Entrepreneur Success Stories By Join Up Dots, Motivation, Confidence, & Business Coaching To Start Your Online Career

Todays guest is a lady who claims that she has never had a bad job, even though she spent several semesters helping students cut open and poke around in cats and pigs.

Yes, I think that is the first time that I have had that fact in an introduction.

But that isn't one of those facts that define her, but the fact that this lady knows how to hustle certainly does.

When it comes to getting the work done, she is willing to put in the hours, and believes wholeheartedly that the only way to reap the rewards that your life deserves is by taking the old leap of faith.

And that is what she has done, she leapt and kept flexing the hustle muscle everyday since leaving her corporate gig and going it alone.

And with a history of working in a sports marketing company, where she worked with many Fortune 500 clients, starting with IMG and most recently leading the marketing efforts for an agency owned by NASCAR driver, she knew how to get a product to market.

But its ok, knowing how to do this if someone else is footing the bill.

But what if you have the idea for a product and have to get it into the hands of the consumers yourself?

Well, in 2011 she used her branding, marketing and sales experience to launch such a product and Slawsa, a unique slaw-salsa hybrid condiment was born.

And within two years after launch, the product could be found on the shelves of over 5,200 stores in the U.S. and Canada with rave reviews from critics and consumers alike.

What makes her story even more fascinating, is that even though this might be deemed as a success, she was then willing to take Slawsa and drop it into ABC's Shark Tank for the sharks to fight over?

Did she get investment? Did she come out of the waters intact?

Coming originally from the South American country of Chile, our guest has set out on a path to not only create her dream life, but also to help the world find theirs too!

As the founder of “Money & You®,” and other successful financial platforms she knows and shares how we can all develop systems that will accelerate the growth of our businesses.

And what she gives us is not just manuals full of structures and systems, but a complete mind-set shift, to believe that success is ours to have.

She can rewire us all to think like multi-millionaires.

She has appeared on multiple movies, been quoted in hundreds of books, and appeared on radio and TV shows all over the world.

But how does a lady come from Chile, move to America, and create a platform of success that crosses the globe and effects students in over 65 countries?

How did todays guest learn the skills for success that allude so many people?

And that is what I want to talk about today, how someone can think big, dream big and achieve big things, when so many others get stuck before even beginning?

Is it that she took chances that other people wouldn't have taken, or simply that she was luckier than most?

Todays guest is an astonishing lady who delivers, positivity and inspiration to the world everyday of her life.

Born with ocular albinism – a condition that has made her legally blind, she managed to hide the issues with her vision until well into her 20’s from her employers, friends and I guess the world.

More amazingly, is the fact that she had been legally blind since a child, but it wasn’t until she was 17 that she actually realised it fully too.

Her parents upon finding out their newborn daughter had been born with the condition decided that they wouldn’t tell her, as they believed that it would result in both her and others placing limits on what she could achieve in life.

And so she lived with the condition, for over ten years, as she graduated and joined an international consultancy firm.

But the time came when her eyes deteriorated so much, that she could no longer hide it anymore, and the time would come to change direction, and with that direction set out to change opinions across the world.

And I love this about her story, but the realisation of what she should do next in her life came on the top of an elephant whilst travelling 1,000 miles across the country raising funds for Sight Savers.

She decided that she would create the non profit organisation Kanchi, named after that very same elephant, that aims to change the attitudes and behaviours towards people with disability by working with business leaders, helping them to see these people as assets to be developed.

And now as her star continues to shine brighter and brighter she is highly sought after as an inspirational speaker the world over.

So how do you manage from the top of an elephant to see a path that is literally life changing and have the courage to tackle it head on?

And where does she feel the most work still needs to be done, as the world accepts and embraces disability in its many forms?

Todays guest is a man who believes that one of the best ways to create an income and business is to provide massive value to everyone you meet, and he fully subscribes to the “Pay It Forward” methodology.

And when it comes to using social media he believes wholeheartedly that this is the only way to go about building your valued network too.

