Inspirational talk from Tony Wheeler at the second Startup Grind event in depo8.
Tony talked about his journey from starting Lonely Planet in 1973 with his wife Maureen, through the sale of the business to BBC, to today where he funds over 50 projects in the developing world through his foundation Planet Wheeler.
When asked for some tips and advice for start up businesses his answer was simple.
“Do what you love above anything else”.
