    #35 TNT What is the THEORY? (Part 2)

    #35 TNT What is the THEORY? (Part 2)

    THE NOMAD THEORY in a nutshell: People who explore before deciding what to do with their lives, don’t regret it.

    As some listeners and readers have mentioned, the focus of TNT may seem "all over the place!"

    I agree with this. But at the same time, is a nomad not "all over the place?"

    #34 TNT Jack Wheeler: Cultural Preservation, Win-Win Business Models, and Living with Amazonian Tribes.

    #34 TNT Jack Wheeler: Cultural Preservation, Win-Win Business Models, and Living with Amazonian Tribes.

    Non-profit organizations are not the only ways to help people who need help. In fact, sometimes non-profits are less effective.
    This is why Jack Wheeler founded Xapiri the way he did. As an organization that makes money as they fulfill their mission: "to increase awareness and inspire positive change for the Amazon and its stewards."
    Listen to episode #34 of TNT to hear how Jack Wheeler and Xapiri are preserving Amazonian culture and supporting ethnic artists -- while simultaneously running a sustainable business. 
    Their online Reports are some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen on the internet. https://ancestraltransmission.xapiri.com/part-1
    Jack and his team of cultural documentarians have relationships with 10 ethnic groups in the Amazon Rainforest. They work with them in several capacities, but the focus is always on the arts. A middle-aged woman from the Matsés  tribe for example, may weave a bracelet using yarn she spun herself, into a traditional pattern. 

    Normally, someone in the tribe would wear it as a decorative piece. But because of Jack and Xapiri, the tribeswoman can send her creation to Cusco and receive a high price relative to any other retail method available.  The profits are then split between the artist and Xapiri, creating a balanced Win-Win business model. 
    In this episode of TNT, Jack and I talk about how Jack started Xapiri and where he sees it evolving in the future. I feel lucky know Jack and am inspired by his creativity in the space of Cultural Preservation. 
    Xapiri is very active on Instagram @Xapiri  sharing up to date, accurate news about the rainforest and conservation efforts. Their website (xapiri.com) has plenty of information about and gorgeous photos of the ethnic groups as well as an online store where you can buy products and support their vision. 
    As per usual, thanks for listening to THE NOMAD THEORY!

    On January 23, 2019, I was impregnated by a mysterious woman, who wore a white dress, while standing by the pineapples.

    She showed me a glimpse of what it feels like to be a mother.

Long live the gap year!

Hey, if you're about to graduate high school, or even in college and not sure what you're doing there, give this a listen.

Gap years are important, so are projects. Let Chuck/ AC show you what's possible.

I am the host

Lol, I am the host giving myself a 5 star review, because I love THE NOMAD THEORY! It is something I truly love making, even when the scheduling and tech obstacles lay their battered bodies down in front of me ready to strike as if their honor depended on whever I could smash them to bits or not. In other words, I really like hosting the show and will keep putting out episodes for a long time.
