Episode 25: JT Nelms

If you’re a planner (who always has the plan, and the backup plan, and the backup backup plan), then this one is for you. My friend JT and I are here to break down why sometimes you’ve just gotta jump in and learn things the hard way. And yes, that sometimes means failing spectacularly. So much goodness in this one – it won’t keep you from failing but it’ll make it way less scary. 

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • Out of context quote: “I love the misery. Tell me your stories.” It’s true that we focus a lot on setbacks and struggles on this show, but JT’s story is SO damn good

  • JT slept on an air mattress in his office, and I slept in my car with my diabetic cat. The road to success isn’t always pretty, but luckily for you, you don’t have to be homeless to learn this business lesson.

  • Your business is NOT a freaking Kevin Costner movie, so if you’re doing this, STOP IT right now. (HINT – good business isn’t dependent on branding, graphics, or a website).

  • What does it mean to have HAPPI-ness in business? JT’s definition will blow your mind and shift your perspective.

  • Are you a “rage monster” when it comes to constructive feedback? I used to be, and here’s what happened when I started embracing the criticism instead of fighting it…

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!


JT’s Bio:

JT Nelms is the creator of Transformation, Travel, and Tacos!

(which just happens to be the coolest system ever for permanently elevating HAPPIness)  😉

First, discover your “Tacos”  <– a metaphor for both WHO you want to become and what truly brings you JOY.

Then, follow the scientifically proven blueprint for Transformation (because:  more Tacos!)

Finally, purposefully seek radical contrast through bucket list adventure Travel…

…where new perspectives refine and upgrade your original definition of Tacos –> and the cyclical journey begins again!

JT also helps people Get Fit for Travel and leads a hand-selected group each year on True Purpose Adventures to places like Machu Picchu, the Himalayas, and the summit of Kilimanjaro.

JT has yet to consider payment in actual tacos, but… you just. never. know.
