Todays guest is a man who is an example of someone who took massive action and then kept adding to the momemtum 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 his 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 lets find out, as we bring onto the show, to start joining up dots, the one and only Mr Ian Usher.
