In this episode, eco-friendly lifestyle expert Danny Seo talks to us about how he found his true calling at 12 years old, how being famous in Korea at a young age helped him keep his ego in check, and how he navigates tough situations by trying to understand the underlying intentions. Also, there may be a snake loose in his cabin, and he really hates golf. Listen:
From the age of 12, Danny has pretty much known what he wanted to do with his life. He started a successful nonprofit during high school that changed the entire trajectory of his life. From international recognition to 10 books to a magazine to a TV show, Danny takes advantage of reaching as many people as possible to spread his message of designing a sustainable life. He recounts his unusual story with us, including some of the challenges of running an international organization in rural Pennsylvania while still trying to graduate high school.
In recent years, Danny has been planning his eco-friendly takeover of all media, launching a magazine, Naturally, Danny Seo, which he is now bringing to the small screen with a TV show on NBC of the same name. He has long been known in the community as being a huge advocate of people making small changes in their lives, whether it be buying a hybrid, using a sustainable surface for countertops (as he demonstrated in his own home pictured below), or simply buying local produce.
Listen to Danny tell stories of cabin snakes and how he came to meet Jane Goodall (fyi - she's awesome!), and more!
