If you’ve wanted to get unstuck, feel inspired, have faith or simply make a difference in the world, then do we have the show for you!
Today I’ll be talking with Conor Grennan, the #1 international New York Times best-selling author of Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal, and a genuine tried and true super-hero if you ask me.
Today we’ll be talking about his adventure from ordinary to extraordinary, a reluctant hero who helped and saved the lives of countless youth in Nepal, and has helped many illegally orphaned or even enslaved children of Nepal be reunited with their families.
I want to understand how he grew the strength and conviction to do what he did, where it came from, and how he went from near penny-less and jobless, to helping thousands along the way. And how he took himself into the mountains, just before snow-season on an epic adventure of Hollywood proportions…though I’m guessing he wouldn’t call it that at all.
So today we’ll look at faith, having strength, believing in what you’re doing, and putting one foot in front of the other, even if wobbly sticks are the only thing holding you up.
Plus Nepalese Toilets, coconut mattresses, and what in the world dive-bombing monkeys have to do with anything.
