139. An Authentic, Happy Person Grows a “New Business Mindset”
Gareth Young is an author, radio show host, podcaster, blogger and speaker. His passion is challenging preconceptions and helping people transform and grow into authenticity, happiness, purpose and sense of fulfillment without sacrificing worldly and career success—topics often featured on his podcast, A New Business Mindset. He is also a successful businessman.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Gifted in mathematics, Gareth became an accountant in the U.K. Early in his career, drawn to business and the corporate world, he joined an 18-month exchange program in the U.S. It became a permanent extension as he met a woman, fell in love, married and started a family and a life in America.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Immersed in a high pressure corporate job, he was seldom at home. Dashing out to work, his two-year-old son grabbed his leg, calling, “Daddy! Daddy!” As Gareth recalls it, “I shook him off, like a dog. I realized, oh my goodness, I’m missing my life here! That was a real turning point.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“When I transformed my own life from a traditional corporate career and family life to an integrated life of independent business livelihood, I gained richer personal relationships and deeper community involvement, all filled with a sense of meaning and purpose. Perhaps most importantly I have learned a new way of being with people.”
