      Hi friends, πŸ‘‹

      This week’s issue is a bit different than usual.

      Recently, I had the pleasure of being a guest on The Nomad Solopreneur Show hosted by Gabe Marusca.

      We explored how my journey of being burnt out led to selling up my business, travelling 23 countries, completing an MBA and finding a new passion and purpose.

      I have previously talked about Ikigai and the process of finding purpose in this issue.

      This week goes deeper into why I do what I do.

      Today, the best way to digest the episode is through your favourite listening platform. You can access them here:

      Here’s the outline of what we covered:

      “Welcome to The Nomad Solopreneur Show!

      I’m your host, Gabe Marusca, joining you on your solopreneurship journey as you build, grow, and learn.

      Today we have with us Vaughan Broderick, who sold his business, backpacked 23 countries, got an MBA, and then launched into the world of design thinking and innovation.

      He aims to inspire people like you to think differently about life and business.

      Vaughan shared today with us the DUCTRI design thinking model created by Dr. Christian Walsh.

      A model that considers the resources and implementation phases critical to innovation.”
