Q. Why did you leave Disney?

A.  Answered a calling to do something bigger.

A combination of events in 2008-09 led to critical self-reflection as i approached my 50th birthday.

This led to a six-year plan – to retire at 55 and it included four things:

  1. In 2008, start a business – to put a dent in the Universe.
  2. In 2013, publish my first book – to confront excuses, regrets & second chances.
  3. In 2014, retire at 55 from Disney to cater to organizations that want to change the world.
  4. To not be on the road while our Son attends High School. He graduates in 2019.
