Today's episode as is normal for a Fridays show, is a hybrid between keeping you advised as to what is happening in the world of Join Up Dots, and answering a few listener questions. Well, let's start with the show first and foremost. If you have been keeping up with the new routine that we now operate you will know that October has been a rest month for the host of Join Up Dots. Being aware that a business can not operate on a low battery, has pushed David into finding a way that he can bring the business under his control and not the other way around. He has done that by compressing his activities into a four week burst of activity, and then protecting the following week like his life depended on it. Making sure that he utilized batching methods, Parkinson's law and also the 80/20 principle which he is a huge believer in. If you want more free time in your life, and increase your earnings exponentially then as he says "You must think about what you are doing, and what your customer needs most. Cut out all the wasted time that you think is productive, and just do what they truly need." It really has been a game change for sure, and allows for true focus, money building, and great ideas to flow into your brain. Now for some questions from the listeners of Join Up Dots "Hi David, I am a 26 year old female originally from Jakarta in Malaysia, but now living in Holland. I love your show and all the interesting stories that you give us. I am in a job that i dont like and find very unfulfilling. My passion is to create a business around Yoga, and specifically Pranayama, which is the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force. This seems so specific that I wonder if I could manage to build a business around this. Any suggestions I would truly appreciate it." Adelia, Amsterdam. The second question this week is from John from Cheshire who asks "David what is the first thing that you do each day in your business. I would love some guidance as I spend much of my time deciding to do something and not actually doing anything" And now the last question from the Join Up Dots listeners comes from M. Archer from Tupelo, Mississippi who wants more guidance in regards to finding money from her Toy Making business. "Hello David, over the last few years I have been working on a toy making business. These are small knitted replicas of friends and family. They send me pictures and then I make small models of them. I love doing it, as its very therapeutic. But it is also time consuming so the money I can charge for the toys, is nowhere near what my hourly wage would be in a job. Any suggestions as to how I can develop this business that I love into one that I can do full time?" Thank you as always for you your time and listening to the show.
