Welcome back to the thought-leaders podcast! Yomi Adegoke is again embarking on a journey toward the future this week. She is joined today by Nono Konopka. Nono is an author, entrepreneur, film producer, podcaster and speaker – there’s almost nothing Nono doesn’t love and will do. Well, except for one thing – biking! It is a great twist of fate, then, that this man and his friend traveled from Berlin to Beijing a few years ago – by bicycle. Out of his comfort zone, onto the saddle and straight into the big wide world – and all for a great cause. This journey inspired him to produce “Biking Borders,” one of the most-watched documentaries on Netflix. A crazy journey watched and supported by people from all over the world. He talks to us about his lessons for living a truly fulfilled life, his mission, and new ways of fundraising. One question Nono has asked himself over and over again in recent years is: What do I really want in life? Let’s find out together if he has found the answer. 03:00 The meaning of Forwardism 07:30 Cycling for the good cause 08:30 The mission of Adam Braun and Pencils for Promise 09:55 A journey from Berlin to Beijing 13:20 The special motivation to continue going 15:50 One friendship and one shared vision 17:55 A cycling journey on social media 22:00 The future of fundraising 24:00 It is more about asking the question than giving an answer 25:40 A really good life: Trying, trying, trying 27:00 Stepping out of the comfort zone You can find more information about our host Yomi Adegoke here and about our guest Nono Konopka here.
