# 3 - Gold Prospector - Scott James Berdahl
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
In this episode I speak with Scott Berdahl, a classmate and friend of mine and a professional gold digger, so to speak.
Scott grew up in the Yukon, Northern Canada, in a little cabin without running water. He spent his early days looking for minerals in the bush, later studying geology at MIT and joining the family mineral prospecting company. After working and studying at Saudi Arabia, he did his MBA in France and Singapore, and went back to business.
Today he is building a pan-Yukonian tourism and adventure company. If you’re heading North – hit him up!
