Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Mr Thomas Umstattd, a man who states that he is a Christ Follower, CEO of Author Media, Professional Speaker, Podcaster, WordPress Lover, Marketer, Political Trouble Maker, & Homeschool Graduate.
Which means that the conversations today can literally go anywhere, and he will have an opinion on it….so what shall I start with first…religion or politics?
Well let’s start with the fact that since building his first website at the age of thirteen, our guest has been fascinated with communication whether its in the written word or by presenting his message in award winning presentations across America.
He believes in connecting with people across the globe, and so it wasn’t too much of a surprise to see that the early party of his career led heavily towards directing people on the political campaign trail.
For several years Thomas Umstattd assisted political hopefuls to run their campaign at grass roots level by recruiting, training and organising volunteers to knock on doors and convince those voters that they met, that their boss was the way forward.
But it was when he took this love of influencing and communicating, and combined it with his love of wordpress and website building that his career really started gaining speed.
And in 2008 he created Umstattd Media focusing on social media consulting, web design, and helping authors and businesses get the most out of the web.
This later changed to Castle Media Group and the rest as they is history.
So what it is it about communication that really lights him up inside, and helps him explode the potential opportunities all around him?
And does he have any design to go full circle and bring his skills back into the political environment?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Thomas Umstattd Jr.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Thomas Umstattd such as:
How his Dad always told him that success is a poor teacher, and that there are only certain lesson that failure can teach.
How he hopes that he never loses his curiosity in life, as he can see so many teens losing their way in life as they lose the curiosity that subsequently can help find the passion that they are seeking!
The reasons why he is so inspired with the life of Benjamin Franklin, and also the words of Death bed Thomas!
His memories of being a child and hiding from the police who were anti the local home-schooling regime favoured by parents!
The surprise he felt to find a bog post on courtship going viral on the internet, and the opportunities that this is now bringing his way!
