Damion Lupo: Disrupting Wall Street

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who seems to me was certainly born with the entrepreneurial genes.

Starting his first business at age 11, (even hiring his parents for logistics support), over the last quarter century he’s started and owned more than 30 different companies including an insurance agency, precious metals firms, a venture capital company, a coaching and consulting firm, and more than a dozen real estate investment and development companies.

He’s also the founder of Yokido ™, his own martial arts and holds 3 other black belts.

But it hasn’t all been plain sailing in his life, as by age 27 he became a millionaire, and then lost everything (including his Ferrari, girlfriend, and even his dog) before going again in a new direction.

But it seems to me that at his core he is a man who believes in personal control, and having the ability to show the world how we can free ourselves from the control that money worries have over our lives.

Bree Noble: From Bank Notes To Music Notes (And Everything In Between)

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who is nothing but decisive when she knows what she wants in life.

Starting her career back in 1999 she performed the role of Finance Director for one of the top 15 Opera companies in the US for ten years, until in 2009 the company closed due to financial difficulties.

And I guess we will find out on the show if she would have stayed in the position if this hadn’t occurred but the fact is it did

Perry Marshall

Perry Marshall: From Darwin To Evolution 2.0

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is an a man who Entrepreneur Magazine states, “This guy is the #1 author and world’s most-quoted consultant on Google Advertising. He has helped over 100,000 advertisers save literally billions of dollars in AdWords stupidity tax.”

He is an author, speaker, engineer and world-renowned business consultant in Chicago.

And now with a decade of research, he brings a fresh perspective to the 150-year old evolution debate…..he brings about a very different view to what Darwin would have classed as fact.

How has he done this?

How has he managed to dissect what the world has believed is fact?

Adrian Cahill

Adrian Cahill: Learning To Celebrate His Successes And Loving Life

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

He is the co-creator of MOTIVATE International (formerly MOTIVATE Shanghai) which is a meeting place for personal and professional development in one of the worlds biggest cities (28million+ people).

This was one of the first, if not the first centres to bring personal development to the mainstream public

However, although it seems he has found his place this is quite a distance from where he first started.

Philip McKernan

Philip Mckernan: Changing The World By Give And Grow

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who has aligned his passions, his dreams and his talents in the world of give, give, give.

But it wasn’t always the case.

For many years he operated in a way that was certainly not born out of his strengths, but was due to his work effort and ability to see opportunities and go for them.

As he says “I spent most of my life wearing masks pretending to be important to hide my own deeper insecurities. Despite building multi million dollar businesses, becoming a best selling author and buying real estate in 7 different countries, I felt an emptiness.”

You see all the time he was walking a path that was not his own.

Evita Ochel: Health Fitness And Passion Starts With Mindset

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who believes one hundred percent in the words of Joseph Campbell (Follow your bliss and the Universe will open doors, where there were only walls.)

But for many years her thoughts were driven by expectations far from remarkable,

She was solid, dependable and in a career which was nothing more than traditional.

As she says “I became a senior high school science teacher, driven by my passion for teaching about health and the human body. I loved and excelled in my work, and thought I would retire from this position in my elderly years. However, after a deeply transformative and unexpected personal and spiritual awakening that began in 2006, I ended up resigning from my teaching position and officially retiring in 2009.
