Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an entrepreneur and businessman who contacted me to see if I would be interested in his story enough to have on the show…..are you kidding me?
This guy has so many dots in his life, he is almost three quarters Dalmatian.
He is Andy Hayes, and entrepreneur and the owner and founder of Plum Deluxe, whose mission statement is to help us all live a life we love by making time every day for great moments.
It was founded in 2007 as an online community to encourage individuals across the world to create special moments that matter with friends and families.
It could be hosting a dinner party, going to a yoga class, treating themselves to a spa day with a friend, or just optimizing their daily routines to include more self care.
Doing the stuff that we put on the backburner because we are so busy.
“I would to go on a date with you sweetheart, but I have these spreadsheets to go through”….sound familiar?
With so many positive life affirming platforms brought to the world, having an element of tragedy behind it, Plum Deluxe is the same.
Andy Hayes started this company to share the lessons he learned from his mother, who lost her 6 year battle with cancer.
Of course a huge tragedy, but the manner of he farewell was nothing but inspirational
She spent the time from diagnosis to saying goodbye, making sure that she did the things that she loved.
Traveling more, seeing friends, laughing, and being the most positive individual that she could be. She made sure that she was not going to waste a second
So why do we do this people? And I am the same too.
Why do we do things that keep us away from living the life that we want?
Even if its just taking a break to go for a walk in the fresh air for an hour or so?
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 Andy Hayes
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How Americans like nothing more than not taking the annual vacation that is offered to them by their companies….madness!!
How a Boss in his company once sat down with him and gave him the advice “If you don’t leave this job you will die!” Wow that is advice that you should definitely listen to.
Why success is like an image. If you get up really close it is like a billion small dots, but only when you see all the dots come together, then you can see the true image
Why it is so important to realise that in life we have choices…..choices to do something, or choices not. And the result of those choices is down to us.
How you can’t think about the big picture you can only think about the next thing to do to move towards your goal.
