Jimmy Diresta is a YouTuber with over one million fans. There are distinct reasons for that. Not only is Jimmy incredibly talented and creative, he is also a great guy. Not that Jimmy needed any help to attract his fans, but Jimmy is also the first person I am sharing on the podcast who has done work with me… integrating more layers to create a meaningful vision for his life.
Come on in and find out why Jimmy is such an inspiration to those around him and how he took his natural interests and developed them into a career that he has used to fulfill his short term and long term goals.
