There are times in your life when you need to make a change. Those times of change become milestone moments that alter everything. You get a glimpse of what life could be if you reached inside and changed things to become the person you were meant to be. For years, Patrick worked hard building technology companies that would earn him millions. He was working 75-hour weeks, pushing his body to the limits, and feeling completely exhausted and unfulfilled.
The day he stepped out of a hospital, having fought for his life on the operating table against a rare case of Leukemia and almost losing it, he had one of those milestone moments. He felt the wind for the first time and took the opportunity to stop and think, “What the hell am I doing with my life?” Things changed from that moment and today, he chases adventure for a living. Yes, that’s right. Patrick is a full time adventurer on a mission to help people around the world find their adventurer within.
The day Sweeney started taking steps to find his adventurer again, he unlocked a passion and energy for life that had been lost for a long time. He has seen too many people spend a lifetime working for the weekend and saying, “I wish I could do that but I can’t.” Life is meant to be fun and Patrick discovered that he could change the story he was telling himself and find adventure in his life again. In fact, he needed to do it for himself, his kids and for the people in his life who mattered the most. He has been an Olympic level athlete and best selling author and grown technology companies around the world and sold them for millions. But right now; this very day, he is living his life to its fullest, exploring the adventurer within, breaking world records, and embracing every day as if it were his last. Patrick wants to help others do the same, and become better partners, parents and people.
