EPoP 051: The Incredible Quest with Akshay Nanavati
The other side of fear leads us to the most exciting and memorable moments in our lives.
After hearing Akshay Nanavati speak onstage at the World Domination Summit 2014 for just a couple of minutes, I knew I had to find a way to get him on the podcast.
Luckily enough I ran into him shortly afterwards in the mens restroom, and despite the unorthodox location of the request, he agreed to come on as a guest.
This week Akshay joins us to continue our theme of adventure in travel by sharing his awesome lifelong quest.
It’s one of the most amazing ones I’ve ever heard in my life, and so crazy that you’ll just have to listen to find out what it is!
We discuss how fear affects our travels, the logistics of his great adventure, the parts that seem the most exciting, and of course those that are the scariest.
We also talk about how Akshay deals with people who hate on his quest and the benefits of traveling with local companies and how it can save you a ton of money!
