419: Devin Thorpe: Being Social And Good Everyday
Devin Thorpe is a man who has a path similar to so many people in the world and certainly many of the guests of Join Up Dots.
He was on a path, that had been created out of study, education and hard work, leading him to perform as he says “The best job he’d ever had—as the Chief Financial Officer of the multinational food and beverage company MonaVie” until they let him go.
And upon those words “Sorry we don’t require your services anymore” his life it seems became what truly it should have been at the beginning.
He and his wife ended up living in China for a year where he wrote “Your Mark On The World” and embarked on the career he’d always wanted yet hadn’t dared dream.
And that is what truly fascinates me.
Why does a man work tirelessly in his education, and his employment, but not allow this effort to take him to the land of his dreams.
The places where his heart, brain, enthusiasms, all come together and he wakes up excited every morning.
And now he is an author, advisor and Forbes contributor, and is a devoted full time to championing social good, writing about, advocating for and advising those who do good.
He travels extensively, sharing inspiring messages as a keynote speaker, and trainer.
So have the dots joined up naturally for him, or does he feel that he is now just starting the journey that is truly his?
And what would he say to his younger self if he could go back in time, do what he did, or change direction even earlier.
Well we are going to find out later, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Devin Thorpe
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Devin Thorpe such as:
How he never felt the true passion flow through whilst working in a corporate land going for the big money.
How he would never have been brave enough to take the leap of faith, he simply had to be pushed to go for the dream.
Why he is so focused on solving big problems in the world, to empower others to want to tackle their own.
Why he feels that the world doesn’t need more belivers, but we certainly need a lot more doers.
