Ep 85: Jamin Heppell- Life transformation through mountains and marathons

As the oldest of 3 boys in a competitive family in Australia, Jamin Heppell developed two passions very early in life: athletic excellence and leadership. After founding several businesses and hitting severe burnout, he completely changed course and co-founded an incredibly successful company called Mountains and Marathons, allowing people from all walks of life to experience transformative adventures in unique locations all over the world.

Despite having endured 2 knee reconstructions and 4 arthroscopes, Jamin has run a marathon on 6 continents, climbed Mt. Everest Base Camp, summited Mt Kilimanjaro 8 times, completed 3 ultramarathons, and is in the Guinness Book of World Records.

You’ll hear:

  • What it was like to grow up in a hyper-competitive home
  • Why he spent a lot of his teen years on crutches
  • What caused him to pursue leadership and coaching
  • How he navigated career burnout and completely changed direction
  • What he believes to be more important than winning
  • His advice for anyone who wants to pursue a new vision for their life
