091: Caspar Craven | Putting Family First In Business

Dec 24, 2018 | Interviews, Podcast


Today I am joined by Caspar Craven, a speaker, adventurer, and author of Where The Magic Happens. Caspar has been an entrepreneur since the young age of 14, where he has done everything from crabbing to building teams for top companies. I wanted to have Caspar on the show because he did something I have never heard of anyone else doing: he took a two year trip around the world to sail with his wife and three young children. Today, Caspar and I talk about his upbringing and what he learned in his youth, growing his relationship with his wife through a shared narrative, and how this incredible trip has changed his family.
