Have you ever concieved and built a hotel chain?
Jeremy is a living, breathing idea machine. Not the type who sits in his basement daydreaming, he lives and breathes ideas. He's one of the few people who have actually found and acted on their calling. He's overcome some of life's most tragic moments, suddenly losing his brother, adopting two children from Haiti, being diagnosed with a neurological condition, all formidable challenges and obstacles, but he doesn't let anything hold him back from pressing forward and accomplishing.
He’s the founder of a global photography movement, Help-Portrait, a mobile social networking app called OKDOTHIS, and an online teaching platform, See University. His latest endeavor is The Purpose Hotel, a planned global for-profit hotel chain designed to fuel the work of not-for-profit organizations.
Jeremy’s new book “I’m Possible: Jumping Into Fear and Discovering a Life of Purpose” is based on Jeremy’s viral life story video that was released in 2015 and launched Jeremy’s speaking career where he has delivered this message to tens of thousands across America ever since. The book dives much deeper into all of the stories and projects Jeremy has done and ultimately encourages people of all ages to jump into fear in order to find their own purpose in life.
In this episode, Jeremy talks about the day to day challenges he faces and the approach he takes to press on into his calling.
