This podcast episode was recorded in Chiang Mai Thailand.
This special episode is an international story of pursuing creative passions, changing careers after burnout and going against cultural norms halfway around the world in Thailand.
While visiting Chiang Mai, Thailand, LIVE A GREAT STORY founder Zach Horvath frequented PHOX Studio, his favorite coffee shop in the city. Through frequent visits for morning computer sessions, Zach got to know Gim, the owner of the coffee shop.
Turns out Gim has an inspiring story of following his own self-directed path, dropping out of high school to pursue photography, getting a video production degree in Denmark and then starting his own coffee shop.
Gim asked around for suggestions from family and friends, and he stumbled upon a film school in Denmark that was accepting new students.
In search of inner peace and clarity, Gim traveled to India.
