As Outside Magazine correspondent Megan Michelson wrote it in the foreword of Wildpreneurs, Tamara Jacobi “is not just talk. She is big ideas and total action too.”
Wildpreneurs is a practical guide to finding one’s true purpose and pursuing it as a business. Not only is her writing captivating and fruitful, but the content of this memoir/how-to depict a true call to action — for the dreamer, the entrepreneurial free spirit, the do-er.
To prepare for the journey of “wildpreneuriship,” Jacobi outlines the lessons she’s learned by opening Tailwind Jungle Lodge, an eco-lodge in San Pancho, Mexico, while also drawing in wisdom from others who have “tuned into their wild hearts” as well. It’s an enticing blend of motivation and inspiration with actionable steps to help actually turn a passion into profit. While more in-depth financial advice can be found through other resources, Wildpreneurs is a joyful first step into the world of passion-led business.
At the conclusion of the book, a section titled “Power Pose” is there to give the reader a lasting dose of empowerment: “Give yourself a boost of support anytime with a power pose. Stand strong and tall with your arms stretched high above your head, like superman ready to fly …”
Given the turbulent past year, Wildpreneurs offers a space for unconventional thinkers ready to enact lasting change. Whether you’re an aspiring ski photographer, tree-house builder or meditation teacher, you’re bound to walk away with a newfound perspective in Jacobi’s words.
