TTE009: Wall Street Burnout, Ayahuasca, Digital Nomad and Life Coach in Thailand with Christopher Chiu

Today’s guest is Christopher Chiu. He started his career in new york city and quickly got sucked into the stressful and unfulfilling lifestyle of wall street.  His physical and mental health started to suffer dramatically. A turning point came when his lung collapsed twice in the age of 28. Now seeking a better life he came across the term digital nomad. On deeper research he got sucked into a world of freedom, happiness and endless possibilities. Without wasting much time he took a 6 week vacation and flew out to Thailand where he found fulfillment in training Muay Thai and enjoying the easy lifestyle. After returning home he knew that he wanted a different life and as soon as he was done with his MBA he took immediate action, quit his job and got a one way ticket to Thailand. 3 years later he has become a serial entrepreneur with several businesses and also coaches clients who are stuck in similar situation then he was how to create the life they want. He also tells me about his disrupted childhood and how he found healing through Ayahuasca in South America. I really enjoyed this talk. It’s been truly inspiring and I hope you enjoy it too.
