Todays guest entrepreneur joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who was introduced to me by Ginger Kern who appeared on the show way back on episode 115
He is an author, host of the hit podcast "The Year Of Purpose", entrepreneur, video lover and and a guy who appears to have started moving at an astonishing speed towards the dreamlife, due basically to realising it was down to him to start moving.
As he says “I’ve held every job from being a pastry chef in a gourmet bakery to fixing iPhones at the Apple Store Genius Bar. In May of 2013 I left the corporate 9-5 world behind to become an entrepreneur.
I was still living with my parents, had next to nothing in savings and ditched my 401K to design a video production company that would place me in the White House along with NFL and NBA arenas around the country.”
But all action starts when the dots have started joining up and placing you in a position to thrive, and from starting his career as a Student Intern at Post-Op Media he moved through a series of positions that all have one thing in common.
He is a creator and a visionary.
He likes nothing more than the process of creating something eye-catching.
So it was with little surprise that he became the CEO of ZMBmedia, a Baltimore based video production company providing online marketing videos a promotional content to high end clients including AAA and Merrill Shoe Company.
But what is surprising was his next move, as after working in his business for a year and a half, it started to feel more like a job again.
He was struggling to find the motivation to make the money he so desperately needed.
So he moved out and got his own place, built a business (which brings in more expenses) and did everything right… or so he thought.
As he says “I was in a funk and had no clue what to do. But if there was one thing that was certain, I wasn’t living my life purposefully and I had to find a way to reignite the fire fast.”
And that is where we will start today’s show, in the same position as so many of our guests who are lost, confused and know that something awaits them.
But what could it be?
So when he decided to jump from his business, and break free for California?
And how did he silence the brain chatter that more often than not keep us rooted to the spot?
And, know knowing what he knows would he advise everyone to do this, or does it take a special type of person?
Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr Zephan Moses Blaxberg.
