Entrepreneur Junkie w/ Jaime Atkinson

Extra Pack Of Peanuts Podcast Entrepreneur Junkie w/ Jaime Atkinson

I am stoked to be talking today with my buddy, Jaime Atkinson from The EntrepreneurJunkie.co because I am extremely proud of his journey, his passion for entrepreneurship, and his unflinching honesty.

Today, we dive into his life story which includes the epic curveball that started him down this path, how The Paradise Pack helped launch him into the location independent lifestyle, and how he has navigated through the ups and downs of figuring out what works and what really doesn’t in his businesses. Jaime is a powerhouse of truth and is not afraid to be open about everything when it comes to his life in business so you will definitely walk away today knowing that you can do this and that your mess may end up being your message.
