HOW IT ALL BEGAN
No radio-active spiders, no last-of-their-race beings from outer space, no Amazon warriors in the Hero’s Journey story. But there definitely is a quest behind it all.
In 2007 Peter was struck by a vision to make the world a more creative place. Travelling the world, he set up The Hero’s Journey, now one of the world’s most recognized inspirators for creative professionals. But he wanted to empower more people than could afford The Hero’s Journey in-person travelling courses. Having grown the company into a beacon for online training , he knew affordable, online access was the key. Now The Hero’s Journey delivers its power formula to any creative professionals with the courage to grow themselves. Into more creative people, better entrepreneurs, better storytellers. Wherever they are in the world. Because we all have the power to become our own personal heroes.
