My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man with a similar career path to myself. And a man who also has a desire to see the world flourish, and help individuals across the globe to grow exponentially, becoming their greatest versions. But of course to get to that point, you truly have to go through a journey of discovery yourself, to find your inner skills that make you unique and valuable to everyone. And it would be fair to say that just a few years ago, our guest was many many steps away from discovering their purpose in life. He was working in a restaurant in Notting Hill as a waiter, as he had been doing since the age of 15, and had certain mental restrictions should we say, that were holding him back from creating his dream life. He didn’t have a degree and his level of English was not quite enough to understand the self development literature that he was starting to immerse himself in. As he says, “Just three years ago I was facing a very difficult moment of my life. I knew I had to change but I didn’t know what to do. I felt lost, like wondering in a circle in a dark room with no exit sign and this wasn’t me!! I have always been the uber-positive-hyper-charged person that was able to lift up the energy of an entire room!! Where was that me? Where did it go? I wanted to find him and bring him back! So he took the plunge and signed up for an extensive two day coaching course in London, even though he had nowhere to live, and started working on himself everyday. He built that personal belief that he had inside him what was required to create a succesful business and little by little saw his life and his finances change. He first set up his coaching company Your Power to Shine Ltd and then a personal development events company, GTeX and was on his way. And now with a flourishing public speaking, coaching and development, and didgeridoo business (well the last one isn’t a business but is very impressive) he seems to be having the time of his life. So when did he truly switch the switch of belief and start making the bold decisions that make such a difference moving forward? And does he look back at himself and think “You were always ready to find the power to shine” you just had to start? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only, or as they say in Italy la sola e unica, Simone Vicenzi Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with such as: How he recalls being held back by his personal self image at the very beginning and battled as he felt he was being made to conform to the normal. How he went from being the youngest manager in a Michelin Star Restaurant, to creating his coaching business in just three years. And it was all down to building his network! Why he believes that it is a great learning experience to handle everything in the early stages of creating a business, but start handing things off as soon you can to focus on what you do best. and lastly…. The strangest stories involving body waxing, organic vegetables, ex-girlfriends, hitchhiking, and how to get free rent in London that you will ever hear.
