Jiu-Jitsu Outlet #4: Drew Weatherhead "When You Wanna Give Up, Do You Give Up?"

Posted by Paul Tokgozoglu on

Training in martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Judo, wrestling, & Muay Thai is my outlet for improving my mental health and becoming a better person.

On this fourth episode of the show, I interview Drew Weatherhead - host of the Social Disorder podcast, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, creator of the Because Jitsu comedy Instagram page, & NFT creator.

After leaving his blue collar career as a welder, Drew opened a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in Alberta, Canada and developed a successful student base... Until COVID hit in 2019 and shut down the country.

On this episode, we discuss Drew's journey of overcoming obstacles and how he pivoted from a "rock bottom" scenario in his career and began a life as a digital nomad. After successfully navigating the situation and beginning a new career in the NFT space, Drew and his family are able to travel the world and work from anywhere they choose. 

This is an episode you do NOT want to miss.
