Could you imagine starting and building twenty successful companies before the age of thirty-four? On top of that, being a board member in over ten companies spread throughout Asia, Europe and America and perhaps the youngest bank board member in Europe at 30 graduating from MIT with a MBA at 23, releasing a Danish bestseller that gets named top 7 book globally by the Danish equivalent of Financial Times, re-releasing the book around the world with Wiley, and being involved in a leading financial management platform for banking and insurance that has more than eighty million annual users and a value of hundreds of millions? Today’s guest is that person and his name is Mads Faurholt.

 On the show today, Mads and I talk about the extensive experience he has as an incredibly motivated entrepreneur. We chat about his youth, what drives him, the importance of understanding subconscious drivers and managing those motivators. We talk about how he used the book The Four-Hour Work Week to model his life and business, what he learned at business school vs. not attending business school, and the importance of measuring business models before starting businesses.

So many travelers have the dream of creating travel experiences for others and making it a business. So many people try to build a business like this and so many people fail. I was one of them. It isn’t the easiest business model and it really takes a very unique person to start, grow, and scale a travel business while being a long-term traveler themselves. Today, I am happy to introduce you to that entrepreneur. Matt Wilson is the founder of Under 30 Experiences.

Matt was on the top of a mountain in Iceland back in 2011 when he got the idea to create this business and over the past seven years after spending months and months on the ground in exotic locations all over the world has scaled this business to over 7-figures while living an incredible location independent life. We chat with Matt on exactly how he did it, how he continues to grow the company as organic as possible while creating and promoting sustainable tourism. It’s an inspiring episode with an inspiring entrepreneur!
