One Millennial’s Unconventional Path to Becoming A Published Author

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.

Today Milan, tomorrow Vietnam: A day in the life of a travel writer

Imagine that one day you wake up in Haifa, the next in Acre and the next in Jerusalem and so on. This sounds like a dream for some, maybe a whirlwind vacation for others, but it’s a very real part of Elisa della Barba’s job as a food and travel writer.

While most weeks aren’t as busy as that, her about.me page does list three cities: New York, Barcelona, and Milan.  And though Milan is the city she currently lives in and where she grew up, she’s lived in all three different places and travels to the other two at least once a year.

With such a fascinating job, we decided to interview Elisa to learn more about her, her favorite foods and travel destinations, and get a glimpse at her beautiful travel photography.
