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?

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

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?

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

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.
