Like many of us he was searching for that elusive paradigm. The combination of purpose, fun, family, friends, challenge, health, travel, giving back, happiness as well as the ability to balance wild ambitions with the equally as important pleasures and contentment of simple things. He is getting closer. This book is part of that process.
Although he respected their success in the business world, for most of his life he had heard stories of well-intentioned entrepreneurs who sacrificed everything for the success of their business. They were at the office all day, missed family and friends, and had little time nor energy to experience other things they loved, resulting in being burnt out, unhappy and often with regrets. He is quite sure this is not how many of them wanted to live and is certain this is not what he wanted for his own life. While near the beginning of his journey he made a conscious choice to seek another route.
Together with Martin Bjergegaard they discovered a new movement unfolding right now. They spoke with thought leaders from around the world who had learned to achieve profound impact and success in their chosen fields while living happy lives and enjoying the ride. Business leaders who have seen the light a little earlier than the rest of us and were generous enough to share their secrets to help others join them. This book is the result.
He is very excited to have a profile on Amazon and will be equally as thrilled if anyone is still reading this far down on his bio.
