Hello everyone here at Tynan.com -- I'm Sebastian Marshall, and I had the pleasure of having Tynan reach out to me around a couple years ago and linking up with him in Japan earlier this year. It was absolutely a blast of a trip and it was great to experience his deep thinking about the world. Under a surface of a steady levity, there is a deep well of philosophical insight.
The main way I spend my time these days is through GiveGetWin, an idea that radically rethinks how nonprofits and philanthropy can exist in this modern century. We take people who are amazing -- like Tynan -- and they'll donate their product, service, or time. Then people can get the product, service, or session for a donation to charity.
We look to make everyone win by really looking at incentives and understanding what's in it for the provider of the service (in Tynan's case, he loves connecting with his readers on different topics, meeting new amazing people, and fleshing out his ideas on important topics while helping people -- others might be more interested in promoting a book, marketing exposure, or testing a new product idea, etc.) So the provider gets their goals met, the donor/buyer gets something amazing at favorable pricing and the feeling of doing good, and our core volunteer team get to the most amazing lab in the world for honing skills, doing good, and connecting with their heroes.
Anyway, enough with the "blah blah blah" preface! When we run deals, we usually do an interview and bring some insights of the people. I wanted to share this interview and announce Tynan's deal directly on here first, since a lot of people were disappointed when his last appearance at GiveGetWin sold out so fast. This one is very specific -- "Hardcore Adventuring Prep" -- a way to connect with Tynan on the topic of planning and executing your next grand adventure or international travel, whether you're a beginner or a veteran. This interview offers some of his thoughts on the topic.
So... You're Thinking About Adventuring? by Tynan, as told to Sebastian Marshall
