Entrepreneur Network partner Raul Villacis has been an entrepreneur for almost two decades, and over that time he has built his brand and created a successful real estate company. He identified himself as synonymous with his business ventures and threw everything he had into them. 

But, when the market crashed and real estate values plummeted, Villacis realized he was too connected to his work and tried to separate himself, if only by a degree.

It wasn't easy. He traveled the world seeking personal improvement, spending half a million dollars on his personal journey. 

Watch the video to learn why that journey was worth it.
