Steve Jobs inspired all our guest entrepreneurs, joining us on the top rated Join Up Dots business podcast to look back on their lives.

Well today's entrepreneur ready to do just that is a man who is more than content to dive headfirst into a business and make it Zoom!!

You see he is a great believer that a company only finds true success and becomes the best it can be, by how good its individuals are.

So make the individuals great and guess what you get?

You got it, an amazing company, a fun place to work, and best of all making healthy profits.

A system that brings success to everyone.

As he says i have one simple state to find the motivation to do the work that I love.

I love people, and I love ideas.

But what I love most is helping people take their ideas and make them fly. It’s led me to a 20-year career doing business development in some very different industries. As the CEO of a global coaching business, I led a multi-year transformation of the culture and brand. I co founded a renewable energy company and a non-profit that taught meditation and yoga to at-risk youth.

Those jobs and my personal journey drove me to launch refound—to share the best of what I’ve learned in a way people can use. “

So what is Refound you maybe asking?

Well this is a great platform that shows all companies how to build the kind of culture that offers people a benefit that far exceeds any paycheck—the opportunity to become better at being themselves.

That is the kind of content that produces income like magic.

But of course all our guests do not find their thing straight away, and struggle through countless jobs, and it seems like our entrepreneur today has been exactly the same.

He started his education at New York University School of Law before entering into several different companies over the next twenty years.

So does he feel that he has found his thing, or is he still working on climbing up the right career ladder?

And how does he feel when he enters a business and see room after room of sad, dispirited faces?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only entrepreneur and author, Jonathan Raymond.

Today’s guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast is a man with content to have many plates spinning at once, not least agreeing to be appearing with us today.

He is an internationally known speaker, author, and business credit expert.

And when you hear him talk you can say that is also "Pure Motivation"

He is the CEO at Credit Suite where he created and continues to grow one of the biggest and most credible business coaching operations in the United States.

With a career based around 16+ years of financial experience, he is widely recognized as an authority in business credit building, business credit scoring, and business credit repair.

He has written content that has flown off the bookshelves of the world.

As the author of two popular books, Perfect Credit and Business Credit Decoded, but that little list tells you just a little bit of the story.

As although knocking it out of the park in conference halls across the world, his working life started in a very different position all together.

Back in 1994 you would found this wannabe entrepreneur starting his working career under the education of Uncle Sam at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base, in America helping recovering cardiac patients after open heart surgery.

So how did he transition from that point to being one of the people that business’s ask for when it comes to credit scoring?

Where did he find the motivation to become the best he could be in a totally new environment?

And did Uncle Sam give him the working practices that have allowed him to flourish, or has he got to the top despite of that fact?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Ty Crandall

Following the words of Steve Jobs today, is a guest entrepreneur that is a special man to have on today’s episode, which is the official 500th interview that I have recorded.

Not of course the 500th show we have released, but the 500th time that I have sat down with a mover and shaker to record an interview for the show.

And what makes it even more special is this guy was the first interviewee that I ever recorded with nearly two years ago.

Yes, the first piece of online content to come from the Join Up Dots conveyor belt.

Yep, when I was nothing more than a man with a dream to become a podcaster, with no profile, confidence, social platform, but a lot of motivation, then if it wasn’t for him agreeing to the podcast interview, then there was a good chance that the show wouldn’t be around today.

So send all your complaints to him as he could have nipped it all in the bud right at the very beginning

Now on that first episode we talked about how he had left the military with a desire to travel the world and create a business for himself on his own terms.

A business that would provide both freedom, motivation and income.

How he would sit on his bed in his baracks and start creating something that he could show to the world and be proud off.

But wow, hasn’t it all changed since we last spoke, as it now seems that not only does he have the belief in what he can achieve, but also the world does too.

As he is creating content, products, podcasts, books and income faster and faster.

Such as the Publishers’​ Empire, a comprehensive publishing training program, community and book launch platform, which holds over 100 HD training videos, a private, 24/7 forum, weekly small group coaching, exclusive expert interviews with today’s top self-publishers, marketers, and more, copy-and-paste book marketing and sales scripts, dozens of book templates, and much, much more.

