Ed Roman: Finding The Magic In The Creative Process

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an Award-winning singer/songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist from Shelburne, Ontario, Canada.

And if that sounds like a pretty standard introduction then think again.

As this guy is not normal, in any shape or form, and to be honest this was one of the hardest introductions to write as it is hard to pin down the guy.

He is hugely positive. Loves his music. Is up for a laugh. Loves entertaining. But also is a deeply sensitive guy inspiring the world to do their own thing and love their lives in the process.

Michelle McQuaid: Developing The Strengths Of The World By Playing

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady from Melbourne Australia who has one belief in life.

That all of us are capable of being a bigger, brighter version of ourselves than we give ourselves the opportunity to be.

Her official bio states that she is “is a best-selling author, workplace well being teacher and playful change activator” which is of course true but is not something that occurs by magic.

Back in 1994, she was working for PR Works as a general manager where she built a profitable IT portfolio, as well as creating a media training service for CEOS.

Which I find fascinating, as someone who is now firmly entrenched in the people development world, this wasn’t an area of her life that just burst into being after several decades.

Simone Vicenzi

Simone Vincenzi : Freeing Himself From His Self-Image To Create Success

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man with a similar career path to myself.

And a man who also has a desire to see the world flourish, and help individuals across the globe to grow exponentially, becoming their greatest versions.

But of course to get to that point, you truly have to go through a journey of discovery yourself, to find your inner skills that make you unique and valuable to everyone.

And it would be fair to say that just a few years ago, our guest was many many steps away from discovering their purpose in life.

He was working in a restaurant in Notting Hill as a waiter, as he had been doing since the age of 15, and had certain mental restrictions should we say, that were holding him back from creating his dream life.

Eddy Mann

Eddy Mann: Travelling The Highways Of America With His Guitar

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an musician, songwriter, worship leader, teacher, speaker, coach, husband, and father.

It’s certainly true to say that he has a lot of plates spinning at one time.

But at his core you can tell that he is a family man, and although everything in his life holds a significance to him, it’s family that ties it all together.

Right from the early days his musical output has been nurtured and encouraged by the family atmosphere that he found himself in.

Podcast 572: Join Up Dots Live From Spain – Why Do We All Copy What’s Been Done Before?

Today’s episode is a soloshow as your host David Ralph is on location in Spain.

So in this episode he discusses why is it in life that so many people decide that they are going to do something new and exciting, and then quite simply copy what has been done before?

We see so many times that the world fails to grasp that the easiest way to success is by finding the thing that they love doing and then building a business around this.

It is the absolute quickest route, as when things get hard, the love will push you through the tough times.

The ability to want to do it more and more (just because you want to do it) is the key to it all.

And so in this episode of Join Up Dots, your friendly neighbourhood host live from Spain, shares his feelings on what we should do to make things happy in our lives.

Enjoy!

Podcast 571 : Meryl Johnston: Bean Ninjas Making Book-Keeping Sexy Across The World

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who was recommended to me by Danny Flood who appeared on episode 293 of the show.

He said to me “I have a friend that you have to have on the show, as she has done something that all entrepreneurs want to achieve.”

I said to him “What’s that Danny…tell me more!”

And this is what he told me.

Our guest went from running a time-sucking accounting consulting firm where she could never “turn off” from work to create a profitable productive service based business.

And best of all this company has grown from 0-$15k MRR in 12 months, while scaling herself out of the operations to surf and spend time with family.
