Erik Newton: Keeping The World Together And In Love

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who has had a fascinating journey to where he is today.

Going back in time, for so many people, he would had looked liked he had the perfect career, in the perfect location, dealing with the perfect subject.

He was a former attorney,who once ran Heath-Newton LLP, the largest family law practice in the San Francisco Bay area, specialising on helping people move through the heartbreaking, but sometimes liberating stages of divorce.

As he says he has been through a thousand divorces but is still a romantic at heart, and with a never ending supply of former romantics wanting to go their separate ways, you would think that this was a job for life.

Carrie Hartunian Smith: Sending The Right Message To The Right Eyes

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who certainly seems to have found her thing in life, and is now taking that out in to the world to help others find theirs too.

With a diverse background in retail, hospitality (resort and restaurants), event production/promotions, both for and not for profit, and executive management, she built the steppeing stones to what leads to success.

And you could see that it really started to go her way after joining a start up media company in 1993.

Within this business she grew the profits from $60K a month in revenue to finishing the first year in business with $7mm, leading to the company having explosive growth each year thereafter.

After selling the media company in 2007, shee was asked to stay on with the new organisation to be an integral part of their aggressive growth strategy, acquiring 5 media companies in under 2 years.

Anna Ren: Changing The Lives Of Student Admissions With Online Business

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who is on a mission to impact millions, not allowing the obtacles of life to get in her way.

As she says “I am from New Jersey in the U.S. and was the first person in my family to go to college. My parents only made it as far as elementary and middle school.

When I look back on everything, it seems as though my dots simply aligned to take me towards my goal of pursuing a purposeful life.

It’s quite amazing to see them all join up.

Joel Capperella: The Value Of A Business Is In The Network

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who can beat me hands down in one key area of his life.

He is the father of eight children!

Yes, eight…even more than I have wrapped up in my fatherly grip.

But what makes this guy even more remarkable is when he makes decision, he goes for it big-time, such as quitting his corporate job to finally chase his dream of entrepreneurship as soon as his twins were born.

I Failed

Podcast 607: I Failed (Solo Show)

I failed big time.

I hate to admit it but I have.

There is no point in continuing the journey, when it’s quite obvious that I am nowhere near where I should be at the moment.

And how have I come to that realisation that there is not point in going on as I failed.

Well you can see it on social media, FB and the images that the world shows the world.

Everytime you see a picture on FB showing some amazing moment in someones life, you can see that you are so far behind the curve of where you want to be.

Its obvious.

Adam Hudson: Amazon Success Leads To A Life Of Happiness

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who without a doubt can call himself a serial entrepreneur.

He has built several multi-million dollar companies in both Australia and the United States, and really doesn’t look like he is slowing down in the regard to creating his own destiny.

In 2005 he co-founded one of the first crowdfunding platforms in the world which went on to raise in excess of $100M dollars for start-ups and early stage businesses.

He currently owns a cloud software business, an Amazon review company (based in Florida), a home-wares company that sells its products exclusively through Amazon into 8 countries, and Reliable Education.

None of his companies have outside investors and all are profitable.
