My guest today, on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who like so many of my guests started on the path to his current success, due to a lack of satisfaction with his situation.
His whole life seems to me to have been built upon hustle, more than personal talents.
He started his adult hustle by commissioning into the US Navy, where he decided to go after the dream of being a nuclear engineer and struggled more than he thought possible, though still achieving his aim and grabbing the dream.
But there is a famous quote which states “Sometimes on the way to a dream you get lost and find a better one” and this certainly seems to be case here.
As whilst he was in the Navy, he realised that he wasn’t going to see his family, was missing out on key events that he should have been experiencing, and just felt disconnected.
Now, as we will discuss on the show he has come full circle, and through developing online strategies, learning SEO and the wonderful world of Amazon, it looks like he has now found the true dream.
The dream that he didn’t realise at the beginning was the right one for him.
So when he was in the Navy, did he enjoy much of it, or none of it?
And do the dots in his life join up like we see time and time again, or have they started much later in life?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Dave Chesson
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Dave Chesson such as:
How all his life in the military was about following his ego and not his passions, a big mistake that he doesn’t intend to duplicate ever again.
How he loves the fact the online world is changing and he needs to be constantly up skilling and developing to stay with it
How he had a deep discussion with his wife about what they needed to start his venture, and how she supported him every step of the way
If you wait to make something perfect then you have waited too long…the mantra of everyone from Pat Flynn to well….Mr Dave Chesson himself.
