132: Ben Nemtin – 6 Steps to Conquer Anything On Your Bucket List
We all have these things we want to do, and they’re all intangible until you speak them or write them down.
Today I’m talking to Ben Nemtin, one of the founders of The Buried Life. When he was younger Ben struggled with serious depression and today he’s talking about how he got through it. From there he decided to make a life pursuing the dreams he always wanted to achieve like traveling the world and playing basketball with President Obama. It begs the question: why aren’t you living your life to the fullest right now?
Ben has some great tips about living the life you want, plus he talks about giving back and being creative in all aspects of your life. He is a super inspiring guy who has really created some amazing moments for himself.
