Steven SashenTodays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Podcast interview, quite simply appears to have stumbled onto something and then like all great ideas ran with it.

From starting a business from his bedroom as a bit of a joke “and those are his words” Mr Steven Sashen has created a business which is now thriving.

With an office, employees and a lot of late nights, alongside his partner Lena the two have developed “Xero Shoes” a lightweight sandal, which gives the feeling of running barefoot, whilst protecting your precious toes from stones, injury inducing objects…and I suppose dog mess too.

That last one is worth the price of a pair of these shoes alone!

But its not all business, as with a few different content producing websites online (one that I have to discuss called the Anti Guru blog), a company that helps budding scriptwriters create the next American masterpiece, and being a published author of “Scriptwriting Secrets – Writing Your Million Dollar Story. ” Steven fills his spare time with go-kart racing, miniature golf, bowling and on the 1st of January each year cracking open the ice and jumping into the Boulder Reservoir.

So is this man a creative action taker, or simply a lunatic…..come on the 1st of January going swimming!

Added to that he is also one of the fastest over 50 year olds in the whole of America too!

So how has Steven Sashen done it?

How did he do what so many people dream off, and create a future that is not only financially promising, but sounds like a lot of fun too?

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 Steven Sashen.

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:

How he would like to punch Steve Jobs in the face!

How he has turned a treadmill into his office desk….and now looks like a large hamster!

How he needs his wife to anchor his enthusiasm for new ideas!

How he most certainly believes that he has had his share of luck in his life!

And lastly……

How I couldn’t convince him that a small banjo player on every corner is what we all need!
