Welcome to the Uncomfortable is OK podcast I’m your host Chris Desmond. Happy 2017 guys, I hope that it’s started awesomely for you all! I’m kicking it in Japan at the moment.
This is the first podcast of the year, episode number 36 and I’m chatting with Dave Woolfe. Dave and I were at high school in Hawkes Bay together and now he runs a business called Everyone’s Adventure. This isn’t your typical business model. Everyone’s Adventure has set a financial target to meet for the summer and once they have hit that, outdoor adventure equipment rental is free. This reduces the barriers for those people who struggle to have these experiences otherwise.
Dave’s goal is do business in a better way while doing cool things with cool toys.
Today’s conversation we chat through a few different things. How Dave has developed a growing awareness of how he operates, taking some time to develop perspective, the challenge of leaving something certain for something uncertain, the importance of keeping you message simple, and how our egos and identities are intertwined with what we do.
Thanks for starting off 2017 getting uncomfortable with me and Dave today.
