We kick this year off with a very inspiring conversation with Ben Kubassek, best-selling author, and CEO of multiple companies.
Ben achieved all of the financial goals he set for himself at the age of 27, and then had a burnout, which led to discovering his life task, message and passion.
Ben, who is 56 years now, believes the missionaries of the future will be young entrepreneurs who have specific life tasks.
Ben is the CEO of a lot of companies some of which are in the arenas of home building/land development, construction, retails and speaking/training. Most of these he started after leaving his granddad’s commune at the age of 21.
Ben is the best-selling author of Succeed Without Burnout and 5 ‘F’ Words that Will Energize Your Life.
