Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Ani Alexander, someone that I am proud to say has become one of my closest friends in the world.
I have never met her, don’t know too much about her personal life, but can honestly say she has become one of the people that has helped me so much as Join Up Dots keeps on growing.
She has a fascinating story, which starts by being born in a country that now is no longer there, the soviet union, and as teenager loved to write.
In her heart she believes that everyone has a story to tell, and would like nothing more than putting pen to paper and getting creative as a child.
But as we see time and time again, the thing that we liked as kids somehow got forgotten as we grow into adulthood.
And instead of thinking “Lets make a career out of something that I love doing”…which of course is the sensible thing to do, she instead went into the corporate world.
And joined the masses.
Yes, for the next twelve years Ani Alexander followed a path that left her with a paycheck every month, but nothing more. She was lost and definitely feeling uninspired.
So she took the leap of faith and went for it on her own
And now with her business flourishing, her network of aspiring authors flocking to help her get them in the bestsellers list, life is getting better everyday.
She is also the author of three books “Emotional Moments”, “Dream Down” and “Highfall”
But if this sounds like an easy transition then think again.
I know her well, and I know the hustle and work ethic that it is taking to get to the point she wants to be.
She is climbing up the ladder of success everyday, one rung at a time even when exhausted, even when she was unsure she could climb any higher?
So how does she keep herself going when sometimes the world seems against her?
And why did she feel along with everything else on her plate, she would go and conquer the world by recording the Write 2 b Read podcasts in English, not her natural tongue.
Well lets find out as we bring on to the show to start joining up dots the one and only Ani Alexander
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How she had to overcome the fears about releasing her own podcast due to her belief that her accent would hold her back. She didn’t realise that this was a key part of what makes her who she is.
How a great way to find your path in life is to simply get curious look around and see what other people are doing that excites you.
How solving peoples problems is a sure fire way to create a great income for yourself. Look for the problems and then supply the answer
How she believes that the fall of the Soviet Union was a great thing and allowed freedom of choice and the prospect of greater opportunities for everyone.
Why she feels that very few people in their younger years can go against the social norm, and will do what is expected and not what they should do that’s best for them.
