Our guest on todays Join Up Dots Podcast interview is Mr Callum Laing, a New Zealander that has started, built, bought and sold half a dozen businesses in a range of industries across two continents.
He has hustle flooding though every vein, as he has powered himself to being classed as one of the most connected people in Asia, whilst enduring his fair share of painful crashes too!
He is the owner of Fitness-Buffet a company delivering employee wellness solutions in 11 countries, and he is also the CEO of Entrevo Asia, a company that runs 40 week Growth Accelerator programs allowing executives and business owners to become a ‘Key Person of Influence’ in their industry.
A company whose vision is a world full of entrepreneurial people solving meaningful problems.
But this is just part of the story, as when you look at Callums background, there seems to be a strong decision maker, who is willing to take calculated risks to build the future that we wants.
He is willing to do the unusal if it steps him forward to were he wants to be, starting way back in 1999 when he co founded Netherlands based Telco Management consultancy and recruitment company, which to me is a fascinating moment in his life.
Wouldn’t it have been easier to start building in his hometown and country of birth, or perhaps he did, and we have even more dots to join up in his life.
Well lets find out what makes this guy tick, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Callum Laing.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
How we are losing the entrepreneurial spirit of the youngsters of the world, who haven’t got the freedom of location that we had many years ago.
How successful entrepreneurs are the ones not chasing the pack, but focus purely on the value they can provide to their customers.
Why the vast majority of entrepreneurs will struggle if they haven’t performed the necessary pre work before undertaking their latest venture.
Why he wont invest in any of his ideas, without getting any pre-sales first, as he can’t be guaranteed a market from his own genius.
How he once deleted the whole of Italy from the worldwide web, and spent a frantic half hour trying to get the country back online.
