Dr John Demartini is recognised globally as a leading influencer on human behaviour.

He currently travels full time (360 days a year) and lives on a ship. His global career involves doing speaking engagements, training programs and media interviews all over the world.

Personally, I had the privilege to attend one of John’s program “The Breakthrough Experience” and have benefitted a lot from it where it has transformed my relationship with my family, relationship with myself in the core areas and shaped my life as an entrepreneur in a positive way.

In this episode, I spoke with Dr Demartini on how he built his global influence.