As he says ”I live by the pay it forward lifestyle – if you are helped, don’t help that person, instead “pay it forward” to someone else in need.

The blessing will come back to you!”

And as an expert on how to utilise LinkedIn, he has for the last ten years travelled the country advising and presenting to  eager attendees on how to make the most of this business resource, which lets be honest not many of us really know how to do for best results.

But that is just one side of his life, as with 30 years spent in PR and Marketing and a published Amazon bestseller “Linking In to Pay it Forward: Changing the Value Proposition in Social Media” he is a man on a mission.

So was this way of operating always in him, or did he come to a conclusion that this was the best way to do things?

And is he surprised at how little people actually harness the power of LinkedIn?

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

Todays guest is a lady who maybe small in size, but towers over so many people across the globe with her positivity, gungho spirit and ability to overcome huge obstacles with a smile on her face.

She calls herself the short chick with a walking stick, and for four decades, since age 7, Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and a Walking Stick have been her constant companions.

And although she took medications that helped ease the pain and allowed her to walk, those very same medications that she took to help her actually stopped her from growing.

So at the size of 4 foot 6, she now finds herself battling the limiting thoughts that are not only hard enough when they are your own thoughts, but when they come from everyone else too, are doubly difficult.

She has survived 8 complicated, nearly life-ending, record-breaking surgeries to keep her walking, and has survived the loss of both parents and other loved ones, as well as her own thoughts of suicide in childhood.

Now if that seems like this episode is going to be a grim one then think again, as with her own business, and inspirational content that helps people across the globe bringing her more and more success, it is going to be anything but.

But what is it that really light her up inside?

And how did she find the strength to keep on going, after numerous painful operations, when so many people would have resorted to playing the victim game?

And where does she see her life in the future, with so many things going on in her life?

Todays guest has a mantra in life, and one that has been tested time and time again.

“You can’t always control what happens to you, but you can always control how you respond to what happens to you.” 

But that's ok, if you have mental strength, but what if you are quote on quote a normal person who gets hit by things in life and allow them to rock them on your heels.

You savour the victim mentality and share the story of hardship and mental strife with friends and colleagues.

You go back to your home and play sad music, until you pull yourself together and go again.

But how do you learn the lessons in life, that can help you realise that like our guests mantra you can really control your life and get the better life that you deserve.

Well over the last ten years, our guest has battled two bouts of chronic illness, a terrible injury that occurred to her daughter, black mold poisoning, financial devastation including the loss of a business and home, and if that isn't bad enough then she also had to deal with post traumatic stress disorder too.

That is at least one whammy every two years.

But instead of letting it stop her progression forward our guest learnt from these life lessons, and developed the "Choose A Better Life" platform and the Amazon best seller "Choose A Better Life: Common sense For Uncommon Living.

So did she always have the mental strength, or did she go through the classic draw the curtains and hide from the world phase?

Or was it an epiphany that made her scream "I can control what happens to me"

Todays guest on the show is a man who, ill be honest when I started researching him, I thought "How the hell does he pack everything that he is doing into a day?"

If you think that you are busy, then think again, as not only is he currently the Head of English, Drama and Media Studies at an outstanding Catholic school in Hertfordshire., but he is also juggling the work of a freelance journalist.

Writing articles that regularly appear in ten industry-leading magazines that cover the automotive, aerospace, technology and travel sectors he is a man in demand.

His articles are read by over 12,000 subscribers in print, and more online, but he is even more busy than that as the author of several bestselling books "The Missing", "Life Of Sin" and "On Guard" the last blending his love and expertise of fencing.

Yes, he could challenge me to a dual at dawn, as for seven years he was a Karl was a competitive fencer. Fencing is in his blood.

So how does he pack so much into his life, and still find that urge for consistent creativity?

And if he could choose just one of his talents to do only, which one would he choose?

Todays guest is a man who states that he is a Christ Follower, CEO of Author Media, Professional Speaker, Podcaster, Wordpress Lover, Marketer, Political Trouble Maker, & Homeschool Graduate.

