Steve Jobs was a huge inspiration to all of us on the show, not least todays guest entrepreneur.
Today’s guest entrepreneur joining us on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast interview is a man who I connected with awhile ago, and quite simply have watched him flourish in a very short time.
He is a man who is taking bold, and some might say unusual action in a very unusual setting leading to astonishing success.
Studying at University, he left with qualifications in Accountancy and a desire to get into a solid, reliable firm and work his way up the corporate ladder.
Haven't we seen those same ideals demonstrated on so many of the Join Up Dots interviews over he years?
Well, it wasn't too long into his career when a life crisis led him from a professional life within an international auditing firm to the Peruvian Amazon jungle to work with shamans in a quest for healing.
Yes, amazingly he no longer commutes with a briefcase and a suit, he now takes groups of people down into the rainforest for trips with the Shamans, to gain enlightened spirituality and healing.
Now, I have spoken to him before hand and advised that Join Up Dots is not about woo woo, but it is about the average person living an amazing life.
So no stories that are too out there (although he did tell me a brief story, which was sooo out there, that we will have to try to bring it onto the show)
But he has built an amazing life by learning first-hand how to overcome fears, how to tackle huge challenges, and how to up-skill quickly to ensure his rapid progress.
So what was it about the accountancy world that didn't light his fire once becoming part of the number crunching game?
And did his friends show concern, when he said "I'm quitting this job to go to the Amazon and find myself?"
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, and start discussing creating perfect jobs, with the one and only entrepreneur Mr Pol Cousineau.
