Meeting Inspiring People

I love that feeling when you walk away from a meeting feeling inspired and completely invincible. I have spent little more than a week in Johannesburg and already feel at home.

The opportunities been given to me to explore and do what I love has already presented itself. I was introduced by a good friend to ¬†attended a meeting at a Venture Capital firm based in Sandton, Gauteng. Not sure what I was going to say or do in the meeting, but there I was. Minutes before, I spoke to my friend saying that the one guy was a professional golfer. Hell, I know less about golf than I know about how to defusing a bomb…its always the blue wire.

Moral of story: you never know who you are going to meet, so always keep an open mind and allow people to inspire you.
