Today I am continuing my conversation with Avery Breyer and she's going to explain how she and her husband have been able to afford traveling the globe with their two young boys for the past 2.5 years.

She talks about how they came to own a million dollars in real estate, the books she's written that have made her a multiple best-selling author, how freelance SEO writing earns her about $60/hour, and the course she created to help others learn how to do what she does.

Today I am continuing my conversation with Jake Heilbrunn; an amazing young man who left an unfulfilling life behind to take a 4-month solo backpacking trip through Central America.

In part 2 we talk about the 300-page memoir he wrote and self-published about that journey and the powerful, and life changing, experiences he had.

We're finally back with another unconventionalist! 

This week's guest is Jake Heilbrunn and, after realizing his unhappiness with his life was causing physical ailments, he left college at 18 in order to explore Central America for four months.

In that time he helped teach English to kids, trekked 75 miles through the jungle to explore ancient Mayan ruins, climbed volcanoes, became comfortable with being naked around people he barely knew, camped on the beach in Nicaragua, and experienced a powerful Cacao Ceremony that provided a vision for his future that eventually became a reality. 

Jake has recently released a memoir of his travels, Off the Beaten Path, and you can find a link for it in the show notes (link provided below).
