After spending one semester in college during which time he made the dean's list and many friends, Jake Heilbrunn knew something was wrong. Depressed, anxiety ridden and breaking out in chronic hives, he realized that the path he was on didn't align with his true self. Following his intuition, Jake left college and spent four months backpacking through Central America alone, with no cell phone or ability to speak Spanish. Jake's remarkable story was featured on The Ziglar Show, a top five business podcast on iTunes. His book detailing his experiences, due out this summer, is intended to inspire others to courageously follow their intuition and pursue their own true path.
