Today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast is a lady who like so many of us decided that she wanted something in life, and then found out that she hated it once it was achieved.
As she says in her own words “My lifelong goal was to be a manager. I hit the corporate fast track and became a manager in record time – and found out I hated it!
The long hours, corporate politics and endless budget meetings drained my energy and enthusiasm for life. What I really wanted, I decided, was a life where I could make my husband and kids my top priority – so I quit the corporate world to run my own business. I built and ran several businesses but something was still missing.”
That statement is so interesting to me on so many levels, which we will discuss on the show.
But our guest worked on living a life with status and prestige, but then changed direction.
So she became an entrepreneur which is the direct opposite to where she was and still it wasn’t right.
These decisions seem to be directed by her head, or her survival instincts, yet once she listened to her heart, and really listened to what the old blood pumper was telling her then it all came together for her.
And now she works with clients all over the world in such wonderful places as Holland, Belgium, Australia, U.K., Hong Kong and more!
She has coached and mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs helping them create 6 figure businesses and beyond.
Even achieving six figures in one day.
So does she look back at her career in corporate land and thank the gods that even though she was climbing up the wrong ladder, it still taught her the skills to build her own ladder and start climbing again?
And how does she balance this increased success with also being a Mum and Wife. Could she see a time when once again the ladder turns out to be wrong?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to joining up the dots, with the one and only Val Bullerman.

Today’s guest joining us on Join Up Dots is a lady who is known as one of North America’s foremost experts on performance success through thought mastery.
An executive coach and popular speaker, she works exclusively with highly driven, accomplished executives, leading entrepreneurs and high level professionals in their respective fields.
Working with high profile individuals who have already achieved success in some areas of their lives, she uses the unique Frame of Mind Coaching process to ignite significant change and life transformation.
What this means in a nutshell, at least the way that I see it, is she makes the successful folk realise that they are only at the point of success that they are allowing themselves to achieve.
Their thought patterns need to be changed or at least re-directed to allow for greater and greater achievement.
She provides a framework, she breaks down the ceiling that they are pressed against, to then build a clear sky to shoot up into.
As her clients say “I found that her coaching has reawakened the person in me that had been dormant for years. I had almost forgotten what it was like to feel alive”
So when did she first grasp this concept and was it like a angels singing, and a yellow brick road appearing like magic in front of her to follow?
And what steps can all of us take to be able to get going with Framing Our Minds for success?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, with the one and only Kim Ades.

Today’s guest joining me on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast show is a man who has a fascinating story, some might say a heroic story.
With the biggest smile you are likely to see he has found the motivation to overcome one of the most self limiting beliefs that anyone can have “That of self loathing”
As he says “At birth, I created a bit of a ruckus and lost oxygen in the process. As I grew, I developed a one-of-a-kind accent commonly called a speech impediment. Also as a kid, I had substantial coordination difficulties. For instance, in seventh grade, I actually threw a shot put backwards during a track meet!
I spent much of my life strongly disliking not being “normal.” At least I accomplished a good deal while feeling badly about myself, although, I wouldn’t recommend this type of motivation. I graduated college with a double major in English and Social Work. I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Poetry. And, for ten years, I worked for an organization that served people with developmental disabilities. This was an extremely rewarding job. On a daily basis, I was seeing the best in other people. Unfortunately, I was still often seeing the worst in myself.”
But of course, on Join Up Dots we aim to inspire and motivate, not to depress you, and our guest will definitely do that.
As little by little he found a way through his difficulties, to achieve the greatest breakthrough of all. He learnt to accept who he was, warts and all, and love himself.
And now a coaching business and a flourishing speaking career he is getting out there everyday, and leaving a trail of inspired folks ready to turn their limitations into extraordinary results.
So how did he start turning his life around, and is this a process that we can all follow?
And how is it possible to actually throw a shot backwards anyway?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Jason Freeman.

Today's episode has been brought to you by the Entrepreneurs And Coffee Podcast hosted by the amazing Brendan Hufford
So looking back, and joining up your dots, you have to ask yourself, were they worth it? Were all of those dots worth learning from and going through to get you where you are today? And to be honest, it really only matters if you’re happy where you are today. If you’re happy in your business and life, then you probably have a really amazing sense of clarity about your dots that have brought you here. But maybe you aren’t. Maybe you hate your dots and hate some aspect of your life and I know listening to David and I today has inspired you and given you actionable advice because we just finished chatting and *I’m* pumped up and ready to crush my goals and live my dream. *I’m* ready to live a life that I don’t have to take a vacation from.
But David stressed just taking that first step.
And then going one step at a time.

