Greetings, SuperFriends! Today we are joined by Caspar Craven. Caspar is a successful serial entrepreneur, who has 30 years experience in building teams and making things happen. He started at age 14 working in start-up businesses, struggling businesses, high growth businesses, as well as large corporates. He's even built a team on a trophy-winning around the world racing yacht! But this is not why we had him on the show today. In fact we had him on the show because Caspar, his wife, and their 3 kids had one of the most incredible life experiences and adventures of anyone I've ever heard of - that is, they sailed around the world for 2 straight years, living, working, and homeschooling their kids on a boat. Crazy, right? I wanted to talk to Caspar not only about entrepreneurship and teams, but also about lifestyle design, leading a family, and setting up your life, your finances, and your goals so that you can also have this incredible amount of freedom. But, we went even further than that! We talked about all the different incredible life lessons and experiences that he gained both personally and professionally, as well as his advice for you on how you can create the life of your dreams, even if that is completely off the beaten path. I always enjoy talking to Caspar and this episode was no exception - I hope you enjoy it as well! -Jonathan Levi
This week Maria’s guest on the show is Caspar Craven, entrepreneur and adventurer. Caspar believes in challenging conventional thinking on how leaders and teams become truly effective to create extraordinary results. Caspar has 30 years of experience in building teams to make things happen. Starting as an entrepreneur at the age of 14, he has built and led teams in global corporations, start-ups, struggling and high growth businesses, and on a trophy-winning world racing yacht. But his toughest challenge by far was building his family team to sail around the world with his wife and three children, then aged 9, 7, and 2. Recorded on: 25th January 2018 Show Notes: In this week’s show, Casper tells us about his first business at the age of 14 selling crabs by the sea, his amazing adventure sailing around the world with his family. What he discovered about home schooling his children and sharing the lessons he learned on his adventure that apply to the business world. All this and more… NB – no books were thrown into the sea so please don’t write in to complain Significant quotes: “What is it that you can do that really gets them engaged and passionate, and I'm going to give them the freedom to go and do that” Links: More about Caspar Craven More about Maria Franzoni Ltd Connect with Maria on Linkedin Connect with Maria on FaceBook Next Week: Join me next week when Maria's guest will be Business Leader, Entrepreneur, Team Builder and Corporate Trailblazer, Kevin Gaskell
