From Award Winning Sales Executive to World Traveler
About This Week’s Guest
Matt Javit was a five-time sales award winner with the international Technology Consulting company that he spent 9 incredible years with but then he left it all behind in February of 2017, along with his vast work network, volunteer efforts, and friends & family, to follow his love of travel with his wife.
They are now on an adventure around the world meeting new people and discovering new cultures.
“”And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist”
His tips to become more culturally competent are:
- Be open and for that, you don’t have to travel the world per se. You can attend local events as well.
- Learn to ask questions; people like talking about themselves.
- Lay down your phone and unplug those earphones. See, hear, and experience the world around you. All of it.
