But as like most the guests who have made up over 60o conversations, that initial thought of “I like what this guy is doing” only touches the surface of his work.
He is a Writer, filmmaker, actor, TEDx speaker, multiple award-winning self-help author, poet, children’s author, radio personality, finisher of over 50 triathlons (including 4 Ironman distance races), cross-country bicyclist and someone that believes in waking people up.
Yes, he is a man with a similar mission to Join Up Dots
Come on people, you are only on this planet once, so lets get going. Lets take a step into the scary zone and see what we can deal with.
In addition to writing, speaking and acting in TV and film, he enjoys creating his own projects that carry inspiring, positive and conscious messages.
His most recent project was the short film Searching for Happiness, which is now online and can be watched on his website and YouTube.
The story focuses on an unhappy man, alone and unloved, who struggles to find meaning in his black and white reality. While over the course of a day, he learns that it is through kindness and our connection to others that we find true happiness.
So how does one man wake up himself to start going after something so much bigger than what one could hope to achieve on their own?
And has he truly found happiness, or is this a search that will never end?
Well lets find out as we bring onto to the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr G Brian Benson
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with G Brian Benson such as:
How he remembers getting burned out after working in his family business, and knowing he had to make a change (even though he had no idea what that change might be)
Why he was so aware that he had to break out of his comfort zone before creating the life that he wanted, by signing up for speaking and acting classes.
Why it is so difficult to bridge the gap from following your muse into turning it into a full-time income, but is certainly possible if you have the passion.
How he looks back on his life and can see a period that he wasn’t ready for the success that he craved. He had to go past the point and wait for it to catch him up.
