In this episode we catch up with Raju Gurung, the CEO of Planet Local. He shares with us his story from a mountain village in Nepal, through Europe to now settling in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

His fascinating journey takes us through the opportunities and experiences that made him find his personal ikigai – stemming from the Japanese concept that directly translates into “reason for being” or “the reason for which you wake in the morning”, and shares with us how easy it is for you to also start your path towards your own personal ikigai.
