John Loves Working With People
What John has enjoyed most throughout his career is working with people. He is committed to everyone living with Love, Belonging, Spirituality, Balance, Rhythm and Harmony. He believes the access to these qualities is through inquiring into, “What are our lives to be used for, what is our purpose and what are we meant to do?” This is not just about careers, but also about having art, music and the experience of just being interested in all of life! He is inspired by a line from the movie, The Rookie:
“You may not want to hear this, but it is okay to think about what you want to do, until it is time to starting doing what you were meant to do.” ~ The Rookie ~
John has found that what he is meant to do is contribute to the growth and development of others. He is writing his first book with the intention to create the space inside of which others can articulate what they want and take the actions needed to achieve the life of their choosing.
