Max Solomonyuk Dreams to Grow his Startup into a Unicorn

Max Solomonyuk is a software developer and newly self-dubbed entrepreneur who believes that being playfully curious about yourself and your surroundings will help you find new dreams or goals. After his first stint with solo-travel back in 2016, Max dreamt of being location independent so that he could see the world while working from these remote places. In 2019, he took the leap and went through Asia with just a backpack filled with a handful of clothes and his laptop. From working on a farm in Japan, to learning the art of sound healing in the Nepali Himalayas, to plugging into and building out an ex-pat community in Da Nang, Vietnam, Max gained many insights into confidence, self-motivation, and building community that he shares in this episode. 

After his travels were cut short due to the pandemic, Max and a few friends that he met in Bali, started an online video speed networking platform Hi Right Now that has recently gotten into a world-renowned accelerator Fast Track Malmo. He is now currently back in Bali where he is working full time on his current dream to make meeting people online less weird and more fun and effective.

About the Podcast

Dream Awakening with Misha Chakrabarti
Authentic conversations with people living with purpose
Hi, I’m Misha Chakrabarti, and I love to talk about dreams. On this podcast I have authentic conversations with people living with purpose. We’ll speak candidly about the joys, woes, laughs, traumas, and mishaps on the not-so-straight and narrow path to manifest a full and vibrant life. We’ll hear stories of the vulnerable moments of stepping out of the shadows and into ourselves. We’ll feel the full range of human emotion and maybe even connect more deeply with ourselves and the world around us. Along the way, I’ll look to answer questions like “how do we discover our passion,” “how do we find the courage to follow our hearts,” and “how do we keep the faith?” Taking the first step to awaken your dreams can be daunting, but sharing our stories we do not walk the road alone. To hear the podcast in Spanish search “Despertando Sueños con Misha Chakrabarti”.

Misha Chakrabarti

After a comfortable yet constrictive childhood Misha carried on carelessly to a corporate job in Boston. Then a month-long quarantine post-surgery gave him the space to step back with intention and reflect on what he truly wanted and what would make him happy. A few months later, he followed his heart and backpacked through South America, later taking a leap of faith to relocate to Buenos Aires, where he lives currently.

Now he's a speaker, podcaster, comedian, and coach. He wants to help you awaken your dreams, connect with yourself and others, and live vibrantly.
