Today I’m excited to welcome Braam Malherbe to The Quarter Life Comeback podcast.

Braam Malherbe is an extreme adventure, environmentalist and motivational speaker who has dedicated his life to saving the planet.

But Braam didn’t always have such a strong sense of purpose in his life.

After watching his Dad’s life fall apart, Braam became determined not to let the same happen to him. Yet after making a lot of money and “having it all” at a young age, the same started to happen to Braam. He decided to take himself to the mountains to take his own life.

However, after a unique experience on his ‘final’ night, Braam decided to turn things around and devoted the rest of his life to saving the planet, one extreme adventure at a time.

Braam is one of my personal mentors and his story is nothing short of inspiring. I was fortunate enough to be his backstage assistant when he delivered his TEDx talk, which you can find below.

Alright, let’s go hang out with Braam…
