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

Decision making is hard, especially when you dont have all the information. But todays guest is a decision making master. He is the co-founder and CEO of Hireology. His mission to help business owners make better hiring decisions using predictive data and innovative technology. What this means, as far as I can see, and I am sure that our guest will tell me I am right or wrong on the show is instead of sitting down with someone and using the gut feeling of "I like this person, I could see them doing a good job in this company" you attract the right people by using cutting edge technology. Sending job positions through to mobile phones, attracting potential employees to your own bespoke company job board, wannabe employees do a series of tailored tests before even stepping foot in your business. You have the ability to take much of the manpower away from finding the good guys. And with old style hiring processes sitting at a miserable 50% success rate in finding the type of employees and company really wants then...you can see his mission to change things is needed across the world. Now personally you can see that today's guest has always been driven to change things for the better, he is nothing but driven (and of course very very busy it seems) After living in suburban Atlanta for 10 years, his family moved to the suburbs of Chicago in 1990 where he graduated from Crystal Lake South High School in 1994. He then received his Bachelor of Arts degree with a double-major in History and Communications from the University of Illinois  before earning a master's degree in business administration from DePaul University, where he serves on the Board of Advisors for the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center. In  2010, he even placed himself as a Republican nominee and challenged for the Illinois Senate, representing the 7th district in the Chicago area. So where did he ignite his passion for changing the futures of people, through either job recruitment or in the wider political sense? And did he struggle like most entrepreneurs to get the ball rolling, or was the need he was aiming to fill simply crying out for his skills? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Adam Robinson. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Adam Robinson  such as: Adam recalls the times in his life when he had no money, scrabbled around for two cents in his life, and shares why it is was so fun to be creative with his decisions at this time. We talk about the times when a business goes wrong, and why more often than not looking back you can clearly see the mistakes that can be learned from. Why Adam is a firm believer that there are no decisions that define your life. Make the decision, move forward and learn from what went wrong and right. and lastly…. We discuss how even the greatest product is quite simply a dead duck without marketing involved, and why this doesn't need to cost a lot of money.

decision making is what makes a life.

Personal Trainer Toni Carey - How To Create An Online Trainer Program In Fitness

Todays guest Personal Trainer joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who has a huge mission in her life. And as we see all the time, when someone has a mission in their lives, they start influencing more and more people across the world to buy into that mission too. And that is certainly the case with todays guest, who is co-founder of Black Girls Run, a grassroots organization that encourages and inspires African-American women to live a healthy lifestyle. While currently serving at the helm of Black Girls RUN!, she is also a freelancer writer for Zelle (a Runner’s World publication) and a blog ambassador for Brooks Running. She has been named one of the “30 Black Bloggers You Should Know” by The Root, Essence Magazine’s and recently received Toyota’s Standing O-Vation Award presented at Oprah’s 2014 “The Life You Want” Weekend in Atlanta. But if you think this lady has all the time in the world to get these recognitions then think again, as most of this began when she was still a fulltime employee. She had the hustle muscle, and was willing to put in the out of hours effort that was required to to become the online trainer that she is today. So with a manta of “Do What You Love. Love What You Do.” does she find that the majority of people go “Yes, that’s what I want” and then do nothing about making that happen at all? And does she see what she has built so far just being the tip of the iceberg. and the true vision of what being an online trainer can become is starting to truly reveal itself? Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays free podcast, with the one and only Toni Carey

 

Show Highlights

 

During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Toni Carey such as: How she remembers being really productive at High School, and loved nothing more than having her fingers in as many pies as she can..taste testing the future.

Why she reflects on the fact she has never worked in a job for more than two years, and believes that we must surrender to the situations that life throws at us.

How she recalls being presented to Oprah Winfrey and being shocked when the main lady said “Hi I’m Oprah”….er, I think I know who you are she thought.

And lastly…. How she sees that the big successes in life have come her way almost by accident, and when she forces the issue, things never go as well for her.

