Season Three, Episode Eight
Jake O’Brien is a young outgoing man who has always been fascinated with all things health & self development. He’s been thrown a whole bunch of challenges through his life, all of which he has found a way to overcome. Jake is passionate about fitness, mental health & showing up as the best he can be - no matter what!
I really enjoyed this conversation with Jake because - to put it simply, it’s raw. Jake is strong, honest & vulnerable and willing to be seen exactly where he is even while he’s still in the process of picking up the pieces.
Jake has been cancer-free for six months.
