If you’ve ever caught yourself daydreaming about what it would be like to hit the road and start your own adventure travel company, or follow your passion by building your very own bike company, or just fantasizing about the life of a professional skier; then I’ve found a podcast for you. Jeremy Jensen’s Adventurepreneur Playbook Podcast dives deep into the fears, hacks, and mindsets of big-name and up-and-coming entrepreneurs who have built their passions into startups, small businesses, lifestyles, or personal brands. More specifically, the lives of Adventurepreneurs who the thrill seekers, explorers, fun hogs, thought leaders, influencers, and lifestyle designers. Over the course of 16 episodes, he’s had on big names like the infamous climber, Alex Honnold and big mountain skier, Johnny Collinson. In addition, he shares stories from lesser known adventurepreneurs like Randall Jacobs & Alice Liu of Thesis Bike, Frank Scotti of Nomad Inc, Adventurer of the year Emi Koch, Cofounder of Sherpas Cinema Dave Mossop, and tons more.
In his last episode of the first season, Jeremy put out a call-to-action to reach out to him to share your own story about how you’ve created a lifestyle or adventure business. Thinking nothing would come from my message to him on instagram, I figured what the hell, and sent it off anyway. Two weeks later, Jeremy surprisingly responded and he wanted to hear more about my story. We started some dialog over messenger, and eventually into a few phone calls. Turns out, he wanted to use my story to share with his audience yet another way to follow your dream and not give up the normal 9-5 job we all cling to.
So check out the episode below, as well as the rest of his podcast which are sure to be way more interesting than mine was. Jeremy has a real talent to connect with all of his guests and create a genuine conversation that is filled with useful info to those adventurepreneurs in the audience, as well as epic stories. My personal favorites are the Brody Leven episode, Julian Carr, Dave Mossip, and Jim Harris one. But realistically, they’re all good. So go check it out, and you’ll be hooked.