And those three last words are the key to his increasing success “Much, much more”

He is seeing the world differently.

He is acting differently

And he is playing to his super talents, and where he lacks, finding the super talents of others to deliver much much more.

So when did it really start to speed up and in the words of the comedian Steve Martin “He become so good that he couldn’t be ignored any more”

And when he looks back at the version of himself, sitting on his army bed, was he close to what he wanted to be, or is that now a distant version of what he now wants to become?

has he found the motivation that brings it al together?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots for the second time with the one and only super entrepreneur himself, Mr Tom Morkes.

Today’s guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast interview is a lady entrepreneur who has a brilliantly chaotic story, which in many ways mirror so many of our lives.

Things being thrown at us left right and centre, with many of these things not being the kind of things that anyone would have chosen, but in todays guest has helped her move forward to online success.

As she says “When Katrina hit, I was a mom of 6 kids under 10, in a dysfunctional, chaotic marriage — my husband is an alcoholic and wasn’t admitting that or dealing with it. Because I had lived down in that area for a long while and had been evacuated before (when it wasn’t necessary)  I opted to ride out the storm, until I was forced at the last minute, to leave. My husband was out of town at the time, so I and the kids literally left the house with only the clothes on our backs and a sack of dirty laundry I grabbed at the last minute.  No papers, birth certificates, SSN, toys, school books, NOTHING. From that disaster, I slowly began to rebuild my life, discovering peace through yoga. As I began to rebuild my self esteem I ended up getting certified, and am now a yogi. I dissolved my marriage when my husband refused to get help for his alcoholism, and I and the children are now living in a small West Tennessee town, happy and peaceful.”

Which is a life that could have derailed her, and had her playing the victim card.

Blaming her husband, her situation, or her kids for the life that she was living.

But she didn’t, and instead of playing the victim, she set out on a path of pure motivation, where she made choice after choice, decision after decision to change her future.

She did the tough stuff, the rough stuff, and the things that probably she wouldn’t have believed that she could have done.

She is now passionate about writing, yoga, travelling, public speaking and being a fabulous single mum to six super kids.

She has found the motivation to build a career around appearing on TV, on podcasts, and radio, and producing great content, showing the world how to be fabulous.

Her life is a sort of organized chaos, and she loves every minute of the craziness and is grateful for all she’s learned along the way.

So when did she make the decision to start making decisions and taking responsibility for her future and happiness?

Creating the success in her life that she deserves.

And is it something that she only managed, because she was used to dealing with hardship and obstacles?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Jennifer Williams-Fields.

Today’s guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast interview is a lady who is a complete rockstar.

Not in the get up on stage and grind it like Tina Turner type of rockstar or perhaps she does that in her spare-time.

But the kind of rockstar that can make your marketing, jump out of the page, like Mick Jagger on speed.

As she says “I can take you from “I don’t know” or “This doesn’t work” or even “I’m not having any FUN with this!” to “My Marketing ROCKS!”

Which is of course a very confident statement to make, and one that works on every level.

So who is she?

She is the former Marketing Manager for Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle – whose first sales-letter generated nearly $9,000.00 in less than 3 days to a list barely over 200 people.

Her copy and marketing strategy contributed to a campaign that generated over $1 MILLION at an international event attended by more than 1,000 people.

And that is the kind of online content that anyone would want to know about.

As she says “When I began working for Dan Kennedy and Bill Glazer in 2007, a whole new world was opened up to me in terms of marketing. I’d always paid attention to advertising, and I always had a strange addiction to infomercials, but I never could have imagined that my life would begin revolving around all things marketing, all the time.

I studied Psychology, English and Creative Writing in college – never once suspecting that perhaps I was setting myself up for a career in marketing. I always just loved the English language and the way words could be used to accomplish so many things… and in my Psychology classes, I was learning what made people tick.

Now I have the great pleasure of taking the things that I love and doing them for money! I am very content to figure out new ways to make people buy things and it’s quite rewarding to know that my words helped someone increase their bottom line and benefit their bank accounts.

I really do have the best job in the world.”

So what is the difference between creative writing, and great marketing copy?

And does she see that this was something she learnt, or was always in here in some degree?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only copywriting entrepreneur Alyson Lex.
