    Going on Pause - Dan Barker

    Going on Pause - Dan Barker

    This is going to be a fairly quick one because I've decided to put the podcast on pause for the time being. Press play to find out why.
    On that note, let me give you some great news about the new “Thriving Three Counties Mastermind Community” that we've launched this year.
    What is it all about? Thanks for asking!­
    Well in short, we're a group of generous entrepreneurs based in the three counties committed to helping each other learn, grow and develop so we can all live rich, happy and fulfilled lives.
    So what makes it different to your typical networking group?
    It’s not about trying to meet people and get business. It’s more than that. Together this exclusive group will support each other and help each other to learn and grow. The mastermind format is something that I’ve been a part of for many, many years and I think this one has got huge potential to become ‘the group’ in the three counties that everyone wants to be a part of in the future.
    We are currently taking on founding members, so if you'd like to be part of it, then please do get in touch – see link below, or email me at danbarkerstudios.com and we'll get information across to you soon. - Dan

    Rather Inventive Marketing Interview - Ben Kinnaird

    Rather Inventive Marketing Interview - Ben Kinnaird

    This week we're going to turn the tables. I was very lucky to be invited onto a podcast with Ben Kinnaird, who runs a company called Rather Inventive Marketing. It's quite cool what he does. He essentially runs a sort of private podcast, which he puts out to his club members, and his club members are his clients.
    We had a lot of fun, and covered a lot of subjects from my background to what we do now.
    Hope you enjoy!

    Goal Setting - Dan Barker

    Goal Setting - Dan Barker

    81 - Goal Setting
    It's that time of year when we think about what’s important to us and what we want to achieve. Most of us try to set goals, but are we achieving them? Drawing from personal experience and that of mentors, Dan believes there are ways to accomplish goals which are more effective than others.
    As we launch into the new year, it’s good to assess what works and what doesn’t, in order to help us focus on what we should be doing with fresh clarity. In this episode, of Thriving Three Counties, Dan touches on some advice from Gary Keller’s book ‘The One Thing’. Dan also leaves us with some practical advice that has worked for him, to help achieve our goals.
    We hope this has been helpful. We are all on this journey together and it would be good to hear from you. What are your goals and how are they going?

    Spotting Opportunities To Make A Difference - Jon Johnson

    Spotting Opportunities To Make A Difference - Jon Johnson

    If you've heard the story of me finding my niche in photography a number of years ago, you'll have heard about today's guest, Jon Johnson already. While battling myself, trying to make the photography business work so I could leave my day job, I decided to ask on LinkedIn what struggles people had had when working with commercial photographers.
    Jon generously answered and even agreed to chat on the phone to talk me through his experiences. His response that day led me to pursuing a niche in photography and now video, which had a dramatic impact on my business and ability to succeed.
    Now, 4 or 5 years later, we've become good friends and having heard his story, I understand that this generous act of giving his time to me that day is something that comes naturally and is repeated often.
    Jon is an entrepreneur at heart, having set up his first business aged 16.
    Brought up on a family farm he forged his path in agricultural consultancy and agronomy. His passion for the development of people led to the successful Education Training Centre for young people developed in 2009, which came about due to another one of his generous acts - this time trying to understand and help a young person who was causing trouble on the street outside his house.
    Jon has also undertaken property development projects and engaged in politics at local and national levels whilst developing a consultancy business working with a wide range of sectors.
    In 2015 Jon founded his current business Mountain Perspective, blending business support and the outdoor environment. Today Mountain Perspective fulfils a range of commercial contracts. He also works with several charities and social enterprises, and is an Enterprise Advisor for Hereford and Ludlow and North Shropshire College, and an Advisor for Young Enterprise.
    Jon holds a BSc in Business Management, Teacher training qualification, and is currently studying for his master’s in psychology.
