Finding your Why and taking the leap of faith across cultures w/ Yannis Dimitroulas

Finding your Why and taking the leap of faith across cultures w/ Yannis Dimitroulas

In this episode, we have someone very interesting and varied in his experience.

Yannis Dimitroulas is an expert in marketing currently leading a content marketing team based in the Netherlands. He’s done quite a number of marketing consultant work, been part of a team to sell chocolate all around the world, and most of all he is a good friend. We’ve known each other since 2007, and I know from seeing his journey until now that there’s going to be some amazing wisdom from him.

We talked about:

  • Vulnerability and what we can learn from it
  • Finding your why and its importance
  • Being a cross-cultural kid and living among cultures
  • We talked about the observations we have of the world, from philosophy to business models and more

Yannis is the marketer, the riser, and a brother in the pursuit of wisdom. He is the AntiFool.

Enjoy!
