Have you ever wondered how a deep passion for what you do can transform the mundane grind into a thrilling journey to success? 


Join us for a fascinating conversation with Rob Dix, property investment expert, Sunday Times bestselling author, and co-host of the "Property Podcast", as we explore the intersection of passion, curiosity and the unexpected twists and turns of a career built on genuine interest. Rob's story is a testament to the idea that loving what you do is the cornerstone of success, as he shares from his journey to becoming an influential figure in the property world.


Reflecting on the importance of experimentation and the impact of serendipity, we discuss how curiosity can lead to an amazing career progression. The journey isn't just about the destination, it's about the discoveries made along the way.


We examine the nature of success and debunk the myth that there are shortcuts to real achievement. I reflect on my own journey, emphasising the need to get started, the dedication required to persevere and the patience needed to reap the rewards. 


We explore the subtleties of visibility before mastery and the importance of setting personal milestones rather than comparing ourselves to others. This conversation reminds us to enjoy the journey, because it's not just the destination that counts, but the experiences we have along the way.


We also discuss the dichotomy between traditional and self-publishing, the creative process, the challenges of getting your projects over the proverbial finishing line, and we reflect on consciously navigating life's myriad choices, mindful of the impact our decisions have on ourselves and those around us.
