Episode 84Igniting Your Passion From Corporate To Entrepreneurship with Gavin Sequeira

Igniting Your Passion From Corporate To Entrepreneurship with Gavin Sequeira

Our guest on the podcast this week is Gavin Sequeira, he is an advocate for resilience and change, having lived in war-torn countries, and escaping religious persecution growing up. With over 10 years in the corporate world, Gavin was made redundant overnight, catapulting his spiritual and entrepreneurial journey.

Today, Gavin lives his mission of empowering entrepreneurs to work 'smarter' not harder using a combination of skills, intuition, and systems. He is a speaker, author, mentor, and podcaster and has been featured on Sky News Business, Huffington Post, Success Magazine, and dozens of other leading media channels.

Today we’re going to be diving deeply into how we can each fulfill our true potential as we discuss Gavin’s perspective on how you can ignite your passion from corporate to entrepreneurship. You will hear about Gavin’s life journey from Pakistan to Kuwait and eventually settling in Australia, and how the persecution and the experience of living in war-torn countries has shaped his worldview. He understands what it means to be resilient in the face of persecution, what it means to make a difference, and how finding meaning and purpose is so important in today’s modern world.

Listen in as we talk through the steps that help you to reflect on your own life and career, including the opportunities available to you if you feel trapped in a corporate organization that doesn’t align with what matters most to you. As Gavin mentions “we don’t work to live, we live to work”. Gavin shares some concrete examples of people who have made the shift and he shares a heart-warming story of breaking bread with a family in Bolivia that completely changed his perspective on life.

If you work in the corporate environment and have a sense that there could be a different way of working that would create more meaning for you, then I encourage you to listen to this diverse conversation for insights. I suspect you’ll enjoy Gavin's perspective on moral courage, and fulfilling your potential. I also suspect you might be pleasantly surprised to hear that becoming a corporate escapee is not as hard as you might think.

Key Takeaways

  • How Gavin’s diverse life journey has shaped his own life and led him to his empowering work with others.
  • How you can create a life and career with more meaning.
  • A life-changing experience with a poor family in Bolivia.
  • The courage to be authentic as a leader and to stand up for yourself, your team, and those who matter most to you.
  • How to design your life rather than living by default.
