For the rising number of free spirits seeking inspiration and a trail map to leave their safe but soul-crushing day jobs and chase their dreams, real-life Wildpreneur Tamara Jacobi shares her story, alongside the wisdom of Wildpreneurs globally, offering insight into what it takes to successfully make the leap. Prepare for an exploration of infinite possibilities for designing your life—personally and professionally.
Born in Vermont, Tamara’s free-spirited inspiration was sparked by family expeditions on a shoestring that included mountaineering Mexico’s volcanos, bike-packing the USA’s Continental Divide and kayaking the Sea of Cortez. This unique upbringing, combined with her degree in Environmental Economics at Middlebury College (VT), prompted Tamara to look beyond the status quo and create her wild business. Tamara founded the Tailwind Jungle Lodge in 2007. Her unique business on the Mexican Pacific attracts thousands of international guests and has become a venue for inspiration, adventure and fresh perspective. Tamara's debut book, Wildpreneurs, is published by HarperCollins Leadership.
