Jedidiah Jenkins on Finding Your Purpose

About This Episode

Jedidiah Jenkins is a travel writer who lives with life with intention and purpose.

He wrote a New York Times-bestselling book about his experience and has inspired thousands of people to engage their own lives with similar curiosity and passion. He is also the executive editor of Wilderness magazine.

In this episode, Branden and Jedidiah talk about the nuance of purpose, how it’s different from what we imagine, and how we can find it — or at least get started in the right direction.
