Business Coaching With Join Up Dots - Online Business Success The Easy Way !

Matt Phipps is todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots business podcast.

And this is one of those special shows for me and the show, as its a listener, who became an action taker and then got the dream.

As he said when we invited him on the show " In 2018 I was in the RAF for 21 years and looking for my next move, as I was ready to change.

I listened to the podcast on the way to work each day and so bumped into your travel website podcast where your Florida Keys adventures inspired me to set up something similar for Santiago, Chile, where my wife hails from.

After about 6 months I realized that this wasn’t going to be more than a side hustle in terms of income and so I kept listening. That’s when I heard you interview Adam Hudson on the show, discovered the world of E-Commerce and Amazon.

I pitched it to my wife and together we embarked on building a business around children’s gifts.

Work And Travel Dont Mix...Or Do They? R Michael Anderson Has Made A Success Doing The Work And Travel Thing.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is with a man who has had a fascinating and arduous journey to where he is today. He is the founder of The Executive JOY Institute, and specializes in teaching organizations, leaders, and individuals how to become even more successful through psychology, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness. Which if you have listened to episodes of Join Up Dots you will have heard similiar guests speak of such work. Where today’s guest differs is by the age of thirty-five, he had founded three international software companies, played semi-professional basketball (yes, he’s really six-foot nine!), and partied at the Playboy Mansion which sounds pretty amazing life affirming stuff. But our guest didn’t agree and knew that he wasn’t happy. Hard drugs, alcohol, a divorce, and a nasty lawsuit brought him to a low point where he needed to ask himself the big questions in life. A quest for change included earning a master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology from the prestigious University of Santa Monica. And now he has taught leaders around the world, from Panama to the Philippines to Australia and Mexico, and has worked with a broad range of clients, including Microsoft and SAP So is he what he would consider to be happy now or still searching for something unattainable to him……simple contentment in life? And why does he think that we all set out on a path that appears to be wrong at the beginning even thouh the clues are all around us? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr R Michael Anderson Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Michael Anderson such as: Why he now believes that coming to grips with our feelings is one of the quickest ways to achieve massive success in our lives……let the gut lead the way and its rarely wrong.. Why he had to make a decision to change his life for one of travel and freedom of location as he knew it would be the right one for him in the long term. We discuss why we fail so much through the education systems lack of inspiation and focus on failures…surely it should be strengths all the way? Michael shares the “Should or Fear” process of decision making in his life which he applies everyday. and lastly…. Why the Buddist prinicples of “It is” is such a powerful way to operating in a business. By accepting everything for what it is, we dont waste time trying to change things into what it should never be.

Nick Cramp is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast.

Nick is one of the new types of business coaches with thinking that aligns perfectly with the message of Join Up Dots

Bigger is not necessarily better.

As we have seen from more and more guests who have appeared on the show, there comes a point in the entrepreneurial journey when they start questioning the chase.

They are spending their time chasing after more listeners, more email signups, more conversions....more more more and it doesn't feel like how they imagines a successful business to feel.

They end up saying no to family commitments as they are too busy.

They walk the road to burnout with no other option until now. Perhaps they dont need to. Perhaps they already have enough its now time to make things better not bigger.

Dear David, question for you. How do you know what you are doing is going to be the right thing to do? Listening to your shows it seems the biggest thing to decide is to start, following in what to do? I would love to know your answer to this problem SL, Florida.

Hi David, loving the show, I have created a successful pizza business in my town over the last four years. Now i am getting bored with it. Should I sell, or just suck it up? MM, Essex

Luke Hyde is our guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast.

He is a 20 year old entrepreneur who has a digital marketing agency whose clients are small businesses.  It wasn't an obvious route to where he was today, but it was one that wouldn't have occurred without taking action..perhaps imperfect action but he started.

As he says "I was listening to podcasts while mopping floors in a church and decided to learn everything I could about digital marketing., and now today I am an agency owner. 

The reason that he wanted to develop his online skills was when he realised that many small business are struggling right now. He goes on to say "If your business is struggling, you’re not alone. 2020 was hard for everyone, especially small businesses.

My own business was affected last year, and it was during this year I realized a massive problem.

How The Dots Joined Up For Luke

The world is becoming more and more digital, so if small businesses want to survive and continue to get business, they need to shift their marketing efforts online.

However, most of them don’t have the money, time, or knowledge on how to do so. So I have launched The Small Business Digital Roadmap is designed to give you exactly what you need to know to get started with online marketing, without having to waste time and effort scouring the Internet for the answers.

All the information in this program is concise and user friendly, so even with no prior digital marketing experience, you can benefit. Finally, the strategies taught in this course have been tested and proven to work for small businesses, so you will be able to generate the same if not better results than hiring a marketing company.

The best part: you only have to pay a one time fee and you get access to the program for life. So how did he speed through to where he is today, by finding out the right answers to marketing that he could then test out himself.

And why as a young man did he have the desire to start his own business, and as many find out it might seem easy from the front, but the backend is very very difficult.

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Luke Hyde.

Law of Attraction Or Simply Massive Action...that is the question today.

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who shows brilliantly that in life you are never too old to start building your dream. He is a airline pilot, sailor, adventurer, and an author and an avid listener of Join Up Dots. And that my friends is the golden ticket to getting on the show, to highlight your own story to the world. As he says "Following a life changing experience in my 20s, I discovered that our limiting inner beliefs often keep us tethered to mediocrity. Most people are unaware that our subconscious beliefs determine our outcomes in life, for better or for worse. When we begin to change our inner beliefs, we begin to change our outcomes. You can live the life of your dreams! It is easier than you imagine” I used the power of my subconscious mind to manifest a career as an airline pilot at age 49.  Since then, I have written three books and know I will become a successful author and ‘in demand’ speaker, using the techniques taught by Joseph Murphy, Napoleon Hill, Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins, Louise Hay, Esther Hicks,  Jack Canfield, Richard Bach, and many others. So is this a man who is all woo woo and sits crossed legged and hums to himself for twelve hours a day? Not not of course, although the Law of Attraction for many has a bad reputation this is a man who made conscious decisions, changed his out look and got what he wanted in life by doing the right things everyday. And isn't that what we talk about on Join Up Dots? And so our guest went from miserable and broke, living paycheck to paycheck while working a variety of unfulfilling jobs to financially comfortable and happy. Living on a golf course in Southern California, with views to the Pacific Ocean, with his wife and two cats. So is this something that anyone can do, or does it need a team of mentors, support and years of training? And where do people go wrong, is it the personal belief, or trying something that others dont quite understand? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr. Robert Lawrence. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Robert Lawrence such as: How we have so many opportunities in life nowadays due to the internet that its untrue. Log on, look around and see what the world is doing - could you do the same? Why focus and visualization in our lives is so important - If we dont know where we are heading then how can we possibly arrive where we want? Robert shares how he has managed to create a life that is totally under his control. Time is so valuable if you can learn that you are the master of time. and lastly…. Why it is so important to get our of your own head, embrace looking stupid and shout out to the world "That ain't too bad really......what more can you throw at me". Once we embrace the feeling that life is what we make it, good feelings and bad then we are on our way.

Cody Berman co founder of Gold City Ventures is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast.

This is a man with quite a story of success, focus and working hard to make things happen. Cody Berman was 6 months into his banking job when he decided he never wanted to work in corporate again.

Sometime people take years to get the message, but this was obvious...but what could he do? Well he started a disc golf manufacturing company, started an Etsy business selling digital downloads for the holidays (Halloween party invites, letters to Santa, etc), lived below his means, and picked up unit after unit of real estate during the pandemic.

He's now splitting his time traveling the world and fixing up an old lake house. How The E-Printables Dots Joined Up For Cody As he says "Side hustling has literally transformed my life. On January 31, 2019 I quit my corporate banking job when my side hustle income started to cover the cost of my lifestyle... and since then I've never looked back!" He spent the last month traveling through the Greek Islands while bringing in a six figure annual income with online business.

Cody's goal is financial independence. When he isn't building his own financial independence, he blogs, podcasts, and runs his business helping others get Etsy businesses up and running through Gold City Ventures.

So do people make building an online business harder than it really is in his opinion? And of course with everything great success there are downsides to explore and encounter so what has been his biggest?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one Cody Berman

Hello to everyone who has either stumbled across us for the first time, or made this their daily port of call as they search for the magic ingredient in their lives

Growing confidence and not just a little bit, but lots of it.

Join Up Dots is now the number one confidence resource online today, and we can say that with all the confidence in the world 🙂

Did you see what we did there?

Well you have to be confident don’t you, it’s what makes the world fun.

It’s what makes your life fun, and fills you with more energy than you could possibly hope to have.

It’s rocket power.

It’s the worlds biggest springy shoes, bouncing you across the globe.

And best of all……..every single one of you has more confidence in your little finger than the whole of the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Oceans put together.

I kid you not….you are literally over flowing with confidence, and you have been since the moment you were born.

But of course you don’t believe us at all.

You don’t think you have any of this god given rocket fuel, or you wouldn’t have been Googling for help on the subject.

You think that everybody else can do stuff that fills you with fear and dread, leaving you pulling your neck in like the most scaredy pants Ninja Turtle.

You think that they have super talents that you don’t….which quite frankly my sexy followers is a complete crock of ****!!”

So let’s start with giving you an understanding of where confidence lives, and then we can start working with you, as you turn the tap and see the stuff gushing out all over the place.

 

Where Does Confidence Live?

You might have guessed that we were going to say this, but confidence lives within you already.

Confidence is nothing more than having the ability to tackle something head on without fearing the end result.

I will say that again.

It is about tackling something that you are not sure you can do head on, even if there is a chance that you won’t be successful.

And you, me and everybody can do that.

We can attempt things that we think we won’t be able to do, as long as we say “Oh well, that was a big screw up….let’s try it again.”

Are you with me, my confidence seeking padawans?

So let’s think of all the things that you have gone out and done, even though you won’t have got it right in the very beginning.

You didn’t think as babies for example “There is no way I am going to be able to walk…..I know I need to Google “Confidence” and get help if I am ever going to get off this floor!

Although if you did you would have been either supremely confident as a baby, or just very weird and scary.

It’s going to be the Chucky Baby version I will plump for…..not good.

When you were a baby you simply went for something and tried, fell over, tried, fell over, got wobbly and then stood, whilst everybody applauded you.

Well done, you are a confidence master of the highest order…hurrah for you, and hurrah for all the babies in the world that are showing us adults what confidence truly means.

Now move onto a young child and someone throws a ball in your direction.

More often than not you would have threw your arms up, closed your eyes in case you got hit by the ball……and then got a whack right on the nose as the ball did exactly what you thought it would do.

But wait….we have a cunning plan. what if the next time we keep our eyes open and watch the ball as it flies in the air.

Perhaps, just perhaps, we might be able to catch it without suffering a nasal trauma??

We have found the confidence to minimise the risks and give it another go

 

How You Can Start Building Confidence In Your Life

]Confidence is all about building routines into your life and accepting that everything needs to start at the lowest level.

You need to say “Right guys, I am here for a reason. I want to be more confident. I want to have the ability to step out of my comfort zone. I am willing to be my baby-self and fall over every once in awhile.”

And if you are nodding in agreement and saying to yourself “Yeah, ok I can do that. I can have a few setbacks, as I know from every setback I have I will learn something to stop it happening again” then you have found the tiniest crumb of confidence leading you to the overflowing geyser of confidence waiting to explode across your living room.

So good for you.

Give yourself a pat on the back

Or if you have very short arms, get someone else to pat you on the back (you can pretend that you are choking on something if it makes it easier to ask ?  )

Now if you are thinking to yourself…the last thing that i want is to look stupid. I am seeking answers to my confidence issues, so how the hell will this work?”

Then sorry, you are not at the right point to start changing your life.

You have a closed off mindset which is locking the doors to finding any confidence in yourself.

GET OVER YOURSELF AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR SITUATION

Sorry to shout, but you have to be told.

Confidence leads from action taking.

And every-bit of action that you make comes from you deciding to make a decision to do something.

The more things you do the more times you will accept and learn from your failures, until those failures become less and less and you are confident with what you are doing.

So which of you feel that you aren’t confident anymore??

Come on put your hands up so I can see you??

Nobody??

Ok. good I am confident that I can go and do something else now, and you will all be ok!!

Performative Speaking expert Robbie Crabtree is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast.

Over the last 8 years, our guest has worked as a prosecutor, defence lawyer, and civil rights lawyer. He also taught Persuasive Speaking at Southern Methodist University Law School and coached SMU’s National Mock Trial team.

He started his career handling 102 jury trials... including murder and child abuse cases.

During his time as a trial lawyer, he began getting messages from founders and entrepreneurs looking for help with storytelling, persuasion, and public speaking. Which was the first dot that lead him to start working to where he is today.

Then came the second dot and one case in particular that would change his life and his career forever. In what should have been an open-and-shut case, he used his logic and reason to appeal to “just the facts,” but he lost that case.

He lost because he focused in on the facts...the cold hard facts. Whilst the opposing lawyer created images, and told stories to build up a feeling of support for the accused.
