Kurshot Akyuz (@kurshot) is a digital nomad, adventurer, freedom seeker, friend, and creator of the online program Ultimate Freedom Lifestyle. I was excited to reconnect with my friend Kurshot to pick his brain on topics like building an online course for aspiring digital nomads, studying the ways of Tony Robbins, Tim Ferriss, and Gary V, taking psychedelics, softening the ego, and finding the space to step back from grinding to gain perspective on what's really important in life. I'm inspired...

Today I'm joined by my two younger brothers, Duncan (25; @smartdunc) and Philip (20; @philipsmart) to discuss stories of mischief and misbehavior, our influence on each other's life paths, how we contribute to the family, the role of creativity in our lives, and what brotherhood means to us.   It's such a treat to get my family involved with this on-going project, and I thank my brothers for engaging in something that might be out of their comfort zone. I think we are all stronger because of...

Hannah Pruett (@lovely_dirt) is a student of life, holistic health, and listener of the Thinking with David Podcast. This dialogue blew me away while simultaneously solidifying my hope for future generations. Hannah is well beyond her age (19), and you'll soon understand why as she shares her journey of overcoming anxiety before diving into topics like bio-individuality, the life-changing model of Spiral Dynamics, meditation, post-modern nutrition, and much, much more. I hope you choose to...

The time has come! My brothers Bradley Lovell (@bradleyjlovell) and Alex Skold (@skoldblooded) gathered together to join me in exploring the depths of radical honesty. In an effort to reduce our bias, expand our limited individual perspectives and grow closer as friends, we discussed beliefs, vices, pleasures, addictions, sex, drugs, alcohol and social media before turning our attention outward to ROAST our fellow brothers. This is likely the most vulnerable and honest public conversation any...

Hey You! What a special day it is today :) I'm so incredibly excited to share with you that my new book, The Trail Provides: A Boy's Memoir of Thru-Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, is now available for purchase on Amazon!  There's so much I could say about the book, but I think it speaks for itself. That's where you'll find all the stories, lessons learned, acknowledgments, and hopefully some laughs, insights, and inspiration. Enjoy!
