The Jake Hemingway talk on adventure shares his personal experience embarking on a five day skateboard trip around the island of Taiwan. Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, the speaker came to Taiwan as a missionary with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as a 19 year old.
The entrepreneur has been involved in numerous startup ventures in both the United States and Taiwan. In addition to writing a blog called 'Rewriting Rules' (which is mentioned in the Jake Hemingway talk), the professional skateboarder also has a daily YouTube show.
His personal philosophy of "doing is better than perfection" encourages people to step outside their comfort zone, stop overthinking and take action (especially if it involves travel).
