Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast is Mr Ian Usher, a man who is an example of someone who took massive action and then kept adding to the momentum created by that one act, to quite literally change their life forever.

A few years back in 2008, he made headlines across the world when he auctioned his entire life – car, home, job and friends – on eBay after his marriage collapsed six years after leaving the United Kingdom and setting up home in Australia.

He earnt £192,000 and instead of settling back into domestic life with the sudden windfall, he instead decided to set off on a path which must have been unthought of even a few months earlier.

He took the proceeds and made a fresh start, travelling the world armed with nothing but a list of life-goals.

Over 100 weeks he tackled 100 goals, which included meeting Sir Richard Branson,  running with bulls, cage diving with great white sharks, and even joining the Mile High Club.

And now after owning and living on his own island off the coast of Panama, and becoming a speaker, writer, adventurer and traveller Ian Usher’s life seems a world away from his childhood in the North of England.

But is it?

Did he always have this adventurous spirit as a child?

And was his life just waiting for the right moment to find his unique and authentic calling?

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Mr Ian Usher.

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed with Ian Usher, such weighty topics such as:

How his love of adventure was fuelled by his Dad, who even went skydiving with him at the age of 16!

How he rarely had a real job, with the longest lasting only 3 years!

How tacking the wall of death was one of the greatest challenges that he overcame on his life list!

How diving with Great White Sharks off the coast of South Africa was an experience which was less than inspiring to say the least!

And lastly……….

How he wants Ewan McGregor to play him in the story of his life, and not Tom Hanks (even though Mr Hanks is a fine actor)
