John Strelecky, #1 bestselling inspirational author of many books including The Cafe on the Edge of the World, joins me to talk about his series of books and how he has been navigating the world over the past two years during the global pandemic.

John’s other books include Return to the Why Cafe, The Big Five for Life, The Big Five for Life – Continued, Life Safari, and Ahas! – Moments of Inspired Thought. He co-authored the book, How to be Rich and Happy.

His works have been translated into forty-three languages and sold more than 6 million copies worldwide.

Following a life changing event when he was thirty-three years old, John was inspired to sit down and tell the story of The Cafe on the Edge of the World, his first book.

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 win bestseller of the year 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020 in Europe and became a #1 bestseller in North America.

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, Tony Robbins, 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 isn’t writing or speaking, John spends extensive time backpacking around the world. He has taken extended trips to Africa, the Amazon Basin, Yucatan Peninsula, South America, SE Asia, Europe and China.
