James-NordTodays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview is Mr James Nord, a man who takes fashion very seriously.

Unlike the majority of men in the world who throw on a few items, and that is the grooming done, he prides himself on looking not just like he got dressed, but that he was designed for the event.

Even to wearing a tie at the weekend….yep I kid you not.

James Nord’s image is one of sophisticated class, and so it’s not a surprise that with a love of looking good, his career has moved towards the fashion industry since arriving in New York City.

A dreamer, and a thinker, he seems to have a naturally strong competitive streak, that has run through much of his life since growing up in Georgia.

If he is going to do something then he doesn’t want to be just of those guys that is happy to simply be taking part. He wants to win.

He excelled at wrestling, and racquetball and for a while was almost invincible at both but just fell short at greatness and state recognition.

But it is fascinating to see someone’s life come together in such a way that you can see the elements he displayed early on his life being displayed with such force.

James Nord has moved through jobs at quite a speed, not staying much longer than a year at most, but all the while learning the skills, and fine tuning the talents which has led him along with his business partner Richard to launch Fohr card.

They founded Fohr card with the purpose of bringing together two groups of people who share a love for storytelling, creative bloggers and creative brands.

Alone, each can create beautiful stories.

Together they believe they can create even greater ones.

It is that passion to connect and inspire which is the corner stone to everything that he does.

So what is about visuals and storytelling that so thrills him daily?

And where does he see his vision developing in the future?

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Mr James Nord.

Show Highlights

During the episode we discussed such weighty topics with James Nord such as

How fashions and personal style are very different areas…..which made me realise that I’m not fashionable but I do have personal style Whoo Hoo!!

How the ideas in the beginning are not overly important, but the execution is vital to the success you want!

If you are feeling content with yourself then you should check in and audit…..Contentment is when things can go badly wrong!
