17 Jan PODCAST: Serial Entrepreneur Succeeds with Adventure Sabbaticals
Dave Williams has been a serial entrepreneur and CEO for over 20 years.
He launched, led, and exited two successful startups, 360i and BLiNQ Media. He still serves as an angel investor, advisor, and mentor. He credits his entrepreneurial success to periods of deep reflection and taking time off through extended travel sabbaticals. And now he’s incorporating his many amazing travel experiences to launch his latest startup NomadX.
We covered so much in this conversation and it’s relevant to so many audiences.
- If you have a job, you’d gain value in his perspective in the power of mini sabbaticals & how incorporating more immersive experiences and adventure travel in your time off can provide you tremendous value, returning to work much more refreshed and creative.
- If you are a digital nomad or strive to be a remote worker, you’ll want to listen how Dave is taking the learnings from his travel experiences and his business success, to launch a new offering. It’s a new travel network and marketplace for affordable/sustainable housing solutions for nomads specifically, plus creating a community and match-ups for like-minded professionals.
- And if you know Dave from the digital marketing space, or you don’t, it’s great to hear about his career, his success, and the path that ultimately led him to a more travel-focused work and purpose.
