His goal is to incorporate the wild adventure of a motorbike tour through Asia, as well as meeting and getting to know fellow entrepreneurs from many different walks of life and varying experiences and skills.

Key quotes:

  • Whatever you think you’re limited by, you’re not limited by those things. What you’re actually limited by is time, because you have no idea how long you’ve got left on this earth.
  • Make sure that what you’re doing with your life is worthwhile and it’s actually what you want to do. Stop waiting for the right moment, because it may never come.
  • Is what you’re doing leading yourself to where you want to be? If not, then get out of it.
  • As long as you’re still providing people with great value don’t be afraid to turn a profit.
  • Whatever needs to get done, just do it. No one is going to do the work for you unless you’re paying them.
  • Success to me has become much more about experiences and doing things that I enjoy on a daily basis.
