[TSE 107] How to Get Paid by Choosing Your Own Adventures with Dave Cornthwaite

Posted on / by Natalie Sisson / in Podcast / 2 comments

107 - Dave QuoteI have met a lot of people who are following their dreams, living a life they love and building a sustainable business around, but none more so than Dave Cornthwaite.

In every sense of the word, Dave is a nomad. He rarely stays in one spot longer than a week or two before he’s onto the next destination. As a career expeditionist, he is constantly seeking out new adventures and challenging himself both mentally and physically.

You’re probably wondering how one comes to travel the globe as a way of life. Well, it all started when he was in his early 20’s slugging away at a hapless job as a web designer. After realizing that his cat was going to have a more enjoyable day than himself, he decided life just wasn’t worth living if you weren’t enjoy it.

So what did he do? Quit his job and head out to break a world record – as you do when you loathe your job!
