At age 23, Jake Ducey, is lighting this world on fire and inspiring others to ditch the traditional playbook of life and to truly focus on living life to it’s fullest and being happy!
Jake first realized he wasn’t on the path he should be as a 19-year-old college student.
Books by people like Jack Canfield, and a 6-month backpacking trip around the world with no map, led to his journey of personal discovery and provided some of the enlightenment and experiences that allowed Jake to write his first book that year.
This, in itself, could have posed a significant challenge considering Jake admits that english and writing were his worst subjects as a student.
However, Jake’s belief is, “You can gain any skill or overcome any sign of weakness that you think you have, if you have the write intention.”
After self-publishing, “Into the Wind”, Jake got noticed by one of the greats he looked up to, Jack Canfield, and was also picked up by a major publishing house to write his brand new book, “The Purpose Principals”.
Jake’s inspiration for writing The Purpose Principals was that many of the iconic success stories of entrepreneurs and celebrities we see often start with failures and overcoming enormous challenges.
Those “pre-success” stories are what Jake looks to tell in The Purpose Principals.
Being an up-and-coming writer, Jake had to do a good part of the research into the pasts of people like Jay-Z and Brad Pitt on his own through countless hours of scouring articles online.
It’s his hope and goal that hearing the stories of others who have reached almost inconceivable levels of success and finding out that they are just people, and that they had to struggle in the beginning as well, will spark more young people to follow their dreams and passions.
Jake’s ultimate goal is to inspire activism in entrepreneurialism by imploring entrepreneurs to want to build successful businesses, not just for the sake of padding their own bank accounts, but to give them the opportunity to give back and to make a difference in our culture and in the world.
Jake’s new book, “The Purpose Principals” comes out the day this interview is released, January 2nd, 2015!
