The Need to Know with Stephan Zimmermann

Jan 8, 2020

Hey guys and welcome back to another episode of The Need to Know podcast. Thank you guys so much for taking the time out of your week, to learn and grow with me and hear from some of the top performers in the world in a wide range of fields. I've thoroughly been enjoying the ability to speak and meet with my amazing guests and hope that you have enjoyed it as well! If you have been enjoying these episodes, I would love it if you took a few seconds to go to the iTunes store to rate my podcast as that would mean so much to me!

Today I have a really exciting and thought-provoking conversation for you with self-taught freelance photographer and storyteller, Jacob Moon (@moonmountainman). As someone who is a big lover of the outdoors, especially hiking and mountain climbing, Jacob started to take pictures of his hikes and outdoor adventures as a way to save and capture these incredible moments that he had. Sharing them on Instagram, Jacob rather quickly found himself gaining traction online. This traction soon turned into some work opportunities which led Jacob to the difficult decision of either staying in his set and steady job as a nurse or taking the leap and trying to build a career as a freelance photographer and storyteller.

As one who is not afraid of taking risks and after a discussion with his wife, Jacob decided to take the leap and transition into a full-time career as an entrepreneur. Needless to say, after making that decision, Jacob has not looked back. With around half a million followers on Instagram, Jacob uses his platform to showcase the amazing adventures he has together with his wife and kid and the great brands that he works with as well.

In today's discussion with Jacob, we discuss how he made the transition from full-time nurse to a freelance photographer, some of the incredible adventures he has had and trips that he has been on, how he converted a cargo van into a home on wheels and much more.

Super excited to share this with you and hope that you will enjoy it!

So without further ado, please meet Jacob