Todays show is a solo show where your host talks about persistence, and how this is probably the most singularly most important thing you can possess in your life. Persistence is probably one of the most admirable characters a person can possess.  It’s the ability to be determined to do or achieve something regardless of any setbacks. Now everyone has the ability to set goals, and plans in their life. They set everything up to work perfectly (at least on paper) But once they get into the building process then they find that the words on the bit of paper aren't really working. There are obstacles appearing that they could never have planned for. And that is why persistence is such a vitally important skill that you just have to develop in your own lives. 6 Ways to Develop Persistence The most interesting thing about a postage stamp is the persistence with which it sticks to its job. – Napoleon Hill Developing persistence is a master skill to success.  It is easier to relax and do nothing, or just live in our comfort zone, rather than face the uncertainty and discomfort of sailing thru our goals.  Plus, the idea of failure and hardship is unbearable. But if you want to create change in your life and achieve success, now is the time to develop and master persistence.  Here are six (6) ways to help you develop persistence: 1.  Identify Your Wants and Desires If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.  – Lawrence J. Peter Before you can develop persistence and eventually achieve success, you need to first identify your wants or desires.  You can do this by simply writing down specifically all the things you want to have or accomplish.  List down all your desires and wants, no matter how impossible they are to achieve in the moment. 2.  Determine Your Motivation Motivation comes from a deep reason why we want to achieve or have something.  If you know why you’re doing what you’re doing, it gives you more energy to keep moving. For an instance, you want to publish a book.  Creating a book takes time and patience.  If you don’t have enough motivation, a reason why you need to publish the book, you probably can never finish it.  But if you’re motivated by the thought of influencing and teaching millions of readers thru your words, only then will you keep pushing yourself to work on finishing the book. 3.  Outline Your Definite Action Step Identifying your wants or desires speaks of what you want to achieve.  Determining your motivation shows the reasons why you want to achieve what you want.  Outlining your definite action step is necessary to know how you will be able to achieve what you want. When you know how to get what you want, it makes it easier to achieve it.  To know how, it pays to do some research and planning of what needs to be done on your part.  Be specific on each step you need to take.  Identify at least two (2) ways and plans on how you can achieve your goals. 4.  Keep a Positive Mental Attitude The road to success is not easy, in fact, it’s challenging, this is why only few succeeds.  There will be countless times you will be face with defeat and failures that if you are weak, you’ll be succumbing to negative thoughts of fears and doubts. In order to develop persistence and eventually succeed in your endeavor, always maintain a positive mental attitude, regardless of situation.  Keep your thoughts focused on taking action towards your goals.  Avoid negative thoughts and feelings for it will ruin your concentration and persistence. 5.  Build Your Mastermind Group Mastermind Group composes of people who can help you succeed towards your goal.  Choose carefully who you will trust as part of your mastermind group.  If possible, include only those who can give you unbiased judgments and who has positive mental attitude.  You can’t afford wasting your time listening to cynical advices and pessimist people.  These types of people won’t help you succeed; instead, they will drown your energy that can eventually lead to failure. 6.  Develop Discipline and Habit All your goal-setting and planning will go to waste if you won’t be able to develop discipline and good habit. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment. – Jim Rohn There will be a lot of hindrances that will stop you from moving towards your goal, and without proper discipline, it will be easy for you to sail away.  Upholding discipline and good habits can help you stay in the course, even despite difficulties.

Online Courses are what the world are delivering nowadays. And my guests today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview are a couple that know how to build online courses better than most people. They are a couple who quite simply, stopped looked at their life and then made it what they want. And with the greatest respect to both of them, and we will discuss this in the interview they are what you would call normal. A normal couple, with a normal lifestyle, normal kids but an extraordinary way of making decisions and enough of them to make things work the way they want. They are the owners of the Flipped Lifestyle business, where through their own mistakes, successes and consistency they now teach people the route to success in their own business. They teach how to create businesses that work around a family instead of the other way. As they say "In 2012, on a rare day off work, Shane stumbled across a podcast about regular people changing their lives through online business. We started brainstorming about how we could do this too, and started a couple of websites just to see what happened. No one could have prepared us for what happened next. In just a few short months, we were able to make thousands of extra dollars each month through online business. Just one year later, we surpassed the five figure mark in online sales for a single month. When our August 2013 sales surpassed $36,000, we decided it was time to stop working for someone else and start living for our family." And now with sales in excess of one million dollars all earned online, they travel the globe, in their shorts and sneakers, smiling broadly from ear to ear, as there community of wannabe entrepreneurs grows their smiles with them. So looking back on their lives as hard working teachers, do they think that the ability to change a life so dramatically is more down to mindset or talent? And was it really a rocket ship to success they launched, with a doubt that it would fail? Or did they go through the same issues as the rest of us? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Shane & Jocelyn Sams Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Shane & Jocelyn Sams  such as: Why freedom means so much to both Shane and Jocelyn certainly more than money can ever do, which is a surprise to so many people that they meet. Jocelyn shares why both her and Shane decided to become teachers, and how they were actually quite content in their lives, but now see that they had given control of their lives away. Why you don't have to be an expert to sell online products, instead you actually only have to present it to the people on the road behind you. and lastly…. Shane talks about the first 11 cents that he earnt online and how he was so excited he literally jumped out of bed and jumped up and down knowing his life had changed forever.

