611: Ben Feder quit to truly begin

Talking about...quitting. Quitting In order to really get started. We go on a journey with a guy who did just that. Ben Feder climbed the corporate ladder to a big career, big income and in many ways, big success. But it had a cost...his family, relationships, health...the normal stuff we reference a lot but few people do anything about it. Ben  was CEO of Take Two interactive, the publisher of the smash video game hits Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto, and NBA 2K. At the top of his career. And...he walked away. Took his four kids out of school and moved his family to Bali for a year. He found himself, his family and a message he’s now sharing with the world in his new book,  Take Off Your Shoes: One Man's Journey from the Boardroom to Bali and Back. But it’s interesting. Today he is President of International Partnerships for the U.S. at Tencent Games, a massive chinese conglomerate that publishes video games. You’d think he would have come back and started a farm or something, but he went back to what he knows...big corporate business. But he went back...differently. Which you’ll hear in the show. The big takeaway is the power of living deliberately. And we cover the issue of...not everyone can up and move to another country and not work for a year. But you can take a “sabbatical of the mind” and much more. You can see more from Ben at https://benfederauthor.com/ Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
