My guest entrepreneur looking to build a life of freedom is Mr Stephen Rykwalder.
He is a man who has taken a huge amount of action and I suppose risk in the last five months, and that is why I just had to have him on todays show.
Unlike many of the guests that appear and chat about their success and failures, he is at the beginning of his journey to the top.
He is taking a leap of faith and setting out on his path to freedom and I am convinced that he has what is needed to achieve this aim.
To say it a different way then if heart and commitment are anything to go by, then he is certainly on his way to where he wants to be.
You see “Join Up Dots” isn’t just about bringing you the superstars that have been there and done it, we want to share the kind of stories that will inspire all our listeners to take control of your lives.
And sometimes that is people who are in the early stages, struggling to get things off the ground, and trying their hardest to build a future for themselves.
Our guest decided that he had to try to create just that, his own future, and for the last five months has set out on a path which I guess was pure sink and swim.
With only enough money to cover his expense for those five months, he quit his corporate job, turned on his computer, and set to work.
And day after day since then he has been doing everything he can to earn enough to remain free from corporate America.
It has been a learning curve built on pure desire and passion Well has he done it, has he gained the freedom he wants?
Let’s find out his website is called Five Months To Freedom and he is the one and only super entrepreneur Stephen Rykwalder.

Some people are born to make money.
Others are born to provide value to others.
Our guest today was born to do both.
From his early days in school, today's entrepreneur joining us on the Join Up Dots Steve Jobs business interview, knew how to hustle, zigging whilst others zagged, zoning in on opportunities whilst others looked the other way.
He made money as a young man, and knew that this was the way he wanted his life to be.
But life in school is I suppose “Childs play” compared to what is in store when the high school bell rings for the last time, and your thrust out into the big wide world to fend for yourself.
Our guest knew this and before even leaving high school, was creating a path that would lead him to where he is today.
By enrolling into an MLM course, he learnt the skills of rapport building and developed the ability to create connections with people from all forms of life.
This is probably the most important skill that any entrepreneur could hope to have.
But although a huge step in the right direction, he was making very little money, so knew he had to take a step into the unknown and accept a level of risk that he hadn’t before.
This risk came when he realised that there was freedom to go for the opportunities that were waiting in real estate, and before long, with a huge list of tenants paying him rent from properties he owned, he was a paper millionaire.
Not bad for someone only in the 20’s.
However the phrase “Learn to expect the unexpected” could have had been a very useful mantra to have, as boom time literally disappeared overnight.
In 2008 the real estate crash occurred, and forced our guest into bankruptcy.
Despondent, depressed and broke, he had two choices..
One to say goodbye to the good life and settle into a life of “What If's” and “Broken Dreams”
Or he could fight back, and restore himself to previous glories.
And in today’s episode we will discuss just how someone could find the mental strength to go once more, after life had been so cruel and indiscriminate with its finger of fate.
So it is with great pleasure that I introduce you to today’s guest entrepreneur……..Nick Ruiz.

Todays interview is with an entrepreneur, author, and motivational powerhouse.
Yes she is a remarkable lady forsure.
Not content with helping thousands of people break free from their corporate jobs and start their own businesses, she is also an entrepreneur,coach and speaker who speaks from the heart with a passion that cannot be rivaled.As she says:"Entrepreneurship at its heart is aligning your purpose for being on earth with a business idea so compelling that you simply must do it, despite the fears that hold you back."
And those fears that we all have, do not seem to have held her back at all….or perhaps they have.From a young age, she has taken a path that perhaps was unexpected.Traveling the world, learning to speak four languages, and even teaching martial arts to former gang members, she has a story that needs to be told.In 2014 she has just released her latest book "Body of Work Finding the Thread that Ties Your Career Together", which follows on from her other bestseller "Escape From Cubicle Nation". Although if you have just stumbled across this show in five years time, she has just released her 17th book, and been played by Meryl Streep in the film of her life.It seems to me that the ability to overcome ones fear and create, instigate, and encourage is core to our guests success in life.If we can all tackle things head on like she has then…….we all have a chance to live a life that we dreamt it would be.
So join with me as I introduce, the amazing, and motivational Pamela Slim

Todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs packed inspiration Join Up Dots podcast interview, is someone who from the first moment that I heard his story, I just knew that I had to have him on the show.And boy aren't I glad that he said yes.A family man,and a dreamer,for over 12 years he followed the path that he felt was right.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 fulfill 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.
He needed to make his dreams for freedom come true, but still support the family that he loved.How did he do it?Well you're about to find out as we start joining up the dots with todays guest..the amazing super entrepreneur Kimanzi Constable

Our guest today joining us on the steve Jobs inspiration packed Join Up Dots interview is someone who doesn't realise what he can't do.
If you give him an obstacle or challenge he doesn't just go round it, he literally smashes it to pieces.
During his college football career he led the way in unassisted tackles in a season and set an all time record for most unassisted tackles in a game (21). And this was from a guy who everyone thought was a little bit small to make his mark on the game
To be honest I'm from England so that means nothing to me, but it sounds very impressive. What is even more impressive, and this time I can understand it is how he took these athletic performances, will to win, and inability to know his limitations, and created a way of tackling things head on in business and in his own life too. In August 2010, our guest created Athletic Capital, an organisation that was founded through the support of many people wanting to discover true meaning in their life as well as inspire positive change in those around them.
Once you start developing the freedom in your own life to create positive momentum, you can start to believe you can tackle greater and more challenging tasks and with this desire for positive change, our guest alongside Athletic Capital commenced their first international mission:, Mission Kilimanjaro, a quite amazing adventure that made it possible for Kyle Maynard, a quadruple amputee, to crawl the 19,341 ft to the summit without assistance Bringing us up to date, Athletic Capital successfully launched The Higher Purpose Project by bringing 25 human beings from 6 different countries around the world to join forces and push each other to find their true purpose in life. And of course to being even more positive change to the world So where do we start? What do we focus in on first. Well there is only one place to start and that is to introduce to you super entrepreneur himself Mr Dan Adams.

Todays guest ready to be interviewed on the Join Up Dots podcast is the author and entrepreneur Mr August Turak, who has had a life that can only be described as a bit different.
Not many people get to have the experiences in business and life that he has, after all who gets to study business with a bunch of Trappist monks?
I didn’t even know that monks studied business, and more importantly were extremely successful at it.
But our Mr Turak knows, and it was detailing these experiences and insights that allowed him to pen the bestseller “Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks: One CEO’s Quest for Meaning and Authenticity.”
He has the freedom of thought to study their brilliant business methods to create a huge success story of his own.
But that is just a small part of his story, and with a background of sales, marketing, determination, spirituality, mindset, MTV and the belief that “It is in your own self interest to forget your self interest” he is someone who would make a perfect guest for multiple shows.
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only award winning, and hugely motivational – August Turak

My guest today enjoying the Join Up Dots Steve Jobs inspired interview, is a man who many might say simply ducked out of his responsibilities and walked away from everything that was making him unhappy.
I would never say that.
A trained engineer Adam, decided that happiness was the most important state of all, and one that he could quite simply engineer by focusing solely on the things that he knew would make him happy.
He wanted a life that was full of freeom, motivation and inspiring the world to be happy.
Incorporating Volunteering, Learning, Teaching, Storytelling and Empowerment he has created a life that is nothing short of inspirational.
As his website The Happiness Plunge states “He has been Happy and homeless for 918 days”
Being happy day after day sounds like a pretty good way to be to me.
So do you have the desire for freedom in your own life?
Would you like the abiity create a lifestyle on your own terms?
Well this is the interview for you and therefore I would like to welcome to the show, as we start to Join Up Dots, the Happy Nomad himself Adam Pervez.
Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy
