Today’s guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Mr Dan Martell, an entrepreneur who could quite rightly claims to have had two lives.
And in classic Join Up Dots style, both lives are so closely intertwined that one wouldn’t have been possible without the other.
As a young man, he was on a path that wasn’t good.
Getting into trouble with the law and spending time in jail on drug offences his life was heading one way and one way only.
But in all our lives we are provided opportunities in the strangest of places that can help us become what we want to be.
It’s whether we actually spot those opportunities, that is the true issue that faces us all.
Well our guest did, and whilst in jail, Dan Martell discovered computers and set off on an entrepreneurial journey that would instantly lead to failure, and then another failure, until finally gaining traction and success came his way.
He bootstrapped Spheric Technologies, a social enterprise consulting and applications company, which grew by 150%+ each year, raked in many business awards, employed over 30 employees, before selling it in May of 2008.
And now he is on a path that is based around his own passions to support himself and his family, whilst also giving back to the world in the form of several charitable organisations.
So does he look back on his life and thank the dark times, for showing him the way?
And what made him try several times to get going in business, and still keep going when the road got hard?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Mr Dan Martell
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he believes that no matter what happens in his life, nobody can take away two things from him….the connections he has built up and his mind!
The reasons why at a drive through he will buy a cup of coffee for the complete stranger behind him and not wait to see the reaction!
The amazement he felt, when after telling a personal story he had people lining up to hug him afterwards, and the relief he now feels telling that story!
Why he feels it is so much easier for people to get the life that they want nowadays compared to even ten years ago!
Why it is so important to reach out to people who are doing what you want to do at the beginning, and plain stupidity not to!