My guest today, on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an a man who is on a mission to help us all.
He has a passion for helping all of us to break free from what he calls "Solo Economic Dependancy"
Now if you have no idea what that means, then Solo Economic Dependency is basically this: If you’re not working, you not making money.
High-paid professionals, doctors, dentists, surgeons, freelance consultants, lawyers, accountants……people from all types of backgrounds find themselves in this predicament.
Lose the job, or be forced to take leave of absence, and you are forced to dip into your savings if you have them.
Well our guest believes that being put into that position is quite simply madness, and works on making money even when he isn't working……in fact, even while his sleeping.
As he says "That’s real financial freedom, and that’s something worth striving for"
So how has he managed to do this?
And are their strategies that all of us can implement that can start helping us break that one job dependancy?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Mark Podolsky

Today's guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is a man who was first introduced to me by Devon Bandison who appeared on the show way back on episode 108.
How told me that "If you wanted success, motivation and hustle on your show then this is the man to have!"
Gaining his education at Ursinus College he left with a Bachelors of Arts, Business & Economics, and set of into the big wide world with a dream.
And it seems to me that this dream at it's core, is about helping people become the best versions of themselves.
Helping them not only discover themselves, but build a business around them that flourishes.
As he says "In the past 4 years I’ve done everything from sell nearly $1m of clothes in a year while coaching CrossFit, to living the dream and build an online business for study abroad students while in Italy, to building the strategy for a 30 day $122k Kickstarter campaign.
It hasn’t all been pretty, but it’s been an incredible education that’s gotten me to where I am today. In my strategy coaching business, I help artists and entrepreneurs like you get started on and move toward their “South Pole Goals” by focusing on the tiny bits of heroism that, when repeated consistently, will make the biggest difference."
And that is the key thing to becoming who you want to be in life.
Taking small steps consistently, and realising that pretty won't come into the equation until much later on the journey.
And now from his hometown base in the Greater New York City Areahe is rocking and rolling and it seems being the version of himself that he was born to be?
So when things were not pretty how did he find the skills or education to change the future into one much more attractive?
And does he believe that anyone can do what he has, or does it take a special kind of person?
Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Tony Ubertaccio.

My guest today, on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who for many years suffered with the age old question that we all seem to struggle with “What should I be doing with my life?”
On the outside, it was a question that didn’t seem to be required to answer.
She had a great job, a good-life, friends, a boyfriend…..most of our must have tick boxes were well and truly filled.
However deep down she had a feeling that there must be more to life than what she was experiencing.
This couldn’t be what she had been placed on this earth to experience.
So, within six months she had quit her job, and set about going after the life of her dreams.
She worked out what she most wanted to achieve, she wrote the lists, she worked her butt off, and she ended up doing something that she didn’t like.
As she says “Not every business is meant for you and just because others can make a go of it, doesn’t mean it’s your calling. It was a hard decision to make but I decided, it was time to let it go.
When I did that I felt a sense of relief. While I didn’t like the fact that I had just ‘failed’, I did feel relief that there was nowhere else to go but up.
Plus, my amazing dad had said to me at that time, ‘Jennifer, failure is like a badge of honour to an entrepreneur. What’s next?”
That was a big moment for me. It’s when I learned, and I mean intrinsically learned in all the cells of my being that failure isn’t bad. That failure is a part of growth and it can have a very empowering meaning if we allow it.
So where did this moment of relief and letting go take her?
And could she have to got to where she is now, without going though this period of her life?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Jennifer Trask

Today's guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is a man with many, different achievements, in many different fields.
All of them I supposed linked to taking the kind of risks that push you to the top of your chosen field.
His success is based around doing the things that he love, leading to the freedom of choice that we all want.
You can list that he is the founder of Riskology.co, the leading website for smart risk-takers.
He has run a marathon on every continent. Yep, including Antarctica.
Organized three world records and holds the title of the Adventure Czar for The World Domination Summit.
All good stuff, but when you tie it together with his core mission that he wants to help every person in the world improve their health, work, and adventures by taking smarter risks in their life then you can see he is a big thinker, and a huge problem solver.
He works with people helping them to push themselves out of their comfort zones, and developing greater security in their life, higher income earning possibilities and I guess loving the challenge of life, instead of going though the motions.
He's an independent entrepreneur who has founded 8 businesses, travelled to 25 countries, and ran a marathon on every continent to connect with the the world's greatest risk takers and adventurers and learn their secrets.
As he says "If the time is going to pass anyway, I want to spend it doing fun things with interesting people."
So did he always have that dream to change the big things in life. or did he discover this passion by accident later in life?
And how does he find the majority of people react when he proses an ever increasing risk taking in their lives?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Tyler Tervooren
