excitement and fulfilment that makes a life well…….memorable to say the least.

So if you are wondering if there is more to life than you are getting at the moment, and don't know how to go about it, then let me introduce you once more to the salsa dancing, fun loving, creative spirit that is Miss Ginger Kern.

And how did he overcome those same fears that we all have but are surely worse when following along in the family business? And lastly if he focuses on helping others get what they want....what is it that he truly wants? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Tom Ziglar.

Todays guest is a man who can attest to have tried, enjoyed and had mixed success at many things before finding his true calling in life.

From a musician, to a blogger, to martial arts participant, to even a dog trainer, it seems that his path to success has been a mixed one.

But as we see time and time again on Join Up Dots, getting to where everything pulls together in life is often a bit of a journey.

And its only by looking back and  guess what,...Joining Up Those dots that you can see how it all began working for you.

Our guest found the thing that has taken him to the top, by realising his limitations as a blogger.

He realised that no matter how much content he was producing not enough people were seeing it.

"How the hell do you get your content out to the widest audience possible?" he thought.

It's all right, writing the latest works of Shakespeare, but if noone gets to see it then what's the point?

So our guest created Triberr, an online community of bloggers who work together to share each others content.

And the rest, as they say is history, and now with this success under his belt, he is now a sought after speaker, strategic Marketing consultant, and if you need a love song banged out for your special person, I'm sure he could do that too.

So lets bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Dino Dogan

Todays guest is another example of someone who seems to have been born with the skills to make their own money.

At a very early age, whilst his friends were going the normal route to get jobs, by creating resumes and attending interview after interview he had other ideas.

He realised that the only person who is going to get wealthy in that scenario would be the employer not the employee.

So he set on of an entrepreneurial path to start making his own money, and at quite an early age too.

At the age of 11, you could find him selling his personal snacks at scout camp and by age 17 he had hired his friends to help him operate his landscaping business that earned him $10,000 for college.

All in all, by age 20 he started and ran over $320,000 in businesses.

But that was just the start of it all as he realised that the skills that he had built up were transferable and most importantly teachable.

So he began teaching other college students to run their own successful businesses, which led him to receive the "Entrepreneur of the Year" award from Young Entrepreneurs Across America.

 He now speaks to students across the country teaching them the lessons he's learned as a young entrepreneur and encouraging them to take the entrepreneurial leap.

So how has he managed to take the leap of faith that for many seems too big to handle?

How did he persuade a bunch of 17 year olds to work for him.....I cant get my kids to do anything even if I pay them!

Well lets find out as we start joining up dots, with the one and only Chandler Bolt
