For this year I am aiming to have as many meaningful conversations with people I don‘t know yet, as I possible can.
After all, deep connections with real people is what makes us human, right? Way too many of us were lacking real conversations during this pandemic year.
The first guest I never met and interviewed was Bas Lebesque.
Bas became a big fan of minimalism and got rid of 75% of his stuff, 2 yrs ago. He would like to take it one level up and get rid of 50% of the 25% that is left. That is a current challenge and maybe a good occasion to play the minimalism game, isn‘t it?
Bas says about himself the following:
After a short career in hospitality and then 2 careers in financial markets, as a trader and as a freelance consultant. I had to take bold action to stop doing what I was not enjoying. Looking back, I realised that when I started my second career as a consultant in 2010 I also started my own physical and mental health journey.
It took me 3 years to break out of my golden cage, in which I was living as a successful financial trader. I am happy I did, as I live a much freer life now. Breaking out of that cage at the peak of the financial crisis, I thought I was going to lose my identity and I would end up living on the streets. What a limiting belief that was!
The journey to my best version will never end, but I am happier with myself than ever before. The work of Byron Katie, Dr Joe Dispenza and Wim Hof have become a part of my life.
Among his journey he has lived in 8 countries on 5 continents.
