Todays guest is a man who is travelling a path that is 100% true to himself.As a younger man,he was classed as an at risk teenager, but still progressed to earn a B.A. in English.However continuing his studies did not go to plan,and although he had great talent,studying at Antioch University was not for him, and he dropped out of his MFA in Writing course.And then it seems to me without a clear idea of how to build a future, he lurched from one position to another and then back again, all the while increasing the debit on his credit card bills.He was depressed, overweight, constantly in pyjamas,and lost, but knew that he had something inside that he wanted to express to the world.As he says “we need something that fulfills us creatively.Everyone does. It doesn’t matter whether or not you think of yourself as an artist or not. Artists aren’t the only ones who do creative things. Cooks are creative, repossession agents are creative, my accountant is creative, my dad — who owns and runs a wholesale florist — is creative.He is now the co-owner of gocodebox a web development company,and has released two self penned publication to the world.So lets discuss his struggles, and his successes, and everything else in between,as we start joining up the dots with the one and only, Thomas Patrick Levy.

Todays guest is a man that from the age of five knew what he wanted to be..a millionaire. But unlike many of us who have that dream, he set out on a path that led him to achieving the majority of his dreams by the age of 23 or 24. The big house in Florida, the time freedom, and everything else that you would set your heart on at an early age. But what do you do when you get to that point and you feel flat?
What do you do when you find the process of getting there was better than the goal itself? Well he set out to change other peoples lives across the globe, by teaching the world to be conscious in their actions.
He believes that we all have it in us, to break free from our financial restraints and gain the independence finally that we deserve, by quite simply becoming onscious.
But how did he come to that realisation?
How did he turn his fathers failing business, into a success that he can now share with the world?

Todays guest is a man who career has been one of great contrast.Joining the military back in 1998 he performed the role of tank member crewman for three years before departing the armed forces and setting off on his entrepreneurial venture.Working in a series of motor dealerships he always knew that he was on a different path, and with a show like Join Up Dots demonstrating this everyday, the path can appear at anytime.There is literally no time like the present to start taking the first step on the road that feels so right and is unique to that individual.So in Jan 2014,our guest powered up his mike and launched the Fire & Adjust Podcast,providing support and content for military veterans across the world.And with the response being phenomenal and the progress of the show showing that if you target a niche and do it the right way,then you have a great chance of a future that is nothing short of a wow.So what does our guest consider to be the big takes from his life in the Army? What was the tipping point to start speaking to the world and putting himself out there? And if he could share the things that have made it easier to transition from the forces to an entrepreneurial life what would they be? Well lets find out as we start joining up dots with the one and only, Mr Ron Fugle.

Todays guest is more than an entrepreneur.
This is a lady who was has travelled the world to find her true path in life.
Searching for the freedom that her life growing up in China couldn't have offered to her.
As you can guess growing up in China, she had a childhood that was so very different to her life now in America.
The words culture shock do not really seem to do justice to the obstacles that she had to overcome once setting foot in the country she now calls home.
In the states she pursued education with a passion, and studied to become a dentist, finally owning her own very successful practice.
And that for many would have been job done, but like her husband Joel Boggess she felt something was missing.
She felt drawn to creating a better world for others.
And so together this powerhouse of a married team, have taken it on themselves to create their own business built around coaching, podcasting, writing and being hugely positive to create a future that is 100% percent unique to themselves.
So there is no better time than today to bring onto the show and start joining up the dots with the one and only podcasting legend: Dr Pei Kang.

Todays guest is a lady who could literally be singing "I'm on the top of the world,looking down at the creation"every-time she jumps out of bed.Because since University,she has had a fascination for climbing, and took part in her first mountain expedition,to the Ruwenzori in central Africa at the age of 21.And something clicked in her.Was it the challenge?The camaraderie?Or simply the thrill of doing something that so few people have seen or done before?Whatever it was since that first climb she has tackled mountains across southern and central Africa, in South America, in the Alps and of course in the Himalayas when she stood on the top of the world and made history by becoming the first woman to reach the summit from the North and South peaks. But though her days on the worlds highest peak now seem to be at an end (in her words "I have not intention in going back" )her thirst for adventure seems unquenchable and in spring of 2004 she joined British woman Rona Cant and Norwegian Per-Thore-Hansen on a dog-sled expedition of 650 km through the remote wastes of the Norwegian Arctic to the most northerly point in Europe.With all these experiences just bursting from her, its no surprise that she has also climbed twice to the top of the book charts too,with her two self penned books Everest: Free To Decide and Just for the love of it"So before I mispronounce any more words and names, let me say it gives me great pleasure, to bring onto the show to start joining up the dots that have made her life, the one and only Cathy O'Dowd.

Todays guest is someone with a fascination for unusual facts and I guess characters and communities across the world.From a young child, he always had a interest for the obscure.And as we have found time and time again on Join Up Dots, he has now taken this childhood interest and created a career around it by travelling around the world to cultivate his curiosity of the obscure.
An expert in what he calls “small worlds”, such as the Extreme Metal scene, and the British Jewish community, he loves to research and participate in these communities, and after graduating as a sociologist at University found himself drawn again and again to these worlds.But what became clear is that there are huge commonalities within these small groups,and he developed this interest,by investigating the Luxemburg watersking scene,interviewing the most powerful politician in Alderney,and even jumped across the water to meet the Icelandic special forces known as the Viking squad.
So what got him going in this direction, and how has he managed to create a life that is both hugely fascinating, but anything but usual?Well lets find out as we bring on to the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Keith Kahn-Harris.
