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.

Today's guest is someone who used to call himself an RNT.A Recovering Negative thinker.Well actually he considered himself a lot worse than that, but kids could be listening so well leave it as that.His life was not good, his relationships weren't working, and all in all things were not in a good place.But he decided that it didn't have to remain that way.He realised that the life that he was leading and experiencing, was actually being directed by the thoughts that he allowed to pass through his mind on a daily basis.He was actually creating the miserable existence that he was living.But could he get out of it?Could he rewire his brain to focus in on the positive aspects of his life, therefore changing direction on the path he had been leading for decades, in effect taking responsibility for his own happiness.Well, with a huge "Yes", our guest not only did that but now calls himself "the Mantor" as he helps men from across the world to focus in on their negative actions and reprogram the way they operate on a daily basis.So let's introduce to you the only and only, "Mantor" himself....Steven Shewach

Podcast 4: August Turak: Author Shares Entrepreneurial Business Career Advice From Monks

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

My guest today is the entrepreneur and publisher Mr Tom Morkes who joins us on the very first episode of “Join Up Dots” with the title of a man who quite simply changed my life

I don’t think that there are many people alive that I could say that about.

But strangely enough until today I have never met him or spoke to him live either.

Tom spent the beginning of his childhood in the Chicagoland and West Michigan areas, and then with all his Morkes siblings…three brothers and three sisters gained his education at the United States Military Academy at West Point NY.

Upon graduating he decided that there was a further step to go in his military life and was deployed to Iraq as a gun truck platoon leader.

You might have thought after so many years in an organised, structured environment such as the military, he would cling to a safe, organised future.

But our guest thought otherwise and set off on entrepreneurial path that has seen him write three books, become the president of his own publishing company, and generally having a kick ass life.

He travels the world with his lovely wife Courtney, his trusty laptop, and now on today’s podcast interview shares with us, the fears, achievements and success that has made up his life.

I would like to welcome to show the one and only In The Trenches Tom Morkes

 

For more information on Tom's podcast go to:

Podcast:

In The Trenches With Tom Morkes

Description: 

In The Trenches with Tom Morkes tells the story of entrepreneurs, writers, artists, inventors, warriors, and leaders who are building disruptive, innovative businesses, who are doing hard, creative work each and every day, and who are impacting the people who matter (their customers, readers, supporters, and fans). These no-bulls*** interviews cut through the fluff and go right into the mindset of what it takes to be a creator, battle scars and all. Listen to In The Trenches and youll hear from best-selling authors, startup founders, people who turned their art into full-fledged businesses, self-made millionaires, and much more. Just some of the subjects weve covered in the past: how to start a business from scratch, permission marketing, how to create and deploy effective design, business development, how to turn your hobby into a business, product launches, copywriting that converts, and much more. A message from Tom: All interviews are unscripted and unedited because I believe conversations are better when they're natural. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I do creating it.
