This Week’s Guest; Jeremy Slate
Do not follow your passion, find your skillset and get so damn good at something you become passionate about it.
Today on the show, we have a fascinating guest who we have been fortunate enough to have been good friends with for some time now.
Jeremy is the Co-Founder of Get Featured which helps individuals get featured on the some of the greatest podcast around the world (including ours, hint hint). Along with his business partner Daniel Geffin, they have both been on the other side of the mic and have been featured in major publications as well as mainstream media.
Both Jeremy and Daniel know first hand how hard it is to be featured on podcasts, having both created their own. Jeremy is the proud host of the Create Your Own Life podcast which has reached over 100,000 downloads in its first year.
He started his journey as a personal trainer while obtaining his theology degree at Oxford University. After getting into what he thought was his dream job of becoming a teacher, he quickly realised that the role wasn’t for him.
Until one day, Jeremy’s wife stumbled upon a network marketing opportunity that he thought was going to make him a millionaire. But, like most network marketing opportunities he worked more hours than in his previous role trying to sell the dream to others.
Blinded by the thought of needing to get his hands on money, he took any opportunity he could get his hands on, not to mention the issues he faced while his mother had fallen ill.
Jeremy’s journey only becomes even more fascinating from there. Which we extensively go into during this interview.