Dream jobs is what everyone wants, and my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is the founder and publisher of Mac’s List. helping people find the dream jobs that they will love. His platform Mac’s List is now the premier resource for connecting passionate, creative professionals to meaningful and creative work throughout Oregon and Washington, with a growing monthly outreach to more than 80,000 people. Prior to moving to there in 1991, he lived in Massachusetts where he was legislative and media relations director for the state Office for Refugees and Immigrants, the first public information officer for Boston’s “Big Dig,” and a researcher in former U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy’s first Congressional campaign. But this was of course a stepping stone to where he is today the recognized expert on job hunting and career management. Throughout the years our guest and his team’s mission has always remained the same: to help people find rewarding, interesting jobs that pay decent salaries and to help employers find the best possible candidates for those jobs So whether you are looking for your first dream job, a better dream job or just want to manage the direction of your career, Mac’s List offers the resources you need to make it happen. In addition to Mac's List, he also runs Prichard Communications, a registered B Corp creative agency that works with top-tier foundations, nonprofits and purpose driven brands across the country. So was this a business driven by his desire to help people change their lives or simply a gap in the market he could see needed to be filled? And where do people go wrong when looking for a job? Is it not knowing themselves well enough, or the company that they are hoping to enter? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Mac Prichard. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Mac Prichard such as: Why it is so important to be able to delegate in your business, as this is a brilliant way of scaling your business. The owner must be allowed to do what they do best. Why knowing your goals is the first thing that people need to be focused on when going for a job. Don't take the job without knowing what you want to get out of it. The second thing is looking for a company that interests you.....make sure you connect with people inside that organization to find out what its like on the inside before you ever go for the interview. and lastly…. The issue that surrounds the job market place, where 80% of jobs are never being posted to the world.  Recognise that most jobs are filled by word of mouth and start networking.

My interview today on the Join Up Dots free business podcast is a lovely lady who was kind enough to allow me to spend time with her on her own show Freedom Academies.....Turbo Charge Your Success. Now during our conversation it was clear to me that this was a lady that I needed to get on Join Up Dots, as she has a story that shows all the characteristics that we find in the succesfull. She has motivation. She has hustle And alongside her business partner Laura West, a few years ago found themselves homeless The business they ran together was going south and they were exhausted. They had no option at all but to move into two rooms in the office. They had a problem that most business owners have at one time or another. They were very good at that they did, but nobody knew about it. Thye couldnt get their talents out into the world. They started researching business growth systems, high performance ‘gurus’, wealth creation experts and all the investment strategies they could get there hands on. Within twelve months they had a property portfolio worth over $2,000,000 that they had bought with others people’s money. More importantly the income from that property was double the income from their business that they had spent years building up! They also applied all the business knowledge they had gained, transformed their business and went on to sell it! They did all of this while being homeless, using the leisure centre across the road to shower and working 80 hours per week. They were at such a rock bottom that they had the ability to create huge freedom of choice in their lives. So was it just that the dots joined up, the time became right for them to flourish? Or was it more to do with the undertanding that upskilling your knowledge is the way to go. Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only property entrepreneur Kemi Egan

So entrepreneurship seems really fun? And you want to be an entrepreneur but you are too scared hat you don't have the skills to be one? Well thats not a surprise after all. as an entrepreneur is a super powerful individual that has skills that the normal man just cant possess. They need less sleep than you and me. They don't even need to stop and eat like you and I do. They are the supreme beings, controllers of their own destiny and able to cast a shadow across the world and the rest of us. That is of course the perception of what an entrepreneur is, or at least so many people want you to think that....but it's rubbish. And entrepreneur at its heart, is someone who is willing to try to do something. Accept failure. Accept risk, and go again. These are super powers by any stretch of the imagination. These are things that we all posses, if want to posses them. They are in all of us. I'll give you an example.....and this example is going to be about me the host of Join Up Dots. When I started the show, all I could do was turn on the microphone and talk. And even that small action I had to learn. Did I call myself an entrepreneur? Of course I didn't as I didn't know the first thing about it. But I knew how to take a risk and give something a go. I knew how to minimise the downside and try to maximize the upside (in this case not spend a lot to get going, but try to make some cash as some as possible) And that is what I have done, and little by little I am making more cash and having a lovely life. Now not for one moment would I call myself an entrepreneur. What I would call myself is someone who is willing to have a go, and work hard at something. No super powers at all, just pure, down to earth work ethic and persistence. So if you dont think you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur, dont be one. Call yourself anything but give it a go, and you will be amazed at what you achieve in your life.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is with a man who first appeared on the show back on episode nine of Join Up Dots. 

As we spoke about on the first show, 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, he 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 opportunities galore 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 Ifs” and “Broken Dreams”

Or he could fight back, and restore himself to previous glories.

Well after after rebuilding his millionaire net worth he’s achieved a higher minded psychology, greater financial freedom, and full awareness of the science of creating Success From Scratch™.

