Todays guest, joining on the Join Up Dots podcast interview, is Thomas Patrick Levy, a man who is travelling a path that is 100% true to himself.
As a younger man, he was classed as an at risk teenager, but still progressed to earn a B.A. in English.
However continuing his studies did not go to plan, and although he had great talent, studying at Antioch University was not for him, and Thomas Patrick Levy dropped out of his MFA in Writing course.
And then it seems to me without a clear idea of how to build a future, he lurched from one position to another and then back again, all the while increasing the debit on his credit card bills.
He was depressed, overweight, constantly in pyjamas, and lost, but knew that he had something inside that he wanted to express to the world.
As he says “we need something that fulfills us creatively. Everyone does. It doesn’t matter whether or not you think of yourself as an artist or not. Artists aren’t the only ones who do creative things. Cooks are creative, repossession agents are creative, my accountant is creative, my dad — who owns and runs a wholesale florist — is creative”
He is now the co-owner of codeBOX a web development company, and has released two self penned publication to the world.
So lets discuss his struggles, and his successes, and everything else in between, as we start joining up the dots with the one and only, Thomas Patrick Levy.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How owning your own business is 95% emotional and 5% business, but amazingly rewarding!
How Thomas Patrick Levy believes the words of Steve Jobs, but wants to add “Work harder than you have ever worked before” to the mix!
How he got to hate working for other people so knew he had to go it alone!
How he smashed up a shower cubicle in a blind range, which actually helped him make the steps to a better future!
How Thomas Patrick Levy loved Lego as a child, and still loves building things today…joining up those dots eh!!
How he found the words of Dylan Thomas and knew that he had to start being creative in his life!
