Hello everyone, today we’re going to talk about finding your self-worth and living your life to its fullest with Roger Williams who is a writer, podcaster, adventurer, and Head Crosser Offer of his bucket list.
After more than 30 years working in the youth development and teaching field, a year in quarantine, and two heart attacks, Roger embarked on an adult gap year to prioritize a life in which he is known not by his professional work, but by the way he lives his life and the people he grows relationships with.
Now, he is traveling around the world to cross items off his bucket list and inspiring others to do the same.
In the episode, we discuss about Roger’s lifestyle, and how he’s living nowadays and managing to cross off things on his bucket list while being connected to his family and loved ones.
We explore a lot of important and interesting topics like the weirdest thing on his bucket list and the weirdest thing Roger ate while he was in Spain.
We also discussed about his motivation and reason behind choosing this lifestyle and what caused this huge shift in his life and thoughts on American work-life balance in general.
