Lessons From Caring for the Dying and Bike Packing 18 Countries With Jerry Kopack

If you were given a gift of time, how would you use it?

Jerry Kopack is an author, speaker, and recovering cubicle dweller. After doing his time in corporate America, he founded and ran a hospice for 10 years. Through serving patients at the end of their lives, Jerry learned the greatest lesson, one not found in any business school or cubicle – the value of time.

In this episode, Jerry shares what he’s learned from caring for the dying and how that led to building a life of travel and bike packing around the globe. You’ll learn why he refers to his corporate career as “soulless” and how he unexpectedly discovered his passion for hospice care, how a two-month bike tour turned into nearly two years, and the invaluable insights he discovered about himself and the human experience along the way.

Are you using your time well? I’d love to hear your thoughts and hope you’ll share them by sending me an audio message.
