Extreme Lifestyle Experiments: My TEDx Talk

Earlier this month, I was honored with the opportunity to speak to an audience in Cambodia, for the first ever TEDx Phnom Penh event.

There were some absolutely amazing people putting this thing together, and some really excellent speakers in attendance, but the really cool part is that the audience was full of young Khmers, most of which were interested in entrepreneurship in some fashion.

The theme of the conference was ‘Building the Future’ – a fitting idea, due to the overwhelming potential of the Cambodian people, but the unfortunate series of events in their recent history that have held them back in some ways – and my take on this topic was to explain how I approach problems by attacking them from a different angle, and how even the smallest lifestyle experiment can help you get the perspective you need to find that new approach.

My talk is above, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
