My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who seems to have had three lives. One pre internet, and then two afterwards. When he was first booked on the show back in 2015, it was whilst he was high and flying with Unstuckable Now he has pivoted and is on a mission to help the world embrace the life of entrepreneurial ventures As he says “I’m on a mission to prepare people for the future of work. Work is fundamentally changing as we know it (and faster than most people think!) I’m sounding the alarm to warn people how to prepare for it. I’ve worked for myself for the past 17 years. I believe self-employment is the future of work. I believe it can be for everyone and not just a select few. You know what I’ve discovered is the most effective method for teaching people about business? Teach them first about the Life Skills That Matter before teaching hard business skills. I used to be chronically anxious and stressed out about work because it wasn’t satisfying, it wasn’t meaningful, it wasn’t making me financially independent, it controlled too much of my time and it prevented me from living the lifestyle I wanted to live. Sound familiar? Then I designed my lifestyle to work on my terms. Today I’m happily unemployable. So if you want to work for yourself, you need to learn about yourself first. You need to understand how to manage yourself. After all, you are the first resource of your business! So how long did it truly take him to embrace the entrepreneurial journey and 100% decide it was for him? And when did he come to realisation that it could in fact be for everyone, not just the chosen few? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr. Stephen Warley Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Stephen Warley such as: Why we should all pay more attention to the hours where our energies are at their highest to bring into the world our greatest work. Stephen says we shouldn’t keep asking permission for our lives, from employees, teachers, parents. Its our life we should all take control. Why so many people fail to look back at their younger selves to find the real clues as to how to design their lives going forward. and lastly…. How he used to be someone who couldn’t ever imagine would be able to work for himself…..and wow hasn’t he showed the world that he was wrong.
