Todays guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Podcast interview is Mr Jasper Ribbers, a man who has learnt the secret of travelling the world, whilst being funded by something he already had.
If that sounds a bit cryptic all will be revealed in the show.
But its true to say that Jasper does not follow a normal path in life
Starting his adult working life after finishing his education in the Netherlands, he worked for an arbitrage trading firm for 6 years.
It was a normal kind of job that many of us have endured. Long hours, boring work, but hey at the end of the day it paid.
And isn’t that why most of us started going to work in the first place anyway.
But Jasper Ribbers knew that he wanted more.
So at the age of 32, he revaluated his life goals and came up with a question to ponder.
Did he want to slave away at a mildly stimulating profession so he could perch atop a pile of assets at the ripe age of 65?
And after asking himself that question he knew it was time to leap into the unknown.
So in March of 2010, with no backup plan or prospect of gainful employment, he quit his job to pursue his lifelong dream: ultimate freedom.
How exciting is that?
So how many of you listeners would be brave enough to do just that, and of course was our guest brave or simply frightened that life was slipping away?
Well lets find out, as bring onto the show to start joining up the dots of his life, the one and only, Jasper Ribbers
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects such as:
How you don’t have to have a fixed idea of what you want, you just need to know that you want something and work towards it!
How Jasper Ribbers took the leap of faith because he didn’t want to face the thought of living a life of regrets!
How when you don’t have a job filling your day, you can see opportunities that you would never have seen before!
How you don’t have to quit your job to push against the comfort zone, but you must push against it whenever you can to grow!
How it takes time and practice to build a vision, and that time is going to pass anyway so you might as well get started!
