I met Kate and Paul in Vietnam a while ago. They both quit their jobs in London beginning of this year and decided to do something incredible. They sold everything they owned and went to see the world. Not only this, they also decided to build 12 startups in 12 months along the way..
A few days ago I had Colin Wright on the show. Colin is an Author, Entrepreneur and Full Time Traveler. For the past 6 years he has traveled the world and written more than 30 books. He just turned 30 this year. Colin and I have a very special connection. He just didn't know it until I told him on the show..
PJ Entrepreneur is a true self made man. And if there's anyone on this planet who deserves the name Entrepreneur, it's probably him. He's also known as Paul Jones. And yes, his family name is Entrepreneur. He legally changed it a few years ago. And it only cost him $200. Paul has been involved in starting, funding, building and selling over 150 companies, so far.
David Passiak is all about bridging the gap between the old and the new. Through his entire life he has been trying to connect tradition, religion, spirituality, wisdom on the one hand and innovation, disruption and the constant change of societies and our environment on the other hand. David has written two books on this topic called Red Bull to Buddha and Disruption Revolution.
I love listening to Mike Edelhart's stories. I had to smile many times when I re-listened to this episode before I put it online. This episode is full of wisdom. It's probably the most important episode yet, if you want to understand early stage investing. And as a matter of fact, how to live an incredibly remarkable life, like Mike did it.
Mike Thomas has been working in the TV, Movie and Video production business for over 30 years. He worked with Presidents, Larry King and directed the BBC coverage of the 1st Gulf War. And he's been writing a blog, called TheDailyBoss for the past five years, six times a week.
Manoj grew up in India, was hired on the phone and started his career in the US in the 90s. Manoj and I have a very special connection. We never met, he shares most of my blog posts and we wrote back and forth a few times. I felt that my podcast is a great opportunity to finally connect with Manoj and figure out what he's doing.
I learned a very important lesson in this episode. I learned that no matter what you've already achieved in your life, no matter how busy you are and how many other more important things you think you might have to do, the most important thing is to never stand still. To keep on learning. To keep working on yourself. To keep getting better. No matter what..
I had a great talk with Hodan Ibrahim the other day. Hodan grew up as child of Somali immigrants in a social housing project in Canada. After having started several businesses, she's currently working on fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in underprivileged immigrant communities.
A few days ago I had a very interesting talk with Bud Hennekes, blogger and podcaster at A Boundless World.
"It's not about being perfect. It's about being yourself."
I call interesting people from all over the world, hit the record button, we talk about their stories and I put it online.
Simple, raw & uncut..
