Jack Canfield knows a bit about creating success in his life, with book sales in the millions. So its a delight as we do every weekend, to go back in time and dip into the Join Up Dots vaults to find a show that could well be hidden from your ears in this case Mr Jack Canfield.
And why do we do this? Well, you success junkies desperate for the golden ticket have been asking "With so many episodes of Join Up Dots out there now, which ones should we listen to first?
And its a difficult question to answer as everyone of them has motivation and inspiration flooding out of every pore. So we have simply decided to grab an entrepreneur at random, and share with you not only their journey, but also ours. We think we are getting better at this podcasting lark, but what do you think? Drop us a line at email@example.com and let us know. Thanks as always for listening to the show, and enjoy todays entrepreneurial business chat.
Today’s guest quite simply needs no introduction, but hey what kind of host would I be if I didn’t build him up for the big entrance?
Well lets start with saying its rare that you will see a bookshelf or a library that doesn’t have one of his publications sitting amongst their ranks.
He is the author of the astonishingly successful series of books, that are the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, that has been sold the world over, and counts sales as somewhere beyond 500 million copies worldwide.
And the fact that Oprah can hardly state three words without speaking about her love for this book, then you know he has created something special.
But his life hasn’t always been one of success, and with three marriages under his belt and a less than spectacular start to his professional life, he knows both sides of what makes a fully realised life.
He has worked for a living as a psychotherapist, an educational consultant, and a trainer to name a few, but it was when he met Mr Mark Victor Hansen co-author of the Chicken Soup Series that things started to move in the direction that he visualised for himself.
And through those life experiences, or up and downs, successes and failures, he learnt the Success Principles, that he found were the key to create the life that you want.
And now ten years later from it first being released, he is re-publishing it, with greater insights as to what can make an amazing life, he is a man on a vision.
So does he see the up and downs are actually the key points to what gives a life success, are they the foundations to maintain the momentum gained?
And does he get told by every waiter in the world “Ah Mr Canfield, I expect you want to have the Chicken Soup tonight, ho ho ho!”
Well let’s find out as its with delight, that we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Jack Canfield.
