I failed big time. I hate to admit it but I have. There is no point in continuing the journey, when it's quite obvious that I am nowhere near where I should be at the moment. And how have I come to that realisation that there is not point in going on as I failed. Well you can see it on social media, FB and the images that the world shows the world. Everytime you see a picture on FB showing some amazing moment in someones life, you can see that you are so far behind the curve of where you want to be. Its obvious. But this isn't true. Its not that you failed, its just that these guys started earlier than you. They dipped their toes into the waters of where you want to be and have hustled their way to success. And do you know what? These people are looking at other people have thinking "I Failed" This is the normal way of life, but it doesn't have to the case as you can create your own success....the success that is right for you. So are you ready to stop thinking that you life is rubbish and everyone else has the answers? Well???? Lets start creating your own highlight reels to inspire the people behind you. That is the true mark of success after all.

Amazon Income, may not be the way that many people build a huge fortune, but my guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who without a doubt can call himself a serial entrepreneur as he has done just that.

He has built several multi-million dollar companies in both Australia and the United States, and really doesn't look like he is slowing down in the regard to creating his own destiny.

In 2005 he co-founded one of the first crowdfunding platforms in the world which went on to raise in excess of $100M dollars for start-ups and early stage businesses.

He currently owns a cloud software business, an Amazon review company (based in Florida), a home-wares company that sells its products exclusively through Amazon into 8 countries, and Reliable Education.

None of his companies have outside investors and all are profitable.

But what is super interesting to me is how he has created businesses in environments that we all hang around in, and almost take for granted.

Such as in 2012, he learned about the opportunity to sell on Amazon through a friend.

Now like all of us, he was used to seeing Amazon boxes all over town and he was a big user of Amazon himself.

But it wasn’t until he took a course that he learned that anybody could sell on Amazon, and that Amazon would handle all of the warehousing and shipping for him.

Once he understood that, he soon launched his own brand which now sells in 8 Amazon marketplaces around the world.

So how does he see these things, when so many people will just walk past them time and time again and never think "Wow what an opportunity!"?

And does he feel that anyone can do these kind of things, or to become a serial entrepreneur, do you require special talents and skills that are god given at birth?

Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Adam Hudson.

His early songs were mostly rock, but he played acoustic and expanded his skills, until at the of 18, he recorded his first series of original songs, and started touring all over the United States, Europe and South America as well. Before taking the lessons that he had learned in the music world, to start teaching karaoke lovers, and shower singers how to make the most of their own vocal talents with his course Superior Singing Method But that is just one part of his backstory, as since those days he has flourished in the online world especially on Youtube, where in his own humble words he says "I’ve also had some success in the YouTube space (10 mil organic views/100k+ subscribers) But now is the next stage of his professional career with the release of his first book "The Voice of Your Dreams" where he shares his own successes, and struggles.

My guest today is a marketing expert and the host of the Market Like A Nerd Podcast, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a young lady, that has endured more than most people will do in their whole life.

Growing up very poor with a father who was a drug addict and an abusive stepfather her mother was too scared to leave, you can imagine her life was full of dreams of something better.

You would think her life would have turned around when she graduated, and was accepted to one of the top universities in the world, Johns Hopkins, but just before she began her freshman year she was hit by a car and had to learn to walk again, and then was raped during her recovery period.

Still struggling with the aftermath of the accident during her freshman year, she found out some of the symptoms she was experiencing were actually signs that she was 4.5 months pregnant.

Not to be deterred, she was induced on a Saturday in April and returned to school on Monday to take a final exam.

With support from her mother and now-husband, she was able to graduate in four years with three majors.

But it wasn’t until she worked as a social media marketing intern that she found her calling, quit graduate school and started her first business at 21.

Now this is of course all very inspiring stuff, depressing in many ways, but also inspiring to see someone overcome so many obstacles in their lives, and fight their way back.

But what is most inspiring is the manner that she has created her own business personality, which is full of lightness, fun, and almost cartoon like quality which is really unique.

This is someone in control of how she wants to present herself to the world, and she is not willing to follow the route that everyone else takes.

She had her first $10k month at 22, made $150k in four months at 23, and now at 25 has completed a six-figure launch in 90 days while expanding her business to 19 countries.

She has mastered the art of working smarter not harder, paring down her work to part-time while taking at least 10 vacations a year.

Brilliant stuff!

So how did she manage to fight off the victim mentality and come back in such a spectacular manner?

And is this something that everyone can do, or do you need three majors, a business degree, and an ever expanding email list?

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Amanda Goldman-Petri

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is with a man who has been on a personal journey, of success and discovery leading him to become the first Hispanic and Gay American to serve in two senior executive roles in the White House.

In 1980, he graduated from Harlingen High School, in deep South Texas, and it seems to me he spent most of his time playing a part to fit in to what the community, and his peers expected a Texas boy to be.

He hunted, fished, played football and baseball and lived the life of someone else, certainly not what he wanted to be: An openly gay man.

It was a difficult time for him as you can imagine, and things didn’t change until he got through to College age.

As he says “Getting to college gave me permission to finally start to be me. It was OK to start to live my little secret. It was accepted and celebrated in so many ways. That was a life-saving experience for me.”

So what do you do when you can finaly start to relax into your own personal power, and live the life that you want?

Well you head to the White House to hug the then vice president Al Gore, and burst into tears on his shoulder.

Well that would be the usual way of doing things, but not the Join Up Dots way of doing things, or our guests, instead he went to New York to try to make it on Broadway, believe it or not, to try to make it as a singer, before returning to school, to study for his law degree, until finally 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue beckoned and his life changed forever.

And now with his book “Little Secret Big Dreams” on the shelves he tells his story, as he overcomes the hurdles of his life to be who he wanted to be.

As he says “I wrote it because I want kids and adults to realize you can come from the Valley and get to the White House. I wrote this for anyone who has ever felt different. The message is to

every kid and ever parent — celebrate who you are. We are, each and every one of us, worthy, unique and special, and we have a place at the table of life.”

So could he have got to where he was today, by missing any off the dots that have made up his life, or did he need every single one to occur?

And did working within the White House, see that the power of change was something that everybody wanted, or was it simply a minefield of red-tape which made that change so difficult to achieve?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Moe Vela.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who was kind enough to have me as a guest on his show Smashing The Plateau.

This is a great show where he raises the question that we all need help with in our lives - How to get past that huge obstacle that keeps us stuck in our lives.

How to smash the plateau. you see its all in the name.

Now the interesting thing about our guest is his desire to not only help individuals achieve success, but also companies too which has taken up the bulk of his life over the last decade..

He is the President of TEND Strategic Partners, and is a recognised authority on leadership and management capabilities that lead to organisational excellence.

He is the creator of the TEND System™, specifically designed to take advantage of existing resources from a team…building upon successes they have already achieved… integrating and managing structured changes, with built-in accountability, without adding excessive workload or unnecessary expenses.

By tapping into time-tested blueprints to overcome emotional and tactical roadblocks, he designs and implements the innovations needed for business to thrive, and empowers organisations to become the recognised go-to resource in their niche.

But of course within all organisations their are individuals with their own problems, so is it as simple as helping the man is the quickest way of helping the boss?

Or do we simply have to find a world where the right pegs are banged into the right holes.

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr David Shriner-Cahn.
