Podcast 517: Dan Trilk: From Corn To Iowa Weather
Today’s episode of Join Up Dots is another one of the special ones that make me really proud to bring to the world.
This is one of those shows whereby a listener of Join Up Dots, has taken so much action in their life, that they deserve to be blasted across the world.
And today’s guest is going to do just that, as he is a musician, teacher, singer, songwriter, father, husband and a man flexing the hustle muscle everyday.
Starting his love for music when he was just nine years old when he started strumming the guitar, and by the age of 12 he had formed his first band “Splat” and was performing original music at school talent shows, ice-cream socials and private parties.
And it’s all these activities at such a tender age which have the opportunity to become more than something just to do.
Actually becoming the first steps on the path to adulthood, and a life of their dreams.
But what happens when life has different plans?
What should you do when the future that you want is harder to come by than you expected?
Where you find different ways of doing it, and today’s guest has done just that.
After recording his own album “Iowa Weather” he found himself in a slump.
He was working all the hours god gave him, he was supporting his family like every father should, and his recorded album was not getting out to the world.
And that is where we will begin today’s show, as although I have never met him but I am proud to call him my guitar twanging buddy.
So has he ever been a normal employee, sitting in a cubicle waiting until 17:00pm to arrive so he can scamper home….free from the days hassles?
Or has he set out on on his path joining up his dots, with no plan B of any shape or form?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Dan Trilk.
During the show we discussed such weight subjects with Mr Dan Trilk such as:
How he would find the muse in his life to write songs, found the muse to write wrote the songs way back when he
Why even someone as high profile as Howard Stern has to get over himself and get out into the world and make things happen.
Why he finds, like so many people across the globe, that it is a struggle to find more time in his day to get things done and how he can solve this problem.
You will hear one of the most amazing mashups that you will ever hear in your life, a John Denver, Rick Astley combo….could you want anymore in your life?
