#7 – Tiago Buhr: Business and entrepreneurship as the ultimate spritual practice [EN]
This following episode is a very special one. This is where I talk to Tiago Buhr, my business coach and mentor from Florianopolis, Brasil.
By age 17, Tiago had founded his first company with the use of Twitter, growing from zero to 700,000 followers in two years. At the age of 19, he sold it and began traveling the world. After five and a half months of backpacking, he moved back to his home country Brazil and after a few business attempts, got clear on his values and started a coaching practice.
This is a great, deep talk about money, spirituality, deep inner work, success and failing lots of times.
