Daniel Seddiqui

Finish What You Start

“Find something that’s worth pursuing and go for it.”

After 3 years on the dole, Daniel Seddiqui said 'enough was enough.' He left home and travelled across the US, trying out a job particular to each state every week. That's 50 jobs in 50 states in 50 weeks.

In those 50 weeks, Dan went from being a down-and-out to an Arizona border patrol agent, a jazz conductor, a TV weatherman and even a Las Vegas wedding planner.

Fearlessly embracing the likelihood of failure, Daniel is now an international bestselling author, highly demanded speaker, and director of an innovative career exploration program. He is the founder of Living the Map, which raises awareness of the varying cultures, careers, and environments across the country through outreach, educational endeavours, and community building.

Daniel encourages those to explore the world around them, to understand and respect one another and to make continuous discoveries to better themselves.