Which means that the conversations today can literally go anywhere, and he will have an opinion on it....so what shall I start with first...religion or politics?

Well let's start with the fact that since building his first website at the age of thirteen, our guest has been fascinated with communication whether its in the written word or by presenting his message in award winning presentations across America.

He believes in connecting with people across the globe, and so it wasn't too much of a surprise to see that the early party of his career led heavily towards directing people on the political campaign trail.

For several years he assisted political hopefuls to run their campaign at grass roots level by recruiting, training and organising volunteers to knock on doors and convince those voters that they met, that their boss was the way forward.

But it was when he took this love of influencing and communicating, and combined it with his love of wordpress and website building that his career really started gaining speed.

And in 2008 he created Umstattd Media focusing on social media consulting, web design, and helping authors and businesses get the most out of the web.

This later changed to Castle Media Group and the rest as they is history.

So what it is it about communication that really lights him up inside, and helps him explode the potential opportunities all around him?

And does he have any design to go full circle and bring his skills back into the political environment?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Thomas Umstattd Jr.

Todays guest is a man who seems to have an absolute passion for building stuff.

As he says "I have been writing and commercializing software since childhood. My goals are the same now as they were then: to solve difficult, practical problems with software"

With a talent for writing code for computer programmes, and an eye for potential start-ups he has had astonishing success.

Success that quite simply could leave him sitting on a island doing nothing for the rest of his life, due to the $700,000,000 Google paid him for the Cambridge, Mass-based ITA Software Inc.

But that is just a tiny part of what has made him who he is, as he has steadily worked on his life, his career, and projects since leaving University with a bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science.

Even before that he would grab every opportunity he could to develop his skills, and for five years between 1986 and 1991 in every school break he would work as a developer on Xenix and Mach operating systems, and then went on to co-found ITA Software in 1998.

For all you computer game lovers, also know that he was the first employee hired at the video game developer Naughty Dog, where he co-created the first two installments of the Crash Bandicoot games for PlayStation.

But for me, and this is what I want to touch on, as I like this fact very much, is he seems to have a completely opposing view to the overnight success, get rich quick practice that has taken control of the world over the last few decades.

He works slowly and steadily, building his work in almost secrecy until 100% comfortable to release to the world.

And now with his latest venture Inky, an email organising system gaining more and more interest he once again, is giving birth to something that the world is looking for, and will bring even more success.

So, are there similarities between building computer games, and business platforms?

And what does he see in the world today that he wishes that he could have built?

Podcast 180: Caitlin Zaino: An Entrepreneur Lady Who Cooks Up Delights With Her Passion For Food

Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Steve Jobs inspired podcast, is a lady who from an air conditioned hotel room in Nicaragua found her path to a future that delights her, inspires her and probably makes her struggle to keep the weight off too.

Whilst whiling away the days watching the Food Network on television, she came up with a plan that would combine her passion for foods with her delight in travel...she would become the Urban Grocer.

Traveling the world she would seek out the kind of exotic foods that each country produces and weave it into a spunky informative and fun tv programme.

But if you think that her career history is one that is linked with the media and her delight in discovering and talking about amazing foods, then think again.

Way back in 2004, she worked in a restaurant in Boston prepping hot and cold first courses during and before service, but then amazingly left and became a script writer for the Russian Premier Mikhail Gorbachev.

Yeah really, how the hell did that happen?

I can't begin to imagine, but straight after that she jumped back into the food game, and hosted a Food Radio Programme in Switzerland called "Caitlin's Kitchen".

Getting the idea?? This is one of those shows where the dots of her life are quite difficult to tie up, but it seems true to say that even as a small child, working away in her mothers kitchen, she learnt to appreciate the delights of what we can place on our dinner plates.

And that has carried throughout her adult life.

And now with her latest venture, Porter and Sail, she is combining her love of food, and travel, with her passion for helping the discerning travellers to find the best of what is out there.

The hidden gems, that can help us all be world savvy diners.

So it is with huge delight, that I bring onto the show to start joining up dots ,the one and only freedom cooking entrepreneur Caitlin Zaino
