On this episode of The Investing for Freedom Podcast, Mike is joined by guest Rob Murgatryod. Mike and Rob discuss doing more or what you love and less of what you don’t. Mike and Rob speak about the impact someone simply showing us what is possible can have and we need to re-wire our brains to seek the freedom we desire instead of complying to the life other people have pre-fashioned for us. Mike and Rob also talk about nature, nurture and neighborhood and how Rob made the move to Italy to achieve his dream life.
