Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, calls Jake Ducey a “millennial version of Steve Jobs”.
But take one look at Jake’s athletic height and wavy, golden surfer hair, and you’ll realize Wozniak wasn’t talking about a physical resemblance.
But Jake’s looks are as close as he’ll ever get to the American Dream, if your idea of said Dream is to go to business school, get a college basketball degree, and spend the rest of your life chasing bigger houses and faster cars.
At the age of 19, Jake decided to leave college, leap Into the Wind (incidentally, the title of his first Amazon bestseller book), and travel the world.
Somewhere along the way, Jake fell off a cliff and found the meaning of life.
That meaning will, perhaps even violently, shake up the way you live yours… and change how you choose to spend your tiny speck of time on earth.
