Entrepreneurs Success Stories By Join Up Dots, Inspiration, Confidence, & Small Business Coaching To Start Your Online Career (entrepreneurs)

In today’s episode of Join Up Dots we spend time looking at whether we should a business plan when starting a business.

Should you plan it all out when you first start or instead make it up as you go along?

Well there are so many nuggets of gold in this episode you will want to grab a pen and paper and take notes for sure. Ready?

Dear David, It’s your favourite Hungarian listener again. Last time it gave me such a good feeling that you started your episode talking about my review. It made my day that I heard that I’d made yours. So today I’ve listened to the episode with Milana Leshinsky about ‘Simplicity’. You both have agreed on that we – the newbies in business – shouldn’t even write business plan cause we have no idea who to follow and what we can achieve. I am on a different opinion. I think that if I find a company that I like and it’s working then it’s better to follow cause WE HAVE NO IDEA. So someone who has already experiences running a business knows better and would give us a clue, right? Also, we can learn from other apps – how they’ve reached their target audience. The other thing is that I’m finishing my part sooner then my business partner. I’m responsible for the design, figuring out the structure of the app and what the user should see and how they want to use and I’m also writing the business plan (!) :D. I think it is important to summarize what we are building for whom, when and why. But he is responsible for all the technology part, like programming the app and building a web server (if there is such a thing). So the question is if I should help him with his tasks or we should stick to the basic roles and I can improve my part. So by the time he is finishing the prototype I will already have several plans what to do with it. But do we have time in such a field? Or should we involve more people – ones who know more about programming? But then it’s risky that we are loosing control. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, David!

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who asks a great question. “Would you invest 5 minutes a day to achieve a higher level of success? Worldwide, countless real estate agents, entrepreneurs, sales professionals, business owners and others have said YES! If they can do it, you can too! You only have to invest 5 minutes a day to achieve real results. Invest your first 5 minutes a day in reading and sharpening your skills, and this one step can put you on the fast track to success in your life and business. Many masters and experts have shared their wisdom through stories; learning from these experienced leaders by reading their words is how you, too, can achieve personal and professional transformation. Success is achieved by getting into action immediately and applying the principles learned. Applied knowledge leads to success. But of course success isn’t as easy as this. Success is built on hard work, failures, stumbles and “Aha moments” that lead us to where. And that is certainly the case with todays guest who began her real estate career developing residential lots with the Trammel Crow Company in Dallas, Texas. She then worked in commercial real estate with The Staubach Company in the Washington, DC Metro area. Before moving to northern Virginia, and completing a Masters Degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Her BA is from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri – her hometown. Through the HBC Group, she then launched Community Charity Champions to raise funds for local non-profit groups and was awarded by the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce for the Social Corporate Responsibility Award for 2012. So this lady has hustled, and worked her way to where she is now able to see that just five minutes a day can make all the difference. But how did she discover the five minute rule? And where do people go wrong? Not being intentional with their actions, or simply being to hurried to actually make the right decisions? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Karen Briscoe Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Karen Briscoe such as: Why it is so important to start with five minutes a day to focus on health, mindset, fitness whatever you want. But it helps you become intentional with your actions. Karen talks about how the book becoming real was as much as a surprise to her than anything else she has done in her life. The dots joined up and presented her with the opportunity We talk about how people always use a lack of time as the reason for not doing something. However we all have the same time, the question is do you want to do it or not? and lastly…. Why Karen believes that action will help you find out so much quicker if something is working or not. Dont try to double guess, just do.

Personal Finance Expert Pete Matthew Shows Us How To Sort Out The Money

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who quite frankly I should have invited onto the show years ago.

He has been on my radar for awhile, but for some reason or not has not been given the opportunity to join up  his dots. He is a man who has blended so many vitally important skills being used in the online world today into a rocking and rolling business.

He is a Financial Planner, Podcaster, Video Blogger, Social Media Trainer. Managing Director of Jacksons Wealth Management, and best of all can teach us how to take control of our cash in ways that simply are life changing. As he says "I am a Certified Financial Planner and Chartered Financial Planner providing fee-based holistic financial planning advice in Penzance, West Cornwall. I am also an award-winning podcaster and video blogger. My passion is to spread the word that anyone can take control of their personal finances. I am fulfilling this passion via my financial education website and podcast, MeaningfulMoney. Through video, podcasting and social media I am reaching thousands of people every week with my simple financial planning message I set out to provide simple, accessible financial planning information to the masses, and decided that video might be a good way to do this, and through trial and error, built a site full of basic instructional video. Through my work with this site, I was awarded IFALife's Social Media Financial Adviser of the Year award 2010 and I won the Professional Adviser Financial Education award in both 2011 and 2012. I also received the Scottish Widows award for Industry Innovation in 2014, and was named UK Podcast of the Year in 2015. This is great stuff, and will of course make a great episode. So what made him continue through the trial and error stages of video content creation, when most people would have said "I'll just do what I am already doing...its easier?" And where do people go wrong with their money issues? Not looking after the money they already have, or being unaware of what is available to them out there in the big wide world? Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Pete Matthew. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Peter Matthew such as: How he started with the concept of his podcast as simply something to do as he fancied it.....and little by little has turned it into a monster. Why so many people can start a podcast, but in fact so many podcasters should actually be stopped from doing it and the reasons why. Pete shares how he managed to find the right business partners to hep him scale the business, and why he blended friends and business (which so many people are frightened off). and lastly…. We share the top three steps for getting your accounting system in place when you start creating a new business. And they are not as hard as they might seem at all.

