Although he certainly has a way with words, as evidenced by his success as a writer, it will surprise most people to know that he never thought of himself as a writer. As the author of 23 books, and countless articles, Wade Davis sits down with host Richard Wiese on the Explorers podcast to tell us about where he came from and what he’s passionate about.
Wade Davis grew up in Canada, and that’s where he lives today. He made many alternative choices that others might not have but felt he didn’t get much direction from his parents when he was young. Later in life, on the other hand, his dad told him that there’s good and evil and that he needed to take his side and get on with it. That’s pretty sage advice.
In the discussion about intentions, Wade tells us that you must own your choices to become the architect of your own life! He considers his role as an “elder,” encouraging us to appreciate the younger people coming behind us. They are essential and should be acknowledged, according to Wade.
The empathy and love for people he brings to his work have played a huge part in his success. Interestingly enough, he reminds us that a lot of talent comes from hard work.
