In this episode of Keep Moving Forward I interview the Norwegian entrepreneurial sensation, Geir Ness.
52 episodes ago we embarked on a journey together that I will certainly never forget and today we celebrate one full year of aspiring to keep moving forward. From Disney blog to entrepreneurship podcast, I hope that each guest I’ve had the privilege to speak with has inspired you to continuously move forward in pursuit of your passions. I want to thank you all for sticking with me and supporting my podcast for so long; I can’t wait to see what our future has in store.
For my very first episode I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing a man who encapsulates not only the Disney spirit from which my podcast derives its name, but also a man who is the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit in its truest form. So it only seems fitting to bring us full circle and cap off this fantastic year in a follow up interview with the one and only, Geir Ness.
From aspiring actor to internationally acclaimed entrepreneur, public speaker, and author, there is truly nothing Geir Ness can’t do. In our first discussion, exactly one year ago, Geir goes into detail about his journey and the determination and hard work it took to get him to where he is today. Gaining his initial explosion into fame through his cosmetics company, featuring the first-ever Norwegian perfume, Laila, Geir burst onto the scene with a refusal to give up. Since he sold his first bottle up until now, so many incredible opportunities have been presented to Geir because of his relentless pursuit to turn his dream into a successful business. One such chance presented itself in the form of working with Walt Disney World. Geir travels almost 300 days a year with the majority of that time spent in the Norway Pavilion in WDW’s EPCOT Center, in Disneyland over California, and on the Disney Cruise Line promoting his many products. Which brings me to yet another reason I asked Geir back on the show: a new fragrance recently released by Geir that captures the essence of the Disney film sensation Frozen. While his life is a whirlwind of adventure, Geir says he wouldn’t want to be doing anything else, because he loves the people he gets to meet.
To have this incredible man on my show to wrap up one full year of hopefully inspiring you all to keep moving forward is such an honor. I’ve met him a number of times in Disney and he always greets me with a hug and as if we’ve been friends for years. Geir connects with every single person he comes in contact with and I know that you will gain incredible insight from what he has to offer. I hope that you enjoy my interview with the man who helped kick off my podcast, Geir Ness.
