    Author and Adventurer Kurt Koontz about his book A Million Steps

    in Self Help

    VividLife Radio's Kristen White speaks with author and adventurer Kurt Koontz about his recent book, A Million Steps. In A Million Steps, Kurt shares his month-long adventure walking from village to village in Spain along a route that pilgrims have followed since medieval times. Kurt also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. Kurt Koontz grew up with a lot of the outdoors in Boise, Idaho. He studied business at the University of Puget Sound, then returned to his hometown to rise through the ranks as a sales executive for Micron Technology. While working, he traveled on business across the U.S. and the world. When he retired at age 36, he took to adventure travel—mostly by bicycle across Europe and in the Western U.S. and Canada. It wasn't until 2012 that he began writing about his adventures. That year, he walked the 500-mile El Camino de Santiago, the Spanish pilgrimage route dating from medieval times. This journey, he says, was a very different kind of travel. On the Camino, he lived moment to moment, not knowing where he would find the next meal or sleep the next night. As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories. Recorded in his journal and e-mails home, they became the foundation for his first book, A Million Steps, due out late this year. He now lives and writes near family and friends, on a tree-lined creek in Boise. http://kurtkoontz.com/about-kurt/

    A Million Steps with Guest Kurt Koontz:The Jenn Royster Show

    in Travel

    Dr. Jenn welcomes guest Kurt Koontz, author of the book, A Million Steps. The title for this book is a rough estimate of the number of steps he took while walking the Camino de Santiago. Over the course of a kilometer, he counted 1,153 steps. Kurt did the math and discovered that he would take a total of 909,717 steps on the trail between St. Jean Pied-de-Port, where it began, and Santiago de Compostela, where it ended. Kurt added in another 3,000 or so steps per day to cover the walks to dinner and short hikes for sightseeing. Kurt will be sharing his insights on self discovery, lessons learned and the inspirations gained on a solo pilgrimage journey.


    About Kurt Koontz: After retiring early from his job as a successful sales executive for a Fortune 500 technology company, Kurt Koontz volunteered in his community and traveled across Europe and North America. He never considered writing a book until he walked nearly 500 miles across Spain in 2012. Those million steps were so compelling that he returned home and began writing and speaking about his life-changing adventures. He lives and writes on a tree-lined creek in Boise, Idaho.

    How To Have A Million Dollars By Your 65th Birthday

    in Education

    Dear friends,

    It is painful to tell our true story because we can see the results of this truth all around us.  Even in our own lives and families. Here are 8 mental obstacles we must stand, face and conquer to do more than just survive, so we can thrive. 

    Our community's money story is painful because:
    1. we do not plan for a prosperous future, we hope & pray
    2. we do not seriously implement a plan, we talk about it
    3. we are ignorant due to lack of knowledge
         (we reject the knowledge when offered)
    4. we are unwilling to change and grow to succeed
    5. we value the opinions of those who don't know or care
    6. we've been conditioned - unconsciously taught lack
    7. we let that conditioning cause us to make excuses
    8. we wait until it's too late, from the cradle to the grave

    Here’s an example of AMAZING: You can have $1 million in the bank on your 65th birthday, here’s what you would need to save each month depending on your age when you start.  Together we can create the cash flow to do this. These figures assume an interest rate of 10%.

    25 years old - $160/month
    35 years old - $440/month
    45 years old - $1,317/month
    55 years old - $4,822/month
    60 years old - $13,200/month

    Don't wait.  Let's get together to change this story one family at a time starting with you and those you know. Let's do  AMAZING prosperity!


    Best wishes for a prosperous & happy future,

    Robin
