Have you ever felt a strong pull towards something? Yet, you’re still unsure whether you’re just thinking things or if the feeling is something worth listening to? In this fast paced world, always going, going, going, it’s easy for all the noise to quickly cloud those gut feelings, in return, losing a lot of time and money.
Ty Maves, co-founder and Executive Director of True North Wilderness, knew he needed something different in his life than the standard path. From originally being a Russian and an International Relations major, to eventually working at a wilderness therapy program, Ty has learned that stepping into your complete interest takes time. Going from thinking wilderness programs were insane, to working at one for 4 years as a guide and then going back for another several years as a therapist, Ty has found wilderness therapy to be, by far, the best education he has ever received in psychology. Ty now runs his own business in wilderness therapy and continues to step into further interests, in leadership and optimizing business.
On this episode of Success is Subjective, Ty joins Joanna to share his journey on how he managed to find his path in the field of wilderness therapy for what turned out to be 20 years. He shares how he learned to trust his gut on what he needed in life, which eventually led him to co-found True North Wilderness Program with his wife. Listen in for insight on Ty’s story of how he learned to listen to his gut and grow that feeling into something meaningful, where he now works to provide an inspiring experience for positive change in nature for adolescents, young adults, and their families.
