This week’s guest is Jon Ferrara. Jon shares his BF (before fulfillment) to AF (after fulfillment) story about how he came to realize his purpose in life after surviving a life-threatening illness.
Jon was on the top of the world. He had just sold his company Goldmine for enough money that set him up for the rest of his life and he was only in his 40s. He was feeling great until he began losing weight and was becoming very weak. After many doctor visits and tests, he embarked on a journey to defeat a form of cancer that is a common killer of people in their 40s.
Jon overcame this illness and is now thriving. He now understands that his purpose on this planet is to continually grow and the only way he wants to grow is by helping other people in his life grow and reach their potential.
Jon advises us to not chase material wealth at the expense of relationships by investing in helping others grow beginning with your immediate family, your close friends, and your community.
Jon is building another business (Nimble) and he’s enjoying the relationships he builds. The journey is the reward for Jon.
Tune into Jon’s BF to AF story. You may discover that your journey is the reward.
