About this Episode

Unexpected things happen all the time. Maybe you get laid off. Maybe your partner breaks up with you. Maybe you have to pack up and move away from everyone you know.

How you choose to view them changes everything though.

In our second podcast out of Portland, we talked with Sean Ogle, founder of Location Rebel about the unexpected. Sean couldn't have been more perfect for this conversation. In 2009, he unknowingly resigned from his job (talk about unexpected). This led to him building Location Rebel, moving to Thailand for an extended period, and setting out on a quest to play the top 100 golf courses in the world.
