Walking towards a better life

In this fascinating episode, Anni talks with Joao Perre Viana, Founder and Pioneer of Walking Mentorship, about how his love of walking and being in nature helped him to realised his purpose. 

Along the way Joao shares his experience of growing up living by the ocean in Portugal, and how, encouraged by his parents, he expanded his horizons and travelled far and wide. Always walking wherever he was. 

Joao describes how he invited a large group of friends to help him realise his dream, and the birth of Walking Mentorship. He also reveals how despite never really believing in the power of partnership, he met his partner Nuno Santos Fernandes.
