Episode Description

Do your passions and talents balance perfectly with what the world needs and is prepared to pay for? My guest and good friend Jane Hansom epitomises this state of balance beautifully as summarised in the Japanese concept of Ikigai. So how do you make this happen for you or is this just an unreachable dream? In this interview, we will look at how one step at a time Jane’s life and career in London as a busy marketeer became entwined with a passion for long distance triathlon. Nudged reluctantly into entering the London marathon at age 40, over the next 10 years Jane became a world name on the Ironman and Triathlon stage both as an elite competitor and as a business leader. Today, Jane not only sits on the board of the Triathlon Industry Association and The Professional Triathletes Organisation advising government sporting bodies and developing triathlon into a major global sporting series she also now lives in one of the most stunning locations in the world. Join us and consider how you might transition your life into this beautiful state of Ikigai – one step at a time.
