Preparing for today’s interview was a piece of cake. I mean, when you’re talking to a man who’s met the Pope, walked on hot coals, and taught himself how to film his own documentary, things just kinda fall into place!
In part 1 of this interview, we discuss his documentary, Red Light Green Light, how Jared became a traveler, and how he got a book deal to travel 37,000 miles exploring religion and prayer.
And of course, we get a hilarious story that happens to have helped with that particular book deal.
I mean, how could there not be one!
Tune back in on Thursday for Part 2 of the interview where we discuss some of the crazier exploits of his journey around the world including visiting North Korea, an “Eco” farm in Costa Rica, and much, much more.
A big part of the idea at EPoP is giving back to the community. And the way that we do that?
Pencils of Promise
We were fortunate enough with the Paradise Pack to raise enough funds so that in conjunction with Pencils of Promise we were able to fund the building of a school in Guatemala
We built a school!
And we couldn’t have done it without YOU! (We’really excited!)
Today, the founder of Pencils of Promise, Adam Braun, joins me for an overview of Pencils of Promise, how it came to be, and how travel has completely changed his life, time and time again.
Jason will be taking over the interview baton and interviewing Adam as well this week for a more in-depth look at the Pencils of Promise organization, so be sure to head over to Zero to Travel to check out the other half of this interview!
We’re back today with part 2 of our interview with the founder of Bluffworks, Stefan Loble.
In this portion of the interview, we focus on travel.
Stefan’s favorite place to travel (you might be surprised if I hadn’t mentioned it on last week’s podcast…), his acts of rebellion, traveling like the locals, and of course travel mishaps.
A lot of travel mishaps.
We also discuss how he managed to fly first class, on an economy ticket, why you should style your travels around the things you already love to do, and my favorite part…

This is part 2 of a 2 part interview. In part 1 we discuss how Bluffworks got started, how Stefan managed to balance a 9-5 with a new successful business, and a lot of great information on running Kickstarter campaigns (with an announcement for a new one!)
Animals don’t run towards things. They run away from something.
Stefan Loble feels an affinity for this idea. For years he’d been having ideas for businesses he could start, but he never followed through on any of them.
Until he got really sick of washing his pants.
Running away from laundry led him to his current full-time job as the founder of Bluffworks.
Bluffworks creates awesome travel/work pants that don’t wrinkle and can go days without care.
Stefan joins me today to talk about finally following through on his ideas and becoming an entrepreneur, why it’s the hardest thing he’s ever done (with stories for comparison), and how he managed to balance his new business with his 9-5 job as a software programmer.
