It’s with great delight that we bring onto the show today a man who had a similar background to myself.
He began his career in the City Of London as a broker, and after a period of time knew that his time had come, to go after what lights him up inside.
In fact it was a lot worse than that, as he actually became chronically depressed and knew that he had to do something about the way his life was going.
And wow didn’t he do just that, as now he is a global adventurer, motivational speaker & philanthropist.
He gave up this image of corporate success for a life on the road, which came about after being inspired by the movie The Motorcycle Diaries.
The days of living and working behind his ‘slab of wood’ were well and truly over.
His new passion: Finding ways for your inner rebel (that voice that tells you, you are worth so much more than you think) to come out and play.
As he says “The inner rebel tells you that your life is yours. And anything you dream of is possible. Anything. And that the fuel for all this delicious potential is simple: Kindness and harnessing the power of human connection. And. Doing it all with a smile on your face and a spring in your step!”
So how did he take that first step when so many people would have thought that he had cracked it already?
And does he look back at his past life, and know that this was just one of his dots that he had to go through to get to where he is today?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the inspirational Leon Logothetis.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:
How all his friends and family thought he was crazy just to throw it all up in the air and go after his dream, but he just knew that he had to do it.
How the first journey that he took was travelling across America on just $5.00 dollars a day travelling from New York to Hollywood, connecting with the world.
How he was taught by a homeless guy in Pittsburg that wealth isn’t in your wallet, but what is truly in your heart.
How he nearly died whist driving a car across Romania, and could hear the words of Churchill “Never Give Up, Never Give Up, Never Give Up”
How he likes nothing more than jumping into a swimming pool, naked (and sometimes with a load of other people too….don’t tell your Mum!)
