Todays guest ready to be interviewed on the Join Up Dots podcast is the author and entrepreneur Mr August Turak, who has had a life that can only be described as a bit different.

Not many people get to have the experiences in business and life that he has, after all who gets to study business with a bunch of Trappist monks?

I didn’t even know that monks studied business, and more importantly were extremely successful at it.

But our Mr Turak knows, and it was detailing these experiences and insights that allowed him to pen the bestseller “Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks: One CEO’s Quest for Meaning and Authenticity.”

But that is just a small part of his story, and with a background of sales, marketing, determination, spirituality, mindset, MTV and the belief that “It is in your own self interest to forget your self interest” he is someone who would make a perfect guest for multiple shows.

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs with the one and only award winning, and hugely motivational – August Turak



Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:

How a small child’s walk in the snow, singing Xmas carols might well have shown the path to the future!

How being selfless will help you find your true calling!

The less he focuses on money the more he makes!

And lastly…..

How loneliness as a youngster helped him realize that there was a better way to be!
