Ep.209 ~ Learning How to Learn Better ~ Danny Flood
“Travel is really the ultimate education, it is the ultimate chance for reinvention.” Danny Flood
On the show today we are joined by another modern day Indiana Jones entrepreneur that has been traveling non-stop while growing his business for the past six years, Danny Flood. Danny is the founder of Open World Magazine, Open World Podcast and the author of six books. What I like about Danny is that he really takes traveling, adventure, productivity and entrepreneurship to another level. The last time I saw him was in Thailand taking hot air balloon flying lessons so he could fulfill his goal of flying a hot air balloon around the world!
Today, Danny shares about his journey as an adventrepreneur, some of the crazy travels he has been on, how he applies his adventurous mentality to being an entrepreneur and his new book. Danny also shares an interesting perspective on growth hacking, and some great tips on how he maximizes his personal development, free time and adventure in his life.
“I take on adventures because it provides a new perspective on life….I just feel like I’m face to face with the raw essence of life.” Danny Flood
