Jon and I discussed the following in this episode

  • How some people are struggling with purpose and meaning and why finding the right tribe of people makes a massive difference in blending purpose and profit.

  • Why Jon knows that feeling very well having been in that position himself and how having the freedom to say “what’s next”? is very powerful.

  • The generational step change in joining up with others and communicating to make a living in a different, more creative way.

  • Jon’s belief that the most terrifying thing is to live life without purpose.

  • The tendency of people to check out of life and think they will live forever, and why the Front Row Foundation is so powerful in this respect.
