Call in to speak with the host
Jacob Nordby has a long history entrepreneurship and tribe building.
As an infant, Jacob's parents moved from California to Boise, Idaho and converted to fundamentalist Christianity. He was raised in a rigid ideology, homeschooled and didn’t dance, drink, smoke or watch television.
• A natural seeker, Jacob began exploring success, psychology and spirituality as a teenager. • As a young adult, he broke away from his early religious influences and plunged into business.
He co-founded a mortgage company, a real-estate investment firm and a technology business—Velma.com.
After years of chasing success, he discovered that the path he had taken was leading far away from his inner purpose. • The financial melt-down of 2008 caused him to liquidate—and opened space for a new journey of personal discovery. • He evaluated all the stuck places in his life and began the process of losing weight, regaining health and enjoying inner peace.
He co-founded a charity community fitness effort called Fat For Food to benefit the Idaho Food Bank…
In 2009, he moved to Austin, TX and began his writing career.
His novel, The Divine Arsonist: A Tale of Awakening, was released in 2012 and he has appeared as a co-author with Jack Canfield and others in two additional books.
It's good to talk.
