Hi, I'm Dan.
100% me. 300% ENFP.
I'm Dan Johnston
If you don't know who I am, you're already half way to being a better ENFP because you aren't spending much time on YouTube or Instagram! Well done.
My name's Dan and I'm arguably the world's #1 ENFP Expert. As a coach and trainer, I've met 100s of ENFPs in person from dozens of countries as well as interacted with and coached 1000s of ENFPs online. This has allowed me to understand ENFPs far beyond theory and see more patterns, desires, and struggles than anyone else.
I'm the founder and host of Dreams Around The World, a popular YouTube Channel and Podcast tailored to ENFPs who want to develop their personalities and create an awesome life. Oh, and I created ENFP Unleashed, the premiere community for ambitious ENFPs.
I'm also an avid traveler. I think living in a new culture is the best way to understand ourselves and the world as a whole. I left Canada in 2012 and have since called 9 countries home including Costa Rica, Portugal, Italy, Germany and The Czech Republic.
Most importantly, according to my clients, despite the fancy bio, I'm as authentic, down to earth, and personal as one can be and a pretty hilarious guy to boot!
Fun facts about me & My Beliefs
Take it or leave it, I am who I am
ENFP? ADHD? More Please.
Has there ever been a moment when I wanted to be someone else? HELL NO. I'd be bored out of my fucking mind.
I Have Awesome Stories
From drinking tequila while coaching a cartel boss to annoying The Rock at the gym, or meeting a real life James Bond in Spain: Every story I share in my books, videos, and e-mails is 100% true. (even when I wish they weren't)
True Certainty Comes From Within
Building walls, and retirement accounts, to "guarantee safety" is a fool's strategy for battling anxiety.
We can only be truly certain when we are certain of ourselves to trust we can handle whatever comes our way.
True But Very Embarassing
I Don't Believe EVERY Test
Tests and type psychology can advise and help us reflect, but should never limit us.
Maybe Everything is Genetics
My Mom, a prolific traveler, and my Dad, an international businessman, were born 11,000km apart, met on a flight to New Zealand, and married 5 weeks later. Perhaps it is no coincidence I've lived in 10 countries, built multiple international businesses, and experienced more romance than a back to back showing of Love Actually & The Notebook.
And before you ask, no, sadly, I wasn't conceived in international air space.
What My Clients Say
As an ENFP it isn't always easy to find a coach or adviser who understands you. Fortunately, you're not going to have that problem anymore.
My Approach To "Work"
Who I am as a professional
A Decade+ Experience
I am not a YouTuber or Podcaster...I am a Coach. I have a degree in psychology from a top university and completed my first coaching training in 2008 and many more since. I have worked one-on-one with ENFPs from 30+ countries including every continent.
I Don't Believe in Retirement
Your Greatest Gift is...You
I Love Meeting My Clients
I Merge Worlds To Get Results
Research - The greatest and latest research shows what often applies universally and can serve my clients.
Timeless Wisdom - Because not everything can, or needs to be, proven by a double blind placebo study.
"Do What You Love & The Money Will Come"
-My Mom's Timeless Wisdom
"According to Abraham Maslow, whenever we pursue something greater than ourselves, or even attempt to improve ourselves and "move up" in our own lives, we will feel a high level of apprehension, tension, and resistance. This is normal and trusting yourself to move past it is one of the greatest growth experiences you can have.
Cowering to external pressure, while undesirable, relieves this tension. Like a baby coddled by mother you feel a welcomed wave of relief.
The only problem is you've just set yourself up to be a 40 year old who still shits in his own pants.
Or her pants. As a feminist I firmly believe women are just as, if not more, capable of running from their dreams as men are."
Me, The ENFP Calling
I Got You
I am not courageous. I'm the last one up. I drag my feet to the edge of the rocks and peer over into the water. I'm scared and I know I need to jump.
Is there any better feeling than that mid-air metamorphosis? The flip from fear to freedom: What was moments before doubt and uncertainty transformed to focus and flow.
The leaps we take in life aren't always so clean but the experience is the same. I know to take that leap you need feel a level of safety...that someone else has jumped before and while it might be intense, you're going to be OK.
I've worked one-on-one with 100s of ENFPs from over 30 countries and cultures. I'm not always the most organized, nor am I perfect, but, as my assistant recently opened my eyes to in this voice note, it seems I care more than most and as your coach will always have your back.
And yes, the water is wonderful.
