Introducing Mike Sowden
Mike Sowden is todays guest ready for the latest Join Up Dots podcast interview.
Mike is a man who from the first moments of his life has been wandering the world.
Born on an RAF base in Germany, he grew up in Cyprus.
Then he was reluctantly brought to the United Kingdom by his parents as a teenager.
And what did he do?
The young Mike Sowden instantly complained about the rain…..get over it….that’s what we have in the United Kingdom.
Was the travelling a chore? Was the moving from country to country the thing that our guest dreaded.
No far from it.
The experiences, different cultures, and contrasting landscapes embedded a love of adventure.
Imagery and story combined as something he knew could take him on a path that was true to his unique self.
How The Dots Joined Up For Mike Sowden
Mike loved the idea of being a professional travel writer.
So even though he knew his path, and knew what he wanted to create, he still only focused on his dream as a side project, until after what he believed was a “heart-attack” he finally started the action that he needed to kick everything off.
Quitting his job, Mr Sowden is now at the time of writing a freelance writer of no clearly fixed abode.
We might find him in the UK, escaping to the Mediterranean, or as he says “even gallivanting across some bleak European hillside, bound for disaster” – which is how he finds material to write about.
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 Mr Mike Sowden.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How something that can seem like the worse thing in the world, might actually be a blessing in disguise!
How by confronting the thing that frightens you most is the thing you should always do!
How Russell Crowe is not the best actor at doing accents in the world!
How we all know our passions that can lead to the life of our dreams, if we only look closely enough!
