After years of being a college professor, Michelle Jones had an epiphany. What if the current educational system WASN’T the best way for students to learn?
And what if she could start her own college?
A crazy thought – but one that eventually lead to her doing just that and becoming one of the very few people in this world who have started their own college from scratch!
In today’s episode, Michelle talks about the journey of creating her own college, who the Wayfinding Academy is a good fit for, why it’s not just inside the classroom where students learn at Wayfinding, and her biggest travel mishap, which happened on the very first night of the very first Wayfinding trip!
Mike Brcic, the founder of Sacred Rides, never imagined he’d have the world’s #1 mountain bike tour company in the world.
All he really wanted to do was get paid to take people on awesome trails around British Columbia.
That was 21 years ago, and since, he’s not only grown his business to great heights, but he’s also been able to take people mountain biking all over the world (yes, including Greenland)!
Mike talks about how they pick destinations, where they find the guides, and what a trip entails and also discusses why anyone, even someone who has never ridden a mountain bike before, can go on a trip…and why they should.
Plus, Mike discusses the charity he has set up and of course, tells us his biggest travel mishap (which happened very far from Greenland!)
When I first met Scott Brills four years ago his business card listed him as a “Man of Leisure”.
Since then I still haven’t quite figured out what it is that Scott ACTUALLY does, other than it’s quite a bit of everything.
Scott joins me today to finally shed some light on what it is he actually does as the co-owner of a Safari company, Japanese Tour operator, and web designer (plus a bunch of other random things).
He regales us with stories from Japan, Tanzania, Mongolia, and the Shoe-barus. It’s quite the journey!
Join us today to learn more about starting a business abroad, how to go about running a marathon with no training, and to hear some great travel tips for Japan! We’re almost as varied as Scott’s professional life!
