My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man whose careers have taken him across the globe and exposed him to leaders, master communicators, persuaders, influences, and negotiators in hundreds of nations and across many different cultures.
Starting his career back in 1985, as an attorney assigned to large litigation matters such as aviation litigation and tobacco litigation it was obvious that this was a young man full of ambition,
Moving through a few quick career steps, it seems obvious to an outsider than upon creating the company Success technologies he had found the thing that he was waiting to do.
He now uses his experience to teach leadership, sales and marketing, persuasion, influence, interrogation, and negotiation to audiences ranging from computer hackers turned “good guys” to entrepreneurs, the military and to civilians.
Appearing on NPR, MindTV, PBS, Fox News, and on over 120 radio and television programs it is with little surprise that he has also been flourishing within hes own freelance keynote speaking business.
He has authored several books related to persuasion, influence and business, and co-authored Einstein’s Business with M. Scott Peck, Steven Covey, and many other folk, whilst still being a practising lawyer.
So how does he manage to do all these things whilst still keeping his hair, his sanity and managing to spend anytime with his family?
And what is the area, if it was all taken away from him that he would now like to step into, bringing his talents to a whole new audience?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Dave Frees
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Dave Frees such as:
Why Dave believes that an important lesson to learn in life, is to know that there is always someone better or cleverer in you life. So accept that fact and find those people to use their skills.
How he now realises that he was born in a very entrepreneurial history going back for any any generations, and was always going to create something remarkable, it was born in him.
Why there are so many people now in the world that consciously create a thirty hour work week as their standard, due to the increased productivity that they ensure they have in that time.
Why he saw the quote “Stop Doing Stupid Stuff” as a hugely powerful statement to offer to the world. Don’t just make your self look busy, but do the right stuff everytime.
