I'm super excited to finally talk to my old friend Adonis Gaitatzis, whom I first met back when we became roommates (with 2 other dudes, a total of 4!) in this makeshift cheapo frat like basement apartment in the southern-east end of Ottawa, Canada, and we all wound up here because we were either in studies, working, or just finding ourselves.
I've been thinking about what it would be like to have Adonis on the podcast since the 1st season, and finally sat down this season to make a list of "want to/need to" guests for the podcast, and he was one of the tops. After a couple near misses, we finally got to connect via Skype due to being on two different coasts (Adonis in California, me in Ontario) and I feel like I really only scratched the surface of the experiences this man has had since we lost communication after 2005, and here now in 2018, I am hearing all about what he's done for the first time right along with you, the loyal listeners.
In a nutshell, he's built two companies (shut them both down after scaling different heights) traveled to many places all over the world to meet new people and experience many cultures, took up Spanish guitar (he plays a little bit here on this episode) and met his dad for the first time since he was 3 years old, where he joined him in his native Greece to live in a Greek monastery as a monk for a few years, and has written some books just recently.
The best is yet to come, I'm sure!
