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).
