Podcast 709: Its Hard But That’s Ok

It’s a truth that so many people will speak, or at least they convince themselves that it is a truth.

“That if it was that easy then everyone would be doing it”

They say those words when they dont want to put themselves into the position to fail, and so cling onto this truth as a comfort blanket against failure.

So is it easy to become an entrepreneur?

Thomas Smallwood: The Armchair Mountaineer Redesigns His Life

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man with an amazing story of taking life by the scruff of the neck and turning full circle to where he wanted to be.

As he says “After failing to get much of an education I set up an online business, selling books. This fuelled my passion for all things literary but the business failed. In order to pay the mortgage I started work stacking supermarket shelves at night. During the day I made a career plan to turn things around.

In late 2004 I joined the still relatively young online gambling industry, working in a call centre. 5 years later I co-founded a company (which I subsequently sold) and went on to manage operations in the UK, Central and Eastern Europe. From 2013 to 2016 I was CEO of SKS365 Group.

Mariagrazia Buttitta: Beating Depression And Changing Lives

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who I am delighted to have on the show.

The reason why should be quite clear as we speak to her.

Join Up Dots has always been about letting you the listener grow the confidence to tackle all obstacles head on.

Smash doors in walls where there was no chance of escaping and living the life that you deserve.

Well today’s guest is doing all that and more.

Drew Davis: Startup Magic

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who has worked so hard to where he is today, he has more lessons learned before the age of 30 than most people aged…well 30.

He is proof that hard-work and determination pay off’s as he climbed the ladder of the restaurant industry as many do: with a great deal of empathy, a little bit of luck, and a massive amount of overconfidence.

After graduating from Harvard in 2009, he worked his way up from being a busboy in Boston to being a beverage director for Momofuku in New York City, where he managed the buying, pricing, and selling of wine, beer, and spirits for the restaurant.

Robert Williscroft: Debunking Expert Lies

My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who connected with the show by email, asking to appear.

And believe me, we get so many of them nowadays that sometimes you don’t give them quite the focus that perhaps you should.

This wasn’t the case with today’s guest who hit us with “I’ve lived in the South Pole for 13 months! My life is an ongoing adventure with worldly experiences including (but not limited to) having spent 22 months UNDERWATER on nuclear submarines, 13 months at the geographic South Pole conducting atmospheric research, 3 years shipboard in the arctic, and 1 year shipboard on the equator conducting ocean floor studies!

I have written extensively on terrorism and related subjects, and authored the bestselling current events book, “The Chicken Little Agenda – Debunking Experts’ Lies,” wherein I assure your listening audience that the sky is not falling!”
