Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast interview, is Mr James Clouser, a man who has travelled an usual path to where he is today.
Starting as a musician working in the church full-time, he worked hard at delivering the kind of music that inspires, and touches the soul.
But like all entrepreneurs that awake one day with the realisation that they aren’t where they want to be in life, James Clouser was the same.
He awoke one morning with the realisation that the potential that he knew was in him, just waiting to be unleashed on the world was not being delivered to the people that could use it most.
But who where those people?
How can you transform from a church musician to a mover and shaker that is creating success all around them?
Well opportunities to find your true path in life, can come from the most unexpected sources, and James’s case it came from someone very close to home.
Writing an advertisement for his wife’s music studio, he was astonished and of course very pleased to find his ad produced 400% return on investment.
And after selling $50,000.00 of pipe organs in one month, he realised that he had made the step, and created a real business that he could develop for himself and his flourishing portfolio of clients.
So how did James Clouser do it?
What strategies did he use to quite literally become a copywriting overnight success?
And more importantly, why did that untapped passion lay dormant for so long?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only James Clouser
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How he came from a blue-collar background and had very little direction from his parents…especially his father who feared his sons dreams of a better life!
How he was programmed as a young man to think that making a lot of money was a bad thing!
How he was a lone wolf and found it difficult to fit in with his peer group!
How he was willing to jump off the train, as he knew that it was taking him to a bad place!
How Cortez landed in the Americas and then burnt all his boats….telling his men you have one choice now, make a new world for yourselves or die!
How he believes anything is possible, and lives by the words “What’s going to happen if I don’t start!”
How she believes that we should find the one good thing, and just focus on that until success!
