At the age of 32, John realized he was no longer happy in his job as a consultant in business. He looked at the people around him and knew, "These people may be happy, but I want to live a different life than them in 10 years!"
Because he had no idea how he wanted to live his life instead, he packed his bags without further ado, quit his job and traveled the world for a year with his backpack. A high risk, for which many declared him crazy. But it was the best decision of his life.
The experiences he gathered with a wide variety of people, animals and cultures changed him. During this journey he learned to trust his inner voice. Thus, after his return, out of an impulse, he wrote in only 21 days the book "The Café at the Edge of the World"
Within a year, it had spread across the globe through readers' word of mouth - inspiring people on every continent, including Antarctica. It also took first place on the Best Seller List
and was used in over 40 languages
With "The Big Five for Life"
he wrote another bestseller just a few years later, encouraging millions of people to shape their lives according to their dreams. Now he also wants to pass on these insights in the form of his training program.
Because of his work, John became one of the most famous personalities in the world, alongside such figures as Oprah Winfrey, Tony Robbins
and Deepak Chopra
as one of the 100 most inspiring people
in the area of leadership and personal development excellent.
All this still touches and amazes him.
