Hi, I’m Miroslav Chodak.

Miroslav Chodak

I’m a father, husband and entrepreneur. I have a huge passion for helping people build great businesses, existential interest in sustainability and more than 25 years of experience in environmental policy, marketing and business development.

My mission

At the lowest level, I have to provide for my family and put food on the table.

At a higher level, I want to help make the world a place where everybody is free to pursue their own dreams and passions; a world where the only thing people need to worry about is fulfilling their own potential and contributing to making the world an ever-better place.

At the highest level, I worry about the survival of the humankind.

I believe in honesty and transparency. I share everything I know and most of what I think.

My story

Not long ago, I realized something surprising:

Without a doubt…

My biggest contribution to this world are my 3 children.

Not only do they outnumber me 3 to 1. They also have their full lives ahead of them, while I have only half, at best.

So, combined, my kids have 6 x more potential to contribute to this world than I will ever have.

All I have to do is enable them to.

For me, that means two things:

  1. Give them a childhood that allows them to grow up with as few limiting beliefs as possible.
  2. Do everything I possibly can to help create the kind of world where my children can live their lives to the fullest.

This website is about that second thing:

Creating a world that is kind to our children.

A world where everyone is free to pursue their own dreams and passions.

A world where the only thing people need to worry about is fulfilling their own potential and making the world an ever-better place.

What do I bring to the table?

I’m a systems thinker and I’m good at seeing connections other people don’t see.

I’m also good at predicting change and identifying solutions that work.

Additionally, I have a lifetime of experience with big systems changes…

For starters…

I was born in the communist Czechoslovakia.

At 20 years of age, I took part in the revolution that overthrew the communist government.

I lived through the transition of my country from a communist dictatorship to a market-based economy and democracy.

I was 24, when my country split into 2 entities.

I witnessed first-hand the breakup of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, the unification of Germany and the accession of 13 new countries to the European Union.

During my career I worked in all of those countries, including the post-war Balkans (it was pretty eye-opening).

I speak 5 languages.

I have 2 Master’s degrees:

  • M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences
  • M.Sc. in Environmental Management

The first 10 years of my career, I spent working for an international organization advising European and Central Asian governments on environmental policy, while managing a team of Project Managers, carrying out complex multi-disciplinary international projects with a combined value in millions of USD.

I spent another 20 years working in marketing and business development.

I built and ran my own business, started 4 more for my clients and advised hundreds of businesses around the world on all aspects of digital marketing, business strategy and business development

I want to use this unique combination of business and environment expertise to help create a better, more sustainable world for our children.

The way I want to do this is by:

  1. Educating people on sustainability, the consequences of our actions and how each of us individually is responsible for the future of humanity.
  2. Discovering and discussing solutions that will put us firmly on a path towards sustainability and a prosperous future for all.

Put simply…

I want to help people make better decisions and live more responsibly.
