This week, Adam Braun, New York Times bestselling author and the founder of the charity Pencils of Promise, joins The James Altucher Show. Today you will hear how Adam found his purpose in life and what near-disaster made him realize he was meant to live doing what he loved. "When you are pushed to your limit and you are faced with your own mortality, it's the expectation, almost knowledge that you have something more to live for." This is how Adam describes the moment that changed his life forever. You probably haven't had a near death experience, but today you will learn that there is more than one way to find your purpose in life – Adam describes three. Adam has backpacked around the world, risked his life, and gained knowledge that led him to start an extraordinary charitable organization. This leads James to ask him... "Was it worth it to go to college, given that a lot of the impactful things that happened to you happened outside the classroom?" You won't want to miss Adams response. You'll also find out where he says he learned the most. This is the show that gives you the knowledge and tools that will lead you to a successful and significant life... and make it a story worth telling. Enjoy!
