Jamie Gruber is a former insurance executive who quit his high paying job to pursue his purpose of motivating and inspiring others to live their best lives.

A native New Yorker and Bostonian who now resides in Michigan, Jamie has become a real estate investor, podcast host, creator of the Emerge goal setting course and leader of the Ascend mastermind.

A high energy conversation that covers personal development, career progression, overcoming fears, developing awareness, and keeping momentum, Jamie brings the punch to kick off another year of the Veterinary Project Podcast in 2022!

Topics discussed include:

  • Living the American Dream…but being internally miserable
  • Ego vs. authentic self
  • “It was not fear of failure, it was fear of judgment”
  • Giving yourself time to think
  • Do you. Be you. Judgment will be there, just be aware of it
  • The power of “solo weekends”
  • Daily practices to keep taking action
  • Slow down to speed up by doing a weekly plan on Sunday
  • Accountability and proximity for transformation
  • Investing in YOU first
  • Finding a community for growth, and avoiding those who don’t support you
  • Building relationships with the coolest people in the world
  • Jamie’s Impact Round!
