John Schnettgoecke

Ever wish you could run away to the beach, write your book and just not worry about anything for a while?

Well, so did my friend John.

John Schnettgoecke experienced a quarter life crisis and did what any millennial would do…he quit his job and journeyed to Central America to write and reflect. However through a series of unfortunate events, he found himself on a plane back to the states, but with unique insights that were waiting to be shared.

This led to his book launching today Pura Vida, A Thinkers Guide To Living, 15 Must Answer Questions on Happiness, Habits and Hustle for Mixed Up Millennials. Throughout the podcast we talk about what a “mixed up millennial” is, the importance of pen and paper, and how asking yourself some specific questions can unearth who you really are.
