Starting & Scaling a Successful Regenerative Ranching Business w/ Jacob Wolki
Jacob Wolki is an Australian entrepreneur and regenerative farmer. He started out in his family’s record store, then moved to selling bicycles, and in 2019, went down the regenerative farming rabbit-hole, which he’s now built into a rapidly growing full-time business.
I first came across his work when he released a video which went viral, in which he showed how his un-staffed retail location worked.
Many bitcoiners, including myself, are increasingly interested in the subject of regenerative farming/ranching, so I was excited to speak with someone who entered the space with no formal background, and has been successful in turning it into a career that is enjoyable, fulfilling, and lucrative.
Jake appears to be an honest, hard-working, principled, and thoughtful guy, and it was a pleasure to get to get to know him and learn from him in this discussion.
