I’m Jacob Nordby and I have delusions of a better way to live. My whole life from earliest memory has been a steep uphill climb of self-discovery. If you can identify with that feeling, then I hope you’ll stick around. We have much to talk about.

I spent years chasing down the entrepreneurial American Dream–and, as exciting as that wild ride was, I discovered that my deepest desires were not for wealth and fame. I desire to “give birth the to best that lies within”…to discover and explore and experience all of life. My awakening to this led me to start the process of shedding much of what I had built up around myself.

I lost over 65 lbs and began to seriously examine what my life was really all about. During this stretch of the path, I encountered Rob Brezsny‘s wonderfully zany book, Pronoia.  In it, he used the term “Rowdy Creators” and I have been captivated by the idea ever since.

So, my fellow wanderer…if you find yourself always stepping to the beat of a slightly different drum…if you are fascinated by how life unfolds…if you long for a simpler, more peaceful existence…I hope you’ll join me. Together, let’s gather up our scattered energies and press forward into new frontiers of creation and bliss.
