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

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?

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

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.

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.
