Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview, is Thom Singer an entrepreneur who it seems can have a go at most things and make a success of it.
From authoring ten books, presenting across the world, hosting his own wildly successful podcast, and generally being a very nice chap, he has the world at his feet.
But it has been a slow journey to where he is today, and one that has crossed many different areas of commercial industry.
He has worked in Law, Banking, litigation and a myriad of other organisations which has certainly helped him become the expert in branding, positioning and networking.
He has trained thousands of professionals in the art of building professional contacts that lead to increased business.
It’s not what you know, its who you know is the order of the day, and he believes that valuable business relationships will be something that will continue to provide value and opportunities to us for years and years.
If we only do it in the correct way.
Thom Singer speaks regularly at business and association conferences around the United States and beyond – and has presented to over 350 audiences during his career as a speaker.
But although he is now loving his life, and the success that he has worked so hard to gain, where did it all start?
Where did his fascination with presenting the art of networking begin?
And did he struggle himself to find the magic key to open the doors to communication and impactful interaction when he was on the first rungs of his career?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the Host of the Cool Things That Entrepreneurs Do podcast, the one and only Mr Thom Singer.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Thom Singer such as:
How as a child he wanted to be a game show host or movie star and even though he lived in LA never made any effort to live the dream.
Why there is never the wrong time to start the second part of your life, you just need to know what you want and go for it
Why so many people in life don’t have the follow through DNA and will forget the simplest things that they have promised to do.
Why it is so important to be passionate about other peoples interests whenever possible
How others believed in him far more than he believed in himself at times in his life.
How on a roadtrip his buddy stopped the car and said to him “I am fed up with your wishing so start taking action”……and he did and never looked back.
