Jake Ducey will be the first to tell you that he’s anything but conventional. The 23-year-old author of Into the Wind and The Purpose Principles didn’t take what many would consider the traditional path after high school.
As a student-athlete at California Lutheran University, Jake was going through the motions and found that he was struggling to find meaning in everything that he was doing. When he realized that his college life style of playing basketball, partying, and studying business was taking a toll on his happiness, he decided to leave school.
Upon leaving behind his college life, Jake embarked on a 6-month journey that took him to places like Guatemala, Australia, Thailand, and more. During this time, he found his calling of motivating millennials just like him. Today, he works to help young people find meaning in their lives.
We interviewed Jake to learn more about his story, his journey and how he went from college dropout to a published author with a passion.
