About The Author


Following a life changing event when he was thirty-three years old, John was inspired to sit down and tell the story of The Why Café. He had no previous experience or academic training as a writer.

Within a year after its release, word of mouth support from readers had spread the book across the globe—inspiring people on every continent, including Antarctica. It went on to become a #1 Bestseller, and has now been translated into twenty-one languages. John has since written other books, including Life Safari and The Big Five for Life.  He coauthored the book How to be Rich and Happy.

Through his writings and appearances on television and radio, John’s messages have inspired millions of people to live life on their terms. He has been honored alongside Oprah Winfrey, Wayne Dyer, and Deepak Chopra as one of the one hundred most inspirational thought leaders in the field of leadership and personal development.

All of this continues to humble and amaze him.

When he is not writing or speaking, he is out seeing the world. His longest trip was an almost year long adventure in which he and his wife backpacked around the globe.
