    Chris Randall is today's guest on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast interview. He is a man who first appeared on the show in the first year of Join Up Dots, back in episode 256. During the show we discussed how he got his coaching business up and running, and the steps he took to find the niche that suited him best. He provides his life changing method “Flowcoaching” where he shows the world how to lead a highly successful and well rewarded life doing what matters most to them He believes as I do that it can also transform any business into a happy, creative and passionate place that inspirational people seek out. You enjoy yourself more, get more things done, and therefore have more free time for yourself. Yep cake and eat it time. But what is flowcoaching and why is it the thing that even if we don't get coached in it, we have all experienced it in our lives time and time again. How The Dots Joined Up For Chris Well its that amazing state that you can find yourself in when you literally lose hours at a time when performing a task. You get so engrossed in the activity that you look at the clock and think “God it feels that I just had breakfast and it's lunchtime already!” Well, it might have been a while since you last felt that feeling whilst working in your current job or occupation. And that is where our guest comes in. In a nutshell, he is a business, leadership and talent coach who helps you to figure out what you do best and then work with you to do it better. So how do we get ourselves into this state if we spend the majority of our time thinking "ooh just got five minutes until the next thing i have to do!"? And what is the part of the business that took him by surprise as he built it to where it is today? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only "Mr Flowcoacher Chris Randall.

As we have seen from more and more guests who have appeared on the show, there comes a point in the entrepreneurial journey when they start questioning the chase. They are spending their time chasing after more listeners, more email signups, more conversions....more more more and it doesn't feel like how they imagines a successful business to feel. They end up saying no to family commitments as they are too busy. They walk the road to burnout with no other option until now. Perhaps they dont need to.

    Luke Hyde is our guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast. He is a 20 year old entrepreneur who has a digital marketing agency whose clients are small businesses.  It wasn't an obvious route to where he was today, but it was one that wouldn't have occurred without taking action..perhaps imperfect action but he started. As he says "I was listening to podcasts while mopping floors in a church and decided to learn everything I could about digital marketing., and now today I am an agency owner.  The reason that he wanted to develop his online skills was when he realised that many small business are struggling right now. He goes on to say "If your business is struggling, you're not alone. 2020 was hard for everyone, especially small businesses. My own business was affected last year, and it was during this year I realized a massive problem. How The Dots Joined Up For Luke The world is becoming more and more digital, so if small businesses want to survive and continue to get business, they need to shift their marketing efforts online. However, most of them don't have the money, time, or knowledge on how to do so. So I have launched The Small Business Digital Roadmap is designed to give you exactly what you need to know to get started with online marketing, without having to waste time and effort scouring the Internet for the answers. All the information in this program is concise and user friendly, so even with no prior digital marketing experience, you can benefit. Finally, the strategies taught in this course have been tested and proven to work for small businesses, so you will be able to generate the same if not better results than hiring a marketing company. The best part: you only have to pay a one time fee and you get access to the program for life. So how did he speed through to where he is today, by finding out the right answers to marketing that he could then test out himself. And why as a young man did he have the desire to start his own business, and as many find out it might seem easy from the front, but the backend is very very difficult. Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Luke Hyde.

During his time as a trial lawyer, he began getting messages from founders and entrepreneurs looking for help with storytelling, persuasion, and public speaking. Which was the first dot that lead him to start working to where he is today. Then came the second dot and one case in particular that would change his life and his career forever. In what should have been an open-and-shut case, he used his logic and reason to appeal to “just the facts,” but he lost that case. He lost because he focused in on the facts...the cold hard facts. Whilst the opposing lawyer created images, and told stories to build up a feeling of support for the accused.

    Hi David, i cant imagine how many emails you get from listeners so would be amazed if you get to see this one. But actually i guess it doesn't matter if you see it or not, in a way my writing it is a moment that could change my situation. I am struggling at the moment. I'm not sure how long I have been struggling as my life has always been ups and downs. But it certainly feels that the downs last longer, whilst the Ups are few. I dont know what I am doing with my life. Since i finished university the plans that I thought were mine in the making haven't come true. I have tried to make them happen to the best of my ability, but often looking back if an opportunity did come along I was in one of the dips and didnt make the most of it. Now i am temping in an office job that has nothing to do with me. Its a job. I earn money by doing meaningless tasks. Then come home to my little apartment to kill the hours before I go to bed and then start again. My friends are becoming less and less, which isnt a surprise as most of them think i will say no if they ask me to do anything. Which basically is true. I dont have the energy to be happy. There I think I said it...i dont think I have the energy to be happy, its too tiring and at the least seems fake to me. I see people walking around in couples, laughing and drinking in bars and it all seems so natural and effortless.  You my man have your shit together. I can tell that. The way you talk and deliver the content to us is always on point and focused. You are in the game, and I wish i could be more like you. In fact I wish i could be more like anyone except me as I dont have a fucking clue how to be me anymore. I am lost, floating out to sea and not sure of anything. Im the king of double guessing so dont actually do anything at all. Im not sure what I am expecting to get from this email, and I hoped that it would make me feel better in a cathartic way. I guess I have failed as I just seem more like a depressed loser. Stay the course David as we need you in the world. You dont know how your positivity makes a difference to people like me.