He now currently teaches students across the globe how to create entrepreneurship time freedom with his program. (Alphahomeflipping.com)

And with this incredible bounce-backability he has put all his learnings and strategies into his second published book, Success From Scratch™ Mental Strategies for Success in a Survival of the Fittest Environment available now at Amazon.

So is he truly at a place now, where the hustle has been replaced with fun and enjoyment, or can he never leave behind the “What if i lose it all again” mentality?

And why did he feel the need to put his knowledge into words again, when there are many many such similar books sitting covered in dust on the book shelves of the world?

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

 

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Nick such as:

Why feelings are so important to be aware off as you proceed to build your own future. Excitement is key to pointing the way to the gold.

Nick shares how  monetizing your passion could well be dangerous and should be considered fully before entering into its pursuit.

Why so many people fail to celebrate or reward themselves after achieving goals, and why this is so a huge failure for continued success.

and lastly….

Nick and I discuss the power of rough draft moves and how he believes this is the key to all success.

Doing the impossible can quite often seem a step too far for most people. But my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who seems loves doing the impossible more than anything. He is kind of normal from the outside, but did deeper and you can see a world changing mission. One side of the fence is a coach, and a very successful one at that. He has has helped clients create multimillion pound investments from nothing, he has coached CEO’s to build thriving companies, philanthropists to set up charities, couples to conceive and lovers to start fantastic relationships. He has helped the intrepid to change jobs, change careers and even change countries. He has helped entrepreneurs to find their dream companies and senior executives to earn promotion to the Board. He is dedicated to serving extraordinary people in recreating their lives beyond recognition. Which is of course powerful stuff for sure but then you see the standout journey that he is on. At least it is for us at Join Up Dots. In 2015 he created the impossible busting Chicken shit foundation, which was created to honour and fulfill the legacy of Rafael Bejarano Rangel, who was tragically killed in Egypt, to bring empowerment, education, and transformation to all people through music, laughter and compassion, and to help re-awaken waning or lost indigenous traditions and support their sustainability and survival through the youth of the world. They accomplish their mission by enrolling the support and voices of Chicken-Shits (ie. those who need to believe in themselves more, even if it’s just at certain times with certain people, and who would benefit from taking stock of the gifts and talents they posses that the world is hungry for, and then sharing accordingly.) Our current projects include building schools in Liberia West Africa and for a community in Mexico as well as youth empowerment and preservation of indigenous traditions among youth around the world. They do this by fund raising, mentoring, providing leadership and raising awareness and through building a global community. Big stuff is going on in this mans life so it is a delight to have him on the show. But what made this English man do something, very un-english, and peer his head over his own garden fence and start to make a difference to others across the world? And does he look back and think, I wished I had started this earlier or did it appear at the perfect time for him to be able to achieve his aims? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Simon Crowe

Sleep and getting enough sleep can be such a huge issue for us all.

Which is why Christine Hansen built a whole business around getting sleep into our lives.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who the majority of the world need to get into contact with at sometime or another.

She is a sleep expert who over the last years has positioned herself as the go to person to help you drift off into a pleasant, restful and recharging sleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. As she says “I understand that sleeping, while on sleep medication isn’t really sleeping. I understand that falling asleep, but then having to lie awake for hours in the middle of the night isn’t really sleeping, and I understand that waking up just as tired as when you went to bed isn’t really sleeping either” So hands up….come on people be honest “How many of you have fallen into one of these sleep patterns over the last few years?” Yep, I know that I have, so how has our guest managed to find the solution to something that plagues all of us at one time or another. And the answer is, she has been on a journey of self discovery, upskilling and putting herself and her knowledge out there Starting her journey as an English teacher in Luxembourg, she had a pretty standard career for a few years until she got to the point when her interest in corporate coaching and sleep patterns became too much to ignore. And she took the leap of faith, leaving her career in education in 2015 to start something new and inspiring. And since then with a huge amount of hustle, commitment, perseverance and of course struggle she has built her hugely successful business coaching successful and career driven women (and inspiring men) on how to get a solid nights’ sleep allowing them to wake up refreshed, with more energy, and ready to tackle their legacy and personal life. So how has she managed to do all this whilst still getting a good nights sleep herself? And is it as simple as learning to switch off form everything that needs to be done, or much more than that? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only, my favourite sleep expert ever Christine Hansen Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Christine Hansen such as: Why its so important for us all to find the best time to create our work. Do you need an early start, or work late. Its up to you to find the time that works. How focusing in on her spider senses is such an important way to operate in business, as more often than not the bad decisions full to the wayside. How she knew that her sleep business was a great idea simply by demand. Every business needs to solve a problem for people, so look around and find a solution. How sleeping is a habit that we can create, so we must look at everything we do on our way to bed to see if it is adding to the problem. and lastly…. How she feels that her job is a secret boyfriend in her life that her husband knows all about…and she want to run and spend time with it as much as she can.