Book Launches can be a nightmare, but not with the book launch king on your side.

Today’s guest is a special man to have on today’s episode, which is the official 500th interview that I have recorded. Not of course the 500th show we have released, but the 500th time that I have sat down with a mover and shaker to record an interview for the show. And what makes it even more special is this guy was the first interviewee that I ever recorded with nearly two years ago. Yep, when I was nothing more than a man with a dream to become a podcaster, with no profile, confidence, social platform, then if it wasn’t for him then there was a good chance that the show wouldn’t be around today. So send all your complaints to him as he could have nipped it all in the bud right at the very beginning Now on that first episode we talked about how he had left the military with a desire to travel the world and create a business for himself on his own terms. How he would sit on his bed in his baracks and start creating something that he could show to the world and be proud off. But wow, hasn’t it all changed since we last spoke, as it now seems that not only does he have the belief in what he can achieve, but also the world does too. As he is creating products, podcasts, books and income faster and faster. Such as the Publishers’ Empire, a comprehensive publishing training program, community and book launch platform, which holds over 100 HD training videos, a private, 24/7 forum, weekly small group coaching, exclusive expert interviews with today’s top self-publishers, marketers, and more, copy-and-paste book marketing and sales scripts, dozens of book templates, and much, much more. And those three last words are the key to his increasing success “Much, much more” He is seeing the world differently. He is acting differently And he is playing to his super talents, and where he lacks, finding the super talents of others to deliver much much more. So when did it really start to speed up and in the words of the comedian Steve Martin “He become so good that he couldn’t be ignored any more” And when he looks back at the version of himself, sitting on his army bed, was he close to what he wanted to be, or is that now a distant version of what he now wants to become? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots for the second time with the one and only Mr Tom Morkes. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty subjects as: Why in his opinion it is so important to invest in the initial effort to growing a business and not taking short cuts to success. Why his Dad still thinks it’s time for him to go out and get a real job (He has employees now Mr Morkes Senior…this is a real job!) How he travelled around the world building his business, but now has found a home base in Aspen Colorada where he is creating his strategic launch businesses Why mindset is so important to build as quickly as possible, as you cannot hold the belief of others unless you hold your own belief in yourself. And lastly………. Why Tom’s children will have such an opportunity to create their own lives and income, as their Dad will instil a respect for entrepreneurship from the start.

Break The Rules To Make Success In Your Life - Fast!

Today's episode of Join Up Dots, has been inspired by a lovely lady named Amy O'Brien. Amy connected with us via Facebook after seeing a video that was posted by David Ralph the host of Join Up Dots. Amy, mentioned that she was desperate to leave her life in finance and would like nothing more than to create a life coach business but is struggling to overcome the mental roadblock of getting the business off the ground. She feels that she needs qualifications She needs a track record of success. She thinks she needs everything to be lined up ready to rock. But of course as we see everyday on Join Up Dots, and this is the whole theme of the show, you make it up as you go along. You start your business and build the experience as you go. Nothing and I mean nothing can replace experience. So in this episode of Join Up Dots, we not only answer this problem, but we also tackle another quite unusual question posed by a listener in Australia. "Good morning David and everybody at join up dots. Thank you so much for creating the amazing Join Up Dots and all the episodes. The guests that you have on are quite simply, eclectic, inspiring and motivational. What I love about Join Up Dots is even though the guest may have been on other podcasts, the information you draw out of them is the kind of stuff that I want to hear. So a question for you if you would be kind enough to answer it David on one of these shows? I started an online business at about the same time I guess that you started Join Up Dots, selling surfing equipment and diving apparatus. The business has grown to$ 250000 turnover per year and has left me with a lifestyle that I could only dream about. My question to you is after all the hustle, after all the struggle I've now found the dreamlife a bit flat. I thought being retired at age 36 would be the dream but now I'm wondering what to do with myself. Of course I could start another business but I feel that I would just be in the same position again do you have any suggestions Thank you Sam Logan Gold Coast Australia.

Simplicity can be so hard to create in business, unless you know todays guest.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who is passionate about business, helping people, but also having a life away from business. And that my friends is so important, as business is important but not at the sacrifice of our own lives and happiness. She is an entrepreneur, business strategist, and a marketing mentor to coaches, authors, and speakers and also the founder of the Simplicity Circle, whose mission is to help entrepreneurs succeed and grow, while keeping their business simple. Milana came from Soviet Ukraine 25 years ago as a classical musician with zero knowledge of the business world, and has built her million-dollar coaching business from home part time, while raising her two children. And if you think that this was all some amazing masterplan then think again, as she began her career  teaching music theory and history to 3-5 graders in a specialty music school in Kiev, Ukraine. Followed by a quick stint in an Insurance company, and then working as a web designer before starting her own business.   She did the work that she thought she would love before finding the one that appears to light her up inside bigtime. She is the creator of Recurring Revenue Revolution, author of “Coaching Millions,” co-founder of JV Insider Circle, and inventor of telesummit. She constantly strives to stay on the cutting edge in the coach, author, speaker space, and when she’s not working on her business, she writes music and enjoys Latin ballroom dancing. So how has she managed to blend a super successful business, whilst still being their for the kids and herself? And has she always managed to get the balance right, or like most of us ploughed into burnout before seeing the light? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Milana Leshinsky Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Milana Leshinsky such as: Why simplicity in business is such a key part to the success of all businesses. Relax into the process and see where it takes you. How Milana never once went to coaching school, although that never stopped her being a mentor to other coaches. Don't be held back by qualifications...can you solve the problems of your clients? and lastly…. Why its so important to find the systems in you business which will allow you to walk away from it. Nobody wants to create a monster in their lives.

Are you in your comfort zone, or out of it?

Well that is what we discuss in todays episode with my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview.

He is a Professor at Brandeis University’s International Business School, with a joint appointment in the Department of Psychology. He received his Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and M.A. in Psychology from Harvard University. He also holds a Master’s Degree in International Affairs from Columbia University and a B.A. in International Affairs from Brown University. Which is all very impressive of course, but what we love about our guest, and why we are about to talk to him on the show is his personal mission He helps people develop the insights and courage necessary to act outside their personal and cultural comfort zones when doing important, but challenging, tasks in work and life. He is the author of the new book Reach with Penguin Random House about acting outside your comfort zone – why it’s so hard, how we avoid doing it, and how to be more successful at it. So why is it that the world is willing to dream big, but then unwilling to take the kind of action that makes it happen? And are there small steps that we can all take to achieve the kind of life we want, or do we have to just jump and hope for the best? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Professor Andy Molinsky Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Andy Molinsky such as: Why we are generally frightened to do the things that then start to interest us the most. We can work our way around the fear by increasing our knowledge in that subject. Andy explains how most people will have a roadblock in their lives that can be overcome by finding the benefit within the task. and lastly…. How so many people will struggle with transferring their personal skills across borders due to their upbringing. What they are totally comfortable with can suddenly seem very different in another country.

Todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview, is Dov Baron an Elite Mind Strategist specializing in the Psychology of High Performance Leadership. He serves as a mentor and adviser to corporate, creative and personal leaders. His company Baron Mastery Institute is the only resource for training tomorrow’s leaders in the implementation of “The C.O.R.E Affluence System for Leadership”. Being born in the UK in the late 1950’s, even as a child he became fascinated with the undercurrent of human psyche. By the time he was twenty-one he had left his home country to travel and study many spiritual philosophies under a variety of spiritual masters. In June 1990 while free climbing in British Columbia, at approximately 120 feet, he reached for a rock that dislodged a bigger rock. This rock hit him in the face and sent him hurling onto the jagged rocks below. It was a tragic moment, a moment that might have ended his life, and in fact, in some ways it did. Now he describes that moment like this, “On that day I fell 120 feet from a self-imposed pedestal and landed on my ego.” It was the end of the person he had been and in many ways the birth of “The Accidental Guru.” I love this story, even before we have started the show, as it proves that there is no right time to start something, other than now. It’s you that makes the decision to embrace your true self, and not the version of yourself that is being shown to the world. And our guest is doing just that and through his books, coaching, and leadership blog he is doing just that. So what was the person like before the accident, and does he look back with fondness or frustration as to the path he was on? And is this mission one that he feels led to do, almost a mission bigger than himself? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Dov Baron

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who is known as one of the top Online Marketers in Australia, and thrives on teaching people, and delivering targeted leads to his customers. He started with his own computer support business in 2003, and then moved to online businesses and has been working from home full time since 2008. During that time he has  became a top 100 Clickbank affiliate, earning commision on automatic pilot. However it hasn't always been plain sailing as a couple of setbacks he has dealt with over the years included having his Google Adwords account suspended (90% decrease in income overnight!), and his Youtube account also (hundreds of videos and traffic and sales gone overnight). So how did he get past those "Oh my god, why is this happening to me...?" moments that we all have to deal with as we build the dream? Well we will find out, but he has certainly done just that, as he is back on top (where his efforts deserve) And now he has pivoted and helps businesses create lead generation campaigns on Facebook and Google that bring in at least a 5:1 return on investment. So when he looks back on his first computer business, does he smile knowingly at what he thought was success back then? And what is the biggest lesson that he has had forced on him over the years, which he never ever lets go off as he continues to move forward with his business? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr. John Lagoudakis Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with John Lagoudakis such as: Why it is so important to have email lists that are targeted for the customer...speak to them in the language that they understand. Why John recalls going to University but hating it due to choosing an interest that just didn't light him up inside. Always go with what feels good and not what you think is good. Why all success starts with digging downwards. You cannot build success without the hole to sink your foundations - Brilliant advice. and lastly…. How Johns minimises the risk of marketing for his clients by working closely with them - before getting paid himself. He states this makes him work harder for both himself and his clients.
