Entrepreneur Success Stories With Join Up Dots - Inspiration, Confidence, & Small Business Coaching To Start Your Online Career

Joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast is an amazing guest entrepreneur.

We have many types of people joining us on the top rated business podcast interview Join Up Dots, but today's guest is a slight departure from what we have seen recently.

Our guest grew up in New York State, where she had huge motivation to sing pop songs by Madonna around the house and then started writing her own pop songs at an early age.

Then when she was nine years old her school music teacher told her she had the voice of an opera singer, and took her to see her first opera.

Her great-grandfather was a virtuoso musician who signed with Victor Records in the 1890’s, but no one else in her family ever listened to classical music.

Which is a really interesting position to find yourself in.

Most people will struggle with fighting their way to a new future even if they are surrounded by people that have the same passion as them.

But find yourself in a world, where very few people understand what is going on inside you then it comes down to a huge amount of hustle muscle, and personal belief.

And so she worked at her talent, found the right people to work with and a few years later sang her first classical piece, and has never looked back.

But even more interesting is her refusal to do things any other way than her own, and is blending many different styles into her repertoire, even comedy with an off the wall version of “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer.

So with all the avenues in front of her to travel, how does she make the decisions that will be right for her own career, and not dilute her natural born talent?

And does she embrace the hustle that it takes to build a career, or would she like to just get up there and belt them out?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots and follow the words of Steve Jobs, with the one and only singing entrepreneur Elizabeth Tryon.

Steve Jobs knew a thing or two, and todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Join Up Dots free business podcast interview is a lady who buys into his words more than most.

She is a best-selling author, TEDx speaker, radio and television personality and seminar leader who is passionate about the expanding the edge of human potential.

She has written two best-sellers, “Calming the Chaos: A Soulful Guide to Managing Your Energy Rather than Your Time” and “Time for a Change!”

Her lifestyle is one of freedom and pure motivation

As she says in her own words “I am not one of those lucky people born with success in their back pocket. In fact nothing could be further from the truth. It would be more accurate to say that I fit the classic “tragedy to triumph” story.

Before my 2nd birthday, my family experienced the death of my father, his brother and father within 9 months of one another, all in separate car accidents. That means my grandmother lost her husband and two of her three sons in 9 months. Living in a very small town, it basically became my family legacy.

My mother did the best she could to raise three kids with no husband and a high school education in the 60’s and 70’s, but let’s just say it wasn’t easy.

I had more than a few challenges moving into my teen and young adult years. Poor relationships, addiction, domestic violence and numerous psychiatric diagnoses and medications were what I knew well into my 30’s.

But of course what you know doesn’t mean it is true.

It is only the reality of your life at that moment and you can rewrite your story by making bold decisions, taking creative action, and starting to truly believe in yourself.

And since then she has done just that and as she says “I am now the happiest person I know!”

So what was the shift from a life that was all about surviving whatever was thrown her way, to one that is a wow everyday?

And is this something that anyone can do, or do the dots need to start lining up first?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots and following the words of Steve Jobs, with the one and only Jackie Woodside.

Its with total delight that once more the words of Steve Jobs get reviewed with todays guest entrepreneur to the top rated business podcast interview show Join Up Dots.

She is a professional traveller, part-time writer, part-time book seller, part-time model, and full-time adventurer.

She has built a lifestyle of freedom and motivation.

She lives for the careers built around the kind of experiences that create a life that is a wow, and quite simply it seems to me won’t settle for what life simply gives her.

Instead she wants to take what is right for her.

But I suppose at her core, its not just about what’s right for her, but also what is right for the ladies of the world.

Yes, she is super passionate about empowering young women in marganilized communities and loves experiencing and sharing new cultures with others.

In fact just recently she was asked to join a small research team for a group called The Syrian Circle and spent the last month travelling across Europe (from Greece to Germany) to document stories of refugees, locals, and volunteers across the region .

The second part of her team’s mission was to meet with leaders in each country to better understand the situation, the needs in each region, and how people can specifically respond and advocate for refugees.

So you can see this is not your normal lady, who is seeking to climb up the corpartae ladder as quickly as she can.

As she says on her blog “Ive got big dreams and a curiosity to see, hear, and explore the world around me.”

So what was it about a life of adventure, and assisting the marginalised that so appealed to her?

And of course where does she see all this activity heading towards, as its great to be a lady on a mission, but ultimately none of us escape from the day to day living expenses?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Giselle Gonzales

Today’s guest entrepreneur reviewing the words of Steve Jobs, on the Join Up Dots free business podcast, is a lady who has gradually built her way to where she is today.

She quite simply has been through the lifecoach school of hardknocks and now through her top ranked podcast Coming Out Of The Fire she is showing others how to overcome lifes issues.

As her professional bio states “I am known in pop culture as America’s crisis Coach. I come alongside celebrities, professional athletes, corporations and other high-achievers to manage their crisis situations, save their reputations and minimize damage to themselves and their families.”

Which is quite a dramatic statement to make.

But what has lead to her to want to build a career, and one that is hugely successful around dealing with other peoples heartaches, and personal distress.

What made her want to step boldly into a world of crisis management and create a lifestyle of freedom and success.

Well reviewing her career, you can see clearly the dots that have lead her to this point starting with a ten year stint as a Senior Case Manager at Tehama County Mental Health in California.

Before undertaking the role of Executive Director responsible for a 24 bed, licensed residential facility for the mentally ill.

But to my point of view, and we will discuss this on the show the true signpost showing her the way to her current position was as a Court Investigator researching petitions for conservatorship or guardianship to prevent abuse, neglect or fraud.

Combining the personal issues that are encountered by mental health, with the day to day stuff that life throws at people, it is obvious that one word is formed: Crisis.

So does she see her career dissection in the same way as I do, or does she feel that other elements have lead her to where she is today?

And how does she remain bright and breezy at the end of the day after dealing with the kind of issues that her clients are bringing to her?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only entrepreneur herself Faydra Koenig.

Today’s guest entrepreneur following the words of Steve Jobs, on the top rated business podcast Join Up Dots is a man who not only has been on an amazing professional journey over the last 25 years, but also a personal journey equally as inspirational too.

For many years our guest worked for the big food companies and was obese, struggling with binge eating and over eating.

And of course as you can imagine this was not good for his well being, so he knew that he had to do something about it, and so he did.

He wanted a lifestyle of freedom and motivation and inspiration so made a plan.

He conducted research, found the motivation to self-fund a study with over 40,000 participants and made an astonishing transition from obesity and food obsession into a more light hearted relationship with food.

But believe me this isn’t a guy with just one success story that we could tap into, as he has had such an eclectic background, and tackled many different businesses and become a success in them all that we could start anywhere to make a great career show.

As he says “At the risk of being immodest, I probably have more experience in both coaching and business development than the founders of virtually any other coach certification program on the market. Through the International Coach Certification Academy, I would like to pass on my knowledge, experience, teaching and mentoring to you.

Together with my wife and academy co-founder Dr Sharon Livingston, we have sold over $30,000,000 in consulting services to major brands like AT&T, American Express and L’Oreal. I have personally worked with over 1,000 coaching clients and directly supervised many coaches and psychotherapists to”

So where do we start on the joining up of his dots?

What stage of his career is the most inspirational?

With the amazing physical transformation that he went through, losing many many pounds of unneeded weight?

Or right at the beginning, when he was a child and couldn’t have believed where he was going to end up?

Who knows, but let’s start like we always do, by bringing onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only super entrepreneur himself Dr Glenn Livingston.
