“The areas of life that we tend to want to impact the most are the ones we are the least willing to talk about.”

We are consistently affected by the relationships we have and the people we surround ourselves with. But this can be taken to another level, where you can truly curate the people around you. Jon Levy does just that.

The creator of the Influencers Dinner decided to surround himself with the cream of the crop, people at the top of their industries, thought leaders, movers and shakers from every field. How? By inviting them to what is now one of the most exclusive dinners in the world.

In this episode, Jon talks about how important a sense of wonder is, and the value of removing yourself from your comfort zone. Get inspired to meet new people and create your own adventure with this week’s episode. Thanks for listening.

“We’re in an era now where the strange and unique is accepted and interesting”
