Life Athletes, hello and welcome back to season 2 of the Life Athletics podcast! It’s been an amazing ride with a hundred episodes, and so many inspiring guests that have been providing us with so much value and wisdom!
Today’s guest is Guy Vincent. He is the founder of Publishizer, a crowdfunding platform for authors and publishers. Guy used to work in the publishing industry and felt like he wanted to live his life to the fullest. He quit his job, moved to India, and started to bootstrap the idea of Publishizer.
On this episode, we talk about the humble beginnings of Publishizer and what made him push for this concept to come to life. Guy and I discuss relationships - be it emotional, romantic, friendships, or business - and how they are vital to our lives. Also, he gives us insight of what’s it’s like to be a guy like Guy.
