Jake Ducey is an author and global speaker who dropped out when he was 19 years old and then independently released his first book entitled Into The Wind about quitting college basketball to backpack the world. Without a publisher or budget, he made it to the top 300 of all books on Amazon.

He recently released a new book called The Purpose Principles with a foreword written by Jack Canfield, creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, who TIME declared “the publishing phenomenon of the decade”.
