From Kitchen Table To Success
British Snack Co founder Thomas Lock is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast. As they say "Since our humble beginnings in 2013, our mission has been to create the tastiest snacks money can buy. Lovingly crafted, outrageously delicious and quintessentially quirky, our products can be found in supermarkets, pubs and independent shops across the world. Handcooked in the UK using exclusively British potatoes, our crisps combine no-nonsense flavours with classic crunch. Their first product, Awfully Posh Pork Crackling, was developed by founder Tom Lock in his mum’s kitchen. And then the company was founded to scale up production and launch the pork crackling to the UK market. Now this isn't just a profit making exercise, as they are made on a farm that not only grows its own potatoes, but is powered by renewable energy. So, these crisps don't just taste good - they do good, too. So we hear time and time again about people starting online businesses and selling online courses, but how do you actually develop tasty snacks? And when did he sit back and think "Ok, this is something, this is really something that we need to get out to the world. Its time to get serious?" Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Thomas Lock
Starting A Business On Passion And Other Questions Starting a business on passion is what everybody wants of course. Why wouldn't you want to wake up with a Yay......and an excitement in your stomach? Well quite frankly, that is the dream but more often or not along the way you can find that things become a little bit different. So in this episode of Join Up Dots we answer three questions from listeners of the show that all come to us looking for answers on passion. Question One David, you seem a man who is always very honest on the podcast. SO i would like to ask you a question re starting a business with a friend. My best friend from school (so 30 years and counting) wants to start a vaping business with me, delivering vaping equipment to social clubs and colleges. They have planned things out and it all looks very good, but i have two issues. 1: I dont think i really would ever start this myself, so i wonder about my passion long term. 2. I am worried that our friendship might suffer long term if i do it, and also if i dont do it. Any help will put this troubled mind at a rest. Georgey, UK Question Two Dear David, i have started several businesses over the last few years and never get past the slog part of everything before I lose the will to live and give up. Any advice from a sex bomb of a man who seems to have this part of things sewn up bigtime. John, Newton Le Willows, UK Question Three Hi David, do you really enjoy what you do? It sounds like you do, but it could also be an act. The reason i ask is I'm reading a book on the subject of finding what you love and it is quote clear that nobody truly finds what they love. Am i aming too high? Kitty Ketinbanban

My Business Is A Money Making Mess
My Business Is Earning Money But A Mess & Other Questions Through the many years of Join Up Dots, we have inspired people from across the world to take control of their lives, start building their own income and have a kickass life. But of course, its not as easy as simply saying that you want to do it and it just happens. You need to of course start, but you also (and this is the hardest part of it all) need to truly believe that you can make things happen. That is where the difficulties start and the voices in your head start to take control of the situation and things go off the rails. Well in todays podcast episode we answer just three of the many questions that come into the show on a daily basis asking for help. These ones however are a bit different, as they aren't just people struggling to make a difference in their lives. Two of the questions are from people who have got things in a good position and now need a little bit of assistance to take it to the next level. Lets start with question one, and of course you need to listen to the show to hear the full, expansive answers.
Building The New Silicon Valley Dream
Rusty Gaillard is todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast. As a transformational coach & motivational speaker of Silicon Valley Dream builders todays guest helps men and women experience more freedom in their lives. He left a 13+ year career at Apple in 2019 to focus full-time on helping others transform their life to one they love. His passion for this work comes from his personal experience of transformation, including life changes he chose, and those he didn't. Starting with a voluntary demotion in 2010 to spend more time with his young son, a multi-year divorce, and launching a new career in 2018, he learned that how we react to life’s events matters more than the event itself.
Hood topics and great interviews
I like David’s no nonsense style of interviewing. The topics are good and varied and he gets the best out the guests. If you’re in business I’d highly recommend this podcast.

This was a great discovery - as someone who interviews leaders a lot for my day job I thought the content was awesome, interviews were engaging and the host knows his stuff!
