My guest today is Eric Clarke. Eric might be best known in business world as CEO at Orion Advisor Services. But Eric also embodies the idea of the Everyday Explorer as well! He is a man of many talents as you will find out, but exudes widsom and humility with each word. What became clear to me is that Eric is made for doing hard things. He has built a mantra around doing the ‘easy things’ first (like running the first 18 miles of a marathon) so that he can get to work on the ‘hard things’ (such as the final 8 miles). The hard things are where we learn most about ourselves. You will learn how he plans his adventures and expects the inevitable pain cave that comes when one reaches for the limits of what is possible.
There is much to this conversation, and even if you have known Eric for a while, there are still gold nuggets in this conversation to pull from his experiences. From the Grand Canyon to the Napali coast of Kauai to the Four Pass loop around the Maroon Bells in Colorado, Eric’s stories will hopefully inspire you to pursue your own great adventure!