So this week we received several questions highlighted below that our host David Ralph answers in his own style. So lets start with the first question that talks about the connection with burnout and an anti-hustle stance. As the listener asked isn't a contradiction when you leap from talking about dealing with burnout and then working harder than anyone else.  Listener Question One Dear David, i have been listening to your show for the last couple of years and have heard you talk often about burnout and overwhelm. I have also heard you talk a lot about not hustling and taking things easy. Isn't this a contradiction? Isn't success simply about working harder than anyone else until you dont have to? I would love to know your answer to this question. AR, South Africa Listener Question Two Hi David, what is the hardest part in your view to getting an online business going? JM, Iowa Listener Question Three Hi David and the team, when you are not running the show and doing your coaching what do you also do?

That is one of the problems that entrepreneurs experience everyday when they are trying to build their dream businesses. It is especially difficult for business coaches who are actually building their businesses, by helping others build theirs due to the multiple variables that can trip us up. They may get knockbacks due to lack of effort, They may get stumbles due to not following the processes. So what can you do when things dont go your way in life? How can we keep on moving on when things get tough? Well in todays episode of Join Up Dots we focus in on just that, by sharing what has been going on behind the scenes on Join Up Dots.

More importantly, I have a great team that makes magic happen.  I've got a bit of a loudmouth (in a good way!), and I'm always bouncing new ideas around. I am someone who likes to challenge the 'norm' (I call this idea undefault). If I could afford it I would buy Liverpool Football Club for no sensible reason: I'm just a fan. My kids would prefer me to buy an Aston Martin, and my wife would prefer me to spend the money on the house (or donate it). Being a family man I exercise the skills of negotiation and compromise: I buy gadgets. He is here to to share his journey and experience as a real-world eCommerce entrepreneur, and reveal how he turned the chaotic first month of his business into a successful brand. So how do you battle against companies like Amazon, who are getting bigger and bigger when starting our with a e-commerce business? And when the failures hit, what made him come back for more and give it another go instead of dropping into business despair? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Matt Edmundson

    Jaryd Krause is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired podcast. He is the owner of the online business - Buying Online Businesses.com Like most people, or at least the ones that i meet everyday, he had a desire to start his own online business, walk around in his underpants at 4:00pm in the afternoon, and quite frankly reap ever easier rewards. But the story to where he is today is quite a bit different to that vision. As he says "my sheer desire to earn a decent and regular (passive) income from a minimal amount of personal input paved the path to this point of where I am at now. This desire was all necessary so that I could simply fulfil my aspiration to travel and explore the world without repeatedly needing to return home every so often to hustle my heart out to earn more money in order to take off overseas again, and again. However he wasn't moving towards that vision very easily. In fact although he was hustling, He just wasn't hustling in the right direction. So how could he get past the slog phase of creating online income? How could he skip past the failure point of many start-up businesses that fail after the first twelve months? This was this very question that led him to the BIG Ah-Ha moment, to the point of realization that I was searching so hard for.

    Introducing Finding Meaning In Life  Finding meaning in life isn't easy for sure. We all think that life should be better, or more defined, or more profitable. We all think that we should be getting the kind of results that we see others getting online. However one of the things that we dont truly reflect on is what these wishes mean to us. Why do we want a million pound sitting in the bank? Why do we want a better more loving relationship that make our hearts explode everyday? We want these things for the meaning that they give us. And by finding meaning in life we can look at what is most important to us and focus in on those things making us ultimately happier, more fulfilled and centred, Finding Meaning In Life The Start T he first thing that we4 need to do when we start on the path of finding meaning in life is accept that what we are getting is down to us. We have to draw a line under our previous section of life, and say "Yeah, everything that i am experiencing is because of me" This is hard to do, and for most people they will throw up a serious of excuses as to why they are the victims of their lives. No, i am only getting this bad thing because of how that person is treating me! I am only living here, because of being thrown out of home by my wicked mother. We will say to you that is rubbish, and all those situations are created by millions of small things that you can and should have dealt with when they occurred.  Your Mother didn't just decide one day to kick you out, but this has been building up over a period of time whilst living with each other. Get my point? Its at this stage when you have to say "If i want to start fining meaning in life, i have to take control of my life" And that is accepting the bad decisions as much as the good ones that you have made.

    Dr Don Wood is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast Our Guest today He developed the Inspired Performance Institute after spending years researching how trauma affects our minds and our lives. He began to understand that events and experiences throughout our lifetime continue to play a role in how we experience life in the present. He also realized that there was a better way of treating the issue. As he says “Teaching people to live with, manage and cope with the daily stress doesn't fix the problem. The solution comes from understanding it's source and providing a long-term permanent solution. How The Dots Joined Up For Dr Wood Unresolved trauma or disturbing events and experiences from your past may be interfering with your ability to function at your highest level. These experiences may limit your ability to regulate your mood, focus, or connect with others in a healthy, loving and safe way… A chronically dysregulated and imbalanced nervous system can lead to anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, addictions, or even chronic illnesses such as auto-immune disorders, thyroid problems, cardiac and gastrointestinal diseases, and even cancer. So was this concept based on his own personal experiences as many successful businesses are? And how do we tap into our own pasts without the help of an expert guru, or perhaps we shouldn't?
